Consider a referrals program to encourage more members #561
I think a full month free might be a bit much, although I suppose it would help to get people through the door. Maybe something like £50 off your first month, and the person who refers you gets £50 off too, with that repeating every six(?) months, which might encourage people to stick around. Also, it would mean that if you're smart and introduced six people at the right times, you could get your bill down by £50 permanently :)…

What would that look like? What would we offer? Is it a good idea? — You are receiving this because you are subscribed to this thread.

Maybe do a Hunger Games and the more of X, Y, and Z you do the more DoESKarma you build.
Each month everybody's DoESKarma goes into the pot (so the reverse of H.G. where the more you borrow the more tickets go into the draw) and the more you do the more likely you are to win...
Something! Cake (low carb cake) or cool tech. stuff or I dunno.
Sounds difficult to administer.
Surely it's easy to credit a newbie's account with workshop/desk days, say 5?
As for the referrer, I think it's best they get/use something tangible which could link to #68 such as twenty quid preloaded to do what they want with in DoES, or even donate it back to the cause.
