Intranets.com Launches Affiliate Program

Touting the move as a "win-win" for everyone involved, Intranets.com Monday launched its affiliate program to provide online companies the opportunity to earn a five dollar commission each time one of their customers links to its site and registers for a free intranet.

In just the first week of the program, nearly 600 affiliates have registered to participate in the idealab! venture's latest offering.

Managed by Be Free Inc., Intranets.com's affiliate program provides partners with around-the-clock technical support, custom links and banner advertisements, and easy-to-use reporting tools to track and detail success of the program. The program is free to affiliates.

"To encourage visitor loyalty, Web communities are constantly looking for unique services to add value to their sites. But for many companies, creating these custom services is often cost- or resource-prohibitive. We hope to help our Affiliate partners overcome that hurdle, by providing Affiliates with free access to our value-added service," said Rick Faulk, Intranets.com vice president of marketing.

"By offering our free service to their online customers, Affiliates can earn incremental revenues for themselves while enhancing their customers' online experience. And Intranets.com benefits by leveraging the reach of existing third-party Web communities."

Creator of the world's first free intranet portal, Intranets.com is the premier provider of free intranet portal solutions for the small- to medium- business market. Since Intranets.com launched its free intranet portal service, about 60,000 small businesses and groups have registered for their own custom intranet.
