Affiliate Guidelines & FAQ’s

These rules and terms may be updated from time to time and absoluteDogs Ltd reserves the right to add to this as needed. 13th April 2020

We put this together to unlock a new level of support for you, your students and a way for you to quickly adapt to the changing world. We are all in this together and working as a team! This means there are a few affiliate rules.

Although you really do not need to, you can absolutely offer additional “bonuses” for signing up through you – e.g. regular coaching calls.

The amount of admin involved in cancelling and reactivating subscriptions should someone wish to benefit from these bonuses but (a) is already an existing member, or (b) have signed up using a different link means that we ask that you honour these bonuses should someone enquire about this regardless of whether they used your link or not – this is an abundance minded community.

Examples:
  • Existing members cannot unsubscribe to then subscribe through your link and we will be monitoring this.
  • If an existing member is an in-person student of yours, then providing them with the bonuses you are offering to new sign ups is fair regardless of the fact they did not use your link. Providing extra value for students is never a bad thing – love your students, lots.

Unsubscribing to resubscribe can be closely monitored and leads to increased admin and tech support, limiting our ability to offer the (unheard of) 50% within the affiliate programme – do not endanger this or your place as an affiliate KEY.

Advertise to your own students and audiences – do not advertise to absoluteDogs students, FaceBook pages or any of our groups. This includes private messaging anyone via an AbsoluteDogs group to avoid people being spammed (the exception to this is if they are already an in-person student of yours.)

absoluteDogs reserves the right to remove people from the affiliate programme (a) who do not adhere to the rules or (b) who stray outside of the ethos of the community or (c) who in any way act in a way that impacts the reputation of the parties involved.
