***** ICC Referral Program *****

Referring people to ICC is rewarding!  For every person you refer to ICC that
purchases a membership,  you'll earn points, up to 810 ($27) and will have
the opportunity to convert the points to cash! The referral system is
sophisticated and puts you in charge! You'll know at a glance what stage
each referral is at, from signing up, to making a membership purchase. In
addition to referring a friend,  you can place a logo or banner on your site
or blog and you will see when someone signs up and makes a membership purchase.

Payment of Commission You'll receive the following points for each referral
that makes their first purchase of any ICC membership:

Membership purchased	Points earned	Dollars equivalent 
1-month $9.95           45	        $1.50 
3-months $24.95	        113	        $3.77 
6-months $39.95	        180	        $6.00
1-year $69.95	        315             $10.50 
2-years $124.95	        563             $18.77 
3-years $179.95         810             $27.00

ICC will allow users to convert in their points for cash for point balances
equal or over 1500 points ($50).  Payments will be made via the referrers'
Paypal accounts upon request. Payment will be in US dollars.

How to join the ICC Referral Program If you don't have an ICC store account,
simpy register one in our Store. it's easy and free!

Once you've registered, LOGIN to our store and simply click on the "My Referrals" 
from the left hand menu. Once there, you will see three important things highlighted 
in orange:

1) The first important item is your personal Referral URL. It's your own
personal link you can share and use in banners and links, blog and websites,
etc. Anyone arriving on our website from that link, will be tagged as yours
and if they purchase an ICC membership we'll reward you points based on the 
membership purchased.


2) The second key item is a "Send Invitations" section, where we'll help you by
mailing all your friends and contacts you wish. All you have to do is enter
the emails from friends and contacts inviting them to try out ICC. You can
even import your address book of emails by clicking on the Import Contacts
(plaxo) button. This is our recommended best option, as it will show you at
all times the status of your invitations. Here's an example:

3) Third and last, there's an optional message you can enter to personalize your
invitation, greeting and inviting your contacts and friends to try out ICC.
