I just now set the affiliate fee to 80% for "building a cob style rocket mass heater"

https://permies.com/wiki/60211/Building-Cob-Style-Rocket-Mass



This is the standalone DVD - which I think is a really, really good DVD.  Although I may be a bit biased.  I would think folks with a youtube channel or blog could do a review of the dvd.  Or come up with a bunch of different topics around rocket mass heaters or wood heat and point to it.  

For people that are exploring getting started with affiliate programs this could be a good gateway.  

Here is the info about setting up an affiliate account here:

Set up your affiliate account, get your affiliate link for this video and then try posting it out to facebook or a local mailing list or whatever and see what happens.

Already got the account setup on here so good to go on that note. I just bought the domain for my blog and I will be taking an online course (free) from a site called problogger about setting up a blog as a business. Been listening to their podcast for a while and it seems good.

I'm trying to "do it right" and setup the blog from the start as a business instead of just a share what I'm doing and hope for money type of thing. Affiliate links are going to be a big part of it at the start - later I hope to switch to focusing on my own products. I appreciate the suggestion and I know I will be relying on this site a lot to help get the blog going.

I exchanged emails with a person the appears to have a lot more experience with affiliate stuff than I have.  That person made it clear that a 50% affiliate fee is the norm with big time affiliate people.  So I changed all of my other rocket mass heater stuff from 40% to 50%.  The HD streaming version of "cob style" is still set to 80%.  

So if you sell the 8-DVD as physical dvds for $110, then you get $55.

I'll try to get my other stuff changed also.

Maybe this youtube clip would be of help to folks trying to cash in on the 80% affiliate fee:

first, you might want to check out this thread where i announce an 80% affiliate fee for "building a cob style rocket mass heater"

Since this old thread is loaded with scubbly references, and scubbly is no more, then i think the thing to do is lock this thread and have all questions answered at the new thread.



Okay, but I do not see an answer to my question in this thread either. The question was: now that I already have an affiliate page, how do I find it again?

To find your affiliate page, go to the top of permies.com and go to the button that says MyStuff. Click this, and go to DM Threads- I am an Affiliate.

I was about to suggest a much longer path - but this short path is good!

There is a link at the bottom of every page that says "affiliate program" - i am looking into getting that to go directly to your affiliate stuff if you are logged in and signed up for the affiliate junk.
