Did you know that you can get paid directly from Google to share their cloud-based business apps with your friends? Just this week Google dropped their Apps Referral Program which pays out $15 for every business referral that signs up for their cloud-based app.
Here are some more details on the cloud-based suite of apps below:
“The referral program makes it easy to share Google Apps with your network and show them how they too can use these tools at work,” Prajesh Parekh, part of the Google Apps Marketing team, wrote on the company’s blog. “To show our appreciation, we’re offering a $15 referral bonus for each new Google Apps user you refer.”Included in the suite of apps are Google’s email service Gmail; Google Drive, which allows employees to store files in the cloud to share and access anywhere; and Google Docs, which lets teams of professionals create, share and work on documents in real time.
Google Apps also features a spreadsheet program, Google Sheets; a presentation program, Google Slides; and a video-conferencing program, called Hangouts. Depending on the features a business desires, Google Apps costs either $5 or $10 a month per user.
Members of the program can refer an unlimited number of customers and are rewarded for each referral customer’s first 100 users, which are the individual accounts belonging to the customer domain. This means for each business that signs up100 employees, the referrer will get $1,500.
