Tell A Friend
Marketing With Tell A FriendTell A Friend forms, are forms that users fill out on your web site, to tell their friends about your site. When a person fills out the form, each of their friends is sent your URL together with a message inviting them to visit.
Most people won't fill out these kinds of forms unless they have some reason to do so - either there is something that they know their friends will like - or they are being offered some kind of incentive to tell their friends.
However... if you can get people to actually use your forms, they can be super effective in increasing web site traffic. Who wouldn't visit a web page that a friend took the trouble to tell them about?
So, the question is how do you get people to use your Tell A Friend forms?
Here's a few ideas:
Implementing Tell A FriendTell A Friend can be implemented on your own site (recommended) using an ASP, CGI or PHP script) - or can be implemented through somebody else's server ("Remotely Hosted").
We think it is generally better to use your own site for Tell A Friend, because, most Remotely Hosted services place their adverts (instead of yours) either in the messages, or during the browser display during form processing.
The Tell A Friend scripts that we have listed are divided into categories based on how they are implemented. If you use an ASP, CGI or PHP script, you will of course need a web host that supports the facilities needed to install the particular script that you choose.
In the resource section, you'll find following categories of Tell A Friend scripts:
