WHAT IS AFFILIATE MARKETING, AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
Affiliate Marketing is a way for you to earn money by promoting your favorite Hemp Sacred products. It’s a performance based advertising program where online publishers, which can include social media influencers, bloggers, etc, can earn a commission on orders submitted by customers they refer to an online merchant, in this case HempSacred.Com.
They do this by creatively integrating HempSacred.Com’s products or content via blogs, product reviews, banner advertisements, and on social media, among other methods, get creative. The tracking process is simple. Once in the HempSacred.Com affiliate program, affiliates can create affiliate links to HempSacred.Com.
When that link is clicked by a visitor to that affiliates website, a tracking cookie is plantedonthat user’s computer. When that same visitor completes a purchase at HempSacred.Com, that cookie is used to apply credit for that sale to the affiliate’s account. For our program the cookie is good for 30 days meaning if someone clicks your link and places an order 29 days from now you will still get credit for the sale.
HOW DO I BECOME AN AFFILIATE?
The first step to become a HempSacred.Com affiliate is creating an account with our third party affiliate network LeadDyno. You can begin this process by clicking here. From there you’ll get access to your login credentials and can login to your account and create your affiliate links as well as get access to creatives ie banners we’ve put together for you.
HOW IS MY AFFILIATE ACCOUNT MANAGED
Your account will be managed by us through a third party affiliate management platform called LeadDyno. Lead Dyno is the software we use to manage the program and track your clicks. You can assure everything is tracked accurately as it’s through an independent third party.
ARE THERE ANY COSTS ASSOCIATED WITH JOINING THE PROGRAM?
No it’s completely free to create an account with HempSacred.Com through our Lead Dyno program. Because there’s no charge there’s no risk with getting involved.
DO I HAVE TO HAVE A WEBSITE TO BECOME AN AFFILIATE?
No. While our top-performing affiliates typically drive traffic from a website or blog, it’s not required nor necessary. If you have a strong social media presence, are good with e-mail marketing, or like blogging on a platform like Medium for example you could be a successful affiliate.
WHAT KIND OF ACTIVITY IS PROHIBITED IN THE AFFILIATE PROGRAM
Affiliates may not run paid ads using our brand name/s including Hemp Sacred, HempSacred.Com, Sacred Hemp, or anything similar involving our brand or name in keywords. We also do not allow coupon sites to participate in the program as we’ve found those affiliates are not bringing us any sales we would otherwise not get on our own. Unlike many affiliate programs we do allow our affiliates to use the affiliate program on their own purchases and/or dropshipped purchases.
HOW MUCH ARE COMMISSIONS?
All new affiliates will earn 10% of all traffic to the site they drive which results in a conversion/purchase. We are willing to work with top performing affiliates on offering increased commissions. This will be evaluated on a case by case basis.
HOW LONG IS THE COOKIE PERIOD?
A cookie is what’s placed on a internet surfers computer when they click on a link you put in a blog or on social media. Many popular affiliate programs only offer a session based or 24 hour cookie. We offer a 30 day cookie meaning if someone clicks your link and comes back to purchase 29 days later you’ll still be credited with the sale. We also utilize a first cookie wins the sale which means the first person to drive a visitor to our site earns that sale if a sale should occur within the next 30 days.
HOW OFTEN WILL I GET PAID?
All transactions for each month lock on the 1st of the following month and are paid out to affiliates around the 20th of the month. The minimum payout is $25 USD. You must earn $25 in order to receive a payout. This is to alleviate us from the expense of having to pay to send payments of $1 or $3 to affiliates not producing a lot of sales. This is a relatively modest amount as most affiliate programs have a $100 payout minimum.
DO I HAVE TO LIVE IN THE USA TO BE A HEMPSACRED.COM AFFILIATE?
No, we welcome affiliates from all over the world.
