MSGTAG Affiliate Programme FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is a MSGTAG Partner/Affiliate?

As a MSGTAG partner you'll be referring potential customers to the MSGTAG website. When those visitors buy one of our products we'll attribute the sale to you and pay you a referral fee. You can refer site visitors from your site via a link in a product review or they might come from a link in an email you send out to your existing opt-in recipients. You could also run banner ads, although we find that text links tend to work better.

You can promote our product via search engines, postings in internet forums, or in blog posts.

2. How do I know I will be paid for my referral?

The program is powered by Post Affiliate Pro, the leading affiliate tracking software. Post Affiliate Pro uses combination of cookies and IP address to track referrals for best possible reliability. When the visitor follows your affiliate link to our site, our affiliate system registers this referral and places a cookie on his or her computer. When the visitor pays for the product, the affiliate system checks for the cookie (if it's not found, the system checks for the IP address of referral) and credits your account 37% of the purchase value.

This process is absolutely automatic. Your referrals will be reliably tracked.

3. How is the payment handled?

Each month we calculate your total sales, subtract any refunds and transfer the balance to your PayPal account if it is more than the minimum threshold of US$40.

All payments are made in US dollars.

4. How do I set up an account?

Setting up an account is very easy and you don't have to pay to become an affiliate.

All you need to sign up go to the Signup Form and fill it out. After a review from our affiliate manager, you will receive an email with your password and other information.

As our affiliate, you will have your own control panel where you can see detailed statistics of traffic and sales you referred, news and training materials, and special links for use in opt-in emails.

Then you only need to place a link on your web site or place ads in pay-per-click search engines, and you can start sending customers to our web site and being credited with sales.

5. Do I need to use a special kind of affiliate link?

Traditional affiliate links have a special unique code in them that allow the affiliate management system to track where a click came from. While we continue to use that system for email links, for web-based links we have switched to the superior Direct Linking technology.

Direct Links don't include any special tracking codes. They are just completely normal links from your site to ours. There is no way for anyone to see that it is an affiliate link.

An advantage of Direct Linking is that your link is very unlikely to be accidentally damaged and as a result your sales will be tracked more reliably. It also makes it impossible for your visitors and competitors to see that it is an affiliate link.

To make Direct Linking work for you it is important that you list all of the sites where you will be promoting MSGTAG within the affiliate management application and on the sign-up form. If you have more websites than you can fit in the form, please email the list to us so we can add it for you.
