The Mission

Collections by Mama Shark exists to connect creators and small business owners with their ideal audiences, and to connect those audiences with high-quality valuable resources delivered in a convenient digital format.

The Basics of a Collection

How does a Collection work? How are the Collections made? How does this benefit those who take part?

Each Collection is made up of a select number of Customers, Contributors, Affiliates, and Sponsors. The Contributors create and give their products and services. The Affiliates help to get the word out and get paid commission for doing so. The Sponsors create offers to benefit the customers. The Customers get it all at a 95% or greater discount!

Instead of having to scour the web in hopes of finding the resources they need, customers get to buy these carefully curated bundles of resources put together for them an amazing discounted rate (95% off or more!)! 

Creating an online business in today’s world isn’t easy- and one of the hardest parts is getting the word about your offers out to audiences who need what you have made. Collections provides increased exposure for creators and small business owners and gives them the chance to interest customers in their brand.

None of the Collections would succeed without our affiliates! Affiliates spread the word about the Collections, and in return, they are paid commission on any sales made through their link. It’s a great way to connect audiences with products they’ll love with the benefit of being paid for it!

We accept a limited number of sponsors per Collection! Each sponsor is given ad space in a combination of site locations, email blasts, and within the Collections themselves, depending on which option they choose. This is a great way for creators to connect with their audiences!

Contribute to the Collections

  • You will contribute a paid digital product or service that you are willing to offer to the Collection customers for free. The most common types of submissions are eCourses, printables, eBooks, memberships, and coaching services- but contributions are not limited to those.
  • Contributed items must be legally yours to sell (i.e. don’t steal someone else’s work!), high quality, not offered in a Collection by Mama Shark before and not used in another bundle or giveaway within 2 months of the Collection sale dates.
  • You will provide a coupon or a link that allows the customers to get your product or service for free. We will compile the accepted items and create a Collection that features each one. Any and all buyers of that particular Collection can then redeem your item at no cost to them.
  • The coupon or special link for your item must remain active for a minimum of 18 months. We may choose to use that Collection again as an upsell up to a year after the original sale date, and buyers will have a minimum of 6 months to redeem their items (for a total of 18 months from original sale).
  • It is encouraged that you require an email sign up so that you can collect the emails of those who redeem your product so you can welcome them, build trust with them, and potentially sell other things to them down the line.
  • Upsells and tripwires are allowed and encouraged.

    There are three packages in each Collection: Bronze, Silver, and Gold. The Bronze package will include contributions valued at up to $9. The Silver package will include contributions valued between $10-46. The Gold package will include contributions valued at $47+. You may submit as many items to be considered for the Collection as you would like. We will accept a maximum of one contribution per contributor per package for a maximum of 3 per contributor (1 in Bronze, 1 in Silver, 1 in Gold) for each Collection.

  1. Rapid increase in email subscriptions
  2. Potential sales from upsells/tripwires
  3. Building brand authority. You will also receive a “As Seen In” badge to include on your website or in social media.
  4. Greater audience exposure
  5. Networking and collaboration possibilities with other contributors
  6. Increased page views
  7. Free copy of the Collection your item is in
  8. Paid commissions (if you choose to also be an affiliate, which we highly recommend!)
  9. Increased commission from 30% to 45% (50% if you also become a sponsor!) if you are also an affiliate!
  • Contributions must not be in another bundle or giveaway within 2 months of the Collection sale dates
  • Contributions must not have been in a Collection by Mama Shark before
  • Contributions must fit the theme of the Collection
  • Contributions must be digital (no physical products requiring shipping)
  • Contributions must be ready for testing at time of submission, including sales page, welcome email, and download/access/delivery.
  • Contributions must be excellent. We are going to promote you as being top-notch, so be top-notch!
  • Contributors must promote the Collection they are included in

No, we do not accept every contribution submitted. There are three packages in each Collection: Bronze, Silver, and Gold.  We accept a maximum of 24 products per package per Collection. The Bronze package contains contributions valued at $1-9. The Silver package contains contributions valued at $10-46. The Gold package contains contributions valued at $47+.

