TIP OF THE MONTH

Get Social! Spread the Word!

If you haven’t heard the term "Social Media" at any time in the past 8 months you have been living on another planet. Sure, the name itself sort of eludes to a big waste of time, but I’m telling you there are several affiliate marketers using social media to spread the word and earn, right now. You can too!

I don’t recommend jumping into social media head first, rather I suggest starting with the two largest social media platforms, which most of the world is already on. I’m talking about Twitter and Facebook. Yes, there are plenty of other social media platforms, but these are the two you should begin learning how to participate on and engage your audience.

Don’t wait another second, go secure your name on these social media platforms.

Once you’ve done this, contact us via email with the Subject: I want some Twitter and Facebook Tips for Affiliates. Likewise, be sure to subscribe to our blog’s RSS feed to keep yourself up to date. We’ll be adding posts on affiliate tips and tricks, including those related to Twitter and Facebook.

We look forward to speaking with you soon!

Why do some phone cards become discontinued?

While we attempt to create a hi-quality, revenue producing line of phone cards, there will be instances in which the cards perceived to be winners simply end up being losers for reasons other than poor performance.

Carriers create phone cards by anticipating usage and profit. They may also incorporate additional fees (e.g. maintenance fees, connection fees) in attempt to make more of a profit. Knowing this, the savvy phone card consumer attempts to discover ways to get maximum usage from a phone card. One such way is to purchase in smaller denominations and burn the card in one call, thereby avoiding the other fees. Thus, the carrier does not receive the additionally anticipated profit. Result… the card is withdrawn. In worse cases, a heavy loss because a carrier to cease business.

Therefore, we must continue to seek alternative products. We’ll do our best to convey these changes to you as promptly as possible!
