What is Affiliate Marketing?
Affiliate marketing is a way of earning commissions from sales on this website. Simply by sending people to Oldtownprints.com via a link your website, you get a commission when they buy something.
How does it work?
First you set up and account - it's easy, it just takes a few minutes.
You will then be given a special text link or a small banner advertisement that you place on your website. Each time someone on your website clicks this banner or text link, they are taken to Oldtownprints.com. When they purchase something, you will get a 10% commission.
How do you know if the customer came from my website?
In the text link or banner advertisement that you place on your website, there is a unique code that identifies your website as where the customer came from. When they buy something, you are automatically logged as the person receiving the commission. As long as they come to Oldtownprints by clicking on the text link or banner, you will get the commission.
Do I get a commission every time the customer buys or is it just a one time thing?
Every person that comes to Oldtownprints via your website is identified as your customer - PERMENANTLY. So EVERY time they place an order, you are guaranteed the commission, indefinitely.
Once they have made that first order, they don't even have to go through your website anymore, they can come here directly place an order and you always get the commission.
How much can I expect to earn?
That depends on how many customers you send here and how much they spend. If they buy $20 worth of photos, you will earn $2. It might not sound like much, but each and every time customers buy something, you get the commission - it quickly adds up.
How do I know when people have bought something?
You will receive an automated email whenever one of your customer's places an order. You will be able to track all orders and commissions in your affiliate account 24hrs a day.
How do I get paid?
You will get paid at the end of each month via Paypal transfer or check if you prefer. The only condition is I will only payout when you have earned $10 or more in commissions.
It sounds too good to be true?
Yes it does, but it is not always so easy. It will depend on how well you promote Oldtownprints.com on your website, how many people see and click on the advertising banner or text link, and ultimately how many actually make a purchase.
The key factor will be how related your website is to Oldtownprints and whether old photos of English towns are are something visitors to your website are interested in. Obviously if your website is completely unrelated to Oldtownprints, like cooking recipes for instance, then it might be difficult raising interest and making sales interest. But on the other hand, if your website, like many of the affiliates already signed up, is related to Genealogy, Family Trees, or English history, then you could make a lot in commissions.
How do I get started?
All you have to do is set up an account with your information and contact details (click the blue link below). Once approved, you will receive an email with some html code that you can paste onto a page on your website. Many website owners prefer to have a small banner advertisement as people will see it more easily and be more likely to click it. I will be able to send you some different banner designs and if you want some special text in it, I can do that also. The sooner you get the banner on your site the sooner people will start visiting Oldtownprints.
