Affiliates

An affiliate is someone who promotes the work of another for a commission, usually a percentage of revenue generated by the initial sale.

If you are an established or budding affiliate marketer, please contact me via the support page. Most affiliate sales are managed via Clickbank.com; if you have readers in the UK, please contact me for a favourable deal.

The commission is currently 60% of the sale after taxes and Clickbank's own cut. This is the initial launch offer, and this is the most favourable time to participate, as the percentages will be changing soon. Two tier commissions will be coming soon.

As this is a new launch, there are no data regarding sales per click or refund rates. However, the item for sale is high quality, and considerable value is added to encourage customer retention.

Connecting the sale to the promotion is handled by Clickbank.com, and additional features within this website (OakEBooks.com). Clickbank uses cookies to track sales from your promotional material back to the checkout at Clickbank when the customer finally makes a purchase. This is the standard system at Clickbank, and it works well. In addition to this, this website (OakEBooks.com) also implements Clickbank's email based attribution as a backup. This is partly because the sales funnel uses a free report as the typical first step with a new customer. Should a customer delete Clickbank's cookies, or make a purchase via a different browser to the one they used initially, Clickbank's email based attribution will still work to connect the sale to the marketer (you) so that you get your commission. Clickbank's tracking cookies and email based attribution are both valid for 60 days from the cutomer signing up to this site with your affiliate link.

Appropriate Marketing

It is ESSENTAL that you market in a way that is respectful to your recipients.

Spam email marketing is PROHIBITED:

If you are marketing to your own email list, please ensure that (a) everyone on your list opted in; and (b) the marketing is appropriate and relevant to that list.

If you are marketing to another's list, you must obtain verifiable permission from the owner of that list, and the assurance that that list conforms to the requirements above (members opted in and the content is relevant).

When marketing to any list (your own or another's), you must indicate that the link you provide is an affiliate link and that you will get a commission for any sales made via the link you provide.

The above applies equally to text based advertizing via social media.

"Negative marketing" (using clickbait that suggests something negative and untrue about the product in order to attract attention) is PROHIBITED.

Always advertize in honest and respectful ways.

If Oak EBooks Ltd. determines, at its sole discretion, that these rules have been contravened, your affiliate links will be blacklisted, meaning you will not be able to make any commission from promoting products on this site. This is essential to preserve the reputation of this site and the products hosted hereon, and to preserve the profitability of affiliate marketing for those marketers who act with integrity and professionalism.
