At Out Of The Grey Coffee®, we understand what it means to be an affiliate. Not only that, but we place a lot of value on our trusted affiliates, which is why we want to help you succeed. From competitive commissions and bonuses to promotion deals and coupons, we want our coffee and tea affiliates to feel as though they are an integral part of our business.
Since the goal with our affiliate marketing program is to increase our sales, our commissions are based exclusively on successful transactions. Starting with a competitive commission of 10% per sale, we use a popular affiliate platform called ShareASale to manage payouts and to function as a hub for any creative content desired. Although we use ShareASale as our hub for affiliate commissions, we are open to other alternative methods to track sales.
ShareASale is an extremely popular affiliate marketing network based out of Chicago. While they were recently acquired by Awin, another massive affiliate marketing network, their platform continues to grow each year. It is the ideal place for both a coffee and tea affiliate (you) and a coffee and tea affiliate merchant (Out Of The Grey Coffee®) to have a business relationship.
While you will have access to all the tools and data feeds that we provide, you will also have access to joining hundreds of other programs, not just the ones within the coffee industry. If you have any questions with the platform, their support team is amazing.
Finding the best affiliate programs can be a challenge. First, you need to find a brand that is worth promoting. For most, this means that you should like the product and be compensated fairly for promoting it. Additionally, you need to find a business that has high conversions and that can keep up with supply and demand, as well as provide you with the tools needed to get the job done.
The first step to become an affiliate for Out Of The Grey Coffee®, is to click this link AFFILIATE PROGRAM APPLICATION and register yourself on the ShareASale network which is one of the largest affiliate hubs in the game.
Once you have completed the onboarding process and have applied to our program, we will either accept or deny you within days after we have had time to review your account.
To be honest, there are hundreds of affiliate programs. However, we do something a bit different compared to our competitors. We go the extra mile to offer a level of support you will not easily find elsewhere. For starters, we use a 45-day cookie, which means if you refer a visitor to our site, they have over 6 weeks to make a commissionable purchase, for you to still get paid. Our average cart (only coffee and tea) value is $70. We have a growing affiliate program and are an emerging online retailer. We provide attractive creatives, an updated product feed, regular newsletters with latest offers, updates, and bonuses. We are always willing to provide you with product information and promotional content. We have a resolute and experienced affiliate team available to find ways to collaborate with you. We also do not reverse commissions on returns. Firstly, because our returns are almost nil. Secondly, if a customer is unhappy, you still made the sale, so you still earned the commission.
If this coffee affiliate program sounds like one, you would like to promote, we have included rules down below that will determine whether we accept your request. If you have any questions or if anything is unclear, do not hesitate to reach out to us.
Paid Advertisement and PPC
We have no issues with you running Ads to target potential buyers. The only types of Ads that we ask that you do not run, are any that target branded keywords. Some examples of this would include Out Of The Grey Coffee®, out of the grey coffee company, outofthegreycoffee.com. For our complete list, be sure to check out the PPC rules within our ShareASale account.
Promotions, Discount and Coupon Sites
If you run an honest website and the sole purpose is to pass on discounts to your viewers, we manage these on a case-by-case basis. While we want you to pass on the savings to your viewers, giving them that slight push to make a purchasing decision, dishonest websites provide fake codes to their viewers in the hopes that they click and still buy anyway.
If you do not have a website and plan to promote through more social or physical means, we expect you to uphold this honesty as well. If you feel that a discount is needed to get your viewers to buy, reach out to us and let our team know.
While our typical affiliate uses their special link for their website, there are other avenues to pursue. Whether you are an influencer on major social platforms like TikTok, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snap Chat, YouTube, etc., or simply have a massive email list, you can take part as a coffee and tea affiliate for Out Of The Grey Coffee®.
If you are part of the "New Rich" or consider yourself a digital nomad, chances are, you already know what affiliate marketing all is about. For those of you that do not, let me do my best to give you a rundown.
To put it plainly, affiliate marketing is a form of advertisement where you are compensated by someone else for successful sales, leads and/or traffic you generate. To track these types of conversions, it is usually accomplished using a session cookie that can track where the click came from.
