Referrals are really hard to gain.
This program is really hard to gain referrals for, because everyone thinks its a keylogger, haha.

I need some ideas on how to gain referrals. Im usually good at gaining atleast 100 odd people, but this one is a bloody nightmare.

Out of my three best computing friends i only got one of them to sign up, the other two thought it was a Dodge keylogger program. Same with few Websites i have posted on about it.

God. My parents and a few friends thought it was a keylogging programme. It's only because I develop it now that they actually believe otherwise...

People are so naive and paranoid. Sad

Haha, pretty funny hearing that from BobL I must admit. Ah well, makes me feel a bit better knowing im not the only one.

I will still try and get referrals, but I will never be able to get as many as I should get. I will try real life people a lot more. Easier to convince people who I know in real life, and also they are all from the UK, which means I am helping the UK beat the barstards from Poland who are in our 4th position in the high scores Tongue

I have recruited my Mother and Father (and my cousin, once he gets online) in my years here.

And not for lack of trying.

It's hard to recruit for WhatPulse, because even once people realize that it's not a keylogger, I get responses like, "That's geeky as hell" or "why the fuck should I care?"

I'm glad that WhatPulse fosters a community that values statistics like these, though.

Ah I love it. Ive always been a stats whore and when I found this project I don't think I slept that night. Just wish I had some ways of bringing more people with the same respect for the project into the community.
