Benefits of Contributing

First, since I absolutely refuse to have dissatisfied users, SelfPromotion.com comes with a 100% unconditional unlimited no-risk satisfaction-assured no-matter-what no-matter-when money-back guarantee. If at any time, for any reason, you come to feel that your subscription to the site isn't worth what you contributed, even if you've only got 10 minutes left before your year's subscription is up, just let me know why you're unhappy (so I can fix it!) and I'll give you a complete refund. And by the way, in over a year online, I can count the number of people who've asked for a refund on the fingers of one hand, and I've still got fingers left!

If you contribute $10 or more, you'll gain access to some cool bonus features (such as the ability to apply for awards), as well as a few useful "Secret Net Tools:"

If you decide to try pay-per-click ads, the Search Terms Generator can quickly generate large lists of search terms to bid on.

The Espionage tool lets you look at a web-page the way the search engines do. It's great for learning the tricks of getting better rankings.

The HTML PrettyPrinter shows you the logical structure of your pages, and helps diagnose those pesky table errors!

The View HTML tool is like your browser's view command, but it also shows you the HTTP headers.

The Keyword Diffuser is a seriously cool tool. You enter keywords that describe your site, and the Diffuser generates many different sets of META keywords tag, one for each of your pages. Each META tag has a different subset of your keywords in different orders; the idea is to maximize the chance that any particular query on a search engine will find one of your pages. It even has a macro processor to help you generate keyword phrases!

And finally, the License Pl8 Genr8tor is a fun little tool that will take just about any phrase and attempt to make a vanity license plate out of it!

In addition, contributors get access to a lot of little convenience features, such as the ability to display and select all the sites to promote to, a "check-all" javascript option, and automatic resubmission of their urls to the major search engines every 45 days. I'm always adding little features like these -- usually they get done because a contributor asked for them.

Convinced? Scroll down for the contribution methods...

First, decide how much you want to pay. Here are my suggested contribution guidelines. Feel free to express your admiration by sending more. I won't complain!

Type of site Suggestion Notes :
Educational/Non-Profit $5-15 1: Steve, cough up the cash and everyone with an aol.com email address will get priority service.

2: Bill, if you pay up, only users of Internet Explorer will get to use the service! This could be the masterstroke that ensures your total domination of the Internet! And for a mere $5,000,000.00, how can you go wrong?

3: Larry, you always want to outdo Bill, and here's your chance. You're never going to have a better or cheaper opportunity to put the screws to him! And of course, if you do fork over the bucks, I'll set the site so that users of Internet Explorer can't use it. (Note: if Bill's already paid up, it'll cost you $20,000,000.00, as I'll have to give him his $5,000,000.00 back. So don't delay, pay today!)

PS: These jokes should give you an idea of how long I've been running this site!
Personal $15-30
Commercial $25-75
More than 5 sites $10/site
Steve Case of AOL $1,000,0001
Bill Gates $5,000,0002
Larry Ellison $10,000,0003


Once you've decided how much to pay, the next decision to make is how you want to pay.

Credit Cards Pay using any major credit card or PayPal. I use PayPal as my credit card processor, but you do not need a PayPal account in order to pay this way, just a credit card. You can also use an existing PayPal account if you want. Just click the Donate button to the right; you'll be able to enter the amount and your payment information on PayPal's secured site.

Since you're not logged into your SelfPromotion.com account, please enter either your SelfPromotion.com account name, or the email address associated with your SelfPromotion.com account, so I will be able figure out what account to credit. Then click on the Donate button.

Once the payment is processed, PayPal will send me an email, and I'll credit your account, typically within a few hours.

For your peace of mind, I am a PayPal Verified Member.

PS: I just updated this page to use PayPal's latest payment interface, so if you have any problems using it, or suggestions on how to make it easier, please don't hesitate to email me. There'll be an email link on the page PayPal returns you to. Thanks!
