Alot of thought was put into this project and is still on going today. Im a owner of a browser based game. http://www.mafiaclassic.com/ what i have coded in is a referral system where it pays a player $1.50 per referral. there is vast differences thou to the existing referral system found in all mafia and pimp type browser games. My one is submitted within the actual game login. Other mafia and pimp games is done outside the game. This helps to stop a mass of fake profiles. Because it is built IN the game and not OUTSIDE , i then coded in a check user to make sure the new referrer is active. I then coded in a script to make sure a user can only be referred once and never again. the last and final value is manual , me actually checking it before approving. The thought that consistently arises is that i feel this approach may be much more effective then PTC services , google adwords and other forms of marketing and advertising on the internet which can be very costly and give very little results. To sum up the conclusion , its like $150 for 100 players , i personal feel is a better fee to pay , even in the event 50% leave and i gain 50% , thats still 50 new users. any thoughts about this ? your feedback would be highly appreciated and the game can be view here at http://www.mafiaclassic.com/"
