New affiliate networks seem to pop up everyday and it can be quite a chore determining which ones are actually worthwhile. Today I’d like to review T3leads, a pay-per-lead affiliate program that sells generated leads through a unique auction system that supposedly allows affiliates to maximize profits. Basically how it works is publishers have their visitors fill out an application (considered a lead) but the payout is not predefined because advertisers in the niche bid and essentially compete for the leads. Leads could be valued anywhere between $2 and $150.

Back in June, I posted a Tatto Media review – about a newer affiliate marketing network branched off of one of the biggest ad networks online. If you haven’t read the review and you’re looking for additional affiliate networks to add to your arsenal, I suggest you check it out. Tatto has good offers and payouts and hosts a fast and easy-to-use interface that makes running your campaigns easier.
Tatto Media is working hard to improve its network and quickly gain more advertisers and publishers. In this sponsored followup review, I’ll outline some of the improvements that they’ve made in the past couple of months (since my review).

A couple weeks ago, I reviewed Tatto Media, a quickly growing affiliate marketing network with a simple and easy-to-use interface. If you like Tatto’s platform and always wanted to create your own affiliate network, then I have great news for you.
HasOffers, a sister company of Tatto Media, is an affiliate network solution that gives you access to the same exact platform used by Tatto. Now you can white label the technology, customize and brand it however you want, and get all of the unique features of the system.

There are a ton of affiliate networks out there offering different benefits and payouts. In fact, I review a lot of them here on Winning the Web – most recently the up and coming Tatto Media. But with so many networks and offers available, how do you effectively keep track of them all? Isn’t it better to just stick with one?
No, not really. Ideally, you want to try out different networks so that you can maximize payouts and get a better sense of what works for your campaigns. The best way to accomplish this is to use a free tool like Offer Vault to compare thousands of offers and payouts from the top affiliate and CPA networks. Let’s go in depth into what Offer Vault offers…

Affiliate marketing is hot. How do I know? Because there is a TON of competition amongst affiliate networks – which are all trying to gain attention by rolling out new features and providing exceptional support. To them, the end goal is to lure in top advertisers and affiliates so that they can gain market share and make more money – even if it means giving away free pizza deliveries.

…is through my stomach. Seriously. I normally don’t blog about this sort of stuff, but I simply can’t let this one go by unnoticed. The folks over at Market Leverage have completely outdone themselves. Let me explain…
I was talking to Dina, the marketing manager at Market Leverage, through the comments section on one of my posts (she comments frequently here). The article was about injecting personality in business blogs and Dina commented joking that no one wants to know what my favorite pizza topping is. I replied to her, asking “why not? My favorite topping is mushroom!”. Lo and behold, a few hours later, a delivery guy from Giordano’s appeared at my front door with a boatload of food. Amazing!

Looking to compete against other affiliate marketers online? Well, you probably have enough competition as it is, but now you can actually track results on a leaderboard and get rewarded handsomely for being the cream of the crop. My Internet marketing friend Tyler Cruz recently launched a new site called PublisherChallenge.com where affiliates can compete with one another and win some sweet prizes from the top networks.
You all know my opinion on affiliate marketing contests. They’re great because everyone involved stands to gain. The affiliate network gets more qualified publishers to run their offers, affiliates are motivated and can win high-ticket prizes along with commissions, the contest holder earns referral fees, and the affiliate marketing community learns more about the tricks of the trade.

Affiliate marketing competitions seem to be all the rage these days and why not? Everyone involved wins out in some way. Affiliate networks gain a lot of exposure and new affiliates, merchants get their offers promoted by the best in the business, and affiliates sharpen their skills to compete, learn new tactics, and win some awesome prizes on top of commissions.
The latest network to come out with a noteworthy contest is Direct Agents in partnership with Bidz, the largest interactive jewelry auction site.

Affiliate marketing networks are having great success promoting themselves and attracting new affiliates by running performance-based contests. The networks team up with high-profile bloggers in the industry and leverage their readerships and reputations to offer some sweet incentives and prizes to new affiliates. For example, Tyler Cruz has already run 6 affiliate marketing challenges with Market Leverage and there are even more to come.
This method of promotion is highly effective because everyone involved stands to gain from it. The affiliate network gets exposure from popular bloggers and gains new affiliates to promote their offers, bloggers make easy referral commissions (Tyler made $2,500 from ML referrals last month), and contest participants win prizes in addition to their affiliate revenue. It’s a great idea that I think we’ll see used more frequently in 2009.

So what does it take to make $2.4 million in one year doing PPC affiliate marketing? Is it even possible? Amit Mehta, a full-time affiliate marketer and blogger over at Super Affiliate Mindset is living proof that it is. In just a couple of years, Amit went from a Physics grad student highly in debt, to a super affiliate making millions promoting products he doesn’t even own.
