We want to set up affiliate links for which affiliates can get credit if a user comes from their site to ours and purchases our product. Unfortunately HubSpot doesn’t offer this service. We can do it from WordPress but want most initial contact to come through HubSpot. Here is the process we need.
- User click on an affiliate ad/link (i.e. www examplesite com?afil=affiliateid) that brings them to our HubSpot site…
- User goes through our funnel filling out their name, e-mail, etc. on different forms on each page of the funnel.
- At the end if the funnel the user clicks on an “Order Now” button which takes them to our WordPress site which has the affiliate software. This link needs to have the same affiliateID that came from the initial link (i.e. www wordpress examplesite com?afil=affiliateid).
I have two ideas left and I need your help!
IDEA 2. Put the query string value into a hidden field on an initial form and use it later. Have a form on all Landing Pages and add the affiliate ID to a hidden field on said form to add the affiliate ID to the user data.This post gave me the idea: Cookie Question. The question here would be if we add the affiliate id to the user from the URL query string via a hidden form field, can we later put that in a link after they have submitted everything in order to send them to the WordPress site and give credit to the affiliate?
Please help me in developing any of these ideas. I should be able to program it but need to know which direction is possible within HubSpot.
