Adcombo CPA Network Review

Hey guys today I wanted to write about a network I came across a few days ago, Its called “Adcombo“. Normally I don’t write about networks but after working with their team and learning how serious they were about their network I decided to check it out by signing up..

Adcombo cpa network

Adcombo homepage

I must say I really liked their homepage and it’s very unusual for a network in the CPA Industry  to have good looking websites, ( have a look at my blog) but Adcombo has really made a very positive change in this industry and their homepage really looks awesome and gives a great first impression.

What Adcombo has to offer!

Quick and Easy Account Approval

This is  a big headache, especially for newbies these days, I have noticed that the waiting time for the account approval process with majority of  CPA networks is increasing more and more.  CPA Networks are understaffed and have no staff to manage everything properly or their affiliate managers are too busy with managing their existing affiliates( A few very popular networks are best examples).  This results in new affiliates waiting for weeks to get their accounts approved, With Adcombo that account approval time is decreased down to 24 hours, which is great for those affiliates who are tired of waiting for weeks to get approved on CPA Networks. As long as you are sending legit traffic and you know the basics of affiliate marketing you shouldn’t have any problem with the approval process at all .

Easy Payment Terms

Once again unlike many other networks Adcombo provides the best possible payment terms for affiliates. Their minimum payment threshold is $50 which is really helpful especially when you are just starting out! Aside from their minimum payment threshold, they also offer a weekly payment option as well, and their payment options include; Paypal, Payoneer, WebMoney and Wire transfer. These are the most flexible payment terms in whole industry and thats what I really love about Adcombo .. Because money is important right?

Variety of Offers and Geos

With growing competition in Western countries, It’s sometimes really hard to find something which can make you a big profit margin, and so you have to get out of the western market and look around for offers from the countries where there is less competition. In main stream CPA Networks its really hard to find solid offers from different non competitive geo,  I am sure my readers who have been promoting mobile will understand what i am talking about… For example lets talk about India , Pakistan South Asia and the Middle East. These countries are full of potential and they are almost untouched so far, from affiliate marketing. You won’t find many offers for these countries in your mainstream CPA Networks this means there is almost no competition or not many affiliates are promoting in these countries .. Adcombo have hundreds of offers from different countries, giving you a chance to pick up offers for geo of your choice..

Responsive Team

There is nothing more annoying than having an affiliate manager who never helps you or answers the questions you ask from them, or even when they do, they give you a canned response. I have seen in almost all networks except 2,3 networks, the majority of affiliate managers will never try to make extra effort to help you out.

adcombo built in support

adcombo built in support system

With Adcombo you are assigned a dedicated affiliate manager who will make sure all your questions are answered on time and they will do their best to help you out. They have also got a built in support area within their CPA Network interface, so you don’t have to goto your email inbox or open skype to get in touch with your affiliate manager. You can simply open a ticket from your network account dashboard.   The awesome support they offer to their affiliates is what I love the most about Adcombo; their team! I would advise you to ask for Ella as your affiliate manager ..

So far my experience with Adcombo has been excellent , Now it’s your turn to join them and let me know what you think by making comments below!

Thanks for the T Shirt Maxbounty

Maxbounty was the first non -incent network to accept me as their affiliate, and one of those networks who never missed a single payment. They are known for their timely payments. I have received many goodies from them since i joined their network. MaxBounty  was kind enough to send me  their 10th anniversary t-shirt, however due to some postal issues my T shirt was returned. But now, i have finally received it thanks to Steven Sauve who contacted me directly and we resolved the postal issue.

I would like to apologize to the Maxbounty team for the inconvenience caused because of trouble with postal system, and thank them for sending me this T shirt again. So guys enough about that talk here is the cool MaxBounty t shirt i am talking about.

Click Cabin Sent me $10,000 cheque

EDIT : Please read complete article before joining Click Cabin , I do not recommend you to join such networks instead join some good reputable CPA  network .

