If the affiliate world was perfect IMO you could just link to websites… anywhere on there site… not have to worry about some crazy link structure or id or login and if you referred traffic that made a sale you would get credit…. I mean that would be pretty cool right? Its to bad nobody does that… and you can make great money from it… OR CAN YOU?!?
This is one of those things gems I have debated about posting about… I mean its great to share with the world how you make money and how easy it is and with the recent $10,000 contest best of the web is having I thought I would give this gem up.
Best Of The Web, the most respected web directory on the internet, has an INCREDIBLE affiliate program… and I have never heard anyone else talk about it. I have never even heard Best Of The Web people talk about it… except when I bring it up to them (in private).
I have been using this program for well over a year or so.. maybe longer.. not sure but its one of my favorites. For one thing its FOR LIFE of the user… so you refer someone you get paid every time they pay. Its really awesome and it has a pretty massive snowball effect. I am currently at just over $2,000 per month in income from there affiliate program… its not huge but what the hell… all I have done is put it in my forum signatures and linked to there site every once in a while over the last year. The best part is I dont have to ever remember some affiliate ID I just link to there website… thats it… So last week when they announced their $10,000 giveaway all I did was link to the information page.
Weds – On that day I received 18 signups.
Thursday – The next day was 14 signups
Friday – 16 signups
Saturday 11 signups
Sunday – 3 signups
Monday – 3 signups
Tuesday – 4 signups (so far)
I really started getting into it about this time last year with there contest to win a plasma HDTV. I clicked on the affiliate link in there site and signed up:
Then I added my site:
And here is there commissions table:
So as you can see you get 25% of revenue FOR THE LIFE OF THE CUSTOMER. Well I told Best Of The Web I wanted to do a post about it my good experiences with there program but I asked if there was anyway shoemoney readers could get a little extra bonus for something…
So here you go. If you use code shoemoney30 you will receive 30% commission which is 5% more then the base rate.
Also you might be wondering how I link from my forum signatures and get credit (since i use shoemoney.com domains). I just use a meta refresh from http://www.shoemoney.com/botw.html as you can see in my digitalpoint signature. Because its a meta refresh the headers load and it uses my domain for the referring url and all is well 😉
So go sign up for the Best Of The Web affiliate program here and use code shoemoney30 for a extra 5% commission.
