    I have made the big jump from making money with Adscend Media to making money with CJ. CJs pay is higher than other AM network as that is where AM networks get their offersfrom. So why not bypass AM networks like CPAl**d, Adscend Media, Peerfly, etc and go straight to the horses mouth?

    When people talk about CPA, I usually on hear/read that they are using some 2nd/3rd tier network like AM, PF, CPAL, MB.....Why are more people not talking about CJ here? I know they have been around for a long time, but they still pay more than other networks whether it be a % of the sales or just for a lead.

    Example:
    By using CJ you are going to get LESS shavings. If you use a 2nd/3rd tier network you are going to get shaved ALOT more. Think about it...If you work with CJ, you only get shaved by them (if CJ is directly associated with the advertiser). If you work for a 2nd/3rd tier network, you are going to be taking in the "A" by both companies (shaved by your network + CJ).

    My guess as to why people don't talk/use CJ:
    I guess it is because the majority of people use AM networks for content locking.

    So here is my thought: If you have a site that you either SEO'd or ran a PPC campaign and are running as an "in-between" site then you should be using CJ. Yes you can do this with an AM network, but you will only be getting 1/2 of what you could be getting if you were to use CJ. The only way to run a successful PPC campaign with adwords is to get the offer from the highest paying network. You cannot make a profit nor be competitive/successful if you are making 1/2 as much with AM network versus if you were to be using CJ.

    Summary:
    CJ = Good For Real Marketing & Less Scrubbing
    AM Networks (ex: CPAL**d or PeerFly) = More Scrubbing & Good For Content Locking

    If I am wrong here please let me know as I want to optimize my niche site (non-content locking) with the highest paying network and CJ seems to be the way to go.

    A 2-page submit that pays $4? What offer is that? lol

    Actually CJ is not a big source of offers for networks. We run a couple of offers through CJ, as do others, because often times if an advertiser is using CJ then CJ is the only way that you can get that offer.

    You might find some good offers on CJ, but mainly if you're looking for per-sale offers. For CPL offers they don't have much of an inventory from what I've seen.

    So CJ is good for commission based offers, but they do have a lot of lead based offers as well. And Jeremey of Adscend...I am talking about SimpleTuition. It is listed as other on your site, but it is a simple 2 page submit and pays 2x as much as you guys...no offense I love you guys but some time you just have to "Bargain Shop"..

    Oh wow, I didn't know CJ had the same offers. I'm already a member on CJ, thanks for that info!

    Wait, I just searched CJ, and I'm not finding the same offers you see on peerfly...

    They don't have a lot of lead offers, but the leads offers they do have pay better than one else I know of.
