PeerFly Offer Restrictions and Allowed Marketing

If you do not want to get your account suspended it is important to know what you can and cannot do when promoting the offers at PeerFly. PeerFly has over a thousand affiliate offers, but they all have basically the same traffic methods that are allowed or restricted.

There are some traffic methods that are restricted across all offers and there are some that have a few more restrictions than the others. Below is a complete list of each method, how that method works, and what traffic is allowed and restricted. Follow it closely so you can make the most money possible and keep that money! If you have any questions after going through this list feel free to post them in the comments or contact your affiliate manager.

PeerFly Marketing Methods

Search PPC, Social PPC, Banner Display, PPV, and Contextual traffic are the primary ways you are allowed to promote PeerFly affiliate offers. Email marketing is a little more strict as well as most free methods. Incentive and classified ads traffic is not allowed at all. Here is a breakdown of each of those methods and how you can use them to promote PeerFly offers!

Search PPC

Bing Ads Example

Search PPC traffic comes, simply enough, from paid search ads. A few of the major search ppc networks are:

  • Google AdWords
  • Bing Ads (formally Adcenter)
  • 7Search
  • adMarketplace
  • LookSmart

You create your text ad, bid on keywords, and when someone searches for your keywords your ad will show up next to their search results. Organic SEO traffic is not considered Search PPC traffic. SEO traffic is fine on any offer that is not specifically for one traffic source (ex: Email Only).

Social PPC

Social PPC ad

Social PPC is specifically talking about paid ads on social networks. PeerFly does not allow it’s publishers to direct link offers on Facebook, Twitter, or any other social network as the social networks consider this spam. The main Social PPC networks are:

Plenty of Fish is in a grey area between social traffic and banner display because it is a mix of both. You can promote any PeerFly offer that allows Social PPC or Banner Display on POF.

Banner Display

Banner Display ad example

Banner Display traffic would be any traffic you generate using a banner advertisement. This includes advertising on blogs, doing media buys on other people’s websites, or basically advertising on any website using a banner. PeerFly provides banners for most of their offers, but you are welcome to create your own as long as it’s not specifically restricted.

PPV/CPV

PPV/CPV ad

PPV traffic is mainly pop up ads. If you are displaying an advertisement in an exit pop or modal (example: TrustJacker) then that would be considered PPV traffic too. The main PPV ad networks are:

  • LeadImpact
  • Mediatraffic
  • Trafficvance
I have an article on the top PPV networks that explains the differences between them that you may want to check out if you are interested in running PPV traffic.

Contextual

Mainly used with blogs and websites, contextual traffic is any text based advertisement. Some affiliate networks categorize PPV traffic as contextual, but obviously PeerFly has a specific category for PPV. If you are placing your own text ads within web content (example: article marketing) then the offer you are promoting needs to allow contextual traffic.

E-mail Lists

In order to promote PeerFly offers via email you will need to have your own managed double opt-in list and follow these guidelines:

  • Your list must be completely CAN-SPAM compliant.
  • You must host all creatives on your own server. If there are no banners for the offer you can create one and PeerFly will get it approved. You can also come up with a text and get that approved.
  • You must mask all links with your own domain.
  • You must add [email protected] as a subscriber.
  • Before sending out an email you must send it to [email protected] for approval.
If you need a plugin to mask your affiliate links I suggest using Pretty Link and my preferred email management company is AWeber.

Incent

PeerFly is 100% non incent, which means you cannot promote any PeerFly offers using incentive traffic. Incentive traffic would be any time you offer cash, points, or any sort of “gift” for completing an offer.

PeerFly is developing an incentive network which you can find at Incent.ly.

Classified Ads

You cannot promote any PeerFly offer using classified ads traffic. Craigslist, USFreeAds, and any other classified ads site would not be allowed. You cannot direct link nor use a landing page to promote offers on these sites.

Twitter

Unfortunately, Twitter spam ran rampant for awhile, so Twitter is no longer interested in allowing affiliates to promote affiliate products directly to their followers. You cannot promote any offer from PeerFly directly on Twitter. If you create your own landing page then you can promote it on Twitter as long as you are not spamming.

LIMITED Facebook Promotion

As long as an offer allows Social PPC you can promote it using Facebook Ads, but that is the only form of advertising that is allowed when promoting PeerFly offers on Facebook. You are not allowed to promote PeerFly offers on fan pages or to your friends on your feed by posting status updates with PeerFly links.

SMS

SMS messaging PeerFly offers is not allowed. Offers can be promoted on mobile ad networks, but not through text/SMS messaging.

Co-Registration

You are not allowed to promote PeerFly offers in a co-registration path.
