The Escalate Network is a popular affiliate program for many bloggers- especially within the couponing and mommy review and giveaway niches. This affiliate program was recommended to me by members of a blogging group and several of the members have given very positive reviews.
I have just recently joined Escalate Network so I have not met the minimum payment threshold of $25.
Earning Money with Escalate Network
They provide several nice buttons linked with your affiliate ID to let your readers know that you are a member of the Escalate Network. You get paid for referring new members if they are approved. An example is below:
Because I run more than one blog, I have joined several affiliate programs. Escalate Network stands out as one of the best because my affiliate manager sends email updates letting me know how to incorporate new links. It helps a lot to catch deals that I should be posting based on what my audience may like to be informed about.
Their earnings analysis report details about clicks and conversions by hour, day, week, month, and all time. There are also options for reporting on offers, conversions, sources, and referrals.
Partner Companies of Escalate Network
Companies that work with Escalate Network are mostly related to deals, couponing, and survey sites. So this is the only limitation with using them for your affiliate link. Unless this is your niche, there is not much outside of these. One of the most popular affiliate links is available through the coupon widget, a rotating list of printable coupons on Coupons.com. If you are a couponer, you cannot print coupons through this widget. However, you can use Swagbucks and get paid for printing and redeeming coupons. I use Swagbucks to get free Amazon gift cards.
Tips for Getting Approved for Escalate Network
With most affiliate programs, you will need to go through an approval process. Generally your blog should be at least 3 months old and show active posting with solid content. Their affiliate program prides itself in accepting bloggers that show integrity with their blogging. Although I was approved when my blog was roughly a month old, I’ve talked to several other bloggers that had to reapply multiple times before they were approved.
I hope that you will explore Escalate Network for an option for monetizing your blog.
