Traditionally, by the time a book or service gets from the writer or producer into the hands of the audience … well, it goes through a lot of other hands in between. Each one of those hands takes a little bit of profit from of the top. Which generally means that things end up costing about five to six times what the writer or producer actually gets for creating the thing in the first place.
So, we figure that we would rather YOU and I split that money rather than give it to all those guys in the middle.
We want you to get HAPPI … that is join our Hickman Affiliate Publishing Promotion Incentive program. We gave it that long name because we like the sound of HAPPI. We need to get the word out about our writing seminars and in the coming spring about our new direct to the reader book series. I could either pay a lot of money for worthless advertising … or I can get your help and give you the money instead.
Now before you get the wrong idea with visions of having to invite your neighbors over and pushing writing seminars on them instead of time shares, just finish reading this. I write long books and you read them, too. This little article is nothing compared to slugging down the ‘Deathgate Cycle’…
- Someone is going to get this money … either you or the legions of wholesalers, retailers, advertisers and middlemen. I’d rather you got it than them.
- It costs you absolutely NOTHING to join. You have to provide enough information for us to pay you but it isn’t any more than you would give to any other online retailer with Paypal. The only difference is that we’re sending you money instead of the other way around.
- You can quit at any time without any problem or penalty: if you don’t like it five minutes after you sign up then quit. We’ll still be friends.
- Your data is secure: We don’t sell your name or information to anybody. You should have known better than to even think we would do something nasty with your data.
So all we are looking to do is get your help in finding a few great writers looking for that edge that will get their words both read and sold in the age of New Media publishing … and we need your help to do it.
We are offering this affiliate program to you so you will help spread the word about our online writing seminars and workshops … and we’ll pay you a commission for every new author who signs up. That’s right, by joining our affiliate program we will pay you a 30% commission on our online seminars … it’s easy and it’s free.
All you have to do is sign up for our program. You’ll need a Paypal account (we pay out commissions on the 15th of each month), a valid website and the desire to spread the word about our seminars. Once you sign up you’ll receive an email tell you what you need to do to sign into your new Affiliate control panel … and from there you can get the referral links, banners and items you need to start earning your commissions through your website, blog Facebook or Twitter pages.
That’s all you have to do … share those links … and anyone who signs up gets credited to you.
The system is entirely automated and administered by me (that’s Tracy Hickman) personally.
Become a Scribe’s Forge Affiliate … because we would rather pay YOU to help us find the next generation of writers!
