With the holidays fast approaching people are looking for extra ways to make money from home to fund their holiday shopping. Today’s series spotlights becoming an online referral agent. Up until a few days ago, I didn’t know there was such a thing!
What is an Online Referral Agent and What the Heck Do They Do!?
What Is It: An online referral agent is someone who gets paid to refer customers or clients to a business or individual who offers what those customers or clients need.
How Does It Work: Online referral agents refer people to established companies looking to expand their customer base. These companies rely on a very old-school, yet extremely effective, marketing method: word of mouth; however, it’s with a twist. The referral is done online. Imagine all of the times you told a friend about a great movie and that friend ended up going to that movie. She went because you referred her. Now imagine getting paid for that referral and for your friend following through. Referral programs can pay as little as $1 and as much as $100, depending on the program and your work ethic.
The primary responsibility of an 0nline referral agent is to spread the word and get as many people as possible to look at and participate in a company’s offer. For example, someone referred me to a free online offer that allowed me to check on and monitor my credit report and that person made $20 from referring me.
Can you really make money as online referral agent?
Just like with my reviews on Avon and Mary Kay, I’ve done my due diligence to make sure that this is a legitimate way to make extra money from home, part-time or full-time. So, after scouring the Internet I found a program that I feel comfortable recommending: Instant Payday Network. Here are my three reasons why.
1. It must be FREE. Many people looking to make extra money from home are not prepared to make a large initial investment.
2. It must be FAST. People who want to make money from home would like to make that money quickly.
3. It must be FOOL-PROOF. Complicated instructions, lack of training, etc. are turn-offs when it comes to making money online. People want simplicity. Any good program will have a good amount of training to help newbies succeed.
Instant Payday Network
Jeff Buchanan created Instant Payday Network which encompasses two free programs: My Cash Freebies and Double My Cash Freebies. While I don’t know him personally, I met Jeff in San Diego at The Empower Network “Fight the Forces of Evil” event back in September. He has done an amazing job of putting together a program that meets my three F’s: free, fast, and fool-proof! Briefly, there’s no money involved to become an online referral agent through Jeff’s program–it’s free. As soon as you start referring people to the offers and they go through the process, money is deposited into your PayPal account the same day–it’s fast. Finally, there are training videos, scripts, and pre-written ads so all you have to do is cut and paste–it’s fool-proof!
Hands down, my recommendation for a really cool way to make extra money from home this holiday season is to become an online referral agent! In fact, tell Jeff I sent you!
