FAQ's

Still have a question? Contact us.

Do I have to reach a minimum of referrals per month?

No. Our goal in creating this program is to enable our educators to build a sustainable source of passive income. Our educators typically reinvest their earnings into their educational initiatives. This, in turn, gives their communities better access to knowledge—so everybody wins.

The effort you put into sharing your code will depend on what your passive income goals are. We’re here to share best practices and support your initiatives from our side (HoneyBook + Rising Tide Society) as much as we can.

Is my complimentary subscription unlimited or just for a year?

Unlimited for as long as you choose to be part of the Educator Program. We believe that the creative industry benefits immensely from the work of educators. Your teachings help creative businesses thrive (and survive in many cases). When creatives stay in business and grow, they’re more likely to benefit from a client & business management solution, so our market also grows.

How much money can I make with the Educator Program?

There is no limit at all. Enjoy uncapped earnings :).

How do I get paid?

We keep things simple and send your affiliate earnings straight to your bank account set up in your HoneyBook account. If you don’t know how to set up your bank account, click here for a step by step guide.

Where is my referral dashboard?

On desktop, you can find your referral dashboard in two ways. To start, log in to your HoneyBook account.

1. Tap on the '$' icon in the upper right corner of your account. Click 'See More Ways to Share' and this will take you right to your referral dashboard overview.

Hover over Tools in your top navigation bar, and click on My Referrals.

On the mobile app, you won't have access to a full dashboard, but you can still share your referral link by logging to your account on the HoneyBook mobile app and tap the 'me' tab on the far right of your navigation bar.

How do I know who has used my referral to sign up for a HoneyBook membership?

As soon as someone uses your unique link to sign up for a free trial of HoneyBook, we send you an email to let you know.

Within this email you'll be able to tap a button and contact them directly. That way, you can give an honest opinion about your experience with HoneyBook as they evaluate the platform, remind them of their discount, or just say thanks.

Your referral dashboard allows you to track who has used your link to sign up for a membership.

What are the top places to share my link?

Courses and workshops: This is the most organic way to talk about HoneyBook because you’re already educating your audience! Step by steps and how to’s remain the most popular ways to help other creatives uplevel their business management game. Bonus value: your attendees will have access to 50% off their first year. This is an added perk that they don’t get if they go directly through our website.

  • Instagram Stories: If you're active on Instagram, using the Stories feature is a great place to give your audience a 'behind the scenes' on how you use HoneyBook. If you have the 'Swipe Up' feature, be sure to attach your referral link there. If not be sure to put your link in your bio.
  • Linktree (on Instagram): If you're a Linktree user, adding your referral link is an easy and evergreen way to surface your link to friends and followers.
  • Facebook groups you're a part of: As long as it is in compliance with the groups policies, sharing with your small communities on Facebook has proven successful. Be sure to add some context to why you're sharing!
  • Blog Posts: Our educators have found great success with written and video blog posts. Consider the following SEO friendly topics: 'Top reasons why I love using HoneyBook for my business', 'Why I switched to HoneyBook', 'How to get the most of out HoneyBook as a [insert industry type]', 'A behind the scenes look at how I use HoneyBook'.
  • Your Website: If your website visitors are often other creatives who could use HoneyBook, this is another evergreen way to put your link to work.

What should I say when I share?

The most important thing to remember is to share your personal experience with HoneyBook. This could mean sharing: your favorite feature, what your life looks like after joining, how your clients have reacted, how you've up-leveled your professionalism, how you've saved time for the things you love most, or why you decided on HoneyBook.

Consider the following SEO friendly topics: 'Top reasons why I love using HoneyBook for my business', 'Why I switched to HoneyBook', 'How to get the most out of HoneyBook as a [insert industry type]', 'A behind the scenes look at how I use HoneyBook'.

Can I contact someone when they use my link to sign up for a free trial?

Yes. We’ve found that new members really value hearing from current educators as they evaluate HoneyBook. As soon as someone uses your link to sign up for a free trial of HoneyBook, we send you an email to let you know. This email allows you to contact your referral, whether it’s just to say thanks or share your experience on HoneyBook.

Do you have swag I can share with my workshop attendees?

We’re very passionate about making our industry more sustainable, so we’ve moved away from branded physical goods. However, we have amazing makers in our member base, so if you have a budget for high-quality, handmade goods, get in touch and we’ll be happy to connect you!
