It "pays" to be active on the ForumPosted in Announcements by CC Wendy
Yes, it's true, it really "pays" to be active on the Forum at Cashcrate. How so? Because of the great exposure it gives you for the Referral program!
When I am looking at a new website & thinking about joining, I always go to the Forum or read the comments in the reviews and articles. I want to see what others are talking about and saying about the site. I'm sure that a big percentage of people who come across Cashcrate do the same thing. If those Forum guests see you are an active, engaging member, wouldn't they want to be one of your Referrals?
There are ways to make yourself stand out, without being spammy, because that's the last thing you want to do! First, make sure you have your Forum Signature set up correctly. It's really easy to do, there are instructions located here: Signature Instructions Once your signature is set up, every time you post your banner or link will also post below your comments. When a guest visits the forum, and clicks your banner to join, they are your Referral!
Now that you have that set up (wasn't that easy), you should start posting. Again, you don't want to post a bunch of random, spammy threads. You should look at the categories and look for new posts (they will light up with a darker color than posts that you've read before). If it's a subject that you might be able to lend some useful information, comment on that thread. If you have a question that you think might also benefit other members, create a new thread of your own to see what other members might have to say.
Now back to how it 'pays' to be active... I just checked and there were 75 people viewing the Forum, 47 of those were guests! That's 47 people right now who are checking us out and potentially want to join. More than likely, they will check out the most recent threads first. Have you commented on those? If not, you're missing a golden opportunity to get your name out there and get new Referrals!
For webmasters and bloggers: Another great reason to set up your Signature is that your Cashcrate friendly blog or website will get some great backlink exposure by being part of such a large/active Forum!
Be sure you check out all of the rules and FAQ's of the Forum before you jump in, and ask if you have any questions!
Good Luck :)
