Why Become a Workationing Affiliate?
With so many digital nomads out there hocking everything from training sessions to retreats, you may wonder how we managed to break through the noise.
The reason is simple: unlike most digital nomad coaches, we’re bona fide digital marketing experts who funded our globe trotting lifestyle with our remote careers. (Kari even owns The Content Factory, a digital marketing agency with a dozen full-time remote employees.)
Being a Workationing Affiliate means always getting the best support in the business.
Not only does this mean that you can feel good about the Workationing products that you promote, but you’ll have both of us — and our combined 20+ years of marketing experience — in your corner every step of the way. From quality ad creative to carefully crafted copy, we’ll give you all the tools you need to be successful as an affiliate.
What You’ll Earn as an Affiliate Partner
Workationing Affiliates are paid out $50* for each sale that originates from their unique referral links. Referrals are tracked with a 90-day cookie. This means that if a customer who first comes to Workationing through one of your links purchases one of our products or services at any point in the following three months, you’ll get $50.
We may occasionally run special promotions or provide you with a promo code specifically for your audience so that you can offer them a discount. In this case, the additional savings extended to your audience won’t impact your payout — you’ll still get $50.
Payouts will occur 7 days after the sale is processed. If the customer requests a refund during those 7 days, the payout will be cancelled.
Note: The terms of this affiliate program are subject to change at the full discretion of Workationing, B.V. Affiliates will be notified via email immediately about any changes to the program terms.
*While the majority of our products payout at $50, some lower ticket value items have a lower payout. See the Digital Marketing Training Products section below for pricing exceptions.
Workationing Affiliate Program Rules
By signing up for the Workationing affiliate program you are agreeing to the following terms. Failure to comply with these terms will result in immediate termination from the Workationing affiliate program.
You MUST disclose your affiliate relationship with Workationing in each and every social media post, blog post, marketing email, etc. in which you mention Workationing for the duration of your participation in the program.
This doesn’t just help keep the trust of your audience — it is required by law. Disclosure must be clear, conspicuous, and where the consumer would be most likely to look for that information. For social media posts, all posts must include #ad or #sponsored.
You will use all affiliate links in the manner in which they are intended. Any attempts to game the system through purchases/refunds will be dealt with immediately starting with termination from the program up to the potential for legal action.
You will represent the Workationing brand well. Upon signup, you’ll be provided with ad creative and promotional materials that you can use, however, you are granted some discretion to present our products and services in whatever way you think will best appeal to your audience.
With that said, we ask that you do your best to promote Workationing in a way that is professional, ethical, and in line with our brand values. Some profanity is allowed (just listen to the podcast), however, please do not post Workationing content on pages that promote pornography, hate speech, fraudulent business practices, or illegal activities.
Workationing, B.V. reserves the right to request that you remove any posts or promotional materials that could negatively impact the brand. Failure to comply with these requests, or posts that are in serious violation of this rule, will result in immediate termination from the program.
Workationing’s Digital Training Products
Workationing offers several different digital training programs for people who are looking to find remote work and transition to a life of location independence:
This four-part video training series takes you through the process of applying for remote work, from picking your remote career to getting enough remote work to quit your desk job. This program goes step-by-step through the exact method that Kari used to replace her income as an ad exec in less than three months, with tons of tools, guides, and actionable advice.
This training program contains everything that’s included in The Remote Work Starter Kit, plus everything that you need to grow and scale a remote business. From legal advice on setting up and protecting your business to landing major media coverage — and yes, we even cover generating passive income and affiliate sales. This program is like a remote digital marketing agency builder in a box.
Three 1-Hour Strategy Calls ($500)
For the folks who would like a little extra support as they transition to a life of location independence, we offer a package of three strategy calls. Whether it’s trouble-shooting the application process to get more responses or giving advice on how to scale a remote agency, it’s all on the table.
We also have digital training programs that are available through our sister company, The Content Factory. For people who are looking to transition to remote work, sometimes developing a remote skill that will allow them work from anywhere is the biggest barrier.
For these people, we offer digital marketing training courses through The Content Factory. TCF typically sells training packages to corporate clients for up to $9,000, but these self-guided video courses are being made available for a small fraction of that price:
This is the exact training manual that TCF uses to train its team of SEO experts. From the very basic of SEO to keyword research to content creation and backlink building, this training manual will teach you absolutely everything that you need to know to do SEO like a pro.
This comprehensive video training series takes all of the principles outlined in the SEO Pro Training Manual and does a deep-dive into each of them. With these step-by-step video trainings and tons of how-to guides, you’ll have everything you need to become a full-fledged SEO expert.
Three 1-Hour Strategy Calls ($500)
For people who would like a little extra support while going through the digital marketing training programs, these strategy calls are a great option. Get 3 hours with one of TCF’s dedicated SEO experts to ask questions, get feedback, troubleshoot problems, brainstorm strategy, or whatever else you need.
**Coming Soon** Comprehensive Social Media Management Video Training Series (Price TBD)
This training is an in-depth look at what it takes to grow your audience and generate tangible ROI across multiple social media channels including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Pinterest.
Note: As stated above, all of the videos and resources for The Remote Starter Kit are contained within Zero to Digital Nomad. Once someone signs up for TRWSK, they are sent a promo code which allows them to purchase Z2DN at a discount. However, if this happens it will not impact your payout. Provided that the second sale occurs in the 90-day window, you will still get $50 for the sale.
*Because the SEO Training Manual is priced at $29, the payout for this product is $10 instead of the usual $50. However, don’t sleep on this small but mighty guide! We find time and again that people who start with the training manual are much more likely to go to buy the full training program. If your audience is new to SEO, this is a great place to start.
How To Make (Even More) Affiliate Money
Do you know other affiliate marketers that this program might be a good fit for? For every affiliate marketer that you refer, you will be paid out 10% of their total sales for as long as you are both in the program.
In order to show that an affiliate marketer was referred by you, the person that you refer to the program must email [email protected] from the email that they used to sign up as an affiliate and let us know within 14 days of signing up.
Note: This applies only to affiliates that you refer directly, and not to any affiliates that they may in turn refer to the program.

