Just signing up to various networks to get the ball rolling, there seem to be quite a few out there, which are the best and which are the worst?

* Traffic Vance

* Media Traffic
* CPV Marketplace
* Lead Impact

* Mega Click
* Adbrite
* Adoori
* Jema Media
* Linksador

Any personal experiences shared would be appreciated.

The networks I use most are Traffic Vance, Media Traffic and Lead Impact.

* Traffic Vance
I've been with them for a couple of years now and they are definitely getting more competitive. Good volume and good conversions for the most part. The popups they show are at 80% of viewers browser so you can potentially get more "real estate" on screen with your pop which is good.

* Direct CPV
Tried a few campaigns with them but didn't really get anything to work so have shut it down for now.

* Media Traffic
MT has good volume and more international volume than TV but can be hit and miss. Some niches work better than others and really just need to test to work it out. Tried quite a few category campaigns but didn't have any luck with those, I found it better to stick to picking specific targets. Account Managers are helpful and willing to offer suggestions.

* CPV Marketplace
Haven't tried this one.

* Lead Impact
I like Lead Impact but their prices can be on the high side so better to run with campaigns/targets that you already know are winners. They don't allow any kind of self targeting and are quick to disapprove keywords if they think there is any kind of conflict. They also don't allow offer rotations and will sometimes not allow campaigns if they already have a deal with the advertiser.

* Clicksor
Never able to make it work with them. Probably spent $200 trying.

* Adon Network
I used to do more volume with them but now not so much. Most people that are successful on Adon say you need to track by traffic source and turn off the sources that aren't converting. I agree that works but that usually means my volume drops alot.

* Mega Click
Haven't tried this one.

* Adbrite
Haven't tried this one.

* Adoori
Only run 1 campaign with them but they don't have keyword tracking which is frustrating. I still have money with them so may go back. Volumes seemed small.

* Jema Media
Haven't tried this one.

* Linksador
Out of 8 campaigns I set up with them I only have 1 still going. Volumes are pretty low but there isn't a lot of competition and the traffic seems ok.

How a network performs for you has a lot to do with the offers you're promoting and how you're promoting them. I'm yet to try the fan club method but when I do I'll be throwing it up on all of them that I have accounts with when I get to it. I've mostly been doing direct linking up to this point.

Thanks for the informative reply, I'd like to try Traffic Vance but the initial $1000 deposit is putting me off, which is probably the idea, to deter cpv newbs like me.

Which one would you recommend to start with?

First off, thank you espresso for the informative post!

I would recommend you start with Media Traffic and Adon. Adon has a very low initial deposit ($20 I think?) but they work a little differently as they are popunders.

Media Traffic I believe the deposit is $200 to start.

My favorite too is Traffic Vance, but yes, there is a significant barrier to entry as you need $1000 deposit and a personal referral to get accepted. They are very strict about checking you out before letting you in (which in the end is a good thing).

I blew all sorts of cash with Media Traffic when I was a newb I haven't been back yet.

I'm not on TV either because of the 1K but after this money I think I should.

I'm about to spend $1k in the month of July with DirectCPV. DirectCPV uses interstitial ads. You can read more about DirectCPV at mrgreen.am or I talk about it in a little guide I wrote last night on my blog.

1k isn't really a barrier for me, it's the not knowing what I'm doing, as soon as I start to create an income through other cpv networks I'll be all over Traffic Vance like a rash.

Haha! Excellent. Let me know when you are there and I can give you a referral (just don't give me a rash).

You're welcome. I agree with Denmaster and would start with Adon and MT. Just remember to set a budget for every campaign and keep it low to start. The min on MT is $10 and $25 on Adon. You pay only 0.005 on Adon per view so its definitely a good place to test and find your way.

I'm a big fan of TrafficVance - they have always been my goto network.

I've been running LeadImpact a lot lately as well. I like how the bids are lower then on TV and there's not as much competition (at least in my experience so far).

MediaTraffic works out decently for me - but the volume is really low.

I like DirectCPV as well because they have large interstitial ads and some offers work a lot better on there. It's easier to direct link there as well because the ads are large enough for any lander.

I already have accounts with LeadImpact, MediaTraffic and AdOn from when I did this before.

I was going to get going again with LeadImpact first, does that seem like a good plan? From what I remember they had the better reputation of all but TrafficVance, which I can't afford right now.
