What is an Affiliate Program?
An affiliate program is a way to track online referral sales using an affiliate software system. When an affiliate shares their personal link and a client clicks on it, and then places an order on Banyan’s website, the affiliate receives a percentage of the sale. You don’t need to be super tech savvy, but you do need to know basic website management, know how to copy and paste to social media, or have someone who can manage these for you.
An affiliate can create links to any page on our website, including:
- Any product page
- The Banyan Botanicals homepage
- Our constitution test
- Our educational guides or blog posts
- Earn 20% commission on affiliate sales (excluding wholesale and student discount orders.)
- Special affiliate-only monthly coupon codes to help drive sales.
- Earn commissions on your online referrals for up to a full year.
- Beautiful banners provided by Banyan to add to your website.
- Tech support to help you get started.
Should I Apply?
Our affiliate program is not for everyone, nor is it a way to get rich quick. But it can be a good way to help supplement your income, especially if you are already sending people to the Banyan website. We want our affiliates to be successful in their efforts and aim to see that our affiliates make at least $100 a month. During 2015, our top affiliates earned commissions from $100–$300 per month, but many earned less than $50. We are learning that many consumers prefer to shop on Amazon because of the convenience and free shipping for prime members. We recommend that you communicate to your customers that when they use your affiliate link it supports you. The price of products are the same for affiliate customers, banyan website customers, and amazon customers (unless they get free prime shipping). Amazon is a reality that affects all businesses, including ours. Please take this into consideration when applying to be an affiliate.
Unfortunately we can’t accept every application. We deny applications only after careful evaluation, and when it is in everyone’s best interest. We appreciate you and want you to see the best results possible for your efforts.
We’ve compiled a short list of attributes successful affiliates have to help you evaluate whether this would be a good fit for your business.
