What is a Brand Ambassador Affiliate? (copy)

The Position

Brand Ambassadors

This position combines two different current marketing concepts into one, that of a Brand Ambassador and the other an Affiliate Marketer. The idea of a Brand Ambassador is to act as a spokesperson and represent the company’s brand in person or online. The brand ambassador presents the company, its products and services in a way that compels people to purchase.

The job of an online brand ambassador is to generate traffic to the website, page or social media profiles of the company they represent. Many marketing options are employed to drive this traffic but it is generally done online through social media channels.  They are compensated upfront in some way that generally is not in monetary value (this is not the case with a face to face brand ambassador as they are paid a percentage of the sales made). Typical modes of compensation for online brand ambassadors include free products, services and discounts in exchange for product testimonials, reviews and shoutouts. Sometimes online brand ambassadors are compensated in dollars but this generally involves a celebrity or online social media personality with millions of followers.

Affiliates

An affiliate is a person who markets and advertises products and services for various companies, in exchange for a percentage of the sales generated. An affiliate searches around for companies that have affiliate programs selling products and services that matches their current interests. The affiliate is a skilled online marketer who will employ several different marketing methods and techniques to bring about traffic and sales.

Some of the ways an affiliate will generate traffic:

  • write a weekly beauty blog
  • post affiliate link on their own website
  • create a Facebook Fan Page as an additional marketing tool
  • purchase ads to generate traffic to their own blog, website or affiliate link
  • social media marketing campaigns
  • building an email list and marketing to that list

An affiliate is always paid a commission on the sales made from the traffic they generate. The affiliate marketer will generate traffic to a product or service and most likely have never actually used the service or product. They are masters at generating traffic to an offer and that does not require firsthand experience or knowledge of the product. Instead it’s their passion for the niche (in this case our niche is the cosmetics industry) that allows them to generate traffic and sales through their affiliate links.

Brand Ambassador Affiliate

Now that you understand the difference between a Brand Ambassador and an Affiliate. Those who have worked or currently work as a Brand Ambassador, this position is going to be a bit different from what your use to. You will be paid a commission for the traffic generated not given free products for your efforts. If you are an affiliate, then your challenge will be to learn how to up your marketing game by learning how to be a Brand Ambassador. You must learn to be social as a brand ambassador and not just as an affiliate. This position is for every race, age or sex as the only difference between a 20-year-old Brand Ambassador Affiliate will be that most of her followers will be younger. A 45-year-old Brand Ambassador Affiliate will have a more mature follower and audience base but women of all ages wear makeup and need their voices heard. The age of your followers will not keep you’re from making lots of money.

Program Details

Program Details

Before we can teach you how to market and sell as a Brand Ambassador Affiliate. We need to take the time to discuss some of the company policies, marketing materials and program specifics.

Independent Contractor

You are an affiliate that acts as a spokesperson for Goddess Cosmetics. You do not work for us as an employee, instead you are an independent contractor. We will not take any taxes out of your commission payments. Making you responsible to pay your taxes when you file at the end of the year. This is your business, remember to keep receipts for supplies and services you purchase to run your business.

Compensation

You will be marketing and making sales by sending traffic through your affiliate link to our website. The general affiliate link assigned to you can be found in the affiliate back office.

You are paid 15% of the sales generated from your affiliate link traffic. Once a sale has been paid, filled and delivered, the customer becomes your customer for life. You will continue to make 15% in commissions on all additional orders they make. If they continue to order under the same customer profile generated under their email address. When a customer makes a purchase, a customer profile is automatically setup for them underneath their confirmation email address. This email address will be tied to you for future commission payouts.

We also will pay you 5% on the commissions earned by your downline affiliates.

We pay twice a month on the 15th and the 30th to your PayPal account on file. The payment made on the 15th will be for commissions earned between the 16th-30th. The payment made on the 30th will be for commissions earned between 1st-15th.

PayPal

We only pay through PayPal! It’s one of the most secure ways to make a business payment to affiliates.  This keeps us from having to store your personal banking and payment information. Instead all we need is your PayPal email address to make on time commission payments to you.

Recruiting

The company recruits passively for you by adding any new affiliates who signup underneath your general referral link. You can also proactively recruit and build your team faster. We have created a recruiting website for you to send prospects to that are interested in signing up as an affiliate. When you send marketing traffic to this website directly you will still get your affiliate credit. You must make sure to use the correct Marketing Group Materials to get referral credit (this will be explained in detail later.)

We have one recruiting tier or downline that you can make override commissions on. This means that your recruits must be direct affiliates, that either you recruited personally or came to the site under your affiliate link and decided to join.

Tracking

When someone clicks on your affiliate link it will send them directly to our website and place a cookie on them. That cookie will remain on them and be tagged to you unless they come to the site under a different affiliate link. We give credit to the last affiliate link a visitor came to the site under.

Example 1: Lisa comes to Goddess Cosmetics (the site) under your affiliate link and does not place an order today. But comes back tomorrow under your same affiliate link and orders. You would be credited for the sale

Example 2: Mary comes to the site under your affiliate link but does not purchase anything. Comes back 3 months later to the website but does not come under your link. She instead goes directly to Goddess Cosmetics, when she places her order you will get credit for the sale. Because your affiliate link was the last one she came to the site on.

Example 3: Candi comes to the site through your affiliate link and does not purchase anything. But a month later sees an advertisement on a friends Instagram page and clicks her affiliate link to our website. You would not get credit for Candi's purchase because we give credit to the last affiliate link used to come to the site.

Please make sure you understand how this policy works. Most affiliate programs follow leads for 30 days and then that’s it. Instead we are willing to give you credit for a sale even if the lead doesn’t order for 9 months. If your link was the last link they visited the site under.

Although we do not tag a lead for life to you, we do tag a customer to you for the life of the customer. Remember that a customer must continue to purchase under the same account details for you to continue to get credit for each additional purchase. They must use the same email address and customer account created when they placed the first order.

Visitor: A person that comes to the site under your affiliate link.

A Unique Visitor: A person that comes to the site for the first time under your affiliate link.

A Lead: Technically a lead is a visitor to our site under your affiliate link that has not placed an order

A Customer: Is a person who has made a purchase

The code is affiliatediscount this code is notto be shared with anyone. If it is used on an order of a person who is not anaffiliate we will not honor the order or discount. If you want to provide adiscount to a potential customer you would need to use the Coupon Code optionin your affiliate back office.

You can participate in theRewards Program as an affiliate to earn coupons that can be used to purchaseproducts.

NOTE: There is one part of the Rewards Program that you cannotparticipate in and that is the refer a friend option. As an affiliate this optionwill not work for you. The refer a friend offer sends the visitor to the websiteunder a discounted link.
