The Alliance of Independent Authors Affiliate Program rewards members for spreading the word by paying 30% of first-year membership fees back. When you join ALLi, you automatically become an affiliate, if you wish. And only ALLi members can be affiliates: another great member benefit from the Alliance of Independent Authors.
If you’re a member, the Alliance of Independent Authors Affiliate Program enables you to earn some of your membership fees back by spreading the word about our alliance to your author friends.
It’s our way of saying thank you for taking the time and trouble to recommend us to other authors or aspiring authors.
And your author friends will thank you too.
The Alliance of Independent Authors Affiliate Program
How Does the ALLi Affiliate Program Work?
Many of our members find they earn their membership fee back soon after joining, just by writing an email to an author friend or two, to recommend the organization, using the unique links and badges provided by the Alliance of Independent Authors Affiliate Program.
Use your email link whenever you write about ALLi to potentially earn back 30% of any new joiner’s membership fee.
We also offer a variety of badges you can put on your website or social media, which have the same effect.
Anyone who clicks on those links or badges and then subsequently joins ALLi will be credited to you.
To Get Your Affiliate Links and Badges: Visit the Links, badges and banners page
Select Banners and Badges
Select a banner or badge from the drop-down menu. As you select, you’ll see different options and sizes pop up, so you can see what they will look like on your website and pick your preference.
Instructions for Download
Here are instructions for you or your website developer.
Use as many of these banners as often as you wish. Paste the code that pops up on your website, on social media or anywhere else that works for you.
As well as the badges and banners for your website, take particular note of the ‘Direct Link’ (in yellow). It’s the one delivers the best results, when sent to an author you think should know about ALLi (see below). You can use this link in emails, on social media, or whenever you recommend ALLi. The more you use it, the more you’ll earn.
Email Your Author Friends
The affiliates who are most successful each month are those who make regular recommendations by email, in their books and blog posts and on social media.
A personal email to someone you know, genuinely explaining the benefits you’re enjoying, has the most impact.
Here is a sample email letter you can modify.
No Spamming Please
Please don’t annoy or spam anyone in an effort to get them to join ALLi.
If you are including the affiliate link in any communications (like an email), keep it personal and relevant, without hype. Our value is evident to those who are a good fit for us; it doesn’t need to be exaggerated.
Just truthfully tell your writer friends and contacts what you’ve enjoyed and how membership has been of benefit to you and remember to use those links.
