Publisher Program Tiers

This Publisher Program is designed to match needs of our publishers. The program allows you to differentiate your company and products through enhanced marketing - whilst at the same time allowing smaller businesses or start-up publishers to reach a global audience cost effectively.

There is a monthly membership fee to join our program and for this fee you get clearly defined marketing benefits so that you can easily budget your costs and know exactly what you are getting for your money.

The ComponentSource Publisher Program has four tiers, each tailored to the differing marketing goals of publishers who develop components and tools for resale.

  • Author - Our entry-level tier with online listings & multi-lingual customer services.
  • Professional Partner - Tailored product Web site advertising and email marketing.
  • Corporate Partner - Adds enhanced online, email and paper catalog advertising.
  • Enterprise Partner - Customized sales and marketing services for our larger partners.
