Working Hard For Every Commission - Serving Your Customers
I do NOT like to hear the word "no".
I just had a situation where a potential customer was willing to optin and join a challenge that I was promoting that cost $7.
There was no option for them to pay with Paypal and they did not have a credit/debit card to use.
So I contacted the owner/promoter and asked if it was possible for my potential customer to pay via Paypal. They had money in their Paypal account and were eager to start the challenge.
After 3 business days with no response, I followed up and asked again.
I received a short reply that stated:
No we do not take PayPal for your challenge."
Didn't include the magic word, sorry. ;-)
So I sent another email asking if I could pay with my credit card to have them registered and I would have the potential customer pay me via Paypal.
They accepted that and I just needed to use the customer's email when paying.
I paid and have been paid by my now affiliate customer and I earned my hard earned $3.50 commission! :-)
I'm not going to tell a story about why more wasn't done initially to get the sale. That's wasted mental gymnastics.
I look at a little commission or royalty the same as a large one and I am grateful no matter what it is.
Now this new affiliate could go on and somehow buy a higher ticket program.
That would result in a $500 commission that would never have been a possibility if I didn't go the extra mile/kilometer and there will be other programs from this source to follow as well.
I just needed to be creative, refuse to accept the initial no, and go after a 2nd no or more.
Can you imagine what I considered doing if it was all no's?
Well eventually I will create my own programs/offers and affiliate program and cut the middle guy/gal right out of it.
But that takes time so its not going to happen for awhile.
Do I have a better relationship with my new affiliate? You bet! :-)
People are more than just a number or a commission for us to get.
We need to serve them.
That's my philosophy anyway.
To Our Success!
