A mobile affiliate network is a mobile platform that serves as a middleman solution between mobile advertisers, such as mobile app owners or businesses that sell a product or service via mobile web, and affiliates that are engaged at performance-based advertising for the former. It operates based either on CPA (cost-per-action) model, when affiliates get a reward, when such action as an app install takes place or Revenue Sharing model, when affiliates get certain percentage of revenue that they generate for advertisers.

For publishers and media buyers (or ‘affiliates’) CPA programs offer the ability to generate significant revenues with the right traffic.  If publishers identify traffic that converts particularly well for a certain type of offer (e.g. dating) then they can generate a much higher eCPM or overall revenue using affiliate advertising than typical cost per click based ads.  In addition, smart affiliates or media buyers can make a margin by buying traffic and optimising it to generate arbitrage between its cost and the value generated through the CPA offers.  However, achieving this can be challenging on mobile given the large number of parameters (device, operating system etc) that need to be tracked and managed.

Due to a great number of mobile apps on the market, it becomes progressively harder for app businesses to make a profit on their apps and hence finding an alternative revenue channel becomes essential. App affiliate networks allow marketers to leverage their established relationships with advertisers and get access to traffic offers in various verticals and locations. Reaching out advertisers with a specific traffic needs is a task app businesses and affiliate marketers aren’t simply capable to perform on their own effectively. It’s time-consuming and requires establishing business relationships that they don’t have time or a proper experience for.

Below you can see the list of some of the best app affiliate networks on the market to consider and partner with to generate more revenue with your apps.
