5 ideas for promoting your referral link

1. Write a blog post
Subtly integrating your referral link into a blog post is another great way to promote your referral link. While there's no limit on the type of blog articles that may work, here are some examples to get you inspired:

- Design Buffs vs. another service you have used
- Share a roundup of your favourite design tools
- Honest review of Design Buffs
- "Why I switched to Design Buffs" article
- Marketing services & tools I can't live without

2. Send a newsletter

If you have a weekly or monthly newsletter, this is a perfect way to promote your new referral link. You can introduce Design Buffs to your audience, promote a blog post (like one of the topics mentioned above), or promote one of your products with a sale or something that piques interest.

3. Add your referral link to your website

A referral link, description, or branded image works in any number of places on a website. For example, you could pop a link into your sidebar, footer, about page, or even within the navigation under a current (or new) tab dedicated to endorsements.

4. Webinar partnership (work with us)
We’ll work with you to come up with a topic that works for both of our audiences and execute it together. We’ll promote you to our list and vice versa 😄.

5. Share a post on LinkedIn

At Design Buffs, we work with B2B businesses and startups so LinkedIn could be the perfect channel to share your referral link. You can either record a quick video or write a text status update adding the link to the first comments.

The fine print

There are a few rules about the Design Buffs affiliate program you should know about. No “gotchas” here, just some terms to keep everyone happy.

  • Payouts are made at the beginning of each month.

  • Referral commissions are approved on a monthly basis. There is a minimum delay of 30 days before approving pending commissions (to account for any refund requests).

  • Depending on when a commission is earned in a month, it can be pending for up to 60 days.

  • Self-referrals are not allowed. The point is to get you to refer other people. This is not a way to get a discount on your own account 😉

  • Abuse or gaming will result in having your account banned.

  • In some cases, we can give credit to a referral partner even if the customer didn’t sign up through their link (for example, if they didn’t sign up through their link by mistake). If you have a case like that, contact us and we’ll do our best to help.

  • We reserve the right to change the terms of the affiliate program at any time.
