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.
