Your job will be to sell â€œpage sponsorshipsâ€ to potential vendors. The â€œpage sponsorshipâ€ is actually nothing more then a banner ad, on top of the page(s) they sponsor. They will also be thanked on our friends page, receive an automatic email with there ad stats, and have access to our ad server for live ad stats. The prices ranges from $10-$30 a month per page (depending how many pages they sponsor). For every potential sponsor they refer to us who signs up, they will receive either a free ad in our newsletter or a free right side ad.
Potential vendors could include: craft stores, camping gear, amusement parks, museums, campgrounds, games, toys, embroidery, silk screening, first aid, fund-raising, and so on. We do have have a small list of potential vendors to get you going, however mostly you will need to get your own leads.
You will be paid a commission for every page you get sponsored. You can make thousands a month. Commission is residual, so as long as the page remains sponsored you will be paid a commission on that page - more pages you get sponsored the more you make. We pay through PayPal as a contractor on a agreed upon cycle.
