Become a ClipScribe Affiliate

Be a part of the video gold rush and earn cash by promoting ClipScribe to your sphere of influence!

The Basics:

1.  Earn 20% of recurring ClipScribe sales until your referred customer cancels their subscription or it expires.

3.  Payments will generally be paid via PayPal on each Friday 14 days after purchase was made.  (Referrals will not be paid on refunded purchases and we have a 7 day refund window.)

Affiliate Registration

Affiliate Registration

We review and moderate all affiliate registrations, and we appreciate your accurate and honest information. Please note that the review process may take a few days - we know you are eager to join our team of affiliates, and we appreciate your patience!

If you're approved, awesome! You'll be given a unique referral ID that you can use to promote ClipScribe via referral links.

Commissions and payouts

You'll earn a sweet 20% commission when a customer purchases a new ClipScribe subscription using your referral link.

Additionally, you will continue to earn on each monthly and annual recurring payment made by your referred customer.  (If your customer cancels and then re-subscribes, this will not be counted, however.)

While our prices can change from time to time here are some example payout options:

EARNING POTENTIAL:

  • You can earn up to $56 each year referral for each recurring annual subscription you refer.
  • You can earn up to $6.40 a month ($76 a year) per each recurring monthly subscription.

PLUS!

We pay out affiliate commissions in USD directly to your PayPal account approximately 14 days after the sale is made as long as the referral

As we have a 7-day money back guarantee, we only pay commissions that are older than 7 days.

In order to receive a payout for your referrals, you must register your paypal account.

We do not allow referrals to be generated on your own purchases.

Here are the details of our program in summary:

  • To register as an affiliate you should ideally an active ClipScribe subscription of your own.  The best way to promote ClipScribe is by posting videos made with ClipScribe.
  • You'll receive 20% commission for every new ClipScribe sale you refer and 50% on every purchase of Craig Lillard's Social Video Training programs purchased through the ClipScribe site.
  • We pay in USD
  • Commissions older than 7 days will be paid 14 days after the original sale.
  • Referrals are paid out to your PayPal account
  • Referrals cannot be generated on your own purchases (this includes using a different email address).

Referral cookie lifetime

When a potential customer clicks on your referral link, a cookie is stored in their browser to track your referral. The cookie is then stored for a generous 30 days to give your referred customers time to decide if they wish to purchase ClipScribe, or ask us any pre-sale questions they may have.

A referral won't be awarded if:

  1. The customer uses a different browser to purchase than the one they originally used to visit our site (because the cookie does not exist in that browser)
  2. The customer purchases after 30 days (because the cookie will expire).

Refunded purchases

Referrals older than 7 days and in good standing (i.e. the purchase has not been refunded) will be included with each commission payout (if the commission balance totals $50.00 or over). If a purchase is refunded, a commission won't be paid out for that referral.

We reserve the right to reject affiliate commissions for any reason. Commission rejections may occur for the following reasons:

  1. The sale that the referral was based on was refunded
  2. The method by which the referral was generated was in violation of our promotional policies (see below) or violated the spirit of the Affiliate Agreement.

Affiliate news and updates

By becoming an affiliate you agree to receive emails from ClipScribe. These emails will be sent to affiliates only, on an ad-hoc basis, and may include important information regarding the ClipScribe affiliate program. These emails will also provide you with relevant news and updates to help you effectively promote ClipScribe. As an affiliate you may be privy to embargoed or time-sensitive information in these emails (this information may only be promoted after an embargo is lifted). And we won't spam you, ever - promise!

Affiliate Application Rejection

We reserve the right to reject affiliate applications for any reason. We also reserve the right to choose whether we provide an explanation or reasoning for affiliate application rejection. Below are just a few reasons why an application may be rejected (this is not an exhaustive list):

  • Affiliate applications for websites that sell, advertise or engage in pornography, phishing scams, spamming, illegal business practices, or that include any material infringing on National or International Copyright will be rejected.
  • Affiliate applications for websites that we do not believe are aligned with our industry or business may be rejected.
  • If you apply to become an affiliate and you have not purchased an extension license, your application may be rejected.
  • Affiliate applicants with websites that re-sell any of our products will be rejected.
  • Websites considered inappropriate by ClipScribe will be rejected.

Inappropriate websites:

The following types of sites are not permitted to become an affiliate: adult sites, sites that display adult material or banners, sites that promote violence, hatred or bigotry, sites that promote or engage in illegal activity, including (but not limited to), hacking, cracking, nulled, and warez sites. Affiliate applications for inappropriate websites will be rejected, and we reserve the right to choose whether or not to provide a rejection reason.

