OMG $1000 per day now this is smart affiliate marketing
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.
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).
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.
following with interest cheers Tracey
