    Hey guys,

    I?ve been experimenting with diversifying revenue streams lately and have got into incentive marketing (mainly mobile offer gateways). Most people here have been screwed by c p a lead at some stage so after my account got banned I started looking elsewhere. I rarely do promotional posts, but I haven?t heard these guys mentioned so thought it may as well be worth a shot. Another VIP from BHW referred me to BlamAds, and so far I like what I see:

    Affiliate link:
    Blam Ads Signup

    Direct link:
    Blam Ads

    Apparently, they are in pursuit of "taking over" the incent CPA market from CPAL, Adscend and other providers and seem to be pretty ambitious. They are run by the same guys who run EWA so you know they are going to be good.

    I've been with them for about about 2 weeks (they launch a few months ago if I'm not mistaken) and so far I'm loving it. We are doing about $200 a day (all WH, organic traffic) and we?re still in the testing phase for a new site.

    Approval took a bit longer than I had hoped, even though I was referred by another successful affiliate who had history with them, but everything else has been great, from the aff manager to the selection of offers. If you sign up under me I?ll be happy to chase your application for you.

    Basically, reasons why I chose Blam over the two major providers despite them being relatively new:

    - Referred by a member here
    - Higher payouts than those of CPAL/Adscend
    - Seem to be relaxed about traffic sources

    As for traffic, I have no idea how strict they are as I am only driving whitehat traffic, but my assumption was based on a paragraph from their last newsletter:

    I don?t think they will be happy with movie site traffic, but I?d recommend just chatting to your AM ? they are there to help you make money so no need to hide anything (especially if you want to get paid).

    And no, I have not been paid yet but I don't expect any problems with this as they're a subsidiary of EWANetwork.com (Eagle Web Assets) which has been around for years. Those of you who make $1k+/day have definitely heard of EWA.

    Payment schedule is here: http://www.blamads.com/payments/
    Once you build up a relationship with them, this is quite flexible as long as you are driving decent leads. You can also get pay bumps on certain offers if your traffic is decent.

    Anyway, as always, let me know if you have any questions. Happy to help any of you get started ? gateways are an easy way to make money.

    Worth a try compared to most networks. They are definitely better than C P A lead that most people use. As long as you drive decent traffic you'll be fine. Everyone has varying experiences with networks, I got referred to EWA by an Exec VIP so that is usually a good sign they are decent.

    We're promoting their mobile offers to students @ $9 per lead and so far so good.

    EWA is a joke. They shave like a motherfucker but they try to act like they're best and most honest network out there.

    Most incentive networks with email subs etc will shave, there was a good article written on here a while ago about why networks shave etc.

    Our site is running at about $0.50 RPC so far on a mobile offer gateway - that's pretty good compared to some of the other networks I've seen.

    From my experience EWA shave's like crazy. I wouldn't recommend them for anything.

    Have you tried the mobile offers yet? We're getting a RPC about 2.5x higher with those compared to the email subs.

    No companies will say in their T&C's that they are happy with movie traffic, lol. I was just giving my experience so far, which is they are pretty chilled out, just make sure you check with them first.

    Movie sites definitely aren't the best way to make money these days, I'm sure you guys can figure something else out.

    And ericsson: thanks, didn't see that other thread (I did browse over the first page of aff programs).

    Mods: feel free to close this thread if shouldn't be here!

    Anyone else: happy to chase up your application if you drop me a message.

    they are just ok. Their lead gateway has "report abuse" so big and bold at the bottom and a big fat blamads logo as well. Kinda turns users away if you ask me. BlamAds if you're watching this thread, remove that crap from your gateway! at least make it smaller and not soo obvious to the visitors that the gateway is a third party advertisement that they can ignore.
