Now you can get paid for helping to promote us. We have had a number of users’ request we build this. We now have a beta version for select clients.
Here's how it works:
Simply place a text link or banner ad for backpage.com on your web site or blog. The link or banner ad will have your affiliate id. When users click the link or banner ad and post an ad on backpage.com in the next 30 days, we tag the user as referred by you via your affiliate id. When the user buys upgrades for any of their ads, we pay you 10% commission on any online only upgrades.
Why is this good for you to do?
We have millions of postings each month. Some users spend $1 to $1,000 a month on sponsor and auto re-postings upgrades. Many people have never heard of us, so there are millions of new users. You can earn significant commission from these new users. Users are looking for cost effective advertising that is easy and self service. That's us. Free classified sites like backpage.com are very popular in this tough economy. Our traffic has grown a billion page views this year.
Who is eligible?
Right now, I am looking for a couple dozen larger web sites or blogs with sizeable traffic. The ideal sites will reach a market interested in posting online classified ads ranging from something to sell, jobs, events, services, rental and real estate ads. You will have to wait for us to finish developing the self service interface to check your commissions earned. But for your patience, we will treat you well since you will be one of our charter affiliates.
Very soon we plan to open this up to everyone...so let us know if you are interested. Even if you are not a larger site, I will save your info and contact you after our initial testing. Please be sure to include your site URL and your day time phone number.
