With the holiday season in full swing and everyone at the peak of their shopping, it’s the best time of the year promote and share your Zazzle referral links on your websites, blogs and social media channels. Speaking of promoting, we wanted to remind you about our Holiday Referral Contest – if you haven’t joined yet, now’s the time!
The goal of the contest is to earn as many referrals as you can between November 24th, 2015 and December 25th, 2015 by sharing links on your blog, website or social media sites with your Associate ID (referral code) attached. You must submit your Associate ID to this form in order to be considered for one of the prizes. Learn more about the prizes and the contest Terms & Conditions here.
Want to make sure you’re making the most of the season and this contest? Here are 3 tips to help you with your promotional efforts:
Tip #1: Use a tracking code in your referral links.
You can add tracking to your links by using the “tc” parameter, which means adding “&tc=” at the end of your referral link. Your actual tracking code, which will follow the “tc” parameter, can be anything of your choosing up to 100 alphanumeric characters (and _ ) in length. You can create your own tracking code for each channel you use for your promotional efforts (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, blog, etc.) to help you see where your referrals are coming from.
Example (using your referral code parameter, ?rf= , and tracking code)
Referral ID: 238123456789101112
Referral link: www.zazzle.com?rf=238123456789101112
Tracking code: facebook_campaign_13072015
