Finding out how to make money blogging is a lot easier said than done. When I first started blogging, I signed up for a few affiliate programs and just waited for the money to start pouring it. If I had stuck with many of the programs that I started with, I am sure that I would still be waiting. I tried a number of different affiliate programs including Flex Offers. So, did FlexOffers work or me?
FlexOffers is an affiliate marketing network that connects content publishers with advertisers. You make money from your website when you promote products and services through the FlexOffers.com affiliate marketing network. You will display ads in your site via banners and text links.
Publishers apply to different affiliate programs for the opportunity to sell a manufacturer’s products. It’s a lot like a smaller version of Commission Junction. I have already discussed my lack of success with CJ in my Commission Junction review.
I ran FlexOffers ads on my site after I had been blogging for a couple of months. The ads stayed on my site for about 4 months total. My click through rate was incredibly high which shows that my site’s readers were really interested in the advertisers products. When it came time to buy the products however, they weren’t interested. My conversion rate with FlexOffers was abysmal. It was barely above 1%.
I did have success with one particular affiliate product at FlexOffers. It was a Green Dot Prepaid MasterCard. A few of my site’s readers did sign up for this offer. The payout was good. I earned $8.95 for each card that someone signed up for. That was ood money back then because I wasn’t making much income from my blog.
- FlexOffers has a lot of product offerings. Many of their advertisers are listed on Commission Junction as well.
- It’s easy to get your website approved by FlexOffers.
- You get your own affiliate manager to help you with any questions.
- The payouts are reasonable.
- You will get denied for a lot of great offers. I was continually denied for lots of offers that I was interested in. Most of the deals that I was approved for were new advertisers with crappy products.
- There are only 300 campaigns. Commission Junction and other affiliate programs have way more offerings.
If you are new to blogging and aren’t making any money then FlexOffers is worth a try. It’s a decent affiliate company and you can potentially earn a few bucks a month. If you are an established blogger then stay away. You can do a lot better than FlexOffers.
