Okay, it’s time for this VP of Marketing to ‘fess up. We haven’t spent as much time as we should have promoting our “PowerPartners” affiliate marketing program. The truth is, when we made it easy for customers and non-customers to join the program; when we added cash rewards (in addition to hosting credit) for new referred business — and when we added our Custom Shop one-click ordering/referral system — we kind of thought PowerPartner membership would sell itself. We already knew we got a ton of new business from existing client referrals; why wouldn’t these customers line up to get paid for doing something they were already doing for free?
Some customers (and some non-customers) already have. PowerPartners regularly make thousands of dollars a month, getting paid for referrals they probably would have made for nothing in the past. These aren’t affiliate marketing professionals, either: most of them are set-it-and-forget-it part-timers, who don’t want to be bothered with details. Frequently, our best PowerPartners are web designers who point their customers in our direction, or power bloggers who run a simple ServInt banner ad (which we provide) at the foot of their home pages.
What do these people get? A one-time payment equal to the base monthly fee paid for the new client’s server — so anything from $55 for an Essential VPS up to $1,099 for our top-of-the-line BareMetal ONE server. There are no limits on the number of new customers you can refer. They just have to be paid-up customers in good standing for at least 60 days (90 days if they use a promotional coupon).
But here’s the big news, and the reason why you’re hearing from me about the PowerPartners program today: all PowerPartner commissions for the month of October will be doubled. So each Essential VPS customer will net you $110 — and each BareMetal ONE will put $2,098 in your pocket!
If you know somebody who’s looking for a good home for their online business, send them our way. We promise to take extra good care of them, like we always do. And we promise to pay you double the commission for your referral during the month of October.
Easy instructions for getting started as a PowerPartner can be found here. Just remember that commission amounts you see on our site should be doubled this month.
Thanks for reading, and I hope to see you join us as a PowerPartner soon!
