I like your review of the CJ. Just one suggestion, to place your links so when I decide to sign up, I would like to sign up through your link.
Best of luck to you!
Thanks for the comment Sunny. I appreciate your enthusiasm for joining CJ, but you join as an individual directly through their website. To the best of my knowledge they do not have an affiliate program for their own website, they serve as a connection provider for publishers and advertisers only.
I would still encourage you to apply if you would like to, and I also wish you the best of luck.
