Affiliates, Marketing and Press Questions

  • 74 Why is Mypcbackup better than other backup/storage companies?

    Of course we are going to be biased, but the facts are clear for all to see.

    Mypcbackup provides a unique combination of online backup, file syncing, file sharing and online storage. Not only this but Mypcbackup does all of this for the price of a standard backup only service. Last Update: 02/20/2013

  • 83 How do I become a Mypcbackup affiliate?

    Simply click Here to become an affiliate. Last Update: 02/20/2013

  • 101 Ok now I signed up as an affiliate, what is the next step?

    The basic idea is for you to get customers to click on your unique tracking link (you will find this inside your affiliate control panel). You can promote us anywhere on the internet using your link or the banners we’ve provided you with, so we recommend posting messages on Facebook, Twitter and other social websites. Also posting comments on tech blogs and forums is a great idea. Last Update: 02/20/2013

  • 65 Can I still become an affiliate without purchasing the product?

  • 22 What is the difference between CPA and CPL?

    CPA stands for Commission Per Acquisition and this is when you are paid for every sale you generate.
    CPL stands for Commission Per Lead is when you are paid for every lead (a free join).
    Note: CPL has a drastically lower payout, starting at just $5 per lead. You must complete 5 sales on CPA before you can request to go on CPL.
    Most affiliates choose to stay on CPA as the conversion rate is much better for payouts. Last Update: 02/20/2013
