(b) Influencer Page. This Influencer Program may include an Amazon Site influencer page registered through Amazon and assigned to you (“Influencer Page”). With respect to Special Links that direct customers to your Influencer Page, the related Session will be measured as beginning when our customer clicks through to your Influencer Page. The Influencer Page is a “Service Offering” for all purposes under the Agreement. With respect to any text, pictures, compilations, lists, comments or other data or content you submit to Amazon in connection with the Influencer Program (“Influencer Content”), you will not submit such Influencer Content if it violates any standard included in Section 1 of the Participation Requirements.
If you have identified merchants for whom you think you could generate substantial revenue through an affiliate marketing relationship, there’s no reason not to attempt to set up a direct relationship. There’s also not much magic to pursuing this type of arrangement; if there isn’t a pre-existing relationship, start by reaching out to your potential partner and telling them a bit about your site.
On the surface, all that looks great. But these are the same things we see in every high-ticket membership program. Done for you systems, automated sales funnel and personal coaching. Personal coaching especially is something i see all the time in products similar to SAN. And it is always promoted the same way. As the key component that will make all the difference and help you achieve your goals. But that is rarely the case.
There are basically 2 ways to join SAN. For $1 there is a 30-day trial and after that is $47/month for as long as you remain a member. Or you can skip the $1 trial and join for $37/month. That way you can save $10 every month. That is also the reason some people get confused about how much it really costs to join SAN. You must know though that if you choose the $1 trial and decide you don’t want to continue you must cancel your membership or you will be charged $47 after the trial expires. 

There are better ways to make money online that won’t cost you an arm and a leg. So, despite the fact that the owner is a successful online marketer the training is incomplete. I doubt you will earn any money if you only buy the Basic Membership. There are other legit online training centers that are not only cheaper but also provide better training.
The huge advantage of email over social media is that prospects and customers are more likely to see an email than social media. Just posting something doesn't mean that everyone you want to see your message will see it. Your post might not even show up in your targets' social media streams. However, an email will sit in the inbox until it's read (or deleted). 
The main difference between referral and affiliate marketing programs is that a referral program is a program where you're structuring it for your customers to refer people they know and an affiliate program is structured for people that have not used your product or service themselves to promote it to people they don't know in exchange for a commission.

If you would like to take a more subtle approach, include a product or service from your company that relates into your blog post. For example, let’s say that you are a wine connoisseur and that is what your blog is based around. In any post that is enticing your readers to open up a good bottle of Merlot or what have you, it would be wise to embed an ad for a quality, easy-to-use wine opener, wine glasses or stoppers that keep the wine fresh.
And you don't want them to forget about you. That's the main thing. As I mentioned earlier, everybody is split doing a million things. So you've got to remind them, because maybe they just forgot they're an affiliate. Maybe they're saying, "Okay, that's right, I forgot. I can get on the ball. I've got some friends that could utilize this product or service."

Affiliate marketing is a great place to start when you are looking to make money online.  Other than the cost of a webpage and your time, it is very low cost to get started. There are many business opportunities that promote affiliate marketing.  Some of these business opportunities are scams.  My subscribers have requested that I take a look into The Super Affiliate Network. They are concerned that it has a lot of similarities with the recently shutdown Digital Altitude and MOBE scams. Here is what I have found.

