Azoogle CPA Network
The Sign Up Process
The first thing that struck me about Azoogle was that after filling out their application, because I have private registration on a few of my websites, I was asked to provide proof that those websites did, in fact, belong to me. I emailed them a screen shot from my registrar, waited a week, and then received my welcome letter. In my mind, this application scrutiny, is a very good thing, as it means that I will not be competing against spammers and the webmasters that got rejected are also less competition that I have to worry about.
Once I was in, I had to mail them a W2 form in order to get paid and then set up my ACH to get direct deposit.
Affiliate Support & Interface
Navigating Azoogle interface is a breeze, it's very straight forward, you can specify different criteria to search for sponsors and then sort by whatever column you want. Very Nice.
Once I started pushing a few sponsors, my Affiliate Manager called me. This was a first. I spoke with my manager several times on the phone since.
This is where Azoogle shines. The Affiliate Manager support is really outstanding. When an offer was having tracking issues, my manager got me credit for my traffic. When I had questions, my manager answered them answer fast. The 1 on 1 support is something I have not experienced before.
Each sponsor has a hashed url, much like CJ, and it's fairly short. It's nice because the devious surfer won't be able to change parameters and get around you not getting credit for the referral.
One issue that I did run in to was that sponsors have an expiration date. And when a sponsor expired, I did not receive a notification. My traffic to that sponsor was redirected to a similar company, still giving me credit, but really, I should have stopped the traffic.
Other than that, things are pretty straight forward.
Offers & Offer Payout
Azoogle's wide selection of offers should fit well with everyone's website. They have offers that pay per email address, per 1 page submit that do and do not require credit card information, and per 2 or more page offers that do and do not require credit card information. And these offer payouts can be seen across numerous offer categories: dating, payday loans, pc software, etc etc.
The reason for the 4/5 rating for Payments Per Offers is that I've seen Hydra Network pay more for the same offer. But after emailing my affiliate manager I was able to get a matching offer from Azoogle, and that's nice.
I highly recommend Azoogle.
