How to Make Sure Your Affiliates are Registered to You 

How to Make Sure Your Affiliates are Registered to You 

This is quite important – and it has been put in place so that you do not lose out.

First of all, let’s go through the system. 

 You tell people about this excellent service and provide your affiliate link. 

Your prospect clicks on your link, and goes to your affiliate site. 

They register as a customer. (They have to in order to become an affiliate). 

As a result, you get £7.50 per month from that. 

(You do not get anything if your affiliates then registers customers and affiliates – just the £7.50 per month for as long as they use the service).


If you are promoting the service, that can quickly build up to a nice residual monthly income.  

I would rather have 100 people using the service and receiving £750 a month, instead of 1000 affiliates sitting round doing nothing apart from the odd sale, as happens with so many affiliate programs. You see, the work from home industry is full of  ‘moths’  flitting from one thing to the other, and barely settling on the next shiny thing before flitting off again. 

Affiliate numbers are for vanity – residual income for sanity…

So if you can trap them on the way past, you can get paid every month for years. 

There is a downside. Let me explain.

When someone sees your affiliate link, for example 

they may remove your ID number from the end, and go straight to   

(For some reason, some people believed that if they go direct to the company they will get a better deal. As a result, you will miss out).

That’s not good is it? 

We thought of that… 

All affiliate applications are checked manually. So if someone ignores being a customer, and tries to just be an affiliate, you don’t gain anything. They cannot be ‘just’ an affiliate and their application will be refused. 

If you personally introduce someone that you know, and they bypass you, admin has a way of allocating that affiliate to you so you don’t lose out. However, for people that you know, you need to supply proof that you introduced them. 

To cover all eventualities regarding people that you don’t know (i.e., from Facebook advertising)  you need to get a Bitly link. 

This is extremely important so please read carefully 

Go to Bitly and paste in your affiliate url, I.e., (x = your number) 


You will then receive a Bitly link to give out. 

Note, you can dream up your own Bity link. For example, mine is now 

When someone click on this link in your ad, they are taken to your affiliate site – in this example they would be taken to vpntv.euref=3 

Ah, you say – but they could still knock off the affiliate link at the end when they see that in the address bar! 

It doesn’t matter – they are allocated to you having clicked through to the site. 

So please – before you begin splattering advertising all over the place get yourself a Bitly link so that you don’t lose out – and please check the other blogs re advertising, using copyright images etc. 

By the way – the other good thing about a Bitly link is that you get to see how many visitors are going to your site – so you can tell whether your advertising is working or not.

Good, or what!
