3 customers to start promoting Sim cards on social networking sites
3 is asking its customers to act as ‘free agents’ and promote the operator on social networking sites in return for cash rewards.
The company will pay people who take part in the ‘3 Free Agent’ programme once the Sim cards are connected.
Customers involved in promoting the network will earn £5 for each connection made, which will be paid into a PayPal account.
3 head of online Ash Roots said: ‘We are looking to drive distribution and use of 3 PAYG Sims by giving people an easy way to earn money from us. We want to give them something back for recommending new customers to us.
‘There is nothing new in giving away free cards as Sim-only is a growing section of the PAYG market. But 3 Free Agents is the first UK initiative available that rewards customers with cold hard cash for promoting and distributing Sims using the internet.’
