Post Your Affiliate Program! 🔥

I figure there are some of us working in "complementary" niches and we could benefit from utilizing each other's affiliate programs. I did a search to see if I could find some affiliate programs of fellow indie hackers, but didn't have much luck.

This thread is to post:

  1. Your startup and what it does
  2. A link to your affiliate program

🤞 Hopefully this will get some exposure for your affiliate program, drive revenue, and create some friendships along the way.

I'll start:

  1. Removaly - A SaaS to remove your personal information from the internet.
  2. Link to affiliate program

GO! 👇

    Hey Kyle,

    Question... What do you think of an alternative to "affiliate marketing"—a platform that connects you to various distribution channels where your product would be sold via a conversion optimized checkout process? And better yet, what if it positioned your product as an upsell thus putting your product right in front of customers when they are most likely to buy again...

    Interested in hearing your thoughts :D

    1. 1

      Sent you an email. I'd be interested to hear more 👍

    2. 1

      That sounds quite interesting - are you building something like this?

      1. 2

        Hey Harry,
        Yup we're working on it—accepting Makers on our waitlist now. Shoot me an email if you'd like to give the platform a test-drive once we launch. 👍

    Someka.net - We develop ready-to-use Excel spreadsheet templates. This is quite a niche vertical and we are one of a handful in the world who does this professionally at a company level. (yeah people are still using Excel in 2021. Much much more than you would expect :)

    Scrintal – create visual notes and connect those either with each other or with info from external sources (SoMe, forum - e.g. IH, website, pdf, video). We're still on waitlist (5000 ppl & growing) and getting ready for private beta in December.

    We only have a referral program so far. Working quite well.

    Check it out by signing up 👉 www.scrintal.com! It'd be great to hear your feedback on the rewards and sharing structure.

    1. 1

      Hey @ardaertem love landing page of Scrintal - Typography, copy and illustrations all look really nice. Quick question - How did you build your waiting list to 5,000 people? That's quite an achievement.

      1. 1

        Thank you very much Janinah! I appreciate your kind comments. We worked with a copywriter which later turned out to be very useful for the design team.

        We tried a ton of different stuff (still trying) – probably the most notable one was building a mentorship program for students with a bit of financial support. This has generated a lot of interest. We also partnered with another organisation and sponsored their scholarship in exchange for sign ups. Those who joined the waitlist received a detailed explanation about why we are building Scrintal, what it'll be all about.

        Honestly, we're far from cracking the code but experimenting several different things along the way.

        Once we learn a bit more, I'll write a post just about the referral topic.

        1. 1

          Interesting ideas and not what I was expecting! I was thinking you were going to say something like PR or lots of posting in Reddit or a viral tweet. 😅 Having said that though, I'm thinking the mentorship programme in particular is an interesting approach to take that clearly paid off. I look forward to reading your post at some point and thanks for the quick reply.

          1. 1

            Haha! That is something in the pipeline :) What has worked for you so far? Any tips to share?

            1. 1

              Well I've only just done a soft launch. So haven't started selling products and services yet. When I do though I intend on getting customers/clients from forums such as here, product hunt and UK Business Forum.
              Plus, by advertising services on exchanges/market places like Upwork, people per hour etc. As well as reaching out to contacts/network.

              1. 1

                Awesome! Let's stay in touch and happy to help if I many in any way.
