How to Increase Referral Payouts Using Text and Email

Posted by Michael Bachman on Jul 18, 2018 1:10:00 PM

At Preferhired, we try to make the referral process as simple as possible so you can focus on the who rather than the how. Using text and email is a great way to share a job posting when you have a particular referral (or referrals) in mind for a role you’ve found. It’s quick, it’s personal, and your referral has a good chance of seeing your message sooner when sent directly to their personal phone or email account.

Once you have created a Preferhired Referrer account, follow these simple steps to make a referral and start getting paid cash rewards today via PayPal:

How to Make a Referral Using Text

  1. Login to your Preferhired account (if using text to make a referral, you will want to use your smartphone for this process).
  2. Under the menu, click on “SEARCH JOBS” to browse job postings.
  3. Once you see a posting that you’d like to share with a candidate, copy your referral link by clicking on one of the blue “SHARE JOB” buttons in the job post.1.pngOr click the “DIRECT LINK” button from the list of jobs (this button says “REFER AND EARN” on the mobile view).Untitled.png

  4. You’ll be given a link to copy into a text to send to your candidate.

Best Practices for Sharing through Email and Text

  1. When sharing these jobs through text messaging make sure that you’re sharing it with a friend who would actually be interested in the job. Spamming friends is not the way to increase referral rewards and may end up causing strife.
  2. If you’re sharing this job out through a list of contacts in your email list be sure to use one of our already designed email templates so it accurately describes the job and links them to the right listing.
  3. Using email and text can seem spammy quickly so make sure you’re coming from a good place and you’re targeting the right individual(s) as much as you can.
  4. Most importantly, use your specific Preferhired Direct Link.
