PRWeb has announced the launch of their Evangelist affiliate program. Currently in beta, the program is available to a limited number of participants to start. The program offers a comission on services ordered from PRWeb via affiliate links and ads.
“Evangelists and power-users of PRWeb can now receive an agency-level referral fee for their word-of- mouth efforts.”
At the last Search Engine Strategies conference in NYC I talked with David McInnis about the idea of an affiliate program (he brought it up, not me) and I thought it would be a great idea. The type of product/service PRWeb offers should be very conducive to a successful affiliate program. At the same time, some affilates can get pretty aggressive and quality is an issue of prime importance for any wire service. To that end, PRWeb is limiting the initial participation of the program and then expanding to ensure quality.
