2017 has been another incredible year! Thank you so much to all of our members and team members who continue to spread the word and improve the Yazing platform! We have been focused on growing and improving and haven’t kept up as much with sharing the news as we would typically like, we hope to add more news and “how to” information to our blog this year, as we realize that cashback is very straight forward but making money influencing sales isn’t quite as intuitive and is a key differentiation point between Yazing and the few other cashback sites that offer 100% of the commissions to their members.
We ended 2017 with over $40 Million in sales for our brands! That represents a nearly 40% increase from the end of 2016, and a total combined sales of nearly $75M from the when we started through the end of 2017. We ended 2017 with 9.4k members who earned nearly $700k in commissions last year!
As the word about Yazing continues to spread, our membership numbers continue to increase rapidly nearly doubling our member base in 2017 via word of mouth.
We finished 2017 with $42.8 million in sales generated for our partner brands & stores, up nearly 40% from the end of 2016. Total cash rewards earned by members increased 22% year over year , ending the year at $687k. While we continued to grow rapidly, it wasn’t nearly the percentage increase from 2015 to 2016 which we were just starting out.
We now have over 1,200 of the top internet brands, and we continue to add new stores all the time. This is more than 100% more than we had at the end of 2016. We continue to maintain a policy of only bringing on new brands that are offering Yazing members their top commission rates and focusing our efforts on adding the stores requested most by our members. If there is a store missing from the site, other than Amazon, please let us know, and we will do our best to add them as soon as possible.
Referral Transactions Update:
While we do have a handful of members making a good amount of money promoting brands and getting paid on the transactions they influence, we still need to do a better job of teaching existing members how this this works. This continues to be a great opportunity for our members and will be a major focus in 2018.
Member Dashboard Update:
While we didn’t get the dashboard up and running in 2017, we are happy to announce that as of the writing of this news update, our members can now see all of their pending and paid transactions online, and no longer need to request a Yazing Cash Rewards Report! Our next big project will be making shopping easier so you can easily find the best deals our brands have to offer.
Thanks everyone for a fantastic 2017 and may 2018 be a happy, healthy, and profitable year for you!
