Motive Interactive Releases Advent 2.0

by Jeremy Schoemaker on November 4, 2008 · 81 comments

Motive Interactive is releasing their new version of their advertising platform called Advent 2.0.  The system was developed to increase advertisers ROI and to maximize publishers profits.

I have never worked with Motive Interactive, but I’ve been seeing a lot of information popping up about this new release.  And after I was contacted by them to check out the system, I thought I’d detail my thoughts about the new release in a post.

At first glance, I’m really impressed.  The interface is fast loading and easy to use.  They have a a great selection of offers, lots of which are exclusive to them.  One I’ll discuss in more detail later.  But overall, I have no idea what Advent 1.0 was like, but 2.0 looks pretty sweet.  I guess it’s ran off of an ajax system, so everything is running off of one page.  Very nice.  Advent contains features other platforms can’t touch, like multiple payout support including commission based sales, individual publisher and advertiser allocations and lead routing to multiple advertisers and buyers.

Once I logged in for the first time, I wanted to check out the stats section to see what that was like.  They have probably the most detailed statistics I have seen from an affiliate network.  That’s a huge plus in my opinion.  And is a huge selling point for any publisher.

They have a really good demo video you can see the system for yourself:

I also noticed, they have a rewards program that is paying 2%.  Most are around 1%, so obviously these guys know the value in rewards.  The payouts are below:

Commissions – Rewards
$1,000 – $10
$2,500 – $25
$5,000 – $50
$10,000 – $100
$15,000 – $150
$20,000 – $200
$25,000 – $250
$30,000 – $300
$50,000 – $500
$100,000 – $1,250
$150,000 – $2,000
$200,000 – $3,000
$500,000 – $10,000
$1,000,000 – $20,000
$1,250,000 – $25,000

They also have the highest referral commission around, with 5.5%! But they do state “The referred publisher must continue to generate commissions without a lapse of twelve (12) calendar months in order for the referrer to continue receiving the 5.5% commission from that publisher each month.”

Overall, Motive is making a big step with Advent 2.0.  If they weren’t a top affiliate network before, they will be after people check this system out.  They have some really cool offers like this:

And exclusive offers like this one I found that can be run in search and email:

1 Sohail

Hmm will be great to read about it again. I think need to check Advent 2.0

2 Tushar Dhoot

I agree. The interface seems very clean and high-tech.

Will be fun to sign up with them and see what they got.

3 Mike Henry

I don’t like running those survey ads. I’ve received poor feedback from them. When they check off the box for college information, the telemarketers are relentless.

4 Goran Website

Yeah, the surveys haven’t done wonders for me neither.

5 Pat with SPI

I’ll definitely have to check this out for my blog. I love seeing new advertising opportunities spring up and improve on what has been done in the past.

Thanks for this =) Happy Election Day!

6 Tushar Dhoot

Can’t believe Shoe didn’t make a post about this….

I’m going to up all night watching the results probably.

7 Zurpit

yea I hope the results will be in on time

8 BusinessX

shoe still hasn’t posted, it’s the day after.

9 How To Make Money

I checked out the demo it seems pretty cool. And I am a big (HUGE) fan of lead generation campaigns. The statistics that they have for you are awesome to and the navigation and interactivity is pretty neat. I have never used them before, but they seem like a place that I am gonna’ have to check out now. I have been seeing them popping up more and more too.

Thanks for the post and the info.

10 Andreas Johansson

Oh that looks cool, need to try that out for my English blog asap

11 Ben Tremblay


12 Ben Tremblay

Sorry, should follow that with a buffer overflow! ;)

13 Ben Tremblay

On a more serious note Shoe, I might have to check them out because their user interface looks very nice. Not like the web 0.1 MarketLeverage’s interface…

14 Luke Smith

Ben – Thank you for the comments on the Motive Network Interface.

15 Tushar Dhoot

These guys do seem to be promoting their new interface a lot. I’m seeing it on every blog!

16 Goran Website

Yup, same here. It will take off extremely well if they keep this marketing up.

17 browie

I have seen them pop up all over now. They seem to be taking a smaller approach to getting their name out than what ML did. Maybe I can jump on their bandwagon too. I love referrals but it is always tough to keep up your end of the stick.

User interface looks very nice.

18 mrkbsm

They’re doing a good job getting the attention of some big name bloggers – looks like they’ll be doing pretty well in the near future.

19 Seo Creations

It will take off extremely well if they keep this marketing up.

20 Derek

I just wrote a review of this interface myself and agree that it is a really slick UI that blows others away. There were a few things that I didn’t like but they were not enough to detract from the positives.

21 Luke Smith

Derek – I just approved you on a few offers – have at it my friend ! We will look into improving the interface and reading your review closely to do so ! – Thanks for you review Derek !

22 OnlineGodfather

nice rewards :evil:

23 BlabWeb

The 5.5% is not bad … even with the 12 months without a lapse in comissions

24 Valeria | TimelessLessons

not bad at all…

25 BusinessX

I often wonder if there are too many affiliate programs? Or more accurately, if one could join too many programs? Maybe after I am converting well for the programs I already have, then I could try some others which would improve my campaigns’ margins. I need to get A right before worrying about B.

