Getting Started as an Affiliate?
The AWeber affiliate program has been around for over ten years and has been central in our success as an email marketing service.
Let’s take a closer look at what it means to be an affiliate and how you can make money promoting AWeber.
Well, What is Affiliate Marketing?
In a very basic sense, affiliate marketing is receiving a commission from a business (in this case, AWeber) for “bringing in” a customer, who then makes a purchase. Once that customer has purchased, you are paid for the sale.
Your role with AWeber is to refer customers to our service, who then purchase an AWeber customer account. When that purchase is made, you get a commission from AWeber.
Also, you receive a commission from the same account every time that customer pays us. So if an affiliate is making steady payments to us, you receive a commission for every payment they make.
Getting started with your affiliate campaign can be done quickly and easily. Let’s take three steps to get your campaign up and running.
UNDERSTAND Your AWeber Affiliate URL
Right off the bat, let’s sign in to your AWeber affiliate account, using the affiliate ID and password we have sent to your email address.
This is your unique affiliate ID number assigned to you by Aweber.
Your affiliate URL is your “lifeline” to Aweber. We use it to directly track your affiliate sales. When someone clicks on that link and is taken to AWeber, we know that it is you who referred them.
Also if that same person purchases an account, we know we should credit your affiliate account with the commission.
Your affiliate URL can be placed anywhere you can write text or html. Some examples of places your affiliate URL can be placed are:
- Your Email Signature
- In the text of your website or blog
- Sent via chat or email message
- Behind a clickable image on your website
- As the affiliate link in a YouTube video
The possibilities of where you can place your AWeber affiliate URL are limited only by your imagination.
