It's easy and simple to request your affiliate account (we review all requests before approval). If we approve your request you will be up and running in no time!
Our program is only available to current Colony members.
Spread the world to family, friends and fellow beekeepers (for new beekeepers or current beekeepers, Colony has benefits for everyone).
Go tell 'em with the custom referral link we'll provide to you! You can do so by sending your link through eMail, adding to web sites or many other ways.
When someone clicks on your referral link and signs up for Colony membership, you earn a 25% referral fee (or more - see below)...and we'll start tracking your earnings!
It's not just at signup you earn. Every time a referred member renews their membership (monthly or annual), we'll pay you a referral fee!
Our tiered referral rates reward you more as you increase your referrals.
1 - 5 active referrals : 25%
6 - 14 active referrals : 30%
15+ active referrals : 40%
As an affiliate, you have access to a detailed dashboard showing your referrals and the money you earn.
It's simple, easy and transparent.
Once approved, we assign you a unique affiliate link. Just place that link on your website, in eMails you send and more. When you refer someone to us and they sign up for a Colony membership, you earn a commission. And then you will earn more every time they renew their membership.
This is not one of those scammy affiliate programs! We care that Colony membership are truly interested and active in their beekeeping hobby.
So, we're restricting affiliates to those who clearly have an interest too, namely existing Colony members.
We send affiliate earnings once a month and when earnings have reached at least $25.
Yes. We currently require Colony membership for approval of individuals into our affiliate program.
NOTE: In the future we may elect to companies and websites that we feel directly align with our beekeeping advocacy mission.
Occasionally, your referral may take a couple of days to subscribe after clicking your link. Don't worry - we will make sure you have that customer locked-in for 30 days.
No. Our affiliate program is focused entirely on spreading the word about Colony membership.
Of course! For example, if you refer a new annual subscriber that's $25 (or more - see our tiered rewards above).
And if you refer a monthly subscriber we pay you every month you both remain members!
Do that a few times and it soon adds up.
There is no catch - we're just grateful when you help us spread the word about the benefits of Colony membership and this how we say thanks!
