Tatto Media Review – A Top Ad Network Now In Affiliate Marketing

June 12, 2009 - Written by Gyutae Park  

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. 😉

tatto media logoThe latest affiliate network to show up on my radar is Tatto Media, a quickly-growing ad network that claims to be the “leading behavioral advertising network focused on utilizing technology to produce immediate results.” The company was founded back in 2005 (now ranked in the top 40 by comScore of the top ad networks by reach), but has just recently launched an affiliate program to get in on the game. So what does Tatto Media have to offer in a crowded industry? There are 5 distinguishing features that set Tatto apart.

  • Advanced reporting
  • Self serve system
  • Exclusive offers
  • Weekly payments
  • Superb support

Advanced Reporting – It’s fast and it’s live

Unlike some of the other networks that use the generic DirectTrack system for their offers, Tatto Media has its own proprietary tracking technology – which shows that they are serious about this business. The backend is extremely simple and easy to use and offers live performance statistics of your campaigns. This is huge considering that affiliate marketing can run very fast and every minute counts. Custom reports and charts can easily be pulled and you can even use the API to integrate with third party affiliate tracking services like Tracking202.

Self Serve System – Out of my way, please

Most of the other affiliate networks require that you talk with an affiliate manager in order to get your tracking pixels and cookies on the offer conversion page (e.g. needed to track conversions and sales in PPC campaigns). But not Tatto. Everything is available in the backend and you can instantly set up your own conversion tracking when you want it. The only thing not available at your fingertips is banner ad creative (only available through your affiliate manager), but apparently that will be added to the system next week.

Exclusive Offers

The offers listed on Tatto Media are 100% direct and span the following categories: dating, education, email submit, entertainment, finance, health, insurance, and mobile. There aren’t a huge number of offers available, but all of them are high quality with relatively large payouts. I think they took the approach of quality over quantity here. Overall, not a bad selection. Some of the top payout offers are shown below.

Weekly Payment – Get your money fast

Another benefit of using Tatto Media is that they offer weekly payments through check, Paypal, or wire. I think that’s the fastest payout schedule I’ve seen in the industry. You can never get that money fast enough, eh?

Superb Support

Finally, I have to compliment Tatto for their exceptional support. I spoke with the director of affiliate relations, Michael Catalado, and he was very helpful in helping me understand the system and getting me whatever I needed. Super affiliate Zac Johnson has also had a good experience with Tatto support.

Final Verdict

Tatto Media is a successful ad network that is leveraging it’s technology and experience to get started in the affiliate marketing space. From what I’ve seen so far, the system is easy to use and support is great – 2 of the top things that every affiliate should be looking for.

There are a ton of affiliate networks popping up left and right, but Tatto is one you should add to your list and at least give a try. Sign up as an affiliate for Tatto Media now.

Yeah they’ve been around for a while as an ad network and are now just getting into the affiliate marketing game. Try it out and let us know what you think.


Are they available all around the globe. As I am from India and I would like to know whether I am eligible for their network or not ?

Or I will give a visit to their website to get more details.

Recently I was so excited to try affiliate game because I have no experience in making money with affiliate program, I only made money from Adsense, selling banner ads and other small advertisements. Anyway, I’m going to look more into it and give it a try. 😀
