Make some $$$ by successfully referring your friends and become an advocate
Hey Shape fans,
This blog is all about our advocate’s program. In case you were not aware, here at Shape, we want to reward people for sharing us with their friends and family. We also want to say thank you to anyone that purchased ShapeScale after finding out about us from a friend.
That’s is why we created our advocate’s program.
If you already know how it works, scroll down to the bottom where you can copy and paste messages we have created to share via your social media platforms and send directly to your friends.
Hopefully, you will soon be making a bit of extra cash.
So what is the advocate program?
It works like this.
- Go to our website https://shapescale.com/
- Click on REFER FRIENDS in the bottom left-hand corner of the website.
- You will be presented with a pop-up.
- After filling in your details, you will receive a unique referral link.
- This link can be shared with friends via many different platforms.
- Successfully refer a friend using your unique link and they get $50 off their order and you will receive a $50 Amazon gift card.
- It’s a win-win for you both!
6 Tips and Best Practices to earn $50 for successful referrals!
We recently spoke with some of our top advocates that are making hundreds of dollars and sometimes even thousands, to ask them their best tips for making successful referrals.
We have compiled this little cheat sheet for any of our blog readers that fancy making some extra money.
1. USE CHANNELS THAT WORK
- Facebook Newsfeeds and Twitter have limited reach. Facebook Newsfeed sharing and tweeting yields the least results because few people will see your shared post and even fewer will feel like you are talking to them directly.
Pro tip: You can counteract this by tagging and mentioning your friends in your tweets and posts.
- Reach friends directly. Direct messages are king! This includes sharing your personal link via email, Facebook Messenger, iMessage/SMS, Whatsapp, Telegram, and Instagram.
- Go beyond Social Media. Some have gone beyond and shared their link with Facebook interest groups, subReddits, forums, social bookmarking sites, and other channels such as their running clubs!
2. GET ORGANIZED
- Make a List. List all your friends, acquaintances, and relevant groups that are most likely to be interested in a ShapeScale. Has anyone just embarked on their fitness journey? Have you heard any of your friends say that they wish there was a better way to track their progress? Maybe they have mentioned that they would love to lose some excess body fat. Since these are more than likely to be your friends that would be interested in ShapeScale.
3. PERSISTENCE IS KEY
- Be persistent. Most advocates stop after their first share and give up right after. Those that succeed keep at it for weeks.
- Do Email Follow-Ups. If you have emailed friends through the advocate dashboard make sure to use the reminder function. Also, keep an eye on whether your friend has opened your email. Maybe they changed their email address or your subject line didn’t get his or her attention.
4. YOUR MESSAGING MATTERS
- Switch up your posts. We have a media library with tons of interesting photos and videos at http://bysha.pe/advocate-media and http://bysha.pe/media-kit. Also, I have included a few sample messages and quotes at the end of this email.
- Be personal. Those that personalize their individual direct messages receive much higher open and click-through rates than those that just go with the generic sharing approach. You may want to include specific benefits of ShapeScale that might be key to why your friend could be interested.
- Always be Closing. If you are not familiar with sales you might want to check out the AIDA model (Attention, Interest, Desire, and Action). It’s a model that can help you refine your message. If anything, you want to make sure to close your message with a strong “Call-to-Action” referring to their chance of saving $50 by using your referral link.
5. CATCH THEM AT THE RIGHT MOMENT
- Timing matters. That is why it is best to send your messages to friends when they can be most receptive to it. Typically morning and evening hours work incredibly well since during the day they’ll likely be busy with work and forget about your message!
6. AUTOMATE YOUR PROCESS!
- Include your Referral Link in your signatures. Be it your Gmail or favorite forum signature. It’s an easy way of continuing to share your referral link.
- Schedule in advance. Make use of social media scheduling tools like Buffer or Hootsuite. Schedule a few messages across your social media
- Pro Tip: Bulk email. This is not for everyone and should only be used with caution. But great results can be achieved by mass-emailing your list of high potentials with a tool such as Gmass.
- Create your own original content about ShapeScale.
- This could be a vlog type video on YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat and/or Twitter.
- If a video isn’t your thing it might be writing a blog post on why scales are bad for fitness tracking or the top 3 ShapeScale features that excite you the most. Don’t have a blog? Try a long-form Facebook post, Reddit, Medium or LinkedIn.
- Create your own images
