ProfitPeelers has launched, in beta, an affiliate web service allowing publishers to easily add a script to their site that adds a peel away ad to the page. These unobtrusive ads are believed to convert at much higher rates meaning more dollars for publishers and more opportunity for marketers.
I’m excited about the ease of use and potential but this company seems a little spammy; they have the site set up on multiple domains and use one of those “Make Money From Home” or “Miracle Weight Loss Drug” site designs (see: peelawayadscript.com – edwinsoft.com/peelawayad – peelawayads.net – peelawaycorners.com). Another cause for concern is that most of their affiliates are in that same car salesman genre of wealth strategy, real estate millionaire, lotto secret get rich quick schemes. So why am I intrigued? ProfitPeelers appeared in a recent addition of Revenue magazine (October ’07; pg. 106) in an article by Affiliate Classroom CEO Anik Singal, I’m hoping their editors vetted the credibility of the company, and advertisers also include Netflix, Disney, Gevalia, and Columbia House. I’m going to give them the benefit of the doubt as the web service seems like a worthy business venture and I’m optimistic of the opportunity.
Should my experience change, you’ll be the first to know and if you are willing to give them a try (that is a referral link) keep me informed. If you are familiar with the company, I welcome your comments.
