Affiliates! New News!
It’s with a huge amount of excitement that I FINALLY get to announce a MAJOR update to my affiliate program – that is designed to make YOU more money.
I know this may be a little long, but please keep reading because this will help you understand how to make the most money from the things I’ll be releasing!
First of all, you can find/register for the affiliate program here: http://affiliates.just-ask-kim.com/ and you will find links in the “ads” tab once you are logged in.
I’ve spent a couple of months working with the developer to get the affiliate deck to CHANGE how it tracks. (Don’t worry, all of your existing cookies are still good!)
The platform is (and remains) a “last touch cookie” system – which means that the most recent person to send the click, before the sale, gets the payment credit if there is no other information.
What we have ADDED is “Lifetime Database Buyer Locking“. This may be a new term to you – but it’s one that makes smart affiliates a LOT of money (because you get credit for a lot more sales in the long run).
This means that the above process is what happens on the persons very first purchase from one of my sites.
On the persons SECOND purchase by that buyers email address – the cookie is ignored – and the database tells the system which affiliate this person “belongs to”. All subsequent purchases by this customer are credited to this “locked” affiliate – EVEN IF THE CUSTOMER CLEARS THEIR COOKIES!
Given that cookies are notoriously super-unreliable and prone to being wiped regularly when a browser hiccups… cookies have been a weak link for affiliates. (That said though, my cookies for you are still 365 days, so if the person does NOT wipe their cookies, your tracked for a full year!)
While I have 4 websites – all tracked from the same affiliate deck above – and all using their own cookies – once someone buys from one of them – if they later buy from any of the others, you’re going to get credit for that too! (Even though it’s on a different domain, the locking will still handle it in your favor.)
I’m in the process of getting all of the sales pages adapted and everything in place on some of the older products together.
What *IS* together for you today is my Pump Up Gmail ebook that everyone has given raving reviews! (If you’ve read it – I’d love if you’d comment below and let others know what you thought!)
This is a $17 ebook that gives you a really easy selling point to help you make that first sale and get those leads locked!
I’ll be re-releasing my WP Blog Setup packages – and several other SERVICES – and all of them will use the same locking. So you might sell an ebook… and wind up getting paid on a MUCH bigger sale!
You’ve likely heard me talk repeatedly about the benefit of Lifetime Database Buyer Locking – and now I’m bringing that power… right to your WALLET!
In the upcoming weeks, I will be releasing (and adding to the affiliate deck – for you to promote) a number of products. Some will be PLR rebundled. Some will be brand new creations. And (as mentioned) some will be new services!
Plus, with the structure of the YouCanDoItTraining.com/shop website (once I finish the new construction – I’m working on it right now) – people will be able to wander through the site and “sell themselves” on some new items too!
As a quick reminder, digital products pay a 50% commission on the sale price. Services will pay about 20% but it will depend on the service. I’ll keep you posted as I add and configure these. Payouts are via PayPal and are on the month that begins a minimum of 30 days after the sale is final.
If you have made repeated sales for me before – or have an established and verified active marketing list – you’re welcome to contact me for a review copy of most of the products as they release. (If you send me a PM, also let me know directly to check for it, in case it goes to other. I don’t want you to think I’m ignoring ya!)
Something else that is coming, to help you out, will be the ability to add your affiliate ID to the tail end of any of my tracked websites in order to set your cookie even when you refer to blog posts, resources, and more. I’ll have more details for you on that when it’s live.
All of this is designed so that you and I can work together in a much more consistent basis and so that you get the full value out of the individuals on your (very precious) list that you recommend to buy from me.
Too many affiliates today wind up blowing out their lists by referring traffic to high pressure marketers that only award for the first sale and not for subsequent ones.
Don’t let poor tracking, wimpy cookies, or greedy marketing keep you from earning what you’re worth when you give your very precious recommendation – to check out my stuff – to your readers.
Lets make us both some money!
