It has been a few months since I last update you all on my progress with Submission Works, so I decided this was as good a time as any to let you all know what is going on. Let me just start by saying that this has been the best summer that I have had in years. Part of that is because the weather has been great in my part of the world, but the main reason is because I have actually had some money to go and do some fun things during the summer months. I was always lucky if I was able to scrape up enough money for a couple of days at the beach, but this summer I was able to take some of the money I have made through internet marketing and turn that into a week-long trip, staying at a hotel I would normally have driven passed because of the number of stars in the review.
I guess I don’t have to tell you that I am still experiencing a great deal of success using Submission Works, but what I do have to tell you about is how it has given me another revenue stream that I hadn’t really thought about at the start. When I first started with Submission Works, one of my biggest concerns was that it wouldn’t hold up over the long haul. I have heard horror stories about programs that start out strong, but which end up doing nothing but draining your money the longer you stay with them.
This has proven NOT to be the case with SW, and it’s actually fair to say that my success with the program has actually improved with age. It got to a point where I wanted to climb on the rooftops and tell everyone about this program. I figured if I was going to make that climb, I should at least make some money while doing it. That was why I decided to try and take advantage of the Submission Works affiliate program. I figured if I was going to bring people into the program, why not try and create a revenue stream out of it.
When you sign up with Submission Works you are given an affiliate link that you can use to promote the program. Rather than simply just plugging that link into the system, I decided to create a fairly basic splash page that outlined the details of the program. It was the URL for that page that I put into the software, figuring that even if people didn’t sign up for the program, I would still have their opt-in information that I could then add to my mailing list. The results were exactly as I had hoped, with both my mailing list and the number of people I got to sign up with Submission Works better than I expected. I have now created another revenue stream that will continue to pay me as long as those folks stay members. If they experience the same type of success I have, that is revenue that could last a lifetime.
