Income School’s Affiliate Program Terms
If you’re going to treat this page as something you just scroll past and don’t read, be sure to at least read the following highlights, but all of this is important and we advocate you read this entire page. This is an important legal document even though it is written as much as possible in language you can easily understand.
By participating in or using Income School LLC’s affiliate program, you agree to be bound by the following Terms and Rules. If you disagree with any part of the Terms then you may not access the Service.
- Don’t be a butthead. Seriously, just be fair and honest and we’ll get along just great.
- Don’t SPAM your affiliate link everywhere. (See rule #1)
- Do not violate Income School trademarks. Never give the impression that you represent Income School, or lie about your experience with the program. Don’t use Income School trademarks in your site title, channel, or social profile. More on this later.
- Don’t use paid advertising to promote your affiliate link. There are some exceptions to this which we’ll discuss below. (See rule #1).
- Don’t focus on only “Project 24 Reviews”. We want you to bring a NEW audience to Income School, not just swoop up commissions from the audience we did the work to introduce to the brand.
- Violate rule #1 and we’ll cancel your account and not pay commissions. We will also order a drone strike on your home and feed sugary cereals to your children.
- Don’t violate rule #1 and we can pay you oodles of money and have a great relationship. Commissions are between $50 and $100 on most products and depend on your commission level which is determined by your audience size. You can always contact us to request an increase if you have the audience and conversion rate to justify it.
Affiliate Program Purpose
The purpose for our affiliate program is to reward those who can bring new customers to Income School. We do NOT want the program to be used for merely creating Project 24 reviews.
We spend a tremendous amout of effort and cost in finding new customers through content marketing. It’s a lot of work to grow a Youtube channel that attracts new customers. So we aren’t excited about then paying a high commission to someone who then takes the customer WE found and gets their commission simply because they watched their one review before buying.
Consequently, we want affiliates to focus not on Project 24 reviews, but instead on growing their own audience who they could then refer to Income School.
Please do not make channels, sites, or other media that merely reviews Project 24 or Income School videos. This only costs us money in affiliate commissions for people WE found and warmed up to a sale.
Instead, make your channel on whatever topic you’d like, and then tell your audience how blogging has worked for you and helps to provide an income. Then refer them to Project 24 and claim your check!
Technical Information About How Purchases are Tracked
Our affiliate program gives credit to the first link that is clicked by an affiliate, not the last. Thus, if Affiliate A brings a new customer to Income School and they check out the sales page, but then that same customer reads a review by Affiliate B before buying, only Affiliate A receives the commission. Why? Because we’re focused on rewarding affiliates for introducing new customers to Income School.
Income School LLC has an account in our own affiliate program. We are essentially an affiliate for our own product. So when we find and introduce a new potential customer to our site who then visits the sales page, they may have already clicked on our affiliate link from our Youtube channel, or website. If our link is clicked first, we are the affiliate and any consequent clicks to another affiliate are not rewarded with a commission.
The reason we do this is simply because we only want this affiliate program to be used for rewarding affiliates for introducing new people to the platform. We don’t want “buzzard affiliates” who simply hang around the audience we generated, and try to spam our Youtube videos with their affiliate link in the comments, or who just create reviews of Project 24 so our audience clicks on their affiliate links before buying.
Income School’s Trademarks
Do not use the affiliate program in a way that would imply endorsement by Income School, or in a way that could imply that your site is produced by Income School LLC.
Do not use the terms “Income School” “Acabado” “Project 24” “Content Warrior” “Jim Harmer” “Ricky Kesler” or any shortened version, misspelling, or variation on those names in the URL of your site, or in the profile name of any social media channel. Income School, Acabado, Project 24, Content Warrior, Affiliate Sherpa, or any other Income School trademark or common hashtag or phrase are owned by Income School LLC. Using those names in your title implies we endorse or are the source of the content you create, and this may infringe our trademark rights.
Remember that the purpose of this program is to introduce NEW people to Income School.
We pay commissions according to the agreement with have with you as an affiliate. Commission amounts depend on your audience size and success rate. We may communicate with you via email about your commission and that will be the rate we pay until further notice.
Income School LLC may, at its sole discretion, increase or decrease your commission rate at any time and will only pay that amount for all future sale referrals.
Failure of Technology
We use well-regarded technology to track affiliate sales of our products. We want it to track sales properly because we WANT to pay affiliates for referrals of customers they introduced to the brand. This helps us to have a motivated affiliate and brings in new customers. We have no desire whatsoever to cut your commissions that you properly referred which meet the purpose of this program.
Any failure of the technical system to properly track a referral will be looked into promptly and we will use reasonable efforts to make sure you get credit for all properly referred customers. In the event that our technical system fails to recognize a click for some reason, you agree that Income School LLC is not liable for the failure of the system to show your referral as payable.
Any payments in excess of the amount owed from the affiliate program to you need to be sent back to Income School LLC and you agree to do so.