Offering a giveaway to a micro-influencer in the space. Micro-influencers make for great partners as their audience base is highly engaged. Offering a promotional giveaway to a micro-influencer allows them to create exciting content on their site while giving one of their readers the chance to win a product/service/monetary value from your company. It’s a win-win for everyone!
Significant emphasis must be put on quality partnership building. It may be tempting to let as many partners into your program as possible, however, leads should be evaluated for quality, not volume. You want to avoid running into the issue of letting just anyone into your lead gen campaign and then discover that their efforts aren’t brand-aligned or delivering the types of leads you want. Focusing on volume over quality negatively impacts two things: the experience your affiliates have and the conversion rate of your program.Having a few partners in your lead generation-focused affiliate program who drive high-value traffic at a steady volume is much better than dealing with fraudulent lead issues among partners each month.
Despite its older origins, email marketing is still a viable source of affiliate marketing income. Some affiliates have email lists they can use to promote the seller’s products. Others may leverage email newsletters that include hyperlinks to products, earning a commission after the consumer purchases the product. Another method is for the affiliate to cultivate email lists over time. They use their various campaigns to collect emails en masse, then send out emails regarding the products they are promoting.
Find your affiliates and affiliate programs in all the right places --As humans, many of us hope to inherently trust one another. We’d like to believe that someone’s word is good. That a check will cash. That we’ll again see the man who said he’d pay us tomorrow. If you’ve spent even a smidgeon of time working as a freelancer, you know this isn’t always the case. People pay late, if at all. You turn in work, and the source contests it. In order to avoid disappointment and fraud, make sure you are using a legitimate network to find both merchants and affiliates.
You must remove from your Site any links and related references to limited time promotions as soon as that promotion on the relevant Amazon Site ends. For example, if you include links to Products in the apparel category of an Amazon Site and mention that there is 15% off select products in Amazon’s apparel category, you must remove the mention of the 15% discount from your Site as soon as the promotion ends.
I cannot tell you everything about becoming a super affiliate in eight paragraphs. I could write numerous articles about networking skills or sales strategies, far too much for this small space. However, I have given you a glimpse into how the super affiliate system works. Everyone promotes everyone for the benefit of all. You just have to prove yourself worthy of your invitation.

One of the key elements to success with affiliate marketing is picking the right products to promote. They could be digital information products, memberships, physical products, online services… there are many industries that use this model. When promotiing to your target market, you may be promoting one or many of these different types of products as an affiliate.

We may change your Account Identifiers or Data Feed Access ID from time to time. An Account Identifier that is a private key or a Data Feed Access ID that is a password is for your personal use only, and you must maintain its secrecy and security. You may not sell, transfer, sublicense, or otherwise disclose your private key or password to any other person or entity. An Account Identifier that is a public key or a Data Feed Access ID that is a username is not secret.
That's what inspired us to create the first in the world CPA community, namely CPA Partners Hub. This means that it's a certain center responsible for all aspects of interaction, which protects both our partners and customers. This allows us to concentrate completely on the market, so our partners may not worry about their reputation and ROI (return on investments).
Many people have issues with the amount charged for the pro membership which is actually quite high. There is no clear idea of what the company is actually offering. Why would you spend so much money on a product or service if the company is not bothered to offer a dedicated product/service page? If you go through the website, you will realize that something is fishy as the company is not offering a separate page that lists products and services. You are basically getting redirected and forced to watch videos for knowing what the services are actually all about.
For sites looking to monetize their existing traffic through affiliate marketing, a major determinant of success is picking the right offers to run. The difference in earnings from a bad offer and a good one can be enormous. Unfortunately, finding the “right” offer isn’t exactly easy; if you’re using an affiliate marketing network such as Commission Junction (now part of Conversant), SharesASale, or LinkShare, you will have literally thousands of affiliate offers available to you.
PPC advertising on popular search engines is another option that can help drum up some traffic to your website. There are a few rules when it comes to PPC, such as, you always need to have your own website to direct the traffic to and your website can’t just act as a ‘bridge page’ to the advertisers website. Think about using PPC to get more people to your website and then capture those visitors via email subscriptions or other methods, to market to later.
(b) You will not sell, resell, redistribute, sublicense, or transfer any Program Content or any application that uses, incorporates, or displays any Program Content, PA API, or Data Feeds. For example, you will not use, or enable, or facilitate the use of Program Content on or within any application, platform, site, or service (including social networking sites) that requires you to sublicense or otherwise give any rights in or to any Program Content to any other person or entity, nor will you create links formatted with your Associates tag for, or display such links on, a site that is not your Site.

You must use both a unique public key/private key pair (each key pair, an “Account Identifier”) and an Associates tag parameter (which can be either the Associate ID issued to you under the Amazon Associates Program or a related Associates Program tracking ID) to identify your account and make calls to PA API. You may obtain your Account Identifiers through PA API account creation process.


