Clickbooth has Cribs, Affiliate.com has Cubes

written by John Chow on September 22, 2010


Before Clickbooth made their MTV Cribs style video of their new headquarters, Affiliate.com had a show call Cubes that featured the cubical of their employees. It was a great way to show what goes on in the life of an affiliate manager and see their working space. Unfortunately, Affiliate.com filmed only two episodes. Hopefully, they’ll make more in the future.

The first video features the cube of Jon Ringhofer, the senior affiliate manager. He’s been with the company for two years and did such a good job that Scott Richter (Affiliate.com fonder) bought him a new set of wheels as a gift for his two year anniversary. Yes, Affiliate.com treats their employees well. Even though Jon is the senior affiliate manager, he doesn’t get a private office. He gets a cube like every other affiliate manager. However, Jon’s cube is a corner cube!

The second video is the cube of Will Charland, a lowly affiliate manager who drives a 2001 Chevy Impala. While his cube isn’t as fancy as Jon’s, I found the video more enjoyable to watch. I got a good laugh out of it.

ClickBooth’s offices rock in comparison with these ones :)

PPC Ian September 22, 2010 at 10:38 pm

I must agree. I wonder if Affiliate.com will remodel their office after seeing the new Clickbooth office? Otherwise, some of those Affiliate.com employees may look for jobs at Clickbooth! :-)

I went to Azoogle’s office about a year ago in New York and they had a pretty cool office…I think John has some pictures of it here somewhere…

d3so September 23, 2010 at 2:00 am

Pretty soon all affiliate networks will compete with each other on who has the best office.

Alex Dumitru September 23, 2010 at 9:44 am

Yeah, but they should better compete on who takes the lower commission :)

Essays October 8, 2010 at 5:10 am

Best office or better network they have?

Abhik September 23, 2010 at 5:16 am

yeah!! have to say so after watching the clickbooth video.

Kris September 22, 2010 at 8:29 pm

Ummmm, I left the corporate world, so I would not have to work in cubicle.
Hope you laughed at these sheep, John.


PPC Ian September 22, 2010 at 10:33 pm

What a negative and misguided comment. Many people in the corporate world are there because they want to be. They are learning, making great money, and adding value to society. I’m a Director only 5 years out of Stanford. I own stock in NexTag and QuinStreet that has made me rich. This kind of leverage via private company stock is only possible in the corporate world.

College Scholarships September 22, 2010 at 10:49 pm

Good points Ian. I’m out of grad school for 3 years and making 6 figs…I would have to agree, I enjoy what I do and I get paid for it. So I can’t really complain.

Now this online gig…well, it’s more of a dream that will come to fruition as long as I chug away a little at a time…

Alex Dumitru September 23, 2010 at 9:46 am

You are right Ian, but there aren’t many like you, you know :)

Shally Martin September 23, 2010 at 9:21 pm

Yeah, and I think not everyone can get the opportunities as fast as you do Ian. Btw Kris comment is negative tho.

ZK @ Web Marketing Blog October 1, 2010 at 5:44 am

Well I think he should add that this is his approach only.

If he do not like corporate world life than this is ok … but you should mention in such way that this is your thoughts only.

College Scholarships September 22, 2010 at 10:47 pm

lol…some have to hang in the rat race a little longer before working for themselves…

d3so September 23, 2010 at 2:02 am

I would rather work in a cubicle than do any other type of “job”.

Abhik September 23, 2010 at 6:00 am

well.. it depends on your online income :)

Alex Dumitru September 23, 2010 at 9:46 am

That’s also true :)

Every kind of job is obviously valuable and needed because it serves people and fills a need.

To be putting down anyone who works anywhere is pretty ignorant.

College Scholarships September 22, 2010 at 10:43 pm

love the 2 year anniversary present…wish I still had my motorcycle…one Willie too many…

PPC Ian September 22, 2010 at 10:45 pm

Yeah, that’s quite the gift! The sign of a true rock star employee!

College Scholarships September 22, 2010 at 10:46 pm

or the sign of a great boss ;-)

Shally Martin September 23, 2010 at 9:29 pm

Well that’s the gift the boss can give to those who are loyal to the company. And I guess Jon has contribute a lot to the company itself.

Abhik September 24, 2010 at 11:39 pm

lol!! does he get much time out after maintaining this blog?

Irish Garden Home September 22, 2010 at 11:48 pm

There is a reason I don’t want to be part of the rat race, it is called cubicle!, better working from home than sitting in one of this cages. If I have to choose between money (yes, I read what Ian and others wrote about stocks etc) and freedom, I will -and have- always chose freedom, SY

d3so September 23, 2010 at 2:04 am

What do u do for a living? Are u already working from home?

I’d rather work in a cubicle than have a blue collar or minimum wage job.

Irish Garden Home September 24, 2010 at 1:35 am

Yes, I am working from home since several years, just google ‘hospitalera’ and you see what I do;-) I main do (stock) photography / illustration, blogging, online writing, niche websites and affiliate marketing, SY

Abhik September 23, 2010 at 5:19 am

Well.. not even that ‘cage’ is making money for you..

Irish Garden Home September 25, 2010 at 3:58 am

To whom are you referring, Abhik? SY

Abhik September 23, 2010 at 5:13 am

I prefer cabins than cubes.. :)

Vik Tantry September 23, 2010 at 6:17 am

I don’t think I would like to work in a little cubicle like that. I know they earn a lot of money but that means they also earn a lot of money for the company, so their working conditions should be as top notch as possible.
Clickbooth have the right idea, keep the workers happy and production goes up, they even had a slide lol.

I get that keeping costs as low as possible is a key factor for any business but not at the cost of losing any aspect of quality, and that includes the quality of working life so to speak for employees.

Shally Martin September 23, 2010 at 9:43 pm

What we saw in the video is not all part of affiliate.com there might be place which is a lot more better than CB. Can’t wait for the other videos from them.

Tom Wozniak September 23, 2010 at 8:05 am

Hey John – thanks for the Cubes shout out! We actually filmed one more episode featuring Jaz Pester before the series went on hiatus. You can check it out on our YouTube channel here – http://www.youtube.com/user/wwwaffiliatedotcom#p/a/u/0/178URkDF7qk

We do have plans for more videos in the future, so stay tuned!

Game Junkie September 23, 2010 at 8:59 am

Currently I am with out adequate ads on my new game review blog. Even though it has gotten some pretty good traction seeing as how I launched it less than 2 weeks ago and already have 17 fans. I’m wondering, if this company would deliver relevant gamer related or entertainment ads for my site. Quality game ads are hard to come by these days.

fas September 23, 2010 at 11:47 am

The CB one was better and more fun.

Backlinking Service October 2, 2010 at 7:50 pm

Scott Richter… there is a name I have not heard in a while. The company has changed names though.

As far as the car? Gotta hide you money somewhere.

And to be honest, all of the cubicles look bland. Then again that is compared to my home office setup.

Shally Martin September 23, 2010 at 9:15 pm

Both could be a good competition for them. :-)

Email List Building September 27, 2010 at 11:28 am

I think that they compete in every aspect already and since most of them are doing well it can only benefit the people who work there
