Referral link examples

The moment you become a member, your username will be part of your unique referral code, for example: /&ref=username. To create your unique referral link, simply add it to the end of the ultrashock.com url(s) you would like to share. See example below:

  • http://www.ultrashock.com/&ref=username

You can add this code to any Ultrashock page you want to link up, including your own profile page, any forum topic, asset detail, our blog, etc:

  • http://www.ultrashock.com/{username}/&ref=username
  • http://www.ultrashock.com/community/&ref=username
  • http://www.ultrashock.com/blog/&ref=username
  • http://www.ultrashock.com/forum/&ref=username
  • http://www.ultrashock.com/assets/&ref=username
  • http://www.ultrashock.com/asset/flash/12204/shock-effect.html/&ref=username


Banners, logos, and tips

There are many techniques to increase your referral income.
Here are just a few tips to attract new visitors through your referral link: 

  • Increase the visibility of your referral link by placing one of our banners or logo on your website. Banners can be very beneficial if they are clearly visible, by placing them above the fold and when they don't get distracted by many other banners. 
  • Use text ads instead of banners.  Google can do it successfully, so can you!  You could use the following copy: "Are you looking for amazing Flash, Audio, Image & Vector stock, powered by a great community?  Visit Ultrashock today!", and add your referral link to it.  You can even put text ads in your email signature.
  • Feature Ultrashock items on your own website or the social websites you are a member of.  Think about a status update on Facebook, or a Twitter 'tweet'.  You might mention items like this: "I found a cool Flash gallery today: http://your-referral-link".
  • Promote Ultrashock on your blog, or make comments to other blogs you visit. Write about the Ultrashock marketplace and premium stock files we offer in other forums, and include your referral link.
  • If you contribute regularly to other forums, place your referral link in forum signatures.
