Greetings OurChurch.Com Partner,
You received this email newsletter because you registered for OurChurch.Com's Spread the WWWord! partnership program.
As you know, here in the US we have a new president who has promised change. It's also a new year and for many people, this is the time for setting new goals and making improvements. That makes this the perfect opportunity for you to encourage people to build a new site or upgrade their site, perhaps by posting an article or blog post on your site. That's what we've been doing in our Christian Web Trends Blog with excellent results.
Despite the state of the economy we're seeing record orders for upgrades and new services. That makes this a great time to raise visibility of your graphics and links to OurChurch.Com. Consider swapping in a new banner, going with a bigger banner, or moving it up on the page, or if its not on your homepage adding a graphic there. It will likely pay off with more referrals and more commissions.
In His Service,
Paul Steinbrueck, CEO
IN THIS ISSUE
1) Commission Checks
2) New and Improved Web Hosting Services
3) Is Your Banner Working?
4) Top Partners, Tips, and Topics
1) COMMISSION CHECKS
Checks for commissions earned in the 4th quarter of 2008 have been issued. Please be sure to check your referrals and commissions on our partnership site and contact the help desk if you have any questions or issues.
2) NEW AND IMPROVED HOSTING SERVICES
On January 8th we announced a whole bunch of changes and improvements to our web hosting services - reducing prices and adding disk space, bandwidth, and email accounts for each hosting package. These improvements make web hosting at OurChurch.Com the best value ever and should make it easier than ever for you to refer people to these services.
3) IS YOUR BANNER WORKING?
Remember to check to be sure you have at least one banner for your organization set up correctly so you can receive free banner impressions as you earn or win them. To set up your banner go to http://partner.ourchurch.com and click the "Banner Admin" link in the menu. If you don't have a 468x60 banner to promote your site you can make a free one at addesigner.com. Or perhaps if you post a nice request in the Partnership Forum (http://forums.ourchurch.com/viewforum.php?f=3) one of our other partners would be kind enough to create one for you.
4) TOP PARTNERS, TIPS, AND TOPICS
We wanted to take a moment to recognize our top partners from September, plus pass along a partnership tip, and continue some conversation in the partners forum
