Affiliates

Be a Freelance Writers Den affiliate seller!

It’s easy to earn money referring your writer friends.

What is the Freelance Writers Den Affiliate program?

The Freelance Writers Den Affiliate program is a way that you can earn commission for referring writers to the Den for membership or other purchases.

You will receive a unique affiliate code to use in content such as website ads, blog posts and emails. In fact we provide graphics, copy and code that you can use to make it as easy as possible! You can use your earnings to pay for your own Den membership or simply as an extra income stream.

What are the benefits?

Earn some sweet cash or make your membership pay for itself, just by introducing other writers to the benefits of Freelance Writers Den.

Commissions

You receive 50% of your referral’s first-month membership fee, and 25% per month after that. You get paid every month your affiliate referrals stay in the Freelance Writers Den. The length of an average Den membership is about six months.

Stay in the Den Free

If you’re a Den member and refer two friends in a month, your membership that month is covered. If you have just four friends who’ve signed up and are ongoing Den members, that will also cover your membership fee.

4 Subsequent months: 25% 100%

 
Refer more friends, and you’ll have extra cash coming in as well.

Other benefits

There are other sales opportunities too, such as chances to sell the Den’s bootcamps. Non-members pay up to $297 for those, and your commission is 50%.

Program fee You get:
$197 $98.50
$297 $148.50

How do I get paid?

We pay affiliates via PayPal around the 1st of each month, and there’s no minimum to hit. If you earn $1, I send it. There is a 14-day holdback to allow time for any refunds.

Are there any restrictions?

There’s one simple rule: You cannot discount the price of any of my e-books, bootcamps, or Den membership. But you can feel free to offer an incentive, such as a free report, to writers who sign up through your link.
