Something amazing happened at TimTech last week. We hit a milestone, I didn’t think we would have this early in our companies history. For months, we have been paying well over $1000 a week in affiliate commissions. This was such an amazing number and really cemented our belief in the ‘evergreen’ affiliate product plan.
We caught a lot of heat for making our commission rate 30% across the board. We lost ‘friends’ because of it, we were told that we were crazy, that our business model would fail and well, that we were generally the worst thing to ever happen to traffic exchanges…
Last week we paid out $2427.43 in affiliate commissions.
That means our affiliates received the highest amount ever from TimTech and here’s the best part. We did it without launching a new program. We didn’t do it with ‘JV’ accounts. We didn’t do it with email pitches. The members did it. All we did was provide the services.
This is what happens when you put people before profits. When you understand the real power in business is not from a flashy OTO or a catchy video…But from people. And the community.
That was the BEST way we could have started 2012 and we are so pumped up for the year ahead. We promise to make our members the focal part of our business and the community to be the center piece of our brand. We have lofty goals now…We’re shooting for $3000 a week in affiliate commissions as an average by the end of the year.
Evergreen products and +1 everyday….It works!
