Getting Referrals

Tips and Tricks for getting the referrals you need

One of the things that dissuades a lot of people from trying to earn free gift cards is getting those referrals to complete the requirements. Fortunately there are several ways to collect the referrals required to receive your free gift cards.

Getting referrals from people you know

Chances are, you have a lot of friends and family who would like free gift cards just as much as you do. A good place to start is your contact list in your email. 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. Remember, don't spam your link to people you don't know, and be aware that only one account per household is allowed.

Personal websites & blogs

If you have a blog, or a personal website, include your referral link with some information about the site to encourage people to sign up. This is probably the most important thing you want to do if you want to make money online with 50DollarGiftCards, or any other affiliate program. A personal website with a custom domain name adds legitimacy to your offer, while being a protective bridge for whatever links you are promoting, keeping them from getting deleted. You should promote one or all of your offers under your personal website rather than your direct affiliate links. 

Traffic exchanges

Basically, you help other websites by visiting them and in turn, they will visit yours. A good traffic exchange platform can have tens of thousands of active members who can all visit your website and increase the popularity and rankings of your website in a matter of days. Check out the traffic exchanges below for some great places to get traffic to your website or referral links.

Other effective offline marketing methods include door hangers, car magnets, brochures, business cards and of course flyers.
