  • So here’s where the strategy starts – Mint.com was sure that offering their customers a free ipod for driving 3 new subscriptions to mint.com would be the big winner. But figured it best to test so they also offered nothing – basically a you love us so your friends will love us – tell them about us message. As well as an offer for access to an exclusive beta offering if three friends signed up. They launched the three offers to a percent of the target audience to determine what offer they would ultimately go to market with – all the while prepared to move forward with the iPods – and much to their surprise, the iPod was not the winner. Exclusive access to beta content? Won hands down.
