Our Mission: To help everyone on earth write & publish a book
What we do
We’re helping authors turn their ideas into professionally published books. We write the book, publish it and market it for them. Our authors retain all rights & ownership and keep 100% of their royalties.
We’ve worked with hundreds of authors already, but there are still tens of thousands of potential authors who should write a book and don’t know that we can help them.
That’s where you come in.
While building your career, you’ve connected with people who have valuable information and stories they can share in a book, and we’ve found the best way to reach great authors is through an introduction from someone they trust.
All you have to do is make an Introduction

How it works
Here’s a real world example of how the Bobbin Ambassador Program actually works.
1. You Signed Up as an Ambassador
As a professional with a big network, You knew you were a perfect fit to become an Ambassador, so you signed up to learn more.
2. We Helped You Assess Your Network
After a brief chat, we devised a plan to help You decide the best potential authors in your network to introduce to our team.
3. You Shared Bobbin with New Author
One of the experts You decided was a great fit was New Author, so you provided a simple email introduction and our team chatted with Author about her idea.
4. New Book by New Author Was Born
New Author signed on as a client, You earned your $2k referral fee, and 5 months later, New Book was released.
Common questions about the Elite Ambassador Program.
Q. What will I have to do?
A. Our goal is to keep your commitments as minimal as possible. For most Ambassadors, that involves sharing some basic information about your network, allowing our team to review and create a plan, and then introducing us to a select few potential authors in your network. We do all the busy work of deciding who you should introduce. All you have to do is make the connection.
Q. What if I have other ideas about how to promote Bobbin?
A. That’s great! Although our goal is to avoiding putting too much work on our Ambassadors, we are always open to creative ideas. We’ve had Ambassadors give speeches, run social media campaigns, and do all sorts of other creative marketing to help refer more authors.
Q. Can I be an Ambassador if I’m not an author that worked previously with Bobbin?
A. Absolutely! As long as you know people who might make great potential authors, we want to hear from you.

You Get: ROI Sliding Scale Model (See Details Below)
How It Works
1. We will provide you with your own special Offer Code (usually a 10%-20% off coupon) to gift to your audience.
2. You make the video and in it…
- You endorse our service at the beginning, middle or end, encouraging viewers to check out Bobbin, explaining how your audience can benefit from our services and why you recommend it.
- You mention your special offer code to your audience, including the code and our link in your description and on social media, etc.
3. Before you post the video, we review it for approval and pay you a flat rate fee (based on the criteria above).
4. You publish the video and your viewer makes a purchase on our website, applying your code at checkout.
5. Your offer code tells us that you just referred an awesome author to use our service:
- You will earn the corresponding referral fee (Based on the purchasing criteria above)
- You will earn any relevant points toward bonus prizes (Based on the purchasing criteria above)
For instance, if a customer uses your code to purchase a Bobbin Book Launch, you get $700 and 1 point towards the bonus prizes that you can either keep for yourself or giveaway to your audience.
Note: This is in addition to the flat rate fee(s) you’ve already earned from creating the YouTube video(s).
Empowerment and Acknowledgement
But listen, it’s not just about money and prizes, as cool as that stuff is. Partners also get:
- Lifetime Free access to our private community Bobbin Connected where you can communicate directly with Bobbin staff and gain insider knowledge. Ambassadors also get special roles and additional privileges. Plus…
- Exclusive interviews and insider access for your channel, podcast and blog
- Business networking opportunities
- All inclusive paid trips to publishing industry events, conferences, book expos and author signings
Fair and Transparent
We’ve tried various methods of compensation, and we’ve found that YouTubers (especially smaller channels) prefer a simple flat rate because it guarantees that you get paid.
Many companies may offer to pay “per views” or just provide you with a commission from their sales. But that’s never a solid guarantee that you’ll be fairly compensated.
We avoid trying to base Sponsor Deals of CPM rates and estimated views, because these are unreliable even if they are what most advertisers are familiar with.
We choose to look at it like this…
We’re not paying for the content itself, but paying for your editing and your production work, your creativity, and your consulting us on what would appeal to your audience.
In looking at it from that perspective, you will retain creative control of your video and together we’ll make sure that everyone is getting value.
Therefore, what’s worked best for YouTubers we’ve partnered with in the past has been an ROI sliding scale model, in which your flat rate starts low but increases as your videos have proven to deliver successfully on purchases of our services.
Here’s what that looks like:
ROI Sliding Scale
Phase 1: Non-Partnership
You start at a flat rate of $50 per video
- At 25 transactions Using Your Code – You get $100 per video
- At 50 transactions Using Your Code – You get $500 per video
Phase 2: Partnership
You may engage in an on-going, long-term partnership with Bobbin.
- At 100 transactions Using Your Code – You get $1000 per video
- At 500 transactions Using Your Code – You get $2000 per video
- At 1000 transactions Using Your Code – You get $5000 per video
This keeps everything simple, and compensates you for the exposure Bobbin is receiving.
That said, what most Creators also find is that though the flat rate is a little less with us, they actually make more money in total.
And their quality of life goes up because they’re getting paid upfront for the creation of the video itself and earning bonus commission fees from referrals off that same video.
Plus, you’re also racking up points toward valuable bonuses!
Pretty cool, right?
Common Questions about Bobbin YouTube Sponsorships
Q. How does the ROI Sliding Scale model work with Bobbin Dedicated Video and Bobbin Sketch Video?
A. If your offer code is used less than 25 times, you will continue to earn the respective flat rate fee for the type of video you’ve created.
If your offer code is used more than 25 times, but less than 50 times, your brand mention fee will increase to $100. And you may also earn $200 if you create a sketch video.
If your offer code is used 50 times or more, your fee will increase according to the scale. Example: You will earn $500+ for any style of video you make with Bobbin.
Q. Do I have creative control of my video?
A. Yes! It’s important that you stay true to your audience. And we consider you the expert in your audience. Not us. You know better than us what they want. And we don’t want to mess things up for everyone by being know-it-alls who really know nothing, Jon Snow.
That said, we’re always available to provide clarity on things from our side. Never hesitate to ask us anything. We’re super friendly and rooting for you to succeed.
Q. What if I have other ideas about how to promote Bobbin on other platforms?
A. That’s great! If you think it will work, then an additional skit on TikTok, or a story on Instagram, or blog post on LinkedIn, etc. might give the campaign more power. But it should only be done if it benefits the interest of your audience and our brand. We’ll always defer to you for what you feel will work for all parties.
