How do Advocates sign up?

Signing up Advocates - There are several different ways advocates can sign up in which you are in control of. They will primarily be signed up by sales reps, but with a multi-level reward payout, you are incentivizing your advocates to also sign up other advocates. Different ways to sign up advocates

  1. Telling someone to search your Company’s App name in the app store/google play and having them download link
  2. Sharing app links (this can be accomplished with a QR code, landing page on your website, or an email)
  3. WebApp - accounts can be created from the web version of your app if you have it on your website
  4. Advocates can invite other people to sign up from your app in a tab called ‘Invite Advocates’ - advocates that sign up this way become a ‘downline member’ of the advocate who sent them the registration form
    1. This feature is available through the Affiliate Program (i.e. Pros as an Add-on, Premium, or Custom Package)