Yes yes yes they are a great network who wont hesitate pay you on hourly basis, hell on all other networks and their Payments terms Click Cabin FTW. Working with their affiliate manager vinod chouhan is a example for all other affiliate managers. Here are a few qualities because of which Click Cabin Beats any other network

  • Rapid payments to Publishers
  • Weekly Payments
  • The Biggest Paying Rewards Program in the Industry
  • Massive Ad Inventory ,Top Payouts and Lots of Exclusive Deals

Ok Ok i was kidding ......  As i have already written about such networks in my Fraudulent CPA Networks Exposed  post , Click cabin is another and fresh example  of networks which are just here to ripoff your traffic and your comissions.  All this started when i received email from linkedin  that some one with name vinod chouhan  Business Development Executive at Click Cabin Affiliate Network   has sent me message , saying

Hello kj,
Thanks of adding me in your connection list.
I am vinod chouhan handling Click Cabin Affiliate Network. I have gone through your profile and seems wonderful.I Hope we are doing great business together.Please share your contact details at vinod.chouhan@clickcabin.com or add me on Skype by the name ---------.

Sounds good i added him on skype and we have a little chit chat i get an idea how much he knows about this industry and how good their network is. Here is my conversation with him ,

click cabin network

How you works ?

OK so sounds Great as he was telling me reason i should join them as "Join us We are Click Cabin Affiliate Network and we are doing good in US ,UK and India And we are adding some affiliate who can work as a premium publishers because we wants to add some affiliates in our list through which we can only promote our offers And mostly we deal in direct offers we don't take brokered and 3rd party offers." After this i was royally impressed by him and decided to give him a try . So i joined with address as i shown in image below

click cabin network

And after going through offers i decided to apply for a offer and in offer description box i wrote i will promote this offer using Google adword  and submit application for approval and ping this genius  on skype. and he asks me "okay wait I have a question how you'll track the lead if you are using google adword traffic?? because i think its equal to incent traffic?" See screenshot below.

Click Cabin Affiliate Network

I really love this guy  and i was and i am speechless after this , How such idiots even manage to get into this industry , Who even dont know about traffic types , And the basic terms used on daily basis in this industry.

By the way after this conversation he decided not allow me to run this offer because i was gonna run this offer on google adwords which is incentive traffic and advertiser does nt allow fraud LOL.

Anyways at the end About offers from direct advertisers yes they do deal directly with advertisers have a look , The affiliate links redirect to another affiliate network (yes he said they dont broker offers ) .

click cabin

 

At the end i would like to advise all new affiliates to stay away from such affiliate networks and try to stick with only well known and reputable networks ….

Network owners why your pictures with fancy cars and stacks of money never attract me.

I always hate it when a network owner tries to attract affiliates to his network by showing off his wealth , Call me hater , but i have nothing to do with your wealth yes you can show off by posting pictures of you with fancy cars, stacks of money, hot girls on your social profiles because that’s your hard earned money, However i hate it when people use their pictures as a method to promote themselves and to attract affiliates,  Specially those people who have started their network within a week and try to represent themselves like they own this whole industry, This according to me is simply immature and you sir! Act like a  noob who made his first conversion online ! you make good money good for you ! post on your own social profiles but never try to promote yourself with all that crap !

Being an affiliate , i will try to write down what i being a CPA affiliate think about your childish posts and pictures when i see them floating around internet,

i really dont bother how much you make because its all about how much i will be able to make myself. Instead that gives me impression that you sir ! are shaving your affiliates more then anyone else because all money you are showing off is earned by your affiliates and you being a middle man shaved their ass off.  As one of the people i respect most in this industry Jason Akatiff from A4D says "affiliate networks are nothing different then Banks " Yes lets face the truth not a single network in this industry does get its % over each and every lead we affiliates generate how ever there are few more greedy people who do shave over top of that, How many of us know your exclusives are nothing but another way for you to make most out of your offers.

Newbies always love such stuff and always get trapped when they see pictures of fancy cars floating around and join these networks and get shaved and scrubbed hard , To be honest there it all takes one case from FTC and all these people with short term business streatgey  vanish with their cars .. i will advise all my readers to never fall for shiny marketing tactics instead go with those who are legit ,professional and their C.E.O s are professionals and who do know this industry well, Who you know will survive all this crisis our industry is going through, Go with those networks who dont cause trouble for whole industry and those who don`t give it bad name,We are not scammers , we are not spammers …Money never grows on tress in world of internet and we do make money by working our ass off , Respect all the laws and regulations and try to be with networks which do have a long term business plan instead of going with those with short term business plans and no business ethics ..

