How to sign up to join the CJ Network
First, go to the site of VIVnetworks.com, an official representative of the world's largest affiliate network CJ Affiliate by Conversant, find the section "For Partners" where are the links for free sign up (the top right and bottom left button) for bloggers, YouTubers and website owners. The rest of the process is in English.
After clicking, you will be redirected to the sign up page:
You may need to check your spam folder to find the confirmation email for the first stage of the signup process. Following the link in this email, you will be redirected to a more detailed form, where you need to choose a country, to select a category that defines your content (books/media, business, career, clothing and accessories, games and toys, computers and electronics, etc. and each of these has several subcategories). After the initial registration is completed, you have to fill in your payment information so you can receive your payments.
After submitting the form, your login information will be sent by email (you can change your password in Account – Administrative settings). Once you signed up successfully, it's very important to complete your Network profile (Account – Network Profile) and provide a short description of your site and the promotional methods you intend to use. In Advertisers, you can chose the programs you are interested in and request to join them.
After you've been approved for the program, go to the Links section, where you can find text links, banners and other advertising formats for your page. Each advertiser's program has specific conditions that, for example, often forbid trademark bidding and PPC advertising. You can also use the Deep Link Generator tool to monetize the links on your page.
Commission rates are usually calculated as a sale percentage from an order, which haven't been returned or cancelled. Some advertisers offer flat rates or performance incentives. For large retailers, affiliate advertising accounts for more than 10% of their turnover.
