Massive now has an affiliate option, where any Consortium member who helps recruit new writers will get a cut of their training fee. Our main goal is to expand our pool of writers and community members by adding great scientists to the Consortium; we also want to make sure that everyone is compensated for spreading the word about Massive.
Here's how it works:
- You join Tapfiliate. You'll get a special link to the Consortium sign up page with a "ref" tag at the end - that tag is connected to your Tapfiliate account. Joining Tapfiliate is free.
- You share your link with friends, put it on your website, or (ideally) send it to people who would be great Massive contributors!
- A friend joins the Consortium using your special link and pays the $10 training fee.
- You get a commission for each person who joins, currently set at $2 as of June 2020.
Q: Are the any restrictions on who can be an affiliate?
A: Current Massive staff, part-time or full-time, can't be affiliates. Everyone else, including former staff, is welcome to be an affiliate.
Q: Should I disclose that I get a commission?
A: That's up to you! You're not required to share that or hide it.
Q: Is this an MLM?
A: No! You don't get a commission for your recruits' recruits, and there's no incentive for you to get other people to spend money.
