ClickBooth is an established affiliate network that is located in Sarasota, FL and has been in the game for over 5 years now. Today we will take a look at their affiliate admin area, campaigns available, earnings potential and reflect back on the recent controversy around the company and it’s affiliates.
ClickBooth first went live in September 2002 and is a division of Integraclick. Through their affiliate network, ClickBooth is paying out over $16 million a month in commissions to affiliate networks. In addition to be a player in the affiliate network space, ClickBooth makes a great effort to attend and exhibit at most affiliate/internet marketing conferences and were just recently at OMMA Hollywood, SES Conference & Expo New York and the upcoming ad:tech San Francisco show. If you have been an attendee to any of these tradeshows, you will see ClickBooth usually has one of the larger booths. As an affiliate of ClickBooth, you will also have access to their 24/7 support, via email, phone and AIM.
Ease of Use:
When you first login to the ClickBooth system you are offered with a ton of campaign and search options. ClickBooth does a nice job in making it easy for you to search through their TOP Network offers, which are sorted by Email, OnSite Placement, Search, Path and Networks. Below the “Top” offers section, you can search out all campaigns on their network, and view the most recently added campaigns. Their backend is run off the DirectTrack system, but they have done a great job with customizing it’s look, so it has a much better look and feel than many other networks.
On the main login page, you will also find your full contact information for your affiliate manager, along with all the basic tools needed to manage your account, such as “program links”, “tools” and “running reports”. A “Quick Links” menu on the left side gives you easy access to new campaigns, deactivations and other updates made to campaigns.
As an affiliate of ClickBooth, you should be able to find a way to effectively market to your web site traffic or to almost any niche area. With over 600+ campaigns on the network, it should not be hard for you to find an offer related to your content or marketing needs. A quick run through of the 600+ campaigns shows they have some very high payouts on campaigns and will beat or match any offer on any network that you are currently running with. In addition to a selection of quality offer, ClickBooth also offers weekly payouts and bimonthly payments to qualified publishers. Payments can also be sent through check, PayPal, and ACH.
Quality of Ads:
Through ClickBooth you will have access to hundreds of familiar and famous brand names. With respectable name brand campaigns from companies like Gevalia, BlockBuster, Entertainment and VistaPrint, you should have no problem finding an offer than converts with your traffic, or to start your own ppc campaign. ClickBooth campaigns have an overall range of .40 per lead for FreeLotto, all the way up to $280 per lead for Medical Hair Restoration.
While searching through campaigns on ClickBooth, you can also do a search based on offer payout or the network epc (earnings per click). Below is a screenshot of just a few offers running on the ClickBooth network.
If you are familiar with any networks running on the DirectTrack system, then you should have no problem getting used to the stats area for ClickBooth. A screenshot sample below shows a stats report from within ClickBooth. SubID tracking and creative tracking options are also available. You can pull stats reports based on campaign, subids and date.
Here is a sample preview of what ClickBooth stats area looks like.
What’s all the recent talk on ClickBooth?:
Recently ClickBooth has been the discussion of many affiliate marketing forums and blog posts. Management of an affiliate network can be extremely tough, especially when you are dealing with thousands of affiliates. If for any reason ClickBooth is responsible for closing an affiliate account due to violation of terms, ClickBooth itself would be in violation of it’s own terms if they were to bill an advertiser and keep the funds/commissions, which an affiliate would also lose. I was assured by ClickBooth that this would never happen, as it would be a breach in contract and an illegal action as well. As much slack or positive press affiliate networks may receive for their performance, reputation is everything. ClickBooth does not only work with affiliates, they are also working with many other affiliate networks and brokers such as NeverBlueAds. ClickBooth is dedicated to taking all necessary actions to defend their name and practices. I recommend you take a further look into all situations before coming to an assumption. I was told by ClickBooth, that they will gladly talk with any affiliates or advertisers on the matter, or interested in working with their network.
Why Do I Like this Network:
Before writing this review, I talked briefly with ClickBooth over the phone. I wanted to make sure everything with the network was going well and that I had a good grip on their business plans and well being. I was assured that the company continues to pay out millions to affiliates each month and they are making new strides every day to improve the company and performance for their affiliates. With over 600 campaigns on the network and being in business for over 5 years, I wouldn’t see why anyone couldn’t make money with this network. Another big plus of working with ClickBooth, is their dedication to working with you on a personal basis to make sure you are receiving the highest payouts through their network. To clear up any justification of this review, I will be promoting a few campaigns from ClickBooth through ppc campaigns and onsite placement on a few of my own sites. I will make a follow up post to this review once payment is received.
After final review, I rate ClickBooth with 4 out of 5 “Zac Stamps of Approval“. This review was done as a precursor to running my own campaigns with ClickBooth. Once I have a few successful campaigns running through the company and an established personal communication with the company and my affiliate manager, I will have a better idea on their performance and earnings potential. Based on talking with the company and doing a walk through review of their network, I recommend you join their network and let me know your thoughts on the company, or if you have previous experience with them. You can also use their web site contact form to contact them directly with any questions you may have.
UPDATE: If you are or were an active affiliate with ClickBooth, I highly recommend that you post a comment based on your experience with the company. While I am new with the company, I would like as much feedback from past and current affiliates as well. The more responses, the better we can get an idea on this companies’ performance. Thank you.
