Ideas for that Extra Income

Use the funds in any way you see fit.

If you are an individual Affiliate/Influencer:

  • Spread it out as a well deserved extra income source
  • pay a bill or two
  • pay down/off your credit card debt
  • pay down/off your car
  • pay rent
  • pay down/off your home
  • fund a vacation
  • the possibilities are endless

If your company is an Affiliate/Influencer:

  • apply the funds to business expenses
  • donate the funds to local LGBT non-profit charities
  • throw a great party for your employees or customers
  • it’s up to you

If your organization is an Ambassador:

  • Speak with your accountant on how best to categorize the funds.  Consider it a donation/stipend or income earned
  • Use the funds to fill in the gaps from your members’ donations
  • Use the funds to expand your community services
  • It’s up to you

Understanding last referrer associated

So, let’s say that we have an Affiliate 1 (John) and Affiliate_1 (John) shares a link. Now, visitor_1 clicks on the link, but they don’t sign up as a Yearly/Monthly Member that visit. 

54 days later, a second affiliate named Affiliate_2 (Suzzy) shares a link that the same visitor_1 clicks on and then at that time signs up as a Yearly/Monthly Member.  Affiliate_2 (Suzzy) will be attributed and associated with the new Member Subscription account.  Thus Affiliate _2 (Suzzy) will receive the commissions from visitor_1‘s subscription fees. 

It is therefore important if you are working to attract visitors to OutBüro that you follow up and do what you can to get them to become subscribed members as soon as possible. Engage them frequently to visit the site to keep your cookie active, more likely their last referrer, and ultimately become a subscribing member so that you get them as part of your Affiliate/Influencer Income Stream.
