I am looking to have a facebook application created that is very similar to the My Aquarium app. You can see that application here:
[url removed, login to view]
My application will just have a different theme instead of an aquarium. When a user adds the application to their profile I want it to first ask them to refer friends. It must have a points system, where users can use points to buy certain items. Users also should be able to send items to their friends. In order to earn more points, users can select from a variety of CPA offers, and on completion, the credits will be awarded to their account. I don't fully understand how the tracking works, but here is an excerpt from [url removed, login to view] explaining it:
The most effective way to track back user action is by passing us a unique identifier through the URL string. The most obvious would be their FB userid. Within Millnic Media you will find two different types of URLs to send your traffic to us.
[url removed, login to view] links
[url removed, login to view] link
With [url removed, login to view] links there is a paramater called ’sub’
[url removed, login to view];cd=CD4&c=1338&sub=
so you would make that param = $fb_userid
Lets say the fb user id is 456789 then the link would look like this:
[url removed, login to view];cd=CD4&c=1338&sub=456789
with affiliate. links you simply append the subid to the end of the URL.
so the link would look like:
[url removed, login to view]
You can append absolutely anything and have it return as a sub id.
You then write a script which regularly fetches conversion results from us. On the Millnic Media Statistics Page there is a button called ‘Download Optional Info”.
This will return a CSV file with a list of all the leads you generated and the sub params that you passed to us.
Now here is the complicated bit… Not all campaigns are tracked in real time. Users take varying amounts of time to complete the offers (2 minutes to 2 hours). Advertisers are given a reasonable amount of time to run automated fraud, bad leads and duplicate lead discovery queries (a few minutes). Third party pixel tracking systems cache data and update at regular intervals (usually every half hour). It sucks but is the reality of the industry. Many CPA vendors will make claims that their offers track in real time, but here at Millnic Media, we prefer to skip over the bullshit spin doctoring and just tell you the truth.
So thats the problem, now here is the solution.
A) Let your users know UP FRONT that there is a delay in the tracking and that you have to wait for the ‘advertisers to report back to you’. Which will take anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours.
This project will require some graphic design but it will be very simple work.
