Referral Programs vs Affiliate Programs
Let’s discuss the differences between referral programs and affiliate programs. Learn how to use these programs to get free stuff like free mobile service. Resources Mint Mobile Key Points Use referral programs to get free stuff.Click To Tweet Learn how to get free mobile phone service.Click To Tweet Transcription provided as is by Otter Hey, this is Arthur from ArthurCundy.com. Welcome. Today we’re going to talk about referral programs and affiliate programs. Are they the same? Are they different? Let’s get into it. Alright, so referral programs versus affiliate programs. Now, here’s how I look at it, based on what I’ve seen out in the marketplace today. This is how they’re similar and this is how they’re different. So from what I can tell referral programs are for the average consumer. The average customer, the regular person who maybe doesn’t have a following, is not good at marketing and doesn’t have any experience or anything like that. A lot of times companies will have both, they’ll have the referral program separate from the affiliate program. So what is the referral program? This is how sometimes it’ll work. The referral program usually they’ll give you a little bit of money. They’ll say hey, refer a customer who will give you $20, or $15 or they’ll give you a discount on your product or service or will give you more of the service. So for example, like Dropbox, when, when they were first getting started, they had this referral program where if you refer a friend, you got extra space in your account. And you know, you refer five friends you get, you know, that amount of space five times, right. So they grew very quickly because everyone wanted more space in their service. So if you have a great service and a great product, you know, you could have a referral program where you give, give, give someone you know, a little bit of extra or a little discount On their product or service for referring other people and bringing more people in. So, and in the affiliate program is usually more robust, you’ll get more money, you’ll get more discounts and incentives, more benefits, more training, more support. And it’s usually just a, you know, a more enhanced version of the referral program. And usually, they’ll have two separate pages on the website where they fully explain what you get for each for each scenario, and so you can read through it I recommend to read through, you know, all the information. Sometimes it’s on the same page, but just read through everything and to fully understand what they’re offering and which one is the best for you. So if you’re just starting out and you just want to get your feet wet, you just want to dabble in referring customers here and there. You can take part in the referral program, just to see how it is see what you’re you know, if you have a little audience or a little following, you can see, okay, you know is, is my audience receptive to this type of product or service, you can, you know, refer a few people see how it goes. And then you can move on to the affiliate program where, you know, they may have more stricter guidelines. And so usually on the website, you’ll see referral program or they’ll have refer a friend or tell a friend or something like that. And the affiliate program we will usually say affiliate program or affiliates, or it’ll say partner program or something along those lines. So in usually it’s on the website, and it’s on the footer. So for an example, let’s take a look at Mint Mobile. All right, here we are on Mint Mobile’s website. So you can see here 15 bucks a month. It’s a great phone service that I have. And they have both a referral program and an affiliate program. So if you scroll down here on the website, all the way at the bottom, you’ll see they have two links here, refer a friend and become a partner. So if you click on refer a friend here, you’ll see get a free year of service when you refer five friends. So you just refer five people and you get a free year of service. Simply share your unique referral code, and when you get 5 people to join Mint, you, my friend, will have earned $240 of renewal credit to put toward your next plan renewal. That’s enough to get an entire year of our 8GB/mo plan for free. Oh, and don’t forget, each friend that signs up also gets a $15 renewal credit. And it gives a little breakdown of okay you refer one you get $25, for two you get $30 for that person, you refer three, you get $35. So they have this each person you refer, you make a little bit more money, nd you get a free year. So it kind of explains how it works, you know, to refer away so this is a great way if you have mobile service with Mint, which I do, and you refer others, you can get a free year of service and this is based on the 8GB plan. But if you choose a plan that is cheaper than that, then it could be even more than a free year of phone service. This is how they have their refer a friend or referral program. Then there’s FAQs that you can go through and learn more about and then if you click become a partner, you’ll see how different this is. This is Mint Mobile’s affiliate program. So you can see here that $20 commission on all orders. And if you go down, it fully explains how that all works. Here are the qualification. So you’ll notice in the refer a friend program, the referral program, there wasn’t any qualifications in order for you to participate. I think the only qualification is that you need to be a customer so that you can get your phone service for free, obviously, right. So that’s the only qualification if you’re going to use a service Anyway, you might as well tell a few friends and get a free and get free service here with the affiliate program or the partner program as they describe it. You should have a blog or website with 3,000 monthly visitors you need or have a YouTube or social channel with 5,000 followers. And you love telling people have clever stuff, right? And they have a link here that Oh, if you don’t have these qualifications Here’s a referral program that takes you back to the refer a friend page. And just kind of show you the highlights, you get $20 Commission on all orders, a 45 day cookie window. So if you don’t know what a cookie is, is basically a little piece of code that is put on someone’s browser. And so if someone clicks on your link, you have 45 days to get paid. They’ll give you a unique coupon code where you know, instead of having the link, or you can have it in addition to the link, you’ll have a specific coupon where people put in the coupon code. And then that coupon is tagged to your account. So to make sure that you get that commission, and you’ll see here access