Tales from a Music Junkie
No Comments Posted by: Krissy

Although it’s only Tuesday, this week has been going by pretty quickly for me. Don’t get me wrong, I’m definitely looking forward to this long, holiday weekend, but I cannot wait for next Friday! Have you guys read my blog on Britney Spears that I wrote a few months ago? If you couldn’t tell, I absolutely love her, and she will be performing at the United Center on July 8th. Of course, I’m going so until then, I’m counting down the days and following her religiously on twitter and Facebook for updates on her tour. How do all of you follow your favorite celebrities?

I highly suggest all of our affiliates to pick up the Celebrity News – Toolbar Download, which is the ultimate toolbar for celebrity gossip and news. This toolbar is 100% free, and no registration is required. Users can get the inside scoop from Entertainment Weekly®, People™, Perez Hilton®, PopSugar® and more! This toolbar is complete with around-the-clock updates so your users never miss out on the hottest celebrity gossip. The Celebrity News – Toolbar Download converts on the toolbar download, and has a pay-out of $1.65.

The Britney concert is a little over a week away, but luckily, the two-episode finale of The Voice begins tonight. Do any of our affiliates watch this show? I didn’t know what to think of it at first, but I’ve slowly become obsessed with it! The finalists are: Vicci Martinez from Team Cee Lo Green, Beverly McClellan from Team Christina Aguilera, Javier Colon from Team Adam Levine, and Dia Frampton from Team Blake Shelton. I apologize to all the Javier fans out there, he is definitely amazing and all, but I have to give it up for the ladies this season! I’d be thrilled if any of the women win The Voice so it’s super hard for me to pick my choice for the winner.

If I had to choose, I’d go with Beverly. Her voice is powerful, and I love her presence when she’s on stage. Check out my favorite performance, “I’m the Only One”, using the link below:



She killed it, huh? ;)

Have a good day, everyone!

Summer in the City
No Comments Posted by: Kim

It’s Friday! I bet everyone is anxious to start the weekend! I know I am! I have my weekend all planned out! I’m going down town Chicago tonight right after work for a friend’s birthday. Then tomorrow I’m going to North Avenue beach to lie out and get a tan! I think the weather is supposed to be nice…well it better be since I’ll be at a beach! But I am in Chicago so who knows! It’s 80 degrees one day then the next it’s 60. But hopefully it’ll stay nice out. Sunday I’m planning on going to a parade in Chicago. It’s an annual parade and I’ve heard it’s a ton of fun. But I’d have to get up early in the morning, which I am not a fan of, especially on the weekends…but maybe I’ll sacrifice a few hours of sleep :) What is everyone doing this weekend?

I love Chicago Summers! There is always something going on and always something to do. The streets get so crowded and lively! I love it! I’ll probably be spending most of my weekends in Chicago this summer. But I do have other ideas of fun summer things to do that aren’t in the city. One thing is Country Thunder. It’s a 4 day outdoor concert of country music in Wisconsin. Most of my friends don’t like country music so I’m lucky if I can drag a couple friends with me. But this year it’ll just be my sister and I going! And the line-up of artists is great! I can’t wait! Here’s my little checklist of other things I’d like to do this summer:

-Go to Six Flags Great America

I live literally 7 minutes away from Six Flags but I never go! In high school, I’d get a season pass every year and go pretty much every day. Now, maybe I’ll go once a year..if that! Last time I went was for Fright Fest last October. But Six Flags is so much more fun in the summer because there’s a water park! Affiliates, grab our new 4 Free Six Flags Tickets offer so your users can go! It converts on an email submit and pays out at $1.30.

-Go to a Nascar race

My mom is absolutely obsessed with Nascar. Personally, I don’t get it. You just sit and watch cars go in a circle for 4 hours…? But my mom’s birthday is coming up and I know she would love to go to a race. So being the wonderful daughter that I am, I’m thinking about buying tickets to the next race in Detroit. Maybe it’ll be more interesting to watch a live race! Nascar has a huge fan base, and Affiliates, I bet a bunch of your users are fans too. This new Nascar DVD Club offers users a collection of the all-time best action from Nascar races. It pays out at $12.00 and converts on a first page credit card submit. Do any of my affiliates like Nascar?

