Microsoft has a referral program called “Microsoft Affiliate”, that currently offers two products, “Windows Live Toolbar” and “OneCare”.
Windows Live Toolbar is free and Microsoft will pay you $1 for every successful installation on a computer based in US. You can promote the Toolbar on your blog either through banner ads or regular text links. In the case of Windows Live OneCare, you get paid $3 for every download completed on a computer that’s located either in Canada or US.
Once you signup, typically the review process takes between 24-48 hours. Once approved, youll be one of just a few affiliates in the network and have a great opportunity to market these great offers.
