Electronic Cigarette Free Trial Offers - Best Networks?

22 replies
In the last week or so, CX Digital and Max Bounty have dropped these campaigns, and I 'm just wondering if any of you can recommend any networks that currently carry them and aren't likely to drop them in the near future? I've had a look around Offer Vault, but some of the info isn't up to date and some of the links to the landing pages don't work. Many thanks

    I would really be curious on why those offers were dropped. I would call both affiliate managers and ask, you may not want to pursue this offer. You can go to myluci.com they have an affiliate program, but I have no info on that company.

    Hope this helps some

      I probably shouldn't have used the word 'dropped'. On one of the networks, it expired but on the other I'm not sure why it stopped. Yeah, might be a good idea to get in touch with my affiliate managers - thanks

        I would expect to see more new offers on these products. They may have been dropped due to an FDA ban on Chinese imported products that was attempted - but a court kicked out the ban last month. Had that ban been allowed to stand it was felt the FDA would try to shut down the entire industry - FDA has bowed to pressure from tobacco companies who are worried about competition from e-cigs. The federal judge not only ruled against the FDA but issued some very cutting statements about the agenda of the agency.

        That ruling may lead to new CPA ads in the next few weeks or months.

    I keep hearing from the affiliate managers that they're out of inventory. Possibly caused by the ban on Chinese imports.

      CX just dropped a crap load of offers I was running including the tobacco free cigs... I'm also looking for some of these free trial offers. Hydra has a few of them but they still owe me a good chunk of change from December I never saw...

        I'm curious why you folks would rather promote ecig CPA offers for just a one-time payment

        as apposed to affiliating with ecig vendors/companies that pay not just on initial ecig sales, but all future sales for the life of any customer you bring in??

        Those CPA offers come and go as quickly as the clouds in the sky.

        This electronic cigarette niche is one that is particularly suited to building residual income.

        This market, and demand for ecigarettes, is only going to grow. Picking the handful of top ecig brands to affiliate with and sticking with them should result in a real business with growing income stream.

      RMHOLLA wrote, in response to my question 'Why would you want to promote CPA offers for a one-time payment instead of ecigarette affiliate programs for residual income every time your customer returns to buy more cartridges, etc...

      Which ones do you think are the best to promote long term?
      There are quite a number of ecigarette affiliate programs. Choosing the best ecigarette brands/aff programs is pretty SUBjective, as apposed to OBjective. In other words, it kinda depends on YOU and what fits best with your current web marketing situation and ability. And don't forget to add some common sense into the equation too.

      But to suss out the most popular ecigarette BRANDS - do a few searches for "electronic cigarette", and permutations of that keyword/keyword phrase. See what BRANDS come up in your results. Notice what brand(s) seem to be searched for the most?

      Then go out and LOOK at those ecigarette brands/affiliate signup pages to check payouts, tos, affiliate tools and resources, etc. But don't just get stuck on the commission payout - ALSO check the vendor's sales page, and/or landing pages. If their site is unprofessional looking, has a sky-high Alexa ranking (isn't getting any traffic), or from your trained eye's judgement isn't going to CONVERT the traffic you send them... pass on it.

      Personally, I'm affiliated with multiple ecigarette vendors/brands - and I rotate different brands/promotions accross my ecigarette network to see which perform better. I'm constantly testing that, as it changes from time to time.

      I also have some sites/pages devoted just to ONE brand. And, Of course, I choose those 'brands' after doing the research and testing.

      But it's a big, wide open market with room for all kinds of strategies - Promote just one brand with one site or many sites, put up a full-fledged review site showcasing multiple brands, or do a combination of things.

      But frankly I think it's not smart to ONLY promote CPA offers for this. All that work to get good traffic to the CPA offer, and then that's IT... you get absolutely NUTTIN HONEY for the repeat sales generated by that traffic.

      Remember, these are consumable goods that people will replace.

      These ARE cigarettes after all - albeit smokeless Cigarettes - and people WILL use up their nicotine cartridges or run out of eliquid and buy that stuff over and over again. And they'll buy MORE accessories like chargers, extra batteries, etc as they need them.

      Why would you want to miss out on that? Are you building a long-term business, or a disposable/throwaway business? (just like cigarette butt that's snuffed out in the ashtray) :rolleyes:

      Again people, this is just my not-so-humble opinion...

    Lots of companies that sell/manufacture e-cigs have their own affiliate programs. Just sign up for one of those.

    I like Direct E-Cig you can sign up for it through Shareasale. Im going to implement it into my site (wont let me post my site ) which i hope to get up soon however I also have (wont let me post my site ) which features nonfree trial electronic cigarettes and they have been very profitable to me. I think they are better to go with personally
