Affiliates

If you want to promote one or more of my products, please use the sign-up links below the videos.

Thrivecart

I use a product called Thrivecart as my affiliate platform. To promote you'll need to create an account with them.

The videos below show the sign-up process and what you need to do. (The process is quick and easy, but these may assist.)

Initial Sign-up

The button to use to sign-up is below these videos. On the sign-up page, you'll see this video again.
Once you've signed up, you'll be pending approval but can link your PayPal account.

Link Your PayPal account

You won't get an affiliate link until you've:

  1. been approved
  2. linked your Paypal account.

So, while waiting, I'd recommend doing that. (I don't have a video for that, but it's straightforward enough).

Once approved...

Next is to link your PayPal account.

Link Your PayPal account

Once you've signed-up, you will need to link your Paypal account before you can do anything else.

I don't have a video to do that, but it's straightforward enough. Once initiated, follow the on-screen instructions.

Once approved...

Below is the video on what happens next (once you've applied to promote, you'll receive an email from the system and can then complete registration):

  • Even us power users curse Word sometimes, especially when for some unknown reason, one of our styles displays a black box instead of the number that it should show, corrupting the Table of Contents in the process. Or we fix a paragraph multiple times and it keeps insisting on changing back. Or we inherit a one-hundred page document that needs totally reformatting, one paragraph at a time. Enter Mr. Crowley’s course, Microsoft Word 2016 for Beginners*. 

    The one thing I liked best about the course was Mr. Crowley’s teaching style, clear, concise and reasonably paced. The material is thoughtfully laid out, one lesson flowing smoothly into the next.  Don’t let the course name fool you. After covering the basics, this course shows you how to do virtually anything that you might need. Document gotten so big that it could use a Table of Contents? Module 10. Need an index? Module 16. Want a numbered list and it needs sorted? Module 13. 

    These are just a few of the items taught in this course. You’ll definitely be scratching your head, thinking, “wow, I didn’t know Word could do that.

    Mr. Crowley could be called a “style and section evangelist”. He never misses an opportunity to emphasize that any misbehaving document probably has its roots in poorly-applied or unused styles and sections. I suspect this may be the root cause of my black squares for numbers identified earlier. After completing the course, the main benefit I have a better appreciation of Word’s bells and whistles, along with a resource for how to do things. I would recommend this course to users of all skill levels.
