WP Engine have recently announced two new FREE plugins that you can promote and earn $200 if those you refer upgrade to the Genesis Pro subscription which includes pro versions of both plugins.
Genesis Blocks provides advanced Gutenberg features including a beautiful library of pre designed and optimised blocks, sections of blocks, and entire pages of block based demo content to help you build websites faster!
Genesis Custom Blocks allows WordPress developers to create 100% custom Gutenberg blocks without needing to learn React! The standard WordPress developer skill-set is all the user needs. Genesis Custom Blocks help you build your own unique vision with the WordPress block editor!
How do you earn commission on free plugins?
Use your affiliate link to direct visitors to the Genesis Blocks and Genesis Custom Blocks product pages. If someone you refer through upgrades to the pro versions available in the Genesis Pro subscription, you’ll earn a $200 commission after the customer’s first 62 days of service.
Your cookie will last 180 days, so those you refer will have plenty of time to explore the free versions of those plugins and decide if upgrading to pro is the right choice for them.
What is the best way to promote free plugins?
Here are just a few ideas:
- Write a blog post or produce video content walking through the functionality of Genesis Blocks and/or Genesis Custom Blocks. Consider taking advantage of the rise in popularity of Gutenberg with examples of a user-friendly way to create pages and posts.
- Update existing content you already have around building with WordPress or Gutenberg to include references to Genesis Blocks and Genesis Custom Blocks.
- WP Engine have confirmed affiliates are free to contact them for copies of the two plugins for use in promotional posts.
- If you’re promoting the Genesis Pro subscription don’t forget you can use the coupon code “blockslaunch” to offer a 20% discount on the first year of Genesis Pro to your audience.
- Maximise your reach by referring to WP Engine plans in your Genesis Blocks / Custom Blocks promotions since hosting and site building often go hand in hand. Don’t forget your ongoing WP Engine – Affiliate Offer! of three months free on annual shared plans (coupon code WPE3FREE).
