In my 15 years of affiliate marketing I have known many top affiliates that had a “hot moment”. People that have made up to 7 figures a month. I would say 50% of them are broke, 45% are still affiliates, and about 5% of them make a run at their own business. Businesses of all sorts. Some start an offer and even some have started brick and mortar companies.
But there is that 1%… or probably less than 1%… that took what they learned by being a top affiliate and created their own networks. People like Eli Aloisi, Scott Richter, George Avery, and Alexander Bachmann.
Despite being only 17, Alexander took his experience from being a top affiliate and decided to not only make his own affiliate network, but build it to have all the features the current platforms were lacking.
Prior to admitad, Bachmann contributed by working for Zanox & Affilinet as a publisher. These platforms are considered to be the European affiliate marketing giants. Instead of going head-to-head with Zanox, Bachmann discovered a gap in the Russian market in the niche of Cost Per Acquisition (CPA) affiliate marketing.
“I decided not to reinvent the wheel, I just wanted to improve the existing platforms, and excel at customer service” says Alexander.
After the surging it success of admitad he decided to take it globally, establishing 6 offices across the globe and will be continuing to grow their marketshare, including Asian region. Truly making them the global leader as an affiliate network.
I love stories like this.
Despite the large size of the company it still sticks to Alexanders affiliate roots of catering to the needs of affiliates and publishers by offering leading industry features like:
- A global one stop place for all clients world wide. This is huge and gives them a giant edge over affiliate networks let alone world wide affiliate networks.
- For advertisers there is no initial cost of entry and also no extra cost to promote the offers to top affiliates. This is because admitad vets all advertisers to make sure they have the right offer and great payouts for their affiliates.
- admitad has a very transparent system and is known for paying affiliates before they even get paid from the offer owner / advertiser.
- A very impressive in house developed platform which allows them to quickly adapt as offers, affiliate needs, and tracking features evolve. They always have cutting edge features and do not have to wait for the “network in a box” platforms.
If you are an affiliate / publisher looking for a network with global top paying offers, than I highly recommend admitad.
Another thing that I really like is that even though they have a very large company with a global presence, their CEO, Alexander Bachmann, still plans a hands on role where there is no job beneath him. Yes, obviously he leads the company as the chief executive officer but because of his past as a top affiliate, will also works a lot with advertisers and affiliates.
With Mr. Bachmann at the helm admitad has grown by leaps and bounds. His employees cant speak highly enough about him as well as affiliates. We have several friends in common on Facebook and I enjoy his posts (the ones I can make out in english lol).
Also under Alexander Bachmann’s leadership he established European “must attend” events. There is one coming up in September that you can’t miss.
