Myths about becoming a model


1.  What is an Affiliate Program?  How does it work?

An affiliate program is a revenue sharing program where the affiliate (that’s you!) drives traffic to a merchant’s web site (that’s us!) in exchange for referral commissions. When a visitor to your site clicks on the affiliate link to our site and completes a purchase, you get a commission on every item they buy!

We have developed our own customized software that includes automatic tracking, report, as well as prompt monthly payments.  Once you sign up, you can log in at any time to get our banners and links, find out about commissions earned and even learn about how many impressions each of your links has received.

2.  How do I get started?

  • Step 1: Sign up!
  • Step 2: Once signed up, you will receive a ‘Welcome Email’ with all information, including your unique referral code, as well as graphics to use.
  • Step 3: Share your unique referral code with your friends, family, and following.  Start developing a list of individuals that would be perfect to partner with to sign up as an affiliate through your unique referral link.
  • Step 4: Collect your commissions, and be one happy person.

4. Who can participate?

Just about anybody who has a love for the fashion/modeling industry, has model contacts, as well as similar beliefs.  Our main goal is to build an environment that sets a strong foundation for models to not only learn about the model industry, but also help propel their career through learning and networking.

5. Does it cost anything to participate?

No! As long as you are an active affiliate, all you need to do is keep linking and collect your commissions.

6.  How are sales tracked?

Once your sign up, you will be given a unique affiliate referral code as well as custom-formatted links that will ensure that traffic coming from your site is properly tracked. We maintain a 180-day cookie, meaning that if a visitor clicks on a link from your site, you are credited with the sale as long as the visitor purchases within 180 days.

MODELPALOOZA automatically records all transactions through your unique referral link in real time, meaning that all impressions, links, and sales are tracked instantly. Within your MODELPALOOZA ‘Affiliate Dashboard’ you can easily view all reports and tracking resources you’ll need to see how you’re doing. You can use these reports to find out how you are performing and to optimize your methods for maximum sales.

6.  How much will I earn?  How and when do I get paid?

All new affiliates can earn commissions of up to 50% based on performance, with a cookie length of 180 days.

MODELPALOOZA pays affiliates monthly and when the commission balance is $100 or more. Please refer to the MODELPALOOZA Affiliate Agreement for more information.

7.  What is a parasite? What is your policy regarding parasites?

The term “parasite” refers to technology (including browser plug ins, helpers, popups, etc.) that intercepts and changes an affiliate’s link. This technology is also known as “unsolicited commercial software” and is often found in Adware and Spyware software. Parasite activity essentially “hijacks” the affiliates link and the affiliate commission gets redirected to the parasite, instead of the affiliate who rightfully earned it. This type of software is normally installed unknowingly, often without the end user’s consent. For an excellent description of parasite software, how it gets installed, and how to remove it, visit

We are committed to preventing any parasites from becoming part of our program. If we determine that any of our affiliates are parasites, they will immediately be inactivated and banned from the program. Please e-mail us if you suspect that one of our affiliates may be a parasite.
