Here is an example of a partner who doesn’t make a huge sum from us through our offer promotions but has managed to earn almost $2400 in the past six months by simply referring others to our program.
For privacy purposes, we cannot disclose this partner’s name, but we guarantee that this case study is genuine. The partner will be referred to as Partner X.
How did Partner X generate more than $2k in 6 months without promoting a single offer? He considered his business contacts, site users, family, and friends, and sent them a simple pitch via email. Through one well-crafted email and a few follow-up messages, he has gotten 22 of his contacts to sign up to the RevResponse program. Twenty-one of those contacts were approved as partners. And through the promotions of those 21 referrals, Partner X has passively earned a pretty penny from us.
Partner X joined with RevResponse in April of 2009. He generated around $30 a month in earnings for his first few months as a partner. After learning how the program worked and the potential it had, he decided to share his knowledge with his business contacts. Partner X reached out to Daniel Frignito, his RevResponse account manager, to let him know of his plan to tackle the referral side of RevResponse. Together they crafted an email that he would send to his contacts utilizing his referral code.
Here is the email that Partner X sent to his contact (some edits have been made to protect the partner’s privacy):
I have been working with TradePub for the last few months and with the help of their partner program, RevResponse.com, I have been able to monetize my newsletter, LinkedIn Group and website all by providing my readers with free business resources (they are completely free and no credit card is needed). I thought you would also be interested in their partner program to help you generate additional revenue while at the same time adding more value back to your audience. Currently RevResponse provides me with all the creative's, suggestions, and support necessary to be successful. The unique aspect of the partnership is they will help me to build a co-branded site at no charge that allows me to seamlessly provide these free resources to my audience without directly them away from my brand (unlike Google Adsense and other ad networks)... below is a link to the co-branded site that has been given to me through the partnership to give you an idea of what can be done with their program.
Partner X includes a link to his co-branded content resource center which had been customized by using the Co-branded Site Wizard.
I have been working with the RevResponse program and wanted to introduce it to you because I feel that it can also help you monetize your website, newsletter and LinkedIn group. So far it has been a profitable relationship and the service and attention I get is excellent. You can quickly read up on the RevResponse here (link to RevResponse.com with Partner X referral code. Their site provides information regarding their program and how it works. If you have any questions for me feel free to contact me as well.
Partner X continues to reach out to his business contacts when he believes that their sites and niches could fit within the RevResponse program. He is paid 20% of the earnings that these referred partner generate within our program. By participating in the RevResponse referral program, Partner X simply sends a few emails to relevant contacts, follows-up with them if they have questions, and watches his earnings grow through their efforts.
The case of Partner X is an example of how RevResponse partners can earn easy revenue through our referral program.
