LeadRock would be a comfortable platform for both experienced affiliates and for beginners. The team supports affiliates at every step of the way, from choosing the best offer to configuring the elements and launching the campaign.
The platform is integrated with Keitaro tracker, but you can work with any other third-party solution or use the detailed statistics available in your dashboard.
LeadRock gives payout bumps to run long-term campaigns with the same offer, and provides landers and pre-landers, affiliates can also request creatives from a dedicated manager.
The network has more than 1,200 offers for a variety of international GEOs in its database. Spain, Italy, Romania, and Poland are the most trending GEOs at the moment.
Domain parking and API integration are available in the dashboard. If there is any issue with the platform or its features, LeadRock gives a heads-up and suggests possible solutions.

At the moment, LeadRock has more than 1,200 direct and resale offers. Any offer can be found in your dashboard, the database is updated every week. You can add offers to the network on your own, but you will have to contact your dedicated manager if you want a bigger frequency capping or wish to access a private offer.
The “News” section and the LeadRock Telegram channel provide affiliates with relevant information about the availability of offers.
The affiliate network has three available payout models: CPL, SS, COD. You can choose the model that suits you best.
LeadRock effects payments three times a week: on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. The first withdrawal comes with a hold period of up to 10 days. Available payment methods include WMZ, Qiwi, Yandex.Money, Wire Transfer, ePayments, PayPal, Capitalist. To choose a payment system, open the “Finance” section in your dashboard. The minimum payout threshold is $30.

The affiliate network holds monthly contests for affiliates. For instance, in October, LeadRock will present the iPhone 13 Pro Max to the affiliate with the top rank in the categories “Vigor” and “Europe”. The contest period is from October 1 to October 31, 2021.
LeadRock regularly improves the platform: the referral program has recently been updated, now you get 5% of the income of the invited affiliates, as well as bonuses and cash.
LeadRock is also preparing special Halloween offers and promotional materials for them. The themed selection and more detailed information will be posted at the end of October.
LeadRock is a unique affiliate network.
It’s not an attempt at flattery, since in my experience there is not a single affiliate network with the same choice of white-hat offers for the European GEOs. Other networks add white-hat e-commerce offers later than LeadRock, so I manage to get all out of the fresh offers even before they become available to others. First, this is due to the fact that LeadRock is a direct advertiser for many e-commerce products.
Almost all international networks focus on nutra offers. But this vertical is very difficult for beginners in affiliate marketing: constant bans, need for cloaking, etc. This can be very frustrating. White-hat e-commerce is a completely different story: easier approval, fewer bans, the creatives work longer. As a result, we get cheap leads and a high ROI. It also helps if the offer is fresh, lately I only see it with LeadRock.
LeadRock has the widest choice of offers for both beginners and experienced affiliates. The team also is very accommodating and can add offers upon request. For example, the well-known Renumax offer was already dead and gone with low conversion rates. LeadRock added its renamed version CarLuxe, and the offer took off again.
The choice of nutra offers is also very good, and payout rates are higher than with the competitors. For example, the Pearl mask rejuvenation offer has top rates in the segment.
When it comes to the payments — as I have mentioned, LeadRockis a direct advertiser for many products, so they can give excellent payout bumps. So I could continue running a campaign when it fell to break-even performance.
The support managers are always there, any issues are resolved promptly, there has never been such a time when I had to wait for several days or a week as it often happens in other networks. I often work at night, and I am very glad that the guys are in touch even outside working hours and I do not have to wait until the next business day to get an answer to an urgent question.
My review is objective, so let’s talk about some downsides.
The technical side of the matter is also top-notch. I would like to specifically highlight a useful feature that I have not seen anywhere else — I can download clean landing pages and use them right away without tinkering with the code.
Among the disadvantages — there were several instances when the notification about the offer freeze came out an hour in advance, and I did not have time to stop the campaigns. To the credit of the team, the situation had a positive outcome for me — they contacted the advertiser and negotiated for my leads to be processed anyway =)
These were the only disadvantages I can remember.
