DigiWorldz has announced a referral and affiliate program for residents, bloggers, and anyone else who would like to bring new users to the grid and earn a commission on all future land payments.

This is not a one-time payment, grid founder Terry Ford told Hypergrid Business. Whenever a new user signs up with a particular unique link, 5 percent of all future purchases and payments will go to the original referrer.

“The potential here is very good, especially for a busy blog or other website,” said Ford.

For example, if the customer rents a $20 region, the referrer will earn $1 a month, or $12 a year, for as long as that region is rented.

If the customer then adds more land, or other customers use the same affiliate link, the referrer’s monthly income will grow with no upper limit Ford said.

“Our marketing budget is small, our profit margins thin and we hope this will prove an effective way of reaching more people by trading the advertising done by the affiliates for a recurring income,” he said. “We get advertising without paying up front, the referring user gets a recurring income if anyone uses their link.”

To get started, would-be referrers or affiliates need to have a user account with the DigiWorldz land store, then visit the affiliates page┬áto activate the affiliate account and get a unique referral link, which can be given out to friends, used with any of DigiWorldz’ suggested graphics or your own text or images, or even given out in-world.

DigiWorldz has already had the most successful launch in the history of the hypergrid, based on low prices — it initially offered $8 regions — and the reputation of its founders.

Growth has continued even as the grid’s prices went up slightly. In October, prices are going up again, from the current base of $16 for a 15,000-prim region to $20.

Other grids are likely to be watching closely to see if the new marketing strategy works.

    So I dropped in to Digi world class act like it should be from people that understand virtual worlds. What I did not find was a Linux viewer
    Whats up Cinder where is the source. Lets get with GPL and show the source code.
    So instead of waiting I took the logos from the mac build then started moving the art work and all the other crap that says alchemy and pushed it over. and built a digi viewer. right now I am playing with the code that lets you buy Digi’s from the viewer. But who care Terry you not going to post GPL source code smile send me a link. There is a Linux 64 bit and 32 bitr linux viewer but it not in Cinders repo.

    Last but not least Huge belly laugh Inworldz using the SL v3 code modified by the alchemy viewer Team. has any one looked at that Fantastic team. Wowe dang good developers. But David D WTF do you understated those people are the people you hated 5 years ago . LOL. Send them a check I love the Updted Inworldz viewer that avian left you never used. OH it was free.
