After trying everthing MailChimp to Aweber and a half dozen others in between I have finally settled on TrafficWave. It is a flat rate autoresponder that includes an affiliate program.
Most autoresponders charged based on the size of your mailing list. What you are charged escalates quickly depending on the size of your list, so it is important to have products to promote before starting to build a list.
The flat rate payment plan used by TrafficWave makes it possible for me to grow my list while maintaining an affordable advertising budget.
TrafficWave's affiliate program is actually an MLM using a 10 level matrix.
Now, before you run away, there is nothing wrong with an MLM business model providing the products sold by the MLM are quality products and are priceed competitiviy. In 40 years of messing wiith MLMs, I have only found two that qualify. I have learned that if an MLM emphasizes recruiting over sales it is a scam. The problem with most MLMs is unscrupulouis leader will ask you to "stock your store." If anyone asks you to buy more inventory than you know you can sell in three months, you are dealing with an unscroupulous leader.
Like most matrix pay programs, TWs matrix is set up so the big money is made in the last three levels. Most people never fill their third level so theiir dream of MLM riches dies long before they reach their goal.
My motivation to use TW is the flate rate pay schedule. To make the TW affiliate program worth while I will have to build a downline team of enthusiastic team builders to recruit TW customers. My emphasis in working with any matrix pay program is to help people in my first three levels fill their first three levels.
There is no way I can create the nearly 86,000 customers required to fill my 10th level. I can only do it by building a team.
True Affiliate Marketers are sales reps for the company they represent. They get a commission on sales. Many Independent diistributers for MLM companies are calling themseslves Affiliate Marketers because of the bad reputation MLM marketing has. It is important you know the differance.
My next post will discuss the many ways we can make money on line.
