Now, if you are trying to get someone to sign up using your referral link, you will want to give them as much information as you can so that their minds are at ease. You might want to let them know some key points:
Points2shop works with different advertisers. They give points2shop their banners, and their links. Points2shop then has members who are interested in that offer that uses the offer. When that offer is used, points2shop gets paid for sending the customer to that website. When points2shop gets paid, we pay a big portion of that back to the member who completed the offer.
This makes for a happy relationship between everyone. The advertiser receives the members that they want, points2shop receives the funds to keep points2shop up and running, and then gives a portion of that money to the member.
Points2shop isn't a site that you get 'free' things from. Points2shop is a site that you earn things from. You are spending your time on the site, and receiving a gift in return.
You might want to use a prewritten message for when you are promoting your own links:
I wanted to take the time to tell you a little about the site that I have been participating in lately. The name of the site is www.points2shop.com. This isn't a 'Get Free Things' site. In fact, nothing in life is free. However, this is a site that you can use to EARN things that you would otherwise have to pay for.
I know, you're probably thinking 'How is that possible!' well, it's possible because advertisers place their links on the points2shop website. Then members like myself go and complete the offers that we are interested in. When I do an offer, points2shop gets paid for bringing me to that advertisers website. When points2shop gets paid, they give me a portion of that payment so that I can then get things from Amazon.com.
If you need to know more information you can check their forums where members post the things that they have received for earning points on the points2shop website here.

Tips and tricks to earn more as an affiliate
- From our experience, you will get the best results from writing your own site reviews, even if it's short. You don't have to be a good writer. Just write what you really think about the site. When you publish your site review, use your general affiliate link (on the top) to send user to our website.
- You will have much better conversion if you'll put your visitors into a moneymaking mood before sending them to our site. Creating this moneymaking mood means that you build interest in the website and visitor has decided to potentially start completing offers after he reads your site review. Choose from various types of site descriptions, download and adjust them to fit in your site. Experiment with short or long, try to find perfect combination with banners.
- Try to think like a visitor, when he comes to your page with review or affiliate link, you should draw his attention, build curiosity etc..
- Experiment with different banners, text links, or reviews. Keep these that bring good results, and change the others. Sometimes only change of few words or color of link can mean difference.
- Use sites like dot.tk and tinyurl.com to shorten your referral link. Make it short and catchy. One, it is easier for a friend to type it in. Two, eliminates the chance for someone to delete your referral ID, which would allow them to join up without crediting you.
