TOP SECRET INFO
One friendly reminder we want to give you right off the bat is that for now—other than the actual dates—this sale is not to be advertised or shared with anyone! Please DO NOT announce any of the products or the bundle price pre-sale without our express permission.
Thank you so much guys; this is for your own good... really!
Make A Test Purchase
Follow the instructions outlined below, so you can replicate the customer purchase experience AND access all of the products in the bundle. The more familiar you are with the offering, the more comfortable you will be selling the bundle.
Keep in mind that we're giving you TOP SECRET access to the bundle content—as well as the sales page—so please keep the details out of your pre-sale promotions.
It's imperative that you test your unique Affiliate URL by making a TEST PURCHASE.
- LOG IN to your Affiliate Account – https://5daydeal.com/affiliate-area/on-boarding/
(If you need to reset your password, you can do so here.)
- In your Affiliate Account, you'll see that we've assigned you a single-use ONE TIME TEST LINK. It will look like this:
- COPY your unique TEST LINK, and then PASTE your TEST LINK into that new tab or window, and then follow the instructions there. You will be directed to the sales page where you can purchase the bundle (the big green button at the top), and then please say yes to both up-sell offers during the checkout confirmation process.
- During checkout, you will need to ADD your payment information, ACCEPT the T&Cs, and then CLICK the Place Order button. Your credit card (or PayPal account) will be charged $12.00, but don't worry, it's not our beer fund... 100% of your test purchase goes to our charity partners. If you are logged in as an affiliate, please do not change your email during the checkout process.
Your test purchase should include the following items:
- The Complete Photography Bundle - 2019 - IV
- Pro Bundle Add-On - Photography Bundle - 2019
- Charity Bonus - Photography Bundle - 2019
Once you've completed the test purchase, please REVIEW the email receipt and DOWNLOAD/ACCESS the products you want to review more thoroughly.
After purchase, you should be able to see 1 new referral from your purchase in the Sales Referral section.
We are still waiting for some products/access codes in order to upload them to our system. Our apologies for the inconvenience and we'll be sure to update you once those are ready to preview (they will either be added to your download list, or you'll be sent a separate notification on how to access them; either way, you will not be required to re-purchase the bundle).
Review The Sales Page
We're still working on it, BUT we'd love to show you what's in store. When you test your affiliate URL, you will also gain access to view the TOP SECRET sales page. After your test purchase, please check out the sale page and make sure your product price, images and description all seem correct.
If you see something wonky, please connect with us in the Facebook group right away.
Share Your Marketing Plan
The more we know about your marketing plans, the more we can help you increase your conversion rate and increase your commissions. Share your plan with us here asap.
Our most successful sellers roll up their sleeves and dedicate time to building a great marketing plan. These affiliates have found that 5+ email campaigns—as well as daily social media posts—(per sale) result in the best conversion rates. Prepare as many pieces as possible before the sale to increase your chances of success. Maybe offer some free tips with every email so even those who are not interested in purchasing the bundle find good value in the email.
Throughout the sale, you can log in to your Affiliate Account and check out marketing tools, stats, revenue info, and download leads (if you're an exclusive partner) via your Affiliate Dashboard.
The SALES TOOLS section is where we're populating the marketing collateral you'll need to promote the sale. It's a work-in-progress section and will be updated almost daily. If you need a specific graphic or text element, please email us or leave a comment in the private Facebook group.
The Product List
In the SALES TOOLS section of your Affiliate Dashboard, you can view the bundle product list (incl. the overall price point and discount value). This gets tweaked leading up to the sale, so be sure to check that folder from time to time.
Please be sure to reference or tag contributors in your email campaigns and social posts, as this will add credibility to your marketing efforts.
Contributor Sanity Check
If you're a Contributor, please check the Sales page (use the top secret password: open123) to review the description and images for your product(s). Should you wish to change/update anything, simply contact us via the Facebook Group or email the details/files to [email protected] and we'll make the adjustments right away.
Bonus Offering Rules
IF you promise your own referral customers a privately distributed bonus product, please adhere to the following requirements:
- You must not distribute the bonus until the refund period has expired—thirty-six (36) days from the sale launch—and this delayed timing must be clearly communicated to your referred customers pre-purchase.
- The bonus $ value must not exceed the price of the bundle.
- You will need to email 5DayDeal a copy of your Bonus offering — including details on how it will be distributed—no later than fourteen (14) days pre-sale. 5DayDeal reserves the right to distribute your bonus offering to ensure a seamless customer experience should any issues arise.
- You will provide the bonus to anyone who requests it and has also purchased the bundle through your Affiliate URL. You can verify their purchase via the Affiliate Dashboard.
- Your bonus offering should be a Download Product or Registered/Coded Product, not a discount/refund transaction. The bundle is already heavily discounted, so rebates detract from the value of your sale and the bundle event as a whole.
- You may limit the number physical bonuses you offer (i.e., t-shirts, books, etc.); however, all eligible recipients (as outlined above) must be provided equal opportunity to receive those limited items.
DO NOT refer to your bonus offering as free with purchase. This detracts from the value of your product, as well as the bundle itself. Think ADDED VALUE!
DO be generous. Occasionally, you may have someone who did not come via your link ask for your bonus. In this case, we would ask that—for a good customer service and overall 5DayDeal experience—you give them the same bonus. This is typically only a handful of people who are either confused on whose link they clicked or are trying to game the system, but we want them to be happy either way if possible.
Affiliate Account Access
About six (6) weeks before the sale, we'll activate your Affiliate Account and give you access to Sales Tools via your Affiliate Dashboard so you can access the resources you need to complete your marketing efforts. We'll then invite you to use a 1-Time Test Link that will enable you to go through the customer experience yourself, as well as download/access the available products included in the bundle.
NOTE: Affiliate Accounts will only be activated for partners who have completed their application and have submitted a signed contract; final product files (for contributing partners) are also required prior to activation.
We'll be launching the Giveaway entry form on our main webpage. This is a powerful way for you to get your audience excited about the bundle and ultimately establish those all-too-valuable customer browser cookies (especially from those who only follow you via a social network vs. email subscribers). During the sale, winners will be announced multiple times a day. Start thinking now about how you can leverage these events to best prepare your audience for the sale.
If you would like to sign on to be an Exclusive Partner for this sale, please email us here and we will add 15% commission to your affiliate rate, as well as enable downloading of sale email lead data from your account. Please be sure to follow any national or international laws regarding customer privacy and right to opt-in/out.
NOTE: If material provided is deemed Registered/Coded Product, there will be a 10% reduction in commissions, regardless of whether or not an exclusive agreement has been signed.
Charity Update + Goal
We're thrilled to have you on board for the 7th Complete Photography Bundle. 5DayDeal has raised over $1.5M+ to support various causes to date!
Our goal for this sale is another $80K in charity support and—with your partnership, planning, and promotion—we plan to blow that out of the water.
