Search Multiple Affiliate Networks with Jounce

Affiliate marketing is quickly becoming one of the most popular ways to make money on the Internet, but it can be a complex and confusing endeavor. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could streamline the process, if only a little?

Making its official debut just recently at Affiliate Summit East in New York, Jounce is basically a specialized search engine for all the affiliate marketers in the audience. In this review, we’ll take a look at what it does, how it works, and why you should care.

What Is Jounce?

When you arrive at the main homepage for Jounce, you are shown a rather familiar search bar. However, you are sifting through the entirety of the Internet; instead, you are looking specifically for affiliate offers.

Rather than logging into each of your individual accounts with the various affiliate networks, you can search across all of them through a single, unified interface. After you put in a search term, you will be shown a range of affiliate offers across multiple networks.

From this list, you can see exactly which network is currently providing the offer, how much is the cost to the site visitor, what your commission rate will be, and so on. Here is a brief video demonstrating how Jounce works. You can also check the site tour for more information.

The tagline is preaching a little bit to the choir, saying that we recommend stuff to our friends and family anyways, so we should get paid for it too. Even so, the core concept behind Jounce looks very promising.

If you want to be more efficient with your “performance marketing,” Jounce looks like it could be quite useful.

The Typical Search Results Page

To give Jounce a quick test run, I searched for affiliate offers related to keyword phrase “make money blogging.” The search results are displayed below.

This results page is notable for several reasons. First, you are given the thumbnail image of the product being promoted, so you might already recognize some of these items. You are naturally also given its name and a brief description, as well as the network, the price and your cut.

Along the left sidebar, you can refine your search results further by selecting specific tags, network names, advertiser names, commission type, currency, and image availability. You’ll also notice that you can sort through the results based on a variety of criteria too, including price, your cut, and EPC.

The Single Product Page

Going one mouse click further, you can get the product details for any single item. This page provides you with much the same information as the search results page.

The information is presented in a relatively easy to understand manner, including all the details about payment threshold, offer type, weekly and monthly EPC, your cut, number of tiers, and so on. You can click through to see the product sales page as well.

When you click on the arrow next to the network, you are shown the ability to join that network immediately. That’s probably a big part of the monetization plan for Jounce, as many of these networks have referral programs.

What’s interesting is that while you can use the search for free and without an account, signing up with Jounce lets you access your affiliate links right from within the Jounce interface. And this is the real power of Jounce, since it means that you don’t have to log into your individual affiliate networks to get your hop links.

Should You Affiliate with Jounce?

One of the biggest reasons why you would want to participate in affiliate marketing and passive income streams in the first place is that it has the potential of offering you greater time freedom. Jounce is one such tool that can aid you in that effort.

I appreciate the relatively simple and straightforward interface, as well as the robust option sets for sifting through the search results. I’m sure they’ll be adding more and more networks as Jounce grows and matures, making it an even more powerful tool for all the affiliate marketers in the audience. Since it’s free to use, you really have nothing to lose.

    Looks good but the affiliate guys will hate you for not promoting Affbuzz instead!!!

      I just checked out Jounce and It looks like an affiliate news aggregator is only one small aspect of the Jounce.com platform. Even though this is the case, I’m able to favorite the blogs that I read and create a custom reader within my profile.

      Testing for 10 minutes and Affbuzz clearly has not comparison to this platform

        I totally agree with you Zach 😉

    This looks an interesting service, I might just give this a try out.
    Thanks for the post Michael

    1. I agree that Michael did a good review of this.

      There may be a place for this Jounce service and I’ll have a closer look.

      1. You two did well spotting that John had not written this one. I had to go and search for the author’s name and finally found it at the top.

        1. Michael usually does reviews for John.

          It’s always a good idea to check who wrote the post. Besides John it can be Michael or really anyone if it is a guest post.

  3. Hi,

    Well Jounce looks good. I mean it could save you a ton of time if you use multiple affiliate networks.

