Northern Niche is a newly launched adult affiliate program, currently with just one site: Canadian Party Girls. This site is rather unique in concept, essentially a reality-style experiment that follows a trio of lovely party girl ‘hosts’ that travel the country hitting night clubs and party spots, filming their antics along the way. Apparently, the reality style content will not be solely limited to the party girls and what they do in front of the camera, but will also include a behind the scenes view of the cast and crew as they deal with the myriad of issues associated with the launching of the program. Considering that the whole concept centers around three young party-girls, we suspect there will be more than a few. Since our initial review, they have also added two new segments: The After Party, a post-shoot round table discussion with the cast and crew, and The Next Director, where members are awarded the chance to meet the cast and crew, direct a scene, and appear on the corresponding The After Party segment.

Northern Niche Summary
Above, affiliates will notice that some of the promotional tools are indicated as being absent but followed by an asterisk (*). Basically, what this means is that although those tools may not be expressly provided at present, they can be found on the actual site (though, we have since been informed that tube clips will soon be made more readily available). As such, some manipulation will be necessary for affiliates to make use of them to incorporate into their own promotional efforts. On the programs ad tools page, affiliates will find banners of various sizes and just a pair of ready made galleries. However, upon signing up affiliates will receive an email with the remainder of galleries currently available, and will continue to receive notice of updates with additional hosted galleries thereafter. In the meantime, however, since this is a CCBill program it is a relatively easy matter for affiliates to create their own deep links directly to pages of their choosing, such as the on site gallery pages, blog-style update entries, and video trailers.
It is also worth mentioning that this site is not strictly a membership site. While members can join the site in the traditional sense and access all of the updates as they occur, they can also choose the VOD options of renting and/or downloading the DVD compilations. No matter the joining members preference, referring affiliates earn 50% recurring. We should also point out that the site also contains a pair of footer ad’s for live cams and an adult toy store site that are not part of the program – a practice that has become so increasingly common as to be hardly worth mentioning.
While we like the Canadian Party Girls site and concept so far, some Northern Niche affiliates may be discouraged by the paucity of initial content and limited number of promotional tools that are immediately available. Personally, we believe this is all the more reason for industrious affiliates to get in early and start promoting this program while it is still novel and unsaturated.
