We just updated a new feature for advertisers that should benefit both our advertisers and publishers. Advertisers can now view lists that highlight high performing publishers that are either underperforming for the advertiser, or have not joined the advertiser's program.
My network displays a list of publishers that are doing better on a relative basis in your category than they are for you.
Rest of network displays a list of publishers that are not in your program that have a history of performance in your category.
If you are looking for a way to improve the productivity of your affiliate program, this is a great place to start. The feature can be found by navigating to Publishers > Opportunities.
In order to be visible to advertisers looking for new publishers, you must opt in to not joined opportunities on your communication preferences page. To be visible to your existing advertisers that may be looking to expand their relationship with you, opt in to receive promotional communication for each advertiser to which you want to appear.
