Spanning, the makers of Spanning Backup for Google Apps, today announced the Save 5+Make 5 affiliate program, giving the Google Apps community the ability to offer Spanning Backup to their network at a $5/user per year discount while earning a recurring $5/user per year referral fee at the same time. Spiceworks, the world’s largest social network for IT, is the first member of the program. As a member of Save 5+Make 5, Spiceworks is able to provide extra value to its community by sharing their discount code.
“Every Google Apps customer needs Spanning Backup for Google Apps. It’s a matter of responsibility if you plan to conduct business in the cloud,” said Charlie Wood, CEO and founder, Spanning. “With Save 5+Make 5 we’re investing in our community of customers, partners, and resellers to help us spread that message.

As part of the program, Spanning is collaborating with Spiceworks to offer more than 2 million Spiceworks’ community members special pricing and referral opportunities. More information is available on Spanning’s Spiceworks Vendor Page.
“As more business applications move to the cloud, it’s important for IT departments to consider how off-premise business information is being protected,” said Jay Hallberg, co-founder and vice president of Marketing at Spiceworks. “We’re excited to bring new technologies like Spanning to our community of IT professionals as they manage the transition to cloud-based environments.”
Google Apps resellers are also excited about how easy this program makes it to offer Spanning Backup to their customers. "Just like Spanning Backup, Save 5+Make 5 is a breeze to setup and use," said David Eck, Cofounder at Paruzia Technologies.
This program is also designed to reward Spanning Backup customers for the word-of-mouth referrals they have been giving Spanning Backup from the beginning.
