Unique Ways to Get Referrals:
1. Post on GPT forums.
This is a great idea, get involved in forums that are about the get paid industry and put your referral link in your signature. Don’t make the mistake of spamming the forum otherwise you will find your post deleted and most likely your account at the forum banned. What you want to do is become a part of the forum community and as more and more people read what you have to say, you will find people will start to click your referral link out of curiosity, this will lead to sign ups. (might not be accepted by some forums).
2. Tell friends and family.
Such an easy thing to do but the most often this over looked all too often, a lot of people that don’t understand how it is possible to make money online maybe skeptical at first, but start showing them your checks and/or payment proofs and they will soon change their tune and want to give it a go for themselves.
3. Letter box drop your neighborhoods.
Making up flyers and doing a letterbox drop can be an effective way of getting referrals, just keep in mind the more flyers you get into letter boxes the more referrals you are likely to get. This can be time consuming though and will cost you a little bit of money up front to get the flyers made up. (just don't get caught :p kiddin'
4. Walk through parking lots putting flyers on cars.
It is a quick way to get your flyer to many people, the problem is if those flyers get read or not, so if you are going to try this make sure your flyers stand out.
5. Write a blog.
If you want to get serious about gaining referrals to any program then this is a must do, make a simple blog about your get paid to program, the trick is then to get traffic to your blog. This I will make a seperate post about and go into more detail on how to drive traffic to your site.
6. Find chat rooms and groups that have the sole purpose of “Easy Money Making”
It isn’t all that time consuming and can be fun and you most likely pick up a few tips and tricks from the chat room as well.
7. Write a classified ad.
Advertising in your local newspaper could have some very good results, your ad will be read by thousands of people and if only 100 people of those thousands bother to check out the site you are advertising and if out of those only half sign up, then that is potentially 50 referrals you could get just for running the one ad. The more I think about this, the more I think that I will give it a go.
