With Getsitecontrol, you can not only create beautiful widgets for your website, but also make them work for you. All you need to do is join our affiliate program, recommend our widgets to your audience — and thus create yourself a steady stream of passive income.
How to join the program
If you want to join, first of all you need to create your affiliate account. Here’s how you can do it:
1. Sign in to Getsitecontrol
Sign in to your Getsitecontrol account. If you don’t have an account yet, create one.
2. Open the Affiliate section
Once you’ve signed up, find the Account link in the top bar.
Click it and choose Affiliate from the drop-down list.
You’ll be taken to the Affiliate section of your account.
3. Add your PayPal address
In that section, you’ll be able to add your PayPal address you want to receive your commissions to. Add the address in the corresponding field.
Check the checkbox to indicate that you agree to the Terms & Conditions of the program. Then click the Join now button to create your affiliate account.
That’s it! Now you can start sharing your referral links and coupons.
How to get referral links
Once you join the program, you’ll get a unique link that you can share with your audience in any convenient way. Here’s what it looks like in your affiliate account:
This link will take anyone who clicks it to the homepage of our site. If they sign up using this link, their account will be associated with your affiliate account. This means that you will receive 30% of any payment they make within one year after signing up.
If you take a closer look at the link, you’ll see that it includes a specific combination of numbers and letters.
Here erdvo0 is a unique referral ID, and ref just indicates that the referral part of the link starts here.
Using this combination you can turn any link to our site into your affiliate link! Just add ref=xxxxxxxx, where xxxxxxxx is your ID, to the URL that you’d like to use separating it from the rest of the link with a question mark.
Let’s have a look at some examples to make this more clear.
Get a link to any page of our site
You can add your referral ID to the URL of any page on our site. For example, this comes in handy if you want to quickly share a handy use case with your potential referrers.
Here’s what the referral link will look like in this case: https://getsitecontrol.com/usecase/usecase-name?ref=хххххххх
Get a link to any widget template
Keeping in mind that your referral ID can be added to any URL, you can use a method that will both demonstrate the full potential of our widgets and help you collect more commissions.
Here it is: add your referral ID to any of our widget templates that you can find in the Templates gallery. Your referrals will be able to easily add that template to their site — and you’ll get a reward once they create an account and upgrade it.
Here’s an example of such a referral link: https://getsitecontrol.com/p/d6x9gl36?ref=хххххххх
How to get coupons
Referral links are not the only tool you can use to earn the commissions. There are also individual discount coupons that you can offer to your audience.
Here’s how they work: you share a coupon on any platform of your choosing. When someone signs up to Getsitecontrol and buys a plan using that coupon, you get a 30% commission. Moreover, you’ll be getting commissions of every payment they will make within one year — just as if they signed up via your referral link.
Coupons are fully customizable, so you can use your own words for them and make them as personal as you want to.
Where to share referral links and coupons
Now that you know how to get links and coupons, let’s find out where you can share them to attract more referrals.
Share links and coupons on your website or blog
This is a classic way to use referral links and coupons. You can write a post or a review about Getsitecontrol, share it with your audience and add your referral link to it. Everyone who gets interested in our tool will be able to quickly sign up via your link, and you’ll start receiving commissions once they make a payment. Your post can include referral links to our home page, pricing page, or individual widgets — it only depends on your choice and fantasy.
The same goes for coupons: you can include them right in your posts or share with the blog subscribers. If someone uses your coupon when signing up for a subscription plan, you’ll receive a commission.
Share links on your social media and in messengers
If you don’t have a site or prefer using other channels like messengers or social media, you still can share referral links and coupons in them. This method works like the previous one: you choose a link to a page or a widget that you’d like to share with the audience, add your referral ID to it, and you’re good to go! If you prefer using coupons, you’re also free to share them via these channels.
Share links in the widgets on your site
If you have some Getsitecontrol widgets on your site, you can turn them into your affiliate strategy tool as well. All you need is to include a referral link and an invitation to try Getsitecontrol out into the widget itself.
One of the best practices is to add this info into the Note section. You can find it on the Content tab when editing or creating your widget.
Here you can add your convincing copy and the referral link. The latter can be added as is — or hidden in the text. To do this, highlight the text that should include your link and click the Add link button.
You’ll see a modal window. Paste your referral link in it.
Click OK. Then save the changes you’ve made using the Save & close button.
That’s it! Now anyone who clicks a link in the widget note will be taken to our site. And if they sign up, their account will be associated with your affiliate account.
