Introducing CJ Spotlight: A New Way to Share Our Expertise with You

May 12, 2021
Written by CJ

At CJ, relationships grow where great people meet great products. We’re excited to announce a new platform feature that allows us to share our expertise with you: CJ Spotlight.

CJ Spotlight is an enhancement to our Recruit Partners tool that gives advertisers the ability to filter their partner searches by Spotlight-badged publishers that aren’t yet joined to their program, putting the expertise of our world-class Publisher Development team into the hands of all advertisers in the CJ Network. Advertisers can now easily identify pre-vetted publishers who’ve been specially selected by CJ based on a set of standards that ensure trustworthiness, active network engagement, and a readiness to connect with new brands.


Perks for Publishers in the Spotlight

While advertisers benefit from recommended partnerships at the click of a button, this feature will also boost visibility and partnership opportunities for qualified publishers—whether they’re brand new or tried and true:

Solving an Age-Old Partnership Dilemma for New Publishers

The internet is full of high-potential publishers who all face the same dilemma when entering the affiliate space: How do I prove my value as a new partner and start working with brands? Publishers in the Spotlight get immediate visibility with advertisers of all sizes to expedite ramp-up time, making it easier for qualified partners who are new to the network or affiliate monetization to make connections.

Highlighting Continuous Innovation from Existing Partners 

The Spotlight assists existing CJ publishers by giving renewed visibility to partners who are offering additional promotional opportunities, such as introducing a newsletter, social media account, or launching into a new global market.


What Else Is New with Recruit Partners?

It’s our goal to continuously improve the recruitment experience for all partners and we’re always looking for ways to incorporate feedback. As such, we’ve added even more exciting functionality to the recently overhauled Recruit Partners page:

  • Share Curated Publisher Lists: Copy and share a private URL with your publisher selections or email the list directly to colleagues (login required for viewing).
  • Save Your Favorites for Later: Easily view and revisit your top recruits. A new dropdown allows you to filter by favorited publishers. You’ll also have a new column (Favorites) to easily add publishers as favorites and identify which publishers you already love.
  • “Multi-Select” and Pagination: With so many publishers to choose from, these features make your recruitment efforts more streamlined than ever.


We love sharing the Spotlight! Go forth and filter! 😊
