However, the most difficult part is to get the referrals. Here I’ll be discussing a few ways in which you can easily get referrals. Don’t get into the trap of scam sites which claim to provide large number of referrals at some price. They are mostly scams.
First of all, send a “personal” message to all your friends on social networking websites like Facebook, Orkut, Myspace, etc. The personal message should include your positive experience with the website whose referral link you are sharing. Also include a line or two about how joining through your referral will help you in making more from the website. Since they are your friends, they would definitely like to join through your referral if they feel you are going to benefit from it.
There are a lot many groups and forums on social networking sites. You can join relevant groups like “Work from home”, “Earn extra money”, etc. Then include a brief summary of the website along with your referral link. You can also include the referral links in the About Me or Bio section of your profile under the heading ‘Sites where I earn money”.
If you have a blog or website, you can post banners on the top or on the sides. You can also write articles about your money making experience on your blog and attach your referral links along with it. If you are a freelance writer, you can write about the money earning websites on various freelance writing websites along with the referral link. You can use Squidoo or Hubpages for this purpose.
People who are regular on some or the other forum can attach a referral link/banner in their signature. If you are a trustworthy member, people will definitely like to go through your link. You can even create topics on relevant forums for the same. Remember, the more interesting you make your money making experience, the better response will you get.
You can even use websites like Redgage and Ximbo to share your referral links. You might like to write about the money making on these websites in addition to the referral link. You can also use twitter to publicize your referral link.
Getting referrals isn’t difficult if you know how to approach things. These were some of the most simple, basic and risk-free ways of getting referrals. It’s better to go the conventional way than to spend money on scams which do no good to your online income.
