Austin Takes on Activ Click and Earn to Secure a Second Revenue
Austin Walters took on the Activ Click and Earn opportunity just under a year ago. “I wanted to work on a local area site and was very impressed by the strength of the Activ brand. I looked at other local information websites but did not think they were up to the same standard. I like the layout of the local Activ sites as well as the revenue model which allows me to earn very easily through pay per click.
Being a successful entrepreneur Austin wanted to expand his business portfolio to ensure he was generating multiple revenue streams. Austin specialises in SEO and online marketing and decided it was the perfect time to expand into online advertising.
He now successfully runs Activ Bridgend and enjoys working on a site so integral to his local community. Austin reveals “When you run a town site you have a lot to offer the local community and you become very well known through the work you do. I have made numerous contacts and have to admit I do enjoy the prestige that comes with the job.
Becoming fully involved within the local community was not the only advantage to running a local Activ site. Austin also enjoyed the flexibility that the opportunity could give him. “You don't have to dedicate certain times in the day to your work. Working on an online venture means you are not restricted to an office, a house or the standard 9-5 hours. I decide my times as and when I see fit.
Austin now regularly communicates with the Activ head office support team as well as both Directors Simon Rickett and Dillon Boivin. Austin adds “Simon and Dillon work hard to move the company forwards at all times and I enjoy regular contact with them and have been very happy with how things are proceeding.
As well as keeping in constant sync with head office Austin also benefits from regular networking opportunities within the Activ network where he is able to mind like-minded ambitious entrepreneurs.
Director Dillon Boivin adds “At Activ we make a point of rewarding entrepreneurial successes which is why Austin received a prize at the 2009 Activ Annual Conference for performance within the Activ UK network. We look forward to continue working with Austin and together we will ensure the brand will go from strength to strength.
