Aliso Viejo, CA -The Internet Solutions Division of - Smith Micro Software, Inc. (Nasdaq: SMSI), a developer and marketer of Internet communication software, today announced an aggressive new incentive program aimed at increasing awareness and sales of its popular WebCatalog eCommerce and Web publishing software. Through the program, current and potential WebCatalog users have the ability to earn hundreds of dollars in cash or credit toward an additional software license, by becoming an affiliate and simply displaying the "Powered by WebCatalog" logo on their web sites.
Smith Micro will pay a commission to each affiliate each time a Web surfer links to Smith Micro's Web site through the "Powered by WebCatalog" logo and then downloads a demo of the company's WebCatalog software. The commission will be based on the current WebCatalog retail price, $2,495.95. Every purchase of WebCatalog software resulting from the display of the "Powered by WebCatalog" logo will generate additional compensation for the company's affiliates.

Additionally, Smith Micro affiliates will also benefit by the ability to advertise their Web sites on Smith Micro's conexs.com Internet service at a discounted rate.
