Getting Referrals

Referrals.

Everyone wants them, but nobody seems to know how to get them.
Hopefully these few tips will help you.

***PROMOTE YOUR REFERRAL LINK***

That’s obvious. Nobody is just going to find your link and join, you have to advertise it. Where? Paid to read programs, paid for action programs such as this one, traffic exchanges, blogs, videos, and moneymaking forums are good places to post your link. You can even advertise offline.

*Paid to read (PTR) programs–write up a nice, HONEST ad with your ref link to email to their members. Members get paid a small amount to view your message. Guaranteed refs? NO, but it will get your link out there to people that are interested in making money online. Free? NO, but if you belong to such programs, you can use your earnings to redeem for ads to have no out of pocket costs.

*Paid for action (PFA) programs–these are programs like this one, where you are paid to sign up for things. Advertise your link there, people sign up, you get a referral. Guaranteed refs? YES Free? NO, but if you belong to such programs, you can use your earnings to redeem for ads to have no out of pocket costs.

*Traffic exchanges–you view other members’ advertisements, they view yours. Simple, just submit your ref link and start viewing webpages. The BIG downside of these programs is to get any sizable amount of hits to your site is very time consuming. Use MANUAL traffic exchanges ONLY, as autosurf exchanges are a waste of time. Guaranteed refs? NO Free? YES, the only cost is your time.

*Blogs–we all know what these are, so if you have a blog (or website), advertise that ref link! Play up all of your program’s good points, but BE HONEST! Do not oversell or lie just for the sake of getting a referral. Guaranteed refs? NO Free? YES

*Videos–there are lots of people who use video to advertise their favorite program. Show what you have earned or received there, point out the features of the program. I personally have never used this method, but I am told that You Tube is a good place to advertise. Again, I have no idea how reliable this method is. Guaranteed refs? NO Free? YES

*Forums–again, we all know what a forum is. Find forums related to money making and programs similar to this one. Locate the referrals wanted thread and advertise your ref link there. Again, play up the good points of your program but DO NOT LIE! Always read the terms (TOS) of the forum to see if ref links are allowed to be posted. Guaranteed refs? NO Free? YES

*Offline advertising–post a card with your program and ref link on the public bulletin board at the library, the supermarket, school, the laundromat, anywhere that such advertising is allowed. Be creative in where you leave your referral card, but ALWAYS make sure such things are welcome. Guaranteed refs? NO Free? YES

**Please remember, NONE of these methods will guarantee ACTIVE referrals. You should plan on only 10% or less of any referrals to be active. Most people will join and never return. Also, you can promote your link thousands and thousands of times in various places and NEVER get a referral. You can’t force people to join, that is why it is important to play up all the good points of your program HONESTLY. Do not lie for the sake of getting referrals, as word of mouth is a powerful thing in the paid-to community, and the last thing you want is to have the program’s reputation tarnished.**

I hope these few tips will help you :-)
