What is an Affiliate?
The Affiliate Program functions like a referral program.
A Good Dog Academy (GDA) Affiliate is anyone who agrees to share a link that leads to the GDA website. The Affiliate ultimately takes a percentage of the sale made from anyone who clicks on that Share Link and completes a program purchase. An Affiliate can also be any retail or wholesale business, industry professional, continuing education department of any school district, shelter, rescue or fundraising organization.
As the Affiliate, you or your group will present a unique Share Link to your audience through your website, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc. You can also work with an Influencer if you choose. This Share Link can also be offered directly to colleagues, clients, vet offices and retail shops, shelters, dog care facilities, municipalities, groomers, dog walkers or anyone who needs formal education and registers for our Professional Pet Dog Trainer Certificate or Business for Professional Pet Dog Trainers program.
If you, as an Affiliate would like to visit sites in your area to make direct connections, we have promotional material available for you to distribute as well as agreement forms for you to present to prospective clients. You could leave rack cards at your local pet stores, vet offices, etc. These rack cards would have a code that represents you so you will be credited with any resulting sales.
The Affiliate will earn a percentage of each sale made from anyone who clicks on that Share Link and completes a purchase within 30 days. The purchaser must use the same browser as the one they used to access your Share Link.
If there is more than one individual or group prospecting in the same target market, the commission will be paid to the person or group with the Share Link that is used for the purchase.
Affiliates must declare to GDA if they are GST/HST registered. If they are, they are required to provide their GST/HST number to Good Dog Academy for tax compliance reasons.
How does the Affiliate Program work?
Good Dog Academy will create a unique Share Link for you or your organization. The Share Link will place a cookie on your prospective customer's browser for 30 days. As long as the customer purchases from Good Dog Academy’s website using the same browser and the purchase is made within that 30 day time period, the transaction will be counted as an Affiliate transaction.
