Become a Testiment Affiliate: Earn Generous commissions by referring others to Testiment Marketing.
Testiment Marketing is a professional marketing service specializing in diverse, customized marketing strategy development and deployment for a full range of companies wishing to expand their online reach. We are looking for motivated affiliates with a website, opt-in newsletter or ezine that is related to online promotion, marketing, business, entrepreneurship or related topics.
We reward others who help our business to grow. We pay 10% of compay profits per sale referred. Considering the quality of services offered and the professional edge of our team, 10% of any referred client will be substantial. Average commission per sale ranges from $600.00 - $1200.00 USD.
Your income opportunity is unlimited, as our services are not restricted by workload. We have contractors in place internationally - although the business is all coordinated in one location. So all referred traffic that converts into sales will be credited to your affiliate account.
For example, if Testiment makes a profit of 10,000.00 from a referred sale, you would receive 1000.00 for simply promoting our services on your website or blog. How many sales you refer is up to you, and depends largely on the quality of your site content, the relevance that it has to marketing or business, and the amount of targeted traffic you receive.
Because of the nature of our transactions, we cannot "automate" the process of deriving 10% of a dynamic marketing campaign through a database, so this is how our affiliate program structure works:
-We track each valid lead* (quote request) by crediting your account with 5.00
-If the valid lead does not decide to buy, you keep the 5.00 as a lead commission
-If the valid lead does decide to buy, you keep the initial 5.00 credit and 10% of all profits from the clients' marketing campaign, which will be approximately 600.00 - 1200.00 or quite possibly more.
-We pay commissions based on all valid leads and finalized sales every 30 business days.
-Minimum payout is 100.00. If you do not generate this amount in a given payment period, your balance will be carried over and continue to accrue into the next pay period. (You will never be penalized for "poor performance", as our program is not volume-based).
-Payment is available by Cheque, Paypal or Wire Transfer.
*valid leads are actual customers that carry out some sort of communication process, as determined by Testiment Marketing. A form submission or quote request (manual plug) does NOT constitute an approved lead commission. This is to prevent click/plug fraud, which we take seriously.
Sorry, we are no longer offering a referall arrangement.
You are responsible for claiming your own affiliate commissions in regards to income-tax filing obligations, in accordance with the governing laws of your country. We do not make any tax-deductions for you; you will receive your affiliate earnings in full.
Testiment Marketing is a reputable, professional company, and WILL NOT tolerate any affiliate marketing via unsolicited mail (SPAM). This includes email signatures and auto-responders. We will also NOT tolerate any "plugging" of any form of refferal link on link-dumps, forums, newsgroups, message boards, guestbooks, pop-up/under/in campaigns, third-party advertising campaigns, or any other method that is not in absolute compliance with our affiliate program promotion requirements. Any affiliate caught "spamming" or "plugging" will be immediately removed from our program, and all commissions will be forfeited. We may also report the affiliate to the appropriate authorities in order to help decrease illegal spamming practices.
Affiliates of Testiment Marketing are in no way employees, contractors or any other sort of related business colleague. Affiliates are to be considered "mini-marketers" of their own company or practice, which receive a referral reward for all clients that purchase services or products from Testiment Marketing.
Testiment Marketing pays its affiliates within 30 business days of finalizing a marketing agreement with a referred client. Commissions are based on company profits (margins will remain undisclosed), and will be paid at a rate of 10% of any and all such transactions. We also credit every valid lead at a rate of $5.00 USD. Payment methods include: Cheque or PayPal
Testiment ONLY accepts the following forms of online promotion: Credible, business-related website or blog that is your property, Opt-In Newsletters (ALL subscribers MUST have opted to receive your newsletter individually and willfully), and in some cases, targeted, contextual text advertising such as Google Adwords or Overture. Text-Ad content copy and each targeted keyword must be approved with written consent by Testiment Marketing prior to broadcast.
You are encouraged to use any of the banners and text links provided within the Testiment affiliate program. However, you may not modify our graphical or textual advertisements in any way and publish them on your online medium without prior approval, in the form of written consent issued by Testiment Marketing.
All websites, blogs, newsletters/ezines and text-ad campaigns will be reviewed by our staff prior to approval for our affiliate program. We do not allow sites, blogs or ezines/newsletters that contain any adult, illegal, hateful, objectional or questionable content to publish our affiliate links. Furthermore, the main theme of your content must be business-related (as determined by Testiment's reviewers), and the majority of your viewer demographic must be businesspeople, entrepreneurs, executives and others potentially interested in utilizing online marketing to establish, grow or change their business or related ventures.
Unlike other affiliate programs, the Testiment affiliate program takes fraud and unethical methods of referring "sales" very seriously, and audits all accounts frequently. If you plan on abusing our system for your own financial benefit, please refrain from signing up as an affiliate. We reserve the right to refuse payment to any affiliate if we suspect any illegal or unethical methods of generating sales. We will immediately notify the applicable authorities regarding any and all illegal or questionable actions that an offending affiliate performs.
