Tips 2

Now that you know all you need to know about RAF, let’s jump into the fun stuff. Here are some tips to help you earn more referrals.

Leverage social media platforms

There are various social media platforms you can leverage to share your referral code, such as X, Instagram, Facebook, or TikTok. Choose the most suitable platform – such as the one with the highest followers – to maximise your reach and get the best results. Instead of spamming your feed with your referral code, create engaging posts or stories that highlight the convenience of Setel. Let your social network know how Setel can make their lives easier and brighter. Make sure your referral code is present in each post as that will create a subconscious memory for your followers.

Here’s a great example of someone sharing their referral code through TikTok!

Demonstrate Setel’s convenience

Actions speak louder than words. If you want others to use Setel, you have to enthusiastically use it first. Exhibit the convenience of Setel during fuelling, parking, shopping, or when you’re facing any vehicle trouble. For example, when you’re at a PETRONAS station, take the opportunity to showcase Setel’s convenience to your social circle. Demonstrate how you can pay and activate the fuel pump from your vehicle (all without queueing at the counter!). Alternatively, when you’re out shopping, just whip out your phone to scan and pay. It’s cashless all the way!

Witnessing the app in action can have a powerful impact and will go a long way in encouraging your social circle to join Setel. If they show their eagerness to join Setel, this will be the perfect time for you to conveniently send an invite from the Setel app.

Refer during ongoing promotions

Don’t limit sharing your referral code to just any time. Take advantage of other ongoing promotions or campaigns by Setel. Highlight the additional rewards or benefits that can be enjoyed by your social circle to further entice them to register using your referral code. For example, they can get 3% cashback when they spend on selected features in the Setel app (Valid until 31 December 2023. Terms and conditions apply.).

Other than that, they will also get rewarded when they shop for groceries, food and drinks, as well as other daily needs. Other than that, they will also get rewarded when they shop for groceries, food and drinks, as well as other daily needs. 10% cashback is theirs when they shop at selected merchants (Valid until 12 January 2024. Terms and conditions apply.).

Merchants eligible for 10% cashback.

Getting referrals is not just about earning extra income; they’re a testament to your trust in Setel. By sharing your positive experience with your social circle, you’re helping them discover an app that can be their constant companion on the road. With Setel, you can do more than purchase fuel and earn Mesra points. Experience cashless convenience as you seamlessly pay for vehicle needs and daily necessities, all within a single app.

So share the convenience of Setel with your social circle. Start referring today.
