Lyft referrals

Are you wanting to increase your Lyft income by referring new passengers? If so, we have a few good ideas for you.

As you may or may not know, Lyft will give you $10 for every new referral you send their way. And a cool $100 for every (Chicago) driver you refer. That’s a very good amount of coin for simply spreading the word about an awesome new! company. Right?

Right on. So let’s take a look at three ways you can earn some additional cash by referring new passengers to Lyft.

1. Sporting Events –

Chicago is a SPORTS TOWN which makes it a blessing for you. You can pick which sporting event to attend or which sport arena to visit to promote your Lyft code. Are you a baseball fan – then you have the option of either the Chicago Cubs or the Chicago White Sox. Each one has an awesome park with (tons of fans) who could very well use a ride to and from the game. This is perhaps one of the best ways to get the word out about your Lyft partnership. Also keep in mind the season, in the Summer; is when you would best be able take advantage of Cubbies fever and or Sox fever. In the Winter, we have the Chicago Bears (football) the Chicago Bulls basketball and of course, the Chicago Blackhawks (hockey). We have other teams as well, but these are the most popular and most trafficked. Try this idea and see your Lyft referral income skyrocket.

2. College Papers –

College students love to try the latest and greatest tech and Lyft is definitely HOT right now, not only as a ride share service but as an innovative tech company. So why not introduce students near you to all that Lyft is by offering them a FREE ride. Share with them your unique promo code and let them know how easy Lyft works.

3. Local Laundromats –

You’ve seen them, those huge “worlds largest laundromats” popping up all over the city. I know I’ve seen them. They’re usually jam packed with people, especially nights (and weekends). I went to a local laundromat a month or so ago during the day (like on a Tuesday at 11 am) and it was packed to the brim with people. Packed. No! I didn’t have any promo cards with me, because if I did – you can rest assured everyone in that place would have gotten a card of mine. But you can try this. Find the large laundromats in your local area and then stand outside or do your laundry and just talk to people. Ask them if they’ve heard of Lyft? If they need a ride to their house? If they want to give Lyft a try, etc. Just talk to people and take it from there.

These are three simple (and local) ideas you can try this week, today – like now! to refer new passengers to Lyft and earn yourself a sweet $10 per peep.

If you try any of these – please come back here and let me know how it went. 🙂
