OMG $1000 per day now this is smart affiliate marketing

Last Update: February 24, 2017

Just a quick Hello Friends: For those who know me, and my profile I have a working hostel in New Zealand and have helped thousands of young travellers find work for free while they stay in our hostel. Well around October 10 every year we get busy with new travellers especially from Europe, and new work so I have been busy extremely off-line working around 7 am - 11 pm for the past 2 weeks.

This peek period and higher than usual traffic is common for this time of year, however this year I have decided to me smarter and to help even more people and put a small value on the fantastic service I can offer. My message here is to not undervalue the "value" of the product or service" you can offer to someone, find the s"solution to a problem" then find the reasonable value that can be attributed to that product or service. Then market to your Niche market.

[edit - the s"solution - was initially a typo..... but I actually like the "SMART SOLUTION" that it can also imply...]

Background: Not understanding Affiliate Marketing, I discovered since joining WA that I have actually been doing it for years... the dumb way! You see for years I have been helping young international travellers find work so they can stay longer in our hostel, the longer they stay working the more money they make, the more money I make. (when they continue to stay in our hostel paying around NZ$20 per night).. and the employers I network with are happy to get their jobs done in a timely manner. WIN - WIN - WIN... so what's the problem with that... up till now we have been doing this networking and service thing for FREE - this is very dumb affiliate marketing! Don't get me wrong the hostel business is good, love 'most' of the people and we turnover 6 figure annually - but it is totally reliant on the efforts my husband and I put in every day 24/7 we are tied to the millstone and see no way to escape the daily grind.

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/4goodbuy/blog/sorr...

My update so far: I wrote the above post to explain to my followers here at WA what I was doing and why I may appear not as active here at WA. Well 10 days after writing this post my hostel was fully booked till Christmas and some through January. Pleased to report that every young traveller is into seasonal work each earning around NZ$700 - $1000 per week.

Job done - Using momentum to achieve even more: Usually at that time I can relax and just take care of running our hostel. However this year I have used the skills learned from WA and adopted the affiliate marketing principles and expanded my Job Finding Service and instead of for FREE people actually pay now for my service. Results since the 19th - 23rd only five days I have helped dozens of additional people (people who do not stay in our hostel) into a job my personal goal to get then started in work within 1 - 3 days most are starting within 1 day. So by my helping others into a job to start within 1 - 3 days - honest jobs working around 8 - 10 hours per day where they can earn around $700 - $1000+ per week... who is happy now? - EVERYONE!

Financial Success: Now with this new enterprise I have now been turning over an average of NZ$1000 per day for the past 5 days. This is using the momentum of the previous and current marketing activities, which is still NOT yet fully optimised but is already showing great results. The lesson or message here is search and you can find; when you find a wave ride it, use momentum and be prepared to work hard, find ways to help others achieve what they want to achieve. leverage this to help achieve what you want to achieve as well so then everyone wins.

The Future: I do not expect this $1000 per day turnover to continue on a daily basis, this may last only a few weeks. What I have shown is the ability to look for a trend and to leverage from the ability to help people find a solution to a problem to achieve what they want and to generate an additional income stream for your self. My next step is to move this new product / service online to find better ways to use the marketing skills used here from WA.

Thank you all for your support and encouragement, I have finally actually written a post today for social media, is also a page in my website of course; this is not spam folks... purely for info if anyone is interested to view (any comments are always welcomed).

http://tepukebackpackers.com/kiwifruit-summer-bud-...

Edit ONE MONTH on - OK so thought it best if I report my first month of this new service so ok I hit the road running in the first 5 days and did not continue to maintain $1000 per day turnover. However I am happy to report that in the past month that, yes in 30 days my turnover was NZ$14400 in additional revenue - Thanks to the Wealthy Affiliates principles and confidence gained in my first 3 months of being a WA member and Wealthy Affiliate Entrapreneur.

Update Jan 2016 - those who know me will also know that I have not been as active in the WA community reflected in my ranking 100 => 227 but I am still here! Powering away with loads of ideas building my networks & businesses... and communities. The Job Finding Service is moving to another level and yes has plateaued the last 2 months but we are building to another Peak season for work so I'm collaborating with others to create something even better. will keep you posted.

