How The Reader Rewards Program Works

As noted, each month we will be adding to the list of quality giveaways- ebooks, whitepapers, software, and product/service discounts – that willbe available for you to download.

A point value will be assigned to each of the “rewards” offered. Thepoint value will be dependent on what we determine to be the relativevalue of the giveaway. Some rewards will only have a value of one pointwhile others may be valued as high as 8 points.

To collect a given reward, you need to accumulate the necessary pointsfor that reward. You do that simply by reading the SiteProNews newsletter.You can receive a maximum of 1 point per week by reading at least 3 of the6 issues we publish weekly (includes dedicated advertiser mailings).

Once you reach the required point level for any given reward, thelink for that reward will automatically become a live download link.Until then, it will remain greyed out.

In brief, whatever your point total, you will be able to download anyreward that has an equal or lesser point value. So – if you have 4 points, you won’t qualify for a free ExactSeek ad, but you will beable to download ebooks, whitepapers and software.

IMPORTANT: To receive any points, you must ensure that you receivethe SiteProNews newsletter (white label “” when setting youre-mail or spam filter rules) and that you do not have “images” turned off inyour email program settings.
