Thanks for featuring us Product Hunt! A little background on SmartBribe.... 1. We built this app a few days ago during a 24-hour Product Challenge (full story: http://vidfru.it/1pF7vgD) 2. The app solves a big problem for us: "How do we get people to send traffic to us once they optin" 3. We installed SmartBribe on our site and it increased our average daily share count from 10-15 shares per day to over 500 (in the first 24 hours) This is how it works: Step 1: First identify your most popular existing lead magnet (ebook, newsletter, video course etc) Step 2: Setup a SmartBribe to give away something in addition to that free thing on the thank you page (SB will allow you to give this additional thing in exchange for people telling their friends about you) Step 3: Once your peeps tell their friends about you (via Twitter and email) they’ll get the additional awesome thing It takes about 30 seconds to install. To see it in action go to SmartBribe.com. Going trough the signup process will show you what it looks like as we use SB to distribute SB (inception like).

Hey @harris_bryan Wow! This is cool - Wanted to give "Smart Bribe" a try and I see blank white page of death after email submission - I understand you had a server issue and wondering if this is fixed?

@athif Hmmm...it's working on our end. What browser are you in? Maybe we can diagnose the issue.
Would you recommend SmartBribe to a friend?

As a marketer I understand why you are making us submit an email address before trying out smartbribe. As a Product Hunter I absolutely hate submitting an email before trying out the app. It sends the wrong message to the community. That you care more about your signup numbers, than demo-ing the product. If you want positive feedback, you have to open the kimono 👘

@dredurr Hey Deandre! I appreciate you checking SB out. This is definitely something I thought about. But here is the deal... We thought it would be disingenuous to tell other people to use SmartBribe if we weren't using and demo-ing it ourself. We thought about the best way to do that and decided using it like we recommend others to use it would be the best way. This is how it works: 1. Find your most popular lead magnet 2. Install a SmartBribe on the TY page for it. 3. Offer some cool bonus content on that page 4. If peeps want in, they share. If not, they don't. Hope that helps. Rock on!

@dredurr I feel a lot of people do this more and more recently. My biggest issue is asking for a phone number and no alternative to see app on App Store (from desktop). There should always always always be a way to see how the product works. "Growth-hacking" is hardly a decent way to get users long term, or that matter. I feel this instance works best for things courses and markety stuff.

@bentossell @dredurr There is a video on the landing page showing how it works. Can always watch that to see if it's a good fit. But there really is no way around asking for your email (we don't ask for phone number), the app requires an account to use (so we can store your bribes and related info), so wether we ask for it on a landing page or the account setup page, it's kinda all the same.

@harris_bryan oh yeah I know I just meant for these "growth hack" style pages that I see and different versions of getting info. :)

@harris_bryan your idea has assumption that people would already have subscribed it will subscribe. The challenge I am facing is how to get initial traffic on landing page and convert to subscribe before app launch . Example: I have app getting ready in mid April called www.choicys.com. It is food recommendation private messenger basically whatsapp + Yelp a layer above Yelp where we find restaurants and dish recommended from our friends. You can send shout out Ask or push reco. I have landing page in place but conversion very less. How do I let people know to visit the page ? Currently, I am taking food photos posting on Fb, Instagram, Fb groups and try to get relevant food lovers traffic. Can anyone here advice ?
Dan Brooks@ramtorn · Pro at Onboarding.pro
@dredurr Second that. I would also note that the tagline is catchy, but gimmicky at the same time

@harris_bryan well, then by virtue of feedback here, it sounds like your product may not have mass appeal for the PH types - but seems to work we'll with other groups...maybe a different kind of demo?

@bentossell @harris_bryan really? Real money and time goes into developing these applications. The least we can do is give our email to the ones that are interesting to us.

@cameronrohani This comment gives me reddit flashbacks :P You guys are also creating stuff, you know the work that it takes, be positive, or say what you don't like but try to put a positive spin into it. These kinds of comments aren't good to anyone.

Another helpful tool for growth, thanks Bryan! Really enjoy watching your 24 hour product cycles.

This is brilliant, and even smarter that Bryan is using the app itself to promote... the app itself. The proof is in the meta-pudding, my friends.
