Krause Publications has launched an affiliate program with the aim of giving hobbyists the chance to be rewarded for promoting KP products.
Collectors, businesses, Web site operators or any other party interested in coin and paper money collecting can earn a referral bonus of 12 percent on any purchase from KrauseBooks.com that they generate by participating in the affiliate program.
This payout is up to 5 percent more than other competitive referral programs, said Scott Marinaro, manager of content licensing and syndication for KP.
“Coin and paper money collectors worldwide have enjoyed our books, magazines and other products, and often recommend them to their friends and fellow enthusiasts,” said Marinaro. “With these enthusiasts in mind, we created our affiliate program to financially reward them for continuing to promote our books, CDs, DVDs, and digital downloads.”
The program is free to join and easy to use. Interested parties should visit www.connectcommerce.com/secure/partner_app_lalt.html?ccmid=K199937 and fill out an application. Once reviewed and approved, affiliates can then download buttons and banner ads with tracking links built in. Affiliates simply run the ads on their Web sites, blogs, or social networking pages and begin earning money.
