What is an affiliate program and how does it work?
An affiliate program is a way for you to earn a percentage of each online sale you refer. When you join this free program, you are given a special link with a unique referral code appended to share with your website audience. If a potential buyer clicks on your link and purchases Projecting X 2.0: How to Forecast Baseball Player Performance, you will receive a percentage of that sale.
The affiliate program is run through E-junkie, and your commission is sent to you via PayPal. For more detailed information about how E-junkie functions, please click here.
What percentage do I get for each sale?
Each sale you refer will earn you a 20% commission.
When do I get my commission?
Payments are made via PayPal on a monthly lump-sum basis and are sent out to affiliates for commissions earned during the previous month. For example, commission earnings for sales in January would be paid out by the end of February.
There is no minimum earnings amount an affiliate needs to reach before being eligible to receive payment. You will receive every commission you earn, even if you only receive one commission in a period.
How can I confirm each sale I refer to you?
When you log into E-junkie, you will be able to see who purchased Projecting X 2.0: How to Forecast Baseball Player Performance that you referred, and keep track of your total commissions earned. You can also set up notification emails to alert you when someone you referred purchases the eBook.
What happens if a potential buyer clicks on my affiliate link, but first decides to make a purchase two months later by visiting ProjectingX.com directly?
When a potential buyer initially clicks on your affiliate link, it creates a cookie in the buyer’s browser which expires in six months. If the buyer eventually decides to purchase Projecting X 2.0: How to Forecast Baseball Player Performance during the life of that cookie, you will still earn a commission, even if he goes directly to ProjectingX.com later without clicking through your link again.
What images can I use to help market Projecting X 2.0: How to Forecast Baseball Player Performance?
You can choose between the 3D cover or flat cover images below. For further customization or if you are interested in designing a banner ad, please contact the author at mike [at] projectingx.com.
Where should I place the image and affiliate link on my website?
The most effective method would be to write a blog post or article or a series of posts or articles discussing the book, while including your unique link. This form of marketing is more natural and less forced upon your readers. It should therefore result in better conversion rates. In addition, the image and link can be placed anywhere you would typically place an advertisement, whether in your header, sidebar or some other location.
Can I become an affiliate if I do not have a website or blog?
Of course! You just need to be a little more creative in getting your affiliate link out to the masses. Whether you choose to email family and friends, utilize your existing email list or post on a relevant message board that allows such links, there are multiple options for non-website owners. You can even go as far as purchasing advertising space on another website and using it to place the book image and affiliate link.
Do I have to share my affiliate relationship with my audience?
Yes, the Federal Trade Commission requires you, as an affiliate, to disclose your status wherever you include your unique link. Aside from abiding by law, your readers will appreciate your honesty and maintain their trust in your site.
