    Affiliate Marketing In CJ Drives $39.5 - $40.5 million
    Interesting article about Conversant the company that owns Commission Junction. They reported that the Affiliate marketing segment revenue was $42.5 million, an increase of 11% year-over-year (for the first quarter of 2014).

    I'm sure the good affiliates in your 8 programs over on CJ also played a part. Over the years here, it's kind of been setup that the only people making money are the "bad guys" but good affiliates can do quite good as well.

    I'm really surprised it's that low considering their top affiliates make way more than that.

    Doesn't sound right to me, either. There's got to be at least a million dollars per day in sales being driven through CJ links; even just one million sounds low IMO.

    That's not total sales is it, just their cut from the sales. That was posted before, don't remember what it was.

    Right. Their "affiliate marketing revenue" is CJ's fees for the quarter. Affiliates probably earned 2-3 times as much and merchant sales was probably about 50 times as much.

    So in very rough numbers for the quarter:

    $2 billion in merchant sales
    $100 million in affiliate commissions
    $40 million in CJ fees

    Probably all the GAN merchants they acquired and finally got the affiliates and data feeds transitioned over.
