I sometimes feel like I have a good amount of friends, when you take in consideration my friends online and offline. But, I only have like 2 or 3 people that will become a referral for me on the sites I do online. I read about people having 1500 people signed up under them. How on EARTH does someone get THAT many people? How do YOU get your referrals?

In order for me to get 1500 referrals, I have to explain everything clearly to my friends and the important thing that I stress is that its free to sign up and they are money benefits in it for that. Making it clear and concise to my friends is how I get them to sign up. A few of my friends, I have to plead and beg them and sometimes I just call them and demand that they sign up. Sometimes you have to do what you have to do to get what you want and my friends are very funny. Hope this helped.

There are people who are so called super affiliates. They have so many contacts who always want to be their referrals, these referrals have their contacts as well so you get a lot of multiple-tier referrals. I'll add you as friend and give you some more tips, a few of which I can't publish here. :)

Getting refers is real difficult and getting active refer is very very difficult. I have got many refers but no one returned back. People do lot of marketing of their link in order to get more and more refers. If you have more refers you have more opportunity to make money ... so try hard and populate your link... tell the benefits of mylot. All the best .

hello smartbrain69 I agree it's a difficult process, but I think that if you find the right place, the refferals you get will stay pretty active... it's just HOW to find them that's the hard part LOL Happy MyLotting, Fran429

Well I think my personal best way to get referrals it to go into a forum community and establish myself among the members by posting around for a few months, and then bringing up the websites n' whatnot. The best kind of forum to go to is a place where people might be looking for money but aren't very familiar with programs like survey places, writing sites, and other sites that actually pay them to do various activities. Afterall, if you're in a community of let's say 400 active members and not one of them knew that places like this existed that's 400 potential referrals. There are a LOT of places like this out there,

I wold like to know the answer to that one myself. I am having a hard time getting them myself, but I am thankful for the ones I do have, even though it isn't all that many. I have about 6 or so total for all the sites I am doing. I just refuse to beg anyone to be my referral. They will join under me if they are interested. I just wish it were easy to get them, but I am struggling too. I have 4 for trekpay, 1 for palmbux, 1 fro earn easy cash, and 1 for sassy clix. I am with a lot more sites than that, and that is all I have, but it is better than nothing, so I will take what I can get. I really wish I knew the answer as to how to get them. Most aren't interested in what I am doing I suppose, and that is ok, as not everyone likes the same things. I am jst thankful everyday for the ones I do have, and I hope they will work for me to help me. Good luck to you and happy mylotting.

Hello fran, To be honest, I have not got even a single referral here.I tried telling a few of my friends about it but they laughed it off, saying that the money is too slow here and they do not have that much patience. Probably they want to get something like $100 for every posting here. Then, I stopped trying and am happy with whatever little money I make here and interacting with friends.

Hello friend. Let me say you you're lucky. Usually my friends don't care at all about became my referrals ;) The few referrals I got comes from a site of mine where I'm promoting my reflinks, and from a site called getref. Anyway, if you will find the secret about getting 1000+ referral, wish you will share with us. I really need many referrals ;) Wish you a big success in this! See you.

hello pierone, Trust me, I'm not that lucky! I have 1 referral for some sites and NONE for others... When I find the big secret, I'll definately let you in! I'll let EVERYONE in! I've heard of getref but when I went to the website, there was nothing that told me anything and I wont sign up unless I can browse around the site some and learn more about it. Happy MyLotting & Good luck! Fran429

When it comes to making money, try not to depend too much on friends. I have around 4 referals and they are all people I got to know online through my blog. People that I know personally, after I've wasted so much effort convincing them to join myLot, they ended up going behind my back and join as a solo and not under my reference. So, work hard and make use of the contacts you gain online. :)
