Earn income by sharing Simplifying DIY Design products and templates with your audience! Use this page to sign up, find out how our program works, ways to share, and other opportunities for collaboration that may be open to you!
Six months after launching Simplifying DIY Design, we replaced our full-time income and in less than 2 years, we generated over six figures in digital product sales alone. Since our very first product launch, we were approached by bloggers of all sizes asking if we had an affiliate program.
Since then, we've had amazing opportunities to share our templates and design knowledge with many audiences. We've been invited to travel, speak virtually, and guest appearances in memberships and other online communities as well as podcasts.
Templates are our JAM and our passion is to create design tools and systems that you can use to implement your way to success in your digital business! We look forward to working with you to share those designs with the audience you worked so hard to build!
Our program runs through ThriveCart. The following contains important information for you to know as an affiliate.
01. SIGN UP FOR THE PRODUCTS YOU WANT TO PROMOTE
You will first need to click the buttons associated with the products you want to promote. You will need to sign up for each one you'd like to promote. You may also sign up to promote freebies.
02. ACCESS THE PROGRAM IN THRIVECART
Inside ThriveCart, you'll have access to links, promotional information, and other assets.
03. REVIEW THE WALKTHROUGH
Once added to the affiliate program, please check your email. You will receive a welcome email that contains a video walkthrough of our program. This will address common questions and also give you a tour of the different features available in ThriveCart.
04. COOKIE INFORMATION
We use LAST CLICKED cookies which are locked for ONE year. As long as your audience member does not click on another affiliate's link, you will be locked to that individual for one year.
05. COMMISSION INFORMATION
We give 40% commissions to our affiliates. Almost all of our products contain an order bump at checkout. You'll also get 40% of the order bump if purchased. This increases the overall cart value of each sale for you!
06. EXTRA OPPORTUNITIES
We allow affiliates to provide their bonuses to incentivize sales. You have the option in ThriveCart to upload your own digital product as a bonus to the people who purchase through your specific affiliate link!
07. DO WE FUNNEL?
YES! Whether you're sharing a paid product or a freebie, please know we are constantly working on improving and optimizing the backend funnels of our offers. Your audience will be shared products and opportunities appropriately over time based on their interests, and you will be connected to future sales (as long as the cookie is maintained), which means passive income for you!
07. DO WE RETAIN?
Templates can be an easy "YES" for most people; however, it's unlikely they will purchase again if the quality isn't there. We are proud to say that the majority of customers that buy one of our products will go on to buy our other products. We stand behind our quality and the results we give people!
01. PROMOTE IN YOUR BLOG POSTS AND OTHER CONTENT
Links to products and freebies can be easily added to existing or future content.
02. PROMOTE INSIDE PAID CONTENT AS RELATED RESOURCES
Links can be added inside your paid content, such as printables, courses, etc. Many affiliates teach strategy, and design templates are the perfect way to help them implement your plan.
03. PROMOTE ON SOCIAL MEDIA
You may use the graphics we provide to promote your affiliate links on social media platforms. You may also create your own graphics to promote on social media platforms, including Pinterest.
04. EMAIL MARKETING
Links can be added to your email sequences (so sales are on auto-pilot!) or added to your weekly newsletters. You may also run special affiliate promotions on your email list as well.
PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU MUST FOLLOW FTC GUIDELINES AT ALL TIMES WHEN SHARING SIMPLIFYING DIY DESIGN PRODUCTS. WE WILL REVOKE ACCESS TO OUR AFFILIATE PROGRAM IF GUIDELINES ARE NOT FOLLOWED.
We no longer require having purchased to promote our products but highly recommend being familiar with our templates and the quality. We want you to feel confident knowing that you're sharing a resource with your audience that you love and can stand behind!

This is our FULL Canva course! It'll teach you all the features and functions of Canva, how to use them, and how to implement them when designing things like social media graphics, printables, and more. Not only will this course teach Canva, but it also teaches graphic design principles and how to put everything you learn into use when designing from scratch OR with a template.

SPECIAL AFFILIATE PROMOTIONS
If you've made at least 20 affiliate sales and have an email list of at least 500 people, you can request to run a special promotion for your specific audience. We'll set up your own sales page with an urgency factor determined by us both.
You will be able to run this launch to your audience for a specific period of time just as you would your own launch.
JOINT VENTURE PROJECTS
If you have a product that you feel is a good fit to run a joint promotion with us, you can request to do so.
Please note that we must be given access to your product (even if it's temporary) in order to determine if it's a good fit for our audience. We do NOT share anything we don't believe in.
** PLEASE NOTE **
We do NOT run back-to-back promotions. Simplifying DIY Design typically runs one promotion per month. If asking us to participate in something we're required to share with our audience, your request may be denied or delayed due to our promotional schedule.

Kara's graphic design skills were a game changer for our blog. Her eye for colors, appreciation for details and an understanding of the blogging and marketing world made for eye catching graphics, increased exposure, professional messaging and increased revenue.
Rosemarie from The Busy Budgeter
When it comes to making graphics the hardest part for me is starting with a blank page. Kara’s templates are a life saver. They give you a starting point to jump off from. And then once I get started the ideas start flowing and I create beautiful products I could have only dreamed about.
