Affiliates - What is an Affiliate?
Posted by nick_niesen on October 26th, 2010
I don't want to SELL anything. That said, how do I build my business?
That is the beauty of our program. YOU don't sell anything, WE do all the selling for you. Just enter the names and email addresses of the people you know personally online, and we'll send a personalized email to them, from YOU, which directs them to a fully personalized, dynamic flash presentation. If you prefer, you can alternatively send them directly to your free WebSite.ws Affiliate WebSite, which will be identical to the one you are looking at right now, but tracked to YOU, so you get the credit for all sign ups.
How can I see who signed up under me and how much commissions are owed to me?
You will have 24/7 access to REAL TIME REPORTING on all hits to your agent WebSite, all trials placed, and all active customers, as well as complete downline reporting, selectable by layer (1 through 5), and all current and past commissions due to you. You will also have contact information for your UPLINE SPONSORS, so you can email them and learn about their successes, as well as contact information for your DOWNLINE (network) members, so you may email them and tell them of your successful experiences.
As an Affiliate, do I need to send in any paperwork?
Yes. The required simple documentation can easily be accessed from within your account. However, you may begin building your business immediately.
What is the "Invite" section, and how do I use it?
The Invite section allows you to send customized emails to prospects, which must be people with whom you have had prior contact. You can also purchase opt-in email lists in the Leads section of your Members Area. Please note, we will not tolerate Spam of any kind from our affiliates. Violation of our Spam policy will result in immediate and permanent deactivation of your account without reimbursement.
What is an "Upline?"
Your upline is comprised of the people through which you were referred to our company. Your upline can be a valuable source of information for networking and brainstorming ways to increase your revenue.
What is a "Downline?"
Your downline is comprised of the people who were referred to our company through you. The people in your downline represent those for which you will earn commissions for purchases they make. Information in your downline is updated in real time so you always have the latest details available to you, 24/7.
How can I use the banners?
Banners allow you to place advertisements on your WebSites promoting our product offering. You will earn money whenever purchases are made with us by people who clicked on your banners.
How do I earn commissions?
It's simple. You earn commissions for any sale referred through your affiliate link up to five layers deep.
How often will I receive commissions?
Commission payouts are sent on or before the 15th of every month provided your commission balance meets your selected minimum payout amount. The lowest minimum payout limit you can select is $10 USD. Commission totals less than your selected minimum payout amount will be carried over until such time as your balance meets your selected minimum.
