It's simple and takes just a few minutes to set up your account to automatically import data from supported affiliate networks. Follow these steps to allow Click Precision to match revenue, products and traffic to gain valuable data so you can make critical decisions regarding your spend and focus on the campaign, adgroup and keyword level. Organic traffic revenue is imported as well!
