This week marks the launch of a brand spankin’ new referral program. After listening to your feedback, we made tweaks to our process to make earning money and saving energy even easier (and more profitable) than it already is.

1) You can now earn $20 + your referral earns $10 AND $10 when they connect their first smart device.

OhmConnect is a power-in-numbers program. The more people save, the more impact our community makes. We want to encourage you to continue sharing our program with your friends, so we’ve launched a new referral program that gives your friends more of an incentive to join.

The new referral program includes:

  • $20 for you! When someone signs up using your personal referral link and gets to Silver status, you still get $20
  • $10 for your friend when they reach Silver
  • An EXTRA $10 for your friends when they connect their first smart device. Does your friend not have a smart device? No problem! They can use a personalized code we’ll send them to get a TP-Link smart wifi plug from the OhmConnect store for just $10. Then, when they connect it to their OhmConnect account they’ll get another 1000 points (or $10), so the device is essentially free!

2) Share the love: Now you can gift your OhmConnect points to your friends!

One awesome piece of insight we got about our users is that they are incredibly generous! Many people inquired as to whether it was possible to ‘gift’ their points to another individual or to a cause and we’re happy to announce that you now can!

With our newest feature, you can send points to people you’ve referred or who are on your team.

You could:

  • Pool your points together with your teammates to go in on a purchase together
  • Donate your pooled points to your favourite charity or community organization
  • Encourage one of your referrals to complete their enrolment with points available in their account as soon as they’re officially on board
  • … make someone’s day!

To do so, just click ‘Cash Out’ from your dashboard, then ‘Send Points’ at the top and voila! You can choose a friend to send your points to and then choose how many points to give them.

Let the gifting begin!

3) Seven email templates to get your friends on board

Want to explain OhmConnect to different kinds of people with a wide spectrum of questions or concerns? We've got you covered. We’ve drafted a few different ways you can talk about OhmConnect - how it helps you save money, use less energy, and reduce your environmental impact. We've also spelled out how your referrals can connect their utility accounts. Check it all out on the blog!

4) You’ve got a personalized referral link!

To make it easier to remember than a scrambled mess of letters and digits, your referral link will now always match your OhmConnect username. You can find your personal link here. Share it with friends, post it online, and earn 2000 ($20) points for everyone that signs up and reaches Silver.

5) Automatic reminder emails to people you've already invited

Sometimes it takes people a little while to fully sign up for OhmConnect. Now you can help remind them automatically, without needing to lift a finger. You can turn on reminder emails for all your contacts and include a special note to go out each week. (And rest assured, you can still send personalized messages too!)  Check it out for yourself — it's at the bottom of your referrals page.

6) Invites made easier

Can’t remember your referral link? At any time you can text the word 'invite' to OhmConnect (410-99) and we'll send your personal referral link back to you — which you can then share easily from your phone. And the same rule works for email, too. Just email and we'll send you back a message you can forward to anyone you know.
