What is Affiliate Marketing?
This is one of the most common questions we receive, and it’s actually quite simple:
Affiliate marketing is a way for you (the affiliate) to earn a commission for recommending Societal products to your friends or readers.
To simplify it, here’s the 5 step process for how to start affiliate marketing:
- You find a product you want to promote on Societal
- Sign up for our affiliate program
- You get a special link that allows Societal to track the people who clicked your link
- If they buy the product, you get a commission on the first purchase and all proceeding purchases made by that customer.
Pretty simple, right?
It can get much more advanced, but in this post, we’re just going to start with the fundamentals and get you to the point where you’re ready to make your first commission.
How Does Affiliate Marketing Work?
There are a lot of different ways to track affiliates these days, however Societal tracks customers via a cookie.
When an affiliate link is clicked, a small file called a cookie is stored on the users computer. Then they buy a product, Societal can see that they were referred by you.
There are also more advanced methods based on the email used or IP address – but we won’t get into those here.
Our affiliates and publishers are incredibly important to us. We approach all affiliates with respect and want to build a lasting relationship that is beneficial for everyone involved.
Whether you're a t-shirt addict, a social media guru, a blogging master needing some extra cash, it's time to get with the Societal affiliate program. As one of our partners you can help spread Societal love one commission at a time.
