Welcome to SunFrog Shirts! In this article we will be covering the basics of how to use the SunFrog platform to sell t-shirts online. We will cover how to navigate the dashboard, affiliate commissions and adding the affiliate ID to the end of a marketed URL.
The first thing our affiliates will notice is the dashboard. From here we can navigate to any of the features with the top nav drop down menus, or use the mobile friendly dashboard buttons. In the top right corner you will see messages as well as your affiliate ID, and log out drop down menu.
Buttons and Analytics
Let us jump into managing and editing designs to check out some of the new features we have added for the affiliates.
The first thing to take a look at is the new buttons highlighted in the photo below. These were added to provide additional information about a page and show analytic data, depending on the page you are on. The educational blue button will expand the page to show more information about the feature you are in, the red video button will link to any video associated with the topic and the yellow graph button will show view/sale/conversion on your products.
You may have also noticed the addition of the events button. We were receiving many questions about what holidays to target, or what events should be most important. SunFrog has put together a lists of upcoming holidays that can be marketed, and which ones we will feature on the main page. The Contests page will have all information about the current contest SunFrog is running, and where you rank!
Traffic – More Data!
The graph report now displays more accurate information in an easy to read format. The date range can be adjusted anywhere within the last thirty days and we have added the ability to see your top five, twenty-five, or fifty designs. The new manager skin is just one of the many new features that SunFrog plans on releasing this year. Stay tuned for more!
Affiliates are the users who drive the traffic to our website to purchase t-shirts. Starting commission for affiliates is 35%.
Artists create the designs that the affiliates push traffic to and sell. Artists earn 5.5% on every design sold regardless of who is driving the traffic. Artists may also serve as their own affiliates, creating the designs and driving the traffic earning both commissions.
In order to market a shirt on social media, your own website or another medium, we will first need to attach our affiliate ID. To do this, go to the product page of the shirt you wish to market and add ?youraffiliateID to the end of the URL.
Now that all the basics have been covered head on over to SunFrog Affiliate Training for an overview of more advanced techniques.
