Default Motivating A Friend Of Friend Referral

I'm trying to give people $1 off their next purchase when they refer a friend who buys something. Not sure if $1 is sufficient incentive and worry about tracking. But my mail list is stuck in the 80's and I swore I'd get it to 500 by month's end.

My products are mostly in the $10-20 range, so I'm not sure how much more incentive I could give...or whether I should just send a free gift for a referral and not base it on whether the person buys.

Any ideas for how to motivate fof as a list builder?

I think if your product costs 10 dollars, 1 dollar is a good discount for the next purchase.

I'm trying it today. We shall see how it goes, but I added it to today's email campaign.

I think anyone, especially nowadays, is willing to do anything for a buck. Plus, I agree that a low price like $10 would benefit from a $1 discount. It's worth a shot.

Agreed. 10% discount is definitely enough incentive to motivate them.
