TurnHere Previews New Affiliate Program -- Primed to Expand the Internet Video Revolution to Businesses Everywhere

Program Partners Receive Referral Fee for Bringing Online Video Services to Their Customers

EMERYVILLE, CA--(Marketwire - June 3, 2009) - TurnHere, Inc., the leading online video content creation company, unveiled a new affiliate program that allows sites to earn money by promoting TurnHere's custom online video services. Currently in limited preview, the program rewards affiliates for each referred customer.

Business of all types -- from dentists to dog groomers -- are turning to video to differentiate their business, engage potential customers, and generate new business from the Internet. According to The Kelsey Group, more than a quarter-million small businesses will be using video online by 2010. And video is proving to be one of the fastest growing areas of online advertising, with spending projected to top $1 billion in 2010 according to eMarketer.

Through the new program, partners who work with small businesses are able to promote video services to their customers online and refer them to a customized, co-branded page on Turnhere.com to order a video. TurnHere handles the sale, production, fulfillment and billing for the video; and the referred customers are able to add the new video to their profile on the referring site and elsewhere. Best of all, the affiliate partners earn referral fees for every video sold through the program.

The TurnHere video package includes:

--  60-second TurnHere-produced video featuring the customer's
    business/product/service
--  1 year of hosting (included FREE) and easy-to-use video embed code
--  Promotion and placement of the video to top Internet sites such as
    YouTube, Yahoo! Video, MySpace and Google Local
    

Regularly priced under $1,000 (and available now at an introductory promotional price), TurnHere's low-cost model makes video affordable and appealing to businesses of all sizes.

"In this economic climate, small businesses need ways to affordably reach customers looking for their services. The personal engagement created by video has proven to be very effective at driving new business to local vendors," said Bud Rosenthal, CEO of TurnHere.

"This new affiliate program is a seamless way for sites and publishers to offer high value video services to their clients, while creating a new revenue stream and compelling content for their users along the way," he continued.

TurnHere has already begun accepting requests to join the affiliate preview. Partners such as leading specialty travel website BedandBreakfast.com and wedding vendor directory WeddingBook.com are already live. BedandBreakfast.com aims to provide richer advertising content in the B&B space while giving its B&B and inn members the ability to compete with larger lodging establishments through professional video profiles that capture the unique qualities of each property firsthand. WeddingBook.com has also joined the program to offer its vendors a distinct way to showcase their services.

TurnHere is currently opening its preview to a limited number of partners. For more information about the program and to express interest in joining, send an email to affiliates@turnhere.com.
