    Hello all,

    I recently got this little job with a local company that wants me to bring in potential buyers to their site through social media, articles, etc. I am confident I can build up this traffic with time. However, my boss says he expects me to find some way to track the leads I specifically bring in for him so I can earn a commission (he isn't too familiar with the technical aspects of this). This is the first time I'm doing something like this and I don't know of any software or wordpress plugins that could work. Can anyone recommend any or other solutions? Thanks in advance.

    Well what type of leads? If it's call, you can use call fire. You buy a number and have it call forward to their number

    coupon code would probably be best, or maybe give them a business card with your name and info on it. That way they say "I spoke with (Your Name) and got some information"

    What is he paying you commission on or what did you agree to that is key.

    If its calls then you can use tracking numbers. If it visitors then you can use google analytics.

    Or if you are only getting paid on submitted leads then you can set up conversion goal for when they fill out a from or something like that.
