Gugu Guide FAQs
Here is a list of frequently asked questions about the Gugu Guide program
How do I get started?
Sign up to be a Gugu Guide here: https://app.tvpage.com/ambassadors/7f34c4eb/account/new and be sure to download the Storefront by TVPage mobile app for iOS or Android as well. We'll review your application within 24-48 hours and send you an email with next steps.
Do I need a large social media following to join as a guide?
Absolutely not! We accept anyone who wants to share video reviews of products with our community of parents.
What are the perks of being a Gugu Guide?
By becoming a founding Gugu Guide, you will benefit from $0 storefront fees (forever!), a starting commission of 5% on any sale, lots of free products, features on our website and socials, first-in-line status for paid brand collaborations and much more!
What are the requirements to being a Gugu Guide?
Currently the only requirement to keep your spot as a founding Gugu Guide is generating a minimum of 30 unique visitors to your storefront per month. If you have fewer than 30 unique visitors per month, we reserve the right to remove you from the program.
What is the incentive structure for Guides?
1. Create your first three videos and receive a $100 shop credit to try & review any product(s) in our shop. After that, receive $25 shop credit for each video review you create.
2. Share your storefront and product videos using your unique links. When someone purchases, you receive a starting commission of 5% (which increases based on performance.)
3. Once you create 10 videos, we will feature your storefront on our website, socials and more – to increase the likelihood of sales from our community.
4. Once you generate $250 in gross orders, you receive Sage Status, which makes you eligible for paid brand campaigns and additional bonuses. (Note: our current average order value is ~$105 so $250 = to ~2.5 orders.)
Do my first three videos have to be about products listed in your shop?
Nope! You can review whatever products you’d like to for your first three reviews. Please just give us a heads up that you’re going to be reviewing a product we don’t carry so that we can manually link it to our shop before you upload the video. Just keep in mind that you will not receive commission on videos about products we don’t carry at Gugu Guru. After your first three videos, we ask that you only review products we carry unless you’re participating in a paid campaign.
What if I don’t like the product? Should I skip the review?
Please don’t skip the review! At Gugu Guru, we know not every product works for everyone. However, we do ask that you’re respectful. Don’t bash a product or brand but instead speak constructively on why it didn’t work for you and/or how it could be improved.
Can I use images instead of videos?
You can use images, but we suggest video because we want you to have the highest likelihood of earning and videos typically convert at a rate of 7.5% whereas images typically convert at a rate of around 3.2%.
Can I use my own affiliate links in my storefront?
At this time, we cannot support affiliate links outside of Gugu Guru.
How do I add payment information to my storefront?
- Login to your account
- Go to Statements
- Add your payment information for where you'd like to receive your earnings
When will I get paid?
You will receive your commission within 30-45 days of each sale.
(Each sale goes into a 30 day holding period for security purposes and funds are released within the first 10 days of the following month)
Your commission payments will arrive in the account linked to your storefront account and will be released within the first 10 days of each month.
