New UK ISP Launches With Branded vISP Affiliate Programme Monday 13 August 2001 PDF Print NeonHippo Can Turn Loyalty Into Revenue With Its Virtual ISP Product Birmingham, UK, August 13th: NeonHippo, a UK based Internet Solutions Provider has announced the launch of its Internet services with a branded unmetered Affiliate ISP Programme. Aimed at organisations with a potential large ‘customer’ base – such as businesses, sporting clubs, unions, charities, educational faculties etc. – the programme guarantees affiliates a minimum monthly payment of £1 per customer signed up to the £14.99 unmetered service. The payment rises as more customers sign up. “NeonHippo aims to develop online revenue generating associations by maximising the natural integrity of existing brand names,” explains NeonHippo Chief Executive Officer Greg Rudd. “As an affiliate our clients become Virtual Internet Service Providers (vISP) to their own customers. NeonHippo provides and manages the service in the background, and our affiliate companies provide their branding and presence. We handle the hosting, maintenance, support, customer care and all other aspects of the service, while they take onboard their own marketing and PR. More over, partners will receive a revenue share each month for subscribers who join through the service.” As far as the affiliate’s customers are aware, the service is run by the organisation to which they have an association with – a football club or a High Street chain for instance. For the £14.99 monthly payment, the customer gets: § Unmetered Internet Access 24/7 with no call charges or set-up fees § Branding to fit in with the vISP’s existing on-line and off-line marketing strategy § 7 Email Addresses in the name of the affiliate partner § 10Mb Webspace § Access to more than 25,000 Newsgroups § Technical Support, charged at National rate “NeonHippo offers one of the top unmetered services currently available in the UK,” continues Rudd. “ The service is a full FRIACO one so our affiliates can be sure they are giving to their customers a quality product at a very competitive price. We can configure our service so it dovetails into existing Internet and mail systems, meaning the vISP programme can be an extension of an organisation’s existing web strategy. Any e-mail newsletters, web-casts and other digital content programmes that are currently in place can be incorporated into the vISP service to give extra value-add to what is already an extremely competitive offer.” NeonHippo has also already signed an affiliate agreement with 24-7Freecall who will offer the £14.99 service to home users from August 22nd. Internet users can sign up for this service at www.24-7freecall.net Another eight undisclosed partner companies are currently signed up and will be launching unmetered access services over the next few months.
