Special Offers on Soaps

Special Offers on Soaps

From time to time we may offer discounts on our soaps. Generally because our prices are pretty low in comparison to competitors and we already have a multibuy discount this will not be too often. However, we will partner with others to offer some awesome bundle deals. Find out all about our Special Offers on Soaps.

Why don’t you do Special Offers more Often ?

The truth is, I don’t make that much on soap anyway. Especially when I sell only one bar at a time and have to pay postage and packing. This is why the multibuy discount exists. It is more cost effective for me to post out multiple bars rather than a single bar each time. Multibuy discounts will automatically apply in the Shop

I prefer to do partner offers and bundle soaps with other items as sales of one single bar of soap just about cover the cost currently.

Can you do Armed Forces Discount ?

This may be something introduced further down the line over a certain minimum spend. Currently I would start to lose money if I offered any significant discounts.

What about NHS Discount ?

Same as above, This is something I will look into further down the line but in the current way the business operates our prices don’t leave a lot of room for discounts.

What are the current Special Offers & Discounts ?

Currently, some of our soaps are available at in bundles with clothing.

When we sell at events the prices are a little less to compensate for the cost of post and packaging. You can see where we will be in the Events Calendar.

Why we prefer Affiliates to Paid Advertising

Why we prefer Affiliates to Paid Advertising

With paid advertising it is a very competitive area. A lot of the money is simply wasted and there is little reward. In building this business I have decided to go purely down the affiliate marketing route. This post is all about Why we prefer Affiliates to Paid Advertising.

What are the Advantages of Affiliate Programs ?

It is easy to assume that an Affiliate Program is simply cheaper than Paid Advertising. It is but this is not all about money. When we use Affiliates there is an inherent level of trust between the advertiser and the potential customer. We also reach a greater audience and get seen in markets wider than if we pay for a specific set of keywords in Google. In addition we pay enthusiasts and content creators rather than one large corporation. Affiliates can add their own level of creativity and appeal to a wider audience.

  • More cost effective than paid advertising.
  • Helping Real people to fund their Hobbies.
  • Greater Reach.
  • Larger variation of advertising.
  • Honest reviews and opinions.
  • Help upcoming Athletes gain experience of marketing.
  • Make the effects of Social Media more visible.

What are the Advantages for Affiliates ?

Our Affiliates will earn a percentage of all sales generated through the links they publish.

You want more ? OK… The best performing Affiliates each year will be rewarded for all their hard work. In addition we will give out samples and pre-release products to some of our Affiliates. There will be a discount scheme coming. You also get to smell nice.

Being an Affiliate can be a very easy way to earn money. If you already have a following on Social Media then this could be a very easy way to generate some extra income. There is also no financial outlay, no minimum requirements and no commitment to carry on in the event you decide this is not for you. However, you could generate a very good passive income and fund what you love doing most.

What is wrong with Paid Advertising ?

The problem I found with paid advertising is that there is usually little reward for a large outlay. It is very difficult to break even, sometimes you even lose money. Advertising is not as trustworthy as a recommendation from a real person too.

Paid Advertising does work for some people but personally, I find you have to throw a lot of money at it. I would rather give this money to real people and support others. Furthermore without a huge advertising I can keep prices for consumers fairly low which benefits everybody. I have been down the route of paid advertising with my main website and found benefits to be very minimal.

In summary the biggest reason why we prefer Affiliates to Paid Advertising is to give back to real people rather than to hand lots of money to a company.

Becoming an Affiliate

Becoming an Affiliate

Early on I decided the best way to promote this venture was to give back to the enthusiasts. This is why there is an affiliate program. Why not support the people who love adventures by paying for marketing ? This is all about Becoming an Affiliate.

Why would I want to become an Affiliate ?

If you love what you do and want to earn an extra bit of money to support you in doing what you do then this is an ideal opportunity for you. You will earn a percentage of every sale made through your own links. You can monitor how much you make through the dashboard on this website and see how much you can earn. It is free to sign up and there are no minimum requirements for number of posts/type of posts. You just do you.

Earning money with no strings attached is a rare opportunity. You will get back as much as you put into this. It will help to already have a huge following on social media but this is not a requirement. It really is as simple as spreading your referral link around and making some money from all the sales you generate.

OK, What do I need to do ?

You simply have to sign up for an account on this website. Generate an Affiliate link on the dashboard. Send it to friends, family, followers and earn a portion of all the purchases they make.

There is no need to post updates on a schedule, do a minimum amount of work or deal with posting/packing/stocking.

Important Links:

What If I sell the most in a year ?

If you perform well we will give extra rewards, If you are the best there is definitely a bonus/prize to be earned which will be determined by overall sales.

Some of the best performing affiliates will be selected to receive samples ahead of launch and other freebies. In addition we are looking towards moving some of the best affiliates over to where you can also earn money by promoting our range of sustainable clothing.
