HostGator announces Black Friday 2010 promotionNick Throlson
HostGator is offering 50 percent off everything from 12 midnight-5 a.m. CST, and 80 percent off from 5 a.m.-9 a.m. CST, while supplies last. It’s a first come first serve event that no one will want to miss. From 9 a.m.-11:59 p.m. CST, or after 80 percent off accounts have sold out, Host Gator will continue to offer 50 percent off everything.
The Black Friday promotion begins at 12-midnight on Friday, Nov. 26, 2010 CST (-6GMT) and will run until 11:59 p.m. CST (-6 GMT). During this time, affiliates will receive their full, regular commission on all Black Friday sales. The event promises to be a record-breaking day for HostGator and all its affiliates.
The discounts apply to all accounts and all term lengths. This allows all affiliate visitors and friends to receive 80 percent off up to three years worth of hosting. That’s $35.64 for three full years of hosting, and includes shared hosting, reseller hosting, VPS hosting and dedicated servers.
The promotion marks a first in HostGator history. The firm has never conducted a promotion that included dedicated servers, all accounts and terms lengths, plus allowed affiliates to retain 100 percent of their commissions on every sale sent to them on Black Friday. The promotion boosts sales for HostGator, in addition to putting an amazing amount of money into the pockets of affiliates.
Depending on the time the deal is struck during the promotion, it provides customers with the opportunity to obtain shared hosting for a s little as 99 cents per month, reseller hosting for as low as $4.99 per month, VPS hosting for only $3.99 per month and dedicated servers for as little as $34.80 per month. The deal is extremely appealing and offers affiliates the opportunity to make a significant amount of money during the Black Friday 2010 promotion.
There are a number of means by which the offer can be promoted. Affiliates can post it on their blog, on Twitter, Facebook and other forums, and even use their email lists. Don’t forget to let friends and family know about the specials, and affiliates can even push all their hosting related traffic to HostGator for big earnings.
