Town Ambassador/Affiliate Partnership Program – LeRumba.com

Introduction

Town Ambassador/Affiliate Partnership Program is at the core of our marketing plan to introduce 100,000+ LeRumba Town Squares to the world. 

Town Ambassadors and/or Affiliate Partners are group of local town people; with different backgrounds and from many industries and cultures. Their aim is to promote just what a great place their town is for businesses and families. Their mission is to: “make town residents aware of the underlying factors behind failing small businesses on Main Street; and appeal to their redeeming conscience so they would publicly support the efforts of those set out to help the small businesses survive and create local jobs in their towns and cities.” It is our hope that thriving businesses on Main Street will create local jobs and generate public revenues to help support the community… and make your town a better place for businesses and families.

Town Ambassadors/Affiliate Partners

For each state and city in a country around the world, we plan to sign-up public Town Ambassadors and/or Affiliate Partners. In some instances, Town Ambassadors and Affiliate Partners may be one and the same.

Affiliate Partners help businesses get online; and provide advertising, branding, promotional and digital marketing tools & services to small businesses. Affiliate Partners help consumers discover their Town Square for one-click searches to what's important to life in and around their town.  Their mission is to support the small businesses on Main Street get online and be found in local searches & on social media sites; and help bring new business to their town so businesses can grow organically based on value, quality, and customer service.

Benefits of Affiliate Partnership

Our branded product LeRumba for global markets was built from the ground up; with media publishers, web designers, online Ad agencies, affiliate marketers, PR professionals, and consumers from around the world in mind. Our mission is to help small businesses succeed online and help consumers find what they want. We pioneered the concept of branded advertising and promotions solutions built around the Virtual Town Squares that can be customized and launched for the country of your choice or your domicile.

·        Saves You Time and Money: Instead of building custom Ad platform(s), and spend time and money hosting it and maintaining it, our Ad platform LeRumba.com allows you to have a completely branded solution for a country that’s setup and hosted within hours.

·        Save More Money: Instead of spending time and money to process payments and perform numerous other back office management functions like credit, collections, charge-backs, accounting, taxes, etc; we have a completely branded solution that monitors and tracks sales and net revenues originating from your chosen territory− at city, state, and country level.

·         Generous Revenue and Equity Share: For each state and city in a country around the world, we generate monthly reports and share with our Affiliate Partners up to 30% of monthly revenues and also award phantom shares in LeRumba.com.

·        Fast Track to Revenue and Income: No waiting for months and years to generate income. You see revenue and income within a month and your recurring income build as your circle of influence grows thru viral and referral activities. 

·        Require Close to No Training Time: We offer our Affiliate Partners the opportunity to get an online certification in Small Business Marketing. However, our Ads platform LeRumba is designed to be used by non-technical users because we put usability above everything else─ meaning you spend less time promoting or training your clients and more time closing new deals.
