— Rosario Dawson, Executive Producer and Narrator

About this program:

The Need To GROW is a deeply impactful documentary that explores the profound connection between soil health, food security, and environmental sustainability. Through the lens of three extraordinary innovators and their cutting-edge solutions, the film sheds light on the fragility of our current food system and advocates for responsible, regenerative agriculture.

Under the compelling narration of esteemed celebrity and activist Rosario Dawson, The Need To GROW delivers a unifying message of hope and empowerment while issuing an inspiring call to action. It leaves viewers with the vital understanding that every individual can make a difference, and collectively, we hold the power to shape a brighter future for our planet.

When you share this offer with your audience, they will be invited to watch the film for FREE for four days. We hope this screening experience will be an extraordinary resource for your followers, a contribution to building a healthy future for our children, and a great moneymaker to support your mission.

Core audience:

Anyone who enjoys a good movie! The Need To GROW attracts a wide-ranging audience, including foodies, locavores, gardeners, environmentalists, and people concerned about GMOs, pesticides, and climate change. The film’s message holds universal appeal and resonates with people of all dietary orientations.

About the funnel:

After participants sign up for the screening event, they will be given four days of free access to the film. Later in the funnel, registrants will have the opportunity to purchase an Impact Kit that helps them put all the learnings from The Need To GROW into action.

The Impact Kit is a collection of 15 powerful 45-minute lessons featuring experts on gardening, composting, healing foods and herbs, soil’s connection to the microbiome, removing pesticides from your community, and more. It also comes with lifetime digital film access, full-length expert interviews from the film, deleted scenes, and more than $500 worth of bonuses. The Impact Kit sells for $197 and is offered on sale during the limited-time screening for just $97 — and for fast action takers from the screening page, $67.

All Impact Kit buyers will be given complimentary access to one of FRN’s Health Collections (a $97 value) for free — or they can add all four Health Collections to their order for a $47 upsell. Affiliate commissions are payable for both the Impact Kit and upsells.

Registrants for The Need To GROW will be added to both the Food Revolution Network and Earth Conscious Life email lists.

Historic stats:

On average, affiliates have earned more than $2.74 per lead for this program. Nearly 80% of the people who start the movie finish it, and despite a very generous 60-day money-back guarantee, less than 2% of buyers ask for a refund.

Commission structure:

Unless otherwise agreed, affiliates receive 50% commission on eligible sales and upsells. Affiliates can also receive 10% lifetime commissions for second-tier referrals (i.e., they receive 10% of sales revenue generated by affiliates they refer).

We offer 70-day last-referrer tracking, and occasionally launches are stacked.

Barring any special circumstances, we pay out the prior month’s affiliate commissions in the first week of the following month.

Bottom line: Promoting this totally free (and life-changing) film could be a great revenue source for you and YOUR mission!

Email Swipe Copy

How to Use the Copy We Provide

The suggested copy and images we offer are simply ideas to help you get started. Most partners have learned that it works best to write in their own authentic voice. Please use our images and copy as much as you would like, but feel confident that you know your audience best.

Every time you see “[First Name],” we are suggesting you include the recipient’s first name. If you don’t have their name, we suggest substituting the word “Friend” or editing it out.

Based on our research, the use of [First Name] in the subject, when used judiciously, leads to about a 5–10% bump in open and click rate. That’s something you may want to use only a time or two, as represented in the copy we’re providing. We offer several suggested subject lines — hopefully you’ll see something you like or come up with your own!

Follow-up Emails to Unopens

If you send early in the promo window, we recommend sending a follow-up email — 1–2 days after your first email — to the people who haven’t opened. To maximize the chances of engagement, it’s best to use a new subject line and opening paragraph. In our experience, this strategy has been shown to increase initial results by approximately 40%. It’s worth noting that recent changes in email tracking may inaccurately mark some recipients as having opened a message, even if they haven’t. Despite this imperfection, sending to unopens can still be an effective way to improve your overall email performance.

Three Tips For Better Email Results
  1. Our swipe copy is a fantastic starting point, but we encourage you to add your own unique style and voice to make it even more effective. It’s important to remember that if multiple affiliates are using the same exact messaging, it may not create the desired impact. That’s why we strongly recommend adding a personal touch and tailoring the content to resonate with your audience. Let your creativity shine and make it your own!
  2. According to data on email delivery, messages that contain fewer than four hyperlinks tend to have a higher likelihood of reaching inboxes and Gmail primary folders. The swipe copy we provide usually includes three hyperlink slots for this reason.
  3. Based on our testing, we have found that using a capital letter for the first word of the subject line and lowercase letters for the rest yielded slightly better results than using “Title Case.” We also recommend avoiding the use of spam filter-triggering words like “FREE” in the subject line and hyperlinks to optimize deliverability.
