One of the really cool aspects of the new Poplar Creek Farms website is that it is enabled for affiliate sales. So what does that mean to you? It means that if you have any desire to introduce other people to our CBD products, you can earn a percentage of the sale when that person buys from our site because of your influence. It is a win-win situation because we get new customers, and you get to start a virtual CBD business without having to actually invest in a company.
In this blog post, we will try to answer some of your questions, and to offer some advice on how to promote your new business.
How much can I earn?
Let’s get down to brass tacks. You earn 20% of every sale ordered with your unique affiliate code, and there is no maximum to your potential earnings. The more you sell, the more you earn. $1,000 a week in sales would be $200 a week in earnings, paid on a monthly basis.
How does it work?
When you sign up as an affiliate, you get a link that contains your affiliate code. When you give that link to someone, anything they purchase is saved under your name. We run a monthly report, and pay you 20% of the sales.
How do I get paid?
You can choose to be paid via a check, or through an electronic service like Venmo.
Do I have to have things shipped to my house, and do I have to buy it first?
Absolutely not. The beauty of an affiliate program is that there are no up-front costs to you. No buy-in cost, and you don’t have to buy any products. All you have to do is get people to buy using your code.
What about a website or physical store, do I have to have one of those?
Nope! You can provide links to our website to promote the product, just be sure that the link is your unique link so you get credit for any sales.
How do I market the site?
You can share posts on Facebook, Instagram, Tik Tok, blogs, or even do your own email marketing campaigns, etc. It really is your choice. There are a few restrictions on advertising, however. You cannot make health or wellness claims like “CBD cures cancer.” And you cannot pay for advertisements on Facebook, Google, or other sites because they have policies against CBD paid advertising. If in doubt, send an email to [email protected] and we will give you some guidance.
All of this sounds great. How do I sign up?
Just go to www.poplarcreekfarms.com/affiliate-program and click the “Sign Up Now” button. You’ll be on your way to starting your CBD side-hustle!
Are there any rules or restrictions?
There are a couple of things to consider:
- Your commissions have to add up to $100 to get a payout. This is to prevent people from using their affiliate code to simply get a 20% discount on CBD products for their own personal use. Once you have accrued a $100 balance, you will get that payment.
- You have to agree to not advertise in violation of Federal, State, or local laws, or in violation of the terms of service of places like Facebook or Google. This protects Poplar Creek Farms from being shut down for violating the law, so we take it kind of seriously.
