RevResponse pays you for generating leads using your website, blog, newsletters and mailing lists with wide range of offers and accepts international traffic.
What is Revresponse?
RevResponse is an ad network that pays you for generating leads using your website, blog, newsletters and even mailing lists. You refer a user to sign-up for the free content or magazine and RevResponse pays you commission on every qualified subscription. There are many other affiliate networks that do the same only for US users but Revresponse accepts international traffic.
1. Pays for Lead
Revresponse pays you for leads (i.e. free signups) and so your users don’t need to buy anything for you to be getting paid. It means better conversions. Payout per signup is in range of $1.50 to $20.00 per action.
Revresponse offers PayPal as the payment method with minimum payout level as $50. Payment is on a net-45 payment model, i.e. money will be sent approximately 45 days after the end of the month where a publisher crosses the minimum payout level.
3. Co-branded site integration
4. Wide range of offers
Revresponse not only accepts international publishers but also offers wide range of products and offers ranging from Agriculture to manufacturing to Energy services and lots more.
5. Referral Program
The referral program pays 20% of the earnings that a publisher generates for the first six months. (Signup as my referral here) 20% is really good cut but there are very few publishers who would generate considerable income in the first 6 months. Ideally I would like to have lower percentage say 10% or so of publisher earnings for lifetime.
6. Can promote without a website
This is a big advantage of Revresponse over other ad networks. You don’t even need to have a website to be promoting their offers. You can even monetize your email newsletters, 3rd party lists, blogs, RSS feeds, your Facebook friends and lot more…
There are no clear cut guidelines as to what a valid lead is and what is not. Lead Qualification criteria are determined by the magazine owners, and are not very transparent to publishers. Reports reveal very little information as to why leads get rejected. Go4Expert saw 98% rejection.
And you can see that most of the offers were much related to Go4Expert audience i.e. technical.
Offer listing doesn’t reveal any helpful information either.
And many a times, magazines become unavailable without any notice to the publishers.
Success with Revresponse depends largely on the fact that there are offers that fits your niche. I think it would be worth trying Revresponse because they don’t need a banner space at all and you can even test them on certain specific pages of your site like a thanks page. Just after user register’s you can offer your user some free magazines. That is where I saw maximum leads were submitted for Go4Expert. If you see your leads are being accepted by the magazine owners, you can continue using them.
