Since I’m probably flying somewhere over Georgia or who knows where right now, I though I’d share this info with you. Feel free to skip if you so chose, of course. 😉
And now onto the exciting info I learned about from NoMeatAthlete:
There’s a cool new affiliate program floating around the blog world, and I think it’s pretty neat.
Here’s the dealio, as he states it:
“iHerb.com is an online health food and supplement store, and the concept behind their rewards program it is exciting.
Here’s how it works: When you join, you get a personal coupon code that you can post on your blog and that your readers can use to get $5 off their first purchase. You earn commissions on sales that use your code, but the best part is this: your readers get their own coupon codes when they purchase, and you earn commissions on THEIR sales as well (and their readers’ sales, and their readers’ readers’ sales!)…
The catch: you have to actually buy something at iHerb to get your coupon code. But if you pick something cheap (they have lots of food, tea, and toiletries besides just vitamins) and use my code GIR461 on your purchase to get $5 off, it won’t cost you anything besides the shipping. (And obviously, I’ll get credit for referring you.) Then you can start sharing your code on your blog, Facebook, Twitter, and wherever else to start making money.
So, it seems like a cool program to me. Since you’re giving something of value to your readers when you post your code (as opposed to just posting an ad or link), I think this could spread quickly in the health blogosphere. So it might be good to be one of the first in, so you’ll earn commissions on everyone’s sales! You can see lots more details about the program on their rewards program page.”
I don’t usually like supplements and crazy stuff, but I checked out the store and there’s some pretty good stuff in there, like green tea, chia seeds, coconut oil, vitamin D, etc. I got me some chia seeds and coconut oil to try out, plus lots of free samples 🙂
