Hello, my name is Beth Kroenke and I am a Web Marketing Manager at Discount School Supply. I wrote a post on Circle Time a few months back describing our affiliate program through Commission Junction and inviting readers with their own sites to join. Now we have an additional program through the Google Affiliate Network! This is just another great way for people who have a website or blog (and who would like to spread the word about our great deals at Discount School Supply AND earn money at the same time) to join our affiliate program! It’s exciting to be able to partner with people who appreciate Discount School Supply's values and who want to help spread the word about the deals we offer by carrying an ad/link to our site on their site. It’s rewarding to see so many people interested in partnering with us.
What is an affiliate program? Basically, it is a means by which a company may advertise on websites and blogs other than their own. For instance, let’s say Mr. Smith has a website. He joins our affiliate program and posts a link to DSS on his site. If a visitor to Mr. Smith’s site buys a DSS product via his posted link, Mr. Smith will receive a commission from us! Not only is this a good thing for Mr. Smith and us, but this also helps web shoppers find the products they need at the prices they want!
Anyone interested in becoming an affiliate can apply for a publisher account (a free service) through Commission Junction or the Google Affiliate Network and then apply to the Discount School Supply affiliate program . Once approved, it’s time to start adding links to your website or blog! Approved partners can sing the praises of DSS while earning money at the same time!
