Getting Started with Tracking Links

Once your affilate account has been set up on HeatSpring, there are multiple ways to find your special tracking links. For all options you will first need to be logged into your account at www.heatspring.com/account and your account must be an owner or manager of the affilaite account.

  1. View All Tracking Links
    • Click "Affiliate Home" from the drop down menu under your name in the upper left hand corner
    • Click "Tracking Links" tab
  2. Grab the link for any HeatSpring.com page
    • Browse to the HeatSpring page you want a tracking link generated for
    • Click "Track This Page" from the drop down menu under your name in the upper left hand corner
    • Copy the url from the url bar in your browser
  3. Request a short url from Duncan
    • We have the ability to create shortened urls if you plan to have one affiliate url that you use everywhere, just ask Duncan to generate it.

Tracking URL Structure

The special tracking link must include the "aff_id" paramenter set in the url. For example:

https://heatspring.com/courses/nec-2017-2020-solar-storage-requirements?aff_id=hfxdj8

The parameter is this part after the "?":

aff_id=hfxdj8

Where aff_id is the parameter name and hfxdj8 is the parameter value. The value here is the id for the Affiliate account so that always stays the same on every one of your tracking links and must be included in order for the link to properly work.
