The new Pjio.com referral program launches. Basically it’s a new service that rewards members for promoting and developing the site community. The program is different to many other referral programs by rewarding members over the lifetime value of an ever-expanding community. Members are rewarded with status points, known as Karma, Credits and a share advertising revenues where applicable. The rewards are earned by the member as and when the referred member participates in community activity or earns advertising revenues from a uploaded game.
Besides offering lifetime rewards, until the end of 2007 referrers qualify for 50% share of the referred members earnings. So, if a referred game developer earns $500 in ad-share, the referrer earns $250. This comes from Pjio’s cut (so both developers and referrers win in this deal). The system is 2-tier, so basically when you refer a friend, and they refer their friends – your network grows.
As you can see, I’ve chosen to experiment with the system. As they are just launching the program, I cannot personally recommend or tell how good it will be – but I know for sure that early adopters (like me) will get an advantage compared to those who get later in the system. The 50% share won’t be available for so many months after all, and the 2-tier system might be better for those who get in early.
We’ll see how it goes, here’s my referral link – check it out in case you are interested: Pjio.com.
