      In this ecomony do travel programs produce any revenues? I have been interested in them but due to the economy I have been hesitant to even attempt them.
      Thanks for your insight.

    been successful with a SAS merchant, Friendly Planet Travel , they sell high value tours to exotic places. If you signup thru the ABestWeb forum, get double commissions. For high volume producers they have a very lucrative payout plan.

    Travel brands so got to be able to communicate their costs and USP clearly to customers. operating with affiliate partners will add legitimacy to a travel whole, expedite viva-voce referrals and greatly increase reach. It may also strengthen a brand’s long positioning in a particularly efficient method.

    By nature, social media is associate degree affiliate platform -- spreading votes of confidence and suggestions by spoken. Meanwhile, the complete trade is functioning on substantiation plans for social media, however it'll for the most part return right down to experimentation with completely different techniques.

    Travel is such a challenging and competitive niche. If you want to be an affiliate of a big travel brand and make a lot of money from it (I'm talking upwards $100K), you have to be tenacious and do the ff:


    1. Have a budget of around $50K for media buying

    2. Focus on retargeting only. Display doesn't work and you'll be wasting so much $$$$ for zero results.

    3. Select a retargeting company (note: if you need a self-serve RTB with retargeting capability, contact me)

    NOW THESE ARE THE EASY PARTS...

    The next steps are more challenging and requires some sales efforts

    1. If you are dealing with the advertiser directly like Agoda or some other travel companies, contact them and say that you want to invest in marketing their affiliate program BUT they need to be able to let you insert your retargeting pixels to their web pages. This is important so you can categorize the audience for retargeting later on. You get the pixels from the retargeting platform / company.

    2. Get the advertisers' product feeds. Most retargeting companies can help you implement product feeds. Product feeds are particularly helpful for automating the creation of personalized ads that will be displayed to retargeted audience. Example: if the audience viewed flights and hotels in Vietnam, the next time he goes online he will see retargeting ads related to hotels and flights in Vietnam.

    3. Work with ad networks. If you really really want to ask ad networks some favors, do this:

    - Check out which ad conference they are going. I did this with MaxBounty, NeverBlue, ClickBooth and Peerfly. I went to ad tech conferences (ad tech in NYC, SG, SF, London; DMexico, Affiliate Summit East and West) and set meetings with them beforehand. It's great if it's a lunch meeting so the meeting is longer and you have time for personal chitchat to get to know these people better. They will listen to you, especially if you appear knowledgeable.

    -- This is where you should do the ff: Make them understand your strategy to run their CPA campaigns. When I told them that I'll use retargeting, they didn't even know how effective the strategy until I showed them stats that we did for Groupon in 20 countries (this was March 2014, at adtech SF).

    -- You need to talk to them about inserting your retargeting pixels in their advertisers' web pages. Usually if you go through them, it would be easier since big advertisers trust them enough to let them insert pixels in the advertisers' pages

    -- Ask for a higher payout. If they give their CPA 50% payout, you can negotiate for 70% payout. Have an insertion order in place to make sure they keep their word.

    If you don't have money to invest in media buying, you should do some tests with a good product using retargeting. If the product is good enough, you'll have excellent conversions. Then you can have a proof of concept. Then looks for an investor / partner who can help fund the media buy. The thing about ad networks is they usually pay on a Net30 - Net60 basis. If you are a good performer, you can try negotiating for a Net15 payout schedule.

    Good luck!

    wow, this thread is gold!

    Generally is it more profitable to work on a CPS model with traveling offers then just CPA?

    I mean of course it's more profitable as you get more per sale but is it a successful business model?
