Guide to Becoming an Affiliate

Step 1: Go over the Affiliate Programs Terms & Policies.

If you don’t understand any of the terms in the Agreement and would like clarification, please feel free to contact us at graydon@graydonskincare.com.

 

Step 2: Once you've read the Affiliate Programs Terms & Policies, you can sign up to the affiliate program here 

 

Step 3: Make sure your PayPal info is up to date and reflects the email you entered when signing up. In order to update your Paypal email, please login to your affiliate account. Click on the 'Settings' tab in the navigation bar and then click on 'Payment Settings' on the left hand side of the page.

 

Step 4: Locate your unique Affiliate link! To find it make sure you're logged into your account. Once logged in click on your 'Dashboard' located in the navigation bar. Once there we recommend shortening your link using Bitly. Underneath the link bar click on a link that says: "Shorten Link (Bitly)". Once your shortened link has been generated click on 'Copy' and start pasting it when sharing images of Graydon's line. Always test your link before using it!

 

Step 5: Choose the photo you like best that fits your brand and will most effectively get your message across. Whether you want to upload a banner on your site or share an image over one of your social media networks, we've got you covered. With several creative shots of the line along with a few of Graydon, you'll be sure to find something that's right for you. Sharing an image along with your link will drastically increase the chances of you obtaining a conversion. Find all our photos to choose from in the 'Creatives' tab in the navigation bar of Refersion. 

 

Step 6: Once you've selected your image make sure you've chosen the right size. For example, if you're looking to add a banner sized image to your personal website and have chosen a 600 x 315 image, which is suitable for Facebook and Twitter, your banner will appear distorted on your website. Follow the dimension guideline below to make sure you've chosen the right size image:

300x250 Medium Rectangle 

160x600 Wide Skyscraper

728x90 Leaderboard

600 x 315 Facebook

 

Step 7: Create your own banner! Your audience knows and trusts you. They may respond better to your face than Graydon's. If you have a product that we sell, and that you love, take a picture of yourself using it and make that image a link. Or maybe you are super crafty with your design skills. If that’s the case, design a banner that looks awesome on your website and just use your affiliate link to connect whatever you design to graydonskincare.com

 

Step 8: Map out your promo. Pull out your calendar and make a plan for how and when you’re going to promote each product. Decide when you’d like to send out a blog post, email your list, post graphics to Facebook, share product-themed tweets, etc. The most successful affiliates use a combination of all these things, scheduled over an extended period of time.
