The Good

  • Website
  • Publisher Features and Reports
  • Links

Website

While a website is not the end-all, be-all of a company, it does make a first impression. And for CJ Affiliate, the company website makes a fantastic first impression online. The website is incredibly informative, with detailed information about company features, contact information, the company's approach, and more. It's very organized and easy to navigate.

Publisher Features and Reports

The company has many options for making the most of your links, including deep linking, an affiliate links search, and get code options

What's more, it offers real-time transaction monitoring, which is updated every one to two hours. That means you can view the progress and performance of your links as often as you want. Specific to CJ Affiliate is also the ViewThrough feature, which allows advertisers to see how consumers are interacting with links even if consumers don't actually click on them.

Links

CJ Affiliate offers a variety of links to make you money, including the following:

  • Banner ads
  • Flash links
  • Text links
  • Content links
  • Product links
  • Advanced (such as pop-ups) links

There's also an option to schedule your links so they become most profitable.

The Bad

  • Pay per Performance
  • Check or Direct Deposit Payment

Pay per Performance

Whenever you make money off of your links through CJ Affiliate, you'll be paid a commission for every sale that your links lead to. In other words, the company pays per performance and not per lead or per click. That alone might deter you from partnering with this company, despite many other attractions.

Check or Direct Deposit Payments

In addition, the company pays its clients by check or direct deposit. While this isn't a grievous negative, there are many other ways to pay clients, such as through PayPal or other online mediums. Admittedly, there's not much to criticize about CJ Affiliate, but of course, as a publisher or an advertiser, you'll need to see if its features meet your specific goals.

The Bottom Line

Overall, this company has an excellent reputation and plenty of experience in its industry. The company provides a variety of tools for clients to be well informed. On its website, you'll find an excellent Support Center tab. Aside from answers to FAQs, the site offers tutorials for publishers-in-training and explanations about the basics of affiliate marketing. All of this, speaks well of the company's relationship with its clients. CJ Affiliate by Conversant not only wants you to make a profit; it wants you to feel educated about and in control of your approach to affiliate marketing. The company is easily a recommended partner.

If you do not make enough sales, they will take the little money you made sitting in your account and then spank you to make more money ....You must start over from $0.00

The system and service provided is good. The slow and crazy bureaucracy is just what you expect from an American company. Support is the slowest ever of any affiliate network I've experienced. It can take months for an issue to be dealt with.
