But is anything really for free? You will have to spend time learning whatever you can about progesterone therapy and related health matters.
Why? Because if you don't you'll be wasting your own time as a key element to the success of being an Associate is to know your subject. This doesn't mean chasing a degree in endocrinology before joining the program, but it does mean that the better informed you are the more confidence, and therefor success, you will have.
That's the true "cost" of joining the program.
Let's use our Associate Program as an example. In a nutshell
All you need to do is provide valuable, relevant information to your visitors enabling them to make an informed judgement as to whether or not they may benefit from progesterone therapy. We look after everything else, including...
But the Associate Program goes beyond the generous commissions. It includes...
The Affiliateshop software that powers the program works by having visitors click links or banners placed on the Associate's website or email. Upon clicking on the link, the visitor is redirected to our website, where the visitor may browse or make a purchase. When the visitor initially clicks on this link, the affiliate software detects this action and stores information about which Associate referred the visitor.
After the visitor has been directed to the Natpro website and a purchase has been made, the Affiliateshop software retrieves the information stored earlier about the "initiating" Associate and then credits the Associate with the sale. The Associate is subsequently paid.
Lets look at each of these more closely...
Nothing simpler... just click on the link below (a new window will open) and follow the quick, easy signup process...
...then click the "Submit" button. The fields marked with a red asterisk are required. The others are optional.
Please note: One of these fields requires you to enter the URL of your website. If you don't have your own website here are 2 easy solutions...
Both are free services enabling anyone to have their own blog ("web log") website. They require no technical knowledge and no more than a few minutes to set up. Once you have the URL to your own blog you're ready to complete the application.
Immediately after your application to join the program has been received we will send you an email. This will provide you with login details to enable access at any time to your personal account. Go there to check on...
This same email will give you your unique ID (which will look like this... AID######) that enables the software powering the Associate Program to identify clients referred by you.
This is the key to your success as an Associate.
You may be an experienced health care practitioner or a brilliant sales person or have a heart of gold or have overcome a life threatening illness... although none of these will count against you... neither will they assist you as an Associate unless you have at least a basic understanding of progesterone therapy.
"Where do I learn about progesterone therapy?" There are many sources of information both online and offline and your own efforts in seeking them out are bound to be rewarding. However, to get a quick start the best is to...
"What do I do when I receive an enquiry about how to buy Natpro?"
The first thing is to ensure that the person concerned is making an informed decision to buy. Its important to remember that your focus should not be to "sell" Natpro, rather it should be to ensure that potential buyers are well informed and that their new found knowledge of the potential benefits of progesterone therapy are based on a clear understanding of how and why they might benefit.
The next thing is to direct your client to the Natpro website or order page through your unique link. This will be either a text link or banner that you will find after logging into your account as an Associate.
What if a client doesn't have access to the web or a credit card? The answer here is to request...
Then... simply go through your own web page and enter the order on their behalf using your own credit card.
Your part is complete once you have referred someone to the Natpro website or order page. If they have been well informed by you about progesterone therapy and Natpro they will then be confident enough to order... and your earnings grow.
What happens then? We take over and do this
"Do I have to do anything more?"
Not if you don't want to... but if you want to make a success of things its important to stay in close touch with all those whom you have advised, whether or not they have ordered.
Why? Because there are always questions, doubts, misunderstandings, enthusiastic responses and... repeat orders.
Not everyone will re-order as not everyone will necessarily perceive an improvement in their health. However, staying in touch and offering valuable information, advice and guidance will go a long way towards ensuring those who can benefit will continue to do so.
All the "back end" accounting and inventory management are handled automatically so... at the month end all your orders are accounted for and you are credited accordingly.
You can track these at any time by simply logging into your account.
Something even more important...
Or, to put it another way... "How much can I earn?" Before I answer that question its important to ask another first... what is the basis or "sales model" for the program?
Lets start by saying what it isn't... its not a "networking" or "multi level marketing" model. Why? Well, there's nothing wrong with "MLMs" provided they are a good "fit" for the product being sold... such as household cleaners or vitamins. But Natpro is not floor polish. Its not an "off the shelf" commodity that everyone understands.
