I'm Kara and design is my JAM!

I've been certified in graphic design for over 10 years and I’m a full time blogger that specializes in combining my knowledge of graphic design with online marketing to create better social media graphics, lead magnets, and digital products that are currently helping tens of thousands of bloggers grow their online businesses.  

Six months after launching Simplifying DIY Design I had replaced my full time income and in less than 2 years I had generated over six-figures in digital product sales alone. Since my very first product launch I was approached by bloggers of all sizes asking if I had an affiliate program.

Since then, I've had the amazing opportunities share my templates and design knowledge with many audiences. I've been invited to travel, speak virtually, guest appear in memberships and other online communities as well as podcasts.  

Templates are my JAM and my passion is to create design tools and systems that you can use to implement your way to success in your digital business! I look forward to working with you to share those designs with the audience you worked hard to build!

HOW DOES THE AFFILIATE PROGRAM WORK?

Our program is run 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 need to first click the buttons associated with the products that you want to promote. You will need to individually sign up for each one that 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 which 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 and they are locked for 1 year. This means that as long as your audience member does not click on another affiliates 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 will also get 40% of the order bump if it's purchased. This increases the overall cart value of each sale for you!

06. EXTRA OPPORTUNITIES

We allow affiliates to provide their own 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 the 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, if the quality isn't there it's unlikely they will purchase again. 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! Kara designs 100% of templates herself and is a certified graphic designer. This is never outsourced.

WAYS TO SHARE AS AN AFFILITE

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. A lot of affiliates teach strategy and design templates are the perfect way to help them implement your strategy.

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

You want RESULTS for your audience -- here's just some of the things people have said about Kara + her designs!

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.
