The BFD Affiliate Programme is a win-win opportunity for both the BFD and you to build a recurring revenue stream by promoting New Zealand’s only conservative media outlet.

How It Works

Many of you have email databases or your own websites or social media pages or Video channels. Our Affiliate Programme would benefit you or your organisation by delivering recurring monthly and annual revenue.

Our Goal

  1. To create recurring monthly and annual revenue for both you and the BFD


Affiliate marketing is a popular tactic to drive sales and generate significant online revenue.

Affiliate marketing can be used to promote and grow the membership of The BFD while at the same time providing revenue to like-minded people or groups that promote us.

In a nutshell Affiliate marketing is the process by which an affiliate earns a commission for marketing another organisation’s products or services. In this case, the commission is recurring as memberships provide monthly or annual recurring revenue.

You promote your favourite New Media site The BFD and in return, you will earn a percentage of the profit from each membership that we gain through your affiliate link. The sales are tracked via affiliate links from one website to another.

We give you an affiliate link when you sign up in our Affiliate Area which can be found at the top right of the home page.

If someone else signs up to a BFD subscription using that link, we will register them as your affiliated users and start paying you!

As readers become members of The BFD then you or your organisation would enjoy regular commission payments so long as the member maintains their Membership. 

You will be able to visit the Affiliate area to watch your progress.

This is a screenshot that shows me how much I personally have earned since I signed up as an affiliate back in March last year.

Why Would This Benefit You?

1. Passive Recurring Income. 

You or your organisation would receive money for marketing to your email database or promoting The BFD on your website, Social Media page or Video Channel.

This could be as simple as a logo with a subscribe button inserted into each email that you or your organisation sends out.

However, you choose to promote us you will need to embed your affiliate link. The link needs to take the person to our subscription page.

My personal affiliate id is 2 so the link I use is

If your Affiliate id number is 367 for example then the link you would use would be

2. Performance-Based Rewards.

Affiliate marketing is purely based on your performance. You’ll get from it what you put into it. Memberships start at $5 per month. There are $10, $25, $49, and $166 per month subscriptions. You or your organisation would receive a commission on each and every membership that comes from your link and you will keep receiving it until the person cancels their membership. If they sign up to an annual membership then you will get a nice little lump sum every year on the anniversary of their sign up.

3. Lifetime Commissions

When a customer clicks on your referral URL and signs up for a membership at our website, they’re instantly permanently linked to you or your organisation. If the member returns to say upgrade their membership then you or your organisation will receive an increased commission, even if they visit The BFD directly. A member can only be linked to one affiliate at a time.

If the customer makes any other guest purchase (logged out) their email address is used to look up the linked affiliate. If they are logged in their BFD user ID is used.

Additionally, if the member ever uses a different email address while purchasing (logged in) or changes their email address from their BFD profile, the new email address is stored with your affiliate profile. This ensures that if the customer ever makes a purchase while logged out, You or your organisation will still receive a commission on the sale.

What Would the Commission Rate Be?

We operate a tiered commission rate (assume 10,000 target with average membership of $10 per month):

  • 0 – 100 referrals = 10% commission rate = max $100
  • 101 – 500 referrals = 15% commission rate = max $750
  • 500 – 1000 referrals = 20% commission rate = max $1000
  • 1001+ referrals = 25% commission rate = $22,500

The BFD has invested in the software to handle this automatically, and you or your organisation would have access to the affiliate system at all times for audit purposes.

There is no financial commitment required by you or your organisation, just a commitment to promote The BFD for our mutual benefit.

It is a Win-Win proposition.
