Current Professional Experience

MY TRAFFIC SECRETARY, LLC October, 2014 – September, 2018

Manager

My Traffic Secretary is a home-based personal coaching business catering to 5 specific affiliate marketing home-based businesses. My coaches were remotely based in various states across the United States, but trained clients from all over the world. My Traffic Secretary is a separate, third-party business that was not associated, affiliated or part of any of these affiliate marketing businesses we supported. We simply provided back office support training, as well as internet marketing training, advertising and traffic strategies to our clients.

Managed the day to day operations of the business.

Managed a team of 11 coaches that worked directly for me. Answered any questions they could not answer on policy, billing and support issues. For any issues needing escalated outside our scope of support, I worked with my contacts from these 5 businesses to pass on the client’s issue for resolution.

Personally supported an additional, external group of 13-15 coaches that were not employed with our company, but were coaches from the 5 affiliate marketing businesses we supported & trained. They referred their clients to us to be trained and coached, and in turn, I paid them referral commissions. Frequently had to call their clients to answer questions about our services, our pricing, handle billing issues, disputes, complaints, walk them thru ordering training or products off our websites, etc.

Responsible for all staffing issues. Had to the power to hire or fire coaches, as needed.

Received 25-40 incoming sales daily and equally distributed to the coaches, who would in turn contact the new client to begin their training with them.

Provided “white glove” customer support to clients and potential clients by answering their questions on our services and training, by telephone, email and live chat. I was the sole voice of the company in all of these formats.

Walked clients thru purchasing training or products off our company websites, assisting with payment details, manually charging their credit cards if need be.

Performed maintenance on our client files, updating the database with new issues that arose, new contact information, new credit card information, etc.

Had access to the company bank account. Was responsible for computing the weekly payroll, commissions and bonuses of all my coaches, and physically paying them. Also was responsible for paying our various vendors and merchants, as needed.

Whereas My Traffic Secretary was owned by 3 partners, I solely ran the business with little to no guidance from the owners. The partners and I had periodic meetings to discuss any issues and the direction the company was going, but I for the most part ran the entire operation.