Of course that is just personally, as to Motive it is nice to know it has an endorsement from someone like shoemoney. Will keep up for future posts and mentions of Motive from shoe.

26 Keral Patel

Really nice thinking. Going for many many programs will in end get nothing from all of them. What most of the people do is joins one and before it is settled they move on with the next one.

27 Brian

If you wanna be nice sign up under referrer mmads2008. Byahhh!!!

28 Bryn Youngblut

Haven’t had a chance to use them yet even though I have an account. I’m gonna take another look at their offers.

29 Luke Smith

Bryn – Talk to your AM – He would be more then happy to help you find some offers to run.

30 ethan

This is the kicker for me. Time to sign up with Motive…

31 Nick Throlson

Motive Is By Far the best CPA network I have been with my aff manager Chris Rodeno goes way out of his way to make sure I’m doing my best & making the most with motive!

32 Luke Smith


33 How To Make Money

4real. That’s cool I think I am going to sign up with them and give them a test run. I have been hearing so much about them.

34 QuickPWN

Will have to give them a try once I get into the CPA business.

35 Zurpit

This looks like a great program, the rewards are very high

36 Jason Leyanna

This looks like an interesting interface and with the AJAX. More details statistics are always nice.

37 Melvin

I thought it was a paid review.. :-) Just joking… Motive has contacted me a lot of times on my different emails inviting me to join them… these days I have seen a lot of posts about them about 89.76% are paid…

38 Dick

This is impressive…. -)(-

39 Luke Smith

Motive reached out to a number of blogs and worked with them closely on writing honest reviews some were very honest, if you read
Derek Semmler (link in the above comment) or Tyler Cruz’s review. Motive will continue to improve our interface and we value highly all our reviews (and comments) -Luke

40 Zurpit

Yea I have been seeing reviews for Motive all over the place,
it looks like
a really good program

41 ZK@Internet Marketing Blog

Not had a chance to check them , but I ll do it now…they seem to be creating a buzz on blogs

42 TV

Had already heard good things…….perhaps I’ll get off my arse now and get signed up.

43 Patrick

That is pretty sweet.

44 meethere

I wrote about it before few days..
really a nice network :)

45 sillimanster

Will have to try this too.

46 Zac Johnson

I also like what’s going on over at Motive. They are quickly becoming one of the best networks around.

47 Luke Smith

Thanks Zac !


How about that Obama, now there is an awesome African American marketing genius!

49 BusinessX

I believe timing is everything for his powerhouse win. Economy made it a hill that could not be surmounted by McCain.

Still he would have been a formidable candidate at anytime, he would have figured a way to morph himself to suit the time.

Change is here, let’s hope it’s for the better.

50 Önder

on these days this will work great and works too.

51 GrabPowerfulCashTactics

5.5 percent is pretty nice. Time to join the hoopla and check if this is gonna kick some ass.

52 Goran Website

Great user interface, quite clean and fast. That’s the perfect receipe for a user friendly interface.

53 coderbari

5.5% is really a cool referral commission rate, will try them soon.

54 jobucks

wow, really superb, I will surely apply as an affiliate

55 hariman

I got your newsletter, thanks

56 Bondox

Hi jeremy, I dont think this people wil accept registeration from small blogs like mine. started just like a month and doing so bad it has less than 1000 visit in a month. how do u want motive interactive to accept this blog as a publisher.

Is there any alternative or is there a way out to register with a low traffic blog like mine

57 Luke Smith

Authority: 1 – Rank: 2,605,173 : Come on over and lets grow that blog of yours !

58 Dick

I think they were really high payments. However, competition in the market is very large.

59 Önder

it looks like a good one.

60 ritchie

I wish there was something like advent 2.0 for the German market.

61 Luke Smith

62 Seo Creations

63 BloggingBanks

Nice review. It also seems that this affiliate system is pretty profitable if you know what you are doing.

64 Önder

you are right on this brother.

65 Latest Technology News

That is a good thing that they have an easy interface. Their is nothing worse than a website that is hard to navigate around. I might go ahead and check this out.

66 Bourne

The rewards you listed are 1%, but you state 2%.
Also, as for reporting on Motive, give us an idea of how it stands against other affiliate programs such as Commission Junction.Thanks

67 Luke Smith

Rewards start at 1% then go to 2% on higher levels.

68 teraOm

You have listed $10 for $1000. Thats 1%. That is one lovely ad for hot visa cards..

69 Sergey Velichkevych

Hey, really. There is some mistakes in percents.

$1,000 – $10 it’s a 1%

and only

$1,000,000 – $20,000 is 2%.

$1M for get 2 percent…. it’s great

70 Luke Smith

Ok to clear things up …

The reward payout starts at 1% then increases to 2% the higher the tier.

The current payout tiers for the rewards program are as follows:

Commissions – Rewards

* $1,000 – $10
* $2,500 – $25
* $5,000 – $50
