    There are several affiliate networks that I like to do business with and use for my internet marketing efforts. There is Commission Junction (CJ Affiliate), Share-a-Sale, Clickbank and some others. Each one has it's pluses and minuses.

    My favorite one to work with is Commission Junction. I like their system, variety of advertisers and many other things.

    I hear different answer from different people whenever I ask them what their favorite affiliate network is so I am curious what some of our members favorite affiliate network is.

    Which affiliate network do you like the best?

    I am currently working with CJ and Shareasale. Both of them are very good affiliate networks. They paid me in time and their support is awesome. Both of them have variety of advertisers in different niches. However In detailed reporting I prefer Shareasale over CJ. Shareasale reports are very detailed and precise, While CJ's report is quite complicated and not so much worthy.

    I used to really like commission junction back when it was that. Now that I am back into things I like Clickbank the best. The products are easier to sell and commissions are better.

    I would have to say that Shareasale is my favorite affiliate network at the moment. It used to be commission junction but I have had a few issues with them and the main one being the quality (or lack of) of their support.

    Taking 3-7+ days to reply to support tickets and only after they are nudged is just not acceptable. I think that a top-quality affiliate network should have top-quality support. That would help their publishers and advertisers stay happy and willing to work with them.

    I like share a sale better for myself. It is easier for me to find thing in the control panel and their website always loads fast for me. CJ affiliate is harder to find things and their website is loading real slow all the time.

    I have had that same problem with their control panel and the slow loading times ever since they revamped it c couple years ago.

    You would think that they would try to make it more efficient but that's not the way that they look at it I guess.

    I used to like CJ Affiliate the best but so far this year my earning from them are way down compared to last years monthly earnings.

    Right now I have been doing a lot better with Shareasale so I guess that's my new favorite. :p

    Linkshare was my favorite affiliate network when I was doing affiliate marketing years ago but they were bought so I do not know if they are as good as they used to be.

    Commission Junction was another I liked but I do not know if they are still good also because I see they changed their name to CJ Affiliate so I don't know if that means they were bought and changed the name or if they did it for some other reason.

    It seems like many of the affiliate network websites that I used some years ago are now owned by someone else or changed quite a lot.

    There are many to list but there are also some private networks that I am affiliated with. I would say the guys at convert2media know how to take good care of their affiliates. I have been doing some big numbers with them since like 5 years now. The offers are also direct and there is no brokering involved. The epc's for their best converting offers are the best one can expect.

    Thanks for sharing the lead. :Thumb:

    I like CJ Affiliate because they are the ones that had most of the companies that had products that I wanted to have on my blog. It seems like every time I found something that I wanted to become an affiliate of that company was using CJ Affiliate.

    I really don't care who I go through but I just have certain things that I want to market.

    I have always like which one was making me the most money and that was Linkshare when I was marketing before. Now I guess they were sold or something so I don't know if they will still be my favorite but if they do me right money wise then all is good. :Clap 1:

    Linkshare is now Rakuten. They are still a good affiliate network so you never know, they might be making you the most money again and still be your favorite. :Thumb:

    I saw that. I didn't know that Rakuten had an affiliate program because I don't remember it being around when I was marketing before. I know in my area there are a lot of people that buy stuff from them online.

    I didn't start dealing with Rakuten until after they bought or merged with linkshare so I don't know anything about their affiliate program before that.

    They are ok now but I don't like the fact that each site you own must be approved separately by each advertiser, even if you are already approved by the advertiser. Kind of a pain.

    How often does commission junction pay affiliates?

    What kind of epc are you averaging with the offer you are currently running?

    I can't remember if linkshare was like that before they got bought or not. I have forgotten so much I can't believe it sometimes.

    Things are changing so fast these days that sometimes things that I know, or thought I knew, have changed so it happens to all of us.

    They say clickbank is the best affiliate network. However, I don't have any experience with clickbank. Opening a clickbank from my location is not possible as clickbank is not available in my home country. I am using Amazob, Commission Junction and Linkshare.Based on my experience, I can say Amazon is great. Since Amazon is biggest online store, more people buy Amazon products than from any where else. Thus, it is easy to sell Amazon affiliate products.
