    CJ--What to choose

    I'm trying to add a few banners from Commission Junction into my rotation. Does anybody have any recommendations on programs that have worked for them?

    thanks!

    If you are going to be using banners, then i would suggest that you choose those that best suit your audience, banners that have worked for others may not work for you because your audience may be very different.

    iTec is correct. What works for me, may not work for you.

    Instead, why don't you tell us a little about your website and your target audience. With that information, we'll be able to offer suggestions on programs that may work for you.

    Thanks for the offer.

    It is http://www.powwows.com

    The site focuses on Native American Pow Wows. It has an active forum, calendar of events, etc. Most of the visitors are Native Americans, others are teachers and students, and some non-Natives that participate in Pow Wows.

    So do you have any ideas?

    thanks

    Sounds like a real good idea. I'm new to CJ, how do I do that? Is that something I actually have to create?

    thanks

    Amazon aren't a part of CJ. They have their own affiliate scheme.

    Once you join them, you have the option of linking to specific items (usually books) relevant to your site, to maximise your commission.

    I think they pay quarterly.

    Amazon is good for highly targeted sites (if you can find relevant books/CDs/videos!).

    Yes, I'm allready an associate with Amazon, and it has worked well. I hadn't ever used thier banners though. I had just built a page with links to some products.

    I've setup the banner to point to keywords "pow wow". Here is the code:

    Code:
    <script src="http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=nativeamericapow&l=st1&search=pow%20wow&mode=music&p=13&o=1" type="text/JavaScript"></script><noscript>
    <MAP NAME="boxmap"><AREA SHAPE="RECT" COORDS="379, 50, 460, 57" HREF="http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm/privacy-policy.html?o=1"><AREA COORDS="0,0,10000,10000" HREF="http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/redirect-home/nativeamericapow"></MAP><img src="http://rcm-images.amazon.com/images/G/01/rcm/468x60.gif" width="468" height="60" border="0" usemap="#boxmap">
    
    </noscript>
    I'm using AdCycle to serve my ads, anybody have an idea on how to use this code with AdCycle?

    Thanks for all the help!

    Easy. When adding it, choose "HTML" rather than "GIF".
    Insert the code and then click submit.

    PaulT, it shows up when I'm editing the ad, but when I look at my site, I just see the default adcycle banner??

    Any ideas?

    CJ banners have been pretty un-effective for me, but choose some that target your audience.
