Your past and current learners/students are talking about you online.


Give them a reason to keep talking!


Acquiring affiliates to sell your courses or membership site on your behalf is a low-maintenance sales tactic.

If your students/learners are getting great results and having transformations in their life or business because of your course(s) - which is always the goal - then an affiliate program gives them another reason to tell others about you and your courses.

Tapping into influencers in your niche, and having them generate leads and sales FOR YOU, means less time and money marketing your own courses!

Your affiliates receive unique referral links which they can use to promote your courses. When one of their audience, or someone in their network, clicks on that link and purchases your course, they receive a commission from you and you acquire a new student/learner.

The new students/learners that they are basically being hand-delivering to you are those which you do not need to find yourself, and unlikely that you WOULD find them yourself.

One of the reasons that this strategy works so well is because we tend to trust people that others know, like and trust, so by your affiliates introducing you and your courses to their audience they are putting their stamp of approval (their "trust" stamp) on your digital products making their audience more likely to convert to buyers.

You're probably wondering...

  • Where can I find affiliates to market my courses?

  • What do I need to give them so that they can promote my courses?

  • How much do I have to pay them?

  • How can I easily manage my affiliate program?

  • How would I onboard new affiliates?
