We appreciate your interest in our affiliate program. We are so grateful to be able to provide bloggers, webmasters and social media admins with QUALITY LDS products to offer to their followers in exchange for commissions. We are proud to be able to help stay-at-home moms, single moms, parents trying to earn extra income to pay for missionaries, or anyone just trying to earn extra income. Because we pay ONGOING commissions, our commission rates are some of the best on the INTERNET.
Affiliate Program Details
As an affiliate you will earn a
generous 7% commission on sales generated from visitors to your website, blog, social media, or other advertising mediums. To set us apart from other affiliate programs, we will also pay 2% ongoing commissions for FUTURE purchases that your affiliate referral makes on our website if they register for an account, regardless of how they found us again. In other words, not only do you earn commissions from an initial sale, you will also earn ongoing commissions for the life of the customer. We want this program to be rewarding for you!
Affiliate Program Benefits
Top earning affiliates may be rewarded with incentives like higher initial and ongoing commissions, gift cards, affiliate dinner parties, promotion of your website or social media page, and tickets to concerts and other LDS events. We want you to feel like you are part of our company and receive top-notch service. We don't want to be just another advertising link you throw on your website.
Help Us Help You
As an affiliate, if you see we are not meeting the needs of the market, we hope you will let us know how we can improve. If your blog followers are asking where they can get baby blessing bows, and you don't think we carry bows that the market wants, please contact us and we'll do what we can to improve. We want to be sure we are in touch with what the market wants through our valued affiliates. We want to make sure that any potential customer you are sending our way can find something to purchase.
What We Provide
Once you become an approved affiliate, you will receive: a custom link with your affiliate code to send your followers to, access to banners of all sizes to embed on your website or blog, an affiliate login where you can see paid and unpaid commissions, and of course, a paycheck each month. Let's work together to provide quality LDS products to help members of the church live the gospel more fully!
