# Highest EPMV by Referral: How to Know Who is Referring High EPMV Visitors

If you translate referral from the English word, you get direction. Within the framework of the marketing program, this is a user who has registered on the project on someone else's recommendation (link). A referral is the same visitor and user of the site as others, without any restrictions. The person who brought a new user to the project will receive referral money for those actions. Which is done by the person he brought. Respectively. The more people follow the referral link, the more passive earnings will be.

## Highest EPMV by Referral: How to Know Who is Referring High EPMV Visitors

**What are referrals for?**

On any commercial project where payment for user actions is offered, registration and active participation of new members are encouraged. The influx of visitors allows you to develop the resource faster, and user engagement increases the site's position in the search results. One of the ways to actively work with traffic is a referral program, under the terms of which partners are paid a commission.

- Commission can be a percentage of earnings. The advantage is that the rewards are paid for the service budget. Thus, the master and the referral receive their earned money.
- Income does not come from the number of attracted people, but from their active actions on the site. That is, you can not invest your funds in the project at all and at the same time receive commissions due to the activity of referrals. Accordingly, the referrer must teach, show, instruct the recruit how to work on the service. This is necessary to keep the attracted person active. Otherwise, an inactive referral will not bring anything to the master.
- Website promotion, traffic flow. With the correct submission of the referral program, traffic to the project increases exponentially.

There are several myths in the area of referral earnings. Consider them:

- More referrals - more passive income. This is partly true, but the referrer's earnings depend not on the number of invited participants, but on their activity. Accordingly, the correct statement should sound like this: more active referrals - higher income.
- Passive income is equal to passive attitude towards work. Such programs do not imply a strict schedule of activity, but in order to obtain a passivity, you need to devote time to finding and training new participants. Only an active referrer will have an active referral.
- The ways to attract participants are limited. This is not true. You can distribute your referral link through any channels. The success criterion is the number of active participants. Where the referrer will look for them is his own business.
- Post links - spam. It all depends on the referrer's approach. If he sends the same type of messages, imposed on users, offers to follow the link and register on the resource, such actions will be regarded as spam. You need to be more creative and try not to work with resources that are already regarded as scams.

### What referrals are there

The classification is actually not as extensive as it might seem. A referral can be direct or indirect. Direct is a user who went to the project via a link, directly from the sponsor. That is, he is a member of the first level. No project will limit their number, because this is their most targeted traffic.

A referral, as a member of the system, can invite people through his link and also earn on their activity. In relation to the first referrer, the invited participants will be considered indirect, that is, referrals of the second level. Their number is limited, as well as the percentage of earnings from them is lower. But this is completely passive earnings. The referrer does not even need to do anything with the participants of the second and third level in order to receive a commission. All the work is done by referrals of the first round.

*As an example, the Ezoic referral program, which presents successfully working variants of the program. Ie referrers receive earnings on referrals who have become active users of the site. Or, when bonuses also come from the actions of new members already attracted by referrals, who appeared in a commercial project due to the activity of the referrer himself.*

Income is generated after the person invited by the referral link starts making money on the project or using its paid services. Commissions are paid as a percentage of the referral's income / amount spent.

### How to attract referrals to any project

There are two ways to get referrals to any project:

- Passive search. The link is posted on the website, forum, service, social network in the form of a small advertisement or post. An important condition for effectiveness is that the description must be catchy and interesting to the target audience. Any person can become a referrer. He simply takes the link, registers on the project and invites referrals through it.
- Active. Here, the participant is required to complete some task or action. What does a referral do? For example, he participates in a survey, subscribes to a newsletter, watches content, and more. After that, he gets access to the site. Accordingly, the person who completed the target action is more inclined to actively work in the project than the user who came from a passive search. The percentage of active participants is always less, but the entire earnings of the referrer depends on them.

There are many sites for posting links. It is desirable to use everything, but you can select the most effective and work only with them:

- Own site. Can be used as passive. So is an active attraction option, to motivate participants with bonuses and benefits.
- Video on YouTube channel. The link is usually placed at the end of the video and in the description below it. If the channel is not yours, then you can insert the link in the comments.
- Social networks. Collecting referrals from this channel is the cutest thing. A post with a link can be placed in your group, by thematic communities, advertised in a target.
- Subject forums. For example, communities for making money on the Internet, Forex, website promotion and others.
- Tell colleagues, friends, relatives - launch word of mouth on the Internet to attract more acquaintances as link distributors.

It is recommended to choose sites with high traffic. To understand whether the site is live and how popular it is among users, just look at the statistics counter. If the resource has something to be proud of, then the traffic metric will be in the footer of the site. Work with sites from 1000 visitors per day.
