Vindale Referrals: No Deadheads!

Another question that I am constantly asked on Vindale is why I don’t lead with telling friends and prospectives about the $5 Referral program

The answer starts with my belief that you should know a site thoroughly before you start referring ANYONE to it.

The next thing is that you should be able to HELP anyone who joins you in any site. Ideally, you should learn the site yourself first and then start referring people confidently. If not, you probably will not be successful.

I have tons of people who join but never do anything. They're deadheads. They haven't taken the time to learn the site. They haven't even finished filling out their profile or doing anything on the site. I find that many people want to join and immediately go and get their referral link before doing anything on the site. This does not work and it will lead to very early frustration!

Let's be honest! Vindale is very clear about how they will credit a referral. They WILL NOT credit just anybody who joins the site using your link. The person has to be genuinely interested in joining the community which means that these other requirements will also have to be met (for anyone to receive $5 for a referral):

1) The referral must complete their profile.
2) The referral must complete at least one survey or study.

For me, this makes sense. Vindale is paying you to refer people who can actually add something to their site, program and community and not for just deadheads who join the site for some type of incentive. This kind of behavior does nothing for a company’s bottom line.

Here's the company's tutorial that can help you learn and navigate around the homepage:

The gist of this post is simple: Learn the site, interact, share the site and make some money.
