Smowtion - Official Discussion Thread (with Payment Proof!)
Payment proof of $130 attached below! This is a LEGITIMATE company!
My old review thread was removed for some reason, this is a revised review of Smowtion here - this should be the thread for all conversation.
Smowtion is an ad network company that focuses on CPC, CPM, AND CPA ads. While CPM ads appear most often, it's the CPA ads that get you the most money usually.
They offer all of the usual ad formats, and ads appear instantly and fill 100% of pageviewes. Ads on proxified pages ARE allowed.
The strange thing about Smowtion is it doesn't work well for everybody. I've been using it all summer, and have done great with it - other's report almost no earnings at all. But I can at least say I am making about 20x as much as I did with AdBrite.
The minimum payout is $100, and they ask that you fill out tax info by $20. The revenue share is 60% at default, but if you use a link below, you get 80%.
Regarding the earnings - my daily average for this month (September 1 - 11) was $1.14 + $5.47 from referrals. My best performing ad is 300x250. My average CPM is about .09.
I never needed support really, but I tried emailing them and I did not get a response (I didn't really need it). I have not tried phoning them, although they do offer multiple toll-free numbers to call for support.
They also offer a referral program, where you earn 5% of what your affiliates make for 6 months.
They do offer great reporting, allowing you to check earnings based on time, country, ad unit, and compare things like earnings, clicks, and impressions.
Use the following link if you want to get 80% of ad revenue share instead of 60%:
