High Profits Review

Intro to My HighProfits Review

HighProfits is a new affiliate program specializing in "make money online" niche products. I've only found out about it recently, but I was really impressed with what they have to offer. While HighProfits don't have a lot of products in their marketplace yet, the ones they do convert pretty well. Having in mind other great features of this program, it might very well become an alternative to ClickBank. That being said, let's move on to the main part of this High Profits review.

High Profits Review: Pros and Cons

HighProfits is a relatively new affiliate network with impressive features and an active community. The backend is packed with so many features it could make your head spin, but it is still very easy to understand and navigate. I've broken up my HighProfits review into several parts about certain aspects of the site I believe are worth mentioning.

Detailed tracking and statistics

The tracking system of High Profits is definitely one of its strongest sides. It registers all visitors coming to your affiliate links, counts Raw and Unique hits, visits to the order page (called "Join Hits") and, of course, conversions and refunds. You can see top programs that you're sending the most hits to; top sites driving you the most traffic; and you can even create campaigns for tracking, say, your Google AdWords efforts. High Profits even has detailed demographic statistics and shows what country your visitors are from and which one converts best and gives you most profit!

The statistics can be displayed in a Pie Chart or Bar Chart format, giving you a nice graphical representation of the data. Suffice to say, if you're a stats freak like me, you'll spend a lot of time playing with this stuff.

Payment options

HighProfits gets top marks for offering a nice array of payment options. Besides check you can choose international wire, MoneyBookers and PayPal. The latter is definitely more convenient than using checks.

You may set the minimum payout, but it has to be at least $100. This might be a bit higher than most other sites, but I don't really see a problem with it. Personally, I try to withdraw in larger sums anyway due to the fixed withdrawal fee.

Community and support

Another great aspect of High Profits is its active community and helpful support. If you contact them with any question regarding the affiliate program, someone will usually answer you in a matter of hours. HighProfits also has a forum with member discussions, helpful tips from the pros and affiliate website reviews. What makes it great is the fact that the product owners and administrators frequently post there as well and give you great advice.

Products and comissions

When it comes to the number of products available for promotion, HighProfits is a bit lacking - alhough it's understandable seeing how it's a relatively new affiliate marketplace. However, what it lacks in quantity, it makes up with quality. Take ClickBank for example - there's a lot of old and no longer supported products, products which don't offer any affiliate tools, and the like. HighProfits on the other hand provides a large variety of promotional material for every single product on their marketplace. That includes banners of different sizes, ready-made reviews (this isn't one of them) and even websites (with pre-written content or without) which you can upload to your server and use them right away.

Since all products offered are digital, High Profits is able to pay generous commissions ranging from 30% to as much as 100% for certain paid membership websites. You will find that the most popular number is around 50%.

Edit and update
: it seems this program has new owners. I'm not sure about its future, although it has been running without problems for now.
