    Commissions are paid one time per referral. If any affiliate has ever earned for referring a member there will be no other compensation issued for that member regardless of changes in that member’s affiliation or enrollment status.

  • Do I need to have experience coaching, a back ground in nutrition or be a chef to be a successful Affiliate?

    No, just share your personal story and how PD-Ed helped you apply a plant based diet successfully. Your personal story and experience is all you need to help guide others to PD-Ed. Offering your understanding, support and sharing a few of your favorite tricks to make this lifestyle easier is all it takes. Do not give medical advice. If someone is ill always recommend they seek immediate medical care. If a referral asks medical questions remind them you are not a medical professional. Your job as an affiliate is to encourage others and assist them to make the application of a Protective Diet successful, manageable, and sustainable.

  • Will Protective Diet help me develop my affiliate business?

    Yes, we have developed a training course to guide you along the way. Learn ways to grow your affiliate business and expand your reach with an interactive class exclusively for Premium Members. We will teach you the ins and outs of being an effective affiliate, presenting to a crowd and expanding your reach. You will learn how to inspire others without being a sales person. We will share how to successfully build your business. This class will inspire you to encourage others and apply proven strategies to grow financially with Protective Diet. We will teach you how to earn while promoting a diet and lifestyle for optimal human health, the environment and all its wonderful creatures.

  • Must I have a website or blog to be an Affiliate?

    No, websites are not required to grow your referral business. It is an advantage to have a health based website or lifestyle blog about your transition, coaching services or related business. You may post the Protective Diet link buttons or banners we provide. They contain your personal encoded link. This will send your referrals straight to crediting you for enrollment, if they chose to enroll.

  • Can I send out email newsletters to my following with the enrollment buttons embedded?

    Yes you may send newsletters or emails out, as long as they do not use Protective Diet’s name, logo, PD-Ed or anything associated with Protective Diet in the title. They should contain valuable content not spam. Protective Diet is offering students an opportunity to inspire and earn. Let’s keep PD informative rather than annoying.

  • What is the best way to promote the value of a Premium Membership so I can start earning?

    Start off sharing your personal story, food photos or before and now pictures. Inspire people with your personal photos and your links to free recipes from These links are embedded giving you credit for referrals. Share your links in public facebook groups outside Protective Diet Living, on your personal page or in Protective Diet Style where you have a larger public reach. Do you follow any health or recipe blogs? Post recipe links on the blogs relating to the subject of the blog post. Remember to be helpful and answer questions. It is important to build an honest reputation from your personal experience and your success with PD-Ed. If anyone upgrades to a Premium Membership using your link the referral is yours. If they sign up for access to free recipes and chose to enroll years later the referral will be registered as yours. A good start is to encourage people to sign up for a Free Membership using your link. If the time comes that they decide to enroll it will be your referral.

  • Can I hold a talk at the library, community center, yoga studio or church?

    Yes, lead with your story and gain the crowds interest. Share how you changed your life and health path. Pass out a before and now photo into the crowd. This way you will be viewed as a master and expert. If people can relate to your story they will want you to guide them. You don’t need to teach them, just inspire them to enroll and I will do the work, while you collect the paycheck.

  • Can I post fliers or create post cards?

    You may create printed marketing material for your business or special event presentation. It can include your business name, your name or affiliate link. The use of Protective Diet’s logo or name is not permitted. Personalized affiliate business cards are available to order for your convenience.

  • Can I list my business in the phone book, in a newspaper or online ad?

    Yes, but you must identify yourself or your business in the listing with your business name as a Independent Protective Diet Affiliate.

  • Can I send out automatic unsolicited mass communications. This includes emails, post mail, telemarketing, text or social media messages?

    No, it is illegal in some countries and an annoyance to everyone.

  • What if my referral didn’t use my link? Can it be adjusted?

    No. Referral credit cannot be adjusted by Protective Diet. This is the only responsibility required to earn as a Protective Diet affiliate.

  • What’s the catch?

