To lock in a referral to your affiliate account and to qualify for earning commissions on your referral's purchases, your referral must:
It's really simple, however, this is not the "lazy man's affiliate program." Sure, you could just send folks to our website and tell them to sign up for a free account. But, guess what? Your conversion rates are going to suck.
To be a successful affiliate, you must do what successful affiliates do, namely you must pre-sell your referral. Without doing that, your results will not be as good as they could be.
You earn a commission of 40% of purchases made and fees paid by your referral for the first 12 months of the referral's account on SocialOomph.com (see Discount Coupons below for exceptions). For user accounts older than 12 months, you can still earn commission if the users enter your affiliate discount coupon code when making a purchase. In that case you will earn the discounted commission amount of that sale transaction only. If the sale transaction is a subscription purchase with recurring payments, you will receive the discounted commission amount for the first 12 months of the life of the subscription.
There's no limit to the number of people you can refer.
You get discount coupons that are unique to your affiliate account. Using a coupon is optional. You can simply refer people to our service via your affiliate link. Or, you can give them the discount coupon code, which they can use when making a purchase on our service. Naturally, you can do both as well.
When someone uses your coupon code with a purchase, you earn the standard commission amount of that purchase minus the discount amount, which we call the "discounted commission amount". A coupon applies only to the transaction where it's code was specifically entered by the user. In other words, the discount does not automatically apply to all transactions in the user account. For subscriptions with recurring payments, the user will pay the reduced amount on all recurring payments until the subscription terminates.
If the user account is less than 12 months old and not connected to another affiliate, the account will be connected to your affiliate account, and you will start earning normal commissions on that referral as outlined above. You will receive the discounted commission amount for the transaction that is connected to the discount coupon.
If a user is already connected to another affiliate and she uses your discount coupon code on a specific purchase, you will receive the discounted commission amount of that purchase. In this case the original affiliate will not earn commission on that particular sale. In other words, coupons always take preference in determining which affiliate gets the commission.
For subscriptions with recurring payments, the discounted commission amount is paid for the first 12 months of the life of the subscription, regardless of the age of the user account. For single-payment sales attached to a discount coupon, the discounted commission amount is paid regardless of the age of the user account.
You need at least 30 active referrals and one commission payout for discount coupons to be enabled on your affiliate account.
We provide you with completely free email alerts when you earn commissions, and your affiliate dashboard shows you all the details of your affiliate account.
A referral is locked in to your affiliate account as soon as the person signs up for a free account. We use first-party cookie tracking to determine which affiliate referred the person when they sign up. The last affiliate to refer someone to the site before they register their free account gets credit for the referral.
If you refer someone to our site, and they sign up right away, they are immediately connected with you as your referral.
We also place a 30-day cookie on their machine. If they don't sign up right away and return at any time during the next 30 days and sign up for the free account, they're connected with you as your referral (provided that they don't come to the site via another affiliate's link in that 30 day period, and that they have not deleted their browser cookies in the mean time).
Once a person is connected with your affiliate account, we don't need or use sessions or cookies because the affiliate-referral relationship is permanently recorded in our system.
All payments are made via PayPal. Unfortunately you cannot be an affiliate if you don't have a PayPal account.
A commission becomes payable 35 days after the date of the sale transaction. This delay period is to allow for refunds and reversals. Commissions are paid out to you when the total commission amount payable is equal to or greater than $100.00.
Once you've registered you will see your affiliate dashboard, including your affiliate link and other marketing collateral that we provide to you.
