ABOUT US: Our mission is to empower everyone to build their own beautiful, healthy, and energy efficient straw bale house. We have been teaching people hands on as well as through our full line of educational videos how to build their own shelter since 2004. We are proud of the work that we do and strive to make a difference in making this world a healthier and happier place to live in.
ABOUT THE AFFILIATE PROGRAM: The www.StrawBale.com Associate and Affiliate program is free to join and you can instantly generate an ongoing stream of income for yourself without any cost or obligation. You must own and/or operate a website to take part in this program.
You can get paid referral fees for simply linking to any one of our sites or our commercial site www.StrawBale.com/store, which is designed to sell our series of instructional How-To Straw Bale programs. At this site we sell comprehensive instructional straw bale DVDs, straw bale building plans, a book, and 7 day hands on workshops. It is with these products that we can establish a mutually profitable relationship.
By simply placing links or banners that we provide you on your website, you get paid referral fees for every piece sold. We will pay you 25% of gross sales for every physical product that you sell (DVDs, plans, etc.). Further, we will pay $100 per full paying participant that signs up for our straw bale workshops.
At the end of the month we pay all affiliates via Paypal so be sure to have a Paypal account before signing up. You can check your affiliate account at any time to see how sales are going.
The affiliate program is two-tiered. If you sign someone else up for our affiliate program you can earn an additional 5% commission from their sales too.
How does it work?
We are using one of the most sophisticated shopping cart systems available on the web. When you register for the program the cart generates a unique affiliate code that you will use to create specially formatted URLs that you will use to link through to the Straw Bale Shop on our site (don’t worry, we have written specific directions of how to do this after you have signed up). These URLs are unique to you and our system can track your referral fees as they are earned. This system is so sophisticated that even if you refer a client to our site and they leave and come back in 6 months you will get credit for the sale.
Upon registering you will be given your unique code, and a link to a special page that will show you how many customers referred by you have purchased products. You will receive e-mail notification after each sale. You will receive your commission payment via Paypal on a monthly basis as long as the amount is over $50.00. If it is less than $50.00 we will roll-over the amount until your affiliate commission reaches $50.00. Note that all orders must be placed online.
Here’s what we will provide:
Complete instructions for setting up multiple links on your website to the Straw Bale Shop using your unique associate code.
Complete instructions of how to send your customers to specific sales pages for specific products.
An in-depth sales tips section that will coach you on how to make the most of this affiliate program, so you can make more money.
We look forward to working with you! If you have any questions, please feel free to email us firstname.lastname@example.org.
