Benefits to Becoming a SpiderOak Affiliate/Reseller

Would you be surprised to learn that affiliates can make good money? This week, we are re-launching our Affiliate Program and invite you to explore the benefits. It might be for you…

A *recent study found that affiliates decide which programs to market based on 1) Commission, 2) Merchant Reputation, and 3) Product or Service Relevancy.

Commission:

SpiderOak pays affiliates 50% of revenue for the first six months.

Payment Scenario

  1. Monthly Paid User @ 100 GBs: SpiderOak pays affiliates 50% of monthly revenue for the first six months for a total of $30 per paid user (50% of $10/month x 6 months = $30).

Payment Scenario

  1. Yearly Paid User @ 100 GBs: SpiderOak pays affiliates 50% of annual revenue paid out over a six-month period ($100 plan divided across 12 months is $8.33. 50% of $8.33 is $4.17 x 6 months = $25).

Payment Scenario

  1. Free User @ 2 GBs: SpiderOak pays affiliates $0.25 per user for every qualified lead (i.e. the SpiderOak application has been installed)

Merchant Reputation:

SpiderOak is the only ‘Zero-Knowledge’ Product in the Cloud Space. We’ll let the press do the talking for us:

Product or Service Relevancy:

From the ground up, SpiderOak was designed with privacy at the core. The company’s industry-leading ‘Zero-Knowledge’ privacy standard protects user data by encrypting file backup, synchronization and storage throughout every stage.

SpiderOak servers never store the plaintext version of a user’s encryption keys (or password). As a result, nobody can view any portion of a user’s content including filenames, file types, folder names, etc. Even the members of the SpiderOak staff with physical access to the servers can never view plaintext user information.

Metrics:

More than 1400 professional affiliates were surveyed in the *2012 Affiliate Summit AffStat Report. It found that 62.5% of affiliates promote consumer-related products, like SpiderOak. ShareASale – a marketing platform to exclusively for affiliates and merchants – is among the top three networks that affiliates participate in. There was a lot of great information in the report and and I encourage everyone to take a look.

What did surprise me was reading that more than half of the 1,400 affiliates surveyed promote less than 10 programs through their marketing channels. That is a small number – particularly when a little over 10% of this group brings in over $100,000/year.
