UNDERCOVER AFFILIATE BROTHER

MRKTHUB (nice name btw) went undercover brother as an affiliate and signed up to 50 affiliate networks to document their experience.  

Here’s some of the more interesting results:

  • 27 of 50 networks approved the affiliate account within 12 hours 🏎️
  • One network even approved them without any contact 😲
  • Almost HALF the Affiliate Managers gave them landing pages other affiliates were using. 🙄
  • Just 7 of 50 Affiliate managers were able to offer actionable tips on scaling, lowering traffic costs and making tweaks on pre-landers. 👎
  • Interestingly, 16/50 Affiliate managers couldn’t implement a tracking pixel and had to forward it to their tech to handle (maybe part of the company policy to avoid any minor complications and liability?) 🤨
  • Only 2 of the 50 Affiliate managers claimed the offer was exclusive yet available on other networks 👍
  • 38 of 50 agreed to payouts bumps after simple negotiation without even seeing any traffic  💰

The test will certainly be keeping some Affiliate Networks on their toes. Only a handful ‘truly excelled’ of the 50 tested.
