Earn commissions up to 30 days after sending your visitors to lynda.com

Did you know that you can earn commissions even if your visitors don’t sign up with us right away? Non-members who click through from your site to lynda.com have a full 30 days to buy a membership—and earn commissions for you.

That means all you have to do is introduce your site visitors to lynda.com and encourage them to go check it out. If they don’t sign up, we’ll do our best to remind them over the next month why a lynda.com membership is an easy, convenient, and affordable way to meet personal and professional goals. If they buy a membership a week or even a month after visiting, you still get the commission!

Here are a few ways to drive traffic to lynda.com:

Videos: Choose a course that your site visitors would be interested in and embed videos from that course directly on your site. This is a great way to give your visitors an idea of what’s covered in the course and to show them the quality of our training.

Banners: The Partners site offers more than 450 banners in lots of sizes. Use the “lynda.com promotion” banners to target a more general audience, or choose one on a specific software or subject that appeals to your audience.

Text links: Refer your site visitors to any course or subject page on lynda.com by creating custom text links with the Custom Text Link Generator.

Combat ad fatigue to earn more in commissions

Learn how to combat ad fatigue to drive more traffic to lynda.com—resulting in more sales and commissions for you!

What is ad fatigue?

Ad fatigue occurs when your ad’s target audience sees your ad so many times they stop looking at it—and your click–through rate drops.

How do you prevent it?

Combat ad fatigue by simply swapping out the banners on your website at least once per month.

The Partners site offers more than 450 banners in all different sizes. Use the “lynda.com promotion” banners to target a more general audience, or choose one on a specific software or subject that appeals to your site visitors.

Earn a commission on gift memberships

Did you know that as a lynda.com Partner, you earn 10 percent on gift memberships purchased through your banners and links?

Encourage your site visitors to give the no-wrap, no-ship gift of learning to their friends, family, and colleagues by posting our gift membership banners on your site or in your newsletters. When someone clicks through your banner to our Give the gift of learning page and purchases a gift membership, you’ll earn a 10 percent commission. Find these banners by filtering for gift memberships on the choose banners page of the Partners site.

You can also add related text links to your site, incorporate them into blog posts, publish them via Facebook or Twitter, and add them to your newsletters. Get the text link by filtering for gift memberships on the get text links page of the Partners site.
