Important instructions for reading this post…

1. I really wanted to name this article like this:

Why You Should Join The Share A Sale Affiliate Network If You’re Serious About WordPress.

But the reality is that I spent all my day trying to cash a ShareASale check and it wasn’t pretty. (I ended up soaked in sweat even though I had a cold shower before going outside)

So I’m leaving that boring headline Share A Sale Affiliate Network And First Check Odissey instead which sounds more like what happened and…

2. I’ll be as brief as possible as an attention span experiment for you. (and because it makes me feel smart to say random stuff like that)

In fact, I’m going to start with the best part and finish with the boring part and see what happens.

The WIIFM Element

That weird looking acronym means “what’s in it for me?“.

And for addressing that, I made a quick video opening the check envelope (bo-ring!) and revealing how much I made (ok, that’s more… Me Gusta!)

It’s not one dollar in revenue but it’s not thousands either… so let’s check it out now, shall we?

Note: I had to re-upload the video without the sound FX
as they somehow messed the screen feed… bummer!

So What Is The Share A Sale Affiliate Network Again?

Now that I (may) have your attention, Share A Sale is a real big affiliate network company.

They administer a lot of the best premium wordpress themes out there and you can also sell other type of services and even physical merchandise.

For now, I have been focusing only on promoting software services (wordpress themes) like Thesis, Studiopress, Premise and Headways.

But you can literally be an affiliate for dozens or even hundreds of different companies, products and services.

That’s your call.

How To Join The Share A Sale Affiliate Network

To join the ShareASale as an affiliate, all you have to do is create a free account here and then request to be an affiliate for the products or services that you’re interested in promoting.

Always remember to do your due diligence.

Read the terms of service, affiliate agreements, all the small print you can find out so you stay on the legal side of things and keep the record straight with the hand that feeds.

I agree that the last sentences were boring but you need to know all those bits if you’re taking the make money online thing seriously.

How To Request To Promote A Service On Share A Sale

This is very easy and really intuitive.

You look for the merchant you’re interested in, and then just request to promote.

I believe you need to give some general information on how are you planning to promote and what’s your main site.

I have never been declined from a company before but then again, I don’t have that much experience with them either.

Use common sense and I think everything will be alright for you.

And The Check Odissey?

Sorry that I lost interest in telling you all about my odissey trying to cash the check but I think it’s not important anymore.

I recently learnt that I should be writing for YOU and not about ME so this is my new improvement on the blog, right here, right now.

Conclusion

This is the most money I have earnt in one day as an affiliate marketer (check the video to know the amount)

The amount is not important what is important for me is that apparently I’m able to cash the checks. (I still haven’t, is a slow process)

Now the next step is to kick it up a notch and start promoting heavily now.

I didn’t focus much on telling you how to join (hence the name of the article) but if you’re interested I can possibly record a video on how to request to promote a new offer.

I can’t show you how to sign up for a new account though because I already have one account there.

If there’s anything I missed, please let me know in the comments.

Take care and speak soon!
