    Thanks for such a thorough post about Escalate. We’ve been thinking about adding some advertisers, but want to make sure we make the right choice for our blog. I’m visiting from the Peek Into My Paradise link party.

    Excellent information. I’ve been thinking about ads for a while because right now I can’t apply for AdSense, so this could be a good option!!! Thanks for sharing this with me at Bewitch Me & Titi! Hope you are having a great weekend!!!

    I know you like Escalate. But, they seem to lack the type of advertising I would choose for my blog. However, it may work well for others who are into couponing and such. Have you done well promoting them on your blogs? I’m guessing the referral fee is what is paying off for you. Yes?
    Also…I got dissed by AdSense too. The only thing I can figure out is that I added a check box to prove “you’re” not a spambot and that made someone mad. I also have Akismet which collected hundreds each day…but I was tired of having to scan that for those it mistakenly added to the spam mix. I’ll be waiting now for AdSense to respond to my reply. Fingers are crossed.
    Hope your day is Extraordinary!

      Hi Diane, Actually although I love Escalate personally and recommend it to others, I don’t earn much by way of referral income. Last month, July was a grand total of $1.39 for the whole month from my referrals. And of course it’s true that not all of their offers will be suitable for everyone. I always did really well promoting giveaways in the early months of this year, but now I don’t do that so much or have the time! I did well on the ones where you earned per click – lots of 7c at a time can add up to a couple of hundred dollars in the end. And I did well promoting some of the fashion offers and the things like free nursing covers.
      Sorry to hear about the Adsense – I doubt it was anything to do with the spambot thing. But hundreds of spam comments a day – that’s crazy. I’ve only had about 300 in 10 months. I wonder why you are getting so many – are your comments “dofollow” ?

      There is no harm in trying it out. The offers are primarily aimed at women and that is certainly the target audience on your own site, although you will find that you’ll ideally need readers from the US on your site in order to do best with them, like most offers and advertising. Some offers will be online and suitable for whatever demongraphic and geographic you have. Certainly apply to sign up and see if you get accepted. Keep persevering if they turn you down the first time, and keep checking back because they get new offers all the time, some of which will be more in your niche than others. Good luck with it.
