Announcing the Prefinery Affiliate & Referral Program

Today we are announcing the release of the Prefinery Affiliate & Referral Program, which allows you to earn 20% of signup revenue per customer that signs up through your affiliate link and then 5% of their payments for life!

For example, if a customer signs up for our popular Silver Plan for Web Betas using your affiliate link, you would earn an immediate $19.80.  And, since you earn a recurring commission of 5% of their monthly payments, after 6 months you would have earned another $29.70.  That’s nearly $50 from just one customer!  Of course, you earn even more when customers sign up for our Gold and Platinum plans.

Build Your Launching Soon Page with Prefinery

Did you know that you can build your Launching Soon page (also known as a Coming Soon page or Teaser page) with Prefinery?

Over the past two years hundreds of startups, just like you, have chosen to launch with Prefinery’s beta management platform.

All of Prefinery’s plans, even our free plan, come the ability to build a fully customizable, one-page promotional website for your new application. A Prefinery Launching Soon page is perfect if you’re in a pre-launch stage and you’re not yet ready to spend lots of money on fancy web hosting. You can even use your own domain name!

Use your Launching Soon page in combination with your Prefinery invitation form to attract potential customers and measure interest during, or even before, development. And, when combined with our Viral Invite System, we encourage applicants to share your beta with their friends via email and across their social networks, such as Facebook, Twitter, Digg, StumbleUpon, Delicious, and more. From within your Prefinery administrator interface you can easily see, and reward, testers which are helping you go viral.

So, what are you waiting for?  Launch with Prefinery today!

Product Update: Social Sharing and Viral Invites

All Web betas now come with our Social Sharing Form which encourages applicants to virally spread the word of your beta via email and their social network!

Prefinery Social Sharing Form

After a tester applies for your beta, we show our Social Sharing Form and provide them with a unique short URL that we encourage be shared out via email and social networks. The Social Sharing Form also includes quick, one-click links which allow the tester to share your beta across their social networks, such as Facebook, Twitter, Digg, StumbleUpon, Delicious, and more.

We encourage the tester to invite their friends to get priority access to your beta. Of course, we track all clicks and signups for their short URL and within your Prefinery administrator interface you can easily see which testers are helping you go viral.

As always, we’d love to hear your feedback!

Springwise discovers Prefinery and discusses how the Prefinery software, and workflow, can manage both your ‘coming soon’ page and your beta!

VentureBeat covers the new Prefinery Feedback Widget, a new feature that helps you find out what your beta users think of your product.

Product Update: Organize Testers into Groups

You can now organize your testers into groups!

Prefinery Tester Groups

Groups are a great way to organize your testers. For example, you could organize your testers by audience, such as Friends & Family or Press.  Or, you could separate Alpha testers from Beta testers.  Doing so would make it very simple to send invitations to all Alpha testers at once, while waiting to send invitations to Beta testers.

When viewing your testers you can filter by Group.  And, when exporting your testers you can do so on a per-group basis.

Product Update: HTML E-mail Templates

You can now send your beta invitation emails as HTML!

Prefinery HTML Email Templates

When you create your HTML email, be sure to also create a plain-text version.  Some ancient email clients cannot read HTML emails, but you can help these technology laggards by creating a plain-text version.

Of course, you can opt to only send plain-text emails if HTML isn’t your thing.

Product Update: Invite-a-Friend Widget

Are you ready to make your beta go viral?

Prefinery’s new Invite-a-Friend widget lets your testers invite their friends to your beta!

Prefinery Invite-a-Friend Widget

Here’s how it works:

You decide how many friends each tester is allowed to invite, then just sit back and let news of your awesome site spread by word of mouth!

You have complete control over the body of the Invite-a-Friend email invitation and your testers are even able to add their own personal note.  It takes less than 5 minutes to install the Invite-a-Friend widget on your site, so give it a try today!
