This document outlines how Campaigns are created in CAKE Basic.
A Campaign is the relationship between an Affiliate and an Offer they are driving traffic to.

Manually Creating A Campaign


The "Create a Campaign" Wizard can be accessed from multiple parts of the interface.

  1. You can also create a Campaign from the Affiliate Card or the Offer Card under their respective Campaigns tabs.
  2. Additionally, you can access the wizard from the Affiliates Main Tab hover menu as seen above.

Offer: The Offer you are making available to the Affiliate.
Media Type: The type of media your Affiliate is intending to use to drive traffic to your Offer.
