The new "referral engine" -- friendvouch.com -- is unprecedented in scope, as it can connect any consumer, offline or online, with any friendvouch brand offer. Moreover, it offers numerous safeguards against improper use by either consumers or advertisers, further enhancing its usefulness to both parties.
PerfSpot, one of the world's fastest-growing social networks with over 24 million members, will detail friendvouch next week during the ad:tech, an interactive advertising and technology conference in New York City.
"friendvouch is a classic win-win-win proposition," said Hart Cunningham, CEO of PerfSpot.com. "Consumers online and offline are inherently looking for deals that will improve their lives: now, they have friends and family looking out for them. Influential individuals quite willingly make recommendations everyday: now, they can get rewarded for it. And finally, advertisers and brands can now tap the networks of those influencers, essentially creating the most powerful and legitimate sales team ever."
friendvouch for Consumers
At friendvouch, consumers can participate in two ways:
-- Influential "referrers" are PerfSpot members who screen offers and match them with friends, family and other acquaintances
-- "Customers" are the trusted contacts of the referrers
Participating as an influencer is simple:
-- Create an influencer account at friendvouch.com and browse product and service listings that might be of interest to those you know, online or offline
-- Contact your friends and get their permission to make the connection, letting them know that their information is safe and that they'll be contacted by friendvouch to verify their interest
-- Submit their contact information, monitor your account, and track your payment details at friendvouch
For influencers with extensive MySpace, Facebook or PerfSpot "friends lists," friendvouch is even more powerful. Simply access the friendvouch widget factory, grab the code for the offers you'd like to promote to your network, and drop the offers into your profile or blog.
Friendvouch will also allow fellow influencers to exchange opinions and feedback on advertiser offers, essentially comparing notes to further enhance their efforts.
For "customers" -- the consumers who agree to receive your special offers -- friendvouch is even easier. The only requirements are a genuine interest in the offer, and an email address or phone number. There is nothing to download, install, or register for, and their interest and information will be verified by PerfSpot before being shared with the advertiser.
