The Idea And The Vision
Approximately four months ago, one night while we were having our Power Blogging and Affiliate Community Focus meeting, I had mentioned to the group about seeing so many affiliate links not being credited to an affiliate marketer. In other words, if you go directly to the site (example; Amazon) and purchase something, a friend or someone you know who is a hard-working affiliate marketer loses out on any commission.
It is sad to see that so many affiliate marketers are hard at work and then lose commission, along with motivation. I don’t believe it is done intentionally but with a little education to your friends, family and online acquaintances, affiliate marketing and sales can begin to increase and thrive again, at least it is within our PAC site (Power Affiliate Club)
Lesly Federici and I talked a little more about it and decided we would create a site just for the sole purpose of our members to add valuable content, along with finally receiving pay for their hard work by the simple team effort of members buying from members.
Buying From Trusted Friends and Associates
In the process of building the site with articles, the members sometimes write about their experiences with a product. Now I don’t know about you but I would much rather buy something (especially if you work online) from someone who has used the product and/or service and writes an honest review that I can read before I buy. Another plus to this concept is that you can contact any of the members, if the article does not quite answer all of your questions.
After running a test site for a while to see if there truly was interest, the actual Power Affiliate Club.com site was created by Lesly Federici and maintained by Lesly and myself, Monna Ellithorpe. I manage the affiliate links in the rotator and do the updates.
Members Working as a Team
We have an awesome group of members who have volunteered to be expert authors to keep the site growing and active. If you have visited our site at any time or maybe you are acquainted with Lesly or myself or any of the PAC site members, then you are already aware of our intentions and goals in sustaining the longevity and daily building of the site you see now.
I thought I would share some of the stats we are seeing, in terms of traffic and the increase in traffic and interest to our site in the few short months that we have been online.
As of August 20, 2014, we have approximately 67 rotators in place with affiliate links for all kinds of products and services; Power Affiliate Club Shopping with more being added each day.
As you can see in the statistic reports received, first from the test site during the week of July 21 through July 27, 2014, we were doing very well with people checking us out, probably from curiosity. We had a little drop in traffic during the week of August 11 to August 17, 2014 while moving to the new site. On the last report we received, also dated August 11 to August 17, 2014, the numbers are quite impressive for such a new site.
I know stats are boring but I wanted to show “YOU” the members that the valuable time and effort that you are putting into the growth of the site is well worth it and I am proud to be a part of such a group of caring people who see the vision to help others, is to also help themselves.
This Team Is AWESOME…
To your success,
