We should reward members who actively promote XIO to help lift its profile in its journey to mainstream.
- Traditional referral system
- the XIO Citizenship form includes a new referral field to input the XID of the referrer.
- a tool to generate a unique referral URL for each unique XID that members can attach to their posts/blogs/profiles/vids, etc
To prevent creation of bots to game this, perhaps a bot is created to verify that the referring ID has minimum number of XIO in account?
The credits for basic referrals should be minimal, like 2 credits.
- Dynamic referral system
Beyond just basic sharing, some members might want to create quality content to promote XIO, like write up a detailed blog, or create an explanatory video, or create quality marketing content like ads and banners… These type of referrals should receive more credits, e.g. 10-30 credits. Perhaps there could be a basic grading system here like Saucy (basic), Juicy (intermediate), Sizzling (deep)… Not sure yet how the grading can be done objectively.
Members who create such content should submit an application for review (Typeform) with their XID.
They’re my initial thoughts. These should help toward XIO being a community built platform, just as it has already come so far.
