Integration

The integration does not require any direct data exchange between Episerver Campaign and intelliAd. You must have an intelliAd account. In Episerver Campaign, intelliAd is integrated into the mailing creation process. The software uses link masking to redirect all links in a tracked mailing via the intelliAd server. The masked links are automatically generated and include multiple parameters enabling them to be assigned to a distinct client. You merely have to generate an ID string in intelliAd and enter it in the intelliAd tab when creating the mailing. When clicking on a masked link, the recipient will first be redirected to the intelliAd tracking server (without noticing this). The tracking server analyzes the parameters included in the extension and saves them in the database. The recipient is then redirected to the actual target page.

Link extension

The following parameters are added to each link in a mailing for tracking via intelliAd:

  • intelliAdcustomerId: Identifies you as the intelliAd customer.
  • marktId: Identifies Episerver Campaign as the source of the link.
  • channelId: Identifies the marketing channel, usually email or newsletter, for links from a mailing.

Each block of numbers encodes one of the link parameters specified above, with the exception of the last parameter subId. The parameter subId is generated from Episerver Campaign.
