The new NovaMind web site brings a huge amount of new and updated information about Mind Mapping, example Mind Maps, more complete and easy to understand product information, streamlined download, and redesigned online store. The new technologies and content are now being leveraged to the benefit of NovaMind affiliates and resellers.
NovaMind founder, Gideon King says:
The feedback on the new web site has been fantastic. Although we have not yet started promoting the new web site, we have already seen significant increases in visitor numbers, and a huge jump in the average number of page views per visitor.
People are telling us that the new web site is a massive improvement over the previous one, and they are clearly sticking around for longer and finding out more about Mind Mapping.
Now we are pleased to be able to make the power of the new web site easily available to our affiliates, so they can profit from it, as well as providing a massively improved experience for our resellers.
The Affiliate and Reseller systems
NovaMind operates an affiliate system which allows people to link to the NovaMind web site and receive a commission on sales made as a result of those links.
There is also a reseller system for people who have their own online stores and want to either manually or automatically link with the NovaMind system to generate license keys.

The new Affiliate Console
The new affiliate console improves login and password management, but the big thing is clearly the new link builder. Here are some of the key features of the link builder:
- Trivially easy to create links with your affiliate code in them, with just a click of a few buttons.
- Links can be just the raw URL, links with text, or image links, and all of them are ready for you to just copy and paste the code into your emails or web sites.
- There is a library of logo and banner images that you can select from for image links, or you can paste in the URL for any image you want to use for your links.
- You can get the user sent to any page on the NovaMind web site when they click the link, and your affiliate id will be set.
- You can get the user sent direct to the NovaMind online store with products already added to their shopping cart – for instance, if you had a business web site, you might create a link that adds both NovaMind Platinum and the Business Guide to Mind Mapping to their cart.
- When you generate the link, the system both gives you the code you need to copy and paste for your uses, and a live preview of the link.
The biggest new areas of the web site are the Mind Mapping section, the products pages, and the Gallery. They are all designed to be great places to send people to, in order for them to get the information specific to their needs. The Mind Mapping area has 14 brand new pages on different aspects of Mind Mapping. The new product pages give people a lot more information about the products in a nicer format and are more easily accessible. The Gallery has lots of example Mind Maps which have been created in NovaMind 5, so people can understand what they can do with the software. All pages on the web site can be linked to directly, so affiliates can send targeted messages to their contacts, knowing that they will receive the right information when they visit the NovaMind web site…and that the affiliate code is recorded so they can receive their commission.
The new reseller console
The reseller console has been completely rewritten, and it’s much better in every way. Here’s a run-down of the key updates:
- New, easy to use login system and menu system.
- The main screen shows you the balance of your account so you can keep track of it at a glance.
- The “Generate license keys” system is all done from within a single, easy to understand screen.
- Any validation issues are picked up immediately.
- Only the fields that are required are shown.
- There is a new popup display of the license costs for confirmation before placing the order, making it very clear what you are getting.
- You get instant confirmation of success from within the system.
- There is a new “View Account” system which lists all the license keys you have purchased, who they were for, when they were purchased, and your purchase price for them.
- The “View Account” system also shows you all the payments you have made for the license keys, when they were received, and their order numbers.
- It also shows any outstanding balance, and provides a button to instantly pay the outstanding balance.
- The payment system has been simplified significantly, so you just need to enter the amount you want to pay, and click a single button to initiate payment.
- The payment system now goes through the ordinary shopping cart and checkout system, giving you all the options of the online store.
- Payments received are immediately reflected in your balance.
- You can now edit all your profile settings, and these settings are transferred directly to the shopping cart when paying your account, thus reducing the amount of information you need to enter each time to almost zero.
- The password change system has been updated to make it easier to use, and to all take place on a single screen.
For those using the direct system integration, there are no changes to be made for order processing – the automated system works the same as it always has.
