Many different-sized banners are available at CashCrate to help you refer customers and make some extra money. The Promotion Center has all of the details, including tips on how to get referrals.
Referrals can add up to some quick money from CashCrate. For every new member you refer to CashCrate, you earn 20% of what they make, and 10% of what their referrals make. You get a $3 bonus when your referral earns their first $10.
Referrals can be made by inviting friends through emails, but it might be easier to put a CashCrate banner on your blog. Be sure to use a unique referral link that the new user can use so you get credit for the referral.
The referral link can also be printed on anything you use to promote your work with CashCrate, such as business cards, fliers or badges to put on your website.
CashCrate also has a QR Code that can be made unique to you. QR Codes allow mobile devices to scan the code and immediately go to your referrer URL, without having to type it in or remember it. Most smartphones can scan QR Codes.
