What is an affiliate program?

An affiliate program is simply an internet based referral system where you recommend products or services to other people and you get paid a commission when they make a purchase.

All you need to do with our Affiliate Program is send visitors to our website using the promotional tools that we provide.

These tools contain your affiliate link which means that when someone makes a purchase, the sale is recorded as coming from you and you get paid a high percentage of the sale.

How much does it cost me to join?

Our Affiliate Program is FREE to join and you can profit immediately with zero risk. There’s NEVER any cost to you.

When do I get paid?

Sales are calculated monthly from the first day of the month to the last day of the month. You get paid on or before the 10th of each month for the previous month sales.

Immediately after payment you’ll receive an email confirming that you’ve been paid and the amount of commissions paid.

Please note that we have a £25 minimum payout balance. If you earn less than £25 during a month, the amount that you earn will be carried forward to the next month. Once your total commissions total £25 or more your payment will be issued.

How do I get paid?

All affiliates are paid using PayPal which is an extremely safe, easy, and secure method of payment. You don’t even need to provide your bank details because all we need to make payments to you is your PayPal email address.

Paying you by PayPal is much better and safer than sending cheques because of the following:

  • Instant payments – No waiting for the cheque to arrive, and then waiting again for the cheque to clear
  • Online payments – No missing cheques in the post and then having to wait for another cheque to be reissued

If you don’t already have a PayPal account, you can sign up for free either before or after joining our Affiliate Program. Here’s the link to join PayPal: www.paypal.com

How long does it take to sign up?

The sign-up process takes just a few minutes. There are no long surveys or endless forms to fill out.

In just a few minutes you can be signed up and you’ll have immediate access to all our promotional tools and resources where you’ll find everything you need to get started.

How do I sign up?

Getting started is easy. Simply click here to register for our Affiliate Program.

Immediately after registering you’ll receive a welcome email with your password which you can use to log-in to our Affiliate Program right away.

You can then view all our promotional tools and resources which are designed to help you make money quickly and be highly successful.

What promotional tools are available?

We provide a wide range of promotional tools which include banners, email promotions, product reviews, classified ads, text links, and product images.

These tools have been specially designed and developed to help you get maximum results from your affiliate program. The variety of tools available also provides you with lots of flexibility to promote our website and products in a way that best suits you.

We would also be more than happy to speak with you once you’ve registered for our Affiliate Program to discuss the specific tools that would produce the best results with your unique website.

What tracking methods do you use?

When a visitor clicks on one of your links and visits our website they are tracked as coming from you. When these visitors purchase any of our products over the next 3 years we pay you a high percentage of the sale.

The tracking technology that we use for our Affiliate Program is extremely advanced because we know how important it is that you have the most reliable and highest quality tracking available.

The 3 methods of tracking that we use to ensure that you get credit for every single sale you generate are:

  • Flash cookie tracking (reliably tracks more than 98% of all Internet users)
  • Browser cookie tracking
  • IP address tracking

This combination of tracking methods is simply the most advanced tracking system available, and it provides you with maximum possible reliability.

Why is Flash cookie tracking so powerful?

Flash cookie tracking is the strongest and most accurate tracking method available. It reliably tracks more than 98% of all Internet users.

This is the main reason why Flash cookie tracking is used by many of the world’s most reputable and successful Internet businesses such as Google, Yahoo, Microsoft, BBC, Amazon, eBay, PayPal, and YouTube.

Another big advantage of Flash cookie tracking is cross browser support. For example, if a visitor came to our website via Internet Explorer and they later ordered one of our products using Firefox, then you still get credit for the sale. This is because Flash cookies are the same across all browsers.

One last reason why Flash cookie tracking is extremely reliable is because the vast majority of Internet users don’t know how to clear these cookies. Even if the user were to clear their browser cookies they would still be tracked by Flash cookies and you still get credit for your sales.

How will I know how many of each product I sold?

You receive automatic email notifications as soon as you make a sale, or your sub-affiliates make a sale.

You can also log-in to your affiliate program and view all statistics as they happen such as impressions, clicks, and sales, as well as sub-affiliate statistics.

This information along with the easy to use reports that we provide means that you can obtain an accurate snapshot or analysis of your affiliate program’s performance at any time.

What products can I promote and what commissions do I get?

