Written by Sarah on . Posted in Network News

bluebook2016The mThink Blue Book Survey, the biggest in the performance industry, has returned for 2016. Aimed at breaking through the noise of competing networks, 20,000 advertisers, publishers and agencies vote for their partner of choice to form a list of the Top 20 CPA and CPS networks.

This year we aimed to challenge conventions in the performance marketing channel with the launch of our recent products. From rewarding publishers for multi-device sales, to making alternative payment models available for advertisers, we hope to change the game and make the channel a sustainable one.

We’re asking for just a couple minutes of your time to consider our commitment to becoming the best affiliate network we can be for our partners and casting your vote by clicking here and here.

Affiliate Window launches new interface for coupons and promotions

Written by Courtney Lowenthal on . Posted in Network News

We are pleased to announce the launch of our new coupons and promotions interface for advertisers and publishers.

This brand new area of the Affiliate Window interface will change the way advertisers manage their promotions, as well as make it easier to distribute coupons and promotions to publishers.

Changes for advertisers

The most notable difference for advertisers is the way that offers are created. The interface has been re-designed to be much more intuitive and allows for multiple sectors and regions to be selected for each promotion that goes live.  Additionally, advertisers are now able to make coupon codes available to a specific set of one or more publishers.

Please see the wiki for a quick run through on how to use the interface and start adding your coupons and promotions. All existing offers have been migrated to the new system.


Changes for publishers

The search functionality for offers has been significantly upgraded and we have improved the manual download links, supplying additional information including Categories, Regions and both the tracked and untracked deeplinks.

To make use of the new functionality, publishers will need to login and get a new download link from the interface. The old links will continue to work but with existing functionality (and any of the great new upgrades!)

We will continue to monitor the use of any old links and they will only be disabled once all publishers have moved to the upgraded functionality.


You can find a detailed guide on how to use the new publisher offers interface on our wiki.

Please contact product@affiliatewindow.com if you have any questions.
