If you understand me both in actual life or on the “interwebz”, you'd know that I have a weak spot for good software program, one thing that has a pleasant consumer interface, does what it advertises, works quick and is straightforward to get your arms on with out leaping by way of monumental hoops(Yeah I’m taking a look at you Oracle!).
Therefore I like selling good software program provides, be it an search engine marketing software or one thing that simply cleans your registry.
I love all of that stuff, so I was on the lookout for an affiliate community that had numerous software program presents, in order the noob I am I turned to ClickBank(affiliate hyperlink), and began to search for presents on some good software program, to my dismay nevertheless, I discovered low high quality shovel-ware that no one of their proper thoughts would ever attempt to buy.
Frustrated with ClickBank I turned to Commission Junction, the place I discovered a number of packages that was kind of what I was in search of however not fairly, I additionally discovered that a LOT of their packages want guide evaluate to get into a number of the publishers packages, this isn't one thing I needed to waste my time on, so I appeared round at a few of my favourite software program writer’s web sites specifically IOBit, Link-Assistant and Zemana to see if that they had their very own in-home affiliate packages for his or her software program.
And I observed that they have been utilizing BlueSnap(Plimus), and Avangate, they usually provided a superb fee, I’m going to inform you the professional’s and cons of those to networks.
- They have A LOT of gives obtainable, I checked and there's presently 26013 merchandise from 1502 distributors, and new ones is added daily!
- The commissions you get on a few of the presents are sometimes up within the forty-70% vary
- You can create customized reductions, I lately did a assessment on IOBit Advanced System Care over on my software program assessment site(WiP) and I created a customized 50% low cost code with the site identify because the coupon code, though this might be subtracted off of your affiliate fee it might assist you to improve your affiliate gross sales.
- You can customise the place your affiliate hyperlink will level to, for instance you would have a “purchase now” button in your site that leads the consumer on to the buying cart to buy a bit of software program immediately, or you possibly can level the hyperlink to the product web page(what I do) to provide the consumer extra info.
- The consumer interface could be very consumer-pleasant and you'll find the knowledge you want fairly simply.
- Most of the distributors have enabled “automated approval” of partnership requests, which means you will discover a product, request partnership, write your evaluation and publish it within the matter of an hour or so relying in your writing velocity, in distinction to CJ which may take you as much as every week to get accredited.
- The product filtering might be higher, there isn't a solution to cover all merchandise from a vendor you aren't focused on, for instance, there was a vendor named wondersoft(or one thing like that) which had tons of those video conversion merchandise which I was not fascinated by in any respect, and needed to click on via 10~pages to get previous these merchandise.
I don’t actually have numerous cons to offer to Avangate, it have handled me properly, and I discover their service straightforward, quick and really highly effective, I completely advocate them in case you are planning on selling software program or providing software program coupon codes.
- Their product search record provides you a pleasant overview of the product title, common earnings per sale, the fee price, what number of lively associates there are selling the product, a brief description and a market rating
- Their “Product Links” web page provides you an ideal overview of the affiliate hyperlinks of the merchandise you're at present selling, and provides you the power to export the record of “BuyNow”, “Trial Download” and “Product Information” Links to Excel or a CSV file, this is a wonderful function to have!
- The dashboard provides you a pleasant overview of the gross sales you have got generated, and when the final cost was despatched, in addition to an inventory of the merchandise you're selling with a pleasant record of gross sales and income.
- Their dashboard and product search might be fairly sluggish at occasions, looking is especially sluggish typically.
- They don’t have as many merchandise to advertise as Avangate, presently there's round 1300 merchandise.
- This may be nitpicking on my half, however their strict password coverage prohibits you from utilizing a earlier password going all they means again to 10 final passwords used… I imply critically.. Punish me extra will ya?
If you're in search of methods to monetize your software program assessment site, coupon site or no matter you're doing associated to software program I would recommend testing each of them, they're each free to hitch, and also you don’t need to do something fancy to get accepted into the packages, a lot of the distributors/publishers have automated approval enabled so you possibly can shortly undergo their product database and discover those you need to promote, and get your hyperlinks and coupons virtually immediately.
