Top Tool Tip: Create-a-Feed

Written by Jasmin on . Posted in Awin Tools

The Create-a-feed tool is designed to make product feed creation easy and user friendly. It can be found in the links and tools section of your account. Be aware that if you haven’t used it before it may take some time to load as we will be retrieving an API for your use.

To create the feed:

First, click on “select advertisers” and select the ones that you want in your feed. It will show you how many products that advertiser adds to the feed. Once saved, it will take you back to the main screen where you can see an increase in the total amount of products in the feed. If you then want specific brands or specific categories, you can include these by repeating the same process but with the different sections. Each time you filter it, the total amount of products in the feed will decrease.

Affiliate Window has a number of great features that you may not be aware of. In the run up to the Holiday season, we will be publishing a series of Top Tool Tips. These tips will allow you to make the most of features such as Create-a-Feed and Content Widgets to benefit from this busy festive season.

Top Tool Tip: Advertiser Tab

The Advertiser tab is a great starting point when logging into the interface for the first time.

By exporting our full advertiser list, you can view all the advertisers on the network, including detailed information on each, in an Excel or CSV format. You can do this by going to the ‘’Advertiser’’ tab and ensure you have the ‘’All Programs’’ tab highlighted. From here you can then click on ‘’Options’’, ‘’Export for Excel’’ on the top right hand side to view all advertisers and information such as their primary sector, conversion rate and average validation period to name a few. This can help you if you only want to work with a select number of advertisers, i.e. those with the highest conversion rates or those from a particular sector.
