Utility And Features of Binom
The 2 biggest features of Binom, that help it outperform the rest of the platforms are as follows:
- Integrated (no-redirect) landing pages
- Smart Rotation
Come, let’s have a look at these features comprehensively.
- Integrated Landing Pages
This helps you in uploading your lander to the tracker and utilizes a specific token with respect to your CTA click link. The real difference is that there will be no additional redirect when you link your campaign to the tracking link, as Binom will directly load the landing page. Although both Binom and Voluum have direct pixel tracking, the real contrast is that with the integrated landing pages the landing page itself is placed on the very same server as your tracker, while with pixel tracking you can host your landing pages on other servers or CDN.
- Smart Rotations
Yet another interesting feature of Binom is Smart Rotations. The main idea behind this feature is not to display the lander and offer to the same user repeatedly if he had already seen it. Here, you can spot a back button redirect script, where each time the visitor clicks, he sees a completely different offer. It is a completely automated tracker, with no such coding required.
Even then, you can utilize the standard rotations; every option is displayed while creating a fresh campaign.
- E-commerce and Subscriptions
If you have ever run COD (cash on delivery) offers, then you would be aware of the 3 stages of a conversion process: HOLD, REJECT and LEAD (the E-commerce scheme) that can be accessed in the settings panel. It operates hassle-free, the only difference being it is tracked as a separate conversion. This implies that In Binom it’s called E-commerce scheme and it’s accessible in the Settings panel. It works without problems, the only difference is that in Voluum each conversion is tracked as a separate conversion.
Unlike Voluum, in Binom you will encounter a single event.
In Binom, if a HOLD converts into a LEAD, then the rest of those on HOLD previously gets converted into LEAD in a single event without any added conversion events.
- Checking domains for Google Blocking
Binom now clubs with Google Safe Browsing API, which further enables you to verify how is your domain standing.
- Free SSL Certifications
As mentioned, Binom can allow SSL by default for you to track as a whole. Nevertheless, it can also allow SSL for any domain that you intend to add at a later stage. You can simply do it by clicking on the enable button, placed next to the domain.
Some Advanced Features of Binom
- Custom Columns
In case you require extra calculations, it enables you to add your own columns. They are generally helpful with the Events feature. This feature allows you to enter your personal formulas and make Binom calculate it on your behalf. Excel is not required anymore for additional calculations.
In all Binom offers you 10 variables in events that one can use at its best. With this, you can implement creative ideas such as measuring the percentage of the scroll on the landing page or finding bots visiting the LP.

Moreover, Binom also offers a live demo, where you can run and test the tracker without even installing it on your own servers.
As a fact, a lot of affiliates are scared of working on self-hosted solutions, since they are familiar with broadcasted fast redirect speed in a distributed cloud. But Binom offers a great support system and installation of an optimized server for the tracker which is not complicated at all.
Moreover, if you are still worried about the redirected speeds, you can host your tracker in multiple geo-locations with add on licenses.
