    Exclamation - Rev Share Vs CPM -
    Been working in the e-commerce industry since 2006 and the same question pops over and over, Rev Share or CPM?

    I believe Rev share is the only way to ensure cooperation from both parts, the merchant and the affiliate...

    Would like to know what do you think about it.

    I think each product/niche is different.

    For some sites, I promote products with a short sales cycle and I love rev shares on those sites.

    On sites with products or services that have a longer sales cycle, I prefer CPM or per click ads.

    Sounds interesting, I was thinking about the best option to get both parts to work.

    Thanks for the opinion.

    When I see Revshare or CPM from a company that pushes ads such as technorati media or tribalfusion for example

    Regardless if you do Revshare or CPM you still are getting paid by CPM just if you go Revshare you runt he risk of making less if you don't show a lot of ads and you might make a lot more than regular CPM if you do.

    When you do revshare I think they make tiers and you share rev that way. Because you are actually sharing the revenue they made from selling the ad space.

    Atleast thats how it was explained to me when they suggested I go from CPM to revshare.
