Motive Network’s kick ace interface!

The Motive Network is yet another affiliate network on the line.  Now I know you have all see a bunch of affiliate networks out there.  So what is so different about Motive? It’s the interface!

As I’ve mentioned before I have signed up with a lot of CPA networks.  They are like a drug to me.  But Motive has definitely stood out to me as a cut above.  The reason for this?  Their killer interface.  I must say, this is some serious interactive stuff.  I’m going to attach a YouTube vid at the end of this post of their new Advent 2.0 interface so you can see how nice the interaction is once inside.

Motive Interactive was started up in 2003 by Brendan Smith.  Currently they are located in San Diego, CA. Brendan started out working for NetCreations which is an opt-in email marketing company.  They work with large corporations such as MSNBC and CNET. Brendan is also a founding member of The Online Lead Generation Association (OLGA).

Advent 2.0 is pretty advanced for an affiliate platform.  My favorite feature would have to be the simple fact that I can log in and look at a huge graph right in my face that tells me how well I am doing.  The graph they got is from Maani, but it definitely integrates well with the site. Also, once inside you have the option of adding several offers to a quick view.  That means that once your in right under the graph is a list of offers that you are currently promoting and their live stats.  If all affiliate networks integrated this quick view I would be much happier.

Their user interface after the front page is also clean and streamlined.  It is very easy in the Advent 2.0 platform to navigate your way to the offers that you want to run.  Not only that but they have a tab for hot offer, exclusive offers, new offers, and of course all offers.  Koolest part is the ease for viewing the description, offer preview, and the available creatives.

The Advent 2.0 uses a lot of AJAX.  This allows for several parts of the page to load while still allowing you to go about your business on the website.  For example, if you want to view an offer you just click the offer and the section that the offer is in will open up allowing you to view more information.  There is no new page to load, and no window that pops up.  This definitely saves time and we all know that in business… Time is Money!

Oh and REPORTING!  This beats the cake.  Reporting on the Advent platform is definitely above par! With the click of a button I can have my reports downloaded in PDF, EXCEL or CSV formats… Or all 3 if I wanted. Like other networks they allow you to select the time period to view reports for.  And of course you can create those excel spread sheets with the click of a button.  Man it’s easy.

Anyways view the video below to see how the inside looks! You definitely won’t be disappointed.

I can’t say I have ever seen anything like it.  It definitely makes CPA marketing fun HAHA.

Now go join them!
