The WordPress.com Referral Program: Encourage Others to Start a Website

All of us know interesting people with unique talents. Some have business ideas. Others write beautiful poetry. Some are inspired to make the world a better place. 

If they’re not online, they should be. If you’ve ever encouraged a friend or family member to create a blog, launch a podcast, or sell what they make online, the WordPress.com Refer-a-Friend program is your chance to help them get started.

How the referral program works

With the Refer-a-Friend program, you and people in your network can earn credits for your WordPress.com websites. When you invite friends, family, and colleagues — or even your own site visitors — to build a website, they’ll receive a US$25 credit toward a WordPress.com plan. (Note: referrals need to be new WordPress.com customers.)

Every time someone you refer purchases a plan, you receive a US$25 credit, too! The credit will be applied within two months after your referral signs up and makes an eligible purchase.

Under current pricing, a $25 credit offers more than 50% off the first year of a Personal plan and more than 25% off the cost of a Premium plan. Plus, your referrals also receive a free custom domain name for their first year.

Here’s how to start:

  1. Log in to your WordPress.com account and go to Tools → Earn.
  2. Locate your unique referral link in the Refer-a-Friend section.
  3. Copy the link and share it via email, social media, or text message.

Not sure what to say? When reaching out to a referral, tell them why you use WordPress.com and how you believe it will help them, too.
