LinkConnector Joins Forces with PRWeb™ and Bolsters Performance

Using LinkConnector's new and unique affiliate marketing techniques, PRWeb will promote its leading press release distribution services.

Cary, NC (PRWEB) — March 8, 2006 — LinkConnector (, an Affiliate Marketing Network, announced today its co-marketing efforts with PRWeb™ to promote the Online Visibility Company's well-recognized distribution services using new and unique affiliate marketing techniques. LinkConnector teamed with PRWeb™ to create a unique affiliate campaign featuring dynamic banner ads. These advanced new creatives continuously display and refresh the latest news headlines in a clickable format. LinkConnector worked to create this custom solution for PRWeb to meet their affiliate marketing needs and to help grow PRWeb’s online business. LinkConnector recognizes the value of merchants, such as PRWeb™, and is dedicated to providing greater valued solutions than what is currently found in the industry.

The new PRWeb campaign features unconventional banner ads that dynamically load fresh press release headlines, clickable to the PRWeb site. The banner ads are a key ingredient in the new PRWeb affiliate campaign with LinkConnector. The ads are upgraded with live RSS feeds generated several times a day. This works to keep the content on an affiliate’s site fresh and topical. The new banners make ideal advertising tools in that fresh news headlines are an interesting addition to a variety of different types and styles of websites. With the ability to profit from click-throughs on the news headlines, the new PRWeb campaign makes sense for many affiliate sites. This fresh technical and advertising approach to affiliate marketing should prove valuable not only in promoting the PRWeb business, but also in taking strides forward in affiliate marketing.

“By providing incentives for top performance, LinkConnector encourages all its merchants and affiliates to create strong relationships within the LinkConnector Network to grow their business,” said Choots Humphries, LinkConnector President. “Our campaign with PRWeb is an excellent illustration of how we strive to work with industry leaders to achieve superior results. We are dedicated to the creation of high quality tools and services, unique to affiliate marketing, that will grow this industry.”

PRWeb™ also launched a Naked Link® campaign to promote its PRWeb™ Direct service bureau. Having a Naked Link campaign allows the online news portal to benefit from all its inbound link traffic generated from its LinkConnector affiliate campaign, while bolstering online sales and traffic using LinkConnector’s advanced online tracking and reporting tools. Enabled with LinkConnector’s new proprietary technology to advance both their search engine optimization efforts and their online sales and traffic, PRWeb’s affiliate campaign is set to establish new goals in affiliate marketing.

“Choosing LinkConnector made sense for us given their hands-on approach and high level of personalized service,” commented Mick Jolly, Executive VP of PRWeb. “Having a custom solution built at minimal cost gives us a cutting edge in our fast-paced industry.”
