Reason(s) for removal: Apparent decline in affiliate interest. Additional info: Due to unannounced yet significant changes to CashTraffic and the rest of their family of adult affiliate programs – in addition to a perpetual lack of support – what trust we had in this program has eroded to the point that we cannot in good faith continue to recommend them to affiliates.
Without a doubt CashTraffic is the best adult affiliate program for pay per free trials that we have yet to come across. With a large selection of sites in a wide variety of adult niches, we have found them to be an excellent means to monetize niche blogs and other targeted traffic sites. Basically, affiliates get paid $40 for every surfer that registers for a free membership regardless of whether or not those trial members ever upsell to a full paid membership. Additionally, CashTraffic offers some decent quality pic and video galleries – most with some unique text scene descriptions – to assist affiliates in their promotion.

Oddly, we don’t see too many webmasters promoting the CashTraffic adult affiliate program. Considering how little effort you have to put in to generate some sales, we would think just about every affiliate would be promoting this program already. Apparently, some webmasters feel that the pre-checked cross sells that are found on the join pages, as well as the free trials automatically rebilling at regular membership prices after the trial period, are deceptive. Personally, we feel that the cross-sale and terms regarding the membership rebills are all laid out fairly clear.
As already mentioned, we have had great results doing nothing more than placing their niche banners on our blogs and sites, and assume that gallery promotion on TGP’s, MGP’s, and link-lists would be very profitable as well. Personally, we don’t deal with tube sites – too many 2257 concerns for our tastes, but would imagine the CashTraffic adult affiliate program would be ideally suited for surfers who are already looking for free content. While additional tools are not readily available, after emailing CashTraffic we were told that they “provide custom promotional material for webmasters usually on a case-by-case basis depending on their specific needs, whether it is banners, image or video content, then deliver the content based on their specs (i.e. size, feed, stars, niche, etc).“
We really can’t emphasize this enough: If you’re not offering something for free to surfers who are dead-set against paying to join an adult site, you’re missing out on a great deal of potential sales. At $40 per free join, that can be pretty substantial.
