Carrollton, TX (PRWEB) December 31, 2009
Computer School for Seniors announced today that it will enter the new year by launching an Affiliate Partner program with the Pepperjam Network.
Computer School for Seniors is a virtual campus that offers online computer and lesson plans for baby boomers, seniors or anyone who would like to learn more about their computer and the Internet. It emphasizes the joy and benefits that can be found by connecting families and friends online.
Pepperjam is one of the true pioneers of affiliate marketing having started out as an affiliate and then successfully building one of the largest, most respected and recognizable full-service Internet marketing agencies in the United States.
"Women over 55 are the fastest growing demographic on Facebook" according to Justin Smith, founder of Inside Facebook. In addition, a recent study from the Pew Internet & American Life Project showed the biggest increase in Internet use since 2005 can be seen in the 70-75 year-old age group.
Its a trend Mimi Witcher is well aware of. "I have seen first hand the benefits and joy learning about the computer and the Internet can bring to my senior students. Knowing how to send an email or make a comment on Facebook connects them with friends and family in a way that not knowing disconnects them. I started out nine years ago teaching 15 seniors in a classroom at a community college in Dallas, Texas. We were all a little intimidated. We didn't grow up with computers like our kids and grandkids. But we have come a long way in the last few years. More and more seniors are becoming computer savvy and loving it."
The online computer campus began with a simple request from one of Mimi's senior students, since then, she has gone from 15 students in a classroom to thousands around the world on the Internet. Now through Pepperjam's network of over 30,000 affiliates even more seniors will be able to benefit from Mimi's online computer lessons.
