since you have good services and good prices, a referral program would be nice too, for making more money for both you guys and us ... :)
We are currently running a referral program through Commission Junction but we will be writing and implementing our own in the next couple of weeks.
Or Reseller Program...:D
Nice, I'd be interested too.
Thanks for your input and for referring people and we've had people also refer other customers to us who are also happy customers and wanted to get a few credits for it.
Also this is a referral program, not a reseller program.
Which means we aren't white labelling digitalocean it's just a way for customers to refer other users and get a bonus in the process.
I would like to get in on a referral program
When we launch the referral program we will be announcing it via the blog and twitter and you'll be able to register =]
I like the idea. I already refer people to you any time they ask about hosting (I'm a webdev). It'd be nice to have a good referral program. I'd be able to get my clients on good hosting (*caugh* not godaddy *caugh*) and make a little extra, or at least save on my own servers (if it's credit based).
It will be credit based but I'm sure we'll figure out some minimum threshold at which we can also send out funds to customers that refer a lot of people =]
@Kerem , a lot of referal programs are bad. So yes, by association, this program might be looked down upon. However, it's better to have a referral to a very good service, rather than the one willing to pay the most. For example: Rackspace. They have a good referral program, but their services are 4x the price of DigitalOcean. It'll let the people that refer for money to refer to a better service. It's too bad that the current customer of GoDaddy I'm moving won't get to use the referral program (paying $10/mo for shared hosting and 10x the page load time of DO's cheapest server). But I'm not too broken up about it; it would just be nice to get a bonus for it. Hopefully the great service will override the connotations.
Great news that referral program is started!
Can anyone tell me howto use the referral program?
It hasn't been launched yet publicly but will soon =]
Waiting for this too.
Go go Digitalocean!
Ok, "started" means its in development and hasnt launched. Weired naming ..
There are only a couple of statuses with UserVoice and we use them as follows:
No Status / Open = Waiting for more votes or more discussions from customers
UnderReview = Interesting, but not yet approved
Planned = Approved and we will implement at some point
Started = Code development has begun
Completed = Done! yay
In the case of the Referral program is pretty much finished but it will be launched with the new control panel which is in the works - its about 60% finished
I feel the best (incentive) option for the Referral Program is "Credit Based". This definitely brings a sort of genuine attention both from the Current and Prospective Customers. And you always have options to refine the approach.
It will be credits based. =]
You won't be notified about changes to this idea.
