Raise more through affiliate marketing

Affiliate marketing (sometimes called referral marketing or influencer marketing) is a sales and marketing strategy where you, the creator, encourage your backers, media partners, and brand advocates to refer their network to your crowdfunding campaign in exchange for a reward when that referral leads to a pledge.

Affiliate marketing is one of the most cost-effective ways to get the word out about your project

Pay for performance

Pay out a commission when a referral leads to a successful pledge, not when a link is clicked.

Higher conversion rates

Backers are more likely to support a project that was recommended by someone they trust.

Get access to new audiences

Get in front of your affiliates’ audience without spending a dollar on paid ads.

Build an army of advocates

Rally a community of supporters who are eager to help you promote your project.

Content created for you

Affiliates will often create videos, blogs, or produce other content to help showcase your project.
