San Francisco-based CNET Inc. signed a number of customers for its 1999 Merchant Program for computer hardware and software resellers.
The merchants include Egghead.com, NECX Direct and HardwareStreet.com Inc., all of which renewed their 1998 “premier” status, as well as two new premier merchants, ClubComputer.com and Virtual Technology Corporation. CNET also signed agreements with five preferred merchants for the 1999 program, including Beyond.com, Computers4SURE.com, CDW, PC Mall, and Buy.com.
“CNET’s Merchant Program offers a variety of ad opportunities that allow resellers to deliver the right messages at the right time,” said Martin Green, CNET’s vice president of strategic development. “By marketing to CNET users at the different stages of the purchasing process, CNET’s premier and preferred merchants have realized increased visibility and marketshare.”
