When it comes to affiliate marketing and generating leads online, there is no time for sleep. The industry is always changing and there is always going to be a new ad network, traffic source or technology right around the corner. For affiliate networks and advertising platforms, this is one of the biggest areas of when it comes to staying relevant — after all, how long can you continually say “we have the best offers and the highest payouts” and continue to find success and new site partners?
TerraLeads is a new player in the affiliate marketing space, and instead of calling themselves a ‘network’, they would much rather act as a ‘hub’. With their completely innovative and creative look at the industry, they are focusing their efforts on three major components of the industry — the merchant, the network and the publisher.
Let’s take a look at TerraLeads and see how they are attempting to change the way affiliate revenue and leads are generated online.
TerraLeads – Making Way for Change
To stay relevant in the the world of technology, business and marketing, you always need to be ahead of the coming trends, while also adapting your business model in the process. It doesn’t matter if you are selling individual products, advertising, traffic or even a service — if you stay stagnant and don’t adapt with the changes around you, your business will fail. This is also true for affiliates, site owners, advertisers and networks they help connect them all together.
TerraLeads is focused on being that type of solution and provide for all components of online marketing. Having just launched their hub in January 2017, they are already seeing a great deal of success, while working with all of their site partners to continually improve what they already have in place.
As mentioned, TerraLeads has built a platform that is focused on helps all areas of affiliate marketing and lead generation, with focuses on the following:
- For merchants, TerraLeads offers the production of their own products, while making sure they are all clinically approved and meet all European standards.
- As a network, TerraLeads can connect advertisers, marketers and site owners together to make sure all parties are involved in the transaction process.
- Publishers can benefit from the many offers and features TerraLeads has to offer through their arbitrage tram and creating original ad creative and copy.
With all of these different components and moving parts in place, you can see why TerraLeads is more of a ‘hub’, then a traditional ‘network’.
At the same time, it’s also important to note that they are currently focusing their efforts on the European market, which has massive potential for anyone not currently taking advantage of it. When looking through the list of offers and products within TerraLeads, you will find the majority of offers are targeted towards Europe, which a few other countries like Italy, Spain, Hungary, Romania, Greece, Czech Republic and Bulgaria sprinkled into the list. Their focus is on Europe right now, but there will be an aggressive move towards USA, Latin America, and Asia throughout 2018.
Inside the TerraLeads Dashboard Area
The best way to experience what TerraLeads is, and has to offer, is to simply create a free account on their site at https://terraleads.com. Once live with an account, you will then be able to login to the dashboard area, as seen below. Right when you log in, you are offered a quick wizard path to help you best choose the direction you’d like to go (choosing a new offer, creating streams or generating an API file for your site).
As with all great dashboard areas, the left side will consist of a detailed navigation menu. From here, site partners and advertisers will be able to select from various areas and reports to their account, including accessing leads, streams, offers, statistics, purchases, API, profile, payments, and so on.
Even with TerraLeads liking to be called a hub, it’s still important to remember they are focused on affiliate marketing — and this is going to be one of the major components to the site, as we all need a constant supply of new leads to take place for business to remain profitable. We can now take a look at how this all comes together within the members area.
Affiliate Marketing within TerraLeads
At the time of this review, TerraLeads is still in their growth phase, so you won’t find a ton of affiliate offers to choose from — just yet. However, as mentioned, with all of their offers being custom and cleared from the European market, they do offer a valued service and selection of offers you typically won’t find elsewhere. You can see a screenshot of a few of the offers available below. The majority of offers are in the $20-$25 range, and new offers will continually be added as they get approved and are ready for mass market.
When looking for an offer on TerraLeads, you will find that they are mainly in the diet, beauty, health and adult niche markets — all of which are also physical products. Health and beauty products like creams, powders, and weight loss solutions will always have a market and never-ending supply of new customers, so it’s a great industry to be in.
Each product listing comes with a featured image, a listing of GEO-locations it’s currently available to be marketed in, the approval rate, cost, payments, and T-coins which can be earned on each transaction (more on that later).
To see more information on an offer, all you need to do is click on the expand button. This will show the different payouts, conversion rates, payments and T-coins by location as well. In the screenshot above, you can see how the Germitox offer has a payout ranging from $15-$19 depending on which country you decide to promote it to. As the commission rate varies, it’s likely the cost to the end consumer will as well.
Once you find an offer you’d like to promote, it’s then time to generate an API or create a stream from within your account. A stream is in place to allow for the promotion of offers through landing pages and pre-landing pages currently available on the TerraLeads hub.
One of the most important things to look for when choosing an offer to promote is making sure there are quality landing pages to choose from. When looking at an individual offer, you can see all of the landing pages and pre-landing pages within one area. Simply click on any of the URLs and they will open up in a new window for easy viewing. The ad copies are also set up with the appropriate language for the selected country of promotion as well.
Advanced tracking, URL postbacks and redirect URLs are also available from within this area as well. Affiliates can set up sub parameters to better control and track their campaigns, while also having split-testing capabilities and easy Facebook Pixel ID tracking.
TerraLeads T-Coins Rewards Program
A common theme among many affiliate networks and platforms is the ability to earn a bonus or rewards based on your earnings. In the case of TerraLeads, this is something they have put a lot of time and effort in. With each offer you promote on the hub, not only will you be earning a commission, you will also earn some T-coins in the process — which can then be claimed for some crazy items like the ones below.
If you are going to be earning money with an affiliate platform, a little incentivization to earn a bit more and get a reward is always nice. When visiting the TerraLeads store, you can see all of the items that are available for purchase when using T-Coins. In the screenshot above you can see a MacBook Pro currently has a rewards point price tag of 30,400 — which means you would need to generate around 10k-30k conversions in order to get your hands on one for free.
Not a bad incentive and something that can definitely add up over time. TerraLeads also knows that not every site partner is going to generate thousands of dollars in commissions, so there are smaller prizes and reward levels to choose from as well — such as a USB power bank for 300 T-coins or a camera drone for 3,000 T-coins.
