FAQ


PowerTrax collects and stores website visitor data. It was specifically designed for direct marketing firms that use a combination of online and offline media to advertise client products and services. Data from visitors referred by offline media (i.e. television, radio, magazine) can be exported for use with third party media tracking software solutions.

Offline media ads (i.e. TV, newspaper, magazine...etc) direct visitors to a specific tracking URL. PowerTrax collects visitor data and passes the visitor to the clients main website.

EXAMPLE - The subdomain buy.myproduct.com is advertised in offline ads. When a visitor reaches that destination PowerTrax instantly collects all accessible visitor data and redirects the visitor to the clients main website.

The PowerTrax minimum monthly subscription rate is $99/month. Ten tracking units are included with each subscription. Each additional tracking unit costs $10/month. See our pricing page for more details.

A tracking unit is either a tracking URL or tracking pixel.

Yes, PowerTrax can work with any website.

A URL and Domain refer to the same thing - your main website address (i.e. www.mywebsite.com). A sub-domain or a prefix URL, as some refer to it, contains a unique identifier BEFORE the main website address (i.e. buy.myproduct.com). A suffix URL contains a unique identifier AFTER the website address (i.e. www.myproduct.com/buy). A vanity URL is an easy to remember domain name (i.e. www.buymyproduct.com).

Simply put, URL tracking logs visitor data, then redirects them to the website of your choice. The tracking data can then be fed to your reporting mechanisms, which can help determine the effectiveness of differing advertising campaigns.

PowerTrax runs on the Microsoft's Windows Azure SQL database platform. Microsoft has a 99.9% uptime guarantee.

The number is virtually unlimited. PowerTrax can track several subdomains, suffixes, vanity URL's and tracking pixels for each campaign.

A tracking pixel is a small bit of code associated with a single pixel that reports the visit back to the tracking server. It is invisible to the user, but PowerTrax can utilize tracking pixels on landing pages, order pages and confirmation pages to collect data to build for sales funnel reporting.
