Denver, CO (PRWEB) April 12, 2012
To bring the experience of DIY landlording to more property owners, CorporateHousingbyOwner.com (CHBO), an online marketplace connecting thousands of individual property owners offering short-term furnished and unfurnished rentals with potential renters around the world, today launches a new affiliate program.
Any individual or business with a website can set up an affiliate account and receive a commission for referring new members to CHBO.
Kimberly Smith, the CEO of CorporateHousingbyOwner.com, says the program is targeted at individuals and companies that are already referring others to CHBO.
“Corporate housing companies, Realtors, and real estate bloggers are always sending individuals to CHBO because they know it is the solution their clients need to list, track, market and secure high-quality renters. We appreciate their referrals very much and want to offer them the opportunity to get compensated for their trust in CHBO,” says Smith.
How It Works
An individual or company can create an affiliate link through CHBO’s partnership with ShareASale.com. Once the affiliate is approved, s/he can begin sharing that link, for example, through their social networks, through a banner or button ad on their websites, Google PPC ads, or through an email distribution to their network. When someone follows the provided affiliate link, cookies track the visitor and promptly notify CHBO if a purchase is made. If a purchase is made, the affiliate gets a 15% commission on the total sale.
“The best way to set up a successful referral program is for companies to add a button ad about CHBO on their websites and then link the graphic to their assigned referral link,” adds Smith. “Every time someone clicks on the image, they will have the opportunity to explore CHBO and make a purchase. An affiliate receives, on average, $40 per sale.”
To qualify as a CHBO affiliate, an individual or company must register an account with ShareASale.com. The person also must operate at least one website. Once an account is approved, the affiliate will have access to CHBO banner ads and other creative to help them send referrals to CHBO.
“Our affiliate program is perfect for any real estate professional who directly interacts with individuals buying, selling or renting out their homes. It’s the prefect way for them to make additional revenue,” adds Smith.
Since its soft launch last month, the CHBO affiliate program has already signed up more than 100 affiliates and paid out hundreds of dollars in commissions.
