Frequently Asked Questions (and Answers)
Aimee is free! Aimee will never charge you to use our service. There's nothing to buy and no subscription fees - we are 100% free for our users. You also never need to buy anything from our brand partners. There are no fees or charges ever. You simply find things you already know and like on our brand partner websites and send people to those websites. When someone buys, you earn!
First you sign up. Once you're a member you share promo links with your follower - links to products on our partner brands' websites.
If anyone follows your links and buys anything from that website, you get paid a commission - usually around 9% of the purchase price!
You can earn money two ways:
#1: Promote our brands
Find a product you like from an Aimee brand. Get your special Aimee link to that product (we call it a "promo") and insert it into your social media posts. When someone follows that link and buys that product or anything else from a brand website, you earn a commission - usually around 9%!
#2: Get other influencers to join Aimee
When an influencer signs up for Aimee using your referral code, you both earn $5. You also earn a percentage of that influencer's sales! You earn from your referrals but you don't take away from their earnings! See our Terms of Service for more details!
Kind of! Aimee is "Affiliate Marketing 2.0" - and we're open to everyone. There are no approvals. You choose what brands and what products you like and want to promote. And we pay you much more than traditional affiliate programs do. For example, Amazon's affiliate programs (if you have enough followers to be accepted) only pays between 1% and 3%. Aimee pays 9% or even more!
Aimee allows anyone to join from anywhere. We are an American corporation based in New York City, so we're only familiar with United States laws, but as long as you don't break your local laws, and as long as you understand we only pay our members via PayPal (there are no exceptions to this rule ever) and so you must have a legitimate PayPal account, we're happy to accept members from anywhere!
Unlike traditional affiliate marketing programs, you do not need to get pre-approval in order to become an Aimee influencer.
Working with Promos
A promo (short for promotion) is a special link you create with Aimee that leads to a product you are promoting to your followers on social media. When anyone follows this promo link in your social media posts, they will be taken to the product page to buy that item. And if that item (or any other item from the Brand's website) is purchased, you get paid a referral fee!
If you are not a member, please sign up. If you are a member, please log in. When logged in, click on the Admin link in the top navigation. This will take you to your Promos list. Click the Create New Promo button.
From here you can easily create a promo:
- Choose the brand you want to promote
- Find a product you want to promote on the brand website
- Paste the URL of the product you choose on the Create New Promo page
- Optionally a photo of you with that product or a photo of that product
- Optionally give your promo a title
That's it. After doing that you'll be presented with a sharable promo link that you can post all over your social media! When anyone follows that link and buys anything from that brand, you get paid.
For up to 30 days after someone follows a promo link of yours, if they return to the website you can still earn commission on any purchases. That 30-day period is the purchase window. The size of the window varies by brand so please read the brand details when making a promo. Also please see our Terms of Service for more information.
As many as you want! There is no limit to the number of Promos you can create and share! And promos do not expire - they last as long as the brand continues to sell the product you are promoting on the page you link to!
As many as you want! All of our brands are excited to work with all of our members!
We have hundreds of brands working with us and we add new brands every week. See our full brands list.
Aimee promos are not paid compensation. You are not being paid to post the links. You do get paid if someone follows your links, but we do not believe this requires you to post text such as "paid partnership with [brand name]" or "promotion". But we encourage you to speak with legal counsel yourself as we are not your lawyers!
Your Aimee Profile
Your profile is a convenient list of all of your social media handles and usernames with links to your profiles on those social media platforms. It's an easy to maintain list of where you are active on the internet so your followers can easily find you on every platform. You do not need to have a profile in order to use Aimee Promos but we think it's a useful tool!
From here you can easily edit your profile by clicking the yellow Edit button. Everything on your profile (including having a profile) is optional.
Feel free to add a profile photo, input your various social media usernames, etc.
And feel free to share your profile if you wish. It's free and always will be!
We are building the ability to style your profile and promo pages! Stay tuned - we'll have it done soon!

Referrals and RevSharing
Because you and every person you refer will both earn $5 the first time the referred person earns enough to cash out an eligible Aimee balance.
Also because you earn a share of the revenue that anyone you refer makes, without taking anything from them! This RevShare continues as long as you are an Aimee member! See our Terms of Service for more details!
RevSharing is amazing, and something only Aimee does! Here's how it works: when you refer an influencer (call her "Jill") to Aimee, and Jill joins Aimee using your referral code, then Aimee will pay you a small percentage of every sale Jill makes. And if you refer another influencer (call him "Jack") and Jack signs up using your referral code, then Aimee will also pay you for every sale Jack makes!
This RevShare can quickly add up to huge earnings! If you refer 100 people, you'll earn a revenue on each of those 100 peoples' sales! See our Terms of Service for more details!
Your referral code is clearly shown at the top of your Promos page, your profile page, your Account page in your Admin area!
Aimee pays all our members exclusively via PayPal. There are no other payment options available.
Any time you have earned more than $50 (USD) in revenue you may request that we transfer your Aimee earnings to your PayPal account. This transfer takes a few days.
Different brand partners pay different rates, but you will usually be paid 9% of the item price for all items purchased via your Aimee Promo Links. Please see each brand's rules when you create a promo as the amounts can vary.
We'll also pay you a 0.5% of the item price for all items purchased via the Aimee Promo Links of anyone who signs up for Aimee using your referral code. This does not reduce their 9% commission either. So if you refer 10 people and they each refer 10 people, you'll earn a portion of those 110 peoples' sales!
We track every click on every promo (you'll see the click count on every promo in your Admin area when you are logged in). Our partner Rakuten tracks every click as well. And each brand you promote tracks any sales associated with your promo. So you don't have to worry about doing any work!
Unlike some other influencer talent agencies, Aimee does not take a fee or commission from our influencers. Our agency fee comes from brands, not influencers.
