- Teammates Program
What is the 10 Hours or Less™ Teammates Program?
It’s our affiliate marketing program that provides Social Media Influencers (SMIs):
- A personalized discount code for their followers to regularly receive 20% off 10 Hours or Less™ patterns
- A $1 commission for every pattern purchased with the discount code
- A 20% bonus commission on total pattern sales of 100+ in any calendar quarter
- Free 10 Hours or Less™ patterns to support their social marketing efforts
How does it work?
Once approved, the SMI will receive a personalized discount code to share with followers. This reusable code will provide 20% off all regular-priced 10 Hours or Less™ patterns purchased on www.10HoursorLess.com and on Ravelry.
Within 30 days of the end of each calendar quarter, the SMI will receive a sales report listing all patterns purchased with their code as well as the total commission earned for the quarter. The sales commission will then be electronically deposited into their PayPal account (required) via PayPal Mass Pay without a fee.
How do I qualify as an SMI?
You must oversee a brand that has 500+ followers on at least one of the following:
- Facebook page or group
- Instagram page
- Ravelry group
- YouTube channel
I am one of two (or a team of) moderators whose social media qualifies as an SMI. Can I still be a 10 Hours or Less™ Teammate?
With the approval of all stakeholders, you definitely can. However, a single person must be designated to receive communications, sales reports and payments on behalf of the group.
As a Teammate, I’d like to feature a particular 10 Hours or Less™ pattern on my social media - or maybe even do a Crochet-Along/Knit-Along. Must I buy the pattern myself?
Absolutely not! We are happy to provide our Teammates with a free courtesy copy of any pattern they’d like to showcase on social media. Teammates are also free to use our copyrighted photos in their marketing efforts as well.
How many Teammates will you be accepting?
For the initial roll-out, we plan to limit our Teammates to a dozen or so. Then, we hope to add promising new influencers on a rolling basis. We will also review sales performance and remove the lowest-performing 20% from the program on an annual basis.
