We currently have a 25% conversion rate for this Kickstarter. That means that for every 1,000 people who click through to our Kickstarter, 25% of them (250 people) contribute to the Kickstarter.

The average pledge is currently $30.52, for a total of $7,630 per 1,000 people who visit the Kickstarter. Last year, many people raised their pledges at the end of the Kickstarter, when many stretch goals were being achieved.

The average pledge by the end of last year’s Kickstarter was $55.63. If the average pledge this year turns out to be similar, that means that for every 1,000 people who visit our Kickstarter, we get $13,907. The 25% kickback affiliate fee at that level would total $3,476.75.

send 1000 people to the kickstarter and pocket more than $3000.

Forgive me for being a dummy about this, but I'm not sure how to use my affiliate number that I've already got set up.  I see on the 'permies affiliate management' page that there's a list of products I can get a link for to share with others, but I don't see the Kickstarter greenhouse there.  But I see at the top of this page that there is a kickback for it.  

So are these two different things?  If I can't get a link through my already set up affiliate dashboard, could I get a link here, please?

Yup, you need a whole different link.  Here is the link for the kickstarter:

I have no idea idea what that means.

Are you saying that you currently do not have a link and that you would like a link?

Is there a way to tell if people used your link or do you find out when the kickstarter is over?

I’d like a link too, even if it’s just a plain link...

Check this post.  I think Jennifer is planning on doing that sort of thing fairly regularly.

I am just wondering is there a way to create a personalized ref link, with my name at the end, for example?

Yury, I sent you something on the first day of the kickstarter:

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/paulwheaton/greenhouse-1?ref=ewnirp

Do you want another one?

As for being able to make one that says "ref=yury" instead of "ref=ewnirp" - nope.  Kickstarter does not offer that as an option.

Paul and I have decided to offer some perks for the kickback program!

We have the following five things available for the top five kickback folks in addition to the kickback fees paid:

42 seeds of Sepp Holzer grain (we got it established here at Wheaton Labs with only 42 grains!) (you must be located in the US)
$50 in bitcoin
A huckleberry pie (you must be located in the US)
A gift code for the PDC & ATC footage
A "message in a bottle" with lots of podcasts and videos (you must be located in the US)

The idea is that the top referrer gets to pick the one they want, the person in second place picks from the remaining four, and so forth.

I'll be updating this thread again after lunch so you'll see where everyone stands!

   - in your posts

   - in your signature

   - with tagging on fb and other social media

   - more stuff i can't think of right now
