RevResponse offers payment for free subscription offers delivered by widget, allowing website owners to custom selected free content that is relevant to their readers.
RevResponse pitches itself as being an alternative or addition to CPM and CPC advertising that the user maintains control of. Affiliates get to pick from 900 offers including business and trade magazines, white papers and podcasts covering more than 30 industries. Categories include: computers, technology, healthcare, sales and marketing, finance, telecom, food and beverage, transportation and more. Some suppliers that will be well known to readers include Macworld, The Economist and eWeek.
The display options are fairly broad; users can create standard banner ads or select from a variety of widgets. Websites, blogs and even email is supported, and you can create custom text for inclusion in RSS feeds. Qualified high traffic affiliates also get access to a customized version of this page (complete with logo/ branding) that can be promoted to readers.
Payouts per signup are a minimum of $1.50 per qualified offer with “typical” payouts ranging from $2.00 to $20.00 per action.
Affiliate programs aren’t new, nor are giving away free products, but as we see the rise of widget ad providers, RevResponse fits in as one solution that bloggers may find makes a reasonable compliment to their current inventory. Those interested can sign up here.
