Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is an affiliate program?
A: An affiliate program is a marketing program that allows a person (an affiliate) to receive a commission for generating sales for a company.
Q: How does your affiliate program work?
A: As an affiliate, you place specially generated links in your blog posts, social media posts, emails, etc. These links drive traffic to our website. When a reader clicks your link and makes a purchase on our site, we pay you a commission for that sale. We provide you with banners, text links, and other marketing materials that you can use to promote our products on your site.
Q: How do you track the sales that come from my site?
A: When you sign up, you’ll be given a unique affiliate code. All graphic and text links provided to you will link to your affiliate account. Your affiliate links allow our affiliate software to track all the traffic coming from your site.
We maintain a 180-day “cookie.” That means that if you were the first person to refer a customer to the All About Learning Press website, you will be the referring affiliate for the next 180 days. Any purchase your visitor makes on our website during that 180-day window will result in a commission for you! Even if your visitor has clicked other affiliate links!
Q: What is the commission rate and how will I be paid?
A: All About Learning Press offers a 15% commission on all purchases made through your unique affiliate link. Affiliates are paid monthly via Paypal when the commission balance reaches a threshold of $25. If an affiliate decides to leave the AALP affiliate program and has less than $25 in outstanding approved commissions, the commissions will be forfeited. Upon request, the outstanding commission amount will be applied as AALP store credit.
Q: How do I track my affiliate activity?
A: Our affiliate software makes it easy for you to check your sales, commissions, and payments twenty-four hours a day.
Q: Who can become an All About Learning Press affiliate?
A: As a company, we don’t just sell products; our goal is to help parents. For this reason, first and foremost, we are looking for affiliates who are also All About Reading and/or All About Spelling users. We are looking for affiliates who know and love our products and are passionate about sharing their experience with AAR and AAS with other parents.
We are also looking for affiliates whose web presence demonstrates significant reach in one or more of the following niche markets: reading, spelling, special needs, preschool, and/or homeschooling. The affiliate's reach within these markets may come from a blog or website, YouTube channel, active social media platform, and/or subscriber list.
We are not looking for affiliates whose blogs/websites contain a large number of "random" ads and affiliate links without context.
All applications will be reviewed with these key factors in mind. Also keep in mind that All About Learning Press reserves the right to terminate inactive affiliate accounts at any time without notice. We regularly remove inactive accounts that meet two or more of the following criteria:
· The account dashboard has not been accessed in over a year.
· The account has registered very low traffic.
· A formerly active account has not registered recent traffic (all tracking links have expired).
· The account does not have any pending (awaiting approval) or current (awaiting payment) commissions.