One huge red flag is any company that promises you a “get rich quick” marketing strategy. Although affiliate marketing can be good money, it’s by no means instantaneous. Stay away from anything that sounds too good to be true. Also, stay away from any merchant that wants to charge you startup costs. Additionally, use established affiliate programs to find your merchants. Read reviews and ask around. You’re not the only person trying to supplement income with this marketing strategy, so there are plenty of other professionals with whom to crowdsource.
Affiliate marketing allows you to make money online, even if you don’t have a blog, website, or any products of your own. Following a few simple steps can get you up and running within hours and earning your first commissions right away. Affiliate marketing really is one of the fastest and easiest ways to make money online and should be a part of every online business owner's portfolio.
Affiliates can also help your company tap into new audiences and reposition inventory so that it is relevant to them. For example, perhaps your site is entirely in English, with no exposure to the Hispanic market. One of your affiliates may translate your copy into Spanish and target that market, thus bringing new customers to you. Such a tactic — translating text — would be expensive and time consuming. So increased commissions for those new customers would help offset the affiliate’s initial investment.
(g) You will not offer any person or entity any consideration, reward, or incentive (including any money, rebate, discount, points, donation to charity or other organization, or other benefit) for using Special Links. For example, you cannot implement any “rewards” or loyalty program that incentivizes persons or entities to visit an Amazon Site via your Special Links.
Furthermore, no information about their packages has been mentioned on the website. There is no dedicated page which lists the products and services offered by this company. Few additional links on the site direct you to video tutorials and you are forced to watch them in order to know what this Super Affiliate Network is all about. You need to spend your valuable time in knowing whether it would be worth dealing with this company or not. You are directed to more and more videos which seems more like a strategy to engage you in their network. Whatever the company claims to offer is something that you can learn over the internet for free.     
Murphy has grown the affiliate channel to represent 11 percent of her overall revenue. She hopes that she will be able to grow that number to 20 percent. What she likes most about the affiliate channel is that it is performance based — instead of paying for ad placements and hoping that they work, she pays a 12 percent commission on actual sales generated. The program tracks sales based on a 365-day cookie, which means that affiliates earn commissions on repeat purchases that occur within one year of the initial referral.
In order to receive a payment, you must provide us with your bank information. Please provide your banking information, select a preferred currency and set a minimum payment threshold by signing in to your affiliate account. You are eligible to receive commissions through direct deposit after you have reached our program minimum payment threshold. Payment thresholds vary by country or currency and can be seen in your account settings. Affiliate payments are available 90 days after the date of sale, assuming your payment threshold has been met.

Interpersonal relationships have been crucial to the success of Murphy’s program. She frequently consults with top affiliates directly to keep communication open. She’ll also adjust her product mix and merchandising to increase conversion rates to drive mutual profitability and long-term value. CrazyForBargains takes these key steps to stay active in the affiliate community:
Im Internet-Marketing gilt die Faustregel, dass eine E-Mail-Adresse pro Monat etwa 1€ wert ist. Daraus lässt sich erkennen, wie wichtig es für jeden Online-Marketer ist, eine EIGENE Liste aufzubauen. Und wie das Experiment zeigt, kann man durchaus mit ganz geringen Investitionen Provisionen erwirtschaften UND gleichzeitig als Affiliate eine eigene Liste aufbauen – gratis.
(h) You will not store or cache Product Advertising Content consisting of an image, but you may store a link to Product Advertising Content consisting of an image for up to 24 hours. You may store other Product Advertising Content that does not consist of images for caching purposes for up to 24 hours, but if you do so you must immediately thereafter refresh and re-display the Product Advertising Content by making a call to PA API or retrieving a new Data Feed and refreshing the Product Advertising Content on your application immediately thereafter. Unless otherwise notified by us, you may store individual Amazon Standard Identification Numbers (ASINs) for an indefinite period until the termination of this License. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if your application includes a client application, the client application may not store or cache Product Advertising Content. Upon our request you will, within three business days of our request, furnish us with a copy of any client application that includes or uses Product Advertising Content for the purpose of verifying your compliance with this License.
I frequently see people join a network, see no immediate results and traction, and let the campaign fall by the wayside. Remember: No one knows your business as well as you do, so leverage your knowledge and think outside of the box for who may be a great fit as an affiliate. They don’t have to be a massive company with millions of followers on social media. They just have to have a decent following, an engaged audience, and a potential interest in or need for your product or services.