-Go on Vaction… at least for the weekend!

It seems like everyone, and I’m not even exaggerating, is either on vacation right now or is going soon. A bunch of my friends, friends of friends, family members, and even Clickso affiliates are on vacation! I have to say that I am extremely jealous of all of you! I have no money to go on an actual vacation, but I’d like to get away for a weekend. But so far it looks like my only weekend getaway this summer is going to be our office trip in August. And I’m really excited for it! Affiliates, for all your users who are planning a vacation pick up this offer, Get 2 Southwest Tickets – NEW. It has a new landing page, it converts on an email submit and the payout is $1.50.

There’s my summer to do list, short and sweet! :) What’s on my affiliate’s summer checklist?

Have a great weekend everyone!

Introducing Your New Campaign Manager…
No Comments Posted by: Krissy

Good afternoon, everyone, and happy first day of summer! How are all of you spending it? I’m working today of course, but it’s so humid out I don’t even mind.

I forgot to tell all of you, but I’ve recently switched positions and am now a Campaign Manager instead of an Affiliate Manager. I guess I can’t refer to any of you as my affiliates anymore, but I can definitely keep you up to date on Clickso’s newest offers!

I find myself busier at my new position due to the fact that I’m always putting up various offers for Craig and Kim’s affiliates. Being so busy does make the day go by so much faster, which is definitely a perk, but I truly enjoy my new duties as a Campaign Manager! I’m the face behind the newsletter all of you affiliates receive weekly, and I’m now in charge of the emails you receive if an offer is going down. My new record of how many offers I can put up in a day is eight, and I hope that someday I can be even quicker than Craig in this aspect of my job!

Now that you’ve had a sneak peek into my new position, I’m going to tell you about a few of my favorite offers I’ve recently put up.

- Gold’s Gym Free Trial (Email Only): Affiliates, this will be one hot offer to pick up now that it’s officially summertime. Everyone wants to be in their best shape for the season, and this campaign could make staying fit possible! Users must fill out this super short form for a Free 7-Day VIP Trial Membership at your nearest Gold’s Gym. Conversion occurs on a first page submit with a pay-out of $2.75.

- Kate Bosworth’s JewelMint: Want to know why I think this offer would do awesome for you, affiliates?! Think of all the ladies who will be vacationing in the next few weeks, or have special plans that require the most fashionable looks. Users are eligible to join Kate Bosworth’s monthly jewelry club, which has actually been getting rave reviews! This offer has a pay-out of $4.50, and a lead is generated on a credit card submission.

- Bubble Shooter Game: The summertime usually means LOTS of traveling so why not relieve your users boredom with the most addictive online game! Affiliates, offer your users the newest version of the bubble shooter game. This offer can be incentivized and has a $1.00 pay-out.

Don’t these offers seem too good to pass up? It’s probably because they are! Contact your affiliate managers now to get these offers up and running. (And if you aren’t an affiliate of Clickso, what are you waiting for?! Sign up now!)

Term of the Week
Vertical – Yes, this word can mean an upright position, but in affiliate marketing, it’s a group of offers. Here are the above campaigns in their correct vertical:

- Gold’s Gym Free Trial: Health and Beauty (OR Free Trial)
- Kate Bosworth’s JewelMint: Shopping
- Now your turn, Bubble Shooter Game: ???

Hope you guessed Gaming! The name kinda gives it away, huh? You can also think of the word “vertical” as a category.

Did you learn something new today? Hope so! Not only do I consider myself a Campaign Manager, but a teacher as well. ;) Have a great rest of the day, everyone! And…

Shopaholics Anonymous
No Comments Posted by: Kim

Hi everyone! Hope you are all having a great week so far! Craig is out of the office today because he is graduating! So congratulations to Craig!!!

My week has actually been going by pretty fast! Maybe because my dance team’s season is over and we don’t have practice, so I am not getting home at 11:00 at night and having 14 hour days anymore! That was exhausting and definitely made my weeks feel way longer. But I’ve been able to go home, relax and watch TV. I feel like I haven’t been able to do that in forever! It’s great!

