GM Wishlist: Adjustable Promo codes in addition to referral links
I think it would be great if Goldmoney could implement a promo code system for referrals, in addition to the current referral links.
It could even be implemented in a cost neutral way for Goldmoney, if the promo code bonus for the new customer comes out of the referrer's normal referral bonus. It could be a voluntary option for referrers, where they are given the opportunity to create their own unique promo code, and specify what percentage (if any) of their referral bonus they want to give to anyone that uses their promo code on sign-up, or on their first deposit.
So for example, here is what my referral bonus looks like right now (since I haven't had any successful referrals yet):
If I get a $7.98 bonus on the first deposit of each referral I make, I'd be more than happy to offer $5 of that back to the person that makes that deposit.
Currently, with only having referral links as options, we face some big obstacles:
1)People often don't sign up on their first visit, so even if we get someone to follow our link to Goldmoney for the first time, they may go back later on a different device and go directly to Goldmoney.com without using the referral link. A promo code could be entered at signup even without having to follow a referral link.
2)It is difficult and awkward to try to have someone write down or remember a referral link during an in-person conversation. Giving them an easy to remember promo code would be much better (as is often done in radio advertisements)
3)People don't have any incentive to use a referral link as opposed to just going to the site directly. A promo code, with a bonus offer attached would help.
After having a good conversation about Goldmoney with a friend, how great it would be if you could say something like:
"If you use my promo code JOHNDOE123, you'll get a $5 bonus on your first gold deposit."
