Affiliate Portal Template

Just a few weeks ago, we announced that we’re planning the launch of the LeadPages marketplace within the next month or so and today is an exciting day. We’re making the first template from our LeadPages marketplace available for sale. We don’t yet have a main homepage for the marketplace so we’re releasing these templates one at a time on our blog. At first, we’ll be releasing these templates maybe one per week on our blog until the marketplace home page and ecosystem is ready. Going into the future, we have a wonderful cast of template designers who will be designing templates for the marketplace. The response was overwhelming to say the least. If you’re a designer interested in submitting templates to our marketplace, there’s a link below where you can sign up to be on our notification list to be notified when you’ll be able to sell your designs in the LeadPages marketplace. The first template that we’re selling is a LeadPages design template we’re making available for $15. It’s an affiliate portal mini site template.

Before we go any further though I do need to point out that ask per usual, we’ll continue to steadily release templates to all LeadPages customers at no additional charge. However this affiliate portal mini site template that we’re selling today is one of the few templates that we’re making that will be available in the marketplace for a fee. Also, this is a beta version of the marketplace and we’ve done extensive testing on our end to make sure things work correctly and we’ll be cleaning things up and perfecting things further as time goes on so we just ask for your patience and kindness. If you have any problems, please contact our support team and we’ll be happy to help.

Before we get into this affiliate mini site and why you should use it let’s talk just in general about why you should utilize an affiliate program in your business. There are several reasons. Number one, you’re just starting out and you don’t have time to generate, earn social media or SEO traffic and you can’t afford paid media then affiliates are a great low risk way to get fast traffic. Number two it’s the best converting traffic you can get since it’s endorsed by someone that has a close relationship with an existing audience. You can leverage that relationship to increase conversions. Number three affiliates allow you to increase the promotion of your product or service without you having to do it all yourself. And number four, affiliates are paid on performance so you only pay them when a conversion happens. This creates a win-win situation for you and your affiliates.

Affiliates were instrumental in the fast paced growth of LeadPages and this strategy has worked incredibly well for our company not to mention countless other businesses. Now that we’ve covered why affiliates are important, let’s quickly talk about what an affiliate portal is. This page is responsible for recruiting affiliates to promote whatever offer you have. Having affiliates promote you is a great way to skyrocket profits but just like the people buying your products or services affiliates essentially need to be sold on why they should promote your company. This template allows you to create a homebase for your affiliates where they can get everything they need to (a) make an informed decision to join your company’s affiliate program, and (b) be a productive affiliate for your company.

First let’s look at how this page takes the potential affiliates through what we’ll call a done-for-you affiliate portal. Right at the top, you have five sections that answer the basics any affiliates can ask about why and how they should promote your company. The page is designed to visually move people down the page. Each link directs into a section further down the page until ultimately they get to the getting started button. At the very top, just like many sales and opt-in pages there’s a headline and a video to get potential affiliates a quick glimpse into why they should be your affiliate. In this video, we recommend you show your face so people can get to know you and maybe demo your product in the video and give some insight into why people love it, talk about your promotional calendar so the dates are clear but most importantly, talk about what’s in it for someone promoting your company, what will they get out of the deal.

Finally the video is followed by the button to apply now and this in itself is powerful because there’s a definite call to action. It encourages a decision one way or another. Do you want to become an affiliate or not? Next we go to the why section where you tell people what they get out of the deal like commissions, commissions per click, bonuses and so on. Next, we have the how to promote section which basically takes away the headache of the affiliates having to figure out the best ways to promote your company. We found that in our business that the more done for you things are, the better results you will achieve. So we’ve laid out all the best ways to promote our company here. Then we have the breakdown of our product and what commissions would be on each followed by a huge done-for-you section that has all of the banner ads, social media swipe copy and email swipe copy that you can just copy and paste into any place that you can paste HTML, email copy and so on.

For example if I copy and paste this embed code for this ad, the ad will appear on my website wherever I paste this code or if this section here is for swipe email copy, so you can give people copy to email their list to promote your product as an affiliate. So if I copy it and head to get response as an example, I’d create an email that I want to send to my list. I’d paste what I just copied from the affiliate portal in here and now I can send this out to my list and I’ve got well written email copies specific to the offer I’m promoting all without having to do anything other than copy and paste.

Now down here, there’s even a done-for-you social media post so I can copy this post for Facebook, go to my Facebook account, paste the code I just got from the affiliate portal into my Facebook account, add my affiliate link at the end and now when I post it, I’ll be promoting LeadPages as an affiliate. This is so huge because a lot of people aren’t graphic designers or copy writers so creating all this content for them not only ensures that they make money with good copy and design but that your copy ultimately makes money too.

