Running a blog is hard work. Don’t get me wrong. I love sharing all I know with my readers, but it isn’t always sunshine and roses. I can use all the help I can get. I’ve spent hours and hours producing quality content for my readers and now you can partner up with me and benefit from my efforts too.

Step 1: Sign Up

E-junkie is who I use to run my affiliate program through. If you are already familiar with the E-junkie system, you can join my programdownload banners and view payout dates.

If you do not already have an E-Junkie Affiliate Account:

1. Create a PayPal account at paypal.com (if you don’t already have one)
2. Create an E-junkie account at e-junkie.com
3. Click here to Join My Affiliate Program

Step 2: Download Banners

Now that you’ve joined the Growing Up Herbal E-junkie affiliate program and linked your account to mine, you’ll want to create Image and Text links so you receive credit for others’ purchases. Below you’ll find the link to the Growing Up Herbal Flickr account. Here you’ll find web optimized images that you can use to create image links to Growing Up Herbal products on your website, social media page, email promotions, etc.

Downloading Flickr Images

To download images from Flickr to use on your web page, social media, or email promotions, see the following steps.

  1. Click the image you wish to save to your computer. You will see it pulled up into a lightbox by itself.
  2. Right click the image and select “original” from the links available. You will then see the original image on the screen along with several different size options you can choose to download in. If you’d like the image in a different size than what’s available, move on to #3 to download the image, and then resize it in a photo editing software like picmonkey.com.
  3. Once you’ve selected your size, right click the image and select “save image as” to download to your computer.
Step 3: Create Links

Once you’ve uploaded any banner images you’d like to use to your website, you’re now ready to create your affiliate links to receive credit for other people’s purchases.

You have several options for creating your affiliate links below depending upon what you’re looking for.

Link To A Product Page

This link will take your readers directly to the product sales page of the product you are promoting. My product sales pages will help readers learn the specifics of my products and will allow them to make the purchase. This is the most effective type of link for promoting specific Growing Up Herbal products.

Link To The Shop Page “My Books”

The Shop page will direct you to my books. This is the page you want to link to… the “My Books” page. The “My Books” page displays a list of all the Growing Up Herbal products I’m currently selling. If you want to link to all of my products at once, without specifying which one the user should be interested in, this option is available to you. If you want to promote one specific product, go back up to the “Link To A Product Page” section.

The Most Important Part Of The Link

The most important part of your affiliate link, the part that redirects users to where you want them to go and gives you credit for what they purchase, is what is in between the quotes of href=”_” element where the underscore is located in purple. You can use this link in your webpage, email promotions, social network posts, etc.

For example:

<img src=”http://yoursite.com/ads/image.png”/>

Can be used as:

The ###### areas are where the product numbers and your affiliate ID numbers will be located. Everything in between the quotation marks (” “) needs to be copied and pasted exactly as it’s written in e-junkie.

Add An Image

Images help drive traffic to Growing Up Herbal products. In order to add an image to your affiliate link simply replace the inner text of the link to point to your image’s URL.

For example:

Becomes:

<img src=”http://yoursite.com/ads/image.png”/>

Adding in the <img src=””/> section is what will add in your image.

URL Shortening

You may shorten your affiliate links, the part inside the href=”_” element, through services like bitly.com in order to reduce the size of the link when posting to sites such as twitter.com.

Step 4: Promote

Now that you have your personalized links it’s time to get your ads online. But where do you put them? How do you get people to see them and click on them? Here are some suggestions to help get you started.

Blog Posts

Write a blog post review of your favorite Growing Up Herbal product. Honest, well-written reviews with affiliate links embedded in post text and images will help your readers to understand why they might find the products helpful for them as well.

Comments

Posting affiliate links on other peoples’ blogs is typically bad taste and not recommended. However, when your readers leave a comment on your blog you can often find a valid reason to add your affiliate links as part of your reply to their comments.

Emails

You can put affiliate links in the text and image links of your email messages. You can casually mention (and insert your affiliate link) into the body of an email to friends and family. Or, formally send out an entire post complete with images and text ads telling your customers, blog subscriber, etc. why you love a particular Growing Up Herbal product.

Note: For mass mailings, you must have the permission of your contacts to send them bulk mailings in order to send them Growing Up Herbal promotional materials and affiliate links.

Another great way to include affiliate links in your emails is to include and image with your affiliate link in the signature section of your email.

If you don’t want your full affiliate link to show up in your email, you can always shorten your links using bitly.com.

Groups & Forums

Do you participate regularly in groups or forums? If your forum allows it (be sure to check the forum’s rules and regulations), post links to Growing Up Herbal products that address the needs of your forum members, or include it in your forum post signature.

