BK Stakeholders Leverage Collective Network

For Your Customers and Online Visitors: A 20% Discount
For You: A 10% Referral Fee, With Our Thanks

Berrett-Koehler Publishers now offers a referral program that pays you a commission for referring sales to our public BK website:


                         
Visitors to BKconnection.com from your website receive an automatic 20% discount on over 700 BK books, e-books, whitepapers, audio books, and recorded webinars. 


Our program, administered by the Google Affiliate Network, is similar to others such as the Amazon Associates Program or the Barnes & Noble Affiliate Network Program, but ours pays a 10% referral fee, which is higher than most other programs.

Note: This incentive program is tied to the BK website, which can ship digital products (e-books and whitepapers) worldwide, but can only ship hardcovers and paperbacks within the United States.

Why?

Spreading the Wealth Among BK Stakeholders

We want you and your readers to financially benefit from driving traffic and orders to our website.  Your readers can receive deep discounts on BK books if they arrive at our site through your referral link.  If we receive a sale derived from your online recommendation, you will receive a portion of the sale as our thanks.

How?

Steps to Become a BK Affiliate

1. New Accounts - Apply using this Primary Sign-up Form if you DON'T yet have an account with the Google Affiliate Network.  Don't let the "Publisher" name throw you; that's what Google calls affiliates.

2. Existing Accounts - Apply using this Alternative Sign-up Form if you DO already have an account with the Google Affiliate Network or Google AdSense.  For example, if you are signed up with the Barnes & Noble Affiliate Program, then you already have a Google Affiliate Network account.

3. Watch your email inbox for notification of your approval, first from Google and then from Berrett-Koehler (two-step process).

4. Sign in to your account and choose from the pre-configured banners (samples at left) or make your own links to your favorite BK books, and then place them on your website, blog, or social network pages. 

5. Once you have accumulated $50 in referral fees, we will authorize the Google Affiliate Network to send your first payment.   Your earnings will be paid directly from Google AdSense using your preferred payment method.

How Much?

Free Membership

There is no cost to you to become a BK affiliate.  The only investment is your time and energy.  Equally, there is no cost to your customers and online visitors. They will receive permanent discounts on BK products through this program.
