An “affiliate” is someone who is allowed to resell Monument Memberships and earn a commission for every sale. This is a unique option available only to Infinite Members, and it is open for registration at certain times of the year. It is optional.
Why does registration to the Affiliate Program open and close? There are certain times of the year when Monument focuses on building its memberships. These are “launch” times when a window of opportunity exists to make money on referrals. We close the door at these times and focus on helping registered Affiliates succeed in making their commissions.
How do I register for the Affiliate Program? Easy, scroll to the bottom of this page and press the button. If a button does not appear, it is because you are not logged in as an Infinite member.
How is the Affiliate Program used by Infinite Members? When you join the Affiliate Program you will have a special Affiliate Dashboard through Monument’s payment processor. You will have a unique Affiliate Dashboard that will provide hyperlinks, banner ads, and other resources for you to help you sell memberships. There will also be a chart of your sales and earnings.
How does the Affiliate Program work? When a competitor comes to the sales page through an affiliate’s hyperlink, a cookie is placed on their computer or device. The cookie lasts 30 days, and if the competitor buys within that 30 days, that sale is tagged with a commission. If there is ever a conflict with cookies (i.e. two or more affiliate cookies on a new customer’s computer), the latest affiliate will get the credit. So, affiliates should encourage their potential customers to sign up as soon as possible.
How do affiliates track progress? Affiliates have access to a personal dashboard. The dashboard has stats of the affiliate’s hyperlink performance and results of recent sales. Some advanced customization that allows 3rd-party trackers is allowed as well as the ability to add a personal success page for referenced members.
How will affiliates get paid? Affiliates will need to set up a PayPal account to receive automated payments. Once a new customer sale becomes non-refundable (i.e. after its 30th day), Monument automatically releases payment to the affiliate’s PayPal account. In other words, commissions will arrive on Day 31 of a new member that the affiliate referenced to Monument.
How much do affiliates end up making? Affiliates earn 20% commission for every sale, and every membership level is included in your commission. The math:
- Basic Level is $29 = Earning of $5.80 for each Basic Level sale.
- Member Level is $89 = Earning of $17.80 for each MEMBER Level sale.
- Member PLUS Level is $129 = Earning of $25.80 for each PLUS Level sale.
- Member INFINITE Level is $199 = Earning of $39.80 for each INFINITE Level sale.
How should affiliates promote memberships? Affiliates should brainstorm ways to promote memberships. Do you have friends in the speech and debate community who would appreciate membership? Are you a coach with a number of students who could use Monument downloads? You may be a tournament director or blogger who has a mailing list of potential members. Consider the communities of people you already are affiliated with. These are the people affiliates would invite to become Monument Members.
