New referral programs from Google

Early this month, Google has launched two new referral programs; Google Pack and Picasa. Now, you will have more sources of revenue in addition to AdSense, AdWords and Firefox referral programs. So, let’s take a closer look at Google Pack and Picasa; what are they all about.

Google Pack

Google Pack is a compilation of useful software for your computer. It consists of Google Earth, Google Desktop, Picasa, Google Toolbar for IE, Screensaver, Mozilla Firefox, Lavasoft Ad-Aware, Norton Antivirus 2005 SE, Adobe Reader 7, Google Talk, Google Video Player, RealPlayer, and Gallery Player HD Images.

Now you should see why it is called Google Pack; it has so much free software that takes about a paragraph to write! So, what you will get if you refer a person to download this pack? You will get up to $2. Not so much money but it still money, right?

You might ask, ‘What about if my referrals already have some of the software?’ Don’t worry because they can customize which software they are going to download.


Picasa is an easy-to-use picture software that enables you to locate, organize, touch-up, share and make a visual album in just a few simple steps. Honestly, it is not a powerful graphic editor compares to Adobe Photoshop, but if you want something easy to use to edit your picture, this software is the answer.

If you have a picture blog, this software might be useful for you as you can upload photos straight from Picasa to your photo blog. And after you have tried Picasa, promote the software to your visitors. Remember, it is wise to try first before you promoting a thing. This enables you to write an honest review about it.

With every Picasa installed from your referral link, you will get up to $1.


I’m not promoting these programs as I haven’t tried them personally. So, I don’t feel good about promoting them. But if you have tried them, what are you waiting for? Promote them and start earning cash!

P.S. You need a Google AdSense account to refer those programs to your friends. If you still don’t have a Google AdSense account, you can sign up by using my referral button at the side bar
