Trying to sell unused ad space on your web site?
Finding the right clients for your advertising inventory is a major challenge for any web master! There are so many advertising agencies and affiliate networks on the Internet being run by unscrupulous merchants.
Web master/site owner forums are littered with complaints from affiliates of problems with payments and the questionable business practices of some affiliate program providers.
The other solution is to find advertisers on your own, but this can be an administrative nightmare, very time consuming and will really only benefit you financially if your site is generating many thousands of page views a day.

Hundreds of hours have gone into tracking down and testing the best affiliate networks and advertising agencies around who will offer us the features, range, flexibility and promptness of payment and support we require.

Taming the Beast.net is currently an affiliate of FastClick Ad Network, Offers Quest, CJ.com, ClickBank & FineClicks networks for a variety of sponsor programs which entirely finance this site (and running a site of this size is not cheap) - plus a little extra for us!
I can personally recommend these affiliate networks - payment is prompt and all offer live statistics/sales tracking. There are no set up fees to become an affiliate with any of these advertising agencies. You are paid on on a variety of levels - either clicks, impressions, leads or sales depending upon the program.
About these affiliate networks
The FastClick Ad Network focuses on the delivery of banner ads and pop-unders. Pop-unders provide excellent financial returns to web masters, and are nowhere near as annoying to site visitors as pop-ups, while still giving advertisers great exposure.
The delivery technology that the FastClick Ad Network employs also means that your visitors will only be shown a pop-under once per visit. You are given full control over which banner and pop-under ads you display and you also have the option of including your own inventory of advertisements. The company will also pay generous commissions on referred advertisers and other web masters. Learn more about the FastClick Ad Network.
