Welcome to the C1 Affiliate Program. We hope to cover some common questions for you here so that you can get up and running quickly.
The first thing to know is that this is really really easy. Find your custom link in your account and always push your traffic to us using your link. We'll handle everything else.
Marketing materials are provided within your account. We do have more and we'll be modifying this page to point you to them as we make them live.
Understand. A web browser cookie is set for your traffic as it comes to us from your link. This ties your traffic to you temporarily. When the visitor makes an order, the visitor and future online orders are credited to you for life. If your traffic does not convert in 30 days, they can become someone else's customer if they click on another affiliate link.
When placing text links on web pages, use this format:
<a href="yourcustomlinkhere">Condition 1 Hard Cases</a>
This is a basic html link code. It contains the link text "Condition 1 Hard Cases". We are asking you to modify this part to make it your own. It helps us if you leave the words 'hard cases' in it, but other than that, be creative. "I sell my hard cases here" or "Get your own hard cases" or "rolling rifle hard cases".
Use your link on your website, on social media, message boards, apps in your email... everywhere you can.
For deep linking. If you want to link directly to a product with a long URL, simply add your custom link onto the end and test it. If the page loads correctly, you're good to go. If not, check your work. A sample deep link looks like this:
I've added my personal link onto the end, "?p=H14VIbCjO"
Be repetitive without being spammy. In sales, the squeaky wheel gets the grease. The key is to present yourself in front of your audience at regular intervals to stay on top of their minds for the times when they actually need a hard case. Keep people on your lists by providing them some value. Maybe that's an education point or free download or something. Repetitive sales pitches are the quickest reasons for unsubscribes.
Use your link in your signatures. Then leave real relevant comments on social media posts. People will read your intelligent comment and then notice your signature and follow it.
Create memes online and add your link. You never know. Yours could be the next viral video.
Spam. This is the fastest way to get banned from your affiliate account. Your downline will be removed from you.
Don't alter the C1 logo. Make sure it is presented as-is, and proportional. You can make it smaller. Making them larger than 100% deteriorates the quality. Marketing people are sensitive creatures.
Don't try to game the system. Follow the rules and get paid.
