Finally, I'm a Netflix Affiliate

Finally, I'm a Netflix affiliate. Now when I'm doing my ranting of the tastiness of Netflix, hopefully I can make some money.

I've liked Netflix since the first time we met. She has online movies and tv, though not free, the quality is very high- I think that's hot. After boasting about them for a while, I decided to sign up for their affiliate program. This way, I can get paid while I'm boasting them, something I enjoy doing (when I watch a good film).

I started to get into the Netflix affiliate program about 1 or 2 months ago. I had to go through the Google affiliate network to do so. It took me a little while to get into the Netflix affiliate program, because despite their direction to Google's affiliate program, Netflix was not showing up in the list when I searched for them (after signing up).

As you now know, I'm their affiliate. I track my own affiliate links by routing them through my website. This way, if a thousand people clicks on a link, yet the other website reports either no hits or buys, I can tell there might be something wrong.

The affiliate link I was provided with looks like this:
http://clickserve.cc-dt.com/link/tplclick?lid=41000000029889162&pubid=21000000000250898

Maybe I'm just vain, but I think my routing address looks a little prettier anyway:

So there you have it! If you want to sign up for the affiliate program yourself now you know how. Also, with the internets greatest kept secret, you can tell which of my links are affiliate links.

Don't forget, if Netflix doesn't show up when you first sign up for Google Affiliates, search the list every couple days or weeks and it will probably appear. I'm assuming they go through marketing phases of turning their campaign on and off, while not changing their entry page to their affiliate program.

P.S. I like the built-in spell checkers for the browsers Firefox and Opera. They help me appear less idiotic when it matters. I don't think Internet Explorer has it.

I am currently investigating Netflix affiliate choices and how it integrates with GAN. Thx for the article and congrats. Richard

Hey David,

Thanks a lot for this post. I was beginning to question my netflix/GAN sanity for awhile there. Thanks again.
