Neverblue Ads: An Affiliate Marketing Marketplace

John has always emphasized that you shouldn’t put all your eggs in one basket, and this is especially true when it comes to monetizing your website or blog. Too many people rely solely on Adsense, but as you may already know, one of the fastest emerging ways to make money online is through affiliate marketing.

You can hunt down some of these deals yourself, but why do the legwork when NeverblueAds is around to do it for you? This has the potential of being a real moneymaker! Oh, and if you’re wondering about that link, it’s an affiliate one too. The person who ordered up this ReviewMe may be just as evil as John! 😈

Affiliate Marketing Made Easy

With so many different affiliate deals out there to consider, it can be pretty hard to decide which deal would perform the best on your website. It can also be difficult to find those elusive diamonds in the rough, so to speak, that pay the big bucks for each referral. NeverblueAds makes this a heck of a lot easier, because they act as an intermediary between the affiliate (that’s you) and the advertiser.

After you sign up for an account, you gain access to a marketplace filled with literally hundreds of different affiliate deals, spanning just about every topic area imaginable. They’ve got automotive affiliate campaigns, debt relief, education, beauty, technology, entertainment, business opportunities, and more.

Under each category is a list of the different affiliate campaigns that are available. For each of these, you’re shown how much it pays, as well as an indication of network earnings. Those little green squares are probably the most useful, because they highlight the affiliate marketing opportunities that have been the most lucrative.

Find the Affiliate Marketing Deal That Works For You

For each individual affiliate marketing campaign, you’re told what kinds of promotions are allowed (web, email, search, and/or downloadable software), what’s needed for a conversion, and what countries are allowed. (Many deals are for the United States only, so if you’re not American, make sure you check that section.) Navigating through the tabs, you can grab the “creatives” for a variety of banners, email messages, paid search, and so forth. Yes, even those annoying flashing banners.

Another feature that makes all this affiliate marketing so easy is that you don’t need to sign up with each of the affiliate advertisers individually. You just sign up once with NeverblueAds and offer the deals through them.

To further streamline the process, there are also quicklinks within the affiliate dashboard (which is a little clunky to navigate) that will direct you to the ten newest campaigns, the top ten web promotions campaigns, etc. Naturally, you get all sorts of reports, stats, and tools at your disposal too.

How Do I Sign Up?

The initial sign-up process is pretty much like every other ad network. You input your pertinent personal information — name, address, phone number — as well as information about your website. This is where you also tell them what kinds of deals interest you the most, and whether you’ll be doing the affiliating primarily through web publishing (banners), through email (newsletters), or whatever.

And then, you wait to be approved.

There don’t appear to be any explicit criteria, but before I got my account approved, I got a phone call from a NeverblueAds representative (they’re based in Victoria, BC, Canada) confirming my information, how long my site has been live, and what affiliate marketing I have tried in the past. After logging into my account, I noticed that I was assigned a specific “affiliate manager”, complete with cell number, direct line, email address, and fax number. My own personal contact at NeverblueAds… this is a very nice touch that is usually only reserved for dot com moguls like John.

I plan on giving NeverblueAds a whirl on my own blog and seeing how it compares to some of the other more conventional ad networks. Seems like a potentially good way to make money online.

    I’ll have to book mark this site for when we decide to monetize our blog! 🙂

  2. Once again, this is a very helpful post, Michael. As you’ve mentioned yourself, it seems to be a really promising money-making tool, even for us aspiring dot com moguls. 😎

    See, pay-per-post or reviewme posts (i think this is one) arent’ all bad. I don’t see why so many people are uptight and bitter and so offended (as if some holy sanctuary has been raped) when big bloggers write for money.

    Money drives things. And a lot of the review-me posts by Johnchow.com has introduced me to great marketing products I would never have imagined existed.

    it’s another great example how money pushes knowledge through to people in an unintrusive way. i prefer this over spam emails trying to sell me Cialis.

    1. Marc says:

      I completely agree Jeff. I’ve found that a lot of people hate things for the same reason people climb Everest. Because it’s there.

    2. Dave says:

      I agree Jeff, the problem is everyone has been psychologically conditioned to believe that everything on the Internet should be free and altruistic.

      Webmasters of popular sites shouldn’t have any advertising and just cover the server costs themselves, out of pocket.

      It’s no different than watching TV, sure commercials are annoying but without them there would be no show to watch!

      1. UberDan says:

        In the UK we have to pay a TV license for the pleasure of watching TV. And for that you get two advert free channels. How lucky are we! 😈

    Lol I kept on getting “Error: Terms is a required field and needs to be checked” when trying to sign up. Eventually I figured out that it wouldn’t let me get passed the first page unless I had the Terms and Conditions window open at the same time I clicked Next. Kind of bizarre…

    1. Dave says:

      Yeah that is very odd.

  5. Marc says:

    Let me get this straight, the person who requested the review requested it with an affiliate link? Absolute genius!

    1. UberDan says:

      Ahh just re-read the post, very clever. Wonder if he’ll get the ReviewMe price back through sign-ups?

  6. Sam says:

    My blog currently receives about 200 visitors a day, Am I eligible to apply ?

    @Article Writer : i can’t open the site your name points to, i get ‘denied’ message. But on the other hand, iam able to open it in a proxy. Did you restrict certain ip or some thing like that ?

  7. Sam says:

    I am sorry i mean @ Article Checker, or [moderator please correct that mistake] Thanks

  8. UberDan says:

    So if you can use all these affiliates through NeverBlue and don’t have to sign up to the affiliates directly are NeverBlueAds taking a %cut of all your earnings? How would you then go and check your earnings for your site, through NeverBlue? Forgive me if I’ve got this wrong, but to me this would be similar to putting all your eggs in one basket! 😕

    1. Michael Kwan says:

      In a nutshell, yes. But you’re not putting all your eggs in one basket, because you are essentially running affiliate deals for all sorts of different businesses. It would be the same as signing up with each of these companies individually (but with a lot less work).

      I’m still not encouraging you to ONLY run ads through Neverblue. You should be dabbling in other sources anyways, like Adsense, TLA, AuctionAds, Kontera, ReviewMe, and so on.

  9. Travis says:

    Hey John,sorry about the email. You don’t have to respond because I figured it out 10 minutes I sent it to you. Again sorry 😛
    -Travis

  10. RusPlaneta says:

    Yes, this is a helpful post.

    On a side note, Google thinks the site is about
    restaurants and bistros and supplies relevent ads to the home page. 😀

  11. Amanda says:

    Isn’t this essentially the same thing as commission junction?

    1. thesilly1 says:

      Seems that way….even has the green squares that CJ has…..

  12. thesilly1 says:

    I always find it strange that a site can be based in Victoria BC but then cater to the US market…..

    1. Michael Kwan says:

      Because the US is a much bigger market than Canada. I write for Mobile Magazine (the chief editor/owner lives in Victoria), but we cater to the US as well, writing about Verizon and T-Mobile much more often than Telus or Fido… for example.

  13. Man, and Google just release CPA 😈 ! We’ll see how this CJ, ClickBank, LinkShare, and big G handle each others (I favor big G, of course ;). Sometimes, it’s scary to ‘know’ how much Google know me more than me (nice sentence huh?)

  14. Paul. says:

    I think I’ll give this a try. I’ll be sure to sign up through your affilate link. 😈
