Q: Our company is looking to hire a company to help us recruit new super affiliates. We were looking at CJ, but after reading a ton of negative reviews online, we are back to ground zero. Can you recommend a trustworthy company to help us recruit affiliates?
A: I haven’t seen any reviews regarding the performance of Commission Junction in recruiting affiliates.
Not knowing the source of the reviews you read, I’d have to say to take them with a grain of salt and encourage you to have your own conversation with CJ about their pricing and services.
Also, get in touch with outsourced program managers to find out what they can do for you.
Syntryx offers affiliate recruiting services, as well as their service if you want to identify and contact the top players on your own.
If you decide to keep it in-house, there are some affiliate recruiting tools I like, such as ARELIS, Internet Success Spider, and Link Capture.