In September, I received email notifications that suggested that I change my password to better protect the data. It’s nice when the affiliate network cares about your security.
The regular polls among the affiliates about the choice of new offers are nice as well, especially when I see that my voice matters.
To sum it up: LeadRock is a reliable affiliate network, working with it is a pleasure. You can be sure that any issues will be dealt with, and you will be treated with respect. Those with a vision have already transferred the bulk of their campaigns to this network. Since dollar is a stable currency that does not depreciate by 20% over six months like some others, I am confident about my future and have no fear of any currency fluctuations =)
I will not sing praise to the team of this network.
In this review, I will talk about the LeadRock affiliate program itself. AND I DON’T RECOMMEND IT. I think, if you were in my shoes, you would do the same. For who would boast about their gold mine, so I will not tell you about the amazing conditions they have provided me with. With this affiliate network, I have fulfilled my most greedy desires, I have gratified my ego and loaded my wallet at the same time.
Recently, I threw away my beautiful Ikea mattress, because it was not enough to stash all the money I had earned, and I have found out that it is much more pleasant to sleep directly on money. Now I know what “The Wolf of Wall Street” felt like when he was enjoying spending the money in the most vicious ways. I made myself a God in this world, I easily fulfilled any whim of mine.
This is what working with the LeadRock affiliate network has brought into my life. Damn, I didn’t mean to tell you…
P.S. Forget all you have read, this affiliate network is mine!!!
I joined LeadRock by chance when I was inexperienced and was just looking for a vertical to start out in affiliate marketing. I knew some things, knew how to farm accounts, had affiliate marketers among friends. It was one of them who suggested running international traffic to e-commerce offers. During my time with LeadRock I have tested Forex vertical, lead generation, gambling, nutra (LeadRock offers as well), and a couple of private offers and other networks, but there was none so stable as LeadRock.
I joined LeadRock so long ago that my manager Sergey even got married, my congratulations once again!
Now the details:
There are many offers for the main European GEOs, recently they have added Latam, which is also good, but I personally have never been interested in Indonesia and the rest. But diversity is always great. Sometimes I get tired simply from choosing an offer: I keep scrolling and scrolling until Sergey comes to the rescue — he gives me a short list of suitable options. If I drive big volumes, I get a higher rate, which also complements the overall performance of my campaigns.
Withdrawal is available 3 times a week: Monday, Wednesday, Friday. There were some issues with withdrawals for some GEOs, but what is more important — it is all in the past, the team is much more experienced now. There were some funny moments, I once got a 2x withdrawal amount ($4,000 instead of $2,000). I thought it was a nice bonus, but the situation was resolved in the end. I don’t remember any real issues with payments, with each withdrawal the transfers get faster and faster.
There were issues, but not with the affiliate network itself, but with the advertiser. At some points, leads processing took very long or there were controversies with the statistics. Sergey also helped with this, and I often received compensations, again a special thanks to Sergey. Yesterday (12.10) I received compensation for a controversial issue that I have already forgotten about. It was a pleasant surprise.
I like the technical side of the process as well, since I prefer to work with fewer intermediaries. I choose an offer, make a creative, take a lander, make it work for my needs, configure the API, and launch the campaign. I’m not waiting for someone to share an application, to provide me with a link, etc. I’m not waiting for anyone, I just drive traffic. I do as much or as little as I want. This is a very big advantage since the result mostly depends on me.
As a result, I like this affiliate network the best out of the entire list of networks that I have registered with. Maybe there are better networks, but I have no desire to look for them. The main thing is to run many split-tests and to have faith when Facebook hits us with bans and updates once again. The LeadRock team will help you survive any crisis.
The total results of my work with LeadRock:
The withdrawal evidence:
LeadRock affiliate network updates the offer database regularly and allows affiliates to drive traffic from a variety of GEOs. The network provides favorable conditions: payouts three times a week via a slew of payment systems, a toolbox for setting up and running profitable campaigns, support of a dedicated manager.
