What is BundlesforGood.com?

- It is only offered for five days, and again 6 months later for a short aftersale.
- Contributors to the bundle offer products at no cost in exchange for the massive amount of exposure they will get and the 70% affiliate commissions on all they sell.
Who is Behind Bundles for Good?
My name is John Bardos. I have an old blog at JetSetCitizen.com where you can learn more about me and my family’s journey to selling all our belongings to focus on more meaningful projects and experiences. I’ve have blogged for many years about minimalism, travel, location independence, social good and other related topics on my way to find more meaning and purpose with my life. BundlesforGood.com is my latest venture to contribute more to the world.
Why do you give profits to charity?
It’s very important for me to maximize my impact in the world. I believe all businesses and individuals have a responsibility to do good. Committing to give a big percentage to charity is a way to support worthy causes AND give great deals on valuable online resources.
Why do you give 25%?
In similar projects, a common range for donations is 5% to 10% of profits. I feel that is low. 25% of gross profits will make a bigger impact on the organizations we contribute to.
At the same time, this business needs to invest and grow in order to maximize its social impact. Giving away too much of the profits will jeopardize the long-term viability. 25% is a large percentage that still leaves profits to hire staff and reinvest. Over time, this will help Bundles For Good maximize the total contribution.
What charity are you supporting?
The main charity we support is Courageous Kitchen, a bootstrapped charity helping refugees in Thailand. I have volunteered with them and met with the founder several times so I can attest to the difference they are making. They have almost no overhead or marketing expenses so the money we donate goes directly to those in need. As little as $100 per month can get a family off the streets in Thailand. Courageous Kitchen founder, Dwight Turner is featured in this short video below.
How much money have you raised so far?
Here is what the charities say:
“BundlesforGood has become one of our primary sponsors. Your donations are helping some of the most vulnerable people in Bangkok. A family can live for as little as $100 so the money you contribute is changing lives. Thank you to all the contributors and purchasers! Courageous Kitchen loves you!” – Dwight Turner – Courageous Kitchen
“Thank you John and all the Bundle for Good contributors for your donation to Free Arts! Your donation will help Free Arts serve over 22,000 children this year. Through your contribution, Free Arts will be able to provide art and mentorship to children in need in Los Angeles. Thank you once again for your generous contribution.” Tom Earl – FreeArts.org
“Thank you to all the Bundles for Good contributors and purchasers. The Hope Effect will put your donation to good use.” – Joshua Becker – The Hope Effect
How much does it cost to participate?
There is no cost to participate, all you have to do is contribute an online resource like an ebook or a course for the sale.
What are the benefits for contributors?
- The bundle will be promoted to many tens of thousands, so it’s a great way to market your work. (Participating affiliates will promote it to their email lists and on social media.)
- Contributors earn a 70% affiliate commission on all they sell. With more than a 95% discount, it’s an easy sell. (Compare selling a single product of your own, to a bundle of dozens of products worth thousands of dollars promoted by many others.)
- You’ll potentially have hundreds or even thousands of people try the products you contribute, so it’s a great way to reach new audiences and sell other products in the future.
- For many contributors, this promotion will be one of the most profitable products they launch this year.
What can you contribute?
Any digital product that you normally sell and fits with the theme of the bundle is perfect. The product you contribute can’t be something you typically give away for free. It should be a full book, course, or other quality resource that you normally sell or have sold in the past.
The higher quality products you contribute, the better the bundle will be and the more attractive it will be to purchasers. The more you offer, the more you will be promoted on the website. (Multiple products will be listed multiple times.)
How do I contribute?
For ebooks and other PDF-based resources, you’d send me a PDF that I will host and provide to purchasers of the bundle from a private member’s page.
For online courses, the best way to provide access is with a coupon code that makes the price go to zero. I ask that all coupon codes expire 1 year after the sale is completed. I’ll provide the exact dates and more detailed information later. There will be dozens of products in the bundle and purchasers will need ample time to access everything. If you need to specify a total number of codes, a safe number would be 4000. That should be more than enough for the first sale and aftersale.
When is the next Bundles for Good?
The next Art Bundles for Good is in November 2020.
What is the deadline for contributing?
I’d like all products submitted by October 15, 2020. However, the faster you get your products to me, the better. It takes a lot of time to test the course links, create images, build-out and test the member’s page, and design all the marketing materials. Please try to get your products to me as fast as possible.
I don’t have much time, how much work will this be?
I’ll provide all the sample promotional emails so it will be a minimal effort for affiliates. Your total effort will be a few emails you send out to your list. There is no obligation to promote the offer. It is completely your choice how much you’d like to promote the offer.
When are affiliate commissions paid?
Affiliate commissions are paid out just after the 30 day refund period is over. Refunds will need to be reconciled against each affiliate’s sales and then you will receive your payment.
We are making a difference to a worthy charity and those it helps, we will help promote your work to a large audience, and you can make some great affiliate commissions for minimal effort. You can’t lose by participating.
