the simpler ones. Enjoy!

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
Am I a nice guy, or what?! Here's what you do:
- Copy the button above onto your server (please don't reference the button on my server,
the bandwidth on my link is limited; make a copy and store it on your machine).
- You can link using a URL that references your email address, or your SelfPromotion.com
account if you are a contributor. These URL(s) are :
Obviously, you'd change email@example.com to your email address.
- Add a suitable modest recommendation (see below).
- Fill out the form at the bottom of this page so I know where to send your non-ill-gotten gains.
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!)

Best of all, you can use the site for free -- if you like it,

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:
Obviously, you'd change firstname.lastname@example.org to your email address.
The only difference is that instead of http://selfpromotion.com/ you use http://selfpromotion.com/partner.t
The all important "Where to send the money" Form!
Note: If you already
have a Partner Program account, and want to change your information, then for security purposes, please
email the changes to me and I will update your account.
If you have a PayPal account, fill in that field if you want me to send you your
earnings via PayPal; otherwise leave it blank. You can sign up for a PayPal account
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.
