Now that we are well into the 2009 calendar year, how are those New Year’s resolutions coming along? Have you managed to lose any weight? Have you saved any money? Maybe one of your resolutions was to get your relationship status in order, finally hooking up with a serious significant other? If that was one of your resolutions, you certainly are not alone.
As such, this is a great time of year to make some money through well-targeted affiliate programs. From diet pills to debt reconciliation programs, you can earn some serious cash from people looking to better their lives. Anastasia International is one such organization and it wants to hook you up with hot girls. Over the course of this review, you may learn if they’re your kind of thing.
Who Is Anastasia International?
Looking at the main homepage for the Anastasia International affiliate program, it’s a little hard to tell right away what they are all about. Checking out the FAQ, we learn that Anastasia International is “the world’s largest International Introduction and Romance Tour Company.” In a nutshell, they connect their clients with “Ladies of the CIS.” It’s not exactly the same as a mail-order Russian bride service, but it’s not all that different either.
Three Affiliate Options to Make Money
As an online entrepreneur, you may not be afforded too many networking opportunities where you can find the woman of your dreams. I’m not exactly sure how effective Anastasia International may be in accomplishing that goal, but you can certainly try to cash in on the people who are willing to give it a try.
The online dating service has three affiliate programs.
With the first, you are paid a commission for every first order that a customer places. You start out with a commission rate of $150 per first sale and this ramps up to $200 and $250 when you reach 10 and 50 first sales, respectively.
With the second, you have the opportunity to earn recurring commissions based on how many “credits” your referred customers purchase. The Anastasia International correspondence system works on credits: each letter they receive or each video they view costs one credit. Commission rates with this program range from $1.50 to $125 per sale.
With either of these first two programs, you can choose to participate in the second tier program. This pays you a 10% commission for attracting new webmasters to the Anastasia International affiliate program.
Statistics for all of these are displayed via the reasonably robust administrator console:
Banners and Promotional Material
Along with regular text links and whatever other promotional methods you may want to attempt, Anastasia International also provides you with a huge range of banners, including 120×240, 300×250, 468×60, Flash, pop-ups, and XML feeds. Here are a couple of examples.
Not surprisingly, the Anastasia International ad banners attempt to use pretty women to entice potential customers. These are mostly going to be lonely guys who’ll be interested in
the Russian mail-order brides some womanly contact, so that only makes sense. Is this sleazy? That’s up to you to decide.
Hook Them Up and Get Paid
While the Internet may make it difficult to get the same level of face-to-face contact as we may have had in the past, it also provides a huge opportunity to meet women from around the world.
The website copy could use some serious work as some of its contents are strangely worded (e.g., “With our Per Each Order Program you can earn up to $125 Per Each Order”), but Anastasia International appears to have a sound affiliate program in place. Better still, it can be incredibly lucrative, paying as much as $250 for a single sale. Go ahead. Pimp them out, hook them up, and get paid in the process.
