Q: What is a campaign?
A: Banners and text links will only show the impressions, clicks and signups from your referred traffic. The ticket sales, however, are pooled into a total in the report. A campaign can be used to measure sales from a particular traffic source. So for example, if you are promoting us via email and also via your website, creating a seperate campaign will allow you to see the sales made via each source.

A: When you signed up for an account you were assigned a default campaign. To create additional campaigns click on ACCOUNT > CAMPAIGNS > and then CREATE a campaign.
