Affiliators nuts and bolts
by Affiliators on 10 Sep 2010 permalink
How much commission can I make?
Your commission is 30% of the subscription sold.
How is my commission paid?
You need to register an account with PayPal and tell us the email to which we can send funds to. It doesn't need to be the same email used to open your affiliators account.
How often is my commission paid?
We will wait 30 days after the sale went through in case the customer is unhappy and claims a refund.
Can I advertise my pages with affiliators links on Google?
There is nothing to stop you from doing that. If you have made your sums by all means go ahead. Remember though that the whole concept of affiliators is to operate outside of Google's monopoly and to provide an alternative marketing channel. If you have a significant internet presence you can get a financial return through affiliators. That presence was most likely established through your interaction in social media and your reputation as a blogging expert in a given field.
What products/services can I promote through affiliators?
The list is available on affiliators products page.
Where can my affiliators links be displayed?
In short, anywhere you have the right to publish content. Typically that would be any of your websites and blogs. It can also be your facebook page (this process is automated through our facebook affiliators application) it can be your twitter account (affiliators targets featuring a regularly updated blog can be posted through our StreamPublish Twitter application). Your affiliators link can be in an email or a blog comment but unless you have valid reasons to do that it will be considered as spam and will result in you being blacklisted - not a good idea.
Are there any other income opportunities?
Through aptitude-test.info you may design tests in a field where you have some expertise. Each time people sit for that test and pay for it you will get a commission.
Will my friends find out I have a financial interest in promoting through affiliators?
Both Facebook and Twitter place a link back to our application at the end of the post. This is not something we can control but why be shy about it? Unlike many network marketing opportunities where you have to be overbearing to promote the scheme to people, affiliators is all above board - you do not have to recruit anybody. Web surfers will click if they want to find out more. They will appreciate you for sharing a good idea if it seems good to them too. They will check out the products/services involved or open an affiliators account on their own will - not being pressured by anybody.
How often will affiliators write on my Facebook wall or Twitter page?
Affiliators does not write on your social media pages by itself. Only when you go to the affiliators website and choose a target to promote will it get your account credentials and perform the post of your choice. There are several landing pages for each site to offer some variety. For the sites which offer a regularly updated blog the latest article will be posted.
What happens if the visitor I direct to an affiliators target site does not buy straight away but revisits the same website a week or so later?
Affiliators uses a technology called cookies to remember your affiliators ID. You can check this out by clicking on one of your links (there is no penalty for doing this unlike with Google AdSense ads). Close the browser and revisit the site, setup an account if required and go all the way to the PayPal page where you will see your affiliators ID at the top left under the banner logo. (This is easy to check with photoexhibition.biz where visitors do not need to setup their own trial account first.)
