To: All Alpha Nation Affiliates
From: Todd Lamb
If you’re like most affiliates or internet marketers, you may have a habit of skipping over long and boring affiliate agreements and anti spam policy pages. However, DO NOT skip this one! Why? Because WE DO NOT TOLERATE SPAM OR AFFILIATE PROGRAM ABUSE IN ANY WAY, SHAPE, OR FORM! If you break the rules, your clickbank account WILL BE SHUT DOWN AND YOU MAY FORFEIT YOUR EARNINGS! We will have clickbank shut down spammers if the rules are broken. Please read every word of this agreement so you know the rules!
AlphaNation.com AFFILIATE AGREEMENT
This agreement describes the terms and conditions for participation in the Alpha Nation e-book Affiliate Program. In this agreement, the term “Affiliate” refers to you (the applicant). In this agreement, Alpha Nation and/or AlphaNation.com refers to the product owner and publisher, AlphaNation.com, a product of Strength Works Inc.
The Alpha Nation affiliate program (AlphaNation.com) is administered entirely through a 3rd party affiliate management company called Clickbank (www.clickbank.com).
To enroll in the affiliate program, if they have not done so already, all affiliates must sign up on the clickbank website. The AlphaNation.com affiliate program is governed by all rules, regulations, terms and conditions dictated by clickbank.com’s Affiliate Site.
An affiliate account can be created by filling out and submitting the clickbank affiliate sign up form at clickbank.com. On that page, each new affiliate will be asked to choose a clickbank account name (also called a clickbank affiliate ‘nickname’), consisting of 5 – 10 letters and digits. This clickbank nickname will be used in the affiliate hoplink. When a prospective customer clicks on an affiliate’s hoplink the destination website will be www.AlphaNation.com.
Brand Bidding And Directly Linking To Discount Prohibited
Brand bidding is forbidden and any affiliate doing so will be blacklisted. Examples are bidding directly on the terms “Flat Belly Fix,” “Todd Lamb,” or bidding on the terms of any of our other program names or authors to rank your ads in search engines.
Directly linking to a discounted price outside the price featured on the affiliate hoplink provided on our affiliate resource page is forbidden and any affiliate doing so will be blacklisted. Examples are linking directly to a $27 coupon when the regularly priced front end is $37.
Affiliates will receive 75% of the revenue as a commission from orders placed through properly coded Affiliate links (unless noted otherwise for a particular product), less the charges outlined in the: ClickBank accounting policy page. Commissions may change at the discretion of the product publisher, AlphaNation.com.
For a sale to generate a commission to an Affiliate, the customer must complete the order form and remit full payment for the product ordered through the clickbank secure order system. Word of mouth referrals will not result in an affiliate commission being generated. Commissions will only be paid on sales that are made when the customer clicks through qualified, correctly structured Affiliate links. Properly coded links are the sole responsibility of the affiliate.
ClickBank will send a check for the applicable commissions within the framework of their payment policies: www.clickbank.com/paychecks.html. If any order that generated an affiliate commission is returned by the customer, or if there are any returned checks or charge backs, the amount will be deducted by ClickBank from the next payment due to the affiliate.
AlphaNation.com (via clickbank) will be solely responsible for processing every e-book order placed by a customer on the Affiliate Site. Affiliates are not authorized to collect payments or sell any AlphaNation.com products from other websites as a “reseller” and no “resale” rights are granted in ANY way. Affiliates are not authorized to sell any of these products on ebay or other auction sites Affiliates are not authorized to give away copies of any of these products. AlphaNation.com will also be solely responsible for all customer service inquires. All affiliates understand and acknowledge that no physical products will be shipped. Alpha Nation is a PDF-format e-book, only available through download.
Customers who purchase products and services through the Affiliate Program will be deemed to be customers of AlphaNation.com. Accordingly, all rules, policies, and operating procedures concerning customer orders and service will apply to those customers. We may change our policies and operating procedures at any time. Prices and availability of our products and services may vary from time to time. AlphaNation.com policies will always determine the price paid by the customer.
