I notice top cash back now lets you add a referral link to individual retailers. Do you know if any one has any success with it.

Oh right that's neat

how does it work then if someone signs up to your link but purchases something else?

I only spotted it the other day. It is under the refer a friend page. I think the link is to the merchant not the product. If they decide to join top cash back themselves they get the discount but you get the referral bonus. You don't have to jump through any hoops to join.

hmm Interesting idea. I know @The Reverend promoted TCB a fair bit!

Have you got any further with MediaVine?

Everyone and their dog seems to be slowing their site down with their ads at the moment lol

Have you look at other networks you can easily use

DoubleClick, Infolinks, RevenueHits, Intellinks

There's a boatload of other ones you can use out there
Hi Jon

I've not. I don't get the traffic for my 'general' content to start joining aff networks. I need to get more generalised (or targeted, depending on how you think about it) content on there.

2020 - that'll be my year!

:D

I can see it clearly!

(I'm here all week, try the veal)

TCB has always allowed you to do that.

Its Quidco that doesnt.
I still maintain the easiest way to get money out of TCB / Quidco is to do it via AWIN where you are just paid per signup regardless of what the user does when they are signed up

The less steps the user has to take before we are paid the better in affiliate marketing!

I was kicked off the Awin for TCB and they haven't accepted me back.

I may well look to change my engagement with TCB and Quidco

Especially now with Quidco's £1 monthly charge for premium.

Do you think the £1 monthly charge from Quidco is a negative? Is it not less than TCB £5 premium?

I do. I am also not sure if the positives will outweight it.

What will be interesting is whether they take it from referral schemes or bonuses - so far they haven't.

Anyway, TCB is always my Boo, Quidco was just a freaky side chick.....

(don't listen to him, Quidco, you knows I loves you)

Yeah i've also been a TCB Guy from the start. Affiliate marketing aside, their refer a friend scheme was much more generous and VERY easy to promote!

As we have been speaking.

I've got £15 cashed out from Quidco and £20 confirmed from TCB from RAF. So something is working.

Quidco they came out of no-where and within a week of showing as tracked they've paid out.
TopCashback it takes FOREVER to actually get to the point when they can be cashed out.

I know it isn't millions but it is proper 'passive'.

And If I could get £50 a month in RAFs then I'd be laughing.
Same with the £70 amaz affs last month.
Just need to keep building and get all those small amounts to become one big large amount!

:D

Just going through my Shomos stuff and see that Quidco are on awin. I went to add them but then saw I was already on their program.

Looks like I've de-activated my awin link at some point on my blog. Put it back on - lets see what happens.
