In my earlier post I talked about Make money online using Dreamhost affiliate program, and I promised that I will be sharing post on how you can promote Dreamhost affiliate program. Dreamhost is one of those affiliate programs which worked for me, and using it I made good passive income.
To get started with, if you have not joined their affiliate, you can join now and it’s free.
So I assume by now you have an affiliate account with Dreamhost and using your credential, login to dreamhost panel.
How to Create Dreamhost Discount code for your Blog readers?
One of the best method which you can use with Dreamhost aff. Program is they allow you to create a promo code, using this you can offer discount to your readers. You can generate maximum discount up to $97. Though I suggest create discount coupon for $50 maximum as this will help you to make money.
Once you are inside Panel, click on rewards button at the right to create a promo code. Click on Create your own promo code at the bottom of the page.
Click on Create a new Promo code. You can also see all the promo code which you have created till now:
First thing which I would do is create a promo code with Meaningful name. In the past I have created SML50, SML97 for Shoutmeloud and so on for other blogs. You might like to use some name, which you can easily recall and related to your brand.
You have option to add extra goodies like extra domain name, private IP and so on. Though this will decrease your affiliate income.
Dreamhost let you get a maximum of $97 commission every sale. So if you are giving a discount of $50, for every sale you will be making $47. I usually support creating a promo code for $50 discount.
Once you have entered all required field, click on Create this promo code now. You will see Promo code successfully generated message or if that promo code already exist, you will be asked to select some other name.
Linking Promo code to your Affiliate link:
When you will login to your Panel and click on Rewards tab, you will be seeing your affiliate link.
So in this case my affiliate link is http://www.dreamhost.com/r.cgi?467570. Now all I need to do is add my promo code after my Aff. link. So for Example to link my SML50 promo code, which offer $50 discount, I will use this link:
So now when ever a user will sign up this promo code will be used and he will get $50 discount on Hosting. So all you need to do is, after your aff. link add |promocode
Why $50 Promo code?
Some time back I createdwhich is the maximum discount one can offer. Many ShoutMeloud readers signed up with that code (SML97) to get $97 discount but they received only $50 discount.
Dreamhost Customer care guy added that for certain region maximum possible discount is $50. So instead of creating a false alarm for your readers, create $50 discount code as Dreamhost guys are not revealing which countries are eligible for $97 discount and which countries for $50 discount.
How to promote Dreamhost Affiliate Program