We are looking to make every part of the process of buying and redeeming the Collections to be as simple and fun as can be so that customers will tell their friends and will be repeat purchasers themselves. Therefore, ways to increase your chances of being accepted are:

  • First and foremost, offering high quality items that fit the theme of the Collection you are contributing to.
  • Offering higher value items– but do NOT inflate the value! We don’t want customers to feel they are getting scammed.
  • Making sure every step of your redemption process is ready to go and as easy to use as possible. We get that sometimes technology limits things- but do what you can with what you have. Test the whole process before sending in the form!
  • Create an attractive and professional sales page/redemption page. It doesn’t need to look like a world-class design, but it should be easy to read, clear what the item is, and with instructions on how to access it.
  • Submit quality mock ups, ads, and bio pictures on the forms. You don’t have to be a professional or hire a graphic designer- but your graphics should be easy to read and understand and the bio pictures should be a picture of only you- preferably mostly your face.
  • Follow the instructions. If the form asks for a square graphic, please don’t submit a circle. 🙂
  • Make sure you have submitted your Contributor Application. See Step 2 below.
  • Be prompt in reading and responding to emails. This is how I will primarily communicate with contributors, so it helps to know you are actively interested and involved and available if I have questions about your item.

Yes! We do not have a requirement for how long you’ve been creating/blogging/in business, nor do we have a requirement about how many are in your audience. If you have a quality product that fits well in one of our Collections, then submit it! 

Also, don’t let not knowing how to do something hold you back. If you need help getting set up, email me at stephanie@mamashark.blog. Simple answers I can send you and if you need more in-depth help we can set up a coaching session or I can refer you to another expert who can help.

If design is not your thing, there will also be templates available for purchase for many of the graphics needed for the form. There will also be lots of info and tips sent out throughout the process to help you have the most success possible!

It is $10 per contribution submission (regardless of whether or not it is accepted). You will not be asked to pay this fee until you submit your item. This fee helps to cover the large amount of administrative work it takes to process the forms, check products, answer questions, put together the Collections, provide customer service, etc.

Please email me at stephanie@mamashark.blog with any questions. I’m here to help and all questions are welcome! I’m also always looking for ways to improve, so if you have suggestions or comments, please send them on!

I want to contribute to a Collection! What now?

Step 1

If this is your first time contributing to Collectiona by Mama Shark, enter your Email Address below so we can send you forms and instructions. This will also add you to the newsletter for contributors so we can let you know about future contribution opportunities.

Step 2

If this is your first time contributing to Collections by Mama Shark, fill out the Contributor Application Form that will be emailed to you after you sign up (Step 1). This is to apply to be a Contributor, not to contribute an item to the Collection. You may apply to be a Contributor before you are ready to submit an item.

Step 3

Fill out the Submission Form (will be emailed to you after you complete Steps 1 and 2). Once you're on our email list we will notify you of each upcoming opportunity to contribute in the future (with opt-out options), so you do not have to repeat Steps 1 and 2.

Step 4

Promote the Collection! Requirements, instructions, graphics, and swipe copy will be emailed to you. Be sure to sign up as an affiliate to be paid for any sales through your link!

Step 5

Sit back and watch the email sign ups pour in (and commission if you're an affiliate)!

Become an Affiliate for the Collections

Affiliates are a crucial part of the Collections team! We can have the best Collections in the world, but it won’t do us any good without customers- so how do we get our products in front of potential customers? Affiliates!

An affiliate is anyone with an audience (even a small one!) who spreads the word about the Collections.

We provide a cookied link for each affiliate to track their clicks and conversions (sales) and affiliates are then paid 30% (or more if you are a contributor or sponsor) of whatever sales made through their link! For example, if an affiliate sends their link to a friend and the friend purchases a $30 item, the affiliate would get $10 of that sale at a rate of 30%.

And we make it SUPER EASY for you. We provide graphics, copy-and-paste emails and social media posts, and lots of tips and tricks on how to make the most money for the time you put in.

  1. With our unique layering sales method (the Bronze, Silver, and Gold packages), we bring in more interested customers who are more likely to buy more- which helps you make more in commission!
  2. All affiliates start at a minimum of 30% commission, but you can increase that to 45% by contributing to a Collection or sponsoring an ad. Contribute AND sponsor to get a 50% commission rate!
  3. We take care of our affiliates and give you even more chances to earn prizes and commission upgrades as we go along. We want YOU to succeed so that we all succeed!
  4. Affiliates also receive a code for 50% off the Silver and Gold packages (Bronze is always free)!
  5. Our sales pages are high converting, which means we’ll do the selling- all you have to do is get them to the sales page! 
  6. Your link affiliate code contains a “cookie” that lets us track who buys through your link so we can pay you your commission- and we have 6 MONTH cookies! Far longer than the industry standard, this means that you may even get commission for sales you didn’t even promote- future Collections or even things from the Mama Shark Launchpad.
  7. My links will never override yours, so even if they join the waitlist with your link, as long as yours is the last *affiliate* link clicked, you get the credit!
  • Complete the Steps below to sign up as an affiliate.
  • Have an audience, no matter how small.
  • Use proper disclosure for your affiliate links to let your audience know that you may receive a commission. Information on how to do this will be available to all affiliates.

