Just about everyone has heard about CBD these days. As a more widely-accepted pain reliever, CBD - short for “cannabidiol” - is a component derived from the hemp plant that provides incredible health benefits for its users. From treating muscle aches, cancer-related symptoms, anxiety, and more, CBD is becoming a wonderdrug with virtually no side effects. Best of all, most states have approved its usage as an analgesic, casting off the stigma of the cannabis plant’s undesirable effects resulting from THC - the psychoactive component that affects many users negatively.
With such a glowing profile, CBD is quickly becoming a highly-sought after solution for nearly every demographic. Consider the following statistics about the current and forecasted CBD market:
With these projections, it’s no wonder everyone wants to get into this industry in one way or another.
The challenge with CBD are the regulatory requirements that make entering the market quite prohibitive – from restrictive merchant processing that’s at nearly 2 points higher than traditional credit card processing to advertising restrictions imposed by Google and Facebook, it’s quite surprising to see how many new entrants there are to the scene.
The much more prudent and potentially lucrative path that is free of the headache of the current regulatory environment for CBD is affiliate marketing.
Affiliate marketing is just a fancy way of saying that you promote a brand via various channels and, if a sale is made, you earn a commission in return. It’s really that simple!
It is important to note that affiliate marketing is NOT a form of Network Marketing, Direct Sales or working on behalf of a shady MLM company. Instead, affiliate marketing is a type of performance-based marketing, where a business rewards their affiliates for each visitor or customer brought by the affiliate's own marketing efforts.
WillowCBD is a company that offers entrepreneurs the ability to hop on this trend and earn unprecedented profits. By referring customers to WillowCBD’s line of CBD products, affiliates earn a percentage and help spread the word about the beneficial aspects of regular CBD usage.
Affiliate marketing is beneficial for both entrepreneurs and product companies like WillowCBD, creating a larger brand awareness that draws in customers that would otherwise be inaccessible to companies alone. And as the audience grows, entrepreneurs gain repeat sales from repeat customers and people that are curious to try WillowCBD’s products.
The following are some of the benefits that affiliate marketers will enjoy by working with WillowCBD:

Once you’ve been approved to be part of the Willow CBD affiliate program, it is time to start promoting your links to provide potential customers with products.
The following are some of the most reliable channels to promote WillowCBD’s products:
Bear in mind that affiliate links can be promoted online AND in the real world. For example, affiliates can print mailers, business cards, and other printed materials to distribute to their clientele with affiliate-specific links through QR codes, discount codes, or the affiliate link. Events such as farmer’s markets or pop-up shops are also great ways to engage customers in person and earn commissions.
“How much can I earn?” is a common question among those looking to earn money through affiliate marketing.
Let’s be concise and direct: There are no limits to how much you can earn from CBD affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketing is a great method for those who want an unlimited earning potential from products that they believe in. As an example, if you sell $200 worth of product, you can expect to receive $50. For customers that regularly use WillowCBD’s products, this can mean $600 annually! Again, there is no limit to your success!
