    Bonuses are by definition something special, maybe even unexpected – in any case, rare perks that few of us ever incorporate in our daily budgeting. If you’re a Splend member, it’s time to change the way you think about bonuses.

    With the Splend referral program there’s no limit to the number of people you can refer to us. In other words, you can collect the $150 bonus as often as you want.  This makes networking a truly profitable activity, so

    you can think of the cash bonuses as a regular supplement to your income that you can count on

    as long as you keep your eyes peeled for referral opportunities.

    Maximise your referral income

    As a testament to the referral program being a viable source of extra income, one of our members has brought more than ten other new drivers to Splend. He was also kind enough to share his strategy, which can be summed up in the 5-tips below:

    1. Referral cards

    Ridesharing is an intriguing subject – no wonder people ask you about your job all the time. If they want to follow in your track, all you have to do is give them your unique referral code and ask them to use it when signing up. It’s in their interest too, as your code cuts $50 off their joining fee too.

    To make the process easy and elegant, you can ask your Member Success Representative for a couple of Splend referral cards that you can always carry with you in your wallet. You can find your unique Splend referral code in your Splend members app.

    2. Social media

    To most members, posting a selfie with their shiny new car comes naturally when they come to pick up their vehicles. And so does the attention of their friends and followers, especially those who are already interested in trying their luck as a rideshare driver. It’s the nature of the job that you’ll have plenty of stories to share as you roam the city, so finding new conversation-starters shouldn’t be too difficult either.

    3. Gumtree

    You can post a job ad on Gumtree for free, and just tell people about your work at Splend when they reach out to you. Don’t forget to mention the $50 discount they have on their joining fee if they use your referral code when signing up. They can then decide if they want to follow through or not.

    Important: if you’re advertising for referrals, use your own language and images, and don’t include Splend’s branding.

    4. Community notice boards

    It’s sometimes worth rediscovering the old-fashioned ways. It literally takes less than a minute to place some A5 ads at your local notice boards.

    Keep it simple: just add some information about the car, pricing, and your contact details. Don’t forget to mention the discount. You’ll be amazed how efficient these things can still be today

    The same rule applies to reaching out to communities offline as to online advertising: don’t use Splend’s name, logo or visual identity in your notices.

    5. Splend member events

    Talking about Splend is one thing, but it will never compare to actually spending time in our community. You’re probably familiar with our member events, but you may not be aware that these are basically open-house parties – anyone is welcome, not only members.

    Bring your friends and family to these events, as it’s the greatest way to get them familiar with the way Splend works and how we can help them become a successful Uber driver.
