We get a lot of inquiries about how we can help people earn money from our platform and we have thus introduced an Affiliate Program. This requires no capital, just willingness to be creative.
WHAT IS AFFILIATE MARKETING?
Affiliate marketing is an online sales tactic that lets a product owner increase sales by allowing others to earn a commission by recommending the product to others. At the same time, it makes it possible for affiliates to earn money on product sales without creating products of their own.
HOW WILL I MAKE MONEY?
Once you register an account and your account is activated within 24 hours, on your affiliate area there is a unique referral link. You will share this link to online social platforms to generate traffic that can lead to sales. Example of places you can share the link includes:
1. WhatsApp business groups,
2. Telegram business groups,
3. Facebook business groups,
4. Friends and followers on social media.
5. Your website or blogging page as a content monetization strategy.
6. You can also share the referral link to your friends via text message.
An example of a referral link is attached below
The referral links direct people to the website. If a person clicks on your link and buys any product, you earn a commission from the sale. Our commission is up to 20% of sale price. The more you share, the more you increase your chances of making more money.
HOW CAN I CHECK MY EARNINGS?
You can check your earnings by logging into your affiliate area. There you can check statistics on how people are responding to your referral link. You can view paid and unpaid earnings on the statistics tab in your affiliate area.
IF I BUY FOR MYSELF OR MY FRIENDS USING MY REFERRAL LINK, WILL I EARN?
No. You won’t earn. Affiliate marketing rewards affiliates when traffic from their referral links lead to purchases from other people besides themselves. If you buy for yourself and your friends using your link, it is assumed it is you who is making the purchase so you won’t earn. The best thing to do if your friends are interested, give them your referral link so they buy for themselves.
HOW CAN I WITHDRAW MY EARNINGS AND WHERE DO I WITHDRAW?
Before making a withdraw request, make sure earnings reflect in your affiliate area. If earnings do not reflect but statistics indicate people have been clicking your link, it means the clicks did not result to any purchase or orders made by those who clicked were not paid for meaning purchase was not confirmed.
If earnings reflect, you can use the “WITHDRAW” button in your affiliate area. You will be asked to provide your username and number you want money sent to for confirmation purposes.
Also note that earnings get refreshed every 24 hours. If a friend or family tells you he/she has bought data using your referral link, the earning will not reflect immediately. You will check after 24 hours.
Payments to affiliates are made through Mpesa or PayPal.
