There are many ways of getting referrals. What methods do you use and how do you avoid making it spam?

I got 2 referrals from a link on my blog and I have now referred my other half. The only other person I would refer is my best friend. I might talk to people about the site and refer them if they ask me but for now I'll see if anyone else joins through my blog!

Well done! Be careful of spamming, though! I have to say I got a violation from Yahoo Answers through mentioning MyLot on there!

Well, I've got a link to it on my blast on my blog, and I've now put it as my signature on my emails, I don't think it's spamming to put it there, I'm not telling anyone to do it, I've just put the linky thingy there.

No, I don't think it's spamming to put a link on emails. Yahoo see fit to put adverts on our emails, so I don't see anything against us doing the same!

I don't make any referrals. The people I know well enough to refer are all mature, working adults who wouldn't be interested in spending their free time doing this. Many of them are teachers, and teachers are the most overworked individuals on the planet for the salary they receive.

I agree that a lot of people don't find this kind of discussion forum to their taste and a lot of people don't have the time for it.

For me the best way to build referrals for any program is to find forums that are relevant to the theme or topic and start communicating. You also make sure you have the signature set for the program you are promoting.

If you find an answer to this one, please let me know. I would love to have some referrals but so far just asking friends isnt working
