Blue Penguin Affiliate program FAQ
Hello and thanks for your interest in the Blue Penguin affiliate program … a program that helps you earn commission by promoting Blue Penguin events, programs and products.
The concept of an affiliate program is simple:
- You sign up as an affiliate (it’s free).
- You tell people about our events, programs and products. You can do this via e-mail, through your web site, on your LinkedIn profiles, etc. (any electronic means, so that we can track your sales back to you).
- Any time a sale is made as a result of your efforts, we pay you a percentage-based commission, based on the retail price of whatever was purchased.
- Once a month we send you your money.
More details below…
What is an affiliate?
An affiliate is you – a person, organization or company that promotes our events, programs and products in exchange for a commission when that event is purchased.
What is a merchant?
That’s us. We produce and sell the things you promote. We take the payments, deliver the event, program or product to the people who buy them, and pay commission to affiliates based on the things that are purchased as a result of their efforts.
Do I have to pay anything to be an affiliate?
No. Becoming an affiliate is free.
Are there requirements to becoming an affiliate?
Yes, but it’s pretty easy. You need a valid e-mail address (so that we can get in touch with you) and a postal (snail mail) mailing address so we can send you your checks. Then you just need to promise that you won’t do anything bad, like commit fraud or use foul language in front of us.
What kind of computer skills are needed to become an affiliate?
Not much. Just cutting, pasting and clicking.
How much do I earn?
As an affiliate, you will earn 20% of the retail price of every event, program or product sold through your affiliate link. (Exception: “The Tactical and Practical Solo Professional Breakthrough Course” has a 10% commission.)
How do you track my sales?
The links you’ll use are specific to your account. Our system tracks which links lead to which sales and we use this information to determine affiliate payment amounts.
How and when do I get paid for the sales I generate?
We pay via check, mailed on the last day of each month for revenue generated during the prior month. (Exception: Affiliate commissions on “The Tactical and Practical Solo Professional Breakthrough Course” are paid out after 90 days). There’s a delay because we need to allow for any returns that might occur (refund requests are rare, but it can happen). Any refund due to returns will be deducted from your commissions.
Can I become an affiliate if I live outside the United States?
How long does it take to get started as an affiliate?
About 8 minutes, depending upon how fast you type. At the bottom of this page is a form. Scroll down, fill it out and click “Submit.” You’re in! Then check your in-box for a confirmation email. Any problems, just contact us.
