Easy Ways to Support This Website

#1 Postby robert » Wed Dec 28, 2011 7:39 pm

Hello everyone!

Some of you might not be aware of simple actions that go a long way in supporting this website.

I fund it all myself and it can get expensive at times with the tours and promotions, give-aways and programs, and paying those who help run and maintain the website. I want to inform you of ways you can contribute to this wonderful resource by doing things you already do.

Here are some easy ways to support this forum and www.veganbodybuilding.com:

1. If you already use Vega products, please consider ordering from any of the 4 stores I work with. When these stores order from Vega, I get commission. I've been working with Vega for 6 years and these days I get commission from 4 online accounts, as part of my work in online sales. When you order from the following stores, not only are you supporting me, but you're supporting stores who have done a lot to support this website and in most cases, have done a lot for the vegan movement too.

Vegan Essentials - www.veganessentials.com

Food Fight Vegan Grocery - www.foodfightgrocery.com

Vegan Proteins - www.veganproteins.com

Bodybuilding.com - www.bodybuilding.com


2. When you click on our Vegan Essentials banners on the main website or the forum, and then make a purchase from www.veganessentials.com, they give us 5% back on the order! Vegan Essentials has been supporting www.veganbodybuilding.com in this way for years. Now that you know, please consider shopping from their website.

3. Order a Vegan Bodybuilding & Fitness clothing item from me directly or from www.veganessentials.com or www.veganproteins.com. Represent our brand in your community while helping keep the website and forum going strong. We offer t-shirts, tank tops, muscle shirts, gym bags, headbands, wristbands, women's shorts, and other items. See our online store for listings: http://www.veganbodybuilding.com/?page=products

4. Order a copy of Vegan Bodybuilding & Fitness - The Complete Guide to Building Your Body on a Plant-Based Diet from www.veganessentials.com, www.veganproteins.com or Amazon.com. All of those methods help support this website by getting the book out to more people. Here is a link to the Amazon page: http://www.amazon.com/Vegan-Bodybuildin ... =8-1-spell

5. Post links to our website, our forum, articles, your training journal, etc. on your Facebook, Twitter, Blogs and other social media websites.

6. Tell others about this website and this community and invite others to join the forum.

7. Ask me for a 10% OFF coupon code for a 1 time use at Vegan Essentials. I have 10% Off codes for you to save, and part of that sale comes back to www.veganbodybuilding.com too. Email robert@veganbodybuilding.com for your coupon code.

Thank you so much. I am very grateful for your involvement in this movement!

Your support means a lot.

Thank you for your support, Ryan!

It really means a lot. We're making great strides and it is comforting to know that you've got our backs. I hope we're able to send a lot of business to www.veganessentials.com too.

All the best!

I really wish I could, but Vega products are just TOO expensive, especially for students. I believe they are 100% worth the price when one considers how much we benefit from them, but I simply can't afford them! Every time I go out to replenish my protein I get super bummed over how pricey Vega stuff is. :[

Thanks for your feedback! One exciting piece of news is that the price of Vega is dropping sometime soon. Across the board, it will be lowered.

At the moment, there are lots of Vega products, some which are quite affordable. Some have a higher price point. There is a lot of variety in the product line these days.

One of the ways "I" offset it for many (and you're welcome to ask them, as I'm quite proud of it) is by offering coupon codes and further more, if people order from one of those stores, and forward their receipt to me, I am known for sending out a thank you package with additional product packets, bars, etc.

I do what I can to give back and I offer the same when people order books or clothing from me. They all come with free Vega :)

Keep your eyes out for promos too. One of the best things to do is get on Twitter and follow:

@VeganEssentials
@ffgrocery
@VeganProteins
@BodybuildingCom

When they have discounts, promos and give-aways, they'll post about it :)

Thanks!

All the very best!

-Robert

Hey Robert,

Could we find out from VeganEssentials if there is a code that could be directly inputted in if users don't see the ads right away?

Yeah, I have one. I have a code people can manually put in when they check out and it gives them 10% off.

They also have a tracking system to know who clicks on a banner and makes an order, even if they don't make an order at that moment or even that day. The link tracks that they found VeganEssential.com via VeganBodybuilding.com

Right now I just give out the 10% off code by request, but I'll see if I can post it. Not sure how they want me to handle it, but will know asap. Thanks!

Robert

Robert, if you wanted to PM me an address for yourself I will gladly put US$50 in the mail and send it out to you.

Not much but every dollar helps, I know from my own experiences with business, charity and the like. Thanks & kind regards from New Zealand, Kia kaha.

Hello there,

I think what you are doing is fantastic, promoting not only fitness but vegan fitness, I would love to support you more but correct me if I am wrong but everything seems to be USA based and I am here in the UK, postage costs from there make most purchases unviable if you would like a distributer here in the UK maybe we could talk.

Regards.

Maria.
