Getting referrals from people you know
Chances are, you have a lot of friends and family members who would like a free iPod or other gift just as much as you do. A good place to start is your contact list in your email program. Send out your referral link to your friends with some information about the site you are working on so that they know that it is legitimate. We suggest including a link to this site so that your referrals sign up correctly. Remember, don't spam your link to people you don't know, and be aware that only one account per household is allowed.
Advertise your referral link
Make posters and put them up around your neighbourhood. The more people you expose your referral link to, the better your chances are of getting referrals. Be creative!
What are Conga Lines? A Conga Line is a great way to get referrals for your freebie sites if you don't have enough friends who want to sign up. How it works is you join the conga line by signing up for the site under the top referral link in the Conga Line (note : this must be the first time you have signed up for that site, because you can only register for each site once). Then, you complete the offer requirements and once you receive credit for your offer your referral link is added to the Conga Line. When the person at the top gets all their referrals, the next person moves up, and so on. Conga Lines are best when they are SHORT - meaning that there aren't many people ahead of you in line.
