Counting SALES LOYALTY and YOUR Bottomline Numbers
Phone sales are an interesting thing.
I’ll cut right to the chase…
If you’re doing affiliate marketing you should pay your affiliates for sales that call in.
Now, I’m aware there are a LOT of companies who are reading this and praying that you all stop reading now.
I urge you to read on as the companies you promote for SHOULD be loyal to you. If you’re driving traffic to the company and their products, shouldn’t you be credited no matter how the sale occurs…no matter what the extra cost to the company?
Absolutely, positiviely YES – No if’s, No but’s, No equivocation.
Gravy! takes on a whole new meaning!
Both my clients (Todd Mitchell and John Carter) go above and beyond to ensure ALL sales are tagged to affiliates FIRST.
During Todd’s last launch all phone sales were kept in a separate file that we went back through specifically to doublecheck to FIND affiliate tags…that effort netted affiliates another 21K in commissions! (and over 120k over all last year in ‘found’ affiliate payouts)
John just recently launched his “2013 Options Trading Advantage” Class. Yesterday he skyped me and told me “Brad…you cost me 30+K!!” I asked him what he was talking about… See, there were just over a dozen affiliates that participated, but on the night of the webinar EVERYONE made sales. John encouraged people to call in, and boy did they!
On Tuesday, he and his entire support staff spent the ENTIRE day combing through each and every phone order for the 2013 class launch. This effort, on behalf of the affiliates, netted an ADDITIONAL 30,000.00 in AFFILIATE COMMISSIONS!
Hey I’d be pissed too if I had to pay out an additional 30k…but he and Todd are the good ones. They KNOW that affiliates are part of their bigger business plans and not paying affiliates for phone sales is a sure way to alienate people.
An OUTSTANDING show of loyalty by two very good businesspeople. Do you agree?
Do you think it’s stupid and John should have kept that 30k?
Should Todd not have told his affiliates about the extra cash?
If you agree let me know…if you disagree prepare to defend yourself 😉
P.S. If you’re not an affiliate partner of John and Todd…correct that. These guys are the ONLY place you’re going to make good affiliate money, keep your affiliate money…and have loyalty shown to YOU!
