netgenie Online Launches Aggressive Affiliate Program

netgenie Online this week launched its "Friends Telling Friends" affiliate program that pays subscribers for referring others to sign up for netgenie Online dialup service.

Netgenie Online affiliates may post a referral link on their business or personal website. The affiliates are eligible to receive $25 cash reward for each new customer they refer. Currently, there is no limit to the number of cash rewards an affiliate may receive.

"It's quite commonplace for online services to offer a free month of service for subscriber referrals, but Netgenie's actually opening up the checkbook and paying out cash," said Mark Shander, netgenie Online's marketing manager.

Shander added that the affiliate program is expected to help netgenie Online to quickly grow into one of the nation's premiere online services, like MSN, Prodigy and AOL."

Following an investment of more than $2 million and more than a year of research, design and developmentn netgenie rolled out a single fee online service to 80 percent of the U.S. market this past September.

Sander said the single fee program has proven to be extremely successful.
