AffSpy – Affiliate Intelligence

I’m about to release a pretty revolutionary tool that will change the affiliate industry, which flows along nicely with their slogan “Change the Game”. You heard it from here first, may I present…



AffSpy – Affiliate Intelligence

Now right now, the private beta release isn’t actually live yet but will be in about a week (only select people will be able to test it then). I am good friends with the founder of AffSpy and was able to go into the beta and take some screenshots and let you guys know how cool it’s going to be. Sign up to the VIP list on the homepage to get all the updates and exact date of release. We’re going to be getting a table at the meet market at Affiliate Summit which I believe is on Sunday morning, so if you want to see me stop by there. I’ll be lookin’ like this :



Alright so now what is AffSpy? Right now, it’s basically a search that pulls data from all the top affiliate companies and displays it right in front of you. Say you’re running Flycell on ringtones right now and you want to know if you’re getting the highest payout. Go to the search and just type in “flycell”, and see the results shown below (click to enlarge) :



Now we find the offer that we’re promoting. The first option is the one we want, and we see that 6 networks have it, and the highest shelf payout is $16.50. Let’s click it and compare the payouts…



You can instantly compare payouts from different networks. What does this mean? You can find other networks with the same offer but offer a higher payout – which means more money in your pocket…awesome. In the screenshot above you can scroll down further and there are a bunch of other offers/networks to look at. We can see that Copeac has the highest payout at $16.50/lead. We can preview the landing page and add this offer to our favorites list.

We can also view the banner/email creatives right from AffSpy, without even having to join/login to the network. Just click on the little button and down they pop :



There’s like a million other banners if you scroll down more – really cool. So right now we can research and find the network with the highest payout on any offer we want. We can also research new offers with AffSpy. Say you’re promoting ringtones using Flycell, but you’re looking for something that will convert better. Just go in the search bar and search “ringtones”. You’ll see 34 offers come up :



We can browse a ton of networks instantly and research other offers out there. Again really helpful, time saving, and money saving. If we navigate to the Browse tab at the top, we can see a nice little advanced search :



You’ll be able to search for offers by keyword, country, promotion type, network, etc. On the side you’ll also see quick links to new and top campaigns. No more having to pay attention the 25 emails you get every day from networks with their “new offer reports”. Just go here and check everything out and maybe find an offer you normally wouldn’t find.

Overall, it looks like an awesome tool and the best part for affiliates is that it’s going to be free. You can meet the AffSpy team at the table at ASW as well as sign up for the private beta list. The list is limited to 100 affiliates so make sure you stop by Table #90 early to get on it. Enter your email on to be notified when it’s open to the public.

    This sounds like a pretty awesome tool. Also a great way to maybe have your AMs bump your payout if they just aren’t stacking up against the competition. I like it :D

  2. February 18, 2008

    damn nice! it does get annoying when I move from window to window to another window to see if this network has this and that. This is really good and very good comparison.

    sometimes I get frustrated and I just chose 1 just because I do not want to login to these other networks anymore.

    nice – hope to see this at ASW!

    sorry but I think this is BS. perhaps this is good for smaller affiliates which don’t get any bumps.

    If there is a $5 CPA at CpaEmpire and $4.75 at Azoogle, then a good affiliate can get $5.50 for example at both. When I have a better relation to my Azoogle AM I think I will settle with them because they will offer me the most in the end. and what the default payout is doesn’t play any role.

    I was about to make myself a little database of offer payouts because it’s a little annoying searching through different networks all the time to check the payouts. It’s cool that this looks like it does just that.

    How good it is depends on how many networks it works with though.

  5. February 18, 2008

    Holy cow, this is going to be revolutionary. Great work man!

    Seriously…Dude…you just read my mind!!!!! I was just comparing payouts and then I see your post…WOW! Well needless to say I am IN!

  7. February 18, 2008

    Amazing idea!

    Wrong. Networks lie, no matter how big of an affiliate you are. Most of the time the network your working with is not the source of the offer and they get it from another network who can offer you a higher payout direct.

    What do you do when a network loses an offer and you still want to run it? Login and check everywhere? Ping/Email all you AMs?

  9. February 18, 2008

    Yeah great idea, I’ve been running my own for about 3 months now for free here:

    I can’t tell you how many times you can get bumps just by knowing what other networks are paying. I looked at putting the banners in there too, but realized that for ppc they’re pretty much irrelevant. Is theirs real time or did they take the datafeed approach?

    Is the beta testing limited to 100 or the whole membership area? Nonetheless this is AMAZING! Best part = FREE!

  11. February 18, 2008

    Wicked cool. Hopefully you can get us some accounts.

  12. February 18, 2008

    Keep it up bro looks like you have been doing your killer breakfast and bumping up the weight. Anyway yea the payouts look killer enough for any serious affiliate marketer to get in on this.

  13. wow

    Wow, that is slow as hell – too me 10 minutes to get a list of payouts.

    Aside from that its pretty much useless since the info isn’t presented in a manner that is meaningful.

    Yeah, PPC Coach was on top of this :)

  15. February 19, 2008

    great stuff — looks slick; looking forward to the beta.

  16. February 19, 2008

    It is a good Idea and I actually had this idea, but never acted on it, so glad to see someone is… I just wonder how soon it will be before the networks deny you access to those payouts for your tool… I am sure u guys will find ways around it…. but i am sure the Affiliate networks won’t be happy.. I think this tool will be great for newbs but if you have been in the game for a while, base payouts means nothing and thats when your relationship comes in handy for those bumps and top payouts.

  17. February 19, 2008

    Looks like it’s going to be a useful tool to add to my arsenal!


  18. February 19, 2008

    This tool comes in handy for a beginner affiliate like me. I’ll join the VIP list to stay posted.
    P.S. Nice T-Shirt you got there ;)

  19. February 19, 2008

    Ohhhh, nice! I’m going to join this and keep updated :)

  20. February 20, 2008

    I just told a friend a week ago how I was noticing different networks had the same aff program,but with different commissions…this is just what affiliate marketers need and it should cause aff progarams to raise their commissions a bit higher.

  21. February 20, 2008

    One thing I like to see immediately when checking out a potential aff site to promote are the creatives such as banners…so this particular feature besides obviously knowing which network is paying the most makes this a must-use for netrepreneurs.

  22. February 20, 2008

    Thats awesome I was just hoping something like that would exist and you’ve shown me the light.

  23. February 20, 2008

    Wow, this looks like an expanded version of Offer Vault. But this looks like a better GUI and search functions. If this is going to remain free then Offer Vault/Affiliate Radar my lose a customer.

    Two questions. 1. How many networks are in the database? 2. If this is free, how are they making money?

  24. February 20, 2008

    My guess would be referrals. Yes no?

  25. February 21, 2008

    I also have a beta preview account of affspy and have done a short review at my blog here

  26. Tab
    February 22, 2008

    Would this site include UK aff networks?

  27. February 27, 2008

    Not a bad idea you got here. people see better offers, sign up on a new network, you get referral comissions on their likely already successful campaign.

    This tool seems awesome, please let me know when you want a review copy. thanks
