Today I saw this company where its online business model was mainly to have people try out free offers from various vendors while doing surveys. Of course, the business gets like say $2 to $10 for every survey or offer that people try as a direct result of their referral. Their incentive to get people to do so is to reward them with these points of sort that can be used as a currency for their in-house products. Example, doing one survey can net them 100 points which can be used to play a game or 1000 to buy a cheap item.
It seems like it is doing well for them too. Compare that in contrast where if you went with the more traditional route where you say charged people $5 for like 1000 points or something like that and you probably wonâ€™t get as large of a response unless your product is truly in demand. There is a drawback to this though as many of these affiliate companies donâ€™t allow you to offer incentives in order to get people to try the products.
For example, if one vendor offered me $5 to refer someone to try its product I canâ€™t say that I will offer you $1 to do so. There are many that donâ€™t mind though as long as it is qualified leads. Different ways of creating a business.
