What is an affiliate?
An affiliate (or publisher) is a person or company which sends visitors to a merchant's website in exchange for commissions.

Does it cost anything to be an affiliate?
No. An affiliate account with Tag Junction is absolutely FREE. There are no set up costs and no maintenance fees. However, to be approved, you will need an active website. First step is to sign up here. An affiliate manager will review your website for appropriate content, so we can understand how you intend to advertise our sponsors. We accept publishers from all countries.

What is CPA Marketing?
CPA stands for Cost Per Action. Unlike other marketing models where an advertiser pays for every surfer seeing their ad (CPM) or clicking on their ad (CPC), an advertiser under the CPA model pays only when a specific action is taken on their website. The advertiser defines this action in advance and only pays when that action is taken. The advertiser action can be as simple as filling out a form on their website or as complex as a multi-page sign-up ending with a purchase through credit card. Generally speaking, the more involved the action, the higher a publisher would expect to be paid for generating it.

What role does Tag Junction.com play in online advertising?
Publishers seek to generate advertising revenue from their websites and mailings lists but often lack in time or size to deal directly with multiple large sponsors. On the flipside, advertisers want traffic to generate sales and leads for their websites without the commitment of dealing with hundreds of individual publishers. Tag Junction.com acts as a single point of contact for advertisers and publishers, acting as a trusted source for both sides. Publishers benefit from having access to hundreds of advertising campaigns and receiving a single aggregated “always on time” commission payment from Tag Junction. Advertisers benefit by having their CPA campaigns made available to thousands of publishers without having to recruit or maintain a single one.

What technical skills do Affiliates need to use Tag Junction?
There are no special skills required. Affiliates need to be able to copy and paste HTML code and place it accurately within the code of a Web page or within an email.

Do I need software to run my Affiliate Program?
No. Tag Junction has a built-in infrastructure that does not require any software to be installed. The merchant and affiliate web-based interface can be accessed with one username and password. When features are added, they are seamlessly integrated and Tag Junction members will have instant access to all the latest features.

Can I choose any Merchant to promote on my site?
Affiliates may choose any campaign made available to them through the Affiliate program interface.

How often do affiliates get paid commission?
Affiliates are paid on a montly basis. We require a minimum balance of $10 before we issue a payment via PayPal. To issue payments via Wire Transfer the minimum balance is $1000. If you don't reach this level, your earnings will roll over to the subsequent months until you reach the minimum required balance.

My publisher account was terminated but I want to plead my case. What should I do?
In most cases, by the time you've received the termination email, it's too late. Our compliance department monitors traffic/leads constantly and action is swift when a problem is found. Publishers are generally told when a minor problem is found and given the opportunity to make corrections. Major problems usually result in immediate account termination. If you want to plead your case, send a reply to the compliance email you received. Your best bet is to admit wrongdoing, accept the reversal of your leads/sales and ask permission to try again. In the rare circumstance that a publisher is wrongly terminated from the network, they should reply to the compliance email and politely describe the problem and why they feel they are innocent. No payment will be issued to a terminated account.

What kind of advertising campaigns see the best results on Tag Junction?
There is no specific campaign type which represents the bulk of our traffic. We generate leads and sales for clients across multiple genres including dating, financial, education, surveys, health, international, mobile, etc. Generally speaking, we tend to stick with form-fill style lead generation or trial-based sale campaigns because these are the kinds of ad campaigns our publishers like best.

Who will run my ad, where will the traffic come from?
That's a little difficult to predict as Tag Junction has many publishers in the network and they selectively choose the ads they want to run themselves. A successful ad campaign might see traffic from hundreds of publishers across multiple traffic types such as banner placements, email marketing, search engines, social media and others. An advertiser can however specify in advance whether they want to exclude certain types of traffic, like search engine or social network traffic.

Do I get contact with the publishers running my ads?
There is no direct contact between publishers and advertisers. All contact goes through the network. Publishers come to Tag Junction specifically for the benefit of having a single contact point for multiple sponsorship opportunities.

How does tracking work?
Tag Junction uses cookies and pixels to track actions. We provide the advertiser with a tracking pixel to place on the page where they declare an action as valid and should be paid for. This pixel, combined with the cookie generated when the surfer clicks the campaign link, generates a lead in our system.

How much volume can you do on my campaign?
We don't predict traffic volumes on potential campaigns. There are simply too many unknown factors to give a proper estimate. Much depends on the conversion of the campaign, the target countries and demographics, the decided upon CPA rate versus competitive campaigns and the final mix of publishers who decide to pick up any given campaign. Some campaigns can see hundreds of thousands of leads while others struggle to get hundreds per month.

What can we do to ensure we get quality leads?
Tag Junction puts potential publishers through a quality assurance and fraud check before we allow them into the network. This helps reduce the occurrence fraud and bad leads, but does not eliminate it. Advertisers must also work at monitoring data and reporting problems.

Are your Merchants working exclusively with Tag Junction?
While there are many merchants that use Tag Junction exclusively, not all do. However, Tag Junction works closely with merchants to ensure the highest payout in the industry.
