The competition for affiliate networks is now bigger than ever. This doesn’t seem to be a problem for Affiliate.com (formerly CPA Empire, now part of Media Breakaway), as they have been in the game since 2001. Media Breakaway is actually a lot more than just an affiliate network, they literally have their hands in everything, whether it be domain sales, site design, managing data and even their own division for mobile media. Let’s take a look at what Affiliate.com is all about and how they are competing as one of the top affiliate networks, in such a saturated industry.
Key Points of Affiliate.com
Affiliate.com is run on the DirectTrack Network platform. Since so many of us are already familiar with the look and feel, I won’t go into details of how to use the system to check stats and pull creatives. Instead I’ll focus on a few key points, offers available and what else Affiliate.com has to offer.
As of right now, there are just under 300 offers available on the network. The offers range from zip/email submits, cell phone submits, dating, surveys and more. If you are currently making money with another network, and that same offer is on Affiliate.com, they will squeeze out any margins they have to pay top dollar to gain your business. Weekly payments are also available for affiliates earning over $1,000 a week.
Ringtones.net – Amazing Name, Amazing Offer
The recent name change to Affiliate.com wasn’t the only amazing domain name that Media Breakaway acquired. The domain name Ringtones.net was added to their arsenal and have become one of the top performing offers on the network. Not only is a top performer, but it is actually their offer, and they have been paying a very generous $20 CPA for every new lead generated.
Having Fun with Network & Marketing Videos
While more networks are catching on with video trend, it’s always important to try and stand out from the crowd. Affiliate.com takes a different approach with their videos, and have created a few videos called “2 Minutes with JK”, who is one of the affiliate managers at Affiliate.com. You can view the two videos on JK’s YouTube page. Along with JK’s fun marketing videos, Affiliate.com also threw together a site called AffiliateCubes to feature videos of each of their staff and affiliate managers. With only two episodes of JK available, and only one featured on AffiliateCubes, I’m not sure if this is a long term project or what, but it’s still putting their company out there to be more personable.
Affiliate.com Breakaway Conference
When you have a large enough company and affiliate network to host your own networking conference, you know you are doing things right. Once a year Media Breakaway holds their own conference where they share information and invite some of their top affiliates to join in on the fun. If you are currently an active affiliate with Affiliate.com, they are giving away some nice package deals, depending on the amount of commissions you earn during April and May. The requirements are pretty low, so qualifying for a reward shouldn’t be tough for a seasoned affiliate. This year will be the 4th Affiliate Breakaway conference, and will be held during August 27th and 28th, 2009 in Denver, CO.
As mentioned earlier, Affiliate.com has been in the affiliate marketing games for many years now and knows what it takes to make money. If you aren’t already an affiliate, join now and talk to their team and see what can be done to bring your earnings to the next level.
