For our business, affiliate marketing is by far the lowest ROI marketing channel. If you're looking to get products, brands, and offers listed on coupon sites, Pepperjam Ascend is a great tool. If you're looking to engage with influencers or drive sales without giving away margin, Pepperjam Ascend is likely not for you.

I really like the way they onboard the customer, very easy to navigate and understand the overall software, and one more thing that its features. My only problem with this is that if I delete a partner, it remains in the database.

Cons
Partnerize
  • The dashboard/platform is the furthest thing from user-friendly. It looks like a high school student with zero experience designed it in excel and hoped for the best with the results.
  • Reports are hit and miss. They may load, they may not! It's ridiculous, in my opinion.
  • No mobile options whatsoever, everything has to be desktop. It's 2022, they need to catch up!

TUNE
  • The discovery network is limited and provides few options for finding new partners.
  • Setting up a resources page for affiliates requires custom coding and is not simple to do.
  • Introductory emails to potential partners in their network are often sent to inactive or wrong contacts that don't ever respond to introductions.

Highly recommended; the support from the team has always been exceptional. The prompt revert to the inquires and the live chat module resolves the queries real quick. The team makes efforts to close the ticket at the earliest, which is good for the users as they get the solutions easy and quick.

Pepperjam Ascend's user interface is way behind these other platforms. It's not intuitive nor is it easy to create custom reports and engage with your publishers. We have been stuck with Pepperjam and many other affiliate networks have a very similar layout without much upside.

Return on Investment
Partnerize
  • I was hitting anywhere from $130 - $450 per month in commission payout before Pepperjam Ascend. Now with Pepperjam Ascend, I maybe get $40! I am still waiting on payouts from January.
