Make Money with the Premise
Affiliate Program

WordPress Landing Pages by Premise

We like to say that landing pages turn traffic into money. Now, thanks to the affiliate program for our Premise Landing Page System for WordPress, that pithy saying is more literal than ever.

Our initial user base is already into the thousands, and the feedback they’ve given us has already resulted in the release of Premise 1.1, with an even better version 1.2 already in the works. And we’ve never had so many people asking … no, make that demanding, that we open up an affiliate program.

The wait is over. 😉

Yes, I know it’s a weird thing to do. Yes, I can actually work at it – blogging and all. And yes, there’s something wrong with me.