our library of banners and text ads. So if you want to do marketing, if you want to do you know social media advertising and things like that, they have images and text ads for you to use. You have exclusive newsletters with special promotions. So if you have an email lists you can, you know, send out emails to your to your audience. But you also, I believe this is just you receiving emails newsletters from Mint Mobile, about special promotions that they have and news on the company. And then you know, reliable tracking and payouts and impact is an affiliate network that they’ve been a part of so and they kind of tell you how it works, you know, fill out the form, see if you’re a fit. tell everyone about men and get commission for every sale that you draw. So the way that they’ve set it up is they have a tell a friend program, or referral program where it’s very simple to join, you just, you know, become a customer and they’ll give you a link right away and you can start sharing that with with your network. And if someone signs up, then you get free credit towards free service with the affiliate program with a partner program. They want these are for people who can drive a lot of sales really, really cool. Quickly, and so they provide more support more support. They’ll give you you know, $20 on on all new Commission’s people that you refer. And so there’s no limit to how many people you can refer. There’s only this 45 day window cookie, where someone clicks your link, and they buy within, you know, 45 days from now, you’ll still get that credit. And so, so it’s a bit different. And what a lot of people do is they start off with the referral program. And once they get their feet wet, and they kind of learn the ropes and kind of knows who, who the best customers are to refer to Mint Mobile. Then they switch over to the affiliate program. And as long as they meet all these qualifications, they’ll be accepted and start earning $20 for each person that you refer. So a lot of companies split it up this way, and it’s good to know the differences between a referral program an affiliate program. So there you have it. Those are the differences between a referral program and an affiliate program. If you’re just getting started, it might make sense to do the referral program, first, try out the service, the product, see if you like it, see if your audience responds to it. And then once you’ve set up a following, or feel confident that you can make, you know, more income using the affiliate program, then you switch over and go ahead and promote it that way. Comment below, tell me which affiliate programs you like which referral programs that you’ve seen, that are pretty cool that you know, maybe you got something for free out of it? And let me know. All right. Talk to you soon. Hey, before you go, if you’re looking for a way to earn additional income for your household, I’ve got something special for you.

What Is Affiliate Marketing?
One of the ways that I’ve been using to earn additional income over the years is affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketing is referring or recommending a product or service to people. If those people make a purchase, you get paid a commission. Key Points Earn income by referring or recommending products or services.Click To Tweet Use affiliate programs that pay you consistently, not just one time. Click To Tweet Transcription provided by Otter Hi, this is Arthur Cundy from ArthurCundy.com. And in this episode, we’re going to talk about what affiliate marketing is, how does it work, and how you can use it to earn additional income in your household. Okay, so before I get started, let me tell you a story. So back when I got my start in entrepreneurship, back in 2000, I started with building websites. So I was a web designer, and I created websites for small businesses and large companies and you know, everything in between. And so over the course of building websites, one of the natural things is, you know, after I build a website, you need to get it online, right and so that means I need to get the client set up with a web hosting company. For those of you that don’t know, web hosting companies, you know, they have a whole bunch of servers, and they charge, you know, anywhere from $5 a month to $19 / $20 a month, depending on what you need. And they have a whole bunch of web servers, and they put your website files on the webserver. And that’s how you get your website, live on the internet for anyone to find it. And so I wasn’t a web host company. And so what I did was I would look for a web hosting company that I can refer to my clients, based on the type of website that they had, whether it’s ecommerce or maybe a regular basic, you know, brochure website with only a few webpages. And I would refer that client to that web host. I was doing research and I found a web hosting company that I can refer my clients to. I was like, “Oh, this looks cool.” And when I was looking at their website, I realized that when I refer someone to that company, they would pay me, a one time fee of $60. So I refer someone over there, you know, one of my clients over there, and the web hosting company would pay me $60 for referring them a customer. And I thought, Oh, you know, this is cool, you know, I could get paid for doing something that I was already going to do anyway. And so that kind of piqued my interest. And I got more curious, so I started doing more research. And I found that a lot of the web hosting companies that were out there, they had some sort of referral program where I could refer someone to them and you know, I’m making a little bit of money. And I thought, Oh, this, this must be a thing. And, you know, I got more and more interested in it. And then I found one particular one that would not only pay me One time, but they would pay me ongoing for as long as that client remains a customer of that web hosting company. And I thought, wow, I could get paid months and years into the future for just referring a client one time. And so I got really excited. It became so simple to me because I would build a website and refer a customer there. And we just it was just a natural transition, I would say, Okay, great. Your website is done; here’s a great web hosting company that you can get your web hosting account set up with. And they would just go ahead and set up their account and I would get paid ongoing, and I’ve made thousands of dollars this way using just this one technique. That’s essentially what affiliate marketing is. It’s referring or recommending a product or service to a customer. And when they sign up, you get paid. Some programs, you get paid one time for just doing that one