Marketing, Advertising and Public Relations

Marketing approaches where other people promote your products and services and in return they receive payment for each sale that are made as a direct result of their efforts. This means that you as the “merchant” can have an army of people promoting your wares without you having to lift a finger. If you’re one of those people promoting the merchant’s products and services i.e an “affiliate” then you don’t even need to have a website to make it a success although it does help

Dear Shaun,

How are you? First of all, thank you. I can't say enough thank you to you -it really means alot to me that you went out of your way to listen and to help me. I was so overwhelmed this afternoon when I received the email from the DRC - it just feel to me at last - SOMEONE is listening.

I just need to confirm the following with you as I noticed it just now. I see that the DRC papers were faxed to 021 801 3029. Did it go through? -cause I know that is Montoit's telephone number (its one of those NEOTEL cordless phones)

So, I've received my money from Jean on Saturday. I had to drive to the panel shop at 15h00 and I had to take my Laptop with. While sitting next to Jean and showing him all my work he still tried to tell me that he cant find my adverts on GUMTREE. I connected with my Laptop and went into each advert to show him. After sitting there for an hour I came to realise that Jean's method's were all wrong - he would do an incorrect SEARCH for the vehicles each time. I felt relieved, I couldnot understand why this man kept on telling me I didn't do my work and I DID (so frustrating) and in the meantime he serached on the wrong place.

So the money is sorted out.
R3000
- R500 (advance - the week after I got back from my wedding)
- R962.50 (Marius paid me)
- R1500 (Jean paid me)

= R37.50 outstanding (but not gonna make a fuss about R37)

I spoke to Elize tonight. She is the lady that works for Marius (or rather - she helps Marius out. She doesn't get a salary) Drosdy was not open today (Wednesday) Elize is the usually off on a Monday, but took Wednesday off instead. (that's also why we had to stand and wait for Marius till 10h00 infront of the stand on Monday's, because Elize is the person who opens up and then she is not there) anyway, so no one was there. Elize will check for me if they received the fax from the DRC or then Montoit?

I just got a quick question for you. Please explain to me what will happen if Marius and Jean are absent on the 21st of June (..if they decide they are not going - it will be very possible)


I am sorry for all the questions and the "just making sure's" all the time. :) Again, thank you for helping me

Many thanks and kind regards
