ADVANCED: This section applies to affiliates that SMS or host approved forms on their own sites.
Most affiliates host ads that link to OfferForge advertisers landing pages, where the consumer completes the form. Affiliates who engage in SMS marketing, database marketing or host their own approved lead generation forms are able to post leads directly to OfferForge. This is particularly useful as it removes the requirement to manually capture or batch upload leads and ensures that fresh, hot leads are instantly transmitted to advertisers. OfferForge maintains the lead management infrastructure to capture leads, match them to buyers and sell the leads at the best price for affiliates.
This document explains the process for getting approved, set up and running using our Lead Post APIs’.
It is important to note, you need to be approved for each offer that is set up prior to sending API’s.

According to a survey by leading researcher people are more likely to make a purchase based on a banner ad than an SMS. The company surveyed 29,000 people with Internet access from 58 countries.
The findings indicate that a mix of media and word of mouth advertising bring about the most success in raising consumer awareness, and the most persuasive awareness drivers include a mix of activities like in-store discovery, TV, print advertisements, advice from family/friends, free samples, searching the Internet, and professional/expert word-of-mouth advice.
“Consumers increasingly find the Internet and mobile are compelling vehicles to get information about new products,” the firm says. “However, potential reach and ease of execution varies substantially.”
We’re not convinced that in Africa this is entire accurate but as you can see, all other methods listed are more effective than text messages. It appears that marketers may be better off reaching consumers on their mobile devices via Internet channels like search, websites,articles, forums, social media, video sharing sites, and even banner ads.
The study helps to prove the fact that it is still a very useful tool in the arsenal of any affiliate marketer. The use of these ads are however the biggest difference between making money online and making little to nothing.
Affiliate marketing campaigns are more often than not aimed at the whole population. You as a publisher should make sure that you target the correct consumers with your affiliate marketing efforts.
