    Is there at least 1 point in which LS is better than CJ ?

    Talking about the network, not merchants, and not personal and subjetive apreciations like "I earned more in LS"

    It's easier to manage your bank account as there is less in it as they kindly hang on to alot of your earnings for you.

    The real advantage to me personally is that CJ has some specialty merchants I just can't find at the other big networks.

    Regular payments is also a very imporant thing.

    Of course there'd probably be at least one point better, but how significant a point?

    LinkShare has some big merchants CJ doesn't have. I've waited for some of these merchants to crossover to CJ, but it rarely happens.

    Alot of brand awareness merchants are obviously more likely to be attracted to LinkShare and BeFree over CJ.

    Alot of newbies start out with LinkShare, as I did. The brand awareness merchants (of which Disney is one) took advantage of me back then.

    CJ is more about actual sales (which is even more evident by recent contract changes being discussed in this forum).

    If there are no significant points showing LS better than CJ...I have a feeling that may change in the not too distant future. If not LinkShare, then BeFree, Shareasale, or someone.

    Just as the search engines are finally feeling the need to mimic Google, it will happen one day. Then ask your question.

    Things are changing for affiliates. The little affiliates are going belly up. CJ realizes this and wants to clear their database of them.

    LinkShare loves the little affiliates, CJ not so much. Is this a point better?

    I don't have to go to the bank as much with Linkshare. Of course I could just use direct deposit with CJ to save me the trip, but I like to see an actual check.

    Also, with Linkshare I don't have to worry about losing the check. Once again if I used CJ direct deposit this would not be a problem with CJ either.

    Linkshare has done more to teach me what not to do. For instance, promoting Linkshare merchants.

    Linkshare has some of my favorite affiliate programs from the past. I used to make a lot of money with art.com, and now they are with Linkshare. Of course, now they don't make any money for me. Funny how that works.

    Reporting.

    Better merchants. Sure, some duds, but, some real "gems"... And not a lot of the crap you see at cj.

    And yes, "I earned more in LS" ...

    Merchants: Do you realize that some of your affiliates are being paid commission on sales which you have paid for via PPC, offline advertising, and your targeted mailings?

    The only reason a publisher should use linkshare over Cj is the merchants and advertisers.
    CJ has a lot of advertisers but Befree has some they don't.

    Other than that, the lack of consolidated payments and higher minimum payouts for some advertisers really makes linkshare the network to use on a merchant by merchant basis rather than as a network.

    With CJ you find things that will work and link to it knowing you will receive payment for anything you earn. With Linkshare you find programs you feel confident you can reach the minimums with and work harder with them.

    If you like datafeed driven websites, LS still has reporting sales at the item level, so you know what actually sold... CJ just took that gem away.
