Provirtua has been offering ‘Done for You’ services at reasonable prices for 15 years. A common question I get asked is how do you keep your fees low? And how do you offer free resources and still make ends meet?
It’s true, one of my main goals is to provide a free resource for those who can’t afford ‘Done for You’ services (or simply want to go it alone) and it requires a lot of extra work to create, maintain and distribute that content.
Being a service based company I’m sure you can imagine how there is very little profit (if any) in providing services alone.So yes, I do have to supplement my revenue to stay afloat. Below are two primary sources of extra revenue.
Over the years I have created many frameworks and mini-courses to help you improve your online presence and grow your business. When you purchase any of these products, it helps fund Provirtua.
I really appreciate everyone in the Provirtua community who uses and support my products and courses. Thank you!
I earn referral fees when you buy services or products from companies that I recommend.
I am constantly sharing resources with my clients and potential clients and of course those are almost always resources that I have used myself and have proven to be a great asset. At the very least they are products or services that a client has seen success with so I refer on a second hand basis if I don’t have a resource from personal experience.
The solution to covering the cost of providing free content is a no-brainer for me. I now share the same vetted resources for a small fee, but never at an extra cost to you.
This monetization method is called affiliate marketing. The biggest brands on the internet offer affiliate programs such as Amazon, eBay, Google, etc. Many of your favorite sites use affiliate marketing to pay the bills. The only difference is that not everyone tells their users how they make money.
Rest assured, all opinions are my own, and I do not accept payments for positive reviews.
Sometimes you will see banner ads like these:
Other times, you will see a special link unique to each website that track referrals such as:
When you click on these links, you are tagged with a special cookie to track the referral. If you end up buying the product, then they pay me a referral fee.
The referral fees vary for each product. For a WordPress book that you may buy at Amazon, I might earn $1. For a premium WordPress theme, I might earn $10.
Question #1 – Will it Cost Me More Money?
No, absolutely not. In some cases, I am allowed to offer deals that will actually save you money.
Please check out my Business Resources page to find deals.
Question #2 – Do You See My Personal Details?
Nope. I don’t see any personal information i.e name, email, address, credit card, etc.The only thing I see is that an anonymous user made a purchase on date/time and which product they bought.
How Can You Help Me?
Sites like Provirtua take a lot of investment to operate. I am building a dedicated team of paid developers, writers, editors, etc.
That’s why I need your help. Below are few ways you can help me:
- Purchase my products and courses.
- If you’re thinking of buying a product, then please buy it using a Provirtua referral link.
- If you’re using a product that we recommend, then please leave your review in the comments to help others.
- Spread the word by sharing Provirtua content and tutorials with your friends and family on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, etc.
Why Should You Help Me?
I am on a mission to help entrepreneurs, bloggers and small businesses get their own valuable message out into the world and help them grow awareness to their own causes and products.
I won’t share an affiliate resource with you that I don’t know to be an outstanding opportunity. While I do seek to earn a commission from sharing, I never want to do that at your expense by being irresponsible with fake positive reviews or without testing the product.
I take my client’s and reader’s dreams and goals seriously, seeking to create an environment for my team members where they can be paid well, treated like family, and achieve their own personal growth.
If you’ve found Provirtua to be helpful, then I hope that you will help support me, so I can continue working towards the mission.
Thank you for support.
