Re: Lowering bill

Loyalty $3, Auto Pay $2, Refer-a-Friend $3 on a $40 plan = $32/month

Re: Challenges signing ppl up ??!

@gpixel4 - thanks for sharing your experience!

PM I think is not as well known as a prepaid phone provider, running on the TELUS network.

Another point I just thought of - I switched a family member from Rogers prepaid to PM a while back, and when they shared how much they pay a month to friends, they were in disbelief...almost thinking that this was too good to be true 😉

Re: Lowering bill

I switched from the $40 to the $30 plan - 

purchased 1 Gb of Data for top up purposes ... and it’s cheaper just a thought

Re: Lowering bill

@Savebig2 If you can make the add-on last more than 30 days, lowering to $30 plan is good. If you alway have to buy the add-on, you're better on the $40 plan.

@Savebig2 

When trying to make referrals most importantly you have to know how to manage your or others accounts as @Jb456  and @gpixel4  have mentioned so that if any issues come up you can quickly identify the problem, troubleshoot and fix it or recommend contacting the moderators.

 

Some referrals you will have to manage the account for them to varying degrees which can include contacting the moderators on their behalf. I have a couple of them that both have autopay with one who buys a voucher and adds it via 611 and the other relies on autopay but wants to now learn how to buy and add a voucher. (He just got his first loyalty reward.) Neither of them have had any problems with their service. But i will have to contact the  moderators for them if ever needed as thats likeky beyond their current threshold.

 

If you can be trustworthy and manage accounts as needed then successful referrals are possible. Now you just need to find your referrals......

 

Identify your target audience. I have referred none if my immediate family as they are happy with their current plans with telus, koodo and eastlink with their employers paying/subsidizing their bills or longtime loyalty and device upgrades keeping them happy.

 

But my neice a third year university student has about 6 months left on her contract so i will be sending feelers out her way and a few other friends and family are about 8 months out from finishing their contracts and they all need to save money because they actually have to pay a crazy bill each month.

 

When i meet someone new or run into an old friend and they ask what ive been doing i tell them about helping in the community. This gives me chance to upsell pm while explaining  how the online model works and who they are with, how much they pay and (if) when their contract ends. Then ill ask for their emaiĺ ( if i know them) to register it for email promos.

 

Much of your target audience will have the same goal...to save money on their phone bill for whatever reason. They could just be cheap (make sure they can manage their own account.) Or the thrifty bargain hunter type, the miffed "I hate the big three" ones, students, seniors, single moms, or dads, new canadians, working foreigners and just about anyone without a crecit card or for that matter a fixed address ....

 

Get yourself a niche and you will get referrals....i myself am well stocked with kelloggs $5 gift cards that can be used/ added for the autopay reward for referrals i dont know very well or at all.....$13 accounts pay you the same reward as $48 accounts,

 

I've posted too many times that i dont pay for my bills (2- $10/$15) the latest post on it can be found  here

Re: Challenges signing ppl up ??!

I recently signed my mother-in-law up with PM. 
she liked the idea of getting cheap phone plans, but signing up process was a pain as she can’t see well and putting the information in phone screen was a challenge! I can see people giving up as they choose to sign up in person with other providers despite paying much more fees!

Next time have your referrals activate at a London Drugs, Walmart, etc.

The process can be done on a desktop computer or laptop with a larger screen.

 

Indeed, filling in forms on mobile phones IS a bit challenging, even for this middle-aged person.

Re: Challenges signing ppl up ??!

I'm always surprised that people would conduct this kind of business on a phone.

I'm also surprised that there's little to no recognition of mobile browsers around here.

@z10user4  Why surprised? I've done 3 activations with my phone. Easy peasy.
