This review is sponsored by LeadsMarket.
I usually shy away from reviewing or associating myself to any ‘payday loan’ related topics but when Leads Market approached me and showed me some press links and resources to their site, I decided that it wouldn’t be really bad to do a review for them considering they are an affiliate program and that I have been ‘sort of’ blogging into that space with this blog for quite some time.
Leads Market is a ‘new’ affiliate network that seems to be focusing more on payday loan offers. Their website, on first glimpse, suggests that they are a fully fledged affiliate network. They state in their homepage that they have other offers as well such as dating, mortgages, flowers, etc., however, some quick browsing would reveal that they seem to be more functioning as a payday loan affiliate program and nothing else at the moment.
Also if you go to their website, the title of their main page is ‘The Best Affiliate Internet Marketing Program’ which sounds like a bit vague to me since it seems to be there just to target a very broad keyword. The design of their entire website, while its clean and simple, looks somewhat generic to me. On the good side, it does present some good materials on their homepage and they also have an FAQ where you can read stuff to know more about them. Here’s a good look on their site:
Overall, the site looks somehow not complete yet, as they seem to be still working out on some other stuff at the moment. And that’s why they are primarily a payday loan affiliate program for now as I understand.
Benefits & Exclusivity
Just like every other affiliate network, they’re presenting some benefits and exclusivity in their affiliate network. One of those is getting direct exclusive offers from them. Leads Market runs offers that are ONLY available to them and nowhere else. As an affiliate, this is a good benefit since there would be less competition considering the specific offer you’re promoting is not that saturated yet.
Another benefit that they are promoting is the commissions. Leads Market claims that their affiliates get a ‘lion’s share of commission’. This is due to the fact that they are an advertiser themselves, not middle-man which most of the affiliate networks are. They also do what most networks do which is providing their top affiliates with payout bonuses per month.
Speaking of payouts, Leads Market has the standard NET 30 payout which means you’ll have to wait 30 more days from the end of the Calendar month. This is a bit long if you ask me however, you can structure a more flexible payout terms with them if you are one of their top affiliates. Payments are made via check, Direct deposit, PayPal, Payoneer and PayQuicker.
Lastly, just like other networks, they do provide top-notch support and good technology (e.g. tracking, creatives, etc.). Communication with your affiliate manager is very very important as every affiliate knows. The success of the affiliate somehow depends on the quality of the affiliate manager that he has. And with that, support plays a really really vital role for this. Hopefully LeadsMarket has experienced affiliate managers and dedicated support team to help you out on this.
I don’t have any first hand experience with Leads Market myself since I just recently signed up, and therefore I cannot really make any personal recommendations myself on whether they’re worth it or not. As I mentioned, they are relatively new in the space and do not seem to be that popular yet. A quick search for Leads Market will not even yield that much results yet for them.
While I may not be recommending them yet, I would highly highly suggest you to at least check them out, and perhaps signup and see if the offers are enticing enough for you to stay. Payday loans are usually high paying offers which are not that hard to promote considering that its mostly cost per lead and that the consumer just need to input some stuff and meet some minimal requirements in order for them to qualify as a lead. However, payday loans are also a bit regulated and there used to be and still there are lots of shady offers existing in the vertical. That would be a pretty good challenge for Leads Market to take in this regard since they are primarily a payday loan affiliate program.
