Affiliate FAQs

If you have just become an affilaite, or are considering becoming one, you will likely have some questions on how to get active within the program.

How do I make money?

You earn commissions by referring customers to our website, where they subscribe to our premium options trading service.

You will earn a 50% of the fee, as a commission when they subscribe.

You don't even need a website (although having your own website helps). You can promote our product via search engines, postings in internet forums, tweeting, posting links on Facebook, LinkedIn, recording videos, or simply email to all your friends and people you know with your affiliate link to our service. If you have your own website set up with live chat software, simply talk to your visitors in real time on your website and send them your affiliate links through chat.

Once you reach a balance of at least $1,000 in commission fees, we will send you the funds within 30 days of the end of each quarter.

How to start promoting your products?

Go to the Getting Started section on the main page after you log-in. Generally, you should choose some banners and links, and place them onto your pages. When your readers click on a banner, they will be redirected to our web page. If this reader subscribes to our service, you will be rewarded with a commission for this sale.

How do I know I will be paid for my referral?

The program is powered by Post Affiliate Pro, the leading affiliate tracking software. Post Affiliate Pro uses a combination of cookies and IP address logging to track referrals for the best possible reliability. When your reader follows your affiliate link to our site, our affiliate system registers this referral and places a cookie on his or her computer. When the reader pays for the service, the affiliate system checks for a cookie (if not found, the system then checks for the IP address of the referral) and credits your account with the commission.

This process is absolutely automatic. All your referrals will be properly tracked.

How and when will I be paid?

You can choose to be paid by PayPal or cheque; the commissions will be paid once you reach a balance of over $1000, and will be sent to you within 30 days of the end of each quarter.

What is the affiliate link?

An affiliate link is a special URL which re-directs your readers to our web site. You will get the URL's for different banners in your affiliate panel in the banners and links section of “Promotion” within the affiliate panel. You have a general affiliate link, which can be seen at the top of the homepage of your affiliate panel. It will look similar to “http://www.skoptionstrading.com/?a_aid=4ff63c167fff1”. The unique ID should be added to the end of any URL to SK Options Trading that you want to be counted as your referral. The unique ID is the bolded and underlined here http://www.skoptionstrading.com/?a_aid=4ff63c167fff1.

Any banners that you choose to use will have your ID code already embedded in them so you do not need to add your code to the banners.

What if I forget to add the unique ID?

If you think you may occasionally forget to add your unique ID, or you think you have forgotten it and don’t want to traipse back to find where you missed it, then there is a solution. We have a technology available to you that can make any link to SK Options Trading on your website refer to you as the source. In simple terms, it adds your unique ID to every link to us on your website without the visitor or affiliate being able to see it. The technology is called DirectLink URLs, and can be found in the affiliate panel by going to Promotion-Banners & Links-DirectLink URLs, or by simply clicking here.  Once on that page simple click the “Add URL” button at the bottom and enter your website in the form *yoursite.com* to the URL section (For example, http://www.skoptionstrading.com/ would be entered as *skoptionstrading.com*), and then click save. We will then approve your website, and all links to us on your site will automatically refer to you.

Do you have any training program for affiliates?

The basics of affiliate marketing and most useful tips are described in your affiliate panel. If you are serious about earning your income as an affiliate, we recommend the SuperAffiliate Handbook as a very good guide to affiliate marketing.

How do I get the Banners working on my website?

To get the banners working, all you have to do is add the simple HTML code anywhere on your website. Most websites have an option to add HTML widgets, in which case you can paste the code in there. If you have any trouble installing the banners, please let us know so that we can provide some assistance, or alternatively if you have a website manager they may be able to install the banner for you. You can contact us if you have any qyestions or queries and we will respond as soon as possible.

How often should I update my banners?

You don't need to as we update them, the system will then automatically update your banners on your website. This means the banners will self update on your website when new ones are issued, so you do not have to worry about keeping them fresh. The code for the banners on your website will never need to be updated after the initial installation.

Can I see your past recommendations?

You can view our past trading record on our website here, and all of our past trading signals and market updates up to the end of 2011 here.
