New York, NY – June 6th, 2012 – In light of the recent instability and multiple bankruptcies in the affiliate marketing industry, Adknowledge has announced today that it is officially offering to pay back affiliates for revenue earned, but not paid, when struggling networks have declared bankruptcy. Through its new “Affiliate Relief Program” Adknowledge will pay its affiliates up to a 30% performance bonus on incremental traffic run on the Adknowledge network for sixty days. There are conditions, but this is the largest bonus Adknowledge has ever offered.

“We hate to see the affiliates left holding the bag,” said Adknowledge CEO Ben Legg. “Too many ad networks have gone bankrupt, leaving affiliates with no payments and no answers. As one of the most stable and longest standing network, Adknowledge felt it could help by picking up the tab and offering that extra layer of security that affiliates are looking for at this time.”

Through the Affiliate Relief Program, Adknowledge will provide affiliates with up to a 30% bonus based on incremental Adknowledge revenue earned over and above that affiliate’s Adknowledge revenue from the preceding calendar month. Adknowledge cites a recent flurry of calls from affiliates running on other networks who are concerned about even more networks going under as the impetus for this program, and sincerely hopes that its willingness to pay these unpaid affiliates helps restore some stability to the industry as a whole.
