    I've been an AMZ affiliate for many years now. And looking forward to scaling up my revenues with some more aff. programs.

    And CJ(Commision Junction) is one of the few programs I'm loving already.

    So, what do you guys think on comparing these two programs head to head?

    Here is what I've realized so far-

    Commision Junction

    The Goods
    - Great commission rate.
    - Tons of potential products.
    - No hard rules and regulations.


    The Bads
    - Lot of untrusted sellers selling craps.
    - Partially based on paid-marketing or outreach.

    Amazon Affiliate

    The Goods
    - Safe and secure platform to affiliate for.
    - 24-hours sales commision(cookie).
    - An abundance of low-comp keywords.
    - No paid marketing needed.

    The Bads
    - Poor conversion rates.
    - Increasing competition.

    Let me know your thoughts on this guys!

    CJ is an affiliate marketplace whereas Amazon is an affiliate program. Amazon is certainly bigger than CJ but they've got some good software offers. Amazon is really strict too imo.

    I do a lot with the CJ advertisers and have for years and I am quite pleased.

    Sometimes communication is not the best but that is not that big a deal as I'm low maintenance.

    CJ has good products if you know where to look. I feel like with affiliates you should be extremely selective.
