Social Media Marketing World Affiliate Details

On this page you will find a description of our offerings, how our program works, and important links.

Our event offerings

Depending on the date you are reading this page, we have three Social Media Marketing World products that are eligible for our affiliate program.

#1: The All-Access Ticket: This our main product. This ticket provides all the benefits of Social Media Marketing World, including access to ALL of our content (including creator tracks), workshops, parties, food, and session recordings.

#2: The Creator Ticket: This ticket is a more economical option for bloggers, vloggers, podcasters, or live video producers who only want content for creators. It provides access to our creator content tracks, including blogging, YouTube, live video, and podcasting.

This table helps showcase the differences between these two ticketing options:

How our affiliate program works

When someone clicks on your affiliate link, a cookie is placed in their web browser that lasts for 180 days. Tracking is based on last action attribution.

Commission amounts: We pay $100 for each customer that is tracked to you and that has not been refunded. In some cases, customers make two payments. When that happens, $50 is credited to your account as each payment comes in, totaling $100 after the second payment has been received.

Speakers at Social Media Marketing World who are also affiliates will earn a different commission. Speak with your handler for more information.

Important terms and conditions:

#1: Payouts: Payouts happen within 30 days after the completion of the Social Media Marketing World event.

#2: Refunds: Commissions earned for customers who later cancel their tickets and receive refunds will be deducted from the final commission payout.

#3: Self purchases: If you purchase your own ticket using your own affiliate link, you will NOT earn a commission for that sale. Also, you will not earn commissions for sales to other employees from your company, members of your household, and so on.

#4: Foul play: If we determine that you are using your affiliate code to purchase tickets in a dishonest fashion, your affiliate commissions will be voided and you may be removed from the program.

#5: FTC compliance: The FTC’s Endorsement Guides state that “if there is a ‘material connection’ between an endorser (affiliate) and the marketer (Social Media Examiner) of a product (Social Media Marketing World) – that connection should be clearly and conspicuously disclosed.” Here is an article we wrote on this issue.
