Hello LockTrippers, i want to present one of my strategies here. Its about to introducing LockTrip and the affiliate marketing program to YouTubers or influencers. Iam already following a few travel related groups on different social media platfroms, where a few of the members regulary post some vlogs and share them with the group. Iam trying to contact them and ask them if they are interested to become a LockTrip affiliate after introducing and providing them with informations. I succsesfully could get the attention of a youtuber already. She is just at the beginning (about 1000 subs) of her youtube carreer but i think she make a really good job and fit perfectly with the content which she produce. And with the support of LockTrip´s affiliate program she can get even better. She worked as a hotel director before so she´s well informed about this business. She even could be a perfect candidate to onboard hotels directly through her connections that she has in the hotel business. Let´s see how well this strategy works out :)
There are two options in my mind:
1.Pay them directly for the promotion/reviewe video and let them add my own affiliate link/secret code
2.Let them register through my link and just get the level2 comission
In my case from above i let her sign up through my link. I think this will have a bigger impact on her motivation. She´ll also gets her own experience with the platform and get her own impression how amazing LockTrip is and how much money EVERYONE can save.
Not sure about the budged yet, it actually depend on the youtubers how much they will charge for the video/content and to add my own link. i guess it can vary a lot.
0$ budged if you´re happy just with the level2 comission, you just need to convience them about this great opportuntity to earn 3% comission.
Or give them a kickstart and offer them to book the hotel that gets reviewed (like i did in my case)
