Affiliate Guidelines

Welcome!

And Thank You for becoming an UrbanPhil Affiliate. We are glad to have you as an affiliated partner to grow and scale your business. Please use this page to learn what it means to be an UrbanPhil Affiliate and our Role to you as a Partner. These roles are further described in the Term and Conditions, but this is a quick checklist for you to reference as you settle in. 

Your Role as an Affiliate:

To be an affiliate is make UrbanPhil a part of you. Meaning that you show as much support for us as we show you. Being an Affiliate you are freely and regularly promoted on our social media pages. In turn, we ask that you do the same, this can be as simple as Hash Tagging or @ Tagging our pages/accounts on social media platforms.

Two Things are accomplished by doing this:

  • We are able to share audiences meaning more exposure for you to potential customers. UrbanPhil is now a marketplace which will bring in audiences from other Affiliates who may purchase from you, as your customers may purchase from other Affiliates. This allows for seamless sharing of our audiences and natural growth in sales, customer base, and repeat business. 
  • By Hash or @ Tagging UrbanPhil is notified of your current post, allowing us to re-share with our media following. Whether it is a current promotion, new product, sale, discount, etc, We won't know if you do not tell us. And an easy way of doing that is with #ShopUrbanPhil or @ShopUrbanPhil.

The UrbanPhil Logo and name is for use only by the business an sub-brands. As an affiliate you are allowed to post in the FB social media group to promote your products. You cannot advertise your product as an UrbanPhil product or post on behalf or assume the identity of UrbanPhil or sub-brands. 

UrbanPhil may add our logo or social media tag to promotional products, sales and other posts that may relate to the MarketPlace. In turn, you may market yourself as an UrbanPhil Affiliate and use the provided "Affiliate" Logo during events and on marketing material.

No more "DM me to Order". Part of our mission is to make entrepreneurs more professional. One way of doing that is by providing you a marketplace that you can call your own for free t sell your products. Build trust by offering a secure NON CASH APP, VINMO, FB PAY etc alternative. Once you have been accepted as an affiliate, all sales must go through the Marketplace,  personal website, or other platforms like Etsy, Ebay or Amazon etc. Since our role is to promote your products freely, if  discovered using "DMs" to take orders or sell products, while having them in the Marketplace will result in a warning first, followed by immediate affiliate termination.  This is to ensure and maintain the integrity and fairness of the Marketplace. 

General Do's and Don'ts:

  • Do - Hashtag or @ tag UrbanPhil / UrbanPhilMarketplace
