This is EXACTLY WHY I distrusted the pay for play website Landscape Leadership. Just look at the latest email gimmick that I received ( below ).
I don’t know the person who is running this company and I wish him good luck with his business venture but I sure hope I will stop receiving Faxes to my office and emails to my business account to join his $ 179.00 a year website and his attempts to get me to endorse his website.
These types of letters do just the opposite. I will never endorse a website that I know nothing about and then phishes ( if that is the correct spelling for this scam trolling term ) for other people’s email addresses.
Dear Chris Heiler, I wish you the best of luck in your business venture but please remove me from your email list.
The editor of LandscapeLeadership.co, Chris Heiler, just sent me the link to your website at http://deviantdeziner.blogspot.com/. Chris thinks you’d be a perfect fit to join our Affiliate Program. Our program is a great way to earn recurring, passive income. This is not a gimmick and there is ABSOLUTELY NO COST INVOLVED.
What is an Affiliate Program and what's in it for me?
It's very simple. Website "A" (the Affiliate – that's you) agrees to endorse our website, LandscapeLeadership.com, by posting a link to our site, or banner ad, on your website or blog. Every time a visitor clicks on the link on your site and makes a purchase on our site, you get paid a commission. In this case, the commission is 50%! We've outlined all the details for your review in our Affiliate Program Handbook.
What's in it for LandscapeLeadership?
Again, it's very simple. By partnering with great folks like you through an Affiliate Program, we are able to keep our marketing costs down and grow our community. This is one of those rare but REAL win-win opportunities.
What is LandscapeLeadership.com?
LandscapeLeadership.com is a membership website specifically for residential landscape designers. It was started by Chris Heiler, who is a successful landscape designer located in Zeeland, Michigan. Chris is passionate about all things design and wanted to share his knowledge and "tools of the trade" with fellow designers and landscape architects.
He created a first-class online community at LandscapeLeadership.com. Members gain access to valuable resources including articles, podcasts and video tutorials. Every resource is designed to further develop the designer's skill set, create successful business strategies and promote and market the designer’s talent. There is also a Designer's Forum where members can exchange ideas, ask questions or just vent about that "special" client.
How much money can I make when I become an Affiliate?
We believe our affiliate program is one of the best because it's a service you can be proud to promote. And, of course, there's always the recurring income - - we offer our affiliates 50% commission.
Here's how the numbers work:
We offer a $15.00 monthly subscription plan. For every member signing up through your affiliate link, you will receive $7.50. If you sign up 10 members in one month you will earn $77.50 that month. As long as they remain members, you receive this income each month. That’s $930 a year for every 10 members.
What do I do next?
If you want to sign up for our affiliate program, visit our Affiliate Program page. You will also have the chance to watch an insightful video about our program. You may also Download the Affiliate Handbook. It's packed with every bit of information you need to make your decision as well as get started on your path to recurring, passive income with minimal effort.
If after watching the video and reviewing the handbook, you're still not sure, please don't hesitate to contact Chris personally. He's always ready and willing to take your call, answer any questions and discuss your future partnership with LandscapeLeadership.com.
Also, do not hesitate to let me know if you have any questions.
Happy Solstice 2014!
