(PRWEB) October 25, 2004
NextGen Development Corp., the developer of a revolutionary, new spam filter, GoodbyeSpam (http://www.goodbyespam.com), today announced that itÂs affiliate marketing program has launched under the management of Shawn Collins Consulting (http://www.shawncollinsconsulting.com).
Over the past year, there have been a number of federal lawsuits against bulk e-mailers, as well as the passage of the Controlling the Assault of Non-Solicited Pornography and Marketing law (CAN-SPAM), yet spam is on the rise, according to a recent survey.
In August 2004, the nonprofit group Consumers Union reported disturbing findings from a survey of 2000 e-mail users. According to the survey results, 47 percent said spam had increased since the CAN-SPAM law took effect in January, and 69 percent said at least half the e-mail they receive is spam.
There are dozens of spam filters available to alleviate this problem, but most recently, NextGen Development and ITS have joined forces to create a new filter called GoodbyeSpam.
GoodbyeSpam has an advantage over other filters on the market, in that it works with any kind of e-mail account users may have. "GoodbyeSpam works with your standard POP3 account, IMAP4, or any one of the numerous Web-based e-mail services like AOL, MSN, Yahoo, or Hotmail," says Jeff Swartz, Public Relations Officer for GoodbyeSpam. For a limited time, GoodbyeSpam is available for a free 30-day trial period.
Affiliates will earn commission each time they sign up somebody for the GoodbyeSpam free 30-day trial period. And GoodbyeSpam affiliates will get a free GoodbyeSpam account, for the duration of the time they remain active as affiliates, when they add affiliate links to their sites.
ÂThis attractive offer, combined with a generous commission structure, and a program policy which bans affiliates that utilize software downloads, has resulted in a great performing program for affiliates,Â said new affiliate manager, Shawn Collins.
GoodbyeSpam is compatible with Windows, Mac OS, Linux, UNIX, or even on a PDA. It runs in an Internet browser window, and can be used on several email accounts at once.
GoodbyeSpam lets users establish a list of addresses that are automatically approved and allowed in their in-box. "Users can then set up another list of addresses or domain names that are unwanted and not allowed. When e-mail arrives, all messages from non-approved addresses are quarantined," says Swartz. Then, GoodbyeSpam sends a message to the original sender asking them to click an embedded link to get on the user's approved list.
"Most spammers use fake email addresses for sending their spam and never receive these verification messages, or they don't have the time or capability to deal with them," says Swartz, "so their mail won't get through." A legitimate sender is more likely to click the link to make sure the intended recipient sees their message.
