Signing Up As A Paid Gold Member Of ...

REMEMBER!:  The upgraded membership you want is the
"Gold" for $14.95 / month.
We also recommend that you read through these instructions once or twice BEFORE you begin the signup process, in order to familiarize yourself with them.

Step 1:

Click on the Herculist hotlink on your Sponsor's Signup Module.

You will be taken to the home page of your sponsor's Herculist website.

Step 2:

Click the green-outlined button in the upper right corner of the page, labeled "Signup"  (Note"  Upon completion of the signup procedure, your commission account will be credited with a five dollar "signup bonus!")

On the "Create Account" page enter the information requested in the spaces provided:

  • Enter your first name
  • Enter your last name
  • Do not enter anything into the block labeled "Your Website"
  • Enter your choice of a username (do not use spaces or upper case letters)
  • Enter your choice of a password (do not use spaces or upper case letters)
  • Re-enter (Confirm) your choice of a password a second time
  • In the block labeled "Subscribe Email (Required)" enter your Primary email (Gmail) address.
  • Check the small block to the left of the text stating, "Click to use the same email for both subscribed and main addresses."  [Note:  Herculist is unique in that they permit you to use ONE email address for both your Primary ("Subscribe") AND Secondary ("Main") email addresses.]
  • If the block labeled "Main Email (Required)" does NOT automatically fill in after you check the block in the above step, enter your Primary email address yourself.
  • Make sure you check the small "Click if you agree with the Herculist terms of service" box
  • Finally, click the oval blue "Create Account" button

Step 3:

Open your Primary email inbox.

You will have received a confirmation email from the home office of Herculist.  Open this email and click the "confirmation" (or "verification") link.  (Note:  If this "confirm" link does not appear "clickable," just copy and paste it into your browser's address bar to confirm.

(Now, then... Although your membership has been confirmed ("verified"), you have not yet PAID for it.  In other words, at this point you are still only a FREE memberYou will need to upgrade to the PAID Gold membership for $14.95 per month...)

 After clicking the confirmation link, you SHOULD be automatically redirected to the "Choose a Herculist membership option below" page, where you can immediately purchase your membership - quick and easy!  You will see three charts displaying the benefits of all three membership types.

The one you want of course, is the "Gold Membership"

Click the gold-outlined button directly under the title, labeled "Upgrade"

Step 4:

A pop-up window will open in the middle of the page displaying the three subscription options.

Any Available Discounts?  You BETCHA!

Ordinarily, the monthly Gold membership costs $14.95.  You will note in the pop-up window. however, that some amazing discounts are temporarily available:  The monthly subscription is just $9.00, the annual subscription is just $39.00, and there is a LIFETIME subscription available for $69.00.

These ARE excellent discounts!  Just remember that you have several OTHER programs to join!  It may be in your best interests to go with the MONTHLY upgrade, to make it easier to budget your funds.
Most people DO take
the monthly option.

Choose your desired mode of payment (either monthly, yearly, or lifetime), click the appropriate payment area to subscribe with a credit/debit card, and complete your purchase of the Gold Membership.

(You SHOULD be automatically redirected to the Herculist Members Area after completing your purchase.  If you are not, just return to the Home Page at:, and login to the Member's Area with your username and password.)

Step 5:  (Important Side Note)

Donít let yourself get distracted by the sometimes constant barrage of advertising offers to which most website owners subject you during your initial login!

You can skip these initial offers by scrolling down to the bottom of each advertisement, or very near the bottom of each advertisement, until you see a hotlink stating,  "No, thanks. Just send me to __________ Member's Area" or "Click here to skip this advertisement" or "Click Here to Proceed to Your Account",or "Click Here to Skip This Recommendation" or something similar.

Click on one of those hotlinks to continue.

You may ALSO be introduced to what are called "LogIn Ads" or "Sponsor Ads"  These are full-page ads that are ads from members (NOT the website owner), that do NOT have that "No Thanks" link at the bottom.  Instead, they will have either a "No Thanks" link at the top of the page, above the ad, or a countdown timer.  After the countdown timer counts down to "0" click the "Go To Members Area" hotlink you will see after the timer counts down to zero.

Eventually, however..... you will be on the "Members Area" Page.

Step 6:

Maybe you MISSED the upgrade your first time through the site.  NO WORRIES!  Just click the hotlink at the top of the page, labeled "Home"  You will probably be subjected to one of those full-page Sponsor Ads we warned you about in Step 5, above.  If you are, just click the "X" in the upper left corner of the ad.  This will take you to the "Members Area" page.

In the upper left area of this page, click the blue-outlined link, labeled "Free Membership (Upgrade Account)", and you will be taken to the upgrade page.

Step 7:  What your username, password, reseller URL, and reseller ID will look like:

Your username and password are what you use to login to the Herculist site. and were both chosen by you during the signup process.

Your reseller ID is ALSO your username, and is at the end of your reseller URL.  For example, if you chose "hotdog" as your username during the signup process, your Herculist reseller URL would look like this:

...and your reseller ID would be:  hotdog

How to get your reseller URL?  Back on the main "Members Area" page, you will find your Reseller URL directly under the text stating, "Your Herculist Affiliate URL," toward the middle of the left side of the page.

Make SURE you have your.....

  1. username  (chosen by you during signup)

  2. password,   (chosen by you during signup)

  3. reseller URL, and

  4. reseller ID:  (This is also your username which you CHOSE during the signup process, is at the end of your reseller URL, and is what you will eventually submit to the Big Dogs Home Office with your Alpha Dog IDs.) 

.....and enter all four items onto your Master Information Sheet.
