The Plumtree Marketing Academy provides marketing training for business owners and other professionals who don’t happen to be marketing experts—i.e. your clients, peers, followers and associates.
Our free affiliate (i.e. referral) program offers a great way for you to provide a value-add to your clients and others. Simply introduce them to courses that can help accelerate their business’ success and then get a $25 commission when a purchase is made using your affiliate link. It’s a win/win for you and your referrals!
There’s no cost to participate and no minimum sales level.
Make $25 per sale, with unlimited earnings potential.
Get everything you need to spread the word.
Automated Tracking System
Sales are tied to your unique affiliate link and tracked in your Affiliate Dashboard.
You choose whether to offer your referrals a $25 discount coupon.
The Plumtree Marketing Academy’s affiliate program is an especially good fit for those whose own efforts to help their clients would be more successful if their clients regularly produced fresh content for their blogs and/or newsletters.
The affiliate program is also excellent for:
Creators of synergistic online courses
Active participants in online business forums and groups
Business networking group leaders and participants
That said, you do not have to fall into one of these categories to join!
Q: How do I join the Plumtree Marketing Academy Affiliate Program?
A: All you have to do is complete the application.
Q: Does it cost anything to become an affiliate?
A: No! It is free to join and there is no minimum sales level. This is a program that pays people to refer customers to the Plumtree Marketing Academy.
Q: What is the commission level?
A: You will receive a $25 commission for each Plumtree Marketing Academy course purchased using your affiliate link.
Please note: Commissions do not apply to courses listed as “additional recommended courses,” which are presented and sold by other companies and experts. These courses are not sold directly by the Plumtree Marketing Academy and are therefore not part of our affiliate program.
Q: Is there a limit on how much I can earn?
A: No! The more sales you refer to us, the more money you’ll make.
Q: What type of promotional tools are available?
A: You’ll have access to a content library with product images, social media posts, blogs, emails, scripts and more. You will also receive emails that provide course marketing tips and ideas.
Q: Can I promote these courses with pay-per-click advertisements?
A: Yes, you are welcome to place advertisements encouraging people to use your affiliate link.
Q: How do you know that I referred the customer to the Plumtree Marketing Academy?
A:Our site is hosted on the Kartra platform, which includes affiliate program management. You will be given a unique link to use when sending people to our site. If your referral makes an immediate purchase during that visit, the use of that unique link will cause Kartra to associate the customer with your affiliate account. Otherwise, Kartra will create a “tracking cookie” that will last for 30 days. If your referral returns to our site within those 30 days, Kartra will recognize that the person is associated with your affiliate account; if a purchase is made during that time, you will get credit for it.
Please note: If your referral has disabled cookies in their browser’s settings and/or if they cleared their cookie history in their browser before a purchase is made, we cannot guarantee that the system will credit your affiliate account with the sale.
Q: Will I still get a commission if the person asks for and receives a refund?
A:Unfortunately, no. To eliminate the risk of purchase—and therefore to increase sales—the Plumtree Marketing Academy offers a 30-day money-back guarantee. There are no commissions on sales that are refunded, cancelled for any reason and/or determined to be fraudulent.
Q: How soon after a sale is made will I get paid?
A: Because the Plumtree Marketing Academy offers a 30-day money-back guarantee, and commissions are not paid for purchases that are ultimately refunded, affiliate payments are not made immediately. Instead, there is a 30 day “pending” period before the commission is confirmed.
Once a commission is confirmed you will be paid in the first five days of the month that follows. For example, if your referral makes a purchase in January, then that sale will be confirmed in February, and you will be paid between March 1 and March 5.
Q: How will I receive payment?
A: Payments are made through PayPal, to the PayPal address linked to your affiliate account. All payments are made in U.S. dollars.
Q: Is there a special discount coupon that I can share with my referrals?
A:Yes. You will be able to access your discount coupon code when you log in to your affiliate account.
Q: Are my earnings taxable?
A: Yes (at least in the U.S.). Plumtree Marketing Academy will issue an IRS form 1099 for your earnings.
Q: Can anyone become an affiliate?
A: There are no special requirements for becoming an affiliate. You do not have to have a company website, social media following, etc.
However, the Plumtree Marketing Academy reserves the right to deny any application from any applicant that we deem inappropriate, including those associated with websites or other online pages that feature sexually explicit material or that promote violence and/or illegal activities. The Plumtree Marketing Academy also reserves the right to cancel an affiliate account at any time, for any reason (including actual or suspected fraudulent activities), in our sole discretion. In this case, commissions for confirmed sales made prior to the account cancellation will still be paid as per our normal payment schedule.
