If you're sure that someone you know used your referral link but you're not seeing the data in your dashboard, be aware that:
You only earn commission on paid purchases. If someone uses your link to make a vidIQ account but doesn't purchase, you won't earn any commission.
The affiliate program is designed to earn you commission for your referral of purchasers outside of your existing network. As such, you may not earn commission (or see clicks or other conversions) from family members or friends who purchase via your link.
For best success with the affiliate program, think big! Share your link as far and wide as possible, and sell the value of the vidIQ features you know and love. Your commissions will build up before you know it!
