To get more exposure for your listings you will want to upgrade your account to a higher level account. The higher the account level, the more exposure your listings receive. Also, the higher the account, the more discount you receive on promotion options. In the table below you will see the different account levels, their costs, and the tasks that can be performed at each level, along with the benefits or each account level.

The Signup Cost is a one-off cost, and is deducted from your account balance immediately. If you are upgrading to a higher level account from an account above Bronze level then the signup cost will be the difference between the signup charges (already paid) for your current account level and the level you are upgrading to.

 

 

The Monthly Subscription fee is the ongoing cost per month. Your subscription payments will be deducted from your account balance on the monthly anniversary date of your signup. So, if you sign up for a Bronze account (free) on 22 April, then upgrade your account to Silver on 3 May, your first monthly subscription payment will be deducted from your account balance on 22 May.

 


Account Funding
To keep things as simple and easy as possible, and because we do not agree with multiple ongoing charges to your credit card, you must pre-fund your account with an amount of your choice. The signup fee, ongoing monthly subscriptions and any promotions you choose to buy, are deducted from your aFreeGo.com account balance.

 


Site Sponsors
The Diamond level account is also a Site Sponsor position on the aFreeGo.com web site. As a site sponsor, you receive all the benefits of every account level (as listed above) as well as the following benefits :
A link to your site from every page on aFreeGo.com (see the Site Sponsor links in the Contents section to the left)

A link to your site from all pages where we specifically mention our Site Sponsors (eg All download pages etc)

 


RSS Feed
The main RSS feed from aFreeGo.com is automatically updated every hour and one random updated listing is added to the feed details.

At Silver level or above your added / updated listing is guaranteed to be added to the RSS feed.

 

 

Shared Premiere Listing Slots
Every category and subcategory page has Premiere Listings near the top of the page. These listings get more exposure than standard listings due to their color and positioning on the page. There are a maximum of five Premiere Listings on any given page, with the last listing being a shared slot that is updated with a different software listing every hour. Only software listings for Authors who maintain a membership level of Silver or above will be displayed in these shared Premiere Listing slots.

 

At Silver level or above your software listings become eligible to appear in the shared Premiere Listing slot for the SubCategory that your software is listed in.

At Gold level or above your listings also become eligible to appear in the shared Premiere Listing slot for the Category that your software is listed in.

At Platinum level or above your listings also become eligible to appear in the shared Premiere Listing slot on the Home page of aFreeGo.com

 

 

Coupons
From time to time we offer special coupons, which add value to any account funding you perform. These coupons either add a fixed amount to any account funds you purchase, or they add a percentage of the amount you purchase. Coupon information may be found on multiple web sites around the Internet, and are emailed out at times.
