Get 20% Commission

By becoming an affiliate, you can get 20% of all our tutorial sales that originate via your website.  This is only available to reputable organisations that are associated with either SEO or IT training.  For instance, local business associations, accountants, bookkeepers, business advises or similar.

This is extremely easy for you to setup.  To start the process, please read the terms and conditions below, and then fill-in the application form.  We reserve the right  to reject any application without necessarily giving a reason.

Cheltenham Group – Affiliate Agreement

This agreement is designed to help protect you and Cheltenham Group from fraudulent activity.

Affiliate Registration

We review and moderate all affiliate registrations, and we appreciate your accurate and honest information. Please note that the review process may take a few days – we know you are eager to join our team of affiliates, and we appreciate your patience!

  • If you’re approved, you’ll be given a unique referral ID that you can use to promote Cheltenham Group via referral links.
  • Check out your private Affiliate Area for visits and referrals information, creatives, graphs and more!

Commissions and payouts

You’ll earn a 20% commission when a customer purchases a new Cheltenham Group license subscription using your referral link.

We pay out affiliate commissions in USD (United States Dollars) via PayPal in the first week of every month. As we have a 30-day money back guarantee, we only pay commissions that are older than 30 days. The minimum payout balance is $50.00, so you receive a decent chunk of cash when payouts are made. And there’s no maximum payout balance.

We do not allow referrals to be generated on your own purchases and we do not offer recurring referrals.

Here are the details of our program in summary:

  • You’ll receive 20% commission for every new sale you refer
  • Minimum payout balance of $50.00, and no maximum payout (we pay in USD)
  • Commissions older than 30 days will be paid within the first week of each month
  • Referrals are paid out via PayPal
  • Referrals cannot be generated on your own purchases (this includes using a different email address).

Referral cookie lifetime

When a potential customer clicks on your referral link, a cookie is stored in their browser to track your referral. The cookie is then stored for 30 days to give your referred customers time to decide if they wish to purchase a subscription from Cheltenham Group, or ask us any pre-sale questions they may have.

A referral won’t be awarded if:

  • The customer uses a different browser to purchase than the one they originally used to visit our site (because the cookie does not exist in that browser)
  • The customer purchases after 30 days (because the cookie will expire)
  • The customer has disabled cooking within their web browser.

Direct Link Tracking

We use Direct Link Tracking, so you can skip the referral link (e.g. ?ref=123 or /ref/123) when you link to our site from your https:// website. You can submit a direct link to your own website in the Settings tab of your Affiliate Area. We’ll review your direct link submission, and when it’s approved, you’ll no longer need to use a referral link when linking to directly from your site!

Note: Direct Link Tracking is only available if your site has an SSL certificate using the https:// protocol. We will only approve websites that are 100% owned by you and have an SSL certificate

Refunded purchases

Referrals older than 30 days and in good standing (i.e. the purchase has not been refunded) will be included with each commission payout (if the commission balance totals $50.00 or over). If a purchase is refunded, a commission won’t be paid out for that referral.

We reserve the right to reject affiliate commissions for any reason.

Commission rejections may occur for the following reasons:

  • The sale that the referral was based on was refunded
  • The method by which the referral was generated was in violation of our promotional policies (see below) or violated the spirit of the Affiliate Agreement.

Affiliate news and updates

By becoming an affiliate, you agree to receive emails from Cheltenham Group. These emails will be sent to affiliates only, on an ad-hoc basis, and may include important information regarding the Cheltenham Group affiliate program. These emails will also provide you with relevant news and updates to help you effectively promote Cheltenham Group. As an affiliate you may be privy to embargoed or time-sensitive information in these emails (this information may only be promoted after an embargo is lifted). And we won’t spam you, ever!

Affiliate application rejection

We reserve the right to reject affiliate applications for any reason. We also reserve the right to choose whether we provide an explanation or reasoning for affiliate application rejection. Below are just a few reasons why an application may be rejected (this is not an exhaustive list):

  • Affiliate applications for websites that sell, advertise or engage in pornography, phishing scams, spamming, illegal business practices, or that include any material infringing on National or International Copyright will be rejected.
  • Affiliate applications for websites that we do not believe are aligned with our industry or business may be rejected.
  • Websites considered inappropriate by Cheltenham Group will be rejected.

Inappropriate websites:

The following types of sites are not permitted to become an affiliate:

  • adult sites
  • sites that display adult material or banners
  • sites that promote violence, hatred or bigotry
  • sites that promote or engage in illegal activity, including (but not limited to), hacking, cracking, nulled, and warez sites.

