Most of the year I go about my business posting helpful tips and not asking anything in return. As we approach my “big season,” I’m going to ask my friends for a little help.
Although a lot of what I do involves blogging, legal tips, and industry advice, my primary revenue comes from Sunshine Rewards. It’s what keeps me in this business and gives me the time to do all of the “free” stuff I do like the blog posts, podcasts, speaking engagements, etc.
They say if you want something, you have to ask for it. So I am asking.
If you shop online, will you give Sunshine Rewards a chance this holiday season? You get $5 just for signing up. If you only use coupons, that’s great! We have coupons you can use to save yourself money (and help me make some). If you like getting cash back on your purchases, even better! I split all of my commissions with you.
If you are a blogger, will you consider promoting Sunshine Rewards? We don’t have an affiliate program, but we DO have a referral program. You get $5 when your referral hits $10 (and we start them with $5!). It’s an easy way for you to rack up money with just a post or a couple of social media mentions. Especially if you encourage them to get to that $10 mark with a couple of suggestions. If you are an affiliate marketer/blogger who already uses a lot of affiliate links and doesn’t want to cannibalize your own traffic, consider partnering with me on a white label site. It takes us about an hour to set it up. Our best example is PYD Rewards. Instead of having your shoppers go through other coupon/reward sites after reading your great content (and you lose the revenue), you can direct them through your own reward site where you and I split the revenue.
If you are a merchant or OPM, reach out to Ashleigh to see how we can work more closely together over the next 6 months to promote YOUR programs more. We have some easy ways to get you more exposure on our site and do not ask for placement fees.
If you are already a Sunshine Rewards member, bless you! We hope to bring you great deals and contests in the next 6 weeks. You can help us by sharing your referral link, interacting with us on social media and in the forum, and letting us know how we can better serve you.
If you are none of the above but just like me, tell a friend about Sunshine Rewards out of the goodness of your heart. A lot of people don’t even realize that they can get cash back by shopping online and they will lose out on a LOT of money this holiday season. Plus we have fun contests where they can win prizes. Even something simple like commenting on our Facebook Page is a big help!
Thanks for listening and even more for helping. As a small business owner, I rely on my reputation, customer service, and word of mouth to stay in business (10 years strong!!). That includes asking my friends for a little help sometimes.