Here are the products you can be promoting in just moments and earning hefty commissions on)…

Running and Weight Loss for Beginners - A step-by-step guide to developing a great running and fitness base. Lose weight, get fitter, feel much healthier, and see exciting changes to your body shape.

Selling Price: £19.95
Commission: 50%

Running and Weight Loss Advanced Program - Shows you how to reach your desired weight in the quickest and most efficient manner by using a variety of highly effective running methods.

Selling Price: £19.95

Affiliate Gets: £10

In addition to these commissions, you also get 50% commissions on upsells that a customer accepts when making a purchase.

Do I receive commissions on all of your products?

Yes. Even after one of your referred visitors makes a purchase they are still tracked as coming from you.

When these customers purchase any of our products over the next 3 years, or they purchase new products developed within this time, you are still credited with the sales.

You simply refer the visitor once and get paid commissions on all current and future products that they purchase over the next 3 years.

What is a 2-tier affiliate program?

Our Affiliate Program is a 2-tier program which provides you with extra earning potential.

When you refer other affiliates to our Affiliate Program we pay you 5% of ALL the sales they make. You can therefore make money from your own sales as well as from the sales of other affiliates.

Where do I send affiliates to on your website?

You can send visitors to any page on our website and they are always tracked as coming from you.

This provides you with plenty of flexibility because you can link to pages such as our sales pages, blog, or articles. The visitors you send are always tracked and you always get credited for your sales.

Generally you’ll receive more sales when you link directly to a sales page, especially when you provide a personal recommendation for the product.

However, it’s also very useful to link to other pages on our website that provide other valuable and useful information. That way you build a reputation for helping your visitors by directing them to useful information rather than always directing them to sales pages.

Remember that it’s always better for your reputation and number of sales if you are seen more as a trusted Advisor than a Salesperson.

What type of links can I use to send visitors to your website?

To provide you with maximum flexibility there are two types of links you can use to send visitors to our website. These are:

  • Your affiliate link
  • Direct Linking

Direct Linking - With this unique linking and tracking method you can link directly to our website from your website without needing to use your Referral ID in your links and the sales are still tracked as coming from you.

For example, instead of using:
http://www.runningandweightloss.com/#refid – where refid is your Referral ID

You can just use:
http://www.runningandweightloss.com

Direct Linking works by recognising which page visitors come to our website from. When visitors come from your website, our advanced tracking technology recognises these visitors as being referred by you and you are credited for the sales.

This type of linking provides you with several important benefits which are:

  • Your affiliate links will not be recognised as being promotional in nature which results in more click throughs and more sales
  • Your affiliate link cannot be damaged or removed by your visitors
  • You don’t have to worry about adding your Referral ID to your links

Please note that Direct Linking URL’s require our approval before use.

How will my visitors order?

We take care of everything. All you need to do is direct visitors to our website through your affiliate links and we’ll take care of the rest.

When your visitors are ready to purchase they will complete our secure online order form and the sale is immediately credited to you.

We then look after delivering the product via digital download, and we also provide after sales customer service and support to ensure that all customers have a high quality experience.

Your visitors will remember you for recommending high quality products that also have high quality customer service and support. This will increase their trust in you even more which means that they’ll be much more likely to purchase other products that you recommend.

How much money can I expect to make?

The amount of money that you make depends on several factors such as the type of people that visit your website, how many visitors you receive, and how much you promote our website and products on your website.

For example, websites that have links to our website and products in many places throughout their websites do MUCH better than websites that only have a small link or just one link throughout their website.

Overall, it’s your own marketing efforts that determine how much money you make, but it’s certainly possible to earn a part-time or full-time income every month with our Affiliate Program.

Do I need to be an expert to use your affiliate program?

Not at all. The more you learn about Affiliate Marketing the more successful you’ll be, but you don’t need to be anywhere near an expert to have success with our Affiliate Program.

Our Affiliate Program is very easy to use, and as soon as you join you are able to login and start promoting our products right away.

You have everything you need including a "Getting Started" section which provides useful information to help you get off to a quick start.

What kind of support do you offer?

We pride ourselves in offering fantastic support. Remember that your success is our success and it’s in our best interests for you to be wildly successful.

That’s why we treat you as an important "partner" in our business.

If you have any questions or need any extra support then just let us know by sending an email to affiliates@runningandweightloss.com and we’ll do our best to help.
