You have a complementary business and would like to make money from directing people to a trusted resource that fits your clients or audience needs. For example, you’re a career coach or you run a podcast about living and working remotely.
You are a current DNK student or alumni who believes strongly in our products and how they have helped you and can help others. Some of our most successful affiliates are those who have direct experience working with us and share this with their network.
Easy, Breezy Sharing
We have really easy, no-brainer options for you to share with your audience. Most notably, our famous 5 Day VA Challenge which is totally free. We run this every 2-4 months (so you can promote it anytime) and take people through a comprehensive free training to determine their suitability to a career in virtual assistance. On completion, we invite these people to enroll in our full paid programs, meaning you simply send people to our free training (which in itself is a game-changer for many) and then we do the hard work of turning those people into full academy members to support their career long-term. You get paid when we get paid – cool right?
Our signature program The Virtual Excellence Academy is your bread and butter as an affiliate, and we only open enrollment following a round of our free 5 Day VA. Simple! Any upgrades or add-ons that a new student purchases will also be taken account for in your commissions!

We email affiliates before launches with important dates and also inform you if we have further products added to our referral system that you may be interested in promoting too.
Do you have any promotional creatives or copy I can use?
Yes. We have plug and play email templates we send you in the lead up to every launch, along with graphic templates too.
