Membership Referral Program
Summer’s here (hey what’s a little rain amongst friends) and we want to open a brewery. What about you? We’re kicking off an on-going Member Referral Program to encourage growing membership. We would like YOUR help in spreading the word about Flying Bike. Our projections show if each current member brings in 2 new members we can begin to scout our brewery and taproom location and source equipment. To show our collective appreciation, we have lined up some exclusive prizes and incentives for those with big black books or excellent persuasive reasoning. (No calls to Tony Soprano, please.)
Here’s how the Member Referral Program works…
Every month, starting June 2012, we will be recognizing the members who bring in the most referrals. We’re kicking off the Sprint Series, a monthly leaderboard for the person bringing in the most new members. Anyone who brings in a minimum of three new members will be listed on the monthly Leaderboard. New members signing up via our website must include your member name in the ‘Referred By:’ box on the application. The sprint champion will receive an exclusive Flying Bike Sprint Series T-shirt, personalized with your name and member number. Each Sprint Series will conclude the final day of each month.
But we all know the race is not just for the swift, but those who keep pedaling. So, fasten your seatbelts, clip on your helmets, and prepare for take-off, as we are bolstering the Referral Program with the Runway Series. Rewards are:
o 10 Referrals. A limited edition Flying Bike Long Course Hooded Sweatshirt with your member number on it. We know hoodies are popular up here and we’ll likely have several in the future, but 10 referrals will be the ONLY way to get this one.
o 20 Referrals. Membership in the Flying Bike Mug Club. Referring all those new members will make you thirsty. Your personalized mug will include your member number etched on, and having your own glassware has its perks. Bigger pours and bragging rights just to name a few (air of smugness not included). Beer tastes better in the Mug Club!
o 20+ Referrals. Still referring people after earning the Hoodie and getting into the coveted Mug Club? Have you considered running for public office? You rock! We will come up with additional prizes as needed for you. (Your picture hanging behind the bar? A special beer dinner? Your own custom bar stool? We will come up with something cool for anyone that delivers the heavy lifting we need for takeoff!)
The Runway Series will continue until further notice, and we’d LOVE to hand out lots of sweatshirts at this year’s Annual Meeting in the Fall.
To help you bring your friends on-board, we’re working on some talking points and tips for you. And remember, a referral only counts if your name is listed in Referred By field. Still have questions? Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Let the Sprint begin!