Affiliate applications for inappropriate websites will be rejected, and we reserve the right to choose whether or not to provide a rejection reason.

Inappropriate claims about SEO (Search Engine Optimization)

You are prohibited from making claims about the use of the SEO training materials provided by the Cheltenham Group.  You may not make any of the following, or similar claims.

  • First page Google ranking guaranteed
  • Top of Google search results guaranteed
  • Guaranteed to improve your Google ranking

Questions regarding your application

When you apply to become an affiliate, we may email you at the email address you have supplied with some questions regarding your application. This may be because:

  • We didn’t understand something in your application, or,
  • We’d like to learn a bit more about how you will promote Cheltenham Group and need a little more detail.

If we reach out to you and we haven’t heard back within 7 days, your application may be rejected. If your initial application is rejected, you are welcome to reapply to become an affiliate and provide us with more detail for reconsideration.

Dormant affiliate accounts

We encourage all our affiliates to actively promote Cheltenham Group to keep earning referrals. An affiliate account is considered dormant if no visits have been generated after a 6-month period. A dormant affiliate account will be temporarily deactivated if no visits have been generated after 6 months.

Cheltenham Group Affiliate Program Policies

Allowed promotional methods

How you promote Cheltenham Group is reflected in the commission you earn! We encourage the use of promotional methods that add value to Cheltenham Group and bring us legitimate, loyal customers.

Here are a few examples of acceptable promotional methods to earn more commission:

  • Tell clients, customers or friends about Cheltenham Group, and give them your affiliate referral link
  • Write a review or a blog post about Cheltenham Group and link to our site with your referral link
  • Reach out to a broad audience with your social network accounts. Tweet about us on Twitter with your affiliate referral link, post about us on Facebook with your affiliate link, or communicate to your Linkedin followers about Cheltenham Group with your affiliate link. Spam-free promotion is a great way to get more referrals!
  • Provide value to others by answering related questions on other sites with helpful responses and using your referral link in your replies.

Prohibited promotional methods

We back our product 100%, and we are very careful with how it’s promoted, so we want affiliates who are 100% behind us too! The prohibited promotional methods listed below aren’t meant to scare you off – they’re here to protect you, and us, and our customers from any fraudulent activity, which is something we take seriously. We know you’ll understand.

But here they are in writing just in case you’re not totally sure what is and what isn’t allowed.

  • Cheltenham Group may not be promoted on coupon sites: Customers who are searching for a coupon are already in the market for Cheltenham Group, so this method adds no value to Cheltenham Group.
  • Paid advertising using your affiliate link is prohibited: Buying ads through services like Google AdWords, social ads, or retargeting ads and using our brand keywords and your affiliate link will result in affiliate account deactivation.
  • Any type of spam is prohibited: Links, ads, emails, comments or any type of spam. Please respect the posting rules of any 3rd-party websites you use to promote Cheltenham Group. This is not an exhaustive list of spam methods; if we decide that your activity is spam, it’s spam.
  • Any illegal activity or activity deemed offensive by us is prohibited: This may result in referrals being rejected and/or your affiliate account being deactivated. See above for allowed promotional methods!
  • You may not pretend to be professionally associated with Cheltenham Group: Affiliates aren’t employees of Cheltenham Group and have no employee rights.
  • Pretending to be Cheltenham Group is prohibited: Cloning our site, copying our site, using our copyrighted site assets, and pretending that a site created by you is an official Cheltenham Group site is unethical and prohibited (this includes using services that automatically clone websites, or place them into iframes).
  • False promotion to customers that you are endorsed or operated by Cheltenham Group is prohibited.

If you’re unsure or concerned that some activity you’re about to proceed with may be considered prohibited, please ask us.

Consequences of inappropriate promotional methods

  • If your promotional methods step outside of these terms, your referrals may be rejected, and we may disable your affiliate account.
  • We reserve the right to do this and may or may not notify you in the instance that this occurs.
  • Please use allowed promotional methods and help us to help you succeed as an affiliate!

Inappropriate websites

The following types of sites are not permitted to become an affiliate:

  • adult sites, sites that display adult material or banners
  • sites that promote violence, hatred or bigotry
  • sites that promote or engage in illegal activity, including (but not limited to), hacking and spamming.

Affiliate applications for inappropriate websites will be rejected, and we reserve the right to choose whether or not to provide a rejection reason.

And finally,

  • By accepting these terms and conditions you are providing your nonlegal agreement to abide by them.
  • By registering and being approved as an affiliate in our affiliate program you agree that your commissions are subject to approval before they are accepted and subsequently paid.
