There several ways to add affiliates to your program.
If the affiliates do not yet exist
Invite affiliates via the shareable link
Share the link pointing to your program's sign up page. You can find it by clicking on 'Programs' > Select the specific program. You can also retrieve the invite link for a program from your Affiliates Overview.
We've also added nifty buttons that make it easy to share these in social media channels, such as Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn.
Manually add affiliates to your program
On your Affiliates Overview page, click on "New affiliate".
This opens a window that gives you two options for adding an affiliate:
- Add via form
- Import affiliates via .CSV file
Inviting/switching existing affiliates to a new program?
If your affiliates already exist in your Tapfiliate account, you can add them to a new program using Batch Actions. This way affiliates will have access to a their new program Assets and marketing materials, while still using their previous login credentials!
This is also useful in the case that you'd like to switch an affiliate from one program to another - simply add them to the new program, and disapprove them from the old one.
Do bear in mind, however, that a new link will be generated for the new program, and once disapproved, their old referral link will not work.
To ensure that any old links that they've shared are valid for the new program, contact the affiliate and inform them how they can change their old referral code before you disapprove them. This way, their previous referral code can be released and used in their new referral link.
