Hmmm any way we can tie this into what we are doing at https://GetSyrup.com?

Hey everyone! I’m the Founder of Intro.ly. I’m grateful to be able to share our latest work with you. My company Intro.ly has developed a platform to help anyone with a mobile phone make extra income by recommending products to their friends through text messaging. We are an SMS-based service which lets you chat directly with members of our team to let them know about friends you have who are interested in purchasing certain products and services. In exchange for the referral, we pay you (and your friend) a percentage of the sale by sending you Cash Back to your PayPal, SquareCash or Google Wallet account. We realized one day when sitting in a restaurant and overhearing people around us talking about products to their friends. We said to each other, “How great would it be if someone could get paid for sharing this information to retailers?” We set out to build a low barrier-to-entry platform where nearly anyone could just grab their phone, text us some info about what their friend is looking to buy, and receive cash back payments on the purchase. The goal was to create a plug-and-play system which anyone could use to create extra income or launch their own home-based affiliate marketing business. We’re excited (and humbled) to be a part of the community at Product Hunt and look forward to your questions and feedback.

Interesting. How do you guys guarantee a payment to all involved (including yourselves), since not every product referred will have an affiliate program?

@bradungar Hi Brad. Great question. 2 ways: In this case, we would most likely upfront the payment using a portion of our longer-term revenue from our other channels. Or, we offer the customer complimentary products and/or services which do have an affiliate program. It's entirely based on the customer's choice as to which method we would use.

Why in your storytelling are you using the reference of a friend? Can’t I ask you directly for things I might need?

@siddharth_nahar Hi Siddharth. You can certainly ask us directly for things as well. The service can work both ways. I hope this helps.

@derekdevore Thanks for replying. My curiosity was around the storytelling part as to why are you projecting this product with reference to a friend. Did the idea born out this way? Do you think this is the biggest use-case for your product?

@siddharth_nahar Hi Siddharth.Yes, we do think that's the biggest use-case. We basically formed the initial idea to serve two markets: Those who would find it helpful to earn some side-income and those who enjoyed getting cash back (and other discounts) on purchases. Our product, in its simplistic form, is meant to capture "information" between two individuals having a conversation about their potential needs for certain products and services. Once "captured" and sent to us, both individuals now have the opportunity to either make income or earn cashback - whereas before, the same conversation would occur and disappear with no real tangible benefit to either person. Sure it's fun to talk about new products with friends, etc. but we think it's even more fun earning a bit of money too. That's a kind of high-level, whimsical answer to your question (lol) but that is how we see the idea.
