1. What do I need to become an affiliate?
Nothing! Except your desire to be an affiliate. You don't even need a website (although having your own website helps). You can promote The Black Business School via tweeting, posting links on Facebook, and LinkedIn, or simply emailing people you know with your unique affiliate link to The Black Business School classes. If you have your own website, simply use our affiliate links on your site. All you need to do is to send a visitor to our site via a special link (called 'affiliate link'), and if he or she signs up for any of our classes, you will get commission.

2. How do I know I will be paid for my referral?
The Black Business School affiliate program is powered by Post Affiliate Pro, the leading affiliate tracking software. Post Affiliate Pro uses a combination of cookies and IP addresses to track referrals for the best possible reliability. When the visitor follows your affiliate link to TheBlackBusinessSchool.com, our affiliate system registers this referral and places a cookie on his or her computer. When the visitor purchases a class, the affiliate system checks for the cookie (and if not found, checks for an IP address of referral) so that it can credit your account 30% of the class purchase value. This process is absolutely automatic. All your referrals will be properly tracked.

3. How is the payment handled?
You will be paid through The Black Commerce network to your PayPal account. (You will be required to provide your PayPal details at sign up). Commissions are paid out on the 5th of every month, and are currently issued in US dollars.

4. How do I set up an account?
Setting up an account is very easy and it's completely FREE. You don't have to pay to become an affiliate. All you need to do is click on this Signup Form link and fill out the sign up form in its entirety. After a review from our affiliate manager, you will receive an email with your affiliate login details. As an affiliate of The Black Business School through The Black Commerce Network, you will have your own control panel where you will obtain your unique affiliate ID, see detailed statistics of traffic and sales you referred, learn through promotional news and training materials, and select from a variety of promotional banners and text links. Your next step would be to post the affiliate banners and links to your web site or social media page so that you can start sending potential students to TheBlackBusinessSchool.com.

5. What is the affiliate link?
An affiliate link is a special URL (website address) that contains within the URL name, a unique affiliate user name (like you set up at affiliate sign up.). This special URL is what you will be sharing with your visitors.
