To become a successful affiliate you must engage your audience and sell them your trust in a company. Vendasta has created a partnership designed to make you an expert, so you can feel confident in your recommendation and endorsement.

Who should consider becoming a Vendasta affiliate?

A Vendasta affiliate is someone who—in exchange for commissions—shares their love for Vendasta. As an affiliate partner, you'll receive an industry-leading commission for every referral to Vendasta who signs up.

In order to be successful, affiliates should have a strong and engaged audience, along with a passion for sales and marketing. 

“Traditionally affiliate marketers are the ones pushing out content online. They have their own blogs, they already have an existing website. They may have multiple different affiliate links there as well,” says Vendasta Director of Partner Alliances Kass Naicker.

“But we’re also looking for affiliates who have an audience and just want to try something a little bit different. No matter where your audience is, whether it's on your website, blog, TED Talk,  Instagram, Tik Tok or Facebook. Affiliates are able earn commission by tapping that audience so we can bring them into the Vendasta ecosystem.”

The Vendasta Affiliate Advantage 

With a focused approach on sales-led growth the Vendasta sales division is an affiliate’s secret weapon, according to Vendasta Director of Partner Alliances Kass Naicker. 

Our affiliates can focus on what they do best, putting out the proper content and getting unique and qualified referrals to us. We take it from there and close those clients, so the affiliate can collect the commissions.

Do learn from others

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? Take note and use those lessons to inform how you might want to develop your own affiliate content.
