The website of the Share-a-Sale affiliate program is a bit hard to understand and the user-friendliness could be better. That why I write this review to give you some screenshots, so perhaps it will give you a lead.


Share-a-Sale Affiliate Program

Before you can do business with Share-a-Sale you have to apply. They are going to check your website to see if they want to do business with you too. It is important that you have a reasonable amount of post on your website before you apply. Reasonably is about 10-15 post, and the usual pages. About me, privacy policy and of course an affiliate disclosure.

Do your own research and take responsibility.

When you have entered your details, there will open a new screen. Do not apply directly to the first one you see. There are a lot of merchants offering the product you are looking for. Check out the companies on credibility and environmental responsibility. You can go to the websites, but you can also do a Google search. Does the company fit your moral standards? When you have done your thorough research you can click on “Join Program.”

How to describe your website?

On the next form, you have to sell yourself and your website to the merchant. Do not skip this step. Make a unique description for every merchant. Be original and show them you are interested in the company and their products. Let them feel you are emotionally involved.

    You are so right Loes. Share-a-Sale is a difficult interface. I have had challenges getting my afilliate links working effectively. Having this as a reference will be so beneficial. Thank you for providing this tutorial.