Note: All payouts are through PayPal. To be a Workationing Affiliate, you must have a PayPal account.
How The Affiliate Program Works
Once you’ve signed up, you’ll have access to your unique affiliate links.
As you look through the links, you’ll notice that there are links, not just for the products themselves, but for blog posts, guides, free webinars, and other resources. These resources are all vital parts of our sales funnel and have been optimized for conversion.
For most people who buy a digital product online, there needs to be a sense of familiarity and trust with the brand before they are willing to make a purchase.
This combination of free and email-gated content that is included with the product sales page links are another tool in your toolkit. Cookies will still be assigned to the people you send to those links, so their future purchases (within the 90 day window) will all be credited to you.
We recommend promoting this full mix of content, starting with the free resources (blog posts).
Then, move to the email-gated resources (free webinars), and then finally introducing the paid courses once your audience has become more familiar with the Workationing and Content Factory brands. In short, your audience is more likely to convert if they’ve already gotten value from our content.
How you promote the content to your audience is left largely to your discretion.
However, we’ve provided marketing materials that you are free to swipe and use. Included in the Resources section of this document, you’ll find promotional images and language that you can copy-and-paste into your posts on social media, emails, blog posts, etc.
Note: When posting affiliate links on social media (particularly for the webinars and sales pages) please make sure that that image that’s being pulled is attractive and represents the brand well. If the image that is being automatically displayed isn’t great, please upload either one of the promotional images provided or a similar image that you create yourself.
Unfortunately, we don’t have control over which images are pulled from our third-party platforms for social media posts, so sometimes adjustments need to be made to ensure that the brand and the products are presented in the most appealing light.
Creating posts that are professional and attractive will also help you to increase your conversions. Just look at this example of a social media post that pulls a bad image:
And now look at this post with a custom image:
See what we mean?
Getting Additional Discounts For Your Audience
As mentioned above we may periodically run promotions on our products that will be extended to all of our affiliates. However, we can also make unique promo codes available to affiliates that have a particularly large and/or well-targeted audience. If you that sounds like you, and you’d like to apply to get a promo code, send an email to [email protected] with the following information:
- Your name (and your company’s name if applicable)
- Links to your website, relevant social media channels, podcasts, etc.
- A brief description of your audience including:
- Audience size
- Basic demographic makeup
- Why your audience is an especially good fit for the Workationing brand

We sometimes call this the “mini-course” because it is made up of the first 4 videos (and accompanying tools/downloads) of the Z2DN course, but this course is anything but tiny.

This course stands alone with everything you need to transition to a life of location independence.
