What is a "refer a friend"?

Refer a friend is an awesome way of rewarding you and your friend for introducing someone to Smart Tribe. It’s easy, too – just use your unique referral link to send it in an email, message, slack, pigeon… whatever works. You can use the same referral code with as many friends as you like – we will know it is you who spreads to love! 

When 2 of your friends (who signed up using your unique referral code) successfully creates their profile with Smart Tribe and activates their free premium account, you’ll be able to activate your free Premium Services.