But a couple days ago I thought that since I don’t have practice, I’ll go to the mall, see if there’s any good sales going on, maybe buy a new shirt.. umm…bad idea! Unfortunately, I just discovered I am a shopaholic. :) My sister has been saying that to me for a while and I didn’t think so, but I’ll admit it now! Instead of buying 1 or 2 things, I walked out of the mall, actually I went to 2 malls..oops! But I went home with 2 pairs of shorts, a pair of shoes, 2 bathing suits, 3 pieces of jewelry and 3 shirts. I don’t even want to say how much money I spent!

But I don’t regret it because everything I bought is really cute and, I think, well deserved! Especially my bathing suits I bought at Victoria’s Secret. Their Semi Annual sale is happening right now and that means trouble for me and Krissy! Krissy said she is probably going to end up spending her whole pay check there! I’m going to try really hard not to go back there for a while; I’ve already spent too much at that store. But, Affiliates pick up our new $1,000 Victoria’s Secret Gift Card offer and give your users a chance to shop the Semi Annual sale! This offer converts on a valid email submit and the payout is $1.35. If I had $1,000 to spend at Victoria’s Secret, I’d be in heaven! :)

Another new offer we just put up that I love is Kate Bosworth’s JewelMint. It is a monthly jewelry club that offers really fun, unique styles! It converts on a completed lead with credit card required. The payout is $4.50. Grab these offers for your fashion savvy users!

*Term of the Week*

We have been putting up a few incent offers lately that some of my affiliates are interested in!

Incentivized Offers: Offers where the user is given something in return for clicking on or viewing an ad or completing an action.

Have a great day everyone! Yay it’s Friday tomorrow! :)

Snack Your Way Into A Smaller Swimsuit!
No Comments Posted by: Krissy

Good morning affiliates, how are you all doing today? I’d be in such a great mood if it were sunny and warm outside, but of course, it’s chilly and has been storming all morning. I guess that’s Chicago weather for ya, right?

I’ve decided to write this week’s blog on my favorite thing to do: SNACKING.

I was watching Good Morning America a few days ago, and the episode gave me a few good tips on what to snack on during the summer months. Because of the heat index lately, I’ve been eating my fair share of ice cream, popsicles and frozen beverages. I honestly don’t know how many calories I’ve been racking up! Starting next week (or so I say), I plan to start eating much healthier snacks. GMA has suggested:

Goji berries: Supposedly one of the healthiest foods you can eat! I’ve never tried these so I plan on picking some up this weekend.

Fruit: My favorites this season include watermelon, grapes (which are even better if you throw them in the freezer!), kiwis and mangos.

Veggies

Nuts: Kim likes to bring peanuts and cashews to work so next time she does, I might have to ask her for some!

Now that I’ve listed some of GMA’s suggestions, here are some of MY ideas for healthier snacking:

Skinny Cow treats: I seriously love Ben and Jerry’s as much as the next girl, but Skinny Cow has low-fat treats that are just as good! My faves are the ice cream sandwiches or Chocolate truffle bars, which you can find in the frozen section at your local grocery store.

Yoplait Fat-Free Yogurt: I enjoy Yoplait fat-free yogurt year round, but some summery flavors I’ve been stocking up on include Triple Berry Torte, Strawberry Orange Sunrise and Apricot Mango.

Kellogg’s FiberPlus Antioxidants Chewy Bars in Caramel Coconut Fudge: Remember those amazing Samoas Girl Scout cookies and being so depressed when the cookies so quickly disappeared because they were THAT good? Well, these fiber bars taste exactly like those little devils and pack 35% of your daily fiber. What’s up now, Girl Scouts?

Other than these snacks, I also propose that affiliates pick up this amazing As-Seen-on-TV offer, the Blueberry Giant, which has a pay-out of $20. With the Blueberry Giant, users can now grow their very own blueberries in the convenience of their own home. Why go to the grocery store when you have the perfect summer snack growing in your backyard? Affiliates, what are you waiting for? Pick this offer up right now!

Hope you all enjoyed reading my blog this week as much as I enjoyed writing it, but if you’ll all excuse me, I have a Kellogg’s chewy bar with my name on it… ;)
