Caribbean Challenges


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!

Excellent work Cassie.
I remember doing an article on two Sth. American processors over 12 mths ago. Blue Snap and dLocal.
Talking about supply chain problems, DHL set up another 10 outlets around Colombia over the past 12 months.
Colombia doesn't have a national postal service, It is all DHL, FedX, or something called 472(?).
Regards,
Michael.

Wow!
That's incredible, Michael.

Nice surprise in the mail Cassi. I remember back in the days when the internet was just getting going.

I had a gambling site and that affiliate used to send cheques in the post in the post. Ironically as far as your post is concerned from Antigua !!!

Always a very pleasant surprise

All the best Steve

Oh yes, Antigua is an offshore finance hub so many of those gaming and gambling sites many their money from there.

Small world, eh?

Cassi

Yes Cassi
Turns out the world is a small place

All the best
Steve

The USPS leaves a lot to be desired here, too. Occasionally we get mail belonging one or two houses down the street, or mail addressed to 1234 Smith St delivered to 1234 Jones St (not real streets)....(smh, heavy sigh).

Congratulations on your success!!!

It happens sometimes, Joe.
The important thing is that it arrived and we can use them.

I hope you have settled in well in Florida.
Cassi

Yes, thank you, settled very nicely...I am truly blessed.

Very awesome, Cassi! I hope those checks had not expired yet! Blame the shortages and slow mail on the "crisis" perpetuated around the world! Hope you enjoy your dinners!

Jeff

I checked in with my bank this morning, Jeff and they are fine.
Deposit made!

Yes, the world is hurting because of this ongoing crisis.

We will enjoy our dinners.

Thank you.
Cassi

Whew! I'm glad to hear that, Cassi!

Jeff

We get what we deserve! :) Congratulations, what a wonderful surprise among the bills :)

It sure was, Julijana!

Thank you.
Cassi
