"Spread the WWWord!" is OurChurch.Com's partnership/affiliate program designed to reward website owners that promote and link to OurChurch.Com. Partners receive 20% of the monthly revenue and 20% of the banner ad space from any website created at OurChurch.Com as a result of their referral. Plus, partners receive improved position in OurChurch.Com's search engine and are eligible for monthly awards of free advertising.
(Top 5 qualified sites)
How does it work? After registering as a Spread the WWWord! partner, you are provided with resources (graphics and HTML) which you place on your website to promote OurChurch.Com's website services. Every time someone clicks through from your site to OurChurch.Com and builds a website with our free and easy-to-use website service, from that day on you receive 20% of the banner ad space on that website. If that new site receives 5000 hits a month, 1000 of those pages will have your banner ad on it.
OurChurch.Com also rewards partners who generate paid hosting packages and options. When any of the sites you refer pays for hosting services, you receive 20% of that revenue. We also offer custom website design, search marketing, and online advertising services on which partners earn a 10% commission.
1,000 Free Banner Ads. We'll give you 1,000 free banner ads just for signing up. This offer is available to all new partners and will be awarded after the partner has had a link to OCC set-up on their site for a full month. You must also set-up the banner you want us to display using the "Banner Admin" link in the menu.
Better Search Engine Position. In addition to the ad space and revenue you earn from referrals, OurChurch.Com rewards you just for participating. An eye-catching smiley face graphic placed next to all of your listings in OCC's search engine. Furthermore, every time someone clicks through from your site to ours - regardless of whether they build a site with us or not - you receive a point. Each point increases your priority in our search engine.
Top OCC Partners. If that wasn't enough, OurChurch.Com also puts the banners of all active partners on the "Top OCC Partners" page, accessible right from our homepage. Partners receive points for clicks, referrals, commissions earned, and having an active banner. Partners are ranked in order of points earned. At the end of each month, the top 3 partners plus 1 randomly selected partner receive free banner advertising in the following month.
Who may participate? Any individual, company, or organization with a website. (If you're website is hosted by OurChurch.Com it must be in a Gold, Silver, Bronze, or Starter account.)
Why should I participate? The great thing about partnering with OurChurch.Com is that it gives you the opportunity to market your website to people with the same interests as your current visitors. Here are two examples:
Let's say you operate a Christian music site. A person who likes Christian music comes to your website and clicks through to OurChurch.Com. They decide to create a personal website with OCC's website service. Since you referred them to us, banners promoting your music site are shown on 20% of the page views. As a fan of Christian music, they include information about the bands they like which brings in visitors who are also Christian music fans. Those visitors see your ads and click through to your site, bringing you several new customers.
Or, let's say you operate the website for a national organization of churches. Pastors and lay leaders of churches in your organization visit your website. They see the opportunity for their church to have a free website with OurChurch.Com, click through, and create sites for their churches. Not only have you helped those churches find a way to get online, you receive 20% of the advertising space on those sites. Your organization can promote teaching materials, conferences, missions opportunities, and other resources with that advertising space. It's a winning solution for the churches, the church organization, and OurChurch.Com.
