    green line shows that advertiser's earnings, so that would give you an idea if the advertiser converts well

    I don't know if I'd call it responsible. Perhaps "watered-down" would be a better term and they are finally realizing it. This could be for any industry. CJ has thousands of advertisers and with that many companies competing for solid vertical publishers, it can be hard to stay aggressive.

    I'd consider them responsible when they start firing their clients.

    [UPDATE: Sorry, didn't realize how old this thread was. I'll keep a better eye out for post dates...]

    rodies, I'm glad you bumped this thread. I just signed up w/ CJ for one particular affiliate that works very well for my website. I have yet to add the products to the site. I'm working on that currently. I'm interested to see how this pans out.

    Sorry for the intrusion here since you are all clearly affiliates and I am a merchant.

    I have an online store that sells ink cartridges and cell accessories and need to generate alot more traffic by recruiting affiliates. I joined shareasale almost a year ago and have acquired 85 affiliates who's output has been very low. I am now considering moving to a different affiliate system in hopes that I will get much better results. I originally chose shareasale because it cost a lot less to become a merchant. I am now considering someone else because we can afford to pay more, I am considering linkshare or commission junction.

    My questions to you, affiliates are:

    1. Of all the ink cartridge and cell phone stores out there, what is your criteria for choosing which one to be an affiliate with?

    2. Because I don't have a big brand name, would a permanent offer like free shipping on all orders, be attractive enough? If not what would attract you to a no name like us.

    3. Does anyone have numbers on which affiliate system has the most affiliates?

    We would appreciate any help as we try to build a small business. Thanks.

    I would go with CJ rather than LinkShare... it's a much better affiliate platform all around. In fact, I generally shy away from anything outside of CJ these days (it's nice to have a central system, one check, etc. for everything).

    As far as how to get affiliates to join... it all comes down to how much money they could potentially make vs. how much effort is required. Some stuff pays $200+ per transaction for commission, but typically they require lots of effort. I would check out what types of incentives (for paying affiliates) your competitors offer, and see if you can at least match them.

    My income break down is as follows:
    99% : Day job (8-5; 40hrs a week; yes some people still have those :rolleyes: )
    0.5% : Money I get in my birthday card or stocking
    0.25% : money I find laying on the ground; or in a shirt pocket I haven't worn in over 3 months
    0.15% : money that mysteriously falls from heaven or is delivered by an Angel (with actual wings etc)
    0.1% : Income generated online through Adsence and Commission Junction combined

    Slightly less impressive than the rest of you guys, but I'm working on it :D

    AzAkers,

    Your "Impressive online marketing progress" totally cracked me up! Almost spewed coffee all over my monitor! Thanks for the belly laugh.
    At least, it sounds like you still have a great attitude. Keep on trying!

    Me too ...

    Monthly Income
    66% = day job 35hrs a week
    25% = CJ (3 programs, but 90% is one program)
    06% = side job (network/computer guy for small business)
    03% = AdSense

    Of course I'm working on getting more from affiliates, AdSense and side job, but this damn day job gets in the way. :)

    Just thought I'd share.

    I must be doing something wrong. After five months, I only get 8 clicks per month for 4000 impressions and not a single lead.

    Set it as your home page. It is the best search available.

    Use Commission Junction as much and however you want...

    I have not earned $0.01 from CJ.

    My site is newish and on a deeply yawn-inspiring topic, but on my very modest 37000 impressions, I showed only 127 clicks, and not a single sale / revenue of any kind; despite effort into trying to match relevant ad programs to my site.

    CJ was a complete fiasco so far as I am concerned, and I have removed almost all CJ ads as literally a waste of space.

    I would like to make CJ work, or a better Affiliate program work, and am willing to give it another shot; but only if they contribute something relevant to the site or to me.

    Any tips from seasoned CJ campaigners would be welcomed.

    How much did you have to pay CJ and is there a monthly fee?

    I'd ask CJ... The generally pay out monthly around the 20th - 25th, assuming things are actually working. If you are on DP, (not digital point) ie., direct deposit, you will generally see it on or about the 20th, 21st, ... 25th of the month. Assuming that the minimum payout was for the entire previous month.