Affiliate networks you should join after BLAM Ads

What Should I Do - Thinking Person Asks in Thought BubbleAfter fall of BLAM Ads  there are many affiliates with incentive traffic  looking for affiliate networks  who accept incentive traffic . There are a very few incentive networks i can vouch for at this time as they pay on time and are honest in making payments .i would like to do a quick review for all of them and provide you as much information i have about them as possible .

 

You maybe surprised to know that at start i used to drive incent traffic while i was working with my first affiliate network (CPA LEAD ). They are one of the best & leading Incentive Network who specialize in only incentive traffic using their own In-house proprietary platform . I have seen people making real big bucks (i am talking about figures which will leave your G.F fainted) with CPAlead their payment terms are also good with payment methods including Check, PayPal, Wire, Payoneer, ACH (Direct Deposit) payments and they do pay Net-30,Early Payment (upon request) . If you earn over $1,000 a month, you can ask Payment Support for NET-15.They also pay weekly but for that you will have to make some serious bucks with them. Over all they are one of the oldest and a well reputed network who pays every time on time .

 

Adscend Media is again one of the leaders in incentive industry founded in 2009 they have won many awards in industry and always in TOP Networks list offering Net-30,Net-15,Net-7,Bi-weekly payments and by payment methods including Check,Wire,ACH,PayPal.They also have lowest Minimum Payment limit $50which is really good for beginers.

 

Mobooka is another Incentive network being run by Steve Howe who also owns a well known  and a reputable network network Convert2Media .Since 2008 the day of formation convert2media has never missed a single payment and I hope they never will miss a payment  with Mobooka too. Mobooka network uses  Check, PayPal, Wire as payment method and also they do offer Net-30 payments . They also run on In-house proprietary platform .

Incent.ly is a newly launched incentive network which is a division of Peerfly Affiliate Network  i have already posted a review about them here. Peerfly again is a network in my on time every time payments list and i never heard a bad thing about them  they are in industry since 2009 and have won many awards. and there is no reason you should n`t join Incent.ly if you are running Incent traffic as it is owned by one of the best network in CPA Industry their payment methods include PayPal, Payoneer, Postal Check, ACH (US Only), or Bank Wire, And they offer net 30, net 15, weekly, and even daily payments to their loyal affiliates.

R.I.P EWA

ewa network

Ryan Eagle of EWA network  announced that they are closing down It is a sad and also a good news for all affiliates. Good news in a way that they did owe huge amount of cash to many affiliates world wide and we have been hearing about EWA payment issues for a quiet a while now , here is the article i wrote about EWA a few days ago Is EWA/BlamAds Really Dead ? . Now at least EWA do acknowledge publicly that they did had some serious problems at EWA network related to payments and instead of promoting them encouraging affiliates to send them more traffic they do admit they have nothing to pay to their affiliates.Check out post on Perform Outsider on how much they owe to their affiliates here Happy Valentines Day To Ewa.

Now bad bit , Yes i do may have problems with the way Ryan Eagle was promoting his network while he wasn`t paying his existing affiliate or problem with his payouts EPCs etc but still he was a Great entrepreneur he worked really hard to take EWA network to heights he was as he used to say “Hated amongst few and loved  by many” affiliates . He was  and is a great example for all CPA Network Owners. Also EWA was one of the industry champions and that will for sure have a very negative effect on industry .

Here is the copy of official EWA Network announcement

Dear EWA Affiliates,

First off, I would like to personally apologize as truly and honestly as I can for everything that EWA Private Network has put our publishers through these past months. It’s been a turbulent road for my company and it’s taken quite the toll on me and the staff around me. Believe it or not, I care about the reputation of my company I care about the publishers in my network – it burdens me daily to see what has happened. We incurred massive losses due to non-paying merchants, combined with internal problems lead to a situation which needed an outside investor to help resolve.

I spent upwards of a year seeking individuals and companies to invest into EWA and the entire process of finding an investor was draining on me – I was lead on and let down many times. Unfortunately, our most recent investor possibility ended up falling through leaving EWA with no other options. We have decided that it’s time to close our doors while we continue to seek a new investor to take over the company. Meanwhile, we will be working with a restructuring agent to liquidating our receivables and sell our assets in a way to repay outstanding payables.

Leaving EWA Network on a note like this was the absolute hardest choice I’ve made in my business career. I gave it my absolute 100% best and tried the hardest that I could, spending hours a day trying to make this company the best that it could be. Running EWA Network for these past four years and interacting with the thousands of EWA affiliates has been one of the best experiences that I’ve had, and I’d like to apologize once again to all our clients for the situation that we were put in.

