I got an email the other day that RackSpace is re-launching their Partner Network, and that I would have to sign a new contract. That was met with an ugh, as I figured I had to go through the old process of printing, signing, and faxing the agreement back to them.
But then I saw that they were using this company EchoSign, and that it was a quick and easy process online.
I’ve had accounts with affiliate networks for so long that I don’t know which, if any, are using this sort of thing. But it would be great to see this with the affiliate networks and affiliate programs.
It’s a green thing, and a convenience thing.
