    Adknowledge to Pay Back Affiliates Left Unpaid by Recent Network Bankruptcies Through “Affiliate Relief Program”

    In light of the recent instability and multiple bankruptcies in the affiliate marketing industry, Adknowledge has announced that it is officially offering to pay back affiliates for revenue earned, but not paid, when struggling networks have declared bankruptcy. Through its new “Affiliate Relief Program” Adknowledge will pay its affiliates up to a 30% performance bonus on incremental traffic run on the Adknowledge network for sixty days. There are conditions, but this is the largest bonus Adknowledge has ever offered.



    “We hate to see the affiliates left holding the bag,” said Adknowledge CEO Ben Legg. “Too many ad networks have gone bankrupt, leaving affiliates with no payments and no answers. As one of the most stable and longest standing networks, Adknowledge felt it could help by picking up the tab and offering that extra layer of security that affiliates are looking for at this time.”



    Through the Affiliate Relief Program, Adknowledge will provide affiliates with up to a 30% bonus based on incremental Adknowledge revenue earned over and above that affiliate’s Adknowledge revenue from the preceding calendar month. Adknowledge cites a recent flurry of calls from affiliates running on other networks who are concerned about even more networks going under as the impetus for this program, and sincerely hopes that its willingness to pay these unpaid affiliates helps restore some stability to the industry as a whole.

    This is a solid move IMHO as you rarely see something like this in the affiliate space.

    A flurry of calls from affiliates? Lol. In my years of being taken advantage of by affiliate networks, I have not had one not pay me. I have had payment withheld once on traffic because of some silly things I did that angered the advertisers though. :)

    Goodluck getting paid. Several associates I know, including our company has not been paid for months now. However, some were paid in terms but we are all getting the same run around. I wonder if this is another case of azoogle/epic and others of the same fate. Most associates i know including us, have stoppped traffic completely months ago.

    I have a feeling affiliates will be getting paid, they merged with another company. I know the guys they merged with. Mediatrust definitely has deep pockets it would be a dumb move to walk away from everyone like this.
