Affiliate Scheme: Pre-Sale Questions

What is the La Jewellery affiliate programme?

See also the La Jewellery affiliate homepage

Affiliate Programme Overview

Our affiliate program potentially rewards you for directing customers to the La Jewellery website either through your own website, your social media account(s) such as Facebook, Twitter or Pinterest or an email newsletter or emailing list.

On becoming an La Jewellery affiliate you receive instructions on how to refer potential customers through us to a special kind of link we provide. We track their journey through our website and if they subsequently buy from us we pay you a percentage commission (typically 10%) on the value of the sale.

Hence our affiliate programme allows you to make money by referring customers to our website. For the most part you do this by placing links, banners, reviews, features or by blogging content you write or we provide..

You can track and monitor the traffic in each case by logging into your own dedicated affiliate area. Then at the end of the calendar month following you will receive your commission payments via the payment option you select.

The La Jewellery affiliate scheme comes with full detailed instructions on how to implement it, excellent technical support, free content for your website, hand-holding to ensure you are successful and a great revenue-earning potential — and it only takes a few minutes to sign up.

When and how do La Jewellery affiliates get paid?

See also the La Jewellery affiliate homepage

Payments How and When…

Commission payments are normally made at the month end of the month following the sale – so for example any sale made any time in May would be paid out at the end of June – the delay is to protect us from cancelled sales, returned goods and potential commission fraud.

Commission payments can be made in cash, goods or vouchers. We have a minimum commission payment of £10. If the payment due is less than £10 you can roll it over into your next month’s commission or take it as a gift voucher.

Cash payments can be made by Bank Transfer or Paypal.

How much am I likely to earn by becoming an La Jewellery affiliate?

See also the La Jewellery affiliate homepage

Earnings and Payments

How much you earn is entirely dependent on how many sales your referrals generate.

Every person you send us is a “referral” and is tracked by our servers. If that customer subsequently makes and completes a purchase we record the sale to your affiliate account. Each sale typically generates 10% of the purchase price (excluding delivery costs) to the referring website.

So if you wrote an article about us or one of our products which resulted in 10 sales with a gross sale value of £437 we would pay you £43.70 in commission at the end of the accounting period.

Small sites may result in much smaller payments than this but sites with content relevant to what we sell — or the issues on which we are active — can generate substantially more. Our Affiliate Assistance team can assist you by providing images, content and advice to greatly assist your sales. See the Affiliate Assistance question on our Support Portal for more information.

Becoming an affiliate without a website

It’s not necessary to have a website to become a La Jewellery affiliate but you need to be active online.

The La Jewellery affiliate scheme will track customers you refer and any purchases they make no matter how you refer them. In each case you need to sign up for the La Jewellery affiliate programme first so we can create the special links to make referrals. Once your links have been created:

  • you can post on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Pinterest and any other Social Media Channel using links you create to refer to a specific product or to the La Jewellery site in general;
  • you can use your links in email and newsletters – particularly good if you produce a regular newsletter or large mailing list;
  • our Press and Media Support team can help you with photographs and ideas if you are writing an article for an online publication or as a guest blogger;
  • you can post and link to us in forums and anywhere else where you can create content with links;

Multiple websites and outlets

 If you run multiple websites, apps, a range of newsletters or multiple social media accounts you can aggregate payments to a single affiliate account or if you want better tracking you can have a different account for each one.

Most publishers find it easiest to have a single account but other options are easy to set up. Send a new support ticket to the Affiliate Assitance team and they will help you create the affiliate structure you need.

Setup and operation: Using the Affiliate Area

See also the La Jewellery affiliate homepage

Operating as an Affiliate

The Affiliate Area contains all the tools you need to run, manage and monitor your affiliate activity. You access the affiliate area through the Affiliate Login/Signup link in the bottom left footer of every page. (If you are not signed up you will need to do so).

Once signed in, the Affiliate Area opens with the Referral URL Generator (labelled Affiliate URLs and the first item in the menu)

Affiliate Area Overview

Affiliate URLs tab

Clicking the first tab labelled Affiliate URLs loads the Referral URL Generator page.

This shows your base referral link (to link to the La Jewellery homepage) to claim revenue for referrals – usually something like
http://www.lajewellery.co.uk/?ref=273 (where 273 is your number in the La Jewellery affiliate scheme and which forms the basis of all referrals),

If you simply wanted to refer a user to La Jewellery generally this link would work fine – and would track wherever they went in the La Jewellery website thereafter recording any purchases they made in your affiliate account

But it also enables you to easily create a text link to any specific page or product in the website – so called “deep linking”. This is particularly useful if you are writing an article, bogging about or promoting a specific product. It enables you to link directly to the product page with your affiliate link and hopefully the customer you referred will buy it.

Creating a text “Deep Link”

1. Locate the product or page you want to link to on the La Jewellery website. Copy the URL (page address) from the browser: something like http://www.lajewellery.co.uk/product/rb15-brass-hare-ring/

2. Go to the bottom of the page and right click the Affiliate Login/Signup link

3. Select the Affiliate URLs tab (if not already selected) and paste the page address you want to link to in the Page URL box. 7

4. Optionally give the campaign an name and click the bar marked GENERATE URL.

5. The link produced contains all the code you need to deep link to the specific page and also track subsequent purchases. You can copy the link and use it anywhere – in your article or blog, in and email or newsletter or on social media such as Facebook or Twitter. In each case anyone following the link and making a purchase will have the item they purchase recorded as a referral in your affiliate account and you will receive a commission on the sale.

The other tab you will use most to generate revenue is Creatives

Creatives tab

The Creatives tab contains pre-made advertisements in commonly used sizes for web advertising. Creatives include both the artwork and the text link to the referral page (usually a collection or a special offer).  To use the creative choose the image and size you want and then copy the link code – pasting it as text into where you want it to appear – usually a website or newsletter.

Other tabs: Statistics, Graphs, Referrals, Visits

These primarily provide information on referrals you have made and are informational rather than including any settings. You can use them to check how any of your referrals are going, including how many people have used your links to click through and what purchases have resulted along with upcoming revenue and future payment.

How should I use the affiliate banners and links?

See also the La Jewellery affiliate homepage

Affiliate Banners and Links

Banners can be used anywhere but they are most effective in highly visible areas — your website’s home page, navigation bar, and any other high-traffic areas. Banners are really advertising for which you receive a reward if a customer makes a purchase.

Links drive more traffic than banners because they are usually accompanied by editorial and an image which attracts a purchaser to a specific product so the conversion rate is much higher too.

You can use links anywhere — to support and monetize articles or blogposts you have written, as posts in social media or in emails or newsletters

You can generate your own copy or we are happy to provide you with articles, photography, reviews, blog posts, and many other marketing tools to make converting your visitors into sales as easy for you as possible.

Affiliate Scheme: Technical Questions

For how long do I earn commissions after the original referral?

See also the La Jewellery affiliate homepage

Referral Durations

 If you make a referral to us our settings are due to endure for that customer for 1500 days. So in theory at least if you refer a customer today all purchases made today and for 1500 days after will generate an affiliate fee for you unless they are subsequently referred by someone else also on the La Jewellery affiliate programme.

In practice people change computers, use different devices, logins etc etc so there is no guarantee that every sale for the next 1500 days will result in an affiliate payment being added to your account.

The best way to ensure you maximise the number and duration of referrals is to continue to generate content — whether blogs, articles, social media posts or newsletter items — so people old and new keep buying as a result of following your links.
