This might be the easiest $1,000 you ever make! Simply by pointing someone (or many someones) in our direction, you could earn a $1,000 referral fee. That's right, just by having someone you refer visit our website or sign up for our newsletter, you could be on your way to an extra $1,000 in your pocket. Keep reading to see how.
We love it when people trust us enough to tell their friends, family and acquaintances about us. Of course our undying gratitude won't buy you a flight to Mexico or a new tv. So, we like to say thank you in a more practical way, with a referral fee of $1,000. For every person you send our way who eventually becomes an investment partner, we will send you a cheque for $1,000.
In short, just about anything! Send a new visitor to our website and they end up investing with us? Boom, $1,000! Have a friend subscribe to our newsletter and they eventually become an investor? Boom again! Another $1,000! Tell your Mother-in-law about a talk we're giving and she ends up investing with us? You guessed it, $1,000!
Basically, anyone you send to us in any way that can be traced back to you becomes "your" referral. We are constantly improving our on-boarding system for new potential partners so your referrals are often tied to you automatically but it never hurts to have your friends mention you when they contact us.
Everyone's biggest fear when they refer someone is that their friend will get pestered to death and the referral will hurt their relationship. We are not in the business of pestering people! We are going to treat the people you refer to us in the same way we treat you.
Our marketing strategy is education-based. Our goal is to provide authoritative, useful information on the topic of real estate investing. A constant theme in our content is that knowledge lowers risk and increases returns. Knowledgeable clients and potential clients make the best partners. Then, when people are ready to make an investment, they can make an informed choice and feel confident in their decision. Our hope is that they will choose to invest with us.
That being said, some people don't like receiving emails and other communication, so, we always include an unsubscribe link in our messages. If the people you refer don't want to hear from us, we leave them alone. It's that simple.
On the other hand, if people are benefiting from the information we send them, we will keep sending it. The opportunities we offer are not to be taken lightly. They involve significant amounts of money and most people take some time to get to know us before they invest. This is where our robust back-end (I know what you're picturing) helps you as an affiliate. Once your referral enters our system, we take care of the rest. It doesn't matter if it takes 3 months or three years, if that person EVER invests with us, BINGO, $1,000!
Are you starting to see the possibilities? Even a few casual introductions (of the right people) could put money in your pocket down the road. Wouldn't it be nice to get $1,000 out of the blue for someone you sent our way a couple of years ago?
How you take advantage of this opportunity is completely up to you. You can be totally casual and just refer the occasional person or you can build a full fledged business around finding potential investors (last year our highest paid affiliate earned over $40,000)! We are here to support you no matter how you want to approach this. That being said, there are a few things to keep in mind to maximize your chances of success.
There is clearly no point in sending people our way who are never going to invest in real estate. We only pay a referral fee when someone actually becomes an investment partner so telling your 16 year old nephew to find us doesn't make any sense (unless they are a YouTube millionaire). So what kinds of people are the best fit? Read on!
Hard working young families: Generally we're talking about a young couple with two incomes and maybe a kid or two. They are conscientious and hard working. They are busy and could use a bit of extra income at the end of the month. Maybe they own a rental property or have thought about rental income or other real estate investment opportunities. The idea of totally passive stream of extra income would appeal to them. We have options they might like.
Hard charging couples: They probably don't have any kids and are focused on their careers. They work hard and they play hard. An extra few hundred a month would pay for some nicer toys or meals out. They may have a few investments and might be looking to diversify their portfolio. Perhaps they've heard real estate might be a good option. We can show them how.
Older couples nearing retirement: They're getting ready to retire and are looking for ways to maximize their retirement income. Maybe they have RRSPs or other savings they are trying to make the most of. Perhaps they have rental property they are tired of managing. We can help them get the most out of their resources.
Professionals: Doctors, lawyers and others with significantly above average income. They may be looking for tax-advantaged ways to build wealth. Probably not interested in cash flow from rentals but like the idea of building equity in real estate. We have some very tax-friendly options.
Landlords: People who currently own rental properties. Maybe it's not the "passive" income stream they thought it would be. Perhaps they are dissatisfied with the returns they are seeing or the amount of work involved. Send them to us, we can help.
We are here to help in any way we can. Please, please, please take advantage of us! We have an ever-expanding library of resources for you to use in whatever marketing efforts you come up with. The more we can work together, the more successful we will be. Here are some of the ways we can help.
Marketing resources: Don't re-invent the wheel. We have brochures, videos, blogs, ad copy, newsletters and more. Just tell us what you are trying to promote and we can send you all kinds of supporting material and links.
Consultation and coaching: Need some help figuring out a strategy? Not sure how one of our programs work? Give us a call. We are happy to talk marketing anytime! If you're in town we can arrange a training session if it would help.
Personal Appearances: Found four or five potential investors? Arrange a get together and we will be happy to come and do a presentation. If you're close, heck, we'll come with you to a one-on-one if it looks promising.
Email support: We provide ongoing email communication to all our potential investment partners. When they are ready to pull the trigger, we are there. You don't have to do anything but wait.
Get Registered: As a registered affiliate you will be the first to know of any new investment opportunities. In addition, you will have access to resources not available to our more casual referrers such as Social media Ad copy, personalized landing pages and a monthly affiliate newsletter.
Maximize your potential earnings and take advantage of all we haveto offer.
