You've been accepted as a Vendasta Affiliate Partner! Congratulations!
You're probably asking yourself "How the heck do I get started?"
Don't worry, you're not alone! That's exactly why we've created this step-by-step guide designed to help you succeed. Let's get started.
Don't Fake it 'Til You Make It
Have you ever noticed how it's extraordinarily easy to rave about your favorite products, and rant about rage-inducing experiences? This is because your neurotransmitters (chemical messengers) have become "excited"—whether that be positively or negatively. (If you're a chemist and caught that pun, good work!) 😎 With that being said, simply state what you believe! You've likely joined Vendasta as an Affiliate Partner because you already trust us. (Otherwise, why the heck would you bother promoting us?) Your audience will be able to quickly decipher genuine excitement vs. dull, flat content.Think about it.You've scrolled across social media and seen posts where it's obvious it's a paid promotion. They lack excitement, ingenuity, and passion.But...You've also scrolled across social media to find genuine, unpaid promotions where they simply want to share their experience.The difference?
Be human! To be successful as an Affiliate, you must genuinely have a connection to what you're promoting. When your audience can feel your excitement, your commissions will consequently grow. Oh, the cycle of life! (Ahem, I mean affiliate marketing).
Do Learn From Others
Let me ask you a question. Would you rather make mistakes, or learn from others'? Sure, there are ups and downs to both. However, utilizing your research abilities can instantly be of benefit.Think about the time you were scrolling across your social feed and were drawn to a certain post. What captured your attention? How was the tone of voice written? What audience were they targeting? Did the post have significant engagement?Now, I'm not asking you to submit a thesis on affiliate marketing, nor am I suggesting you spend countless hours perusing the Internet. What I am suggesting, however, is to keep your eyes open. If you find a post excitement-inducing or cringe-worthy, take note.
The easiest way to talk about something you love is to understand it! We've created a handful of marketing materials to equip you with high-level talking points and general information. For even more detail, do as much—or as little—reading as you want on our mothership.

Why are you seeing the posts the appear? Don't worry, this isn't a trick question. Every single post you see has one thing in common: it was posted!Content is key.
