Are You Missing Out?


You are receiving this email newsletter because you are signed up for OurChurch.Com's Spread the WWWord! partnership program. If you'd like to unsubscribe see the instructions at the bottom. This newsletter is also available with color and graphics in our archives.

1) Commission Checks
2) New "Top Partners" List
3) Are You Missing Out?

Checks for commissions earned in the 1st quarter of 2005 will be issued Friday, April 29. Please be sure to check your referrals and commissions and contact the help desk if you have any questions or issues.

On March 2, OurChurch.Com discontinued the "Top Linked Sites" list that was featured on our homepage. In its place we introduced a new "Top Partners" list. While the old list was based solely on click-throughs, the new list ranks partners based on clicks-throughs, referred sites, commissions earned, and more. See the "Details and FAQs" page on the partnership site for more details.

Unfortunately, a large number of our partners are missing out on having their banner displayed on the Top Partners list and missing out on other free advertising because they're not fully participating in the program.

842 partners have signed up for the program, but have not uploaded a banner promoting their site for us to display. To upload 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 we can create a nice one for you for $30, a generic one for $15, or you can make a free one at addesigner.com

46 partners have uploaded banners but don't have a single click-through this month. Partners, check to be sure you're liking directly to http://www.ourchurch.com Then check to be sure you've set the Base URL correctly in your partnership settings. To do that go to http://partner.ourchurch.com and click the "Update Settings" link in the menu. If those two items are correct, try clicking on the link to OurChurch.Com on your site to give yourself a click-through. Click totals are updated around 1 AM EDT, so check the next day to see if your banner appears on the Top Partners list. If not, contact us and we'll help you figure out why you're not getting click-throughs.

Thanks for partnering with OurChurch.Com. We appreciate your help in spreading the word about OurChurch.Com's Christian website services. Please send any comments or questions to our help desk.
