I’ve been an affiliate with Maxbounty for a very long time. One thing I’ve noticed about them is they try to stay ahead of the game while maintaining quality and building a long term business.
Maxbounty‘s latest addition is adding Revshare campaigns. Some call this a new way to make money compared to the typical CPA campaigns, I see it as just a different way.
Unlike CPA (Cost per action) campaigns which typically converts and awards affiliates for leads. RevShare is more focused on quality and rewards affiliates with a share of revenue with the merchant (hence the name RevShare (Revenue Share). These are typically similar to CPS (Cost per Sale) offers/campaigns.
The focus on RevShare is more around quality, the better quality you can provide the merchant, the better you (and the merchant) will be rewarded. It’s a win/win for both sides.
While I am a huge fan of CPA offers and will continue to use them for a long time. I can see the value and the desire for RevShare campaigns. Unfortunately over the years, the industry around CPA offers is often given a bad reputation by those who are in it to make a quick buck or to try things shady (think black hat).
The CPS and RevShare industry has been around for a long time as well. Some examples of this type of offers is the Amazon affiliate program and eBay affiliate program (EPN). Both, you are rewarded with a percentage of the overall purchase from the visitors. Keep in mind, each RevShare offer/campaign will be different but the idea is the same.
Right now, Maxbounty has approx 15 RevShare offers, with a revenue sharing percentage ranging from 12-80%. I’m sure more will be added by the time this post goes live and I’m sure they will continually be adding more.
If you haven’t tried RevShare offers yet, this is a great time to start! I wouldn’t be surprised to see more networks starting to add RevShare offers to their arsenal soon.
