    LinkProfits and DirectStuff form Alliance

    Germantown, Maryland: August 21, 2002:, a leading outsource affiliate program management and consulting company, has joined forces with, Inc., a full service direct marketing and infrastructure company. Specifically, LinkProfits will now offer its e-commerce clients the opportunity to use DirectStuff’s DirectTrack™ affiliate program tracking solution and to tap into their DirectLeads™ network of over 11,000 affiliate (also known as publisher) sites. In turn, DirectStuff will now offer merchant clients the opportunity to utilize the affiliate program marketing services of LinkProfits.

    “Although we will continue to work with the tracking solution of choice by our clients, this new alliance with DirectStuff gives us the opportunity to work much more efficiently with one specific solution,” said Jim Gribble, LinkProfits’ Managing Director. “The DirectTrack solution is not only robust and easy to use, but unlike many other solutions, it’s extremely affordable for my clients,” he commented. “Having access to the Direct Leads network of affiliates elevates DirectTrack to a network solution, much like LinkShare, Commission Junction and others who not only charge higher basic fees, but take a performance percentage as well. DirectTrack only charges for bandwidth – and unlike others, does not require exclusivity of the affiliate channel – it’s a great situation for my clients,” Gribble concluded.

    “We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to provide our services to LinkProfits’ clients,” said Jason Wolfe, President/CEO of, Inc. “And many of our merchant clients will benefit greatly from the affiliate marketing expertise that LinkProfits provides,” he added. “There's a really nice synergy between the two companies, and I’m looking forward to a continued working relationship with LinkProfits.”

LinkProfits provides superior outsource affiliate program management and consulting services to a select group of clients.

    Mike -

    I've known Jim Gribble (LinkProfits) for years, and he's a talented and reputable guy.

    His alliance with DirectTrack is relatively new, and I expect to see more companies with existing programs migrate to his services in the near future.

    Your post pretty much summarizes his company, and I would rank him in the upper echelon of folks in this business, with regards to him knowledge and ethics.
