Really terrific! Very excited about the referral program being implemented. Now I shall really get busy!!!

Great work  @Narrative Network Team ! 

One tiny tiny suggestion...on the front landing page you may want to consider adding the moderators make 6% and content contributors earn 60 % pro rata like you did the niche ownership. I am making posts to complete newbies and a few already signed up. it would be helpful if the financial incentives were front and centre.

My bad...I didn't read about the referral channel bit...next ones i will direct correctly. :-)

 

Some feedback on the post

https://blog.narrative.network...e-alpha-e5aa67c52bc6 )

"niches are communal posting areas that create unified, relevant content streams on unique topics."

Is it just me or does this description of niches seem overly wordy and convoluted?  I should know - I have to constantly watch myself for the same sin.

Suggested replacement: "A niche is a home for content of a specific topic". 

I think it would pay to be as simple and direct as possible in describing this core concept of Narrative.  I don't dislike the sentence used, but it is more suited to a second, more detailed explanation of what a niche is than it is a summary, that everyone should be able to intuitively grasp at a glance.

 

 

As did @Emily Barnett, I started sending the sign up link to people before I dug deeper and read that referrals work via a personal referral link.

It would really be helpful to inform folks of this in the original post in this thread.

It could also be mentioned in:

https://blog.narrative.network...e-alpha-e5aa67c52bc6

Instead, right now, the above article has a link in it to learn more about referrals, and only after following that link is it revealed that there is such a thing as a personal referral link.  Why bury it that extra level deep?

Thanks @Narrative Network Team, for preparing this exciting next step.  I'll keep my eye out for any other optimisations that occur to me, but stoked about the forward movement.

Thanks for the feedback, will definitely look at making more prominent so there is no confusion!

Great points, as always! Thank you

@MichelleG & @Malkazoid: can you provide more details about this placeholder image please? Where are you seeing it? In an email? A web page? If web page, what’s the URL? Do you have a screenshot you can provide? Thanks!

Hey Brian,

It's on Facebook.  I'm malkazoid on FB - friend me there and check out my feed and you'll see it!

 

Thanks for broadening the audience for the alpha!

I registered my spot, but I don't seem to get a confirmation email even though a 2nd try stated that my email address had successfully been entered into the system. Is this because I had already subscribed my email to the newsletter?

Hi. On the referral link that we are given, there is no info about Narrative. nothing...many of the people I am sending this too are completely unfamiliar with the platform but are bloggers, writers etc. this seems pretty cryptic...no sort of pun intended...well maybe a little.

Can you at least add a link so to the main site so people can find out more about the project. This first impression may not be appealing.Screen Shot 2018-06-21 at 4.09.04 PM

I just sent five of my contacts an invitation from the referral tool on the alpha... I was expecting to be able to add my own message to the invitation, but it just sent without my ability to preface the invite. 

On the Community Profile > Invitations tab, there IS a way to add a message, but no way to see the referral link...

If I can invite people from both the community and the alpha, I should also be able to see the link AND add my own message to the invitation to provide some more context. 

Thanks!

Hi Bryan! You are correct in the fact that there is not currently an email preview available in the Alpha referral program nor the ability to edit. 

Separately, the Narrative Community is not part of the referral program at this time. Hope that helps clarify!
