I seem to be on an affiliate kick this week. I posted the top fifty
affiliate resources recently and yesterday news about Yesmail being
named the first TrustE Web privacy seal reseller caught my attention.
It motivated me to check and see if any other website seal companies
were offering reseller opportunities as it's a great chance for
agencies and online marketing firms to increase revenue while providing
clients a valuable tool and resource to improve conversions.
a few searches revealed that of those companies researched (EpublicEye,
WebAssured, GeoTrust, Thawte, BBBonline, WebTrust and
ValidatedSite.com) only ValidatedSite.com provided a program for
resellers and affiliates.
ValidatedSite's model is unique as it is
based on a sliding scale as determined by the purchaser (larger
organizations pay more because more requests are made on the VS seal)
which means affiliates earn more if they sign on a larger, more high
profile company. For agencies (advertising, marketing, search,
conversion) interested in offering such an add-on service to their
clients they can learn more at ValidatedSite's Privacy Seal Reseller Program.
