Learn How To Use Mobidea

Sometimes, even the most user-friendly interface can cause trouble. That’s why it’s important to get to know all Mobidea’s undiscovered tips and functionalities as soon as possible.

Whether you define yourself as a long-term expert, part-time user or simply a newbie, this post is for you.

You have either the Tutorial video or the written article below to get to know the main sections and tools you can find while making it rain on Mobidea!

Mobidea’s Dashboard

Once you’re logged into Mobidea you’ll find yourself on the account’s overview section – the dashboard.

It displays essential information about your account and your revenues while also keeping you updated with all the fresh Mobidea news.

Check the main points on the image below:

Mobidea Guide1

1 – Your current balance.

2 – The number of signups for the current month and the percentage comparing this number of signups with the number of signups from the same period of the past month.

3 – Your current monthly revenue and the percentage comparing this revenue with the one from the same period of the past month.

4 – Opportunities section. Here you can find the current opportunity segments, their eCPMs and the volumes for both Smartlink and Single Offers. Use the filter on the right and choose if you want to check the best choice for either countries or carriers.

5 – News feed: all the events, tips, articles, updates and much more in one place.

6 – The main menu. Here you can find reports, tools, account settings, etc.

Mobidea – Menu bar

Now let’s take a closer look at the Mobidea’s menu tabs, analyzing one by one.

1 – Reports

Keep an eye on your results by using the reports data.

Mobidea Guide2

1 – Choose the period for which you want to analyse your data.

2 – Use the options to visualize the trend  by visits, signups, revenues, ratio or eCPM.

3 – Use the tabs to see the results according to the rule and use the filter to target your campaigns’ features. Click on the selected Smartlink if you wish to check the data coming only from a specific link.

2 – Smart tools

The Smart tools section happens to be the second most important place to visit, right after reports. It has everything you need to start working.

As a first step, you have a division by verticals: adult and mainstream. Choose the verticals you want and select the advertising methods you need by exploring the features.

Don’t forget about the referral link. You can also find it there, share it with your friends and earn more by receiving 5% of their cool revenues

2.1 – Smartlink

Here, you can create a new Smartlink and check the ones you’ve already made. You can also change the track1 and track2 that will later appear on your stats.

Mobidea Guide3

Enter the advanced options and configure the Smartlink’s settings as shown on the picture below:

Mobidea Guide4

1 – Postback – set the link and customize the rules. We already have an integration with Voluum and Adsbridge – it couldn’t be easier 🙂

Mobidea Guide5

2 – Performance Fallback – allows you to earn more with no risk by sending part of your traffic to the best option you’ve got! You can set it by country, carrier, minimum eCPM and even dayparting. For details, please check our post about performance fallback.

Mobidea Guide6

3 – APK, Auto downloads and Back offers – check your traffic sources and feel free to enable or disable options according to the requirements.

Always remember you’ve gotta play by the rules – you’ll be reminded of their importance every time you change the settings.

Mobidea Guide7

2.2 – Popunder

One of the advertising spots Mobidea allows you to integrate in your website. It opens a new browser window, hidden under the active window.

It takes only three steps to set it:

a) choose the Smartlink for which you want the pop under to appear;

b) set the Track 1 and Track 2, if you need them;

c) set the Frequency Capping (limits the number of times the popunder is going to appear to the same user). Once it’s done, you can copy the code below.

2.3 – Overlay

This type of ad covers your site with a semi-transparent background. Visitors must “close” the ad to fully view the site. Unlike pop ads, overlays can’t be blocked.

The steps to implement it are just the same as for previous ads. Configure the settings and copy the code 😉

2.4 – Banner

Mobidea provides three types of iframes (according to the size of our banner) that you want to implement on your side: 300×250, 300×100 and 305×99.

Just choose for which Smartlink you’re going to use them and copy the code.

Bear in mind that – if there’s any size that’s not supported by us and you’d like to use your own creative – you can simply use the banner you’ve got and link it with our Smartlink on your website. It’s that easy!

2.5 – Redirects

Redirect is a technique for making a web page available on more than one URL address. It will redirect the traffic to the offer.

There’s four different ways of implementing it:

  1. .htaccess file
  2. PHP Code
  3. WordPress plugin
  4. Java ScriptMobidea Guide8

No matter which method you choose, you’ve gotta pick the right Smartlink for each one of them. You’ll also have to select the traffic type you’d like to redirect (all, all mobile, or only mobile operator traffic).

As always, don’t forget to copy the code 😉

2.6 – Opportunities

Mobidea Guide9

This section allows you to keep an eye on the opportunities you can’t miss if you’ve got that sweet cash on your mind!

Select the tab of countries in order to see general volumes, ratio and eCPM by country, or choose the Carriers tab to see the info by carriers.

As always, don’t forget to use the filter to quickly find exactly what you need. Once you spot the gold mine, just go for it!

It’ll automatically redirect you to your own Smartlink for you just to copy it and start earning big!

3 – Single Offers

As always, on Mobidea, we think about our affiliates and their needs. That’s why we’ve launched the Single Offers option, making sure you’ve got a whole new world of opportunities to make money!

After this life-changing implementation, we gave you the possibility to specifically select the best offer you wanna promote, the info about its payout and performance, the banners you can use to promote it in a way that’s compliant with all the rules, and the same advanced settings as on the Smartlink section.

For a better and faster experience, use the filter and narrow your target. Click the top payout, top eCPM or added date to set an order.

If you already know the ID or any keyword of the offer you can just use our search box to find it.

Mobidea Guide10

Once you spot the perfect offer for you, check its details by clicking on the icon.

The request date, invoice and payment status will automatically appear below.

We make e-payments every week days and bank transfers in a maximum of 7 days. We’re faster than any other in town!

We know how important cash flow is for you 😉

5 – Account
