  11. 11. Invite but don't SPAM ! ● Its great to have an awesome invitation tool that lets users send out Invitations to friends or even have the system send out completely hands free automated invites based on analysis. But that does not give you the right to SPAM ! ● Invitex includes inbuilt unsubscribe functionality which will let the Invitee Opt out of getting future invitations or reminders from your site ● Be Decent & Keep the Unsubscribe link intact in your Invitation emails. People always appreciate that ! ● The Admin also has control to Add people in the UnSubscribe list in the backend
  12. 12. Restrict sending Invitation to unsubscribed Emails ● Invitex filters out the Emails of the people who do not wish to receive any more invitation emails from the site during import process
  13. 13. Use Scarcity to go Viral When something is scarce, it generates a need. Everyone wants it ! Gmail used this strategy with great success when it launched. You couldn't get in & Invitations were really hard to get. Use Invitex to take your Joomla to take your app viral ! ● Optionally Lock down your site to be Invite Only ● Globally Limit number of Invitations people can send. Manually control invitation limits on a per user level. ● Restrict Invitations to a specific set of domains only if you run a closed site group ● Set Invitation Expiry to expire the Invite after X days.
  14. 14. Push/Reward your users to Invite Your current site users can be a great asset to help you promote your site. You should not force them of course, but a little nudge in the right direction, with a little bit of incentive can reap great rewards ! Invitex comes in built with tools for this ! ● Ability to Force Invitation During Registration (Can be skipped) ● Ability to Force Invitation on Login (Can be skipped) ● Reward Points for Sending Invites & successful conversions ● Reward Cash for Sending Invites & successful conversions
  15. 15.

  16. 16. Persistence Pays ● “Parth is waiting for you to Accept his Invitation to LinkedIn” Sounds Familiar ? Sometimes one Invitation is not enough. Setup Reminders to remind the User that your site exists & that someone has invited him. Send a reminder & personalize it too ! ● “ Parth, Ashwin, Vaishali & Aniket are waiting for you on Linkedin” More the Merrier ! Use Invitex's People who have Invited you feature to show the user people who have invited him in the past.
