What’s one of your biggest fears when you’re buying paid traffic?
For me, it’s an error happening on my landing page while I’m busy.
I remember times where I’ve lost money overnight because the server crashed while I was sleeping. Your landing page may be down, but the traffic source is still going to keep sending those clicks.

Tracking your data is essential if you want to succeed as an affiliate marketer.
How are you going to make money if you’re not sure EXACTLY which ads are converting?
