â€œReview My Postâ€ Affiliate Program Makes Trackbacks Pay, for all Bloggers.
ORLANDO, FL â€“ February 28, 2007 â€“ PayPerPost, the leading marketplace connecting marketers with bloggers, videographers, photographers, podcasters and social networks, has launched the worldâ€™s first viral affiliate program that compensates referred and referring bloggers, while driving marketing, feedback and â€œlink loveâ€ for affiliates. The â€œReview My Postâ€ affiliate program is open to all bloggers, not just existing members of PayPerPost (â€œPostiesâ€), and functions via a â€œGet Paid to Review My Postâ€ button in affiliate blog post templates. When non-Postie readers see the button on any post, sponsored or not, that interests them, click on the â€œReview My Postâ€ button to sign up, and blog about that post; they get paid $7.50 and the affiliate gets paid $7.50 for signing up a new PayPerPost member. More important than the affiliate payment, the program rewards interactive audiences and prompts marketing, feedback and trackbacks for the affiliate; resulting in a powerful win-win for all.
â€œThis program is our way of saying thanks to the blogging masses for all of the support weâ€™ve received by Posties and non-Posties alike â€“ and that support continues to grow. Every blog in the world, even those whoâ€™ve been unsure or critical of sponsored content, can benefit from a â€˜Review My Postâ€™ button on the bottom of their posts,â€ said Ted Murphy, chief executive officer of PayPerPost. â€œAudiences find posts every day to blog about, but now that feedback offers some concrete payback. Like sponsored blogging, this program provides another opportunity for bloggers to do something they already do â€“ blog about each other â€“ and get compensated for their efforts.â€
PayPerPostâ€™s original badge-based affiliate program remains active, but with this announcement, all affiliate programs are now available to everyone, not just Posties. Many bloggers use affiliate programs as their primary monetization strategy and with todayâ€™s announcement, PayPerPost provides a unique viral element to those efforts. Signing up as an affiliate, blogger or advertiser can be done at https://payperpost.com/signup.
â€œAlthough Iâ€™m excited for the bloggers signing up for this program, Iâ€™m already a little nervous about what weâ€™ve unleashed,â€ Murphy stated. â€œIf the viral growth continues to multiply as it has, it could be the Achilles heel PayPerPost detractors have been looking for to put us out of business. Bloggers see this as a no-brainer for marketing every post they write and are adopting the program much faster than we anticipated."