    There is no catch! This is a way for you to earn and encourage people to reach optimal health. We have designed the affiliate program to compensate those who are excited to share their personal experience and how PD-Ed supported them. There’s no small print with a catch. Just as long as you are an affiliate you will be paid $29.97 for every premium member you refer. Our goal is to make Premium Memberships free for everyone and promote an opportunity for experienced people who are a walking billboard of what Nutritional Intervention with a Protective Diet can do.

    Hi Julie and Jerry, I was just looking at the little graft above and noticed that I had eight people I guess that wanted to sign up but they were rejected. What qualifies a rejection? Just curious. I have no clue who they are so that part doesn’t matter. Just trying to get a better understanding of how it works.

    Hi, can you explain the graph a little? Wondering at what point it shows someone with free membership verses when they are actually paid and you will get credit? Thanks!!

    • posted by Julie Marie on March 31, 2016

      The graph will show a dollar amount in $29.97 increments totaling the amount based on how many payed referrals we owe you for at the end of the month.

    I signed up due to Rachel Fender, din’t know about the referral program how can she get the credit since I already signed up?

    • posted by Julie Marie on March 31, 2016

      In order for an affiliate to get credit for a referral their one and only responsibility is to offer and instruct you to use their link to initially set up your account. If Rachel didn’t do this or you didn’t use her link she is not associated with your account.

    I recently sent someone my affiliate link to sign up. They signed up but I am not receiving credit for this. What do I do?

  5. posted by Diane Richardson on September 2, 2015

    Jerry, Can I move the box (Hits, Visit, Accepted, etc) so I can see if I had any visitors yesterday. Just curious.

    Dr Carol Mccalment referred me – can she get the credit?

    • posted by Julie Marie on July 10, 2015

      If you used Carol’s affiliate link to create your membership she will be credited

    I came to the site from a comment a member made on another site. Can she get credit now?

  8. posted by Dorothy on March 17, 2015

    When someone signs up using our link do we get to know who they are?

    • posted by Julie Marie on April 5, 2015

      If they sign up just using your link from a post you made you won’t know who they are. You will receive recurring payments as long as they are enrolled.

    Chef AJ may not be an affiliate, but thought you should know of the good exposure that she has given you and that is how I heard of you!

  11. posted by KaSaundra Rogers on February 11, 2015

    good morning I see earnings but I never received them? I may be confused to how it works? Does it go the pay pal account? Also do you have to have your bank account set up on pay pal to receive payment? I only have my Visa check card set up?

    • posted by Julie Marie on February 15, 2015

      It is directly deposited to your pay pal account you have listed with the affiliate program.

    Jerry is there any way we can get printouts of our monthy graphs? Would I be able to get a copy or print out of January’s chart? Would like to keep track. Thanks. 🙂

    I’m also wondering the same as Penny. What is a hit vs. visit?

  14. posted by Penny on January 14, 2015

    What is the difference between a ‘hit’ and a ‘visit’?

    • posted by Jerry Christensen on June 14, 2015

      A visit is when someone new visits the site. A hit is the number of pages they go to while on the site.

    Can I change my affiliate ID to something easier to share that includes my name? If so, how pls. I tried the “click here”, but it’s not working. Tks

    • posted by Julie Marie on December 29, 2014

      The drop down is working, I would try clicking on it again. The affiliate ID is not changeable.

  16. posted by KaSaundra Rogers on December 3, 2014

    I have a question I was not an affiliate when a person I referred joined the site. Is it to late to receive credit from this point forward?

    • posted by Jerry Christensen on December 3, 2014

      Hi Kasaundra,

      It is not too late, however it is a rather complex process. The steps are covered in the frequently asked asked questions drop down at the top of this page.

    I don’t have a website yet

    • posted by Julie Marie on October 22, 2014

      You don’t need a website to earn as an affiliate. All you have to do is sign up and share your link with others (could be on facebook, linkedin, twitter, email etc). You are compensated $9.99 per month for every premium membership you refer. Review the “Click Here to Learn About the Affiliate Program” link above for all the details.
