How to Give Campaign Based Bonuses to your Advocates
At Genius Referrals you can give bonuses manually to the Advocates. This is useful when you want to:
  • Run an offline referral program.
  • Give a bonus to the advocates manually.
Bonuses in Genius Referral are ALWAYS awarded to an advocate. You should always look for a referral to give a bonus to the advocate.
To give a bonus to an advocate, search for the referral on the member section, and click on the 'Process for bonus' action located in the actions column.
The 'Process for bonus' action will be available only for referrals.
search an advocate for given a reward on your referral program

On the 'Process for bonus' form fill in the fields, and then click on the 'Give bonus' button.

The system will try to give a bonus to the advocate taking into account all the rules you've specified on your referral program campaign. The parameters to fill in are the following:

Reference: This can be anything, you can use a timestamp, a payment id, etc. This parameter is mandatory.

Payment Amount: Represents the amount of money that a referral has spent in your business. This is useful when you've set up your marketing campaign based on percentage. This parameter is optional, but if the campaign is based on the percentage you will have to send the payment amount in order to give a bonus to the advocate.
When a bonus is given to the advocate, you will see a 'success' on the response, otherwise, you will see a 'fail'. The 'Trace' section will give you insights.
