Tracking and measuring your influencer activity is essential to understanding the success of your campaigns and shaping future partnerships. Alongside analyzing metrics like reach and engagement, it’s best practice to include tracking links to uncover which influencers are driving impact through traffic and conversions. Tracking links can help to accurately attribute the success of your influencer activity against any other marketing initiatives for your brand.

Klear enables you to create tracking links and the UTM builder in Connect allows for the creation of basic or more complex tracking links that conform to your existing UTM structure. Instead of using predefined parameters for all influencers or manually creating your UTM code for tracking links, the link builder allows you to configure 5 standard parameters (source, medium, campaign, term, and content) and assign them with variables from your campaign or include free text. You can also include custom parameters beyond these 5 to match any other reporting templates you have in place.
