Monday 26, April 2010
GuideGecko, the innovative publishing platform and bookstore for food & travel guides, today announced the official launch of its affiliate program on www.GuideGecko.com. Bloggers and website owners from around the world can now sell the largest selection of food & travel guidebooks through their own homepage, and earn 10% commission on every sale, far above market standards of 4-6%.
All of the 3300+ guidebooks currently available on GuideGecko.com are eligible for the affiliate program, including books and PDF downloads. GuideGecko carries all major guidebook series, such as Frommer's and Lonely Planet, plus 100+ exclusive titles such as "Las Vegas for Kids" and "Wine Travel in Tuscany".
"The GuideGecko affiliate program is quick and easy to set up, highly targeted, and offers huge payouts of 10% for all sales, no matter if book or PDF", says Sue Bing Hao, Marketing Manager at GuideGecko." We offer unbeaten customer service and deliver worldwide, with free shipping to the main travel markets in the US, UK, Germany and Singapore. Together with long referral validity times of 90 days, the program is the perfect match for any food or travel website, no matter how large or small."
Registration for the affiliate program is free and takes less than a minute. Affiliates can refer customers to GuideGecko through links from their websites and newsletters, and from online Communities such as Facebook or Twitter. Affiliates also have access to a wide range of tailormade widgets which they can place directly on their websites. Widgets are available for individual guidebooks and for books by destination and by activity. Step-by-step instructions for integration with popular blogging platforms such as Wordpress and Blogger are provided, as well as explanations for custom websites.
GuideGecko identifies the affiliate referrals by a unique link code and handles the complete order process and customer support. Affiliates receive their sales commission on a monthly basis via PayPal, cheque or bank transfer, and can choose to be notified whenever an order is placed. Affiliates even earn their commission when customers do not buy immediately-once a user clicks on an affiliate link, the referral remains valid for 90 days.