Questions regarding your application

When you apply to become an affiliate we may email you at the email address you have supplied with some questions regarding your application. This may be because:

  • We didn't understand something in your application, or,
  • We'd like to learn a bit more about how you will promote ClipScribe and need a little more detail.

If we reach out to you and we haven't heard back within 7 days, your application may be rejected. If your initial application is rejected, you are welcome to reapply to become an affiliate and provide us with more detail for reconsideration.

Dormant affiliate accounts

Please don't leave us! We encourage all of our affiliates to actively promote ClipScribe to keep earning referrals. If we can help you come up with ideas on how to promote ClipScribe, please let us know - we're here for you! An affiliate account is considered dormant if no visits have been generated after a 6-month period. A dormant affiliate account will be temporarily deactivated if no visits have been generated after 6 months. But we don't even want to go there right now, right?! Let's work together to help you start earning some cash!

ClipScribe Affiliate Program Policies

Allowed and super cool promotional methods

How you promote ClipScribe is reflected in the commission you earn! We encourage the use of promotional methods that add value to ClipScribe and bring us legitimate, loyal customers. We love it when our team of affiliates blog about affiliate marketing and mention ClipScribe.

Here are a few examples of awesome promotional methods to earn more commission:

  • Tell clients, customers or friends about ClipScribe, and give them your affiliate referral link
  • Write a review or a blog post about affiliate marketing or ClipScribe and link to our site with your referral link
  • Reach out to a broad audience with your social network accounts. Tweet about us on Twitter with your affiliate referral link, post about us on Facebook with your affiliate link, or communicate to your Linkedin followers about affiliate marketing with your affiliate link. Spam-free promotion is a great way to get more referrals!
  • Provide value to others by answering related questions on other sites with helpful responses, and using your referral link in your replies.

Prohibited and super uncool promotional methods

We love and back our product 100%, and we are very careful with how it's promoted, so we want affiliates who are 100% behind us too! The prohibited promotional methods listed below aren't meant to scare you off - they're here to protect you, and us, and our customers from any freaky or fraudulent activity, which is something we take pretty seriously. We know you'll understand. ? But here they are in writing just in case you're not totally sure what is and what isn't allowed.

  • ClipScribe may not be promoted on any type of coupon or consolidated product review sites
    Customers who are searching for a coupon are already in the market for ClipScribe, so this method adds no value to ClipScribe.  If you would like to promote a ClipScribe coupon it should be one on your own website or via your own social media channels.
  • Paid advertising using your affiliate link is prohibited

Buying ads through services like Google AdWords, social ads, or retargeting ads and using our brand keywords and your affiliate link will result in affiliate account deactivation.

  • Any type of spam is prohibited
    Links, ads, emails, comments... any type of spam. Please respect the posting rules of any 3rd-party websites you use to promote ClipScribe. P.S. This is not an exhaustive list of spam methods; if we decide that your activity is spam, it's spam.
  • Any illegal activity or activity deemed offensive by us is prohibited
    This may result in referrals being rejected and/or your affiliate account being deactivated. See above for allowed and super cool promotional methods!
  • We're flattered, but please don't pretend to be professionally associated with ClipScribe
    Affiliates aren't employees of ClipScribe.com and have no employee rights.
  • Pretending to actually be ClipScribe.com is prohibited
    Cloning our site, copying our site, using our copyrighted site assets, and pretending that a site created by you is an official ClipScribe site is unethical and prohibited (this includes using services that automatically clone websites, or place them into iframes).
  • Again, false promotion to customers that you are endorsed or operated by ClipScribe is prohibited (and super uncool).

If you're unsure or concerned that some activity you're about to proceed with may be considered prohibited, please ask us. ?

Consequences of not-cool promotional methods

If your promotional methods step outside of these terms, your referrals may be rejected and we may disable your affiliate account. We reserve the right to do this and may or may not notify you in the instance that this occurs. Please use allowed promotional methods, and help us to help you succeed as an affiliate!

Inappropriate websites

The following types of sites are not permitted to become an affiliate: adult sites, sites that display adult material or banners, sites that promote violence, hatred or bigotry, sites that promote or engage in illegal activity, including (but not limited to), hacking, cracking, nulled, and warez sites. Affiliate applications for inappropriate websites will be rejected, and we reserve the right to choose whether or not to provide a rejection reason.
