Black Friday FREE SHIPPING Reminder

As announced yesterday, beginning tonight at midnight, we will offer two full days of free shipping for Black Friday! Please see the announcement HERE for the full details. Are you ready to announce this exciting special to your followers? Please review this checklist to make sure you have done everything to maximize your sales potential!

  • Make the announcement to your blog followers! There are varieties of ways to do this. An effective strategy is to write a new blog post announcing the special and provide all the details to your followers, including the image above.
  • If you don’t have a blog, you could mention the sale in a YouTube video and add all the details to the video description box.
  • Lastly, make the announcement on all your social media sites such as Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

With the holiday season finally here, now is the perfect opportunity to recommend products to your followers to purchase as gifts or for their personal wish lists. If they are thinking about purchasing any Sigma products, Black Friday is the perfect opportunity to complete their orders AND receive free shipping. A great idea for blog posts and YouTube videos is to recommend products you like personally and share the ones that would make great gifts. 

No matter which strategy you choose to implement, don’t forget the following details:

  • The exact dates and times the special will run Thursday, November 22 (12:00 AM Central Standard Time) until 12:00 AM CST Friday, November 23. If you live outside the CST time zone, make sure to convert the time to your location and let your followers know the proper time to order.
  • The code to enter at checkout (BF2012).
  • Free shipping promotion is valid for First Class shipping worldwide
  • Make sure to tell your followers only ONE code can be applied per order. Meaning you cannot use the free shipping code with the monthly discount code.
  • Lastly and the most important: Your AFFILIATE LINK! You will earn zero commission if your link is not displayed with the code.

The Sigma Affiliate Team wishes everyone lots of success on their November affiliate commissions and Happy Shopping!

Black Friday Announcement!

It’s that time of the year again—Black Friday Free Shipping! We wanted to inform our affiliates before anyone else on the FULL details of our Black Friday specials. This year we are making things even better by offering TWO full days of free shipping (both domestic and First Class International shipping)! The sale will begin at midnight (12AM Central Standard Time) on Thursday, November 22 and end at midnight (12AM Central Standard Time) on Friday, November 23. This gives you a whole 48 hours to place your orders! To redeem your free shipping, simply enter the code BF2012 at checkout. There is no minimum order, but only one discount code may be applied. You cannot use the monthly 10% off discount code with the free shipping so please keep this in mind when placing your orders. 

Our Black Friday special is one the best selling opportunities of the year for affiliates so make sure to advertise the free shipping code along with your affiliate link! We wanted to inform our affiliates a few days early so you can fully prepare your blog posts, YouTube videos, and update your blog with the image above. It is very important to get the word out to your followers since this special will only run for a limited amount of time. Also, make sure to compare any difference in time to your location. This will avoid confusion and missed opportunities to place an order.

How are you going to take advantage of this year’s Black Friday special?
