How To Setup a WebHostingBuzz US Affiliate Account
Posted on 13 Nov 2014 by Adam
Note: This guide is for affiliates who wish to refer clients to our US service offering. If you’d like the UK version, please click here.
If you feel you could potentially send clients our way, and would like to earn yourself a commission in the process, signing up to our UK affiliate program is a great way of doing this.
Here’s a simple step-by-step guide to show you how to sign up for our affiliate program in the US.
1. Navigate to the Affiliates area of WebHostingBuzz.com
The first step is to head over to either http://www.webhostingbuzz.com/affiliates.php.
Once you’re there, take a quick read of the commission structure to make yourself aware of what you can earn for the different services.
Simplified, we offer a 50% commission on shared and reseller hosting, with a larger 100% commission for VPS/Dedicated Server referrals. Bonuses are also available for affiliates who refer more than a certain number of sales to us per month.
2. Hit the ‘Join Us’ button, and fill out your details
Now you’ll be presented with a signup page where you will be asked to fill out a number of important details. We’re only able to process monthly affiliate payments via PayPal, so you’ll need to enter the email address linked to your PayPal account. If you don’t already have a PayPal account, you’ll need to sign up for one here.
It shouldn’t take too long to complete – maybe 5-10 minutes at most.
3. Hit ‘Create My Account’, and you’re all setup!
Now that you’ve got an account setup, simply login with the details you provided during the signup process, and look for your referral URL (as highlighted in the below screenshot).
Anyone who accesses our website via your unique referral link will be tracked, and if they go on to make a sale through our website, you’ll be offered 50% or 100% commission from the initial sale. It’s really that simple!
4. Add text links and banners to your website
If you have a popular website or blog, and would like to drive more traffic to us (via your affiliate link), we have prepared an extensive selection of text links, HTML Ads and Banners that you can add to the sidebar of your website for example. When a user clicks the banner, they’ll be tracked, and if they go on to make a sale you’ll be rewarded.
With 100% commission available on VPS and dedicated server ranges, you could easily make $100+ from a single referral. Affiliate earnings payments are processed once a month for the previous month.
If you plan on referring a large number of clients over to us, we’ll be more than happy to arrange a custom coupon code or landing page, rather than having to share a URL. Simply get in touch, and we’ll do our best to help!
If you need a hand or have any questions, feel free to send an email over to firstname.lastname@example.org, and I’ll do my best to help.
