Questions we frequently get

What is an affiliate program and how does it work?

An affiliate program is a revenue sharing program where the affiliate (that's you) drives traffic to a merchant's web site (that's the DesignContest website) in exchange for referral commissions.

With DesignContest, you earn about $50 from referrals.

When visitors click on an affiliate link on your website, they are directed to our website. Once they make a purchase, you will receive a commission on every contest they start.

What is the affiliate link?

An affiliate link is a special URL which directs visitors to a website. Each affiliate receives trackable URLs that record the referred clients to the DesignContest website. The URLs can also be used for banners, text links, reviews and other promotional material.

How do I become an affiliate?

Simply sign up here.

You can promote DesignContest through your website or other external sources. For example, you can post affiliate links on other search engines, internet forums, Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn, recording videos. Alternatively, you can simply email your friends the affiliate link to our website.

You will get paid when any of the visitors that you refer start a contest or hire a designer.

How do I know I will be paid for my referrals?

The affiliate program is run by an efficient tracking software. When a visitor follows your affiliate link to our website, our affiliate system registers this referral and places a cookie on his or her computer. When the visitor pays for the product, our affiliate system checks for the cookie (and, if not found, checks the IP address of the referral) and credits your account the appropriate commission.

You don't need to be a webmaster to start earning as a DesignContest affiliate.

All you need to do is share a link — it’s free and easy!
