How AFFILIATE Marketing Paid Me $193.08 BACK-PAY Yesterday
Last Update: Oct 13, 2021
As Content & Affiliate Marketers, we struggle a lot in the Caribbean with choices for Affiliate Programs and receiving payment. Many cannot access PayPal for example and that means we either do not join programs or have to take the snail mail option for payment.
We are working on making some inroads but they will be medium to long term fixes. Payoneer seems to be a good option and I have started to research that again.
Sign Up And Link It
In March 2021, I did a random blog post on my personal development website and decided that I would place some advertising in it - just because. You should know me well by now. I play around with things and experiment to see what works for me.
This was an Affiliate Program that seemed appropriate for busy professionals and offered a way to organise their lives better. I had simply created my own ad in Canva and attached an Affiliate link to it.
I chose the option to receive my payments by cheque.
The Global Supply Chain Is In Backlog
I am not sure what is happening in your part of the world but in ours, we are feeling the effects of the lagging global supply chain. Snail mail is hurting badly!
Knowing this, I have not been checking for snail mail very regularly. More often than not, our mailbox gets jam-packed until someone points out that our mail is now being left on top of our mailbox.
Then, Zafirah happily bobs along with the key in hand to clear it out.
Affiliate Marketing Brings Joy In The Mail
Zafirah loves to receive mail. It is the anticipation that she will receive a letter or card from a family member or friend far away that excites her.
She went to the mailbox and brought back this pile of mail for me.
We adults know that it is mainly bills for us, so no excitement there. Little did I know however that there was a pleasant surprise waiting there for me.
As I started to look through my pile of mail, I noticed some strange looking envelopes. I was not familiar with the address. Eager to see what they were about, I opened them first.
And . . . what a joyous surprise for us yesterday when I realised that I had received Affiliate commissions from my experiment Affiliate link that I set up back in March 2021!
I raced over to the website, logged in and true enough, my link rewarded me with 2 sales in May 2021 and I had started to receive monthly commissions. My 3 cheques were for July, August and September.
Not bad for a surprise back-pay, wouldn't you say?
$193.08 US = $1,351.56 TT. That gives Zafirah and me a few lovely dinners, a lovely spa day or staycation or, a welcomed addition to our savings.
Make Sure You Are Using Your WA Membership Well
There is no doubt that our WA training, support and resources work. I am proof of that. After being in WA for 2 years, I have been able to build a consistent and sustainable income.
Now that I am in my Junior Year at WA University, I am building out my Content & Affiliate Marketing strategies. Success comes once you invest the time, effort and participation that is required.
Make sure that you do!
