Looking at Kartra Affiliate Program Overview
Let’s take a look at how to sign up for the Kartra affiliate program, how much they pay, and how much you can make with it:
How Do You Sign Up for Kartra Affiliate Program?
Becoming a Kartra affiliate is a kind of straightforward process. To signup as an affiliate of Kartra sales funnel builder, you have to go to home.kartra.com/partners to start your Kartra affiliate application process.
Click on the “AFFILIATE SIGN UP” button which takes you to a popup to accept its affiliate Terms and Conditions. This is a required step for every affiliate program signup.
It’s important you always read them (sometimes I don’t). Click the “I ACCEPT” button to proceed with your affiliate application.
The next screen will prompt you to either SIGN IN as a Kartra user or SIGN UP to create a free account.
How Much Does Kartra Pay Affiliates?
Being a subscription-based software for businesses and online marketers, you earn commissions either on monthly bases or yearly bases, depending on the option chosen by the user.
You stop earning once a user cancels his Kartra account. Also, note that you don’t earn any commissions on trial accounts. Even though it costs $1 for the first 14days trial period – you earn nothing from that.
Now, on how much Kartra pays and what you make as an affiliate:
Kartra affiliate program pays you 40% commissions on every paid user you bring in with your unique affiliate link. And this is a recurring income.
Your commissions automatically update when your referred users decide to upgrade their account anytime.
Another cool stuff about the Kartra affiliate is the JV recruitment program which is also called the 2nd tier.
Here you further earn 10% recurring income for every sale generated by affiliates. I call it affiliate recruiting affiliates.
How Much Do You Earn as Kartra Affiliate?
Here is where we dive into real mathematics. We’re going to calculate how much you earn (in $) as your monthly commissions for each of the Kartra plans and packages.
Yeah, we already know the percentage, how about the actual money?

Getting the Best from Kartra Affiliate Opportunity
In this section of this post, we shall take a look at how to promote Kartra as a platform to small business owners, marketers, online entrepreneur and other categories of people who needs this platform to run their business…
…so, you can make some cool money with it. If possible, make the Kartra affiliate business your source to earning a full-time income online.
Now let’s go into a few tips on how to promote Kartra, shall we?
Tip #1: Provide Funnel Building Services
Do you have what it takes to build a funnel on Kartra, get business owners who need them and sell them on the funnels or share the entire campaign with them?
Then this is no-brainier way to sell Kartra as an affiliate and make cool commissions.
You won’t just make money as an affiliate but also selling your funnel building services to marketers or specific small business owners who are in need of a marketing funnel.
All you just got to do is set everything up (the entire campaign) on your own Kartra account, then share it with them.
The only problem I think you might encounter with this method is – getting clients to sell your services to.
And it shouldn’t really be a problem as you can reach out to businesses offline, get into Facebook groups, use your social profile and a few other methods in acquiring clients.
However, what I’d advise and always recommend is niching down to a specific audience so it would be easy finding them and you’ll also be standing out.
What I mean is to select a particular industry to serve, study it, and become the category marketing king in that space.
Like you can be a Kartra sales funnel expert for any of the below:
- Real estate funnel expert (kinda saturated but you can still find your voice)
- Restaurant sales funnel expert
- Fitness funnel expert (what type of fitness? be more specific)
- Finance sales funnel expert
- Saloon sales funnel expert
- Plumbing sales funnel expert
- Insurance sales funnel builder
- Lots and lots of them…
If you have an existing business or experience in any field outside of marketing – look to see if there’s a way to incorporate sales funnel to that business.
I think almost every business requires a sales funnel in a way or two.
Tip #2: Sell Kartra Directly Using Various Channels
Remember when it comes to making sales online – you can’t do without traffic. In fact, no traffic literally means no online marketing.
Traffic is the heartbeat of marketing online.
To sell Kartra as an affiliate without our first tip of becoming a funnel-building service provider – first of all, you need to choose a traffic source, then provide solution-driven content via that traffic source.
I will explain it in detail soon.
Before we move further, if there’s one thing I have to tell you – it is for you to avoid selling Kartra as a business opportunity.
Like trying to sell Kartra as a money-making platform. NEVER DO THAT!
Kartra is only a tool.
Now, there a few traffic sources you can use to provide value and in return get people to use your Kartra affiliate link in signing up – if they get value from your content.
