Can a pro give me some tips on where and how to get referrals?

I'd like to know myself...

Offers aren't granting me points for some reason.

same here. I am stuck with either 1 of 2 options now....

1: get referalls
2: find a different site.

I really dont want to find a different site, but if the point system doesnt get straightend out, or cant get any referals, I may not have much of a choice.....

You're lucky to have even got ONE reward.
I'm CDN so I don't have as many offers as everyone else.

On top of that, I don't seem to be getting credited for the offers that I do finish.

I'm Canadian too and i have got 67.43 points from referrals alone in the month of december and the end of november so ya if you have a bit of spare time on your hands referrals is the way to go all i did was make a web site like this " http://www.freewiipoints.piczo.com " explaing the site and how it works and my referral link is on there so all you need to do is get people to see it, my method was just to post on nintendo vids on youtube "want a free wii points code e-mailed to u? if so check this out..." something like that and ppeople will check it out you can advertise differently but thats how i did it :banana

*Sigh*

Even YOU have more points than I do and you're Canadian. :(

The problem is, I REALLY want the games listed in my sig, esp. Starfox 64, but just don't know where to turn for referrals!

I tried getref but I don't know how to even POST my referral. It's not very user-friendly.

CGA won't let my post threads in the Referral Central board.

But I have ONE thread over on one site so that MAY help but I doubt it.
I really need help for getting Pts... :(

You're CDN. What do you think of the offers we have? I did a TON of them but I'm not getting credited for them which only adds to my frustration.

Okay, let me know what you guys think.

It's simple, yes, I know but it's to the point.

i'm from Canada and i have 56 referrals.... and most of my offers are completed... and i have enough poiints for a wiipoints card now.... what everyone does to get referrals is to make a blog or website and just make a small tutorial telling the person how to get prizes and everything... i've recently made one and the number of my referrals went wayyy up....

You might want to include your link in the video description so people can just copy+paste

Interesting. But how do people find the site you make? Do you have to advertise the site somewhere?

This is what I did less than 2 weeks ago and so far have close to 30 referrals. Make a small tut on blogger, using the best domain you can think of (mine is like free-wii-points) then after you have typed it out put as many meta tags as you can, include words like Mario, Wii, Freebies, Virtual Console, Mario Brother, etc. Then make sure you list your blog as public so it shows up on search engines via your meta tags.

Then on any forums you are a member at (It may help more for me as im a admin/mod on popular forums with 80k+ members so a lot of people view my sig) put a link to your tutorial say "I get Wii points for free, click here to find out how" do this and wait awhile and before you know it your refs will start to roll in.

Another option is to create a simple video on Youtube (With you link pasted in the description so it can be copied and pasted) but I chose not to do this and I know how much videos like this annoy me on youtube.

If you have a higher post count on forums that you have it in your sig your more likely to get refs off it.

I tried GetRef and haven't had a lot of luck with it. I don't think I've dedicated as much time to it as others though, so it's probably my own fault. Hockeyhero is right about the blog idea though. I've seen hundreds of these things come up on Google and they seem to be getting hits.

I started one for a project I'm working on in the middle of December and it's been pretty successful so far. You can see it here: http://www.freexbox360elitetest.blogspot.com/.

Also, sorry for the cheap plug.

Thanks for the metatag advice. But I went into my blog's settings and I don't know what a metatag is. Can someone give me the code and I can just plug it into my blog?

I think I'll advertise it over on TSC - The Sonic Center - as I'm there a LOT and it's the only forum I'm a regular at because of what the site is about, seeing as I'm a huge Sonic fan.

I'll see but thanks for the advice. I'll change the descriptor now.

I am going to defenitely try this blog idea.

01-02-2008, 08:32 AM
i just did the blog thing and i cant wait for refs to start coming in:smile

knucklessonic8
01-02-2008, 11:30 AM
Good job, guys.

I still have yet to recieve a referral though. :(

Any other ideas?
I made the video. I posted over on TSC. What else could I do?
I signed up on GetRef yesterday but I have NO idea what to do/where to go to post my referral. Any other ideas?

skaterboi15
01-02-2008, 11:38 AM
im not sure either but i did make a blog and im also waiting for some to sign up under me i hope ppl do believe me

knucklessonic8
01-02-2008, 01:18 PM
I see you got two referrals! Great job!

Where'd you make your blog? I need ideas to advertise..
I mean, it's like I can make a thread over on GFAQS. XD

skaterboi15
01-02-2008, 01:19 PM

knucklessonic8
01-02-2008, 01:25 PM
Never heard of it... I'm signing up right now! :D

Also, we have the same number of posts (excluding this one). :P

edit:
Darn. Parental Controls blocking it. XD
Also, could you provide me a link to your Blog Post so I can see it? If I'm still blocked, could you copy+paste into a PM or post here. Whichever you prefer.

skaterboi15
01-02-2008, 01:29 PM
ok here is the link http://freegamehardwareancaccersories.blogspot.com/

knucklessonic8
01-02-2008, 01:55 PM
Can't view it. Still blocked for me.

But either way, the wording doesn't look right even if it wasn't blocked. You sure the typing's right?

skaterboi15
01-02-2008, 02:30 PM

knucklessonic8
01-02-2008, 02:36 PM
I made a thread on TSC.
I made a vid and uploaded it to Google Vid.
I posted it in my sigs in some places.

Still nothing. :(
I need more ideas I'm afraid.

skaterboi15
01-02-2008, 02:41 PM
try telling your friends about rewards1

knucklessonic8
01-02-2008, 02:54 PM
That... wouldn't be the best idea. XD
But it's a start. Thanks.

skaterboi15
01-02-2008, 02:55 PM
nno prob i got 1 reffarl from my friend he got me 1 point

knucklessonic8
01-02-2008, 03:03 PM
Heh. I guess every point counts.
That same basic truth applies to me even more since I'm CDN and, as such, don't have as many offers as everyone else.

skaterboi15
01-02-2008, 03:07 PM

Go to www.sureproxy.com and type in your site in the bar below, it will bypass the blockers.

Thanks for the commendation.
I didn't even think it was that great...
Still no referrals, I'm afraid. :(

How is it that you come to creating referal sites. Do you use myspace, or youtube or something of the sort?

DarkRider23
01-05-2008, 10:39 PM
