Recruiting Affiliates Online
Since I am just now really starting a journey to conquer, or at least ride on the back of, affiliate marketing I have been noticing more and more ways people try to recruit experts or contributors to help them get to the space they need to be found in. Interestingly enough the most blatant attempt at recruiting me was a fail at least in the case of me. It did give me a great idea though and I will work on how to use it to my advantage over the coming days.
Foursquare is no secret and millions of people around the world use it. I have used Foursquare for a couple of years and looked for ways to use it for personal gain or the gain of my clients with limited success. After what I found on Twitter today I may have found a way to use it for recruiting through harvesting instead of for broadcasting. Even though the people who sent a recruitment tweet to me missed their mark I did find it non-invasive, with a good deal of tact and likely a realistic opportunity for them to engage some people who will contribute to their efforts and result in a win for them.
For those who know me it would be laughable for me to be called a travel expert since the most travelling I do is to speak at events or to visit family, the latter being rare and the former being too often sometimes! That said I received the twitter in the image today and though I am a far cry from anyone who should be contributing I found it engaging and worthy of mention.
How would you use existing social networks for recruiting experts to contribute to your work?
