Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) has announced a huge referral program today. If you refer a new customer to use the Google Apps office and productivity suite, you will get a $15 bonus per user. This will encourage users of the service to recommend Google Apps to other people.
“Many of the millions of Google Apps customers learned about tools like Hangouts, Drive and Gmail for business from their customers, friends and networks. To help continue the momentum, we?re launching the Google Apps Referral Program. The referral program makes it easy to share Google Apps with your network and show them how they too can use these tools at work. To show our appreciation, we?re offering a $15 referral bonus for each new Google Apps user you refer,” stated Prajesh Parekh of the Google Apps Marketing team on the Google Enterprise Blog.
Google Apps is used by 5 million businesses and includes products like Google Calendar, Gmail, Google Drive, Google Docs, and Google Slides. Participants will be required to give Google a valid taxpayer ID and bank account in order to receive direct deposits. Participants will be given a unique referral link to share with people through e-mail and website templates.
Businesses will earn $15 per user up to the company’s first 100 users who have paid for at least 120 days. The participants will also be given coupons to encourage sign-ups, which offers the new customer the ability to save $10 per user during their first year. This program will debut in the U.S. and Canada.
