Just another small network except this one hasn't even launched. So right now it's nothing. If you want to talk about a new network, look out for next year when the major networks might be getting some major competition if everything works out right. Could be another British invasion. A clean network with major brands.

Not quite. Last year, they reported revenues of $64 million, and they are on pace to beat those numbers this year (according to a recent press release).

That's small compared to the major networks. And since they haven't even launched yet, they're sitting at $0.

Perhaps - please share the data for the revenues of the major networks.

Talking about small as in mport. I think you're talking about AzoogleAds, would be like talking about CJ and bringing in ValueClick. Right now mport is an empty network because it hasn't launched yet. Time will tell how big they get and what kind of merchants they can attract. But from the looks of it, i don't see mport being another Performics, CJ or Linkshare. But i'll be sure to bump this thread in the future to see how they do.

Correct, they are not launched, yet. But in speaking with them, I've learned that they plan to invest a great deal of money in their effort to compete with the established players.

I do think there is one that will compete with the majors in the not to distant future. They're a big network in the UK and work with major brands and are thinking about coming on over and working with major brands in the U.S. And since they already have relationships with some major brands i think they have a good chance. And the network will be a clean network as they are now in the UK. Big brand clean network. That's what i would like to see and it would be nice to give the networks in the U.S. a little competition.

I like the guys at that network too - they seem to have integrity from what I can tell. I hope they can make a dent in the US market.
I also have a feeling that a network we all know and love may be ready to have a growth spurt so they can play more directly with the big boys. Don't know anything official - just a gut feeling. We'll see if I'm psychic or full of it. ;-)

I wouldn't consider them small. They are a rather established, but do primarily 'email marketing'. They took on a LOT of cash ($48 million) not too long ago, and are clearly looking to spend it.
Still this seems like just a re-launch / rebrand.

Man you cant go anywhere without bumping into you guys :-)
Ello Trust , Linda and Shawn
Thanks for the kind words about the network I manage.
See you in Miami at Andy's do if any of you are going? My MD booked my place yesterday and I am so excited to be coming over again so soon.
He must have come round to the idea of letting me off the leash in America to be sending me on all these trips :-) either that or he likes me being away as far as possible hehe
Nice to see you all - I will be floating around WW a lot more in the next few months hoping to chat to as many people as possible.
