Thank you so much for your interest in our brand new Bloom True Affiliate Program. If you are wondering, “What exactly is an Affiliate Program?” we’ve got you covered.
Basically, when you sign up for the program, you’re given a unique affiliate link that points people directly to the Bloom True E-Course sales page.
When someone signs up for the course using your link, you get 20% of what they pay for the course. This comes to $59.40 for each person who buys a full-price E-Course (currently $297) through your link. If they have a coupon code for a reduced course, you’ll receive 20% of that reduced rate.
Just like that. Cash into your PayPal. BAM.
We like to think you might use this money for buying more art supplies and more creative adventures!
We believe the Bloom True E-Course is an extraordinary adventure in painting and life, and we’re grateful to have you help us spread the good word and inspire more people around the world to join the Bloom True Tribe.
Your affiliate payment will be paid to your paypal account in the middle of every month for all the sales you have generated that month. Please note the Terms & Conditions outlined here.
The course is sold in US dollars and affiliate payments are made in US dollars via Paypal. The actual equivalent in your currency will depend on the Paypal exchange rate on the day of payment. (Paypal will make the conversion for you). If you have any questions, please check out the FAQ below.

(1) Sign Up
If you are not yet registered as an affiliate of Bloom True, you can join by completing the form on the right.
If you don’t already have an account on this site, you will need to choose your own Username and Password, and then make a note of these somewhere safe for future reference.
Your Username will be used to identify your account and personalize your tracking links. (Note: If you do not wish to see your personal name appear in tracking links please choose a Username that does not include your personal name)
When completing the form please be sure to include the email address of the Paypal account you will use to be paid. Please note that by registering for the affiliate program you agree to abide by the Terms & Conditions as outlined here.
(2) Get your unique link.
Once you have completed the signup process above, you can gain access to our Affiliate Area which contains your unique affiliate link.
(3) Share your link!
Whenever you feel inspired to share about your Bloom True E-Course experience with your community, remember to use your unique link, so any sales generated can be tracked back to you.
You can post your unique link on your website, in a blog post, through your newsletter or through any social media outlets you use (Facebook posts, Instagram posts, Twitter posts, etc.).
We encourage you to share authentically about your personal experience with the course as this is by far the best way to share anything! You might consider sharing what you learned, how it changed the way you paint and why you think it’s an awesome course. Sharing your paintings is also a great way to share.
If you would like some promotional ideas and buttons for your blog etc, please check out the ‘Creatives’ page here.
Just remember, you’ll need to include your unique tracking link (either linked to text or an image) in order for us to be able track your referrals, rather than linking to the general course page. For example, when you write ‘Bloom True: the E-Course’ in a sentence, you’ll want to add a hyperlink to your unique tracking code, so if someone clicks on that link to find out more, you will be paid a referral fee if they sign up for the course.*
*Please note ‘cookies’ are stored on your readers’ computers for up to 30 days (if permitted by the reader in their computer settings). This makes any particular reader identifiable to our system, so if that reader clicks on your link and comes back within 30 days to register, you will still be credited with that sale. However, if they choose to ‘clear their cookies’ at any point this will not happen, as we will not be able to identify them as having previously visited via your link.
Please understand this is beyond our control and we cannot do anything about it should they choose to clear their cookies.Thanks for understanding.
(4) For transparency, we encourage you to identify to your readers that you are an affiliate of the E-Course, whenever you use your unique tracking link (for example, in a blog post or newsletter). In some countries this is a legal requirement and in all countries it is good courtesy to your readers!
This is how it works…
(1) Once you have registered as an affiliate and used your unique tracking code, our clever software will track any sales generated via your unique link. You can see an update of how many sales you have generated via the Affiliate Center (which you can access via the link sent to your email upon registration for the Affiliate Program or via the ‘Affiliate Login’ link on the right hand side of this page).
(2) In the middle of each month, you will be paid 20% of each full price sale you generated through your paypal account since your last payout. You will be responsible for any receiving fees charged by Paypal. Once the payment has been made you will receive email notification from Paypal that the funds have been sent to you. It may take 5-7 working days for the payment to arrive in your account.
(3) That’s it! Easy peasy.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do you have a question about the affiliate program? Please check our FAQ below, and if you do not find what you are looking for please email us: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do I need to have taken the Bloom True E-Course to participate as an affiliate?
This affiliate program is aimed at people who have personal experience with my teaching, ideally through the E-Course, but alternatively through a live workshop or through Studio Diaries. Alternatively, if you have read my book and felt it had a real impact on you, and feel confident in promoting the course, then you are welcome to join. Your readers, followers and friends trust your judgment, so we always encourage you to speak from the heart.
What exactly do I need to share on my blog/newsletter/social media?
The absolute minimum thing you need to share is your unique tracking link, so we can track your sales. However, you are much more likely to encourage other people to join the course if you share your personal, heartfelt experience and how the work has made an impact on your life. Images of your paintings are also wonderful to share, or you can use our images over on the Creatives Page.