Generally, yes. However, we reserve the right to refuse or cancel any affiliate who is unresponsive, unkind, dishonest, or gives us a reason to feel they are not accurately representing the Collections brand.

There is no fee to become or participate as an affiliate.

Please email me at stephanie@mamashark.blog with any questions. I’m here to help and all questions are welcome! I’m also always looking for ways to improve, so if you have suggestions or comments, please send them on!

I want to become an affiliate for Collections by Mama Shark! What now?

Step 1

Enter your Email Address below so we can send you forms and instructions. This will also add you to the newsletter for affiliates so you will be notified about future opportunities to promote!

Step 2

If this is your first time contributing to Collections by Mama Shark, fill out the Affiliate Application Form that will be emailed to you after you sign up (Step 1).

Step 3

Opt-in to any promotions that interest you. We will send periodic newsletters with the upcoming opportunities with the chance to sign up for the ones that interest you. We will also give you the chance to opt-in to any Mama Shark (non-Collections) promotions that would be a good fit for your audience as well.

Step 4

Promote the Collection! Instructions, graphics, and swipe copy will be emailed to you.

Step 5

Sit back and watch the money come in! We pay our affiliates within 30 days of the sale ending.

You will choose what type/s of ads you would like included, purchase them, then send in the form with the needed information/graphics (see Steps below). Creating graphics not your thing? We’ve got you covered- when you purchase your ad space you can also purchase our ready-to-go templates to plug-and-play your branding and information!

  1. Increased exposure to your ideal audience = more sales for you!
  2. Between the promotions of the contributors and affiliates, information about the Collections will reach thousands (sometimes hundreds of thousands) of people with the potential of bringing them to your ad and therefore your site!
  3. Sponsoring an ad builds your authority as people see your brand around more and connect it in their head with other things they have enjoyed (i.e. the Collections!).
  4. Sponsors receive a free copy of the Collections they are included in!
  • Just follow the Steps listed below and fill out the required forms and payment information that will be sent to you!
  • All coupons or discounts promoted in the sponsored ads must be good for at least 6 months from the sale dates of the Collection they are included in.

No. We have a limited number of spots for each type of ad in each Collection.

We are looking to make every part of the process of the Collections to be as simple and fun as can be so that customers will tell their friends and will be repeat purchasers themselves. Therefore, ways to increase your chances of being accepted are:

  • First and foremost, offering high quality items that fit the audience the Collection appeals to. It does not have to fit the Collection itself, but should be something those who are purchasing the Collection are also likely to enjoy.
  • Keep it classy. We prefer a page that does not include swearing, and will reject any ads that include profanity. We will also reject any ads that include degrading depictions (verbal or visual) of any person or type of person or that we otherwise deem inappropriate or ill-fitting with the branding of Collections by Mama Shark.
  • Offering a discount/coupon code. Everyone loves to feel like they’re getting an exclusive deal! 
  • Create an attractive and professional sales page/redemption page. It doesn’t need to look like a world-class design, but it should be easy to read, clear what the item is, and with instructions on how to access it/buy it.
  • Submit quality mock ups/ads/bio pictures on the forms. You don’t have to be a professional or hire a graphic designer- but your graphics should be easy to read and understand and the bio pictures should be a picture of only you- preferably mostly your face.
  • Follow the instructions. If the form asks for a square graphic, please don’t submit a circle. 🙂
  • Be prompt in reading and responding to emails. This is how I will primarily communicate with sponsors, so it helps to know you are actively interested and involved and available if I have questions about your ad.
  • Pay for your ad space on time. Once your ad has been accepted, we will send an invoice with a due date. Any ads not paid for by the due date will be rejected. If you need an exception, please email stephanie@mamashark.blog.

Please see the pricing options listed below.
