FAQs

What is Affiliate Marketing?

Affiliate marketing is essentially pay for performance marketing where a business (VMInnovations) rewards an affiliate (You) for each referred customer. Joining our affiliate program will allow you to monetize your website(s)/blog(s). By placing advertising banners and/or product links on your site pointing to www.vminnovations.com you will earn 8-10% commission for each referred customer.

How does it work?

 

Here is a basic example: you wrote a blog post about “The Importance of Bicycle Helmets” then linked to one of our bicycle helmets you talked about in the post.  If your reader clicks on that link and purchases the product we will pay you up to 10% commission for each sale. Alternatively you can simply display one of our banners on your home page, or post a YouTube video product review and if it refers a customer we will pay you commission for each sale up to 90 days later (up to $80 per each referred customer).

We have teamed up with ShareASale to offer our affiliates with trusted third-party tracking, real-time reporting, and monthly commission checks.
