How It Works

We use the Thinkific platform to manage our courses and products. It only takes a few minutes to set up an account.

SIGN-UP HERE

Once you have created your account, please contact us to join our affiliate program.

Pre-approval is required of our affiliates to insure high quality partners. 

Once you are approved, all you need to do is log into your affiliate account and put some of the graphics, links and text on your site. The system will provide your specific link directly to Desktop Documentaries and track all sales.

The affiliate cookie is good for 30-days. However, if someone purchases with your affiliate link during those first 30-days, they are your customer forever. Meaning, if they purchase again after that initial 30-day period you'll get credit for the sale. 

Your affiliate cookie applies to ANY product sold (not just the product you promoted).


Why 30 Days?

The 30-day cookie policy is in benefit to all our affiliates. Here's a quote from Thinkific:

"For example, what if we set the cookie for 365 days. If Affiliate A promotes to her list and sends Visitor B to your site, then Affiliate C has no incentive to promote for 365 days because Affiliate A gets all the credit. Even if Visitor B has forgotten about your site and then on the 364th day come back via Affiliate C's link, credit still goes to Affiliate A. So a shorter duration is fairer to affiliates in general, especially new ones.  

The setup in Thinkific is a sort of best of both worlds. The initial cookie lasts 30 days, but if a customer makes a purchase within that window then the subsequent purchases go to the original affiliate (essentially making the cookie duration unlimited)."

Getting Started

We work with each affiliate individually to structure how the products will be promoted on your site, in your newsletter, or elsewhere.  However, it's YOUR endorsement that makes the difference in sales conversion.

To join our affiliate program, please Contact Desktop Documentaries with your website, contact information and suggestions for the placement on your site. We are open to offering a discount code to special partners for their subscribers - especially if you are just launching and sending a newsletter blast.

We pay our affiliates the first week of each month for the previous month's sales. For example, all the sales in January will be sent out during the first week of February.