Social Media Sites

Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest and other social media sites are great for sharing about the things that interest or have helped you. Post your affiliate links and a brief testimonial about what you like about the products when you post your affiliate links and images. Be sure to be friendly, conversational, and not pushy. Above all, always be helpful!

Website Banners & Sidebars

Putting and leaving banner ads at the top and sides of your website are easy ways for people to see (and find your link for) Growing Up Herbal products. Readers often follow interesting links coming from the people they trust and can lead to sales that happen at any time of day – even while you’re sleeping!

YouTube Videos

Do you have a video channel on YouTube, Vimeo or other social video account? Post your affiliate links in your video descriptions and as overlays on the video itself to drive traffic for your favorite Growing Up Herbal products. This is especially helpful if your video is a review about a Growing Up Herbal product.

What To Write About

When you post image ads as a banner or sidebar on your website, you typically don’t need any text with those image. However, including text links in blog posts, emails, and social media posts often require you to say something about the product. Below are some suggestions on what to write about to get your reader’s interested enough to click your affiliate link within your text.

  • Share something personal
  • Share a brief, small portion of text from the product along with your thoughts
  • Give your testimonial on how the product helped you
  • Write a review about the product
  • Share something funny
  • Share something shocking
  • Quote a statistic
  • Quote a celebrity

Think like you would if you were your reader. What were your first thoughts as you read a Growing Up Herbal e-book? How did that information help you? How does this product address a need that your reader may have? How can this product improve a person’s life? Get creative. The possibilities are endless. (Just don’t make claims that can’t be backed up by research or my products!)

You’ll do great! Most importantly, put your reader first, be honest, be direct and be excited!

Final Thoughts

Don’t be afraid to use your links repeatedly in your text. The majority of sales happen after a person has been exposed to a product several times. Maybe try sharing about what has interested you in an ebook one subject at a time. For example, you could talk about what the chapter on understanding degrees of fevers in Treating Fevers Naturally has meant to you one day, and then post a testimonial about how you dealt with your child’s last fever using this book the next. This is especially important on Facebook as only about 10 percent of your followers will see any given message that you post.

Step 5: Getting Paid

Now that you have your personalized links it’s time to get your ads online. But where do you put them? How do you get people to see them and click on them? Here are some suggestions to help get you started.

Affilate FAQs

Can I change the size of your ads to fit on my website?

Yes. As long as you don’t change the intention and purpose of the ad, go for it! Please refer to the page on how to download banners for more information on sizing adjustments.

Can I create my own ads to promote your products?

Many affiliates are incredible promoters, and I welcome their expertise in this area. If there’s an unmet need of your readers that’s addressed by my products but not by my ads, feel free to go ahead and make an ad and affiliate link for it.

If you do create your own ads, please do not:

  • make claims beyond what my products can offer
  • include any image that you do not have the intellectual property rights to use
  • misrepresent your relationship with Growing Up Herbal or use the Growing Up Herbal logo

Before you create your own ads for my products, consider this. I provide several different ads for each of my products on the download banners page to increase brand recognition across all our affiliates’ websites. Readers who see an ad multiple times are more likely to click on it. This means your chances of someone clicking on one of your ads (and your getting credit for the sale) is increased when you and other affiliates use the banners I’ve provided.

Can I put “Buy Now” or “Add To Cart” buttons on my website?

No. In order to receive a commission payout, you must direct visitors to GrowingUpHerbal.com for purchases. Putting “Buy Now” and “Add to Cart” buttons on your website for my products is not allowed. This avoids buyer confusion and will save you headache should your readers start to email you asking questions. It’s simpler and easier on us all if everything is directed towards GrowingUpHerbal.com.

Do I have to tell people I’m an affiliate?

Yes. This is just good, honest practice for affiliates no matter who’s items you’re promoting. This does not mean you need to go on at length under every link you post about how you’re an affiliate and may make money if they click your link. There are two easy ways to do it:

1. Post a link such as this at the end of your blog post, email, webpage, etc.:

“Disclaimer: http://cmp.ly/5

2. Create a disclaimer page on your website (that you create a link to on your messages) with text similar to:

“I am an affiliate of many different authors, bloggers, and businesses and may receive a commission from digital products sold which are linked to in my website and messages. All opinions expressed regarding these products are solely my own.”

Do you monitor your affiliate program for abuse?

Absolutely. I monitor my affiliate program for inappropriate and fraudulent behavior. If necessary, I will suspend or revoke affiliate privileges if I feel I must.
