Microsoft adCenter Launches Affiliate Program

Interested on getting some cash? Well, you may be able to with the new MSN adCenter Affiliate Program. For every advertiser you refer to adCenter, you'll get a percentage of their signups.

Cool. It may help others too, as some forum members point out.

The only concern is the domain name and marketing behind the product. It really hasn't gained momentum and there's not much of a marketing push behind the initiative.

Interesting, I stumbled upon the adCenter affiliate program a few weeks ago and thought it was a dummy test site. There was no marketing push behind it and this affiliate program didn't seem to have much resources behind it. I did talk with Jessica Lee who was very kind, but couldn't tell me what the payout was. One reason is the domain name www.microsoftaffiliates.net. Come on Microsoft, you cant get microsoftaffiliates.com?

By the way, Google also has an affiliate program which is nearly three years old. It's good that Microsoft is also taking on the challenge.

Just to point out. Microsoft do in fact own microsoftaffiliates.com as a whois quite clearly shows:- http://whois.domaintools.com/microsoftaffiliates.com Somewhat puzzling that they are not using it. Maybe they are still beta'ing the service?

Even though MS is 3+ years behind Google their payout is $35 vs $5 for adwords referrals.
