As many of you will know, at one time I wrote a number of courses for the electronic publishing house WCCL. Probably the best known of these is Write Any Book in Under 28 Days (also known as The Nick Daws Course).
I stopped working as a writer for WCCL a few years ago, and the company has since been taken over at least twice. The current owners are a company called Kaleidoscope Global. They are still selling my courses (along with many others). They are within their rights to do so, as WCCL purchased all rights in them a number of years ago. I remain an affiliate for the company, as basically it would be mad for me not to.
I know that a number of you are also affiliates of WCCL, which enables you to earn substantial profits (typically 50%) by marketing the company’s courses and other products. So I wanted to draw your attention today to the fact that the old affiliate platform is closing down and a new one has been launched at http://affiliates.kaleidoscopeglobal.com/.
I have been in touch with Kaleidoscope and they have told me that affiliate links created using the old platform at selfdevelopment.net will not go on working for much longer. So if you have banners or text links to any WCCL products containing your affiliate code, it’s essential to register on the new Kaleidoscope Global platform and get new links there.
If you are an active affiliate you should have received an email about this from the company a few weeks ago, but if not you can contact their affiliate manager via the website.
If you are not yet an affiliate and wish to join the program, you can apply via the Kaleidoscope Global website. The company is planning to launch a range of new products in the coming months, so there should be plenty to promote.
You can also, of course, promote any of their hundreds of older products (including my courses), but be aware that some of these have been on the market for ten years or more and I don’t know when they were last updated. Of my own courses, I am only actively promoting Write Any Book in Under 28 Days and Essential English for Authors currently, as these are basically evergreen titles. You can see a sample banner for Essential English for Authors at the foot of this post.
