Default Former DirectLeads boss jumps aboard Web 2.0 bandwagon

Hi all,

Many of you will recognise the name Jason Wolfe. He founded the Direct Response Network, which runs the DirectLeads affiliate network and the DirectTrack affiliate marketing software platform.

Resigning from his position there last year, he has announced this week that he'll jump into an executive position with Jambo Media, an online video service provider that is trying to equip web publishers with simple tools to enable them to add and manage video content on their sites.

It will be interesting to see whether Jason helps to grow Jambo as quickly as he did the Direct Response Network.

Kind regards,
Josh

Hey Cyburrr,

Was it Jambo Media or DirectLeads that sent you the invitation?

Kind regards,

It was a Jambo rep. There was no mention of Direct Leads. Is that good or bad? lol. I signed up - was approved - but am trying to figure out the tax form I was sent a link to (necessary for payment - so that's sort of important ... lol). I haven't read any reviews on Jambo - hopefully it's a good company. I'm kind of excited about adding video ads. Any idea how the revenue is compared to the regular banners and towers? There wasn't any clear indication on Jambo's site.

It sounds like a good opportunity. I've been involved with DirectLeads for many years but have never actually investigated Jambo in depth, so I have no idea what returns you can expect.

If you do give them a spin, I'd be very curious to hear what effective CPM rate you end up securing, as video ads are still a fairly new commodity in the indie web publishing scene.

Best of luck.
