Referring your friends and family to Illink is easy.  Follow some of these tips to help build your Market Partners commissions:

Tips for making referrals:

Referring your friends, neighbors and business clients to Illink is not a difficult selling proposition.  Illink is very competitive in the ISP industry and few if any other ISP´s can match Illink´s worldclass services and offers.

  • Just talk about Illink - When you´re in a conversation with your friends, tell them about what great service you´re getting from Illink.  Ask them to take a look at your ISP and see if they´d like to switch.
  • Give someone a Brochure - Brochures are a great way to tell someone about Illink without really getting into a conversation if you don´t have time to.  But these can be expensive to give away to just anyone.  Make sure who ever you give a brochure to is someone looking for a new ISP service.
  • Put a sign-up button or banner ad on your website - If you have a website, place a Illink banner ad or one of our animated buttons on your website for automatic click-through to Illink’s sign-up page with your Referral Code.  Instructions for adding banners and buttons to your website can be found on the Advertising page.

Some Guidelines

Guidelines are a set of rules Illink provides to ensure that the Market Partners referral program remains open, honest and rewarding for all of our Illink subscribers.  Unfortunately, there are always a few who become over zealous in their quest for new referrals and make a nuisance of themselves.  By following these guidelines, you will be able to make many happy referrals and keep your friends too.  :)


  • Talk with your friends and family members about joining Illink.  It is okay to e-mail your close friends and relatives to tell them about Illink. We really don’t consider this limited amount of e-mail spamming.
  • If you´re a business with Internet or business related walk-in traffic, put out a stand of brochures.
  • If you have a website, place a Illink  banner ad or one of our animated buttons on your website for automatic click-through with your Referral Code.  Instructions for adding banners and buttons to your website can be found on the Advertising page.


  • Unless you´re a business with walk-in customers, don´t solicit people you don´t know about signing up.  Standing in a mall handing out brochures is prohibited by most malls unless you have their permission.
  • SPAM is when you send e-mail to people you don’t know with an offer to buy or do something.  Do not SPAM anyone you don’t personally know with an unsolicited e-mail about joining up with Illink. Spamming is grounds for immediate termination of any Illink  account under Illink's Terms of Service.  If you know them and they know you, like close friends or relatives, then it’s probably okay to e-mail them.
  • Illink´s referral rebate is designed to help you earn your way toward free service and even some extra cash.  While it is certainly possible to sign-up several hundred people over time and earn a sizable amount, the program is not designed to replace your day job.

Helping a new referral sign-up with Illink is very easy and you can do so in any number of ways as outlined below.  Be sure you give your Referral Code to whom ever you sign up so that you can be rewarded for their new account.  NOTE: Illink does not accept any new account without a Referral Code.  In this way, we make sure all referrals are awarded to the appropriate referring customer.

Hey, what’s my Referral Code?
