Vick Strizheus’ Affiliate Network Platform Evaluation

I’m writing this affiliate network platform evaluation in response to people who ask me all the time, “Vick, what’s the best affiliate network to get started with?”

It is Click Promise hands down because it’s so easy to get started. the application process is simple, and the affiliate network platform has a ton of tools to make it easy. A lot of people want to say that it’s because I’m affiliated with the network, but actually I’m not directly. My partner, Jason McClain, owns Click Promise.

The longer you’re involved with Internet marketing, you slowly begin to replace the products and services you use on a regular basis with your own that you’ve developed. This is what I refer to as the authoritative level of marketing. This is one of the areas that Jason and I are passionate about because it allows us to give our audience full service. Click Promise is a huge part of that.

Is It CPA, Affiliate Marketing, or What?

Some people consider Click Promise a Cost Per Action (CPA) network because many of the offers pay out based on sign ups rather than product sales. We do consider it to be an affiliate network because we do have many of our products available for promotion on the site. Anyway, the important part is that regardless of the type of offer, they all pay out well. Another reason that Click Promise is my favorite affiliate network.

How to Apply

Applying for Click Promise is easier than with most networks. Simply follow the link and fill out the form completely. It’s that simple. Many times, you will see how-to articles on the long process of applying for other affiliate network platforms.

People tend to have a couple of common problems as they are applying:

  1. They are presented with  log in page instead of a form
  2. They don’t know what to put in the company name and URL fields if they have neither

One thing to remember when you are applying to an affiliate network platform, they most likely aren’t that concerned with all of your information. They just make all of the fields required so they can ensure they have all of the information they need to get you started. So, things like your company name and URL can be ironed out later. Just because the fields are required doesn’t mean they are required to be eligible.

So the solutions here are simple. If all you see is a log in page when you go to apply at Click Promise, scroll down. The form is below the fold. If you don’t have a company name or website, simply fill out these fields as follows:

  • Company Name – Retype your name
  • URL – You can use anything here.,, or It really doesn’t matter. The information can be updated at a later time

How It Works

Once you are accepted, log into your affiliate account. Click Available Offers and click the Request Offer button next to any offers that interest you. None of this should take longer than 24 hours, so if you encounter a delay, make sure to contact support. Once you are approved for offers you’d like to promote, they will appear in your account under the My Offers tab. You then have the option of grabbing your affiliate link and/or using some of the creatives provided to promote your chosen product and start earning. Click Promise pays out monthly on the 15th of the following month. For example, your earnings for May 2016 would be paid out on June 15, 2016.

Wrap Up

Whether you are new to affiliate marketing or a seasoned veteran, Click Promise has something to offer you. I stand behind it fully as an affiliate network and as my preferred affiliate network platform. I’d love to hear from you in the comments about your experiences with this affiliate network.
