Paying Joint Venture Partners For The Sales of Their Courses

If you’ve created a membership site where you house other people’s content, courses, or downloads and you want to pay them when someone purchases their content, follow along.

Decide how much you plan to give Joint Venture partners or contributors. For example, if they are creating all of the content you may plan to give them 90% of all sales of their materials and keep 10% for housing it. Of course, these numbers will depend on your joint venture agreements.

Create The Affiliate Tier for Contributors

You will first want to set up an affiliate tier just for your contributors or joint venture partners. This is where you will set the percentage.

If you have different joint venture agreements or want to keep things totally separate for each partner, you could set up different tiers for each partner.

Have the Contributor Sign Up as An Affiliate

Have each joint venture partner sign up as an affiliate. You can do this via the opt-in forms in AccessAlly, or you could manually add them as an affiliate through your CRM and by adding their tag.

The easiest way is to have them opt-in through your affiliate sign up form.

Next, you will create an affiliate link for each of the order forms, for each of the content contributors’ courses or programs.

For example:

Sally gets an affiliate link for the order form for her program “Singing 101”.

John gets an affiliate link for the order form for his program “Dancing 101”.

This is the important part: in order to make sure that your content collaborator always gets their commissions, you need to set their affiliate link as the link to buy.

To get the right link for each affiliate, go to the Affiliates area, and click the “Manage” button next to the joint venture partner.

Then scroll down to the bottom of the page, and copy the link for that partner’s order form.

In Offerings settings for people who don’t have access and want to purchase – use the affiliate link for this particular joint venture partner.

And on your sales page, use the same link for the buy now button:

Pay your joint venture partners

Now each time you run the affiliate payout process, you will be paying out your joint venture partners their commissions.
