I've been investing a lot of time lately on really going the distance with product rollouts and got some nice results because of it. But now it's time for the next step: going viral...
I want to give away a free report soon but with a twist: in order to get it, the people that click on the "get the free report" link will first have to go to a tell-a-friend page.
And for that I need a tell-a-friend script, duhh :p Here's what I'm looking for:
- Some kind of table/form script that allows people to fill in multiple names with ease but also allows HTML on the same page it is put (so I can do my little script promotion or so to speak)
- Have an expanding reward system: 1 friend means going to thank you page X with link to 1 reward, 2 friends means page Y with links to 2 rewards and 3 friends means page Z with links to 3 rewards. So 3 different thank you pages (or better).
- I should be able to add images, compelling text and so forth on the same page the script will be on... so people can see what kind of rewards they'll get.
Here's the dilemma...
Hiring a coder to create a script like this OR getting that out of the box solution? I heard hiring a coder for this will cost me around 100 bucks... which is cheaper, plus gives me more control of the script I'll end up with.
While the only out of the box solution I found that can actually do this costs 197 bucks... which is more expensive, BUT it also allows people to login on their email accounts (Gmail for example), pull all their contacts from their account and refer them all...
What to do? I dont have experience with tell a friend scripts so this sounds like 50-50 (equal quality) and thus guesswork, any insights?
