Influencer/Affiliate

Our Influencer Tracking is deeply integrated with our Influencer/Affiliate Google Sheet Datasource. Influencers are tracked via UTM parameters and discount codes.

Parameters

In general, there are no specific parameters required to track your Influencers with the Klar tracking pixel. However, three things must be true in order to achieve the highest accuracy tracking results and see them in your reports:

  • You need to use UTM parameters to track your Influencers. Some brands only rely on discount codes, however, this only provides you with a part of the puzzle.

  • The Influencer and the according UTM parameters + discount code need to be entered into Klar’s Influencer/Affiliate sheet.

  • At least one of the UTM parameters has to be a unique identifier for the specific Influencer. For example, if you're using utm_term as your unique id each name can only be used by one Influencer.

If you don't have a UTM parameter strategy in place for your Influencers, or want to optimize your existing setup, we strongly recommend using the following configuration:

IMPORTANT: Make sure to replace the below dynamic values with actual values when creating your links.

utm_source = PLATFORM (dynamic - e.g. facebook / instagram / tiktok)

utm_medium = influencer (static)

utm_campaign = CAMPAIGN NAME (dynamic - e.g. january / winter / summersale)

utm_term = INFLUENCER NAME (dynamic - e.g. pamela / dagibee)
