Will be updating this guide on the weekend, please be patient as this old guide will be re-vamped over time.

Q: SoleSoldier, I'm still confused on referring and need help.
A: No problem, just send me a PM and I'll get back to you in 24 hours.
http://forum.prizerebel.com/index.php?action=profile;u=367

Q: You screwed me over man, your offline and I need some help right now!
A: Just head on over to the FAQ, it'll probably solve the remainder of your problems. Or if your that desperate, try messaging a moderator to help you out fi they have the time. DON'T spam them with messages, just send 1 well written, detailed message that involves your issue and you'll be good to go.
http://www.prizerebel.com/faq.php

Q: SoleSoldier, I'm getting very discouraged at the fact that I'm getting very little referrals who don't even stay active for a day. What do I do?
A: Keep trying and improve your referral strategy. There is always room for improvement. Try posting your referral tactic like a blog for example, in the referral section of PrizeRebel and have the people proof-read it and see how you can improve.

List of Moderators:

Glace http://forum.prizerebel.com/index.php?action=profile;u=2
Raeken http://forum.prizerebel.com/index.php?action=profile;u=6

Tactic 1:

This is a small little tactic, but can still work. Make your very own ebook. Make it based on something like ----- How I got my ps3 in less than a week------ Talk all about prizerebel and how it works, slip in your referral link at the top, and the bottom of the ebook. Now sense you have an ebook, you can list it to the large amount of ebook sites. That's it.

Tactic 2:

When you finnaly order an item off ebay and leave feedback say something like- Thanks, fast shipping, love the (item you ordered), I got a (example: points card) for it for free from prizerebel. (Your referral link) If someone wants to order an item from that person they will look at the feedback, your referral link will be in their feedback. And them thinking they can get free stuff so they will sign up. Can be a good tactic.

Tactic 3:

When your on ebay, you can leave reviews on certian items. Say something like ---- Im so glad I got this, it just came today, I custom ordered it off prizerebel, so I got it for free! This thing is awesome!---

Tactic 4:

http://talk-gaming.com/

This is another forums. Post a thread saying "giving out xbox live 48 hour codes"
In the body of the thread write pm me and you might get it ill have to choose who gets them. I have 4 left. Then you will get a load of messages. Respond to each of them saying, sorry im out of them. But I got them for free from prizerebel. You just complete a few surveys. Heres the link (YOUR MASKED REF LINK)

Tactic 5:

http://www.ourfavoritewebsites.com/

This is a website where people submit their favorite and best videos,pictures,and websites. Simply submit your referral link and have the title be something like -----How I get my free prizes daily----

Tactic 6:

Itunes Reviews

Go to itunes store and look at the popular list or the top 10 music list. Find the number one downloaded song. Write a review for it saying something like ------ This is a pretty good song, but I bailed on buying itunes gift cards, Now i get them for free from prizerebel. Oh and if your interested heres the link to prizerebel. (Your masked referral link) ------ You can do this think for any type of review, and its a very good tactic for referrals.

Tactic 7: (This is a tactic similar to zorks old guide, but isnt really the same)

Websites for teachers - http://www.sitesforteachers.com/

When you are at sites for teachers you can add your own site. Add prizerebel. Say ---- A fun assignment, let your students and their parents complete a few surveys and they can win a prize!---- teachers will see that and kids that are online will see that. They will definitly be interested. Have the link to the site be your referral link (masked) Remask your referral link to be something like tinyurl.com/prizeforstudents or something like that. It might not get a ton of referrals but can bring in a few.Continued:

Tactic 8:


Create an account on www.newyorkjobs.com

You will then create a "job".

Here is an example. I suggest you do not use the same example I am giving you,because you will not get refs then.

Job title- Front End Office Assistant Need

Michael and Michael
Front End Office Assistant Need
Post Date: Mar 28, 2009 Type: Part time
Start Date: Salary: $12-$15hr
Location: New York-New York City - Manhattan Job Reference:
Skills:


Job Description:
own many businesses within the new york city limits. Upper and Lower NYC/ Manhatten areas and we are expanding our offices at a rapid rate. I am looking for a confident, orgainzed, office assistant asap!

