Hushmail is a Web-based e-mail service that lets you send and receive email in security. Hushmail messages, and their attachments, are encrypted using Open PGP standard algorithms. Due to the unsecured nature of traditional e-mail server to server communications your e-mail communications could be intercepted by unscrupulous characters, so I believe that as we come to rely more and more on e-mail communications securing our e-mails by the use of encryption mechanisms is becoming increasingly necessary. The original e-mail standard was never designed with security in mind – it wasn’t necessary in those days as the “internet” was not public, it was just a small network of private military and government network joined by communications lines which were completely inaccessible to anyone but a few privileged few. So with that in mind, I believe services such as Hushmail tap a potentially very huge market. You can get a piece of this action by taking advantage of their affiliate program which I must admit I should have reviewed a long time ago, but I guess the old adage “better late than never” can come to my defense.
So how does this affiliate program work?
Hushmail Affiliates have access to banners and text links that can be inserted in any website and displayed on any computer. When a visitor to your website follows these links and makes a purchase, you’ll earn 20% commission!
You can earn commission on:
The premier secure web-based email system, with many additional paid services available.
Secure email for companies of any size using their own domain.
Hush Secure Forms:
Encrypted web form submissions delivered to a Hushmail account.
How will my commissions be paid?
They will mail you a check. When you come to think of it this isn’t such a bad method. Paypal would have been great because it would eliminate the delay caused by snail mail, but I am not one to make policies for Hushmail so you’ll just have to be thankful to be paid via checks.
What are the potential earnings?
Let’s take for example someone purchasing the Hushmail Premium service which costs $29,99 per year. If your referral purchases that service you will get 20% of that which is $6. The price for the Hushmail Business service varies, but the starting commission is $10. Hushmail Secure Forms cost $49,99 and your commission will be $10. So as you can see it is more advantageous to recruit business customers, but naturally they are more rare, so you’ll most likely see the majority of your revenue from individuals purchasing the Hushmail Premium package.
