Hi OCC News Subscriber,
I was just reading an article this morning that said word of mouth has always been the best kind of marketing and continues to be so even today. We have always believed that here at OurChurch.Com which is why we created the Spread the WWWord! partnership program years ago - to encourage you to tell your friends and acquaintances about OurChurch.Com and to reward you for doing so.
March is Partnership Month at OurChurch.Com. We're putting the focus on our partnership program. Encouraging those of you who are not participating to sign up, working with those of you who are partners to help you be more successful, and discussing with you what we can do to make the program better.
So, take a look at all the opportunities we're providing below.
Partnership Month Features
1) Get Starter and Ad-Free For Only $98
2) Free Advertising for New Partners
3) Big Announcement March 12
4) New Director of Partner Relations
5) Give Us Feedback Get 5,000 Banner Displays
6) New Partnership Graphics
7) Need Help Setting Up Your Banner?
1) GET STARTER AND AD-FREE FOR ONLY $98
This month only, if you have a free site you can upgrade to get a year of the Starter Package and a year of the Ad-Free Option for only $98. If you'd like to be a part of our partnership program, you need to have your own domain name, and this deal includes free domain name registration. Order now!
If you're already a partner, this is a great deal to mention on your website or in your newsletter to earn new referrals.
2) FREE BANNER ADVERTISING FOR NEW PARTNERS
Sign-up for our Spread the WWWord! partnership program and set up a banner promoting your organization using the partner banner admin during March, and we'll display that banner 5,000 times in April on OurChurch.Com and our member sites.
3) BIG ANNOUNCEMENT MARCH 12
We can't let the cat out of the bag yet, but on Thursday we're going to announce a huge new opportunity - which includes among other things a free website for life. Keep an eye on your email or our announcements forum.
4) NEW DIRECTOR OF PARTNER RELATIONS
In an effort to better support our partners and develop better relationships with them, we've created the new position of Director of Partner Relations and named Karl Beaudry to that position. In the past, partners' questions would be answered by the member of our support staff who got to it first. By putting Karl in this position, he will get to know each partner better and be familiar with all future questions/issues/suggestions. If you're a partner, stop the partnership forum and say hi to Karl.
5) GIVE US FEEDBACK, GET 5,000 BANNER DISPLAYS
We want to help you become a successful participant in our partnership program. Because if you're successful, we'll be successful too. So, how can we do that? What can we do to help you? How can we improve the partnership program? Let us know by posting questions and suggestions in this new partners forum topic. Everyone who posts a comment or suggestion by March 31 will be entered into a drawing to receive 5,000 banner displays in April.
6) NEW PARTNERSHIP GRAPHICS
Our graphic designers have been hard at work creating cool new graphics you can display on your site to refer your visitors to OurChurch.Com. You can easily add these graphics to your site by clicking the "View HTML Source" under the graphic and copying and pasting that into your site.
7) NEED HELP SETTING UP YOUR BANNER?
Unfortunately, many of our partners are losing out on lots of free advertising (and thus free visitors) for their site because they haven't set up a banner ad for us to use to promote their site. Banners can be set up relatively easily using the Banner Admin (http://www.ourchurch.com/ads/partner.php3) There is a Banner Admin Help Page (http://www.ourchurch.com/help/help-banneradmin.php) available. If you're still stumped, submit a ticket to our help desk and Karl will help you get set up.
Don't lose out on all that free advertising and new visitors.
In His Service,
Paul Steinbrueck, CEO