Job requires:

* Computer Skills (Microsoft Office, Word, Excel)
* Must Be Able To Multi-task well
* Exceptional Organizational Skills

Pay Rate:
* $12-$15hr

Please email application with title "NYC Job 4123-2" in the subject line

Mike

Email: xxxxxxxxxxxxx


You will not start getting e-mails INSTANTLY, so give it a day or two. Once they e-mail you back, I usually respond with this statement:

I have gone over your application, but I need to sort out the real from the fake. Many people tend to have bots online. I have provided a link (my sons link):
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

To sort this out, I need you go to the link above, sign up, confirm email and phone number. Once that is done, please contact me back.

Tactic 9:

The site is www.vinefire.com. You simply add a link and you get hits on it. The link appears to remain on the first page for about 3 minutes. You can't keep adding the same link over and over, so what I do is mask the ref link over and over. This will you get you fast referrals if you keep adding your link. Good luck! This tactic works best for Cashle/***.

Tactic 10:

http://www.joystiq.com
This is a gaming blog. They update nearly every hour, and so many people comment. Comment the blog ( Make it look real), and near the end bring in your site and add your MASKED ref link.

This works, and has gotten me several refs. BUT MAKE IT LOOK REAL. Don't just spam your ref link everywhere. Take the time and comment the blog, and then go into your ref link.

Tactic 11:

Post in LIVE chat rooms. http://www.xat.com. This site has MANY chat rooms. Find the most popular one, start a conversation, for example, "Who here likes video games", talk with that person, until you get to the point and say "These games are overpriced, you should try ______.com"

Another site you can try is ICQ.com (No you do not need to download the messenger. Somewhere on the site they have chat rooms. They also say how many people are in each of them. They have a room called "Teens". You will attract the most attention here, because these are kids between 13- 19.. These kids LOVE video games!

mIRC. (you have to download it and know how to set it up.) Don't know if you guys have ever heard of mIRC but its an Internet Relay Chat. Same thing as a chat room but its not using the browser and you could do so much more with it. If you go to google, you can search "Top IRC servers". You'll find servers with 2k people in them. DO NOT SPAM, but start a conversation with people ( Or you will get banned).

Tactic 12:

If you play World of Warcraft, you can go into their Off topic section in the forums, and you can make a topic on how to get FREE WoW gametime. You will not get banned either, because I've tried this when I USED to play WoW. But remember, you need to have access to the game ( $15 a month) to have access to the forums.

The above tactic works for other MMO games as well. You can go onto several forums for several diff games, and try this tactic. DO NOT SPAM THOUGH, or you will be asking yourself for a ban. This tactic GARUNTEES you referrals. Go to www.mmorpg.com, find the top mmo games, and their forums.

Tactic 13:

Forum signatures!

http://www.big-boards.com

This site has a list of the worlds biggest forums. Try joining some and becoming a trustworthy member. Add a signature, saying " I got FREE Xbox 360 games from _______". Don't go spamming these boards, because i can guarantee you an instant ban.

Tactic 14:

E-Mail Auto Responses

If you use hotmail, yahoo, or gmail, you can set auto responses. Whenever someone messages you, it will auto response. Its called a "vacation response". Set the response as your referral link and explain it. If you use emailing heavily, this is a really good tactic.

Tactic 15:

RedFlagDeals
Cheapassgamer
(there was another site but I don't remember)

These are sites in which people post the best deals on video games. Your best bet is to find an awesome deal on Redflagdeals and try to incorporate your ref link within the post. Cheapassgamer also has a ref section, where you can make ONE topic on your ref link. (Think you have to be a member for 30 days to post in that section). Both these sites are good, and have gotten me several referrals in the past.

Go to http://www.commonsensemedia.org/ and sign up. Once you register go to Find Reviews, then Movies, or Games. Find a popular movie, and post a review. Put something like you can get this for free at "ref link here". Pretty simple and shouldn't take much time.
----

Go to http://www.gamerankings.com/ and sign up and post a review. Similar to the first tactic.

----

Go to ****ung.net, you can buy advertisement for your website pretty cheap. If you don't want to do that, take a picture with your ref link/website and submit it to them, random people will see it and sign up.

----

Go to fmylife.com and think of a funny story that people will like. at the end put your ref link. but not all FML's are submitted so leave comments instead. (moderately though). Post something like, I know how to make your day better, go to "ref link/website".

