What is the Fingerstyle Summit?
The #1 online summit for fingerstyle guitarists. This summit aims to help guitarists get inspired and learn first-hand from some of the most influential fingerstyle masters of our time. We'll be covering topics like fingerstyle lessons, honing your live performance, the best guitars & gear, recording techniques and music production.
What Will You Be Promoting?
For free, participants get 24-hour access to video interviews with our fingerstyle masters, where they can learn insider tips and tricks from the very best. With a paid summit pass, participants get lifetime access to the video interviews, plus exclusive lessons and bonus content from our experts.
If you only promote the free summit signup, that's fine by us! If someone you sign up buys the full summit pass later on, you'll get credit for that sale, too. See the FAQ section for more details about this.

How to Promote the Summit
Beyond being sincere and genuine with your followers about why the summit rocks your socks off, we have a few tried-and-true strategies to help people get extra stoked.
Email around three times before the summit begins.
Interviews are only available for 24 hours before they’re locked away in the vault, so point this out.
Share your affiliate link on your social media channels!
There are plenty of graphics to swipe from our website, so make use of them in your emails and posts!
We've found that emails still work better than social media channels, so lean on them the most.
If you happen to have a solid mailing list already, we highly recommend sending out emails promoting the summit to everyone on it. The more the merrier!
Affiliate Details & Rules
Commissions will be paid out 30 days after each sale is made. This allows us enough time to process any refunds before we finalize your earnings. Your cookie is good for life (last cookie wins), so you will continue to earn commissions long after the event is over. Your affiliate link, pictures, videos & swipe copy will be accessible in the affiliate area.
You can sign up as an affiliate and log into your affiliate dashboard by clicking the button below.
We've done our best to answer any questions you might have below. If you have any questions not listed below,
please reach out via our contact form, which you can find over here.
When and how often should I promote?
You can start anytime, but we recommend that you do it at least one week and one day prior to the summit.
It's also a good idea to keep promoting the summit even after it's already started, since many people will decide to spring for the paid summit pass after getting started with the free summit content.
We highly recommend that you keep posting, sending emails and promoting the summit to your audience throughout all five summit days. Sales tend to come in close to deadlines, so it's important to keep reminding people to take advantage of the deal before prices go up or the offer goes away.
I just setup my affiliate account. Does my affiliate account work?
You can check if your account is working and ready to go by following these steps!
1. Open your web browser and type in your Affiliate link:
For example: https://tony123--e-checkout.thrivecart.com/fingerstyle-summit/
2. You will be redirected to the landing page where your community can sign up to the summit for free. Your browser will show a URL like this:
(NOTE: The URL extension "/?affiliate=tony123" is only the proof that the cookie has been set. This is NOT your affiliate link and it does not track sales, you need to share the real affiliate link:
3. Now click on the following link (which is the order page for one of our summit plans):
4. Check on the bottom of the order form if you can see your affiliate ID (in our example it would be: "Affiliate: tony123"). If yes: Congrats, it works!
If no: Please check your affiliate ID. You can find your correct Affiliate Link in your dashboard
5. Afterwards you can log into your dashboard, and you'll see a few changes, such as how many people have clicked on your affiliate link so far.
How does the affiliate link work exactly?
You need to use the original affiliate link that is generated (after signing up) in order to ensure that your tracking cookie is set. Let us explain:
1. https://YOUR-AFFILIATE-ID--e-checkout.thrivecart.com/fingerstyle-summit - This is your unique affiliate link with your affiliate ID from ThriveCart and people need to click on this link to set the cookie and be redirected to our website to sign up or buy, but… it’s ugly!
That's why we suggest using bitly.com or the plugin "Pretty Links" (in case you have your own WordPress page) to create shorter and nicer-looking links.
2. Once you've done that, your prettier affiliate link should look something like this: bit.ly/conference or https://yourdomain.com/summit.
Now, when someone clicks on that link, they are redirected to your original affiliate link and the tracking cookie is set. Then they are automatically redirected back to our website. This happens instantly—the user won't even notice it!
Finally, the user ends up on our website with a URL extension that includes your affiliate ID, which proves that the cookie has been set correctly.
3. This is how the domain should look after the cookie has been set:
You'll probably notice that the URL changed in the browser—but don't copy this final URL, as this will NOT set the cookie! You NEED to copy the original affiliate link, otherwise it doesn't work.
Let's run through that again: People click on the link from Step 2 (the nice-looking link), then they get automatically redirected to link 1 (your real affiliate link) and the cookie is set. They then get redirected to link 3 (our website). They won't notice, but this has to happen in order to set the cookie correctly (or else you won't get credit for your sales!).
NOTE: Step 2, using bitly.com or the plugin "Pretty Links" is completely optional. This is only to make your affiliate link look nicer. If you're not fussy about appearances, you can just share your original affiliate link right away and it will work just fine. Just don't share the link from Step 3!
Where do I find the promo materials?
After you've registered as an affiliate you will find the promo material inside the affiliate dashboard. Simply click on "Summit Pass" and then navigate to the "promo materials" tab.
Do people get a free ticket or do they have to pay?
All participants get free 24-hour access to our video interviews with expert fingerstyle guitarists! Each day of the 5-day summit 3-4 video interviews become available for 24 hours, after that they are locked in the summit vault.
The paid summit pass includes lifetime access to those same videos, as well as bonus content that is not available in the free plan like exclusive fingerstyle lessons, the summit workbook, the cheat sheet which is a summary of the highlights and more.
Do you have a walk through video?
Yes, here I made a video where I show you exactly what to do.
