Affiliate Program FAQ

  • What is an affiliate program? 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 Sage Goddess!) in exchange for cashback commissions. You get a commission on every item sold and (only if you’re an Advisor), an additional commission on sales from those affiliates who are registered beneath you.

  • How are my referral sales tracked?

    Each approved Affiliate must generate their own referral links from their personalized Sage Goddess Affiliate Dashboard on SageGoddess.com. You can then share and promote these personalized links, or your unique affiliate code, in social media, on your website, blog, or email newsletter. You will be paid for all qualifying sales coming through these personalized links.

    Affiliates: we maintain a 24-hour cookie, meaning that if a visitor clicks on a link from your site, you are credited with the sale as long as the visitor purchases within 24 hours of entering the code or clicking the link. Once 24 hours has passed, the specific affiliate code or URL must be re-entered in order to earn commissions.

    Advisors: you receive lifetime referral commissions of 7% on all sales from direct affiliate accounts, plus 3% on sales from Advisors underneath you.

  • Can I earn commissions from sales generated by other affiliates?

    As an Advisor you can earn commisions from direct referrals from non-members, Advisors and Affiliates, as well as indirect sales from Advisors underneath you.

    However as an Affiliate, you can only earn commisions from sales generated by customers that are not members of the Sage Goddess Affiliate Program.

  • How do I create links to Sage Goddess?

    Affiliates can generate their own referral links from the Referral URL Generator on their personalized Affiliate Dashboard on the Sage Goddess website.

    We will also be regularly updating the contents in the Vaults to include lots of resources to help you sell – resources that will differentiate Advisors from Affiliates, and lots of options so you can personalize your offerings.

  • How do I find my affiliate banners or text links?

    Affiliates can generate their own referral links from the Referral URL Generator on their personalized Affiliate Dashboard on the Sage Goddess website. They can also dowload all kinds of added value items, including banners and memes from the Vault, which can also be found on the Affiliate Dashboard.

  • When can I register?

    Affiliates can register in the Affiliate program beginning December 1, 2017. While the Affiliate program will only officially launch on January 1st, 2018, there are major benefits to signing up as an Advisor in December. December is a month for you to prepare for the magic, abundance and prosperity to come. You can take this time to register for the program, familiarize yourself with the dashboard, and (if you are an Advisor), build a network of people below you.

    No commissions will be paid for sales during the month of December, however starting January 1, once you have your network established, commision accrual will commence.

    Advisors who register by December 31, 2017, will also receive the special inaugural welcome kit, worth $30, available in December only. The Inaugural Kit will be available for free; Advisors just pay shipping.

  • Where should I start?

    Once you are an approved Affiliate or Advisor, the quickest and simplest way to generate significant affiliate commissions is by using social media like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest. Simply sharing personalized referral links (that you can easily generate via the Referral URL Generator on the Sage Goddess Affiliate Dashboard), or your unique affiliate code, are the simplest ways to maximize your sales commissions.

    Alternatively, you can visit the Vault tabs on your Affiliate Dashboard to view Sage Goddess banners and other artwork that you can share in social media or your website, blog or newsletter.

  • As an Advisor, what is the discount percentage for products I purchase at SageGoddess.com?

    No. Referral commissions are based on net sales, meaning less discounts, taxes, and shipping charges. Discounts cannot be applied to membership fees.

  • Does the Sage Goddess Affiliate program have a non-compete clause?

    Some multi-level marketing companies do have non-compete clauses, preventing their members from marketing more than one brand/product. However, Sage Goddess does not. We know our magical products are so unique that there’s nothing else out there that’ll compete with them!

  • How do I report another Affiliate/Advisor that is violating the program Terms and Conditions?

    If you encounter another Affiliate/Advisor that is making false product claims, marketing Athena or Sage Goddess  inappropriately, or violating the program Terms and Conditions in any way, please report them immediately here: magic@sagegoddess.com. We reserve the right to automatically strip any member of his/her membership should s/he be found to be in violation of our strict Terms and Conditions policies.

Please note that you can only receive commissions from memberships that YOU recruit. If an Affiliate/Advisor underneath you is already a member when you join the program, you cannot claim commissions from their membership charges.

    Affiliates will receive commissions from membership referrals that result from use of their specific affiliate code or URL within 24 hours of entering the code or clicking the link. Once 24 hours has passed, the specific affiliate code or URL must be re-entered in order to earn commissions. 

  • Can Affiliates earn commissions on sales generated by other Sage Goddess Affiliates?

    No. Affiliates cannot earn commissions from sales generated by other Sage Goddess Affiliate members.

    However, Advisors can earn ongoing commissions on sales from both direct referrals and indirect referrals from Advisors underneath them.

  • Can I create a second, fictitious account for my Sage Goddess purchases; and link it to my own affiliate account to earn commissions on my own purchases?

    No. This is in direct violation of the terms and conditions of the program. There are frequent checks in place to prevent this, and violators will be permanently terminated and suspended from the Affiliate Program.

  • Does this mean I’m a Sage Goddess Employee?

    No, Affiliates are not Sage Goddess employees.

  • What happens if I decide to give up my Holistic Healer membership?

    Lifetime Advisor commissions apply only as long as the primary Affiliate is registered in Holistic Healer. If an Affiliate below you cancels a membership, the primary Affiliate will no longer receive a commission. If an Advisor cancels his/her Holistic Healer membership, s/he will no longer receive any referral commissions,  and will be automatically downgraded to Affiliate status.

  • Is the Affiliate Program available to those outside the US?

    Yes, you are welcome to join the program if you live outside the US. Please bear in mind that there may be additional banking, shipping and logistical charges resulting from international transactions.

  • When will I receive my Holistic Healer Certificate?

    In order to be awarded your Certificate of Completion for the Holistic Healer program, you must have attended all 3 classes (Gem Wise, Sabbatical and AroMagic ), every month for the full 12 month duration of the Holistic Healer program. All classes are recorded, so if you miss a live class, you can always go back and watch in your own time later on.
