Today, we’re really excited to announce that we just doubled the potential benefits for subscribers using our referral program! Now, if you refer SproutVideo to a friend, colleague, or some random stranger on the street, they’ll automatically receive $25.00 off their first month of video hosting. And, for every paying customer you refer to us, you’ll receive a $25.00 account credit.

Sharing the love has never been so sweet! If it sounds too good to be true, read on for the details on how our new, improved referral program works.

How it Works

Every SproutVideo subscriber has a unique referral link associated with their account. When that link is shared by email, on social media, or on a billboard (if you try that last one, we want to see it!), anyone who signs up via that unique URL will be tagged as a referred subscriber for your account. You can easily track whether your friends are taking advantage of this awesome deal by looking at a simple report in your admin dashboard.

The reporting in your admin dashboard also allows you to track how many account credits you have earned, to the tune of $25.00 for each referred friend who activates their account and remains a customer for at least a month. Why do they have to stick around for so long before you get the credit posted to your account? It’s a simple way to prevent fraud and to keep the system fair for everyone.

Your referred friends, however, benefit immediately from your sage advice to use SproutVideo as their video hosting provider. Thanks to you, on top of all our terrific features, they can now save $25.00 off their first month of video hosting. That could be the equivalent of a free month depending on the subscription plan they select, just for using your unique referral link when they open their account.

There are no limits to the number of people you can refer, or the amount of account credit you can earn, all while saving your friends money on a vital business service.

The Exact Steps to Take to Make a Referral

First, log into your SproutVideo account and click on Account at the top of the screen. Then, on the lefthand side of the screen, click “Referrals”. Easy enough so far, right?

Next, copy your unique referral link and share it with anyone you know who might be looking for a video hosting provider (these days, that’s anyone with a website).

You can share it by email, on social media, paper handouts, on a business card – pretty much anywhere you can think of. Including simple instructions, such as, “Click this link to save $25.00 on professional video hosting with SproutVideo” will help point your friends in the right direction. Once they sign up, they will automatically receive the $25.00 credit – you don’t have to do anything else. You get to sit back and watch the account credits roll in.

So, log into your SproutVideo account, and get started! Don’t have an account yet? Sign up here, and start helping friends save money today. Feel free to ask any questions in the comments below, or by contacting our support team.
