It’s okay to offer free rewards. Many companies offer eBooks, whitepapers, or other free items in
exchange for social sharing. This is an integral part of establishing a strong traffic funnel using
a technique called inbound marketing.
Don’t discount the value of a cash or coupon reward. Brands like Newcastle Brown Ale have incentivized massive social growth with a $1 reward.
Spend some time thinking about your reward. Target it to your audience. If your product is geared towards neophytes, make your reward something that neophytes need or want, like introductory material, not something that appeals to veterans, like a technical whitepaper.
For the best results, offer promotional materials that your referrers can use, like banner ads, pre-written emails, and videos that can be shared on social media.
