Commision junction

Commision junctionCommision junction or also known as CJ is one of the largest and oldest affiliate networks of today still in business. Their advertisers - the merchants that sell products or services online - are relatively bigger and better-developed companies. This review can help you weigh up the pros and the cons about Commision junction.

They are the online advertising company which are owned by ValueClick and is also operating as an affiliate marketing industry. In North America, Commision junction is the largest affiliate network and they run worldwide. They use 3rd party affiliate marketing software, and 62% is provided by CJ.

If you are interested in starting a business in affiliate marketing, Commision junction is the place to start. Sign up as a publisher (which is actually free and easy to do). There are a wide selection of offers in their site. Hundreds of merchants and they provide various types of offers. Plus Pay-Per-Sale, Pay-Per-Lead and Pay-Per-Call offers. They are well established merchants with 500 companies connected to them.

They can provide you with statistics on how individual merchants are doing with Commision junction. Anyone can use this as their advance forecast of which merchants to promote for their affiliate. There are many affiliate banners from every merchant and other marketing material which is hosted by CJ. You'll also notice that each banner displays the same. Each product link will take you to the respective products, although some merchants are not true on this. The direct link to the product is only effective for making affiliate sales and statistics performance.
Here are 7 steps to success:
  1. Step 1

  5. Step 5

    : To get the link for the advertiser that approved you, click on the get links tab from the homepage of commission junction. Then click on the by relationship tab, you will see a list of all the advertiser programs that have approved you. Then you will click on the view links under the advertiser you want to get a link for (make sure you choose an advertiser that says you are active). If you choose to post a link from an advertiser that is not active (or has not approved you yet) to your website or blog, you will not collect a commission on the sales or leads.
  6. Step 6

    : Next step will be choosing a link or banner.
  7. Step 7

    : Once you paste it to your blog or website, click publish and the link should appear there. That's it you're done, now your site is monetized by Commision junction.
When it comes to Commision junction payment system, the commissions are paid by the website and not those merchants connected to them, which means that your paychecks are known and secured. As with all programs there are some disadvantages, like the advertiser application process, where you must apply to each merchant and agree to their terms of service.

There is an issue on temporary advertiser deactivation this can happen when the billing process between CJ and the merchants have problems. Once your account is deactivated, you will not get any commission until it is lifted. And because you need to agree on each merchant's terms, there is lack of standardization which means that the commission comes differently from each merchant. You also need to know the latest terms, which could be confusing. Their report features are outdated, and they don't offer paypal options to received payments.

I have read many times plenty of forums that non-USA Commision junction affiliates having problem in getting approved by advertisers to promote their products/programs. Here are a few tricks to get higher approval rate for all of you:
  1. Add as many other niches BLOGS (not sites) in your CJ Account. (Auto Approvals)
  2. When you first sign up with CJ, add in your marketing method as PPC. I am not aware if you can change it now but give it a try. (Auto and Manual Approvals)
  3. Promote a few products that you got approved and make at least 2-3 payouts ($300 - $400). By time you'll be longer in CJ and a trusted affiliate. Advertisers see this as well before approving you. (Manual approvals)
