NEW YORK, Dec. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- 30DC, Inc. (OTC: TDCH), a provider of web-based tools for the monetization of digital content, today announced that it has officially launched its MagCast "Partner Program" following the signing of its initial 20 members.
The Partner Program allows qualified MagCast members - also called MagCasters - to market the MagCast Digital Publishing Platform ("MagCast") in their specialized market segment and receive an affiliate sales commission for new customer sales. At this stage, eligibility is limited to MagCasters who have published at least one magazine. As part of its broader business development plans, 30DC will be announcing further MagCast marketing initiatives at a later date. The company is also open to discussions about potential, key strategic partnerships with businesses that have complementary audiences.
Under the Partner Program, MagCasters will earn a 30% monthly commission on new customer fees (currently $297 per month). In discussing the program, 30DC CEO Ed Dale said, "We wanted our existing MagCasters to be the first ones to offer MagCast. They have worked with the product intensively, and therefore we believe they can promote its effectiveness, versatility and ease of use. MagCast is a premium product and it's important that partners meet strict quality criteria."
Mr. Dale elaborated further in saying, "We're really excited to spread the word on MagCast through our partners. We believe we can spread the word much faster through an outside network of partners rather than an in-house sales team. Furthermore as partners introduce new MagCasters, those new MagCasters in turn bring new MagCasters and the network has the potential for rapid viral expansion to levels well beyond the current 1,200 users and 175+ magazines."
To date, 30DC has focused MagCast on the Internet marketing and business opportunity industry vertical with the majority of sales coming from that market segment. By concentrating on that market first, and acquiring a sizeable number of Internet marketers as the initial MagCast users, the Company believes it has a built in sales force that is already well-versed with MagCast and excited about the results they are achieving. This group of enthusiastic MagCast users can then "pay it forward" by marketing it to colleagues in other markets, via direct referral, in the Partner Program and beyond.
MagCast is a collaboration of 30DC and Netbloo Media Ltd., who jointly developed the concept and design of the platform. More information about the MagCast publishing platform can be found at www.MagCast.co.