Let’s discuss them briefly:
#1: Promoting via Blogging
A typical example of value-based blogging for an affiliate is this blog you are on right now. And this is my favorite way to do affiliate marketing.
Most people hate to write, they hate blogging, they hate SEO, they hate the need to wait for months before their blogging efforts begin to yield returns.
Well, there are other routes to take.
Yes, blogging takes time, but it pays more for the longer-run. Because you’re building a great asset online that will keep producing traffic, sales, and commissions for years to come.
It requires a bit of tedious work upfront. Someone like me is perfectly okay with that.
But I bet you – if you follow a proven model or learn from someone (like me of course 😊) who has been into the blogging and SEO affiliate thing for a while – you can’t be lost.
I wrote a piece right here a while back on how to start an affiliate marketing blog from scratch to finish.
Let that be your guide.
Or maybe you need a team of experts that have been in the blogging and marketing game longer than myself – then check out this free training on how to build profitable websites that makes you money.
Also, read how they do it. From beginning to end.
#2: Promoting via YouTube
I’d admit that I’m not a video type of person.
That’s why I chose the blogging route. You know, YouTube can really be a goldmine for making insane affiliate commissions by providing helpful tutorials, demos, comparison videos, etc.
Imagine having your own space on the world’s second-largest search engine?
I know quite a lot of million-dollar affiliates crushing it over at YouTube. Hey, their successes didn’t take place overnight. They produced a shit ton of content over the years, built their followings, and monetized via affiliate marketing.
Don’t be discouraged as it’s NEVER too late to create your own uniqueness on YouTube.
To get a headstart on how to rank videos and promote your products on YouTube – here is a guide by Brian Dean I always refer people to.
Another recommended step-by-step resource I find very detailed on doing affiliate on YouTube is Spencer Mecham Affiliate Secrets course.
This is the best course on doing affiliate marketing without building a blog or a website.
If you want a review, I wrote one myself after going through it. Read it here.
#3: Promoting via Facebook Groups
One of the ways I made my first ever affiliate commissions was using the power of Facebook organic marketing. No, I never created a group to make the sale.
I simply leveraged other people’s Facebook group.
Wondering how that works? Okay.
All you have to do is optimize your Facebook profile for conversions by setting up your profile funnel, get a good headshot, a nice banner and a featured photo with a precise CTA (call-to-action) to your affiliate link or lead page that promotes Kartra on the back-end.
Do you get the idea?
The next phase of things is going into closed, neatly moderated Facebook groups where those who need Kartra as a solution congregates.
The next step is posting valuable posts, interacting, commenting, and acknowledging group members’ posts.
With time people will start clicking on your profile to check out your offers and what you (value giver) is all about, sending friend requests, messaging. It works like charm!
What do you think is going to happen when people click the funnel link on your bio?
Of course, that leads to your lead capture page or Kartra affiliate link.
Countless people are going to message you for help. That’s another avenue to build a relationship and offer Kartra as a solution.
Other Tips to Promote Kartra
Remember, Kartra gives you lots of links to its different landing pages, right? If you aren’t aware get into your Kartra affiliate dashboard to see them.
Use all of them where necessary!
For example, you can promote it as an easy-to-use form builder – then you send people to the Kartra form landing page.
You can promote it as an affiliate management platform and send people to the dedicated affiliate management page.
Or my favorite of all Kartra funnels and campaign pages.
- Kartra helpdesk
- Kartra videos
- Kartra Pages
- Kartra course builder or membership platform
- Kartra checkouts
- Kartra Mails and automation
You can get your affiliate links for these pages from your Kartra affiliate center. If you like to track them individually. Kartra provides all that for you.
Apart from Kartra, you can also promote its sister products such as EverWebinar and WebinarJam. All under GenesisDigital – the parent company.
The last but not the least tip I have for is:
Sometimes when you apply from this address home.kartra.com/parters, your affiliate application might get declined if you don’t open an account. Even after waiting to be confirmed for days or weeks.
Don’t panic yet.
Just go to kartra.com/signup to start your 14days trial for $1 to have access to Kartra and get your affiliate link.
Registering as a Kartra user automatically registers you for the Kartra affiliate program.
After all, doesn’t it make sense to have an account or at least get yourself familiar with the platform you want to promote?
As you can see this post isn’t all about the Kartra affiliate program. I try as much as possible to give you some pointers on how to go about promoting it and earning some reasonable commissions for yourself.
