First Steps to Take Once You Become a HighLevel Affiliate

Congratulations! You are a HighLevel affiliate! 

As an affiliate, you will make 40% commission on every referral you bring in that signs on to HighLevel. You can make a commission on every HighLevel subscription plan which includes the Starter $97 plan, $297 Agency Freelancer plan, and the $497 Agency Pro plan. Those are called Tier 1 referrals. You will also be able to earn an additional 5% for Your Tier 2 referrals which are referrals that your original client brings in. 

This is a great way to bring in extra income and you were probably already talking about HighLevel before you even became an affiliate so why not make some extra cash while you do? 

So now that you are officially a HighLevel affiliate this article is going to walk you through the first things you should do once you set up your affiliate account or send out your first referral link! 

Step 1: Login to First Promoter

First Promoter is an affiliate and referrals tracking system for SaaS and subscription services. Their website description states FirstPromoter is an all-in-one platform that allows SaaS companies to track, manage and optimize any type of referral based marketing programs.”

To access your account go to

This is where you will manage and track all of your affiliate work. You will be able to see who has clicked on your link, your earnings, customers and more. 

Make Sure Your Paypal is Attached

On your dashboard go to the titles tabs and click “Payouts” this will take you to your available payout methods screen where you will connect your Paypal. 

Once you have set up your paypal it should have a green check mark and the word “Selected”.  It should also say under Available payout methods “Your selected payout method is Paypal with minimum payout of $50.”

All payouts on commission will be given out following month on the 15th with a minimum payout of $50. 

For example: If you bring someone onto the HighLevel program in January then on February 15th you’ll get a payout to your paypal account. 

Step 2: Get Familiar with the First Promoter Dashboard

When you go to your dashboard you will be able to see how many customers, referrals, clicks and unpaid earnings that you have. 

You will be able to follow through and look at everyone that you’ve brought onto the platform, everyone who is still a lead.

You will also be able to view everyone that your customers have brought on in the Sub-affiliates tab. 

You will also be able to track your referrals, your rewards and more. 

On the first promoter title tabs click on the “Assets” tab. This gives you access to all of the marketing assets that HighLevel provides to affiliates. 

Now that You’ve Finished the First Couple Steps, What’s Next? 

You should get to know the HighLevel platform and bring on those first few affiliates to your account.
