Be Our Affiliate! Or don't?
It may be a little-known fact, but Come As You Are has had an online affiliate program for years, but until recently, our system wasn't very user friendly, and well, we're not sure how we feel about affiliate programs. Mostly we find that online affiliate programs are set up to benefit the sex shop and not the blogger. It's all about free advertising, shady business practices, and generating in-bound links on the backs of people who provide the internet with information and entertainment for free. Heck, we take issue with most marketing practices on and offline, but we realized recently that there weren't any good, sex-positive Canadian sex shops offering an affiliate program, and so very many of you have asked us about setting something up. If you know us at all, you know there's nothing we like more than making all of you happy, so we've officially launched the Come As You Are awesome affiliate program and we're fairly enthusiastic about it.
Over the past few months, we've set up some solid reporting tools so you can see in real-time all of the orders we've received via your website, and because we always pledge to be worthy of your trust, we'll ensure that you get accurate data and paid out for your referrals when you want. Even though we've always had a few affiliates, this program is officially new, and we'll be adding features as we go - so let us know if there's something we can create that will serve you better. Currently, we have logos available for your use in all sorts of colours and resolutions, and some standard web banners you can display on your website or blog, but we'd much rather that you use text links and that you only link to us using your affiliate code when it is actually relevant to your readers.
If you're a porn star or sex worker or someone who has a lot of fans, you can combine our wishlist and affiliate systems so that you actually make money whenever one of your fans buys you something from your own wishlist. Not only will you get that new Aslan Leather harness you've been eyeing, but you'll also receive a commission on the sale. Just because our anti-capitalist principles dictate that we don't believe in commission, that doesn't mean you can't!
From time to time, we'll offer 'deals' for your readers - currently, anyone you refer via our affiliate system will automatically receive free delivery (within Canada) from us.
If you're interested, let us know a bit about you and your website below and we'll get in touch with you about becoming an affiliate within a few days!