Now the final section has the info for your affiliate manager and the call to action to apply for the affiliate program. Again, encouraging them to make a decision, do they want to apply or don’t they. So these sections reflect a done-for-you affiliate portal. Providing pertinent information to affiliates promoting your business and making it easy for those affiliates to promote you is essential for your affiliates and your business to make money. This page takes care of it all. You can purchase the full version of this affiliate portal mini site from the LeadPages marketplace or you can download the PSD of this page below. If you’re a LeadPages marketplace early adopter, this template is free for you. When you go to check out, the template will appear as free. If you’re a LeadPages customer this template costs $15. If you’re not a LeadPages customer, this template also costs $15 but it comes with a free 30-day trial of LeadPages so that you can easily customize and deploy this page to your site.

I need to point out here that an active LeadPages subscription is necessary for continued access and use of this premium template. That’s why we’re giving you 30 days to test out LeadPages for free. To purchase this page from the LeadPages marketplace, simply click the button below this video and you’ll be taken to the template page. Click on the purchase button and if you have a LeadPages account, you’ll use your login information to log in and purchase the template. If you do not have a LeadPages account you’ll be asked for your information to purchase. When you’re not a LeadPages customer, when you purchase the template it also comes with a free 30-day trial of LeadPages. After the free 30 days, you’ll be charged $37 per month for your LeadPages standard monthly subscription. If you’re an early adopter, a LeadPages pro or a LeadPages standard customer or a new user of the marketplace, once you purchase the template you’ll immediately be routed to the template editor to start customizing your template. If you’re not ready to customize the page right now, you can always access the page later by viewing the templates and then selecting the premium section here on the left.

Let’s just in and customize this page. Like all templates inside of LeadPages, you just click on an element to edit it. For example, I’ll click the video box to insert my embed code. I’m going to change the logo out for a different one. Under the style settings, I want to update a couple of the color to something different. Just move the color selector to whatever color you’d like it to be and it will update. Here I’ll update my commissions to 40%. Now one cool thing about this template is all of the bullet sections are dynamic. So when you add or subtract bullet points to the sections, the template adjust accordingly. With the commissions, whatever is added in bold will be in the yellow part here and whatever text is underlined will be blue and whatever text is just plain will be the regular text that you see here.

I can add additional checkmarks by adding a bullet and the template will adjust. If I want to subtract one or two, the template also adjusts for that. In this section, if you need to add more numbers, just simply add a bullet and the numbers adjust accordingly. It’s a really easy to use template and if you decide you don’t want to use this section, you can simply hide it. I’ll hide this inside the product section and the page adjusts accordingly.

I’m going to now say that I’m satisfied with my customizations. I’ll name the page then I’ll save the page. Once I save the page and hit publish, the page is now live on the internet and LeadPages gives me a URL that I can use to immediately view the page. So we’ll go there and checkout the page. Here’s the page that we just created. It’s looking great and the page is mobile responsive so it will look fantastic on any size screen. Back in the publishing window, we have a few more options. You can publish the page to WordPress, publish the page to Facebook as a Facebook tab or find that you can download the file and put it on your own server.

If you haven’t purchased this template in the LeadPages marketplace, it’s quite a bit more difficult to customize and publish. Here’s what you’ll need to do if you haven’t purchased this template from the LeadPages marketplace. You’ll need the download the PSD file below, hire a copywriter to create the copy on the page which there’s quite a bit of, hire a coder to customize the page, add in the copy, update the images, slice up the page, make an HTML file, a CSS file and also a JavaScript file. Finally, you’ll need to work with a developer to upload it and publish the page to your website. So these are all the steps that you’ll need to take if you don’t purchase this page from the LeadPages marketplace.

If you don’t own this template and you’d like to have an affiliate portal for your business, we recommend you get it now. It’s a huge way to get new traffic and explode your revenue. Just click the button below this video then click here on this purchase button to purchase this template now.

I’m Jeff Wenberg and I look forward to seeing what you do with this template and hearing about the rising success of your business due to your new affiliate portal.

    Anyone else agree?

            Thanks for the help Jeff, and thanks to LeadPages for being awesome!

      Hahaha! Love to hear that Elizabeth. Would love to see the finished product when you’re done!

  • http://stefansandin.com StefanSandin

    Looking really great :-)

    • Jeff Wenberg

      Thanks Stefan! Are you utilizing an affiliate program at all?

