theglobe.com Adds Services for Web Entrepreneurs

Online community network theglobe.com signed several strategic
partnerships with B2B companies that will enable small business owners and
consumers to enhance their online presence.

Programs will include a virtual business agency through DigitalWork.com, a domain registration
service provided by Internet Domain Registrars and an
aggregated affiliate
program powered by Be Free in which several categories of
merchants will be hosted under a single theglobe.com affiliate program.

The partnerships for the community network’s Small Business Resource Center
will reside on both theglobe.com’s flagship site as well as on its small
business hosting service WebJump, which caters exclusively to the
small business owner. Financial arrangements with the partner companies were
not disclosed.

“With the Small Business Resource Center, theglobe.com, has developed unique
and customized packages that allow strategic partners the ability to hone in
on one of the most valuable and hard to find target audiences,” said Will
Margiloff, director of sales at theglobe.com,

Entrepreneurs will have access to DigitalWork.com’s public relations,
marketing, sales, recruiting, finance and information technology advice that
can assist them in
the way they do business on the Web.

Registrars.com and theglobe.com’s partnership will allow visitors to purchase
domains for $59.98 for a two-year registration through registrars.com’s
three-step
registration system.

The Be Free deal includes a customized aggregated affiliate program for users
at theglobe.com’s flagship site and WebJump. A simple “point and click” will
enable theglobe.com or WebJump’s users to sign on to the company’s affiliate
program, gaining access to several categories of merchants at once, rather
than having to select them individually.
