As we have discussed in the previous thread a referral program is something that most people are interested in trying out.
Key takeaways from the previous thread discussion are:
Make sure that referral program does not affect community/ early backers in a bad way (Referral program is NOT a sales point but rather a “thank you” for spreading the word)
Give referral program owners club vibe.
MAKE SURE EARLY COMMUNITY MEMBERS AND BACKERS are not diluted by the program.
We will try the program out but we need to think through its logic and actual rewards a bit more
Our team has been thinking this week how we could make referral system work. Referral program starts with rewards. We were thinking what kind of reward can be given. In the previous thread we noticed that some people wanted to buy Eve products with rewards some wanted to have gift cards and others wanted cash back through PayPal.
To keep things we came up with an idea of Eve Credits (we will give them fancier name later:) ).
Each time your buddy buys Eve V you will get X amount of Eve credits to your account. Later you could use Eve Credits for:
- Future Eve products and accessories or even repairs
- Gift cards for Amazon, Steam, Xbox Gold subscriptions
- Maybe Paypal cashback (we are not sure whether it is fully legal and works accounting wise)
To keep it simple 1 credit will be worth 1 USD.
We think that Eve credits are optimal as they will provide enough flexibility for people to spend them
What do you think of Eve credits idea above?
Now we have some questions to you:
1.How do you feel about Eve Credits idea?
- I like it
- I dislike it
- I have abetter Idea
2.What would you like to be able to spend Eve Credits on?
- Eve products and services
- Gift cards (Amazon, etc)
- Paypal transfer (not sure whether it’s possible )
- Something else
3.As mentioned before 1 Eve Credit would be worth 1 USD. How many credits should you receive in your opinion per each device sold (guys say here what you think is fair. We will not increase our prices because of referral program so we will just take those referral bonuses from our originally planned sales prices. So tell what you think is fair )
4.How many people should you refer to get your V for free (basically refunded:) )
Looking forward to hearing your thought guys! And thank you for the great points you made in the previous thread. It helped us choosing the direction with referral program a lot.