  • http://ShutterMuse.com DanCarr

    The part of the system that checks whether you are an early adopter or not it not calibrated correctly. I just got charged $15 even though I AM an early adopter. I suspect it is because for whatever reason, the payment date/time in my account settings is listed as one day AFTER I actually signed up. I know when I actually signed up since I have the welcome e-mail from you guys, clearly dated the 28th before midnight. So now I have been charged $15 for the template and have to go through the process of getting this refunded which is frustrating.

    I’m posting this as a warning to others in my situation since it was very easy to simply press the purchase button, expecting to be redirected to the early adopter page, but instead having accidentally purchased it and been charged for it.

    • http://www.marketingshow.com Clay Collins

      Hi Dan… please contact support if you believe you are an early adopter and had an Annual-Pro plan prior to March 28th 2014 at midnight. They can be reached at http://support.LeadPages.net

      • http://ShutterMuse.com DanCarr

        Thanks Kat (and now Clay), I have done that of course. I was just posting this to
        maybe make sure other people don’t have the same issue. I figured
        there’s no way I would get charged the $15 as an early adopter…. but
        it takes so few clicks to make the purchase if you are already logged in
        that before I knew what was happening I had purchased it and been
        charged for it. I just wasn’t expecting it so I wasn’t paying too much
        attention. With hindsight maybe I could have realized that the system
        was not for some reason recognizing me as an early adopter and saved
        some time having to get this refunded.

    • http://www.brucecat.com/ Bruce Cat

      I’m in the same situation as you Dan.

      • Jeff Wenberg

        Bruce, please contact our support team and they’ll get this straightened out for you. You can reach them at http://support.leadpages.net.

        • http://www.brucecat.com/ Bruce Cat

          I just did.

          • http://www.brucecat.com/ Bruce Cat

            Ok, I just tried again. Everything is sorted. Thank you Clay and the team.

    • http://www.marketingshow.com Clay Collins

      Hi Dan! In order to get this at no charge as an early adopter you needed to have purchased a **Pro Annual** subscription to LeadPages prior to March 28th 2014 at midnight (and still maintain this pro annual account). Simply having a pro account doesn’t make someone an early adopter. If you feel you should get this as an early adopter please contact support at http://support.LeadPages.net and they’ll get it taken care of.

  • Frank

    I want to affiliate market Leadpages. I would cutomize this template to do this as opposed to setting up my own Leadpage and Leadbox with affiliate links. Is that my understanding.

    • http://www.marketingshow.com Clay Collins

      This is a template for promoting your affiliate program for your products and services. There are lots of other templates in LeadPages you might want to use if you want to promote LeadPages an affiliate. This, in essence, is a sales page that sells YOUR affiliate program (not your product).

  • Bill

    I love this concept – does it come with the back-end affiliate manager?
    Your affiliate portal back-end manager is brilliant and I would love to be able to manage affiliates like this.

    • Jeff Wenberg

      Bill at this time when you purchase you get the template only, but the page can be utilized with any back-end manager.

      • Bill

        Thanks Jeff I understand. I am on the lookout for a back-end manager and wondered if you could suggest or point me in the right direction here. I want one like Leadpages has. Is this available?

        • Jeff Wenberg

          Bill could you clarify what you’re looking for? Are you looking for an actual person to be your affiliate manager, or a piece of software? I need a little clarification to help. Thanks.

          • Thad

            What would be the best piece of software to run with this template? Ive been strugging to find the best, easy to use, (fairly cheap), affiliate software, if you have any recommendation do tell?

          • Jeff Wenberg

            Thad, several recommendations from the LeadPages team. Here they are in no particular order: HasOffers, ONTRAPORT, Infusionsoft, and iDevAffiliate. Hope that helps!

  • http://www.davidadlard.com David Adlard

    Does the affiliate site generate the affiliate number as well?

    • Jeff Wenberg

      David, great question. No it does not, this is just the template. To generate your affiliate information, you’d need a back end affiliate manager to use in conjunction with this page.

  • Dina Burke

    Clay you really know how to get inside the mind of someone like me who feels a vision unrealized but needs a way to catch it in a glass jar.

    • Jeff Wenberg

      Dina, Clay is a crazy smart guy isn’t he? Thanks for checking this out!

  • Joann Woolley

    One of the many reasons it has taken me so long to push forward with my membership site is that I knew I would need affiliates to get the ball rolling but had no clue “how” to create such a program. Making me want to finish my product!

    • Jeff Wenberg

      That’s awesome, I hope you get it done. Share a url when you do! :)

  • gerardod

    Hi,
    Template no use without a recommendation for a affiliate software program to generate the links. Any recommendation coming out of Leadpages?
    Thanks,
    Gerard

    • Jeff Wenberg

      Hi Gerardod, I asked for several recommendations from the LeadPages team. Here they are in no particular order: HasOffers, ONTRAPORT, Infusionsoft, and iDevAffiliate. Hope that helps!

