New Affiliate Network

There is a new affiliate network on the scene, at least new to me, that looks quite interesting. I saw the PepperJam network on ProBlogger the other day and decided to give it a try. Not only because they promised a $10 sign on bonus, but because they also have some excellent advertisers. Some of those include 1&1 web hosting, Angie’s List, Cartoon Network, Vista Print, and a lot more. Not just advertisers, but advertisers that I know people use and are interested in.

The sign up process was very easy and the response times from them have been excellent – especially since this all was done over the 4th of July holiday weekend. The site is very easy to use also. If this early exposure to them is any indication, I think they will do quite well.

I am still not totally sure about running ads on this site, but I have other commercial oriented sites that have ads on them and those ads are producing. I will let you know how PepperJam works out. If you are currently using them, I would love to hear your thoughts about them and any results you are willing to share.
