When CJ started out they had a very down to earth feel. Within the first month of beingvan affiliate with them they had sent me a wooden "money" train whistle with their logo on it. It was a way to say welcome and helped me feel welcomed to their company. That feeling is long gone. They have since been bought by a different company and you no longer feel any different then joining any other large affiliate program. They do offer a lot of affiliate programs in many categories and they have competetive commissions. I stopped using them after more then 15 years when they started charging me an inactivity fee, I was sending them traffic but my sales dropped off while I was restructuring my website. As mist people know the affiliate marketplace isn't what it used to be and CJ proves that point all so well.
Inactivity fees, no loyalty to websites that have been with the company for many years, they are much the same as all the other affiliate programs they don't stand out anymore.
