3 Easy Steps For Signing Up Businesses
Step 1: Make a List

Example Business Invitation
Hi First Name,
I’m a big fan and customer of BUSINESS NAME. I wanted to tell you about a new service called Drum that allows any business to acquire customers through an on-demand sales force. The service is free to use, and you only pay for earned customers.
Here is how it works.
- You create a business profile. It only takes less than 5 minutes.
- You publish an offer (savings, loyalty, or customer referral offer)
- Once you publish that offer, the community of promoters (called Drummers) begins promoting your offer and sending you customers.
- When a customer arrives with your offer, you record the redemption and the drummer earns their commission.
It is risk-free and super easy to try out. Here is a link to create your free business profile. I’m happy to chat through any questions you might have!
