Thank you for your interest in being a MacroFactor affiliate! You can find the application form below, but first, two important bits of information about our affiliate program:
First, we are only interested in partnering with people who already use and like MacroFactor.
Our general philosophy around affiliate programs is that they are ethical and mutually beneficial when folks can receive compensation for recommending a product they’d already be comfortable recommending in the absence of any financial interest. We don’t want to partner with folks who are just interested in seeking out affiliate programs to join, regardless of whether or not they actually believe in the product they’re promoting.
Second, our affiliate program is primarily intended for athletes or content creators who intend to promote the app to their medium-to-large audience.
This is not intended to be a peer-to-peer referral program for folks who’d primarily like to receive a discount for recommending the app to their family or friends, nor is it primarily intended for fitness or nutrition coaches who’d like to recommend the app to a handful of clients. In an effort to build the best affiliate program for our partners, we settled on a system that’s not amenable to off-the-shelf software solutions (like those offered by ShareASale, ClickBank, or similar affiliate software), so managing each affiliate account requires hands-on effort from our team. For that reason, we unfortunately have to limit the number of partners we work with.
Roughly defining “medium-to-large audience”:
If you meet any of these criteria, fill out the form below, and you’re probably in:
- 10,000+ Instagram followers
- 5,000+ YouTube subscribers
- 5,000+ subscribers to an email newsletter
- 20,000+ TikTok followers
- 10,000+ monthly podcast downloads
We understand that audience size doesn’t scale 1:1 with engagement, but in our experience with the affiliate program thus far, affiliates with audiences exceeding these cutoffs have the potential to do quite well, while affiliates below these cutoffs tend to struggle. However, if you excel in some other domain that’s not easily measurable in terms of audience size, or you have a particularly engaged or rapidly growing audience, we’d still be happy to review your application. Ultimately, our goal isn’t to weed people out – our goal is to ensure that everyone we accept into the affiliate program is set up for success.
A final note for trainers and coaches
We have some exciting plans in store for you. We can’t share details yet, but it will suit your needs (and your clients’ needs) much better than the affiliate program would. Fill out this form, and you’ll be the first to know the details of our plans for coaches, once there are details we can share.
A final note for people interested in a peer-to-peer referral program
We’re certainly interested in implementing a referral program, but the logistics are challenging for a number of reasons. The biggest issue is that we take privacy extremely seriously, and off-the-shelf software commonly used for implementing referral programs typically involves data collection exceeding the guarantees we’ve made to our users. If we do implement a referral program, folks in our Facebook group and subreddit will be the first to know.