Why is this important?
Because it gets back to the "message" of progesterone therapy... you're not "selling a product" but "giving valuable information" about a complex and deeply personal subject - someone's health.
The emphasis must be on the "individual" you are talking to... not on "building a downline".
So what is the "sales model" for the Associate Program?
Its simply a "2 tier" commission based structure. Here are the details...
An Associate can earn commissions on 2 tiers for referred sales as follows:
This commission is payable to an Associate who has referred a new customer who has never before purchased, directly or indirectly, any product sold by Organic Products LLC. The Tier 1 commission is calculated as follows:
In the event that the same customer purchases again the same commission will be payable to the Associate. There is no limit to the number of repeat sales that attract commissions at the above rate as "cookies" are set for life (this means they do not expire after a certain number of days like most affiliate programs - once your client, always your client).
This commission is payable to an Associate who has referred a new customer who themselves subsequently become an Associate and who refers a new customer who has never before purchased, directly or indirectly, any product sold by Organic Products LLC. The Tier 2 commission is calculated as follows:
Repeat purchases are treated in the same way as for Tier 1.
Please note: Organic Products LLC reserves the right to change its selling prices at any time in which event the commission percentage will not change but the absolute $ commission amount will change accordingly.
For the sake of clarity here's an example. Lets say you sign up as a Natpro Associate and in the...
...how much commission would you earn? Here's the calculation...
Tier 1 = 22 sales (5+7+10) at $6.21 commission per sale = $136.62
Now lets say half of these buyers sign up as Associates and each refers the same number of new buyers in their first 3 months as you have done. How much commission would you earn? Here's the calculation...
Tier 2 = 242 sales (half of 22 1st tier sales = 11 Associates x 22 sales each) at $1.24 commission per sale = $300.08
Total earned over the 3 months = $436.70.
Three more questions you may be asking...
1. "What happens if I refer someone and they do order and then the next time they want to order they come to the order page through some other path... will I earn a commission?"
Yes... you will earn commissions on all repeat orders. How will this be ensured? Here's how... your "Associate ID" link sets a "cookie". What's a "cookie"? Its simply a small file that gets written into the hard disc of a visitor to the web site and it serves as an ID tag. Its not an application so there is zero danger to the integrity of the visitors' hard disc. This way the web site automatically recognizes a repeat visitor as someone who has previously ordered through you and they will then be automatically logged as your customer. This is backed up by a database driven system which logs IP addresses and does a few other quite clever things to ensure you're credited with the referred sale.
2. "What if I refer someone who subsequently orders a re-seller's 'case' and therefor attracts's the re-seller's discount... will I earn a commission?"
No... the re-seller's discount is too deep to enable an additional margin for Associates's commission.
2. "What about lost parcels?"
Payment will be made using PayPal to your PayPal account
Payments will be made within 15 days of the first of the month for the prior month's sales. For example, commissions for sales made during May will be sent out on or before the 15th of June.
Important note: The minimum amount for payment is $200. This means a minimum of 33 tubes of Natpro must be purchased before commissions can be paid. Any amount under this will be held in your account and carried forward until the minimum for pay out is reached (this is ongoing).
The benefits of joining the program are many. Some obvious, some not... you waste no time doing "dead" work... admin, filing, paper chasing, debt collecting etc. You don't have to find the capital to buy whole piles of product, store it, insure it, label it, post it, track it.
You don't even have to take the order and email it or fax it. Nor do you have to handle the payments and pass them on. All this "back office" stuff is handled by our systems.
You just focus on what matters... informing others about the potential benefits of progesterone therapy. Then point them at the order page.
Simple, focused and productive.
Its flexible too... you can place the orders yourself on behalf of those who either may not have web access or a credit card.
Think of the many ways you can reach people and tell them... first about progesterone therapy and then how to order...
The list goes on, but the point is this however you wish to use it, whoever you refer with a "confident and well informed mind set" will order and your earnings increase.
