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 for the new program, while still using their previous login credentials! Do bear in mind, however, that a new link will be generated for the new program.
In the case that you'd like to change an affiliate's commission rate, simply use the affiliate groups feature to set them in a group and raise their reward. This also allows them to keep their existing referral link.
Pro tip: Affiliate links are created using the affiliates first and last name by default, but it's very easy for them to change their referral codes in their accounts.
