NakedSword, AEBN Merge Affiliate Programs

SAN FRANCISCO - Gay video-on-demand provider has closed its affiliate site and moved its affiliate programs to .

NakedSword said the unification of affiliate programs had been part of its plans since the company merged with AEBN in 2007. The transition, taking effect Monday, June 30, will allow affiliates to continue promoting NakedSword, its products and its content with new and existing sales tools, linking codes and statistics.

The AEBN affiliate program offers flat payouts and revshare options to affiliates who promote NakedSword.

"We have received a lot of feedback from our affiliates and want to do all we can to create the best experience for them," NakedSword founder Tim Valenti said. "We have built NakedSword to be a leading gay consumer brand and are excited to be partnering with the strongest affiliate portal in the industry. This merger presents affiliates with great new opportunities."

Affiliates should expect future payments to come in one check from AEBN.

"We have painstakingly tested and retested our new systems and are confident that the transition of our affiliate program will be seamless," NakedSword Marketing Director Albert Jones said. "I welcome all existing affiliates to come to me directly with any concerns, and [I] look forward to hearing from new affiliates in the near future."
