Thread: Commission Junction Does Not Have an Affiliate Program

  1. Commission Junction Does Not Have an Affiliate Program

    Commission Junction, "a global leader in the online marketing channels of affiliate marketing and managed search", does not use affiliate marketing itself.

    Here's an excerpt from their FAQ:

    How can I promote Commission Junction and get credit for referrals to your program?

    Question:
    How can I promote Commission Junction and get credit for referrals to your program?
    Answer:
    Commission Junction discontinued its referral program several years ago and we do not currently have or anticipate reinstituting an active referral program for publishers anytime in the near future.

    What does it say when one of the "global leaders" in affiliate marketing doesn't use affiliate marketing themselves? It says to me that they don't believe in their own product.

    How embarrassing is that?

    It's probably because they don't need it anymore - why should they pay somebody referral commissions when that same visitor would probably sign up with them anyways (considering CJ is all over the web).

    I guess once you reach "Big Elephant Size" you no longer find it acceptable to give up profits to others...

    Didn't this very same thing happen with Google Adsense as well?

    They're big enough already, no need to reward people for recruiting anymore. Too bad for the people who spent a lot of time on it though.
