View Full Version : BeFree

Anyone use BeFree? I have been using CJ so far, but I have a merchant that's only offering detailed datafeeds via BeFree. Just wondering what people think of them?

I've done a bit of searching and on the whole, people seem to be pretty pleased with them. There were a few people suspicious of their stats reporting, but it seems you always get that with any network.

They seem alright to me. Just wondering if anyone's had any bad experiences?

I'm a member but I haven't ever used any of the programs.

Befree and CJ are owned by the same company.

I use alot of BeFree programs. Including the one for my new clothing site.

Oh, yeah, Valueclick bought out CJ didn't they... I remember...

Yeah. They're still very different services though.

Well, they're not different anymore...

I just read that everything will be handled through the CJ interface.

I tried to sign up with befree a few months ago and they never even replied to me. I'm pretty sure it was just a glitch and I fell through the cracks, but I haven't been in a hurry to sign up again. Perhaps just a *little* bitter ;)

That would be flyingpylon but don't worry about it.

I got the following e-mail last night:

As a valued client of Be Free/Commission Junction I want to let you know about a milestone for our combined organization. Since late last year we have been working as a unified force and effective immediately, we are adopting Commission Junction as the unified brand for our company. Our name represents two industry powerhouses, and our identity and culture will continue to reflect the positive characteristics of our teams in Marlborough, New York, Pittsburgh, London, and Santa Barbara.

Our continued focus is to provide the best performance marketing solutions anywhere. The combination of BFAST®, CJ Access™ and CJ Vantage™ brings to market capabilities that are unparalleled in the industry today and we are making great progress with the integration of these offerings. Of course, as we continue this important effort, we will ensure that all of our current solutions remain fully operational and supported to ensure nothing but continued growth and success for each of our clients.

We will be making this announcement to the public with a press release tomorrow and adopting a single Web site at www.cj.com. From the homepage of the newly combined site you will be able to login into all of your accounts including the CJ Account Manager for advertisers and publishers, BFAST, and the BFAST Partner Gateway. Look for other developments on this site during the coming months.
