Sometimes, people who already know about Art Storefronts and who do not meet our definition of a "referral" happen to find you because of a testimonial you provided on our website or for some other reason. For the purpose of giving this situation a definition, we call this an "assist".
As "assist" means you are not responsible for originally generating the lead and/or do not meet our definition of a "referral" as mentioned above, but you helped the person learn more about Art Storefronts in some way. This happens on a daily basis and we greatly appreciate all the ways in which our community members are supporting us and working alongside us to make this a better and more fruitful ecosystem for everyone.
If you find that you are getting a decent amount of these every month, here's what you need to do: Make sure to tell the people to mention your name as someone they spoke to, as someone who helped them along. If the person mentions your name, we will track these as "assists" in our database. You do not need to provide them with a referral link in these situations, because they are not relevant.
After enough time, if we find that you generate enough "assists", we will consider adding you into our brand ambassador program, which is very limited and has different perks.
