    Is anyone using the old Good Karma offer?

    Something like, “You seem to share the goal I have of helping change the world for the better. I have a way we can do this together. Send three friends this totally free resource I have to help them ____ and then come back and click this link when you have done that on your honor and I will give you this ____ for helping me help the world.”

    Test it, Scott, if it fits your style. You’ll never know until you try… and what works for me might not work for you.

    I don’t believe in “karma.”

    To me, it’s a fundamental misunderstanding that’s common to many people – that when two things happen at the same time, one must cause the other.

    That’s simply not the case.

    The format that you’ve described is a form of “chain letter.”

    This kind of thing has been making the rounds for decades.

    Don’t waste your time on it.

    I see this a lot as yes it reminds me of a chain letter, why not just offer the people some firstly that gives them value (they can optin) and then send a them a follow up email and in that situation you could ask for feedback or as that stage ask them to share it. Give them the link to the optin page again to send to friend and connect with them and say something like “would you mind sending this link to anyone else you think has xxx problem or would love to achieve xxx as my goal is to help as many people as possible and I find when this link is coming from a friend they will open it and get the help they need”
    Just rough but hopefully you get the idea 🙂
    I have done this a few times and mad sure the link I put I could measure and I got go results.

    Years ago, Frank Kern hired someone to make this software that you could put on your website and he said if you send this free gift link to three people through this window (or like my facebook page and post there or whatever, there were several versions of it) I will give you this gift free for helping me help the world. The software checked to see if they really did it. He called it the Good Karma offer. If you help others with this free gift, then you will receive the reward of Good Karma and I will send you this for helping me help the world.

    I think he doubled his list in a week and was at about six times when he quit using it. Of course he was doing other things that multiplied his list six times too, but he said it was the most amazing thing he ever did.

    He then used the software as a give away or bonus for one of his programs and it drove the search engines, email companies and social media outlets wild. They changed their systems to stop it.

    People were modifying it to capture the emails even if the people that received the link didn’t opt in. There were several ways to abuse it. So they fire walled it.

    But, I have heard of people doing it without the software. They just say something like, “I think you are a good guy or gal and want to help the world, I share that with you. If you will work with me to help the world by sending this free resource to three of your friends, then come back and on your honor, click here when you are done, then I will give you this great bonus to reward you and help you reach your goals and change the world for the better. We are in this together.”

    I am wondering what results they are getting. I have seen the marketing piece, but I don’t know how the “On your honor” method is working out.

    Just throwing it out as an idea and wondering if anyone has any experience.

      This technique was popular several years ago. The software would claim that your offers/posts would go viral. The software would not give you the freebie until you entered 3 friends emails/Twitter or some such thing. I did not hear of people having a lot of success with this method.

    My wife does similar things for coupons. I know she likes facebook pages and shares things to get cents off on mayonnaise or something….cat food…even dog food and we don’t have a dog, no joke, she gives it to the neighbor. (for his dog, come on now 🙂

    She is a do gooder.

    I guess I am her biggest charitable project.
