You should have a pretty good idea of how Adcombo works. Now let’s check out a few of the complaints against Adcombo. Every network will have some issues but you’ll have to decide if the following are a deal breaker for you or not.
Geotargeting May Not Be So Great
A lot of CPA networks have geotargeting where you can run ads that target specific countries. But what if your audience isn’t there? Placing geo-targeted ads is no guarantee you’ll make commissions. As with any niche, you have to target your audience.
No Referral Program
According to our research, Adcombo doesn’t have a referral program for publishers. There’s no financial incentive for you to refer people to the Adcombo network.
Advertiser Hold Time
Advertisers can hold your leads for 30 days. This is so advertisers can make sure that no leads were declined. After the 30 days the leads are approved and are subject to payment. This may seem like a long time to wait for payment so having multiple streams of income will really come in handy here. Maxbounty.com, Traffic Jam Media, iGain.com or Ezoic are other networks that may be worth joining.
Not Listed With The BBB
At the time of this review, there’s no listing for Adcombo on the Better Business Bureau website. This may be a disappointment to some of you who overly rely on this agency to determine a company’s legitimacy. Though the lack of a listing doesn’t necessarily mean that Adcombo is not legitimate. The Better Business Bureau tends to only work with companies from the U.S., Canada and Mexico. So that may be the reason why Adcombo is not listed.
Should You Join Adcombo?
Adcombo is another CPA network that, for the most part, is pretty standard. There isn’t anything really negative about the company that should worry you. So you may want to consider joining Adcombo. But like most networks getting in will depend on your website traffic. All publishers can use more traffic. So with that said you may want to consider joining Wealthy Affiliate. They will teach you how to get great traffic to your site for FREE.
