Frequently Asked Questions
How to I market the Africa Media Programs?
- Marketing is a skill, but takes effort. The best way is to target areas where students congregate physically and virtually. Such as specific social media platforms, universities, clubs etc. Secondly, get creative on how to advertise freely to the students – give talks, put up posters, post social media advertisments, etc. And remember, Africa Media is here to assist you. When you sign up, we will give you are the marketing materials (and guidance) that you require. Also remember, to drive you marketing back to yourself. This will ensure that you can use your personal experience as testimony to our programs and also ensure that you get credit for your marketing and recruitment work.
How do I ensure I get credit for interns I recruit?
- The best thing to do is ensure that your marketing effort leads back to you (e.g. on posters, ensure your name and email address is present). Thus you can manually upload the leads that you generate and thus ensure you are credited with the recruitment effort. Also, we are happy to inquire directly with recruited interns as to how they heard about Africa Media, if they identify you, then you will be credited.
Can I recruit for programs I did not attend
- Yes. You have experienced and are knowledgable on Africa Media and how we run our programs. Even if you have not participated directly in all programs, you are an expert. If their are questions or queries that you cannot answers, do not hesitate to read our FAQ’s on how to answer intern questions, or reach out to one of our team – probably Fiona, for assistance. We are here to help.
How does the commissions work?
- Its pretty simply, you get 200USD per intern that you recruit (also for each month – e.g. 400USD for two month participation). You are eligible to received this payment once the intern has paid the program deposit, and you have been identified as the recruiter. Once you have successful recruits you can apply for payout in either May or November by submitting a claims form and sending a PAYPAL invoice to us at – firstname.lastname@example.org.
