On the rewards page of course it says we get credit for people who click our links before signup, etc. But what exactly is the “credit”? I just posted notes to my old host forum and in my blog to tell people how happy we are with DH, and just for the heck of it I put a link to DH with our account number as the referral code. But what do we get for it?
I was going to create a custom promotional code but then saw it offered discounts to new accounts. I’m not motivated to give other people discounts, though I’m happy to refer them to DH. The discounts come out of our own $97 credit for the referral. I’m not greedy or anything but if I give referrals I don’t want 10 new DH customers to drain my credit down to nothing. I think more than a few people/companies might rehost to DH because of my referrals, so I’m also not inclined to go for a one-time $97 credit.
So what am I missing that may or may not be in the rewards page? What do we get when some number of new customers sign up? A thank you and a promise that new code won’t break our site next time?