In the meantime my interest in everything Kiwi (aka New Zealand) and cruising has encouraged me to create a Facebook group / community again motivated and guided in the principles I see here and love so much about the WA community. Of course an of my friends are most welcome to visit and say Hi...We even have our first Meet and Greet today - hopefully I will take a chance and add to my blog roll https://www.facebook.com/groups/1475590539412171/

EDIT - One year on now February 2017 and although I have not been as 'active' here at WA as shown in my rankings 200 => 1615 I have been busy still building my busineses, I am now working more seriously at building my new website www.seasonalworkerz.com with the help of all the tools and expertize available right here at WA so with some luchk I may have online services availabe very soon.

It is nice to track the progress you have made over time. I like the mixing of offline and online activities, I am in much the same position.

We have warehouses in Germany and Thailand, employees (and partners) now in Dubai, Nepal, the Philippines, Thailand, and Germany...

Meanwhile, the stuff we are building online supports these activities - I am talking websites, e-commerce stores, and membership sites...

On top of that, we are also providing tools for marketing for ourselves and partners....Here to mention a few I am talking about tracking tools, graphics support, affiliate and drop shipping support, training, etc.

Lots of fun! I know what you mean on the ranking here, it really makes no difference when it comes to making money, it is more how much time you have to contribute here...

In my case, I do spend as much time as possible, but it is getting harder as the pace of external activities increases. I want to be here, but work calls!

Cheers!

I have created a site for college students who are interested in earning money.
I love this great blog and look foreward to hearing more!
Funny, I found these things when I was scrolling through my profile blog, back to the beginning.
Since then, I've changed my niche, and now, rediscovered this!
BTW the Kiwi travel site is loading slowly, could be my browser, though......
So great to meet ( re-meet?) you, Tracey!

Cheers,
Therese

Hi there Therese, great to hear from you again, hope things are working out well for you. You have chosen a great niche... Everyone knows that the secret to a great niche is to "find a problem then show the solution to those people who are in search of a solution to the problem" everyone knows that college students are always searching for more ways to make money while studying. Thanks for pointing out the Kiwicruiser site appears to be loading slowly, I will check i out. I've just returned from my first trip to Los Angeles, (just a quick break away only 8 days but absolutely loved Disneyland, Universal Studios especially Harry Potters world we took our 3 youngest) and now have to re-focus my efforts to building my websites and businesses. I am hoping to use some material gathered to continue to build my Kiwicruiser site. But right now I have to work on building up our backpackers and finding work for our international working holiday makers. Many of them are fresh out of overseas colleges and some taking an overseas experience before settling into college, so our target market are rather similar.

I checked out your website and guess it is fairly new (mine are all works in progress) - I would prefer seeing your menu across on one line which would save space and allow you to use the landing space to open on an attention seeking 'hook' to keep the visitor engaged long enough to confirm that they have arrived to the right place... and be more engaged to actually scroll through your site. This was just a first impression of landing on your home page... college students would probably prefer to see real college students doing something they can identify with... and clickable 'calls to action' hope this is helpful, wishing you all the very best, following with interest, cheers Tracey

Hi there Micheal, hey thanks for stopping by and leaving such a nice message, having a read of your profile I see you are as much a 'mixed bag' as I am. I can add snorkeling, ballroom dancing and a few other activities I can add to my list. My secret to risk of burn out is... to tackle yet another 'project' - hahaha - Yes my hubby thinks / knows I am mad, but hey we have but one shot of life so why not give it what we have while we have it eh.
I may well come back to you for a few solutions to problems I run into along the way so you are welcome to find and make professional connection. My biggest problem right now is that I missed my first year renewal, and it appears my email has dropped off from Outlook (and I'm still running with 2003 Outlook)... this is my area of weakness. Anyway I would love to hear how your first year with WA has been and wish you the absolute best of luck with all you are doing. Following with interest your new colleague Tracey

Do tell me more... are you travelling on working holiday visa and looking to pick up seasonal work to help fund your travels? or planning on a tourist holiday? I love everything Kiwi and cruising so one of my other sites is www.kiwicruiser.com and corresponding Facebook group Kiwi Cruising Solo - NZ and the world, this incorporates my love and passion for both cruising and all things Kiwi... All these websites etc are the result of what I have learned here at WA. Take positive action every day and you can achieve anything the key is to help others achieve what they want to achieve.

