Monetization Options – Pepperjam Network is My New Favorite

By Char

Pepperjam Network Affiliate ProgramIn January, Pepperjam Network launched its affiliate network to quite a bit of buzz. Pepperjam’s team is not new to affiliate marketing in any way – their team, lead by Kris Jones, are pioneers in the field. This fact makes Pepperjam uniquely qualified to offer the best in an affiliate network – they know what works, what doesn’t, what the affiliate companies need and what the publishers need in order to succeed.

Always looking for good site monetization options, I signed up right away and decided to give a good test run before sharing my experience with it. I use three other affiliate networks, Commission Junction, Link Share and Shareasale, so I have something to compare it to. Of the four networks, Pepperjam offers:

  • The sleekest interface – very Web 2.0
  • The best big picture snap shot of daily activity
  • Plenty of ad sizes and styles to choose from – and you can find them fast
  • Contact information for affiliate managers (something that is lacking on another network)
  • Rapidly growing list of quality advertisers to fit a wide range of niches

Since the launch of the network, I have been impressed by the quality of new programs and partners available to me as a publisher – especially as I have sites in a variety of niches. There is a wide range of companies and products represented from SEOmoz to Sesame Street, Jelly Belly to Orange County Choppers.

If you are looking for new monetization options for your site, check Pepperjam Network for yourself – it could be a good match.  Join Pepperjam Network today!

Thanks for the info on these. I’m considering trying affiliate stuff again, now that my kids site has grown. I( recently signed up with Shareasale, but should I try this one first? What’s the payout threshold like as compared to the others?


Randa – you should be able to find good programs through both of them for your site. The payout thresholds are pretty similar if I recall.


Thanks for the tip – I recently signed up with NeverBlueAds (because they are local) and was totally turned off by the sign up process. They asked so many question, and at the end, the agent said all you needed to qualify was a phone confirmation!

I used Shareasale for my Sports blog niche with some success, though the interface is a bit old, but it works. NeverBlueAds interface is slick, I have to give them that much credit.


Jimson – Shareasale does need an overhaul in many ways, but I do like their real time reporting and good selection of niche merchants. I haven’t really looked into NeverBlueAds yet.

Pepperjam’s interface is really nice.


I’ve been hanging on to this so I can join up. I’ve not forgotten – just been exceptionally busy lately. Have an update you’d like to share?

I’m really anxious to get in there. I’ve been a fan of PepperJam for some time.
