Our much expected affiliate program for PressPad News for WordPress is now available for the public.
This quick guide explains why our affiliate program might be a missing puzzle in your website monetization strategy.
The story behind PressPad News affiliate program
PressPad is quite well known in a magazine publishing industry. We work with magazine publishers since 2011. To this day we have helped almost a thousand publishers go mobile. Our digital publishing platform is not only an easy and painless way to get a magazine into App Store but it’s also a set of marketing tools for traditional magazine publishers, and other PDF-world fellows.
I’m talking about Push Notifications enabled Magazine apps, Facebook Newsstand apps, sales widgets, ASO service, landing page generator and even an app marketing lessons. Quite an ecosystem that makes a magazine publisher life easier. That’s especially true for smaller publishers without a big label standing behind them.
As a SaaS business one of our growth strategy implemented from the very beginning was a business partnership program. It opened, and it still does, a possibility for the third party publishing service integrators and content agencies to extend their offer with the digital publishing mobile apps.
When we entered a new media publishers area with the PressPad News, a mobile marketing and content curation tool for WordPress publishers, we have started receiving many questions about the availability of some kind of a referral program. It was at the end of 2016 and to our surprise, these queries have been sent usually by webmasters or WordPress theme designers.
Such an affiliate program would help many of the WordPress assets creators (including theme designers and WordPress developers) increase their revenue by connecting us with content publishers interested in our tool. What a win=win opportunity!
The hypothesis was tempting.
We couldn’t wait to test it.
Here we go!
Rolling out an affiliate program with a fair share philosophy
The Fair Share is the philosophy that stays on the top of this referral program and it means that our affiliates receive a recurring revenue from every new business initiated through them. We say “thank you” to our affiliates each month for as long as customers that came through their referral links will use our service.
How PressPad News affiliate program works
Our affiliate program let you grow with us. We will pay you with real money for every new business we’ll get through your referrals.
The deal is simple. You share information about us with your network using the dedicated referral link. Whether it’s an ad on your website, social share or anything else, every people getting through your referral link receive a 15% discount from us and you get 15% from every new deal we get.
Hint: For example $39/month plan costs only $33.15/month for people who have come through the referral link and the affiliate gets $4.97/month.
What’s more I’m talking about recurring money.
So as long as this new customer stays with us you get paid a deduction from their monthly bill (according to PressPad News pricing). Now multiply this by the factor of 10, 100 or 10000. Think of the volume effect you can create through your website and your social networks.