----

Go to http://www.answerbag.com/c_view/532, sign up. Once done, post a question and put your ref link. It’s similar to yahoo answers, but specifically for cars. So you can answer questions, and maybe once you solve their problem say you can go here “ref link” if you still need car wax. Stuff like that, pretty simple.

----

Go to http://forums.paintball.com/ and sign up. This is a site only for paintball stuff, so don’t post about Xbox’s and ****. Once signed up, talk about paintball’s and such, so that you become somewhat trusted. Then tell people “you can get free paintball gear (guns, paint LOL, grenades) at ref link/website”.

----
Go to http://discussions.apple.com/index.jspa and sign up. Once you register, post around saying something like you can get free iPod touch cleaners here “ref link”. Make sure to make it related to the topic though. If it says where can I get cheap headphones, don’t say go here for a free iPod touch. Take the time to read the post. Another good place is http://forums.macrumors.com/ same as the above forum, sign up, etc.

----

Go to http://www.photoshopforums.com/ and sign up. Once you register, try and find posts/threads about where you can get Photoshop for free legally or cheap. Tell them about PR or whatever and say that you can get it here “ref link” for free, and it is 100% legal. Similar to tactic 7.

-----

Go to http://cellphoneforums.net/index.php and sign up. Find threads about where can I get a phone free or really cheap. Tell them about PR or whatever you use and say you can get this phone free at “ref link”, yes it is 100% legal. Similar to Tactics 7 & 8.
-----

GH:World Tour. Make a song, and title it with your ref link/website. Easy to setup.

-----

Halo 3. Make a map and in the description put your ref link/website. If it gets downloaded a lot this can get some good refs.

-----

Referral System # 1
Make a list of people / businesses that sell complimentary products and services to your own product or service. If you sell athletic shoes your list might include health clubs, running clubs, basketball teams, or podiatrists. Now create a referral program that pays referral fees for people that are sent to you by your referral partners.

To make this system more effective, give your referral partners customized coupons, tickets, or cards that the referral brings with them to your business so that you can correctly track each referral source.

Referral System # 2
Approach charities in your local area to get a list of donors that already give to the charity. The United Way is a good place to start. Most United Way donors make advanced pledges or set goals to give a specified amount to the United Way.

Now approach the executive sponsor of the United Way donation drive and make a proposal. Propose that for every referral that is sent from their organization to your business, you will take a percentage of your sale and donate it to the United Way (or whatever charity they are affiliated with) in their name.

Referral System # 3
Local churches are always looking for innovative ways to raise money to sustain the programs they offer to their members. Most churches would be enthusiastic about the opportunity to receive a donation from you or your business.

Simply call up the ecclesiastical leader and ask if you can meet with him/her to talk about a potential fundraising activity. Propose that for every referral they send your way, you will donate a percentage of the sales to the church. In return, the church should agree to promote your business. This same referral tactic can be done with the booster clubs of local sports teams, Boy Scout troops and other organizations looking to raise money.

Referral System # 4
Most everyone has a barber or hairstylist they use on a frequent basis, especially if you have children. I don’t know about you, but my barber always engages me in conversation during my haircut. And most barbers and hairstylists are very happy when you give them a $2 - $3 tip. Do you see where I’m going with this?

Why not approach the local barbers and hairstylists and offer them $1 for every referral card they pass out to their customers. You might even motivate them to talk up your business by promising them a percentage of each sale that results from their referral.

Referral System # 5
The last referral system will not only bring you referrals, but will also create a lot of goodwill. I learned this tactic, strangely enough, by Princess Diana and a local real estate agent. When Princess Diana died a close associate of hers was interviewed and revealed that Diana always carried a set of “royal” thank you notes.

Every time she met with someone she would remember their names and as soon as she got in her car she would write a short thank you note to them. The people cherished the thank you notes they received from the Princess. After hearing that, I started to carry around my own box of thank you notes.

But here’s what really will make this referral tactic take off. Not long ago I received an email from a subscriber to my Marketing Best Practices Newsletter that had this phrase under the man’s signature:

You see, its not enough to send a thank you note. People need to know that you want and appreciate their referrals. The phrase, in essence, answers the question, “What can you do for me in return for this nice thank you card?” Immediately, I had this phrase printed on the bottom of my thank you notes and my referrals took off.
