As you know there are affiliate networks that are growing left and right. But how do you find the right one and who can you trust? Well, best thing to do is always test out a network and communicate with a network. I recently had the chance to talk to Dustin from CPARev about his network and get an inside scope of their system.
Dustin was nice enough to let me have a temp account to tour his offers and their interface. Currently they are using Direct Track, I have my opinions about Direct Track. But Dustin states they are working with an in house tracking platform. I think personally every network should have their in house, as it provides more versatility to the network and to publishers.
Now with all these networks what separates CPARev from the rest? There were a couple things that I noticed network side, interface has more of a welcome feel to it. CPARev is using Direct Track but they have managed to alternate the interface pretty well.
Below are 2 screenshots, one being the main dashboard and the tools area.
Here are some things which are listed on their site about their network.
On Time Payments
Affiliates are paid on a NET30 basis, payments (Checks or PayPal) are made to those who reach the specified monthly minimums. Payments are made on time, every time.
We provide the highest commissions in the industry and will compete with the commissions of other CPA networks, given that the offer in question is not exclusive to the other network.
Because We Care
Our affiliate managers are available 7 days a week, with guaranteed phone support on the weekends. Your affiliate manager will call you by your first name and, if opted, will occasionally contact you by phone or e-mail to see how things are going!
We Want Your Business
We accept all LEGAL types of sites and methods for gaining new leads. This includes incentives, PPC marketing, social network applications, e-mail marketing, affiliate networks, and more. We know that as long as you can provide genuine traffic, than you will also provide genuine leads, which equals happy advertisers!
With the fist couple statements being the same with almost every other network. The response time I get from Dustin is very useful especially to a publisher. Though I do not wirk with this specific network, communication is important and Dustin has given that to me.
The last 2 statements Because We Care and We Want Your Business is very powerful because they are willing to work with you as a publisher. Again, communication is important and it is definitely a must. I have had poor communication with several networks in the past.
Communication is important even without throwing in an offer or asking for traffic, and CPARev has done so. I have spoken to Dustin about just random things prior to the arrangement of his CPARev network. Interaction is there and a definite plus for any network and CPARev wants to know about yu as a person and not just as an affiliate/publisher.
As far as offers, it seems they have a lot of incentive offers. I personally do not run incentive offers but to me they look like they have a good variety of offers in each niche that is out and popular. They have the grants and acai as well as some aging offers.
Once you login within the dashboard, you get to see the new and featured offers. This is helpful to see what new offers are out, so you can test to see if an offer will be profitable or not. This gives you the first 'scoop' to access the offer before anyone on any network. You just have to keep on point.
Dustin is a great person to talk to and very highly responsive. The network has fairly good amount of offers, most being incent offers. They also have a nice clean interface using Direct Track, but they are moving to their own in house system soon!
If you have not heard of CPARev, I encourage you to take a look at their network and talk to either Dustin or anyone from his team in a better way to help you earn money online through cpa marketing.