Finally, I would like to apologize to our staff – especially the account managers, international partners, and our network manager on the front lines everyday. They were put into a situation where they were at the mercy of the companies problems. I accept the blame fully for it, and I want nothing that happened to the company reflect onto their shoulders because they did the best they did with cards they were dealt. When we thought the investor was coming through, I told them to pull – and when we were left empty handed, they were the ones to take the blame. They were the lifeblood of our company and I appreciate every minute they spent making EWA great.

On March 1st, 2013 we will be pausing all traffic to EWA publishers. Thank you for your years of support and the millionsof dollars in revenue that has run through EWA Network. It’s been amazing to see the growth of so many publishers since the beginning and I’m truly grateful for every single one of you.

To Success,

Ryan Eagle, Partner

 

 

I would like to wish best of luck to Ryan Eagle for his future and hope he will learn from his mistakes.

For Those of you who are looking for networks like EWA I would recommend you CPA Networks given below , Use my referral links to get approved easily , These networks are so far best networks who pay on time and every time.

Making money using Host and Post offers

As 75% if my traffic comes through PPV advertising i am always looking to have more control over my landing pages and my visitor and i am always concerned to build list first and then monetize it. One of best ROI i got with my campaigns is   through my own small funnels promoting host and post offers.

It is a type of lead generation where you have to host advertisers forms and then post  data to the advertiser . The main benefit of using host and post is that it gives you more control over your creatives and landing pages and makes it easier for you to collect information about your visitors and use it for later use .

Here is an example for you guys check out this website www.ameriadvance.com

If you look at this guy he is collecting data about his visitors on first page (building list ) with information loan amount ,name , email ,state and zip code ( can be useful to promote payday offers in future).

On next three page he is actually using form provided to him by his Host and Post offer network , and all that data is sent to advertiser .

This way you get freedom from all creative restriction etc and makes a lot of things easier for you. If you look at payday offers being promoted on CPA Networks advertisers are doing it in same way .. Most of host and post networks pay on rev share basis how ever a few of them also agree on pay per lead specially if you have huge traffic volume with you .

I personally use www.pingtree.co.uk and T3 leads to get host and post offers .

 

hope this article will open new way of making money for you , If you have any questions do let me know by commenting below .

 

Happy (belated) birthday to kjrocker.com!

Rite now at the time of writing this post its 5th of October 2012 , The First birthday of my blog and so todays article will be about my blog . My very first post on this blog was What is CPA Marketing which i wrote on October 5th, 2011 . The reason o started out my own blog was, I am very passionate about what i do , Seriously my favorite topic if you ask me i like to talk about is Online Marketing, I do love to talk about my business with others and in offline world very few people do understand this stuff.With that said another reason i am member of many public forums did loved to talk about marketing help out other people but there i felt kind of censorship . All discussion forums do have some kind of censorship in terms of moderation. So to write freely about anything i want  and to share it with my fellow marketers i created this blog .

When i look back when i started blogging i can remember i had very little traffic on my blog but to be honest i never cared about traffic . I just share my passion with people and share what i do know. Rite now i do receive very decent traffic and i am very pleased with my blogs overall performance . Also my monthly earnings from this blogs are also quiet decent and its a great help to fuel up my test campaigns as i always keep on testing campaigns and earnings from my blog are a great help for sure rite now my blog earnings come from referral commissions. tough i always make sure to provide best possible value to my readers and only recommend top notch products and services thats the reason you wont see any random bob or toms product being reviewed here. I also make sure that i always give link back to only top and always try to only recommend cream out of cream to my readers .

Finally when i think what i have gained so far i am amused i personally helped out hundreds of people to make money, And that is the best thing one can do and i am glad i did it . The  love i receive from my readers through emails,facebook and on skype is what keeps me always motivated and motivates me to write more  .  During one year my blogs growth was amazing . Kjrocker was Media partner for Clickbooth`s  Ad:Tech San Francisco’s party  held on April 3rd 2012 and the biggest achievement so far is that kjrocker.com is nominated for Affiliate Rewards’ King of the Bloggers contest . I would also thanks my friends and readers for all your support and help , and i expect  you will keep supporting kjrocker.com  also please keep your feedback coming .
