How to send your affiliates their links

In this article, you will learn how to send affiliate links to your affiliates so they can promote your products.
You will need:
  • A systeme.io account 
  • At least one sales funnel created with systeme.io

In systeme.io, affiliate links have the following structure: https://yourpagelink/?sa=AFFILIATEID.

To learn how to set up your affiliate program with systeme.io, please read this article.

Each contact will need to share a particular link to your page so that they can promote your product and earn commissions on each sale. 
There are two ways to share your affiliate links:
1. Publishing your offer on the marketplace
2. Sending the affiliate links to your affiliates

1. How to share your affiliate links by publishing your offer on the marketplace

The purpose of the marketplace is to connect sellers and affiliates so that sellers can make more sales and affiliates can earn more affiliate commissions.

To learn more about how to publish your offer on the marketplace, please read this article.

The offers you share on the marketplace will appear on the affiliate dashboard of each subscriber to your email list:

Note that the links on the affiliate dashboard are not affiliate links, the affiliate links are found on the marketplace itself. If your affiliates are logged into their systeme.io account, the links to promote your offer on the marketplace will be their affiliate links:

2. How to share your affiliate links by sending them to your affiliates:

To share your affiliate link automatically, use the {affiliate_id} variable in your email. This will generate the affiliate ID of each contact.
Example: Aurelien wants to send an affiliate link to each of his affiliates, so they can promote systeme.io.
The offer link:  https://systeme.io/

What to put in the email:  https://systeme.io/?sa={affiliate_id}

This way, each affiliate will automatically receive their very own affiliate link to promote systeme.io.
IMPORTANT: In order for your affiliates to keep track of the number of contacts and sales they have made, they need to have access to their affiliate dashboards.

2.1 How to send the affiliate ID and affiliate dashboard link to your affiliates: 

Step 1: Create a special squeeze page for your affiliate program, where you will set up a field for the email address. 

How to create a squeeze page or a pop-up

Important: In systeme.io, an affiliate ID is generated automatically for every contact on your email list so they'll be able to promote your affiliate program.

However, we recommend that you create a specific squeeze page so that your affiliates can subscribe to your affiliate program and get a special tag. That way, you'll be able to recognize them and communicate with them.

Step 2: Create an automation rule that allows you to send an email to each subscriber, and click on the pencil icon in order to modify that email. 

Step 3: You can include the following in your email:

  • The {affiliate_id} variable to send each subscriber their affiliate ID
  • The {affiliate_dashboard} variable to give them access to their affiliate dashboard. 

    You can also include an affiliate link in your email to one or several of your offers following this structure: 
  • https://YourPageLink?sa={affiliate_id}
