8×8 Inc. (EGHT) VoIP business phone service subscribers are earning thousands of bonus dollars this holiday season, the company said, through a company-sponsored word-of-mouth referral program that pays healthy cash rewards for recommending new subscribers to its service.
The 8×8 “Business Referral Program,” which actually began six months ago, rewards existing subscribers and registered partners for submitting business referrals that become customers of 8×8’s money-saving VoIP phone services, which include the 8×8 Virtual Office solution, a hosted PBX phone service now in use by more than 18,000 businesses. Participants in the program have an opportunity to earn unlimited cash rewards 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. This results in a win-win situation for both 8×8 and its subscribers, as the company receives a valuable, cost-effective lead backed by a personal recommendation and the subscriber receives compensation for sharing a positive user experience with friends and colleagues.
There are no limits to the number of extensions or businesses for which participants in the 8×8 Business Referral Program can qualify. Hence, a business referral that purchases 8×8 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 feel could benefit from using 8×8’s phone service. Once that information is received, 8×8 business consultants schedule a call in order to understand the business needs, tell the referral about 8×8 and, if it’s a good fit, suggest the best service for their business.
