Thanks for your interest in becoming an affiliate for The Transfer Book! We recommend you bookmark this page now, as it’s hard to find otherwise (you can’t really search for it).

Briefly, what’s in it for you:

  • If you’re running a website with a college audience, we can pretty much guarantee many, many of the readers will be interested in transferring. You’ll be adding a lot of value for your audience. Nearly 50% of all college students in the US transfer before they graduate. Most of those are community college students, but about 1 in 4 students that start at a four year college transfer before graduating. The number of students transferring is growing faster than college enrollment in general.
  • The product is very high quality (co-written by a guest lecturer on transfer students at Columbia, both authors transferred themselves [to Dartmouth and Stanford], 360 pages total, real example stats, essays, super-low return rate, etc.), so your audience is in good hands.
  • We offer 50% commissions on a product that we sell for at least $37 (we test different prices throughout the year). We can detect who sent us a customer for up to six months from when the link was clicked.
  • We continually optimize our website with split-testing.

If you have any questions or suggestions or want to get some help from us setting things up, please email us at affiliates(AT) We want to be active partners, and we’re happy to help in anyway, whether it’s providing guest blogposts, banner ads (see the bottom of this page), making ourselves available for interviews, or any other creative idea you have in mind!

We’ve made getting affiliate links as easy as possible for you: signing up should only take about five minutes. If you know how this all works and know you want to join, follow this link to join our affiliate program on E-Junkie. To learn more about exactly how to do everything, read on!

Why The Transfer Book is Worth Promoting

The Transfer Book is for ambitious four-year college and community college students that want to transfer to really good schools. It has helped thousands of students already, but we think The Transfer Book can and should help even more students. Nearly 50% of all college students in the US transfer before they graduate. Most of those are community college students, but about 1 in 4 students that start at a four year college transfer before graduating. Despite these huge numbers, there’s very little information for them on the process out there.

What we’ve put together to meet the need is genuinely high quality: about 360 pages total, with real stats and student essays from top schools, plus over an hour and a half of audio. We transferred ourselves (to Dartmouth and Stanford) and Chris even guest lectures on transfer students for a Master’s-level class at Columbia University’s school of education.

Our reviews and media appearances speak to the quality of what we’ve made, and only 3% of customers ask for a refund. That number is absurdly low given that the return rate for most brick and mortar stores is around 9%, and it’s much easier to just send an email to ask for a refund than to take something back to the store.

Also, as if helping college students doesn’t motivate you enough, we offer 50% commission on all sales you make. That’s right, if anyone purchases The Transfer Book after getting to our site using your link, we’ll send you half the purchase price.

How to Get Your Affiliate Link

We run our affiliate program through E-Junkie (great system, horrible name). Follow these five simple steps to get set up in less than five minutes.

1. To get started, get an account at E-junkie by following this link, which should open in a new tab: Join our affiliate program! It’s free and easy.

2. Once you’ve signed up there, and made sure your Paypal email address is on file, click the link “Get Affiliate Code.”

3. Then click on the second button on the page that comes up, which is also called “Get Affiliate Code.”

5. That link was generated specifically for you and leads to The Transfer Book. Just take that link and direct people to our site. When anyone visits our site from that link and purchases The Transfer Book within six months (E-junkie keeps track of who came from where), you’ll get 50% commission.

That’s pretty much it! We pay you via Paypal within two weeks of the end of the month for the previous month’s sales. For example, if you earned $2,000 in January, you would receive that via Paypal from us by February 15.

You can log into E-junkie at any time to track your earnings, and if any issues arise, you can contact us at affiliates(AT) For additional help on how to sign up and use our affiliate program on E-junkie, see E-junkie’s own help page for affiliates.

Tips and Resources for Linking

There are several ways you can use your affiliate link to link to our site.

Basic text
The old standby. Just insert your link into a post or web page, and you’re good to go. We find that the most effective way to make sales is for you to write a review of The Transfer Book, place it on your web site, and link to our site. Honest reviews work the best, explaining who it’s for and who it isn’t for. (Basically, it’s for ambitious community college and four-year college students who want to transfer to and succeed at really good and selective schools.)

If you would like a complimentary copy of The Transfer Book for review, email us at affiliates(AT) Also please include the site you would be promoting it on.

If your site has an email list, you can send the list a quick email or add a few words about The Transfer Book to an email you were going to send out anyway. We find that links sent via email have a very high response rate. Again, honest reviews work best.

Using a link shortener
Any of the following services will take that long E-junkie link and instantly turn it into something shorter and simpler:

Twitter is really effective for driving traffic to sites, but you don’t want to spam your followers excessively with tweets about products, nobody wants that. It’s always best to genuinely review the product/site.

Banner ads
Need some ads to use on your site? No problem! Just download them or copy and paste the following ads, and add your affiliate link.
