How do you get your referrals?

I'm curious to know how others are getting referrals for others to signup Smiley Happy

 

Share with the group and we can grow this company to the point where they have more resources to spend on some of the issues i see in the community board Smiley Happy

Probably referring family and friends.

Re: How do you get your referrals?

Even if it's self serving, it benefits everyone to help everyone refer more people, everyone benefits from referals in one way or another - Public gets more $, the refered gets to save $ and gets $, the referer gets $, so I'm in favour of discussing and sharing with everyone any ideas of how to refer more.

 

I tell everyone I know, Family/friends/strangers, to switch to Public - those who don't know how or are just to lazy, I will do the entire process for them, setting up the sim card online etc. For those who don't talk english, the main barrier to switching is the whole do-it-yourself-online process since not only can't they read english many are used to it all being done for them, so doing everything for them helps convince them to switch.

 

Another barrier is fear of losing their number, so many have to be hand held through the process and assured that porting works fine and they won't lose their number.

 

For Family/friends in different cities, I tell them to buy the sim and voucher and send me a photo of it with all their info so I can set it up online for them, then when it's all done they just switch sims when their old sim stops working.

 

So far I never had to contact the Moderator Team for anyone I've refered, probably because I already made mistakes with my own accounts before and had to contact the Moderators, so now I'm more experienced with the whole set up process enough to do it without any issues for others thus far.

 

So, I think the best way to get referals is to do the same job of a customer service rep we all see at all the other cell phone retail stores - which means doing eveything for others that want to join Public if they won't do it for themselves.

You have taken a few pages from my playbook.  This is what I have done and continue to do.  The way OP discussed referrals, it is purely self serving.

Re: How do you get your referrals?

I signed up to PM in April and at that time I did a full overhaul of my expenses.  I reduced internet costs, cancelled the land line and switched to VOIP, cancelled paying for parking at work and started cycling significantly more.  My coworkers started asking me about this, especially since they noticed that I wasn't paying for parking.  I have gotten only a couple referrals this way it is still something!

Cutting expenses is always worthwhile!

I don't think this is self-serving or against the "purpose" of the community forums. The Lounge is for off-topic discussions.

Why not it's posted in the lounge?

At the end of the day everyone is a winner when referrals are used.

 

Public mobile get more clients

The people who use the code get a one time discount (essentially a free SIM)

We get a few dollars taken off our plan ☺️