That is such a fabulous niche market you have there! I know when I was a backpacker I needed all the help I could get!
I am very new to WA (just 3 days in!) may I ask.....have you made this income from the affiliations on your website? I feel like I need some inspiration to help me continue and also sign up to the premium....if I sign up for one more thing that doesn't bring in some income I think my Kiwi hubby will "knock me on the head" (joke!)
Thanks Tracey!

Hi there Kat, lovely to virtually meet you, where in NZ are you? You hit the nail on the head about "needing all the help I could get" that is the secret with WA. So long as you have the 'entrepreneurial spirit' and a 'dig in and just do it attitude' topped off with 'positive action' then you can / will succeed.

The key is to "help others ~ create 'value' and monetize"

I see this platform as a tool box that we can pick and choose the 'tools' that may help us achieve what we 'want to achieve'
My best advice is to maximize these first 7 days free look and see learn what you can. See how much this program , and even more value is the phenomenal community, I have saved so much blood sweat, tears and money by asking for and receiving help - for FREE right here. Going premium is a no brainer - the best few dollars I ever spent for anything Just the other day I spent $400 for my yearly subscription to backpackerboard.co.nz to advertise my backpacker business & job listings. WA subscription offers a whole lot more than simply advertising, it offers the true opportunity to create a business, from hobby interests, small home enterprises or even large dynamic enterprises that can be later sold like 'trademe.co.nz' or any other business that can be created.

What you make and do with this is entirely up to you, no one will be breathing down your neck, telling you do this! do that.! Buy more!
Well done for opening this door, what you do with it is entirely up to you and your why and what you hope to achieve.
Congratulations on coming this far, I would encourage you to go all the way - following with interest Tracey

I really enjoyed reading about your success in linking the principles and confidence you've gained with WA with your hostel operation!

I was first interested in WA for the same reason, i.e., to learn more about online marketing, SEO, WordPress, etc. in connection with another business. I find that WA spurs a great deal of creative entrepreneurial thought, and what you've accomplished has truly been phenomenal. Best of all, it sounds like your operation is truly a win-win for everybody!

Hiya John, You also have an interesting profile - home can be where you put your hat eh. I live in Te Puke a small town in the Bay of Plenty, New Zealand world famous for being the Kiwifruit Capital of the World so naturally we have a lot of seasonal casual jobs just perfect for international backpacking travelers... It has been really busy here the past few months so I've not been able to offer as much time online here with WA... But I am still building and continuously developing my other websites www.kiwicruiser.com and building up a Facebook group dedicated for "Kiwi Solo Cruisers - NZ & the World" with the help of what I have and am still learning with the help of WA and the community of like minded members and new friends & followers like you https://www.facebook.com/groups/1475590539412171/

Hi there Alex,
Hey thanks for the follow and encouraging comments - at 29 you 'fit' our 18 - 35 yr old working holiday backpacking market group, so of course you are most welcome to come visit us here in Te Puke, in New Zealand www.tepukebackpackers.com if that is to Meet, Stay, Work or Play here we have it all...
Hey sometimes we only have enough work for the people who prefer to stay in our hostel so if they stay in our hostel we still offer the Job Finding Service for Free, but now during the times when we have more jobs than we have beds - I will be offering the "Fee Paying Job Finding Service" I'm just loving the WA community and interested to hear more from you as I am interested to hear what marketing works or what would work for our backpacking travelers as I am surprised I haven't found more backpackers signing up with WA. following with interest cheers Tracey

Well the unique thing I have discovered about the training here in WA is that we are NOT being conditioned or 'programmed' to be the same... robotic duplications of the ones gone before - instead we are encouraged to be free thinking individuals to ... take our lessons and take positive action to wards our own goals - whatever they may be... what ever 'pace' we set for ourselves - there is no race at all - the slowest tortoise here can in fact win - so long as they are always moving towards their goals.

