What is “Direct Linking” and can I do it with ClickMagick?

Direct Linking describes the practice of sending visitors directly from an ad to an affiliate link, without any other pages or sales funnel in between.

Ad platforms like Google Ads and Bing generally hate this practice because you aren’t providing any additional, unique value to the user compared to the thousands of other affiliates promoting the same link.

On the other hand, you would not be Direct Linking if you first sent the visitor to a pre-sell page, opt-in page or your own pre-sell funnel before sending them on to the affiliate offer.

With that being said, you can use ClickMagick Tracking Links for Direct Linking.

But you won’t be able to use ClickMagick Campaigns with Direct Linking, because Campaigns requires the addition of tracking code to at least one webpage prior to the user being presented with an offer.
