Spreading the Spark!

Friday, January 04, 2013

There are a lot of people thinking about losing the weight and I actually see small steps in some of those people. So this week I have been trying to spread the Spark since it's being started in some people, they just need the help we have been lucky to find.

This week I handed out 2 Spark cards and posted on my facebook page the link to this site. I have had at least one person sign up this week from that promotion.

Did you know you get points for signing up if they add your name to the "referred by" spot or clicking on the link you provide? You get 10 points per person. This is not a big deal to me anymore, I'm not all about the points, I'm more about the fact that I'm lighter than I was a year ago, but the points are still fun.

The way that I get to the links is by going to "my spark points" ---> scroll all the way down to the "refer a friend" spot, click on "Tell a friend" ---> This brings you the the refer a friend page which has links you can put on other sites, send emails to people you think could use this help, add a link from your blog, print cards or fliers and even follow them on facebook and twitter. I find the badge thing for facebook doesn't really work anymore, since badges aren't a thing on facebook anymore, but you can still post your individual link by copying and pasting the link you get in the "get a link" section right into your feed.

Or just click here for a direct link:

I'm sure there's a different way to get to the refer a friend page, but I find this the easiest one for me. In the last year I've gotten 100 points, so someone is noticing what I did. It's somewhere in the "community" tab, but I have only figured out this site so well.

Hopefully you are spreading the Spark, and if you're not, you should be because this is a great community! That page will make it easier to spread the word!

    This does not always work. I've had friends join without doing the referred part.
