Canva Champions: A New Program for Affiliates
Delighted to announce that I am one of the new beta testers of the Canva Champions group. I thought I’d create a brief blog post explaining what the Canva Champions program is and what criteria you’ll have to have to become a Champion. There is not a lot of information out yet, other than what one can see on FB* now, but I do promise to update this post as the program develops and opens up to a new intake of champs in the camp.
Canva’s Affiliate Program
Canva has been running an affiliate program for a long time now (a few years or so) but there are changes going on behind the scenes. Some of which I am not allowed to talk about yet as I said, so will be treading carefully here…
Right now, anyone can sign up for a FREE Canva Pro trial and receive 30 days worth. As a Canva Certified Creative (CCCs), I can offer my audience 45 Days through a special link. So I share this on my social media (that link is in all my bios) and at the end of my webinar slides and so forth. My followers are so special they get rewarded with two extra weeks and I get a share of the revenue. Win/Win. As you can imagine I promote that 45 Day free trial many times a week on all platforms. Soon other people will be able to become affiliates (though not with that same 45 day offer, I don’t think, but likely to be the normal 30 days).
Recently Canva opened their affiliate program beyond just us CCCs to include an audience of other people who are creating wonderful Canva content, or who are educators and so forth. This means that, once the program moves out of beta, people all over the world may apply and be considered for the Champions league, I mean program 😉 I do not know when that will be but the Facebook page reads:
“This group was created to empower, connect and support Canva Champions to help them grow their businesses and spread the word about Canva.” It goes on to say that who it’s for, “affiliate or a content creator who champions Canva’s mission to empower the world to design!”
As you can see, it needs to be for people who are promoting Canva in their work – educators, creators, youtubers, bloggers, etc. There will be criteria to meet – just as there are to become a CCC.
Champions Program Beta is Closed
Though the beta testing is closed for new champs just now, it will open again at some point, once they’ve worked out what the program will entail, the criteria to join and the guidelines for being a part of the community. When there are more concrete details to be shared, I’ll update this post or create a new one…Hope you found it useful – even if only as a wee teaser to whet your appetite about becoming a champion too!
By the way, when researching this post for you, I found this cool (different kind of) Champions page on Canva that is worth a look! Also see this new video I made and tweeted. Thanks for stopping by.
#Canva is always free! But a Pro membership offers more features, pics, tunes, graphics & templates. My video highlights 10 reasons why I think it’s worth an upgrade to #CanvaPro.
