Clickbooth Publisher Affiliate Network

For our next installment of sponsored reviews, we will be looking at Clickbooth Affiliate Network. Looking to host ads on your website for a return? Developed a cure for insomnia and want to start earning some moola by advertising? Clickbooth might just be the answer you are looking for!

Design

I definitely like Clickbooth’s layout: very easy to navigate whether you are publisher or advertiser, I’ve been to other affiliate and advertising sites where it’s almost impossible to find the login; let alone login in as a publisher or advertiser. The no fuss design definitely earns points.

The simple use of colors, red and orange, makes the most important points stand out. I like how they don’t over use the colors where you feel like you’ve just walked into Picasso’s world and at the same time don’t overuse a single color either. As I mentioned earlier, simple, to the point, and easy to use. Definitely positives.

I also like how Clickbooth displays featured advertisers and publishers, discrete, yet noticeable, and definitely not in your face.

Content

Another thing I like about Clickbooth is how they don’t try to overload you with information about their site, their customers, etc. When you click on a topic, such as Publishers, you get a simple two paragraph introduction with bullet points spelling out the major topics. Nothing worse than clicking a link to briefly read what something is all about and be bombarded with information overload. The use of bullet points makes me more likely to read their content than when I see 10 paragraphs of text.

Also for some people this may not be a big deal, but I find the fact that Clickbooth publishes their address and phone number in an easy to see spot is refreshing. When I need or want support, I usually expect to find an easy way to contact the company. I’ve been to sites where you literally spend hours looking for either a phone number or an email to contact the company. I know smaller companies and even big companies don’t always want to their phone number or email to be easily accessible because it adds to overhead, it does help inspire confidence that the company is serious about their product or service when they are confident enough to post their contact info in plain view. They also have an AIM screen name (CLICKBOOTH) if you wish to chat with them online.

Getting Started

There isn’t too much you can do without signing up. The first step is to decide whether you want to be a publisher (put ads on your website) or an advertiser. I opted for publisher, so I clicked Publisher Solutions tab in the menu and in the lower right hand corner, clicked Register Now. The registration process is pretty straight forward, you enter your name, address, phone number, email, and so forth. One of the added features that Clickbooth has implemented to prevent fraud is a phone verification system. You enter your phone number and within a few minutes, you will receive a phone call with a verification number which you must enter correctly into the system before you can complete your registration. After you have completed all the steps, verified that you are indeed human, the next step is to let Clickbooth know what kind of website(s) you have and your traffic information. After you have inputted your brief website information, you will see a message that an account manager will contact you in 48 hours to discuss whether or not you are allowed into the affiliate network. One of the main advantages that Clickbooth touts over its competitors is its rigorous screening of publishers and advertisers to best maximize the affiliate network. By not letting everyone and their mom just join, it allows Clickbooth to maintain a high quality network. You will also receive an email detailing the same. What really took me by surprise was the automatically generated email I received actually contained the name of a live person, their email, and their phone extension. This is definitely not your run of the mill company. With Google Adsense, unless your VIP (i.e. ShoeMoney or John Chow), all you have access to when needing help is a generic support email address.

Conclusion

At the time of this writing, I’m still waiting to hear back from the Approval Department as to whether or not I’m allowed in to their network. But so far, I like what I see and how they operate. There is almost *gasp* a personal feel and touch to knowing an employee’s name and having their email versus some generic single entry email point.

I’ll report more once my account gets approved or denied. If you haven’t already, go sign up and try them out at http://www.clickbooth.com.
