people signing up with no referral
« on: September 17, 2010, 07:19:03 pm »
Does anyone know what happens to people who sign up without a referral?  Are they divided up somehow?  Other sites I've used have divided them up between "premium" members or some other kind of distinction.  If FC doesn't do that, then they should!  I would be willing to pay a few extra bucks a month to get people who signed up with no referral.

I agree.

Or having a contest to win referrals would be nice.

We choose not to have paid levels of membership, and we also choose not to divvy up unreferred users.  The reason is that someone always loses - either you, or FC.  I'll explain: lets say you had to pay $20/mo for a "premium" membership.  Each month you would either get enough referrals to make back the $20, in which case FC loses money; or you wouldn't get enough bonuses to break even, in which case YOU lose money.  Then, we get the added headache of collecting payments and the inevitable fraud that comes from it.

I don't like the idea of membership. If there was a way at least that fusion cash wouldn't loose money by "divvying" up unreferred users, that would be so nice.

Being able to win referrals in contests or as bonuses would be very nice...Paying or renting is a BIG hassle causing more headaches then anything.

The occasional free referral promo would be nice. Perhaps a monthly contest of some sort.

I agree with you.

And if you think about it, these people who joined unreferred could have been referred by members. And if they were, FC would have to credit the members for that. I don't really see any potential loss for FC if it pays at least half the regular amount some way or another ( promotion contest or just random members).

I agree I don't think there should be a membership fee.  This would cause added expense to FC.  But, I don't see how letting members win the random referrals in contest would add any fees.  If they had been a referred member, you would be paying but since they are not FC is just saving money.  A random referral contest would cause some great excitement around FC.

I have been attempting to get referrals without success.  I have business cards printed that I hand out but I don't have any luck.  How are you guys doing it?  I have the banners on the bottome of emails that don't generate anything either.

What's the recipe for success with referrals?
