Smart DNS Proxy Affiliate Program Word of Mounth

Promotional strategies do not always work out

Numerous services rely on various methods of marketing their products. Sophisticated methods of advertising and selling are employed worldwide to make people aware of various merchandise and services and huge, oftentimes unreasonable, amounts of money are spent on marketing campaigns. Sometimes there is a considerable imbalance between the money invested and real gains. Besides, each marketing campaign is somehow tinted with the spot of exaggeration if not deceit. However, it is a common knowledge that the best way of spreading the product among other potential clients is actually spreading the word about it.

The idea

What is simpler than just telling your best friend about the service or the product that you are satisfied with? What is more, you can also actually benefit from it. Literally. Simply put, affiliate programs are arrangements in which an online merchant or service website pays affiliate websites a commission to send them traffic. These affiliate websites post links to the merchant/service site and are paid according to a special agreement. This agreement is usually based on the number of people the affiliate sends to the merchant’s site, or the number of people they send who buy something or use their services. Basically, if a link on an affiliate site brings the merchant site traffic or money, the merchant site pays the affiliate site according to their agreement.

The beginnings

Affiliate marketing as an idea started off way ahead of internet-based sales. The concept of revenue sharing with the commission paid for referred business predates e-commerce and was introduced into the Web in 1994, four years after the origination of the World Wide Web. The idea was devised, patented and put into practice by William J. Tobin, the founder of PC Flowers & Gifts. Two years later, the associate program was launched by Amazon and this was actually the moment when, after granting a patent on several components of an affiliate program, the whole idea of this marketing model started to take off.

Use word of mouth to earn real money

The first and the most important prerogative of the Smart DNS Proxy Affiliate Program is that it is absolutely FREE to join. All you need to do is to sign up for a free account and you will receive a unique affiliate link in Your Account area. You can promote this link on your website, social media posts, emails, blog entries or anywhere else online. When someone clicks on your link and lands on Smart DNS Proxy site, their activity will be monitored by special software. You start earning money once the user creates an active account because of your link. You will have insight into the number of “your” users under the affiliate program section on your account.

Starting in a small circle

Just to dispel your potential concerns – you don’t need to be a website owner or a marketing campaign creator. Start with those who are close to you – your family or friends (or both). If you think that the SDP service is worth recommending, simply send them your affiliate referral link (via social media post or an email). When the referred client becomes a paying user, you start earning commission for every sale, also when they renew the services.

Make bigger circles

If you own a website or an online service with the website, you may not only use the referral link but also Smart DNS Proxy banners and marketing materials to promote our services with the use of your own website. Everything will be recorded in the system and can be followed and checked at any time at your affiliate panel. It doesn’t cost you anything and the larger your website’s range is, the more clients you can attract and, consequently, the larger commission you are able to earn. If you decide to invest in pay-per-click or pay-per-visit network (e.g. AdWords), you are free to use them

Corporate actions

If you have larger possibilities of using, e.g., affiliate marketing agencies, you may also create advertising campaigns for the Smart DNS Proxy services or at least incorporate our activities into your own campaigns and thus drive traffic to SDP website also through other websites. The affiliated website helps to make the sale and the mother company takes care of everything else – accepts orders for services, collects the money and provides support. The aforementioned Amazon company has now more than 500,000 affiliate websites participating in their business. And even with such wide-scale activities, your performance will be tracked and rewarded accordingly.
 

Small worries not to worry about

Lifetime plan

You may think that you will only get paid for the initial payment of your referred user and, in order to keep the money flow, you will need to recruit new people all the time. Nothing could be further from the truth. The SDP affiliate program is a lifetime plan with payment for every sale that is made with your help. You are rewarded as long as the user referred by you renews his or her account.

Time limit

Don’t worry about the time limit. The link cookie is set for 90 days. If the user signs up for a free account within 90 days after clicking the referral link and decides to take a paid option even after 90 days, you still get the commission money from that.

No spam

Please remember that certain marketing methods are just not allowed, no matter what you promote. Smart DNS Proxy does not accept spamming, Black Hat SEO techniques (like keyword stuffing, invisible or hidden text, etc.), or using materials that infringe copyrights. You also may not use your affiliate link to make your own purchases. Such activities will ban you from the system. Check out the SDP Terms of Use for details.

Rewarding your performance

Once you become affiliate, you may track down your statistics under My Account > Options > Affiliate Section. All your sales will be there and you will clearly see the money that you earn and where it comes from. The minimum payout amount is $20, however, you may get paid once your balance exceeds $50. All payments are sent from 25th to the 10th day of the month following the one you earned your commission. What it means is that if you made, say, $100 in January, your payment will be made automatically between 25 February and 10 March. All payments are made via PayPal.

It’s like a family business

Smart DNS Proxy is trying to make their services as good as possible and constantly strive to improve their performance. That is why it is so important for the SDP Team to keep in touch with the clients and listen to them. It is done via support pages, chats and social media sites. Your feedback as well as your help is invaluable and the idea is to care about those who care about SDP. Everyone is treated with mutual respect. While it is true that all smart DNS solution providers occasionally experience glitches due to a firm anti-geoblocking policy of major streaming platforms, the networkers are doing their very best around the clock to keep you satisfied and give you the best reason to recommend the Smart DNS Proxy services to new, potential users.
