Looking for Fundraising Ideas? Try Affiliate Marketing
They say the only sure things in life are death and taxes, but for nonprofits, fundraising can be added to that list. Survival depends on bringing in enough revenue to not only fund the programs but also the people running them; that means finding multiple revenue streams from events, donors, grants, endowments and other creative means.
One avenue that’s often overlooked by nonprofits is affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketing, a revenue generator well-known by successful online businesses for years, is slowly starting to gather momentum in the nonprofit world.
One difference between nonprofits who can barely keep the lights on every month and those that thrive is creating multiple and diverse revenue streams so that if one dries up, you won’t have to close your doors. While affiliate marketing won’t bring in the same large amounts as an auction or capital campaign, it does have the potential to provide a steady stream of monthly income.
What is affiliate marketing?
Affiliate marketing is when you earn a commission by promoting a company’s product that you believe in and want to share with your readers, subscribers and followers.
How does the WonderWe Pro Affiliate Program work?
WonderWe Pro’s Affiliate Program allows you to earn a commission every time you send a referral to WonderWe Pro from your unique affiliate link (that we provide when you sign up) that eventually converts into a sale of the software. While it would be fantastic if you already used WonderWe Pro, it’s not a requirement of the program.
What’s the cost?
There is no cost to join WonderWe Pro’s Affiliate Program and no minimum sales or referral requirements to earn a commission.
How do I promote WonderWe Pro?
The number of ways to promote WonderWe Pro is limited only by your creativity. Some of the most effective promotion methods are to:

- Promote your blog by sharing it on your social media sites and to your email subscribers.
- Offer a low-cost promotion that encourages media shares of the post that include the affiliate links, like a giveaway.