By the way I must get back to the training sometime soon - I only got up to level 3... so I have a whole lot yet to learn... IMAGINE what could possibly be achieved with even more training??? following with interest cheers Tracey

Thank you my dear friend - see I was not actually leaving WA when I wrote my last post - just not as active here in the 'chatter'... my ultimate goal is to turn these lessons into producing serious "passive income" ... taking positive action every day. cheers Tracey

Hiya, yeas was for only a few days has slowed some what the past few days but now that gives me time to find few more social media groups and get the word out there so today and the next few days may be busier - until all the jobs are filled of course. After 2 - 3 weeks things will plateau out... but that will hopefully give me more time to focus on few other things.

Taking positive action everyday, cheers Tracey

always the best motto: help others to succeed and you will too!
Great job that you are leverage that. Have you thought of doing a website solely for solving that problem? Promote your hostel and your job finding skills....
Reply
4GoodBuy Premium
Thanks I definitely believe the ultimate key to success is to help others. I am interested to learn more about your suggestion of doing a website solely for solving that problem? - what / which problem are you referring to?
Reply
Dinh Premium
It looks like there is a need for matching the people who stay at your hostel looking for work adn those looking for them. You could do a site promoting your hostel (why stay at your hostel, info on local area, places of interest etc) and then offering your services for finding them work (you get fee for them staying at the hostel and also fee for job match) win win for both. It's like what you have been doing but just promote it on your website.
I bet you'll get more people staying at the hostel...just my thought.
Reply
4GoodBuy Premium
do you mean running a separate website - for the job finding service and called something completely different, like say www.kiwijobs.com I already have a hostel website. Would I be better to create a site within the hostel site??? following with interest

I am so happy to see what you've accomplished! It never ceases to amaze me how WA helps people with a creative mind utilize their full potential even when that particular mind still can't see the bigger picture. Thank you for appreciating that to its fullest for yourself so you can do the same for others in an even bigger way you now know is possible. Great work!

Thank you, It is so funny - I have business associates who also have similar "working hostels" in similar general region 30 kms away, who are... errrr... a tad upset with my new 'systems' of helping travelers. They (my business associates) just don't 'get it', and are worried that my new systems is creating an uncomfortable form of competition for them that people are wanting to leave their hostel to take up my service... to stay free or cheep somewhere else.

This argument does not stack up for me, I give people a choice they can now 'choose to stay in our hostel' for 8+ weeks and have the equal $$$ sum as a refundable Bond, or pay fee and stay somewhere else. Our hostel is full and we have waiting list for people begging to stay... when beds come available.

... of course not everyone is prepared to 'pay a fee to get a job' but I'm sure is I was travelling in a foreign area for a limited period of time, I would want the 'best local knowledge and connections' that would benefit me fast I would jump at the deal.

I was a bit worried about sharing as I'm not one who likes to gloat, - my message here I hope is inspiring, my intention is to encourage - anyone can take a leaf my experience and apply to their own ideas to keep working toward their goals. This has not been without blood sweat n tears to get to this point... people - passion - purpose - perseverance - produce results! cheers Tracey

No worries there! Your message doesn't come across at all like gloating. It comes across as another creative and successful way of applying the knowledge and inspiration from WA to make your own business run prosperous and help alot of other people too! I think it's really wonderful!

Absolutely - a few weeks ago (following our 2 - 3 month low/dead season) our business account dropped down to 3K which is nothing when the mortgage alone is around 9K a month... we can only sell a limited number of beds so when we are fully occupied our income is limited - Not with affiliate marketing..... oh noooo... this is the ultimate - finding ways to create more unlimited income streams to achieve my personal goal of "Financial Freedom" still working on my other website www.freemesoon.com where I am of course also promoting of course WA...

Thanks Rosie, and I expected my "ranking" to drop as well since I have not been so active here at WA - however I have actually increased my ranking from 98 to 87 in this past week.... gosh I'm so highlky motivated right now and have so many post ideas going on in my head right now... but I just got off the phone from more employers who are desperate for more workers now for the next 2 weeks, so I'm riding this wave a bit longer. cheers Tracey
