Flux Advertising Review

Flux Advertising

Founded in 2004, Flux Advertising, also known as FluxAds, is a medium-sized ad network that covers multiple aspects of online advertising and is one of over a hundred such programs we review on experienced-people.co.uk.

FluxAds sports a medium-sized ad inventory that covers multiple niches and even though it may be somewhat limited it is adequately varied and includes some solid exclusive offers. The network supports CPA, CPL, CPC and CPM campaigns but depending on advertiser not every kind of campaign, apart from CPA, may be available at all times. Many of their offers, such as zip code lead captures, are US-exclusive but publishers can easily substitute FluxAds ads for third-party advertisements when traffic conditions are not met.

FluxAds generally offer many different ad types; always a welcome feature in non-specialized networks. The network offers regular as well as contextual banners and text ads, pop-ups, incentive lead offers, social media ads, email ads (plus mailing list optimization) and more. Again, not all offers are available to everyone since they depend on location, niche and advertiser.

Like many other performance-based networks, FluxAds maintains an affiliate bonus program which is called Flux Bucks. As with most such programs, the bonuses might or might not be worth it, depending on each publisher's preferences, but the point is that publishers are encouraged to put all their eggs in one basket and work mainly with one network; in this instance FluxAds.

With FluxAds the only available payment option is payment via check. Regardless, the network guarantees on-time payments and for trusted publishers a weekly payment schedule is available.

The network's support is decent, though apparently not easily reachable. However, FluxAds staff takes on a slightly more personalized and hands-on approach with their customers than is usually encountered in larger networks. While their official website lacks any FAQs whatsoever, it does include a handy glossary which does deserve a mention in this review.

Flux Advertising might not be big but is certainly well-designed and effectively run. Their offers include typical campaigns but also some less conventional methods that could prove lucrative for certain websites. Regardless, their heavy focus on US markets means that only publishers with US-targeted websites should consider them as anything more than a secondary choice.
