Activate SIM card when ordered via referral link

By: wfudin2 | 14-02-2019 14:28

So far to date I have had 15 people order a SIM card via my referral link. However only 3 have activated their SIM card.

I won't speculate as to why they have not activated their SIM card, however I think it would make more sense for the customer at the point of ordering their SIM, they are made to order their first goodybag.

This seems to be the norm with other networks, and the usual 14 day return rules would apply if they do change their mind.

I believe this would massively increase conversion rates of SIM ordered to activated, as the customer has already financially invested in the SIM and network.

If anyone has any feedback please let me know.

Thanks for reading.

I totally agree! You go to all the effort of introducing them to the benefits of GiffGaff and "bigging-up" their USPs, ordering a SIM to go to their address to make it nice and convenient for them, then.................


How rude!!

A lesson I have learned over my many years of doing referral business is to never leave it to the recipient to complete the action. Instead, keep the lead live by keeping control until the task is complete. If they want to cancel/decline/return the offer, that's up to them. At least your mission is complete; most people are happy to let others take the reins anyway.

Good idea and also give the chance to get community help with the new sim and becoming a member of Giffgaff.

a very good recommendation as it leaves the member to decide what he/she wants to do with their top up.

I doubt it will get adopted though.

Yeah I like this idea like. While ordering your sim you choose and pay for your first goody bag or credit package, makes it easier for the promoters of giffgaff and helps to secure more members.

So why did you support it with multiple comments earlier? Spamming?
