It's considered bad form to begin a sentence with a numeral, so it's now grammatically safe to announce that 8x8, a VoIP business phone service, is offering subscribers “thousands of bonus dollars” this Christmas season through a company-sponsored word of mouth referral program.
Basically, the program pays cash rewards for recommending new subscribers to its service.
The 8x8 (News - Alert) Business Referral Program rewards existing subscribers and registered partners for submitting business referrals that become customers of 8x8's VoIP phone services, which include the 8x8 Virtual Office, a hosted PBX (News - Alert) phone service.
Participants in the program have an opportunity to earn unlimited cash rewards – tell me that wouldn't make your loved ones' Christmas a bit more holly jolly – to the tune of $100 for each qualifying Virtual Office extension the new customer orders, provided they remain a subscriber in good standing for at least 60 days.
Hey, even better – 60 days? You get the money when your Christmas credit card bills come due.
Brian Erk, President of Computer Networking Solutions, has been an 8x8 Virtual Office customer since April 2009 and has earned over $4,000 in referral rewards from his recommendations. Brian's friends and family will have a good Christmas.
There are no limits to the number of extensions or businesses participants in the 8x8 Business Referral Program can qualify for. Hence, a business referral that purchases 8x8 Virtual Office with 10 extensions generates a cash payment of $1,000 to the referrer.
Participants are asked only to provide the name and contact information of business acquaintances they're recommending to 8x8's phone service. Once that information is received, 8x8 business consultants schedule a call.
The 8x8 Chief Marketing Officer, Debbie Jo Severin (News - Alert), said the Referral Reward program has been "successful" for 8x8.
In September, 8x8 announced
at ITEXPO (News - Alert) a new, Web-based conferencing service to its existing portfolio of business communication offerings for small to medium sized businesses.
