Before you dive in and explore, which we highly recommend you do, first make sure that you have access to GrooveDigital Academy. If you don’t see it on the dashboard, that’s because it’s a separate login page where we house all of our training resources.
Your login credentials should’ve been emailed to you as soon as you signed up for your account. If you don’t see it, check your inbox and junk folders for an email with the subject line: Your New GrooveDigital Academy Account
If you still don’t see it, select “Forgot Password” or simply create a new account.
Select “GrooveFunnels Training” under My Courses, and select the “Walk-Throughs” tab.
You’ll notice that you’re able to skip ahead, but we don’t recommend it. This series is designed to take less than an hour, from start to finish, and breaks down all the Partner Program tasks into easily implemented chunks. It truly has everything you need!

If you had a chance to go through Walkthrough #1 in the GrooveDigital Academy, you already know that we have integrated our products with the best affiliate program in the world.
We want you to succeed in our Groove Partner Program. And it’s designed to help you generate and convert leads, even with no prior experience.

Groove Partner Program Commission
When you sign up for your free account, you will get instant access to your own affiliate links to start promoting Groove. You do NOT have to upgrade or apply to access our affiliate program!
Should you decide to join our Groove Affiliate Partner Program, you will have immediate access to the affiliate management area and promotional tools. This will make your promotion efforts all the more effective, meaning you can start growing your business without unnecessary hassle or complicated tech.
By promoting Groove products, you will earn 20% commission on Tier 1 and 5% on Tier 2 – using your free Groove account. By upgrading your membership, you will earn 40% commission on Tier 1 and 10% on Tier 2.
A Tier 1 conversion is when you refer a lead to Groove (via your affiliate link) and they convert. If that user then goes on to refer others, with their affiliate link, you receive a commission on those conversions too, which is Tier 2.
- 20% commission* on Tier 1 – for LIFE
- 5% commission* on Tier 2 – so you can build a downline and get paid for their efforts
*Upgraded members get 40% on Tier 1 and 10% on Tier 2.
The good news is that no one can ever take your lead from you. You own it for life.
If you refer the lead to us, and they sign up for their free account, that lead is locked in and connected to YOU for life. We call this “first tag wins.”
It doesn’t matter when or where they upgrade in future – you own it and are guaranteed the commission.
That’s why it’s so critical to start promoting right now.
And Groove Affiliates get paid weekly.

Sales Funnel Checklist
Everything you’ve completed up until this point is designed for you to get started and build out your own basic sales funnel.
In fact, Groove.CM™ was recently renamed from the previous GrooveFunnels™ to better represent the full functionality of the Groove product suite. It’s more than just a page builder and affiliate marketing opportunity; it’s also a sales funnel platform, among many other things.
Learning how to set up a basic sales funnel will serve you whether you’re a Groove affiliate, an affiliate for other products, or launching your own product.
Here’s a quick overview of the top five tools that you need to run a successful and profitable online business:
- Merchant Account
- Shopping Cart
- Sales Copy
1. Merchant Account
Business owners who sell products and services online must have a reliable merchant account to accept payments.
And that’s precisely why we have included a merchant processing service as part of the GrooveDigital™ family, called GroovePay™.
GroovePay™ specializes in digital marketing and ecommerce, which means you will get fast and easy approval. And with competitive merchant pricing, more of your revenue will end up in your pocket.
Apply for your merchant account at www.groovepay.com
2. Shopping Cart
The ability to accept online credit card payments is one thing, but integrating it to your website is another. And most shopping cart systems are expensive, complicated, and have lackluster features.
Once again, we have created the best solution for shopping cart software, called GrooveSell™.
It’s the most powerful sales and affiliate platform on the market. You can create unlimited product funnels with customizable pricing structures and robust checkout options.
And it’s free. No monthly bills and no transaction fees. Learn more at www.groovesell.com
An autoresponder is a system that allows you to capture customer information and send automated email sequences or live broadcasts.
“The money is in the list,” after all. So, for business owners who are committed to building long-term relationships with their customers, a reliable autoresponder and CRM is crucial to the growth of their business.
Marketers invest hundreds, even thousands, of dollars into their autoresponder systems. But a newer business might prefer to go with low-cost or free options that can easily integrate with GrooveFunnels™.
But those tools aren’t designed for Internet Marketers and there are limitations to the features. As part of the Groove.CM™ suite, you also have access to GrooveMail™ – a world-class email autoresponder and CRM solution.
Go to www.groovemail.com to set up your autoresponder.
Although you might choose to start off as a Groove affiliate, the end goal should be to create your own product (digital/physical) or service.
- Educational info products
- Membership sites
- Digital templates and tools
Selling your own products like those in the list above will allow you to maximize the benefits of creating a sales funnel because the goal is to attract customers so that you can build your own business.
That being said, if you are just starting out and don’t currently have your own products or services to sell, you can still create your sales funnel to promote affiliate products – including Groove.CM™.
The Imperfect Action Challenge is the perfect starting point for going about this.
5. Sales Copy
Attracting your potential customers like a bee to honey is dependent on the sales copy of your webpage. It’s what captures attention and drives prospects to take action, no matter the call-to-action (CTA).
A typical sales page has headlines and subheadlines, easily identifiable using big or colored fonts. The goal of a headline is to make visitors interested enough to continue reading the rest of the sales page copy, and this is where you utilize persuasive copywriting tactics to convince visitors to take action – instead of just clicking away. It’s one of the most important text elements of your page and has a huge impact on conversions!
GroovePagesⓇ allows you to select pre-made templates with headline and sales copy elements that have already been inserted for you. Simply highlight the text, hit delete, and replace it with your own; either model the text that you’re replacing or the headline from the product page.
With Groove, your earning potential is unlimited. And it no longer takes weeks to build an effective sales funnel that’s proven to convert.
- Sell unlimited products with unlimited funnels
- Create integrated email sequences
- Build pages with a drag-and-drop builder
- Create robust checkout experiences
- Optimize video-based content
- Offer upsells, downsells, and order bumps
