Enjoy A "Million Dollar Summer"
From Glendale, California, comes the story of CyberAge’s "Million Dollar Summer" promotional campaign, intended to provide Webmaster affiliates with yet another reason to call the company the "AVS of Choice."

The "Million Dollar Summer" mega advertising campaign will target adult surfers in order to send qualified traffic to the program’s Webmaster affiliates. To do this, will spend a million dollars on purchasing adult keywords from search engines Google, Overture, Lycos, Msn, Yahoo, Ask Jeeves, and many others – sending this fresh traffic directly to their links pages, and thus providing new sale and up-sale opportunities for all of the program’s participating Webmasters.

According to CyberAge Marketing Manager, Gary Dginger, "We are always looking for ways to give back to our webmasters and this will be a great way to send them some fresh search engine traffic and generate more sales for our webmasters." Gary continued, "We here at CyberAge have been in the business since 1996 and we know how important our webmasters are, basically without webmasters our company, and any adult company wouldn't exist, so we went out of our way, to bring loads and loads of Fresh New Traffic from some of the top search engines out there, and we distribute that traffic back to the webmasters that made us what we are today, this will not only benefit us, but also some of the sponsors that are on the websites that use our service, so this is just a little something we are doing for the adult industry, and from what we have seen so far and some of the emails that we have been receiving, it has been working well…"

GIGA-Thanks for Rocking the Boat!

Now that everyone who attended has recovered and settled back into their work routines after this great time of drinking, dancing and daring escapades, it’s time to go and follow up on the new leads and opportunities resulting from this fabulous industry cruise, and to say a few GIGA-Thanks to the following companies for making GIGAMIX all that it was:
