I have been wanting to check out this RevResponse publisher program since they went beta in late February but with all the traveling just have not had time to give it a look. Today I had it on my list to sign up and see what all the buzz is about. Unfortunately like most “reviews” they don’t actually talk about their experience (other then its made them money) … Generally they just post whats in the press release and spam their affiliate links all over. Not that there is anything wrong with that =P.
Damn… I have to wait up to 48 hours srsly? I understand the need for quality control but … well no worries cause only a few minutes later I was approved and also was given the url to my white label storefront (hey thats pretty cool).
So the first thing that I thought was pretty cool is they set you up with a magazine subscription site… now I talk a lot about subscriptions here on shoemoney.com to magazines and now I could make links for free subscriptions to mags like website magazine Pretty slick… ok lets login.
I was kind of puzzled why this has been branded the B2B publisher network but it becomes pretty apparent after logging in. There are a lot of resources and when you first log in the social aspect is the first thing to hit you. There are many options for being apart of the community before you even get down to your custom links.
While it does not look that busy with posts the topics that are being talked about are pretty money. The B2B aspect keeps the signal/noise ration pretty high and on target. I suspect this forum will get pretty busy in the months to come as this network grows.
Looking down more to the offers portion almost every offer is a free “business” resource. Again another interesting twist because now if you find a service you like odds are you can offer your readers a “free” trial or version of the software/magazine/service AND get paid for it at the same time. The widget/ad looks pretty good to and is easy to setup:
Another very interesting cool feature is how easy it is to change the look and feel of your ads. I have never seen so many options for an ad unit.
I could go with 1 large image
Or Small Images:
or just plain text only:
and also the ability to remove the footer and header of the ad also exists:
As far as choosing offers the ability to change between them is a pretty easy option:
So now we will have to see how it does money wise. The reporting looks pretty good but I just started using it today (and not really on any sites yet) so I will have to do a follow up on that. Revresponse is owned by a company called Netline who is no stranger to ecommerce. Looks pretty good for only running 1 month. I look for big things from Revresponse in the future.
So anyone using revresponse that has any other comments?
