Tips for making more referrals

Tips for making more referrals


  • Instead of just using banners to link to RewardsCentral from your web site, write a personal recommendation and link it to RewardsCentral with your custom referral link. Studies have shown that text links in context are far more effective than banners when it comes to referral programs.
  • Drive more traffic to your web site. That way you'll be getting a higher click-through on your referral link and more successful referrals.
  • Test the referral links from your web site. Wondering why you haven't made any referrals yet? Maybe you're using the incorrect URL to refer members. Test it yourself and see if your RewardsCentral Username shows up in the referrer's Username part of the join form.
  • Use an email signature file to promote RewardsCentral in all emails that you send. Include your referral link and a short description of RewardsCentral in a signature file that gets appended to every email you send. See your email program's help pages for information on how to do this.
  • The referral email is great to use, however make sure you include an email recommendation written in your own words as it will have a much greater effect.
  • Network in the real world! Print on a business card sized slip a brief description of the RewardsCentral program, the web address, and your referral details (RewardsCentral Username or full referral link), and distribute the cards to interested friends and contacts.
  • Target your message. If your friends are interested in charity, they might be interested in RewardsCentral charity donations. Savers might like the RewardsCentral eBank concept. Online shoppers will welcome the RewardsCentral shopping rewards. This applies to your web site too. Think about what kind of people visit your site. Tailor your message to your audience and increase your referrals.
Refer a friend to RewardsCentral and be rewarded!
