1. What is an affiliate program and how that works?
DiasporaEngager is committed to be a development-based platform that goes beyond just friendship and networking. We are an advanced environment or pipeline where people and organizations from anywhere can interact among themselves and with others from their countries of birth or ancestry, and host countries, to harness, exchange, and transfer opportunities to bridge any developmental gaps between people or nations according to their needs and means in a win-win framework.
To achieve that goal and satisfy our customers, we provide services in more than 70 areas of interest. However, once in our site, some visitors may want certain services or products that we don’t have.To ensure that our customers are satisfied, and that we can help them have products and services we cannot directly offer, DiasporaEngager partners with other companies to display some of their products or a link to their website on our site. In other words, through our affiliate program, we basically introduce your site and your products to our customers so that you can offer them products and services that we can’t provide them. To do that, DiasporaEngager places a link of your site or a snippet of codes on its website. Depending on your need, we can place your affiliate link in emails, webpages, or in our newsletter.
Besides, if you have a snippet of codes that we can plug into our site so that you automatically place relevant link ads in our page, we can also put that on the site. We can also display the link on our website as a banner video. Once the affiliate link is created, visitors of our site click on that link and take an action (e.g. buy your product, register to your website, or sign up for your newsletter). We (you and DiasporaEngager) track the sale periodically and when the set time comes, you write us a check based on our earnings.
2. How do you pay us from the affiliate program?
Our payment methods are flexible and negotiable. Our partners who display an affiliate program link on DiasporaEngager, can pay us based on:
- Cost per click (CPC): You pay us when our customers click on your ad/link regardless of whether product is bought or not;
- Cost per impression (CPI): You can pay us based on a flat fee (e.g. 1000 click/visitors);
- Cost per Action: You pay us when any of the visitors click on the affiliate link you put on our site and then take an action (e.g. register, buy, sign up for newsletter);
- Two Tier Referral program: You pay us when someone clicks on your affiliates link and then affiliates with you;
- If other payment options better suit you, please contact us to negotiate.
