I had a brainstorm last weekend, and tonight, I’ve got a new way for you to make money: Platinum Affiliate Membership. There are a few things you should know about it, so please at least skim this entire message to ensure that you don’t miss anything important.

First, what is Platinum Affiliate Membership: Platinum Affiliate Membership is your opportunity to increase your commission rates by 10% for life. Whether I change the standard commission rates, whether you win the monthly contest, no matter what happens, as a Platinum Affiliate, I’ll tack an extra 10% to the commission rate you would otherwise have earned.

So if you refer $300 in sales one month and the standard commission rate is 30%, rather than earning $90, you’ll earn 40%, or $120. Simple enough, right!

Second, how do you become a Platinum Affiliate? The good news is that you don’t have to be a “super affiliate”. You don’t even have to have made a single sale in the past.

The other good news is that the bad news isn’t all bad. The “bad” part of it is that upgrading to Platinum status for life costs a one-time payment of $100.

Third, the good news about the bad news :-) The good news about that $100 upgrade fee is that when you refer new affiliates who upgrade to Platinum status, you earn not just the standard commission rate, but a special commission rate of 50% on their upgrade fee. That’s $50 for each new affiliate you refer who upgrades.

Fourth, the good news about the bad news is even better! Don’t forget that if you’ve upgraded to Platinum Affiliate yourself, you earn an extra 10% on every sale — and that includes Platinum upgrades. So if you’re a Platinum Affiliate, you earn $60 for each new affiliate you refer who upgrades.

Finally, don’t forget the older good news. If you win the monthly affiliate contest and you’re a Platinum affiliate, you’ll get your 10% Platinum bonus plus the 15% contest bonus, which means you can earn up to $75 for referring people to this affiliate program.
