So long and farewell to August. And HELLLLOOO September! At YouNow, ushering in a new month means one thing, NEW REWARDS!
HOW DO I EARN REWARDS?
In September we will reward you for recruiting new users. What exactly does that mean? Let me break it down for you.
We reward users that recruit new registered users to the YouNow community DURING THE MONTH OF SEPTEMBER. The concept is easy - the more NEW users you refer to YouNow AND who BECOME YOUNOW MEMBERS the more rewards you get!
There are 2 ways to recruit new users:
1. While broadcasting: Any new user that comes to the site and registers during your broadcast is automatically credited to you as a recruit, whether you invited them or not! So the more you broadcast and spread the word, the more recruits you gain.
2. By sharing and inviting users: Every time you post a link using the “Share” button, (by tweeting, publishing a link to a YouNow broadcast or profile page via Facebook, etc.) it contains a unique reference to you as the originator of the link. This unique URL gives you credit for every time a new user comes to the site and becomes a YouNow member through the link you’ve shared.
You will be able to view the number of new gained at any time in your “My Stats” page:
The number of recruits gained will also be displayed at the end of each broadcast.
And you can easily find out how many recruits you earned in between sessions in your inbox.
Additionally, the total number of recruits a user has gained will appear in the area below the video screen every 2 minutes.
SO HOW MANY RECRUITS DO I NEED TO GET TO EARN PRIZES?
Tell us how excited you are in the comments below!
Remember, there are friends to be made, coins to be earned, and NEW prizes to be won at YouNow. So be sure to keep calm, go live and RECRUIT!
