For my money, CJ is tops. Excellent ranges of merchants, products and services, truly global coverage, prompt payments and a highly responsive support team.

Don't waste time arguing about who's number 2 etc.

I guess the golden rule here is that if you've found something that works for you, who cares what network it's on?

Your top 3 might be different from my top three. Everyone's traffic responds differently.

I rotate new affiliate programs in and out looking for performance. I try to work with at least 5 different programs at a time, so if one is late paying, the affect is less devastating.

I have also noticed that programs and affiliate partners change over time and what was profitable last year might be less so now.

As far as the network itself, CJ is tops IMHO. Great interface, consolidated payments, easy data feed access, and customer service always responds within a day or 3.

How the heck do I get datafeeds and pay them whatever amount it is to get access. I can't find it anywhere and no reply email in the past 9 days!

Once I set up to get datafeeds do I get access to all of them or do I have to request them or what?

Thanks!

My $.02 is that I've tried to make CJ and LinkShare work for the past year, and have barely been able to generate more than $100 a month from either one. I stayed away from Share-a-sale, probably because their site looks inactive, BUT a few weeks ago I started promoting some of their programs, and it looks like SAS is going to do much better for me than CJ and LS.

Just goes to show how what works for one, may not work for the others.... or maybe you just don't know how a program will do until you TRY IT.

I agree the top 3 are CJ, Linkshare and ShareAsale.

ShareAsale may not get the respect the others get but they are my top money maker.

Go SAS!

I was thinking to go with SaA, they are charging 20% what we will be paying to affiliates.

Please count.

We are in $500 000/m affiliates sales, counting 5%, affiliates will make 25000 and 5000 for SaS I preffer to give all to affiliates as bonuses, even it take me longer to attrack affiliates. Finally we will be using in-house AF program
