The WCCL Affiliate Program: 10 Reasons You Should Join Today!

As you may know, The WCCL Network publish my writing courses, including The 10-Day E-Book and Write Any Book in Under 28 Days. They also sponsor this blog.

What you may not know is that they also run a highly professional affiliate program. If you have a blog, a website or a newsletter, you can join the WCCL affiliate program and receive generous commissions for every sale generated via your links.

Here are ten reasons you should give joining the WCCL affiliate program serious consideration...

1. Commissions of up to 50% of the sale price.

2. Notifications sent by email every time you make a sale.

3. Commission payments sent automatically by PayPal after 35 days (assuming the order hasn't been cancelled). There is no minimum payment, and WCCL pay all of Paypal's fees.

4. Free publicity materials, including banners, text links, model sales letters, and so on.

5. Two-tier referral system - introduce other affiliates and earn a 5% bonus on all the commissions they earn.

6. Regular affiliate contests that pay out thousands of dollars in extra bonuses.

7. Special affiliate-only deals you can offer to your own list for added profits.

8. Lifetime commission on sales.

9. Hundreds of products you can sell - not only writing courses, but also self-development, health, lifestyle, software, drivers' guides, and so on.

10. WCCL has a proven eight-year track record, with over 600,000 online transactions. The program (and indeed the company) is reliable, honest, and isn't going to disappear any time soon.

It's very easy to become a WCCL affiliate. You complete the simple application form on the affiliate sign-up page and submit this. Within a short time your application will be checked and (probably) approved. You will then be able to obtain the HTML code for a wide range of banners and text links, all with your affiliate details embedded. All you have to do then is copy and paste this into your web page in the appropriate place/s. Trust me, it's not rocket science!

If you decide to do this, can I offer a few quick hints and tips from my own experience...

1. Just putting a banner on your web page is unlikely to generate many sales. It's much better to put a review of the product in question with your affiliate link included, so that people wanting to buy as a result of your recommendation will click through this to the sales page.

2. If you're going to write a review, try to make it reasonably objective. Yes, you want people to click through your link and buy the product - but if your "review" appears to be more of an uncritical hype, some people are likely to be put off. So praise the product's good points, by all means, but if there is anything you dislike, don't be afraid to say so. People will trust your judgement more.

3. Consider offering an extra incentive of your own to secure the sale. For example, you could offer an extra mini-report on a topic not covered in depth in the product you are reviewing, or simply a list of relevant websites. See my review of Write A Movie in a Month for an example of how I have used this technique. Obviously, you will need to ask people to send you a copy of their email sales receipt so that you can send them their bonus after they have bought the product.

Finally, if you sign up as a WCCL affiliate via this blog post, I will earn a 5% commission on any sales you generate - so, clearly, it's in my interests to help you succeed. If you have any queries, therefore, feel free to ask me (though for technical or financial matters you may be better contacting WCCL directly via In addition, if you write about any of my writing courses (or any other WCCL writing products) let me know and I'll give your review a mention via Twitter, Facebook, this blog, etc. This may or may not generate extra sales for you, but it will certainly bring you extra traffic you wouldn't have had otherwise.

Good luck, and I hope to see you joining the WCCL affiliate program soon!
