Google Wants to Pay You for Referring Google Business Apps Customers
Posted By Joshua Sophy On March 13, 2014 @ 10:30 am In Technology Trends | 2 Comments
Google has introduced a referral program that pays $15 per new signup for its paid Google Apps for Business Service.
This is the pro version of Google Apps. It features souped-up versions of Google’s popular free cloud-based Web apps like Gmail, Google Drive and Calendar.
For instance, at just $5 per month per user, your business can have custom Gmail addresses and 30 GB of email and Google Drive storage. Google also offers round-the-clock customer support for Apps for Business customers. These apps can be accessed from any device and allow you to collaborate in real time with any other user.
So if your business already uses Google Apps and you think another business could benefit from them, Google will pay you for that referral. Writing on the official Google Enterprise Blog, channel marketing lead Prajesh Parekh explains :
“Many of the millions of Google Apps customers learned about tools like Hangouts, Drive and Gmail for business from their customers, friends and networks. 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.”
Google has what appears to be a simple sign up process for the program. Here’s how it works :
There is a chance to earn more than just spare change here, too.
If you eventually refer a business that has a lot of employees, Google pays you for the first 100 people who sign up for the premium services from a single referral. For example, if a business you refer to Apps for Business signs up 10 employees, you’d receive $15 for each new signup: $150.
