Official Top 10 CPA Networks Announced

Performance Marketing Insider is proud to announce the results of our Top 10 CPA Networks Survey for the Winter 2012. This survey is a continuation of the survey that has been done for almost 10 years, first with ADBUMb then ADOTAS.com. The industry has obviously made some huge changes, and with that every year those changes become more apparent based on who leads the industry.

CPA Networks have become one of the cornerstones of the Performance Marketing Industry and has provided income for hundreds of thousands of people acting as independent small business professionals. This has occurred even while our economy has suffered, making the enormous growth we’ve seen even more remarkable.

This was one of the biggest surveys that we’ve had, with thousands of affiliates, marketers and industry executives voting for their favorite CPA network. Here are the results of the 2012 Winter Survey of the Top CPA Affiliate Networks. -0-

10. Affiliate Venture Group
http://affiliateventuregroup.com/
By far the “smallest” network on our list, it has become a boutique network run by  Ricky Ahuja who has made a name for himself and his blog.  While he’s not the biggest in the industry, he’s definitely one of the most liked.

9. CrushAds
http://www.crushads.com
CrushAds was just launched this year, a spin off of the major lead generation and mailing company BMI Elite.  After buying the entire data and lead generation business from the guys who own Cake Marketing, they decided it seemed smart to open their own CPA Network.  Already they’ve hired the best talent in Florida and are making waves.

8. MundoMedia
http://www.mundomedia.com/
MundoMedia is know as the preeminent mobile performance network. They are know as having more mobile offers than anyone in the space. In addition to this, Mundo is also a one-stop-shop for some of the best converting offers in the performance space.

7. MaxBounty
http://maxbounty.com/
Despite a well publicized battle with Facebook that was settled outside the Courts eventually, Max Bounty has bounced back bigger than ever.  Located in Canada, they work every single American Holiday, and are one of those companies that have stood the test of time since 2004.

6. Cutting Edge Offers
http://www.cuttingedgeoffers.com
Don’t know these guys? Well, if you are running a biz-opp offer on another network, it probably comes from them. Formerly known as the BizOpp Network, Cutting Edge Offers is a division of one of the longest running companies in our industry, Cutting Edge Media. For almost 15 years they have been a key part of the industry.

5. CPAWAY
http://www.cpaway.com
We aren’t sure what they are doing at CPAWAY, but its definitely making them money. CPAWAY has expended in the last year to include a new division focused on Incentive Marketing. They’ve also been the biggest sponsor of almost every conference, every major publication and magazine – and their logo is everywhere. They’ve made it clear that the way is definitely focused on them.

4. Neverblue
http://www.neverblue.com
Neverblue is one of those companies that everyone knows in the industry. While it doesn’t exactly specialize in anything, everyone knows that it’s a stable company with the ability to provide service to affiliates and always pay their bills on time. That’s helped them slowly grow since 2004 from a small company run by four guys to being sold and being one of the biggest companies in our industry.

3. Adscend Media
http://www.adscendmedia.com
Adscend Media has helped bring the content locking industry to light, and with that has made huge noise about this innovative technique of promoting offers. While not everyone has gotten on the content bandwagon, they’ve been out there pushing it as one of the most cost effective techniques in the industry. Depsite some negative news this year also, they are still growing in leaps and bounds.

2. ClickBooth
http://www.clickbooth.com
ClickBooth is the 500lb Gorilla in the Room, and always the company to beat. Last year they were ranked #1 and are considered one of the most stable, long lasting companies in the industry. This is a company that almost every “Super-Affiliate” mentions time and time again, and they are rumored to pay out over $100M a year to affiliates.

1. Peerfly.
http://www.peerfly.com
Started in 2009, Peerfly has become one the biggest success stories of the past year. Even though they are a small company compared to many on the list, they have perhaps one of the most loyal audiences. If you ask anyone in the industry about Peerfly, they will tell you they are a one-stop shop for everything. More importantly, they have some of the most knowledgeable and well-liked affiliate managers, including Luke Kling, our top Affiliate Manager of this year.

  1. If I’m not wrong then aren’t we missing EWA here ? lol

    PS: AVG is damn great network… Next time I want it to be on #1 😀

  2. I work with all (!) known CPA Networks for years, also the one mentioned here, except one, check my site for reference.

    No.1 is Neverblue and No. <> is epicDirect.

  3. Nice list, Adscendmedia was and will be one of the best CPA network that actually exist!

  4. Nice list, I’m surprised about a few networks that made it there.

    Is there any rank done by earnings? From the richest to the poorest networks in term of earnings.

    • Obvious issue is that are you going to trust network on what they owe. There are so many posers out there pretending to be “thugs” online that claim to be millionaires while they live in Daddy’s basement.

  5. Btw, Congrats to everyone who made the list.

  6. Congrats Luke !
    BTW does EWA rank in top 20 ?

  7. Congratulations Luke! Keep up the good work!

    And of course, thanks to everyone who voted for us :) You guys rock.

  11. Congrats to peerfly and Luke. They really deserves this. Btw, glad too see mundo media and CPAway there. They both are really underrated.

  18. Congrats to my good friends at PeerFly they deserve to be number one they have proven themselves to be one of the best networks.

  19. That’s a awesome list of best cpa networks. Currently i work on different ones.

    We’re happy to be climbing the ranks and to be associated with such great networks! Look for us to push even harder in the months to come to give back to our affiliates as we aim to strive to be the top network out there.

  22. I work strictly with Peerfly. I avoid Clickbooth at all costs.

  23. but why is it that cpalead.com don’t make the top 10

  24. Well, I always used Neverblue myself. I luv their out of bounds contest. Even though I haven’t been, but I have always made money with them. I used to use Maxbounty, but haven’t used them in a while. Maybe it’s time for me to take a look again.
