Hey everyone, I hope you're all having a fantastically productive day!
As the title says, I'M SOOOOOO EXCITED! I just had my first business meeting for my online business.
I applied to this company to join their affiliate programme - it's a perfect fit to both of my websites and a really exciting product range and affiliate model. They reviewed my sites, which I was a little worried about because they are not content rich yet but I'm very happy with the traffic building at the moment and I love the way they look and I'm working until stupid o'clock researching and writing to plump them up.
So a short while after my application went in they emailed to say they had reviewed my sites and would like a Zoom meeting this afternoon to discuss a plan. I've heard so much about Zoom but have never used it - I've always had to use Skype for business.
I had a shower, did my hair and make up so that I looked presentable and downloaded Zoom and waited eagerly in front of my Mac for the meeting to start. The guy was going to be calling from Los Angeles.
The time came and I logged on and I heard a voice in my ear - IT WAS AUDIO ONLY!!! Oh well, at least I look presentable to go to the local shop in a bit LOL!! How stupid did I feel? The guy had no idea what an effort I had made....
As I haven't actually had to discuss an affiliate program with anybody before because usually it seems to all be done on-line I was even more excited because it means they are serious about their company and their affiliates, but as I said, I was also a little anxious that I wouldn't be accepted.
Well what a nice guy. We spoke for 45 minutes - I explained my vision for my sites and my planned approach to get them to where I want them to be and he told me all about their programme and how they work with their affiliates to support whenever it's needed.
Then he welcomed me to the programme!! I'm in!!
And he gave me 80% discount on the full kit so that I can try it out fully and told me if I buy it through my own affiliate link I will actually make money because their affiliate commission is 40%.
I doubt if any of you are buzzing off this right now LOL but I am on cloud 9!
I can't wait to write the content for both sites and I'm going to launch onto FB and Pinterest using their Video links and social media creatives. I just want to crack on with it but my son keeps pestering me for his bike ride so unfortunately it will have to wait until this evening again.
As you know, my family and other half don't get this whole online business "thing" as they call it so my excitement meant nothing to them - in fact the words of my other half via text was "Great" LOL! It will never change!
So I had to shout about it on here because only you lovely people will get it! Only you guys will understand how happy I am with how it went.
I hope everybody is keeping safe and well and that you're all having a great day too!
