Clickbooth Review

Clickbooth Logo

Clickbooth is a rather unconventional premium affiliate ad network and is one of over a hundred such programs we review on experienced-people.co.uk.

The network started out as a typical CPA affiliate network and as such it wouldn't have been featured in one of our reviews but since then it had grown in interesting ways. Nowadays, Clickbooth features a CPA network and a CPC network, both individual but yet inter-connected.

Both their CPC and CPA network include several exclusive ad offers that pay well and both networks are rather picky when it comes to accepting new publishers, with minimum revenue and traffic requirements in effect.

Another unusual (but welcome) feature of Clickbooth is their guarantee claims. The network guarantees 100% fill rate for their CPC ads and highest payouts for their CPA campaigns (compared to the same campaigns from other networks). In order to achieve 100% fill rate for their CPC ads, all their geo-targeted offers are automatically replaced when they cannot be displayed/sold and non-targeted visitors are redirected to suitable offers so all the traffic is (potentially) monetized. This process is fully automated and it is a really great feature of the network as it saves enormous amounts of time for publishers with websites outside of mainstream niches.

As far as ad creatives go, Clickbooth supports all kinds of banners (including video and flash), text links, hybrid image/text advertisements (which work like more robust text links) as well as other ad formats depending on campaign.

Clickbooth tech support is available 24/7 (really). Their specialists are competent but it seems that there are different teams for their CPC and their CPA network. This might or might not be a good thing, especially for publishers who work with both networks. In addition to their decent support, Clickbooth features a rather sizable help center which includes FAQs, guides and a glossary of relevant terms.

Their reporting tools are useful but a bit limited. Regardless, all reporting stats are accessible through mobile apps (a big plus for many publishers) and their control tools are well above average but can be a bit confusing for publishers who run both CPA and CPC campaigns.

Around the web, there are numerous satisfied Clickbooth publishers that praise the network for its exclusive offers and its high-paying campaigns as well as its guarantee policy. We tend to agree, as Clickbooth manages to maintain two formidable ad networks that strengthen each other and offer publishers many interesting and unconventional monetization choices.