Even if you’ve already got a long list of emails for clients and prospects, you should never stop adding to it. Especially since it’s not nearly as hard as it sounds. For example, make sure your list is always growing passively with a signup feature on your website. Subscription forms should be on your home page, blog page and everywhere else you can fit it without taking away from more important content.
SAN is usually promoted as a done for you system where most of the things are automated and all you have to do is put them together and create a profitable sales funnel. And that you can, of course, develop a six-figure affiliate marketing business. I want to be clear about that. The only way to do that with SAN is if you are already earning 6 figures. It is not just the training that will cost you a small fortune. Their training will primarily teach how to generate traffic using paid methods. And that means you will have to spend more money. So, you must have an extra budget for that too.
(b) You will not sell, resell, redistribute, sublicense, or transfer any Program Content or any application that uses, incorporates, or displays any Program Content, PA API, or Data Feeds. For example, you will not use, or enable, or facilitate the use of Program Content on or within any application, platform, site, or service (including social networking sites) that requires you to sublicense or otherwise give any rights in or to any Program Content to any other person or entity, nor will you create links formatted with your Associates tag for, or display such links on, a site that is not your Site.
While there are currently tens of millions of blogs worldwide, close to 60 million powered by WordPress alone, many bloggers are not yet monetizing their sites. If you're one of these bloggers, a good place to start is with affiliate marketing: directing readers to a product or service in exchange for a commission on the sale (or other action) when it occurs.

You will register for and be assigned a unique URL associated with an Associate ID for your participation in the Local Associates Program. You will not use any alternative URL or Associate IDs in connection with the Local Associates Program or use the assigned URL or Associate ID for any other purpose. For purposes of this Local Associates Policy, your unique URL will be considered a Special Link as defined in the Associates Program Operating Agreement.
The Australian Spam Act 2003 is enforced by the Australian Communications and Media Authority, widely known as "ACMA". The act defines the term unsolicited electronic messages, states how unsubscribe functions must work for commercial messages, and gives other key information. Fines range with 3 fines of AU$110,000 being issued to Virgin Blue Airlines (2011), Tiger Airways Holdings Limited (2012) and Cellar master Wines Pty Limited (2013).[14]
Presentation is everything, or so they say. With this old adage in mind, we’ve compiled our best tips for anyone who wants to send emails that subscribers click into a handy email design guide. We cover each facet of design: content, templates, identity, color, images, layout, fonts, and calls to action. Design is as much science as it is art, and we take the guesswork out of what can seem like the most challenging part of sending good emails.
(m) You will not include on your Site, display, or otherwise use Special Links or Program Content in connection with, any spyware, malware, virus, worm, Trojan horse, or other malicious or harmful code, or any software application not expressly and knowingly authorized by users prior to being downloaded or installed on their computer or other electronic device.
The seller, whether a solo entrepreneur or large enterprise, is a vendor, merchant, product creator, or retailer with a product to market. The product can be a physical object, like household goods, or a service, like makeup tutorials. Also known as the brand, the seller does not need to be actively involved in the marketing, but they may also be the advertiser and profit from the revenue sharing associated with affiliate marketing.
The only way personal coaching can work is if the system (training course) eliminates the financial motive for the coaches. If they can’t make any more money from you after you already paid for that membership/product then and only then you can be sure that the coach is there to help you. But this is not how the personal coaching works in The Super Affiliate Network.
You will register for and be assigned a unique URL associated with an Associate ID for your participation in the Local Associates Program. You will not use any alternative URL or Associate IDs in connection with the Local Associates Program or use the assigned URL or Associate ID for any other purpose. For purposes of this Local Associates Policy, your unique URL will be considered a Special Link as defined in the Associates Program Operating Agreement.
Be prepared that the site will get unblocked not immediately, only after 3 - 5 notifications. Right after the lock, you'll get an e-mail, containing a text with general information and a link, which leads to the rules every user must abide. My advice: under each review write a disclaimer in a given language "The results from the use of this product may vary depending on the individual characteristics of the organism". Also, you ought to replace all phrases, which have specific numbers to the common phrases. For example, the phrase "After 2 weeks of using you will 100% get rid of acne" could be replaced by "Using this product, you quickly get rid of acne" or "Guaranteed results in 95% of cases" by "Wonderful results". After the first changes I thought that the conversion will fall heavily and campaign will go down, but practice has shown that conversion has not changed.

