About the firstwriter.com Affiliate Program

What is an Affiliate Program? Affiliate Programs are common throughout the Internet, and offer website owners a means of profiting from their websites. Affiliates generate sales for commercial websites, and in return receive a percentage of the value of those sales.

How Does it Work? When you join the firstwriter.com Affiliate Program you will be supplied with a range of banners, search boxes, and textual links to place on your site with your own, unique, linking code. Where, which, and how many you use is entirely up to you. When a visitor to your site uses one of your links to firstwriter.com their activity will be tracked by our affiliate technology, and, if that user proceeds to enter a competition or take out a subscription your account will be credited with either 15% of the value of the payment (competitions) or 1.05 for subscriptions (that's over 50% of the value of a monthly subscription!). You will also be able to log-in 24hrs a day to view real-time statistics and see how your links are performing.

Who Can Join? Anyone with a website! We can make payment to affiliates anywhere in the world, so your location is no restriction. Obviously, links will work better from sites with relevant content (sites on writing, poetry, fiction, competitions, the arts, etc.) but this is far from a requirement. No special technical knowledge is required (all code will be generated for you - all you have to do is paste it into your website), and application can be completed in seconds online.

How much money can I make? This is entirely up to you! It all depends on how much exposure you give our products, and how enthusiastically you promote them. Since we only pay you when you produce sales it is impossible for your advertising to ever cost more than it is worth, so we place no limit on how much money you can earn! If you could produce a thousand entries a week at 2.50 each we would have no problems paying you 4,500.00 at the end of each quarter!

Linking

How do I link? You must link using your own unique linking code, which can be obtained by logging in to the members area and clicking on one of the linking options in navigation bar and following the instructions given there. Linking in any other way than described in this section will result in the failure of the tracking system and the failure of crediting of commissions to your account.

Back to Questions

Why don't my links work? Make sure you are only linking using links given in the linking section of the members' area. You must make sure the HTML code is reproduced exactly as it is given - try to avoid using WYSIWYG HTML editors like FrontPage as they can alter code without warning. If you do use a program like this, edit the hyperlink or search box directly in HTML. The maintenance of your links is your responsibility and firstwiter.com will not accept any responsibility for commissions lost through incorrect linking.

Back to Questions

Why don't the image links I generate display a graphic? When pasting the HTML into your page you must not alter the code in any way. Try and paste directly into the code, as HTML editors such as FrontPage can sometimes alter the code without warning. Do not change the filename, and make sure you upload the image into the same folder of your website as the page displaying it. If you wish to change the name of the file, or the folder in which it resides, you will have to edit the HTML accordingly. If you have addressed all the above points but are still having problems contact support@firstwriter.com with details of your problem and the image involved.
