Commission Junction Basics

Are there good links for beginners that have just started to use CJ? For example, is a click on an ad the same as a lead?

Would appreciate the help.

Any basic post that would sum up the whole program and how to benefit the most from it?

I don't know of any pay-per-clicks on cj. I like building stores using products throughout the network. Go to "Get Links" and do a product search for something, sometimes you can build some neat little stores like that.

Magazines and Flowers seem to pay like crazy.

I only know of 2 PPC on CJ.

Most are PPA (pay per action).

Some clicks on a banner/link and you get paid if they "convert" into a customer that buys something (sale) or fills out a form (lead).

A lead usually involves a user entering their contact information and submitting a form.

Depending on the program, a lead might be a simple email address or might involve submitting address / phone number / zip code information.

Most pay per lead programs will filter out bad leads which cannot be contacted before they approve the lead.

Other programs involve buying a product or service or signing up for a free trial (usually with a credit card).