transaction. And a lot of other ones, you get paid ongoing consistently. So you do the work once, setting up an account for someone, and you get paid month after month, year after year ongoing as long as that person remains a customer. And so that’s essentially what affiliate marketing is. It’s referring customers, referring people to products and services that they’re already looking for. And when they sign up, you get paid. So how does this work? Affiliate marketing has been around since the early 1980s. And many big companies, you know, Amazon, Target, Best Buy…. any company that you’re using, chances are they have an affiliate marketing program attached to it. Companies love this because it’s performance-based marketing, so they only have to pay you if they get a customer so that they’re not spending a whole bunch of money on advertising. They just set up the program, and they only have to pay you when you produce a sale. And it’s great for you because there are no upfront costs to get started, you can join any affiliate program out there. Some programs have a little bit stricter guidelines. But for the most part, you can go to a website, scroll down to the bottom, usually there’s a link that says affiliate program or referral program. Click on that link and sign up and you’ll get approved in like a day or so. What’s great is that they’ll give you a ton of tools to help you promote their product or service. They’ll give you sometimes a lot of training. There’ll be a private Facebook group, sometimes they’ll have like weekly or monthly webinars that you can join, where they’ll teach you and coach you on the best ways to promote their product or service. They’ll give you web banners or advertisements, articles that you can put on your website or your blog, so there are tons of resources that they’ll give you to help you promote their service. So for example, the web hosting firm that I was partnered with, they provide web banners for me to use. They even gave me website themes that I could use and create my own web hosting website. So it can look like I’m my own web hosting company, which is pretty cool. They had a forum, articles, a private blog that I can go to and read articles on how to promote their service. It became which do I focus most of my time on. So when I was creating websites, there’s a ton of time and effort that’s involved with creating websites. I need to speak to the client, hash out details, create a proposal, in some cases, write out a whole bunch of specifications and requirements for that website. I’ve got to design the website, go back and forth on revisions. Get a programmer involved if there’s custom things that they need to build out the website. And, you know, this can take anywhere from a couple of months to like a year, year and a half, to build out a website. So I can do that, or I could just refer a customer to a web host company, and get paid consistently over and over and over again. So there’s pros and cons with different ways of earning income. And over the years, I’ve leaned more along the ways of affiliate marketing because there’s no upfront cost, I don’t have to pay anything to get started. They provide a lot of support with helping me promote whatever you know the product or service is and if it’s a good product or service, then it’s easy to recommend it to people that and I get paid and it’s consistent, and it’s over and over again. So that’s essentially what affiliate marketing is. And I highly recommend that if you’re looking for a way to earn additional income, or increase your income, or if you have another business, you can plug affiliate marketing into that to increase revenue, as well. So yeah, affiliate marketing is the way to go. Especially if you don’t have a lot of time, you don’t have a lot of money looking to get started in earning some additional income. Hey, before you go, if you’re looking for a way to earn additional income for your household, I’ve got something special for you. So I’ve created this free web class, where I’m going to show you how to earn consistent monthly income without creating a product or service or spending a ton of time away from your family.

TET000: What is The Entrepreneur Track?
Hey this is Arthur Cundy and welcome to Episode 0 of The Entrepreneur Track. To start let me give you a little background… My entrepreneurial journey began In 1998, shortly after starting college at 16 at Hofstra University, I became extremely fascinated with web design. I began teaching myself HTML and Adobe Photoshop. In November 2000, I launched a web design agency. Four years later, I launched a web hosting business. Over the years, I’ve worked with Madison Square Garden, WebMD, CBS College Sports, Teach For America as well as a bunch of small businesses to help them achieve their goals. Things were going pretty good. However, in life unexpected things can happen. In 2008, my wife of 3 years passed away due to complications from Sickle Cell Anemia. And, our son was just 2 years old. So the question is, how was I supposed to raise this boy on my own? I realized if I was going to be a single parent I needed to get really smart about the way I spend my time and how I earn income. Spending more time with my son became infinitely more important to me. Just so you know, I’m now remarried, my son is 11 and have a brand new 3-month-old daughter. But this experience was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to go through. And it led me down a path of looking for more efficient and reliable ways of making money that didn’t involve a lot of time commitment. Here’s what I believe: Things can change for you in an instant. You can lose a job, have a huge financial need, need to relocate. You just never know what can happen in the future, and that’s why… Everyone needs a way to earn additional income. And not just one 2,3,4.. A business, a side hustle whatever you want to call it. I’m no expert, but I’ve learned a lot. My mission is to help as many entrepreneurs as I can to create a business that supports your family and allows you to live the life you want. That’s why I created this podcast. The Entrepreneur Track is where ambitious entrepreneurs learn the tips, tools, and tactics to stay focused and grow a business that not only achieves your goals but provides for your family as well. I’m going to be doing interviews, reviewing business and marketing tools that will help you grow your business and giving you my thoughts on current business events. So look out for the next episode…. And thanks for coming on this journey with me.The post TET000: What is The Entrepreneur Track? first appeared on Affiliate Marketing & Business Automation w/ Arthur Cundy.