  • http://www.petermoriarty.com/ Peter Moriarty

    Looks GREAT guys, excited for the full launch!

    • Jeff Wenberg

      Thanks Peter!

  • Dan

    So we pay a monthly fee so we can pay for templates? No thank you

    • Kat Von Rohr

      Thanks for checking out this template anyway Dan. Appreciate the feedback.

  • http://www.katiedavis.com/ Katie Davis

    As an affiliate program newbie I’ve been using a very clunky system through e-junkie and now that things are really starting to roll along, am looking into changing it up to amember. This looks like it would work great with that (yes?) – and yup, I’m a very happy LeadPages customer who regrets missing the Marketplace deadline! 8-( But I’ll buy this! One suggestion: you guys should have a Buy New LeadPages Marketplace button inside, right next to the Create New LeadPages button!

    • Kat Von Rohr

      Fantastic, glad to hear you’re loving LeadPages Katie! For this template, yes you should be able to use it with any affiliate software. Thanks for the suggestion about the button — we’ll keep that in mind. :)

  • chaz

    How do I get someone at LeadPages to respond? My LeadPages has been non-functional for over 24 hours now, and 2 support tickets opened with no reply. Right in the middle of a launch, this is quite frustrating, and I have no way to reach anyone direct. 3rd time my LeadPages has gone down since January now. Not a good sign… Sorry for posting this here – But at this point I am unsure how to get someone to respond.

    • Kat Von Rohr

      Our support team is on top of this and will be responding as soon as possible (if they haven’t already). In the meantime, you may want to check your spam folder to make sure that their response hasn’t ended up in there. Thanks so much.

  • Uri Lederman

    I have a grandfather account and it looks like I will LOSE it’s functionality if I update my billing preferences..

    It seems that this is a MUST if I want to buy these templates??? bug??

    • Kat Von Rohr

      Hi Uri, Please contact our support team and they’ll get this straightened out for you. You can reach them at http://support.leadpages.net. Thanks so much.

  • gerardod

    Thanks for that Jeff.

    Anybody come across use http://www.leaddyno.com/?

    Thanks,
    Gerard

  • Nick Ritchie

    once the affiliates clicks the “sign up” button, what’s the next step? do you have to have a clickbank or jvzoo account etc setup to direct them to or what? I was hoping leadpages would have a simple ‘copy paste url’ in the dynamic settings to easily bypass this…

    • Jeff Wenberg

      Nick, yes you would need some sort of affiliate software to manage your affiliates. This is the template only.

  • Nick Ritchie

    do you guys have a LEADPAGES Blog template that we can integrate direct into wordpress, like any other blog template? If so, I’M IN!

    • Jeff Wenberg

      Right now we do not Nick, thanks for checking though. We’ll keep it in mind for the future.

  • http://www.osiaffiliate.com/ Tariehk @ osiaffiliate

      Tariehk, thanks a ton for sharing those links. That looks great.

  • Erin Brule

    Great template – but I can’t seem to change ‘slot 4 headline’ – keeps directing to ‘slot 3 headline’ – is this a known bug with a fix?

    • http://MarketersCruise.com/ Capt Lou – MarketersCruise.com

      I’m having a similar issue trying to get my uploaded “banner swipe images” to show…no luck. Plus the “social media swipes” ICONS disappear as soon as you try to edit the text. Slot 4 headline repeats the Slot 3 headline for me too, but I just changed the text to work in both spots. I submitted a support ticket and waiting for reply.

      • Jeff Wenberg

        Capt Lou, our support team will definitely get you taken care of. Thanks for submitting a ticket.

        • http://MarketersCruise.com/ Capt Lou – MarketersCruise.com

          Jeff, your Support Rep Will M. and your dev team were awesome in ironing out the glitches so that this amazing template is battle tested and ready for prime time! :-) Thanks!

          • Jeff Wenberg

            Capt Lou! That’s great to hear. Thanks for sharing!

    • Jeff Wenberg

      Erin please contact our awesome support team at support.leadpages.net and they’ll get this figured out for you. Thanks!

  • Maggie Percy

    This is terrific! We aren’t ready to use it yet, but I’m really thrilled to have it. Love having the benefits of being an early adopter, too. It went through perfectly for me, and no charge.

    • Jeff Wenberg

      Maggie, glad to hear it! We’re happy to have you too! Definitely let us know when you utilize the template!

  • Ian Ralphs

    Nice template – shame that the menu doesn’t stay within view though once a link has been clicked. Would also have been great to have the option to add additional images (e.g. launch calendar)

    But I’m sure it will be popular!