No website. SAN won’t teach you how to build a website or how to use a platform like WordPress. They don’t have their own website builder or hosting service. That is perhaps the reason their training focuses more on email marketing and not so much about attracting organic traffic. In my opinion, creating your own website is a must. Otherwise, you can’t really say that you are going to build an online business. You are just creating a sales funnel.

To begin the enrollment process, you must submit a complete and accurate Associates Program application. Your Site(s) must contain original content and be publicly available via the website address provided in the application. You must identify your Site(s) in your application. We will evaluate your application and notify you of its acceptance or rejection. Your Site will not be eligible for inclusion in the Associates Program, and you cannot include any Special Links or Product Advertising Content on it, if your Site is unsuitable. Unsuitable Sites include those that:
In my opinion, SAN is not a scam. But that is just my opinion. I am not a lawyer or a judge so i don’t feel it is really my job to state if something is legitimate or not. In order for me to call a training program a scam or fraud there must be no actual training or service offered. In this case, there is some quality training and you can learn how to effectively use a few online marketing methods like solo ads and email marketing.
The diverse array of companies involved in email marketing ensures that no one party can make changes that would have a widespread effect, and unlike Facebook or Twitter, if you invest the time and money into building and cultivating a great email list, your subscriber list will be an asset you own. Thus you’ll be able to leverage your list without the threat of someone limiting its effectiveness.
Send new subscribers a “welcome” sequence. This is the message that you send to people right after they subscribe to your email list. It could contain a link to your lead magnet for an easy download, a thank you for subscribing, or maybe a call-to-action to check out your most popular blog posts. Every email list needs a welcome series: don’t miss this chance to “woo” your new subscribers and turn them into loyal fans!
The only way personal coaching can work is if the system (training course) eliminates the financial motive for the coaches. If they can’t make any more money from you after you already paid for that membership/product then and only then you can be sure that the coach is there to help you. But this is not how the personal coaching works in The Super Affiliate Network.
You are responsible for all activities that occur under your Account Identifiers and/or Data Feed Access ID, as applicable, regardless of whether those activities are undertaken by you or any other person or entity. Therefore, you should contact us immediately if you believe that someone other than you may be using your private key or password, or if your private key or password is otherwise disclosed, lost, or stolen. You may not use any Associates tag parameter, Account Identifier, or Data Feed Access ID assigned to anyone other than you or that we did not specifically assign to you.

However, if you are selling a niche product (with a smaller market potential – for example: commemorative and collectable plates) you may need to offer a higher commission rate to entice affiliates to join the program. You’ll have fewer affiliates but they will be highly motivated. This can result in more sales for your and ultimately more revenue.
Affiliate marketing allows practically anyone with a website to sell a whole range of products and services without worrying about maintaining an inventory, shipping products to customers or dealing with customer service issues. As an affiliate marketer, you are given a unique ID number. When you place a link on your website that leads to a product on the distributor's website, that unique ID number is used to track the sale back to you. After the sale is made, you're given a commission on the sale. While the distributor will track your sales for you, as an affiliate marketer it is your responsibility to keep track of your affiliate account leads and ensure you get paid for the sales you make.
As of mid-2016 email deliverability is still an issue for legitimate marketers. According to the report, legitimate email servers averaged a delivery rate of 73% in the U.S.; six percent were filtered as spam, and 22% were missing. This lags behind other countries: Australia delivers at 90%, Canada at 89%, Britain at 88%, France at 84%, Germany at 80% and Brazil at 79%.[8]

Many networks provide metrics on the earnings of other affiliates with certain offers. The standard metric is EPC, or earnings per click. This unit is generally presented as the total earnings for every 100 clicks received. An EPC of $97 means that for every 100 clicks on an affiliate link to that merchant, affiliates are generating $97 in revenue.
Two-tier programs exist in the minority of affiliate programs; most are simply one-tier. Referral programs beyond two-tier resemble multi-level marketing (MLM) or network marketing but are different: Multi-level marketing (MLM) or network marketing associations tend to have more complex commission requirements/qualifications than standard affiliate programs.[citation needed]
