BIG changes to the TGN Affiliate Program
September 2, 2014 8:30:00 AM EDT
Hey bloggers!! Are you a TGN Affiliate? If not, you definitely should read this post! TGN has an awesome affiliate program that just became even MORE awesome.
If you don't know what an affiliate program is, start here. Long story short, it's a super easy way to monetize your blog (make money). When you become part of the affiliate program, you get a unique affiliate tracking code. This unique code is then embedded in banners you place on your website or links you share with your followers. If purchases are made through your links, you'll earn 5% of the sale!
There have been some pretty big changes to the TGN Affiliate Program recently... changes we think you're gonna really like!
Create Links and Manage Banners with Ease
It couldn't be easier to add banners to your website or create affiliated links! Banners are ready to go with your unique id already built into them. Just pick your favorite and put it on your site. To create links, simply copy and paste the specific link from TGN's website (where you want to send your readers) into the box and click "Get Link". Doing so creates a link with your unique affiliate ID built into it!
Better Reports and View of Activity
Another great change to our affiliate program is that you can now see the specifics of your affiliate sales! You will actually be able to see what items were purchased through your links and your commission!
Payments through PayPal
With the TGN Affiliate program, earnings become active once the order has shipped. When you reach the $20 minimum to withdraw, you can receive your payment by check or through PayPal. With PayPal, you can transfer the payment to your bank from the comfort of your home. For the TGN Affiliate program, there is only a $1 fee for each PayPal withdraw, regardless of amount!
Use Earnings as Store Credit
You can now use earnings as store credit at checkout if you wish! There will be a place under the rewards toggle to use them. There is no minimum for using your earnings as store credit!
You know how we said you'll earn 5% *or more* of every sale? Well here's where *or more* comes into play... every so often we'll run special campaigns where we raise the commision rate! More cash in your pocket. It's a good thing!
Another great "every-so-often" feature of the new affiliate program is that you'll be able to offer special coupon codes to your followers. Everyone loves a deal! When your followers use the special code to place orders, you'll receive commissions. Your followers get a deal, you get paid. Win, win!
Coming soon... Tier Affiliates!
Earning really doesn't get much easier than this... with this soon-to-come feature, you'll be able to invite other affiliates to sign up with a link that contains a special tracking code. If you recruit new affiliates, you'll earn a small commission of that new affiliate's sales... just for bringing them on!!
