Affiliate Policy

The following rules and guidelines are in place to create a win-win situation
to ensure that our company’s name is protected and you are treated fairly.

Affiliate Process

Our basic affiliate program is open to anyone at a 25% commission. 
Our premium affiliate program and 50% commission rate is available only to Sara Michaels' private clients and current members of Style-It-Yourself or What the Tech?

Style-It-Yourself is a course and one-time purchase 

What The Tech?! is a recurring membership offered monthly and annually

If, at any time, your membership is downgraded or cancelled,

your commissions will be reduced to the regular 25% commission rate. 

Once you are a registered Sara Michaels affiliate, you will receive an affiliate link.

Affiliate sales that you make are tracked and recorded by Teachable.


You will receive an email when you have made a sale through your affiliate link.

You will receive a 25% commission or 50% commission (depending on your affiliate status) for all eligible affiliate sales generated from your affiliate link.


If a product is returned or refunded, the affiliate will not be eligible for a payout on the transaction.

Affiliates will be paid out once a month via Teachable.


All sales are held for 30 days before a commission is paid.


All affiliates are responsible for providing their account information for payout to receive payment (you can do this in your affiliate dashboard).
