What is the School Fundraisers partner program?

As a member of PocketSmith's School Fundraisers partner program, you'll be promoting PocketSmith and be able to earn commissions for every user that signs up via your school. This affiliate program is set up to reward our partners (you) with a portion (commission) of the subscription price paid by a customer that you have referred to us. 

We pay you 20-30% recurring commissions depending on which plan the customer chooses. Our commissions are recurring which means that we pay commission on all future payments from a customer that you have referred to us. 

We manage our partner program with affiliate tracking software which records all the activity and sales that you have generated. 


Setting up your School Fundraisers partner account

To join the School Fundraisers partner affiliate program (if you have not already), head to our  sign up page and fill in your details. Once you've signed up, we'll send you an email to confirm your new account.


Signing in to your account

Once your new account has been confirmed, you will be able to sign in using your email address and password that you registered during sign-up. To sign in, head to the  same page you went to when you created your account, and click Sign in the top right-hand corner!


Promoting PocketSmith as a School Fundraiser partner 

As a member of our School Fundraiser partner program, you'll be promoting PocketSmith and able to earn commissions for every user that signs up via you. In order for your commissions to be credited to your school, it is essential that you use your unique referral link or the provided marketing assets to refer people to PocketSmith.

Using the Referral link

The referral link is your unique sign up link  that you can share. A person clicking on your referral link will then be taken to our plans page where they can sign up to PocketSmith. When someone signs up via this link, it will register in your dashboard within your affiliate account. 

Your unique referral link is on the Assets page, just head to the sidebar and select  Assets. If you can't see this in your sidebar, select  Programs >  View >  Assets

Using marketing assets

Marketing assets are the banners provided to you by PocketSmith for you to share. These are embedded with your unique  referral  link . Because the marketing assets that we provide are automatically associated with your unique referral link, a person clicking on one of these marketing assets will then be taken to our plans page where they can sign up to PocketSmith. This will register in your dashboard within your affiliate account.

Assets are provided on the Assets page, just head to the sidebar and select Assets. If you can't see this in your sidebar, select  Programs > View > Assets

Note

The easiest and most effective way to promote PocketSmith is to use one of our supplied banner images and/or text available in your ‘assets’ section.

Options for sharing your unique referral link or marketing assets

  • Sharing a post on social media
    You can share one of our banners via social media platforms. To do this, head to the Assets page and select the desired banner. From here you'll have the option to share directly to Twitter, Pinterest or Facebook. The first time you choose one of these options, follow the prompts to link the social media account to your affiliate account
  • Note

    Once the banner is shared to social media the image will be static and your unique referral link will be displayed below the image.

  • Directly from your website
    To place a banner on your school's webpage you will need to embed the banner code within the web page. We recommend getting your website manager to set this up for you! In this scenario, the banner will be a clickable image that forwards people onto the PocketSmith signup page.
  • Using email or a newsletter
    To use the referral link in an email, you can copy it from the Assets page and paste it directly into the body of an email. 

    If you want to insert the banner into an email as a clickable image, you'll need to copy the banner from the Assets page (not the banner code) and manually hyperlink the image. This means the image will be embedded with your referral link. The instructions for hyperlinking an image in an email may vary depending on your email provider. 

    Here is an example using Gmail:
    • On the Assets page, select a banner you'd like to use, then right-click the banner and select Copy Image
    • Compose a new message within Gmail and paste the image directly into the email body
    • Head back to your Asset page and copy your unique referral link
    • Head back to Gmail and in the email body, highlight the banner image (until the whole image turns blue) and select the link button from the text edit options
    • Select change from the pop-up menu and then delete any text in the "Web address" field
    • Paste your unique referral link in the "Web address" and click OK
  • Using the referral link on its own
    You can always share your unique referral link without a banner. To do this, just copy the referral link from the Assets page and paste it to your desired location. Alternatively, use one of the quick share options below your referral link:
