How to invite the best eyebuddies
By Peter - 11 May 2011
To make the most of our buddy system and attain as much discount as possible, you need to register with us and send invitations to your friends. If your friends make purchases with us, your discounts and savings will increase. Further more, your future purchases will also affect your friend’s discounts and savings. For more information about how our buddy system works, please read here. eyebuddy have devised an interesting system where you have control of your discounts and savings when buying glasses online from us.
The big question is how do you invite the best eyebuddies? Not everyone you invite will register with us. Not everyone you invite will buy from us. Let’s be honest, most of the people who see the email invitation you sent will assume it is spam mail and delete without even reading it. Therefore we have come up with a couple of tips on how to invite the best eyebuddies to eyebuddy.
Tip #1 – Seek out potential buddies
Begin by drawing up a list of friends and family who wear glasses. They are people who are quite likely to purchase a new pair of prescription glasses in the future. Build on your list by adding friends or family who you have been on holiday with recently. Do you remember any of them wearing sunglasses or snow goggles? eyebuddy have a fantastic range of designer sunglasses that may appeal to them. Lastly, add any names of any contact lens wearers that you may know of. If you know someone who used to wear specs regularly but now no longer does, they may have changed to contacts. They may have had laser eye surgery or alternatives, but you can always ask to be sure.
Tip #2 – Talk to them
Now that you have a list of possible eyebuddies, you want to learn more about where they purchased their eyewear. Ask them where they bought their designer glasses, designer sunglasses or contact lenses. Find out what model their eyewear is (so you can search for it on the web). You can even ask if they remember or know how much they cost. If you have any friends or family going on holiday soon, you can tell them about eyebuddy’s range of sunglasses. If they’re interested, you can invite them and tell them to register through the email!
Tip #3 – Homework
Now you have the model, brand, and price and where they bought it from, you can compare the price they paid with our prices. Our default discount upon registering is just 15%, but with a little help from buddies you can reach 40%. For example, if you find a pair of frames that costs £100 without discount at eyebuddy, by registering you now pay £85. If all your buddies help you, you now pay £60. Does your homework show eyebuddy’s price to be cheaper? If yes, you can help us by spreading the word to your friends and family! Word of mouth can work wonders.
Tip #4 – Word of Mouth
If eyebuddy’s prices are indeed cheaper than its competitors, why not spread the word to your list of names? If your father tells you he got his wonderful glasses from his local opticians for £200 and you find the exact same frame could be bought from eyebuddy for £85, tell him! Everyone loves a bargain; everyone wants savings and plenty of it! Once they’re aware they could save a lot of money by buying glasses direct from eyebuddy, tell them you will send them an invitation by email and tell them to register through it.

Why don't you want free money?
By Peter - 16 December 2010
If I said, “I’ll give you £5 for free if
you read this to the end”, would you? How about if I added, “no strings
attached”? Still not convinced? You’re probably thinking it’s too good to be
true. For such a ludicrous offer, there has to be a catch somewhere. Is there
something that would benefit me, am I looking to gain something? Back to
reality please, we’re talking about you and the free fiver, not about me. If
you want something valuable, however, I insist you continue reading to the end.
I’m no story teller but let’s change the
idea and scenery. You’re walking alone along a busy street full of people you
don’t know. You’re just trying to mind your own business attempting to avoid eye
contact with strangers. All of a sudden, your eyes are transfixed on a person
wearing a white board with the words, 'ASK ME FOR £5 AND IT’S YOURS' written on
Would you ask? Yes? No? Back to reality,
it’s always easier to decide in this situation when you’re not actually faced
with it. I’m not talking about life and death situations. I’m talking free
money, getting a free fiver. How about we make this idea a reality? For those
of you relishing the opportunity of taking part in this experiment because you
want the fiver, my apologies. I’m no scientist but I can announce this
experiment was carried out in London during November 2010.
For 4 hours, a guy wearing a huge white
board advertising his offer of free money walked along a busy pedestrian street.
Giving meaning to, “does what it says on the tin”, he gave £5 to every person
who asked for it. Want to hazard a guess at the number of people who thought
outside the box and decided to ask?
Unfortunately I can’t reveal the answer to
you. No one really believes statistics anyway, so no one would believe 2,719
people walked past him without a word and only 16 people asked. Ideas and
excuses are probably churning up in your mind as you read this. “Maybe those
2,719 people don’t need the money?” or “they were just minding their own
business” are just 2 possible reasons you may have thought up along with
several more. One of the more plausible reasons would be that people distrust
the idea of getting something for nothing. I’m no psychologist but I enjoy
saying something controversial like that every now and then. Click here to view the video of the experiment.
To conclude, sometimes giving people free
money is simply too difficult. So I’ve decided to lend you my wisdom. In all
this doom and gloom, economic crisis and bad weather, if someone wants to give
you free money, please take it. It’s a hard ask, I know.
Many people advertise about their products
and deals, but they spend money to advertise. They increase the prices of their
products by a margin to recoup what they spent on advertising. In other words,
you pay for their advertising. At eyebuddy, however, we minimise advertising
expenditure and pass the savings onto you for your ‘word of mouth’. As a
result, the prices of our designer glasses and designer sunglasses are
consistently low. Best of all, with our eyebuddy revolution system, you just
continue to save, save and save. You save so much it’s almost the same as
giving you free money.
Hopefully you’ll have gained something from
reading this blog. If you have any comments, be sure to let me know as I’m no
mind reader. I’m just a writer.
