Believe it or not, 11.13% of the people who use SelfPromotion.com support the site!
Make Money Slow!



Want to help other people learn about SelfPromotion.com and make money at the same time? Put the SelfPromotion.com button on your page, and if someone clicks through and supports the site, I'll give you 10% of what they give me. Not only that, but if you recruit other SelfPromotion.com partners, you'll receive commissions on the contributions they generate, up to 4 levels deep.

Also, if you belong to a mailing list, and mentioning SelfPromotion.com would be appropriate for the list, please do so. Include the special URL (see below) in your email, so that people who click through get credited to you.
Please be very cautious in doing this, and only mention SelfPromotion.com on mailing lists where it would be truly appropriate. And don't mention it because you hope to make some spare change, do it because you really think the site is useful. In the interests of disclosure, you should mention your financial interest if you use the special URL instead of plain old "http://selfpromotion.com/"

Please be aware that if I get complaints that a partner has been spamming or engaging in other obnoxious behavior in order to generate partner program income, I will disable the partner account and all the income generated will be forfeit. Such obnoxious behavior is absolutely contrary to the philosophy of this site, and will not be tolerated. So far I have never had to do this, which says a lot about my users (great people, all of them!)

How it works

The link you use to connect to my site has a special URL that lets me know who gets credit when someone supports the site. You get 10% of what they give me.

Once a quarter, I total everything up, and send you a check if the amount that has accrued is more than $25.00. Even better, every time this happens, I also extend your SelfPromotion.com account subscription for another year! No matter what, at the end of the year, if you've accrued more than $5.00, I'll send you your earnings (if you choose to be paid via PayPal, I can send you what you are owed even if it is less than $5.00, because it's much cheaper and easier for me to do this than send you something in the mail!).

Not only that, but if you convince other people to join the partner program, you'll get additional income based on the contributions they generate - and this goes 4 levels deep!
For example, if Fred joins the partner program, he gets 10% of whatever his referrals generate. And if Fred gets Barney to join the partner program, he also gets 2.5% of whatever Barney's referrals generate. Then if Barney recruits Betty, Fred gets 1.5% of whatever Betty generates. And finally, if Betty recruits Wilma, Fred gets 1.0% of anything Wilma generates.


Am I a nice guy, or what?! Here's what you do:

Here's some sample HTML you could modify and use. (if there is a big gap and you need to scroll vertically to read it, this is intended, so that it doesn't display on top of the navigation palettes to the right!)

Needless to say, you have to edit the URL of the IMG tag so that it references the copy of the button on your server! If you don't feel up to that, just leave the button out, the text alone works fine.

You may be wondering why the example has multiple links to pages on my site. There are two reasons for this. First, it tends to improve my ranking in some search engines for the words and phrases in the links. Second, those phrases tend to be the ones that "convert" into paying contributors the best, so having them hilighted and underlined improves your chances of making a commission!


PS: for my Macintosh friends, here is a special version of the button that mentions the site is mac-based.

How to recruit partners

Recruiting partners is easy. Just send them to the site using the URL above; if they sign up for the partner program, or create an account and then sign up later, they count as one of your recruits. In addition, you can simply send them to this page using a special url that contains your partner account code. Guess what? It's almost identical to the link for sending people to the site. You'd use URL(s) like:

http://selfpromotion.com/partner.t?CF=yourname@yoursite.com

Obviously, you'd change yourname@yoursite.com to your email address.

The only difference is that instead of http://selfpromotion.com/ you use http://selfpromotion.com/partner.t

About this site...
This site was developed on a Macintosh, programmed in WebSiphon, and served by WebStar. The author, on those exceedingly rare occasions when he does think, indeed thinks differently.

It looks (and works) better when you use version 4.0 or better of Netscape Navigator or Internet Explorer, but can be used with any tables-capable browser.