    I currently use only clickbank, but when I do want to enter into more affiliate networks, I’ll give Jounce a shot.

  4. Minipimer says:

    Hey, it’s sounds pretty good, I going to try it right now!

  5. Thanks for this, did not even know about anything so nice like that, Jounce seems to work!

  6. d3so says:

    Definitely a useful service. It is a hassle logging in to multiple accounts just to compare offers. But I have no need as I’m devoted to one network right now.

    1. Dino Vedo says:

      You really shouldn’t be! I mean stick with the major players but lots of ad networks have slightly different payouts for the same offers.

      Sure 10 to 20 cents isnt a lot, but when your getting over 100 leads or more a day it can make a huge difference!

      1. PPC Ian says:

        Dino makes a great point! Use those extra 10-20 cents to bid higher (if you’re doing PPC) and you could drive substantially more volume since CPCs are linear but traffic by position is exponential.

  7. Mark says:

    So far, Jounce is pretty weak on their offer database. For a true look across the CPA networks, Offervault.com has it covered.

  8. Seems like a really useful service. Will go and check it out. Thanks for sharing.

  9. One stop shop for all best deal in affiliate offers, good idea. Will work for sure

  10. ChrisB says:

    What the H*LL this is crazy awesome! So basically Jounce is Google, but exclusively for affiliate marketing 🙂

    If this is BETA i’m excited to see what’s to come

  11. Thanks for making me aware of this site. Looks worthy of a closer look. I shall study it tomorrow when I have more time…..

  12. Jakie says:

    I created a profile and realized this could basically be the first “social network” for affiliate marketers! Happy this is a Free service.. thanks for reviewing this john

  13. Sue McDonald says:

    This looks absolutely great and it looks easy to use. You will be able to find affiliates much easier. I will go and read more about it.

  14. I always appreciate tools to make my life easier. Jounce looks cool…thanks!

  15. Now that sounds finally like a search engine worth book marking! Thanks Michael, SY

  16. Cheryl Jones says:

    Hi, I really appreciate this information about Jounce. I have not gotten in affiliate marketing much yet, and part of the reason is it seems so…disorganized…for me to keep up with all the links…I like order in anything I do and this Jounce seems like it might give that to me. Thanks for the post. I’ll check into it.

  17. Michael says:

    Looks great. How do you get into a summit like this? I’d like to check one out sometime.

  18. borsa says:

    thanks for reviewing this john

    1. er, Michael actually – just thought I’d try to beat our old friend “Email List Building” to this one 😉

  19. PPC Ian says:

    It definitely saves time when you only have to log into one system versus multiple. On a corporate level, this is where systems like Marin Software really shine!

  20. Bryan says:

    Awesome post! I’m curious to see how it integrate earnings from various programs but if it works as well as it sounds, it’s going to be an awesome tool to use & recommend.

  21. John says:

    Great ; I am using Offevault for a while but may check this site soon.

  22. SEO Cat says:

    Greta, I’m going to start using jounce rightn now, it’s sounds pretty good and, for what I have seen, fast updated 😀

  23. Pretty cool search service. I am a member of OfferVault which has direct information about offers from tens of affiliate networks. You should take a look there too.

  24. Ann says:

    Hi Michael and and all others who have written here,

    Did you actually try to test Jounce on specific products? After reading this post, I went over and did just that.

    I have a product for which I have an affiliate program on e-junkie. It DOES exist 😉 (proof: http://www.e-junkie.com/shop/product/439653.php?section=affiliates), but it does not show up on the jounce search (I tried parrot, clicker, pets and the whole title).

    So somehow there seems to be a bug. Contact info to report problems is not given either. So one has to leave a comment in the feedback form where they already say they won’t answer. 🙁 (Maybe there is a contact field somewhere, but I don’t feel like digging around for it for an extended amount of time).

    Did any of you tested it on products you try to market?

    Ann.
