New Site Update

General
A few months ago we announced the coming relaunch of ViralNetworks (with a new design and new features): New Version Coming Soon! Unfortunately, we underestimated the amount of time necessary to develop all the new features. We actually expected to be late for the relaunch, but not that late... Anyhow, we would like to apologize for the delay (and the lack of updates) but also want to ensure you that we're definitely on the way! The site is set up already but some of the new features are not ready yet, and the accounting system needs to be worked on. We really want the site to be complete at relaunch, so no one is disappointed! This time, we will not give you any date for the relaunch, but you can definitely expect the new site for the coming summer. Again, thanks a lot to all the ...

New Version Coming Soon!

General
You may have noticed that things went pretty quiet on ViralNetworks these last few weeks... Well, there's a good reason for that! Our team has been working on the design and development of the new version of ViralNetworks. It will have a new design, a better usability and some great new features that we're sure most of you will love! Here is a preview of the new design: We can't wait to launch this new version but still have to work on it a little more. The wait shouldn't be too long though. We expect to relaunch ViralNetworks sometime in January. The beginning of 2010 looks very promising! We just couldn't find a better way to start the new year! We'd also like to take this opportunity to thank all the members who have been supporting us and especially those who gave us their fe...

We have added Direct links to pages in ViralNetworks and have included your affiliate link embeded in it.

General, Training Videos, Video Post
The idea of ViralNetworks is to create a site that is super helpful for members, in fact we want you to find reason to login every day! This is done by providing a platform for you to use to grow connections, your list, reputation and grow your business and increase your income. Well we have now added Google Adsense around the site, and this is great news, as it means that is some more revenue coming in that we can share each month with you, the member. As you know we have a Revenue Sharing Pool - so the more money the site brings in, the more we share with members. Here is where the new addition gets really good for paid members though. We have set it up so that it is a revenue sharing model, and as a paid member (from contributing upwards) you can put in your adsense ID if you have...
