    What ends up being the best affiliate program through them? PPC or the commission one?

    I am new to posting here but have been lurking for a while, thought I would finally start trying something instead of just reading all the time.

    I've heard rev share actually, but am not sure. Some experts will chime in soon enough.

    just curious how you are going to promote. BH or WH?

    Thanks for the reply, I was thinking that but will wait for the experts. Another question, does AFF require you use a website to send the traffic through? I was going to do BH..I think the WH market for this type of niche is to saturated.

    I have more than $50 due(as $50 is min payment) but they are not paying me. They say my conversion ratio is less than needed. So don't waste your time with AFF if you don't have high quality(convertible traffic)

    Neither - AFF are asshats. Choose another adult program if you are sending adult traffic.

    LoadedCash and PimpMansion are good alternatives.

    Why do I say AFF are asshats? If they find out you are pushing traffic via a BlackHat way and/or spamming forums, social sites, etc... They will ban you and you won't get paid. I lost about 3k when I was sending to them.

    Other programs don't care how you push the traffic. As long as you are not stuffing cookies of course.

    I was in the adult game for about 3 years... I can tell you anything you want to know about any of the adult affiliate programs... LOL!

    Thanks Cyp, you say you were, does that mean it's not good to get into now or you just got tired of it and moved on? I'll definitely try those two out, I just thought about AFF first since I've seen it talked about on here a few times.

    I promote fling.com and happy as not that much traffic but I still get checks on a crappy site I do nothing with.

    Pull almost $400 one month but again not doing shit with the site now but still getting a check in few days for $70. Two sign ups or $35 per.

    anway highly recommend and you can COUNT on their checks or deposits if you choose. I do checks and never missed a payment.

    The company is hugetraffic.com and I promote fling.

    dont do much but I get checks every now and then.

    If you decide to sign up after checking them out please PM and I'll send you my affil link.

    If you send a few qualified referals their way if you go thru me and I get a affil com fee I'll split it with you when paid via paypal.

    niv78 honestly i suck at testing and tracking but I do per sign up. I have little traffic so pleased to see some easy money.

    Here's all i've done to make bucks with fling

    I have a standard ass ugly blogger blog with content in a micro niche market that looks for adult related stuff.

    I have a small geo targetted banner that sits on top of page just above all post.

    THATS IT no pictures of chicks...no other links...nothing...ok maybe a couple of youtube videos sprinkled in but seriously only a couple.

    I promote the blog all standard ways bookmarks..rss feeds.. one in a blue moon i'll do some post in crags list but not too often.

    have a couple of basic ass chick videos, thongs and crap..nothing nude..and all videos have text of my domain and also in the description is a link of course. submitted crappy videos all over and make some money every now and then.

    If i was not so damn lazy and stuck in a rut I could have 20 or 30 of these easily i think making money with them. they convert!

    That's cool indeed, you should consider putting some more effort into it and keep the cash train rolling :)

    Well... I used to be real deep into spamming a well known social networking site and the traffic generated from the site did wonders with adult dating. In the past 4 months the particular social networking site actually got their crappy code cleaned up and started IP filtering... So in essence my fortune money making business went to shit.

    There are still other ways to push to the adult sites and make money... I just stopped doing it because "my process" went to shit - that's all.

    Fling is good... But I got into it with Fling because they dicked me over too. They knew where my traffic was coming from and they were totally fine with it. When things got REAL HOT they started being little bitches and told me they were cutting my accounts off with no additional conversions paid out. Kinda shitty if you ask me... I sent them over 500K worth of sales in 2007 and they have the nerve to do some shit like that to me?

    Anyhow... Here is a quick rundown of a few sites and what you should look for when promoting them...

    LoadedCash - Pay Per Sale - They convert quickly and you will like the instant results. This is called "Front Loading". You send them a shitload of uniques and you are going to get instantly paid for them. Things will convert quickly and you will have a smile on your face. When you stop sending traffic to LoadedCash you will see your conversions diminish quickly. When this happens... Just remember this is because you were front loaded. LoadedCash will take heat for you if you get complaints. They will let you know they need to change your affiliate ID and you can carry on... Business as usual.

    PimpMansion - Pay Per Sale - Same deal as Loaded Cash... You send them a good amount of traffic and you will get Front Loaded. However with Pimp Mansion the conversions will still trickly in after your traffic volume decreases. These guys are AWESOME to work with if you are spamming a site hard and the site you are spamming tries to throw some heat on PimpMansion - PimpMansion will basically say fuck you to the site you are spamming and let you continue on about your business...

    DatingGold
    - Leads and/or Pay Per Sale - DatingGold has always been a solid contender. They have a dating site and a cam site you can promote. You can make a quick buck of their "per lead" program. Depending on how much traffic you send them... Will depend on how much you can negotiate per lead. They will take some heat from places for you... But if they can't take the heat they will just simply tell you to stop sending and pay you for what you have sent - future conversions included.

    Fling - Pay Per Sale - They used to be the hot shit about 2 years ago. They would convert great and paid you on-time with a FedEx Delivery to your house. Hell they even sent me a couple ipods for Christmas. They started shaving leads about 1 year into it on all the affiliates (not sure why) and things started to dwindle. They took heat from companies for you and were great to work with. I think one day they started wearing panties and got all "bitch like" and started canning people and going back on "their word". In my opinion a man is only as good as his word - Fling is NOT good to their word!

    I would send to those people I mentioned (with the exception of Fling). They are all great to work with and will make you money. You can "always" negotiate for a higher PPS or Per Lead if you want to - They will work with you. I personally have never done revshare... I just am the type of person that wants the quick buck. Another reasoning I never have done revshare is for the simple fact that if (like Fling did to me) the program decided you have caused too much heat and they can you... Your revshare just went in the toilet.

    OK... I have babbled enough... Hope that helps everyone understand a little bit about each program.

    Cyp

    i use adult friend finder... was up to $30 at once stage a day but then dropped and was averaging $10 to $20 a day just with that....
    all i did was add it to my adult site as an ad (ad space could be brought for $20 a month and it was making me $20 a day looool).... then also i ran a paid to click and paid to signup site so added it there and got some great amounts of signups which made my click value more....

    got paid my first check of $50 and never cashed it and only now requested it was added back to my account funds as it was just to see if they paid or not :p

    my ratios are 1 in every 197 people signup at the moment which is crap :p but was because of the paid per click i was doing :( damn

    anyhow i have $130 sitting in it now so next pay time i get the cash and my affiliate manager said he will do his best (after a bit of sweet talking my end) to keep me on paid per signup as i said i would do my best to keep it down to near the 50's and eventually 20's but no guarantees that it will be 100% of the time.... anyhow its a nice cool side income

    and if anyone wants to signup i wouldnt mind you using my linky :p

    What do you mean "near the 50's and eventually 20's?" I would have no problem using your aff link, but I just have to decide who I want to promote. After what I hear about AFF, I am thinking of taking Cyp's advice and go with LoadCash or Datinggold.

    well for AFF you are ment to have a conversion rate of 1 signup to every 20 people who click the link

    mine is 1 person in every 197 or something stupid like that :p but still they sent my check last time :p

    promote whoever.... or promote them all and see how they turn out....

    ive just actually asked for a raise on my amount per signup so i can do some ppc testing with adwords etc.. :p he he dont know if i will but was worth a try to see if i can get some more cash out of them.... and also asked them if they accepted emails to be sent if it wasnt unsolicited and instead was a meaningfull reply or was in a newsletter etc for my optins... will wait to see what they say.. but if its a go ahead then i will be making loads every single day :p

    Free sign up, right? 5% seems kind of high for a regular conversion. But then again, what do I know. You are the one promoting and not me, right!

    I would stay away from AFF. Fling was always good for me.
