There is already a map in the Phoenix HQ with pins for where the owner live. There is already a $500 reward for referring someone to Phoenix when they buy a unit. At least there was when we bought our PC. You might want to call Stuart about this whole thing. I showed our PC to SA Johnson when he was looking and asking a lot of question on here. All of a sudden he disappeared from this forum. I don't know what he ended up doing. I even sent him a private message and never heard from him. I would still be willing to show my PC again.
I don't believe there was ever an "active" gift-referral program over the past 5 years as I have never recieved a gift of any kind from Phoenix-USA, and I have done a lot of referral-became-a-sale for them.Aimee's "Where Are There PC's To See" interactive map sounds cool. But I wouldn't mind some much simpler. Place a eye catching "Look" symbol by our name that when clicked on, will state we live in zip code 00000 and are willing to show our PC to interested parties. We could control this in our profile. Make it fancier by adding a place for us owners to add a link to web pics, so the person would know what he will see during his visit. Click on the zip code to be sent to the web for a map or description of where it is. Maybe a protective filter of some kind would be a good idea.
Aimee,I like your idea and would be interested in participating. We live in Northern California and I remember how hard it was to actually see a PC. At the time there was a dealer in Phoenix and we went there, it would have been nice to see one closer to home and talk to an owner.I especially like your idea to be able to indicate where we will be when on the road, we live in a remote area not convenient for someone to visit, but we are on the road at least 4 months a year. That might also be a fun way to meet up with other PC owners on the road, just see who is in the area at the time.Bob A.
Ron: I don't believe there was ever an "active" gift-referral program over the past 5 years as I have never recieved a gift of any kind from Phoenix-USA, and I have done a lot of referral-became-a-sale for them.Aimee: For the referral program, either you need to actively tell them before the client comes in and purchases, or the buyer needs to tell them specifically "I am referred by Ron Dittmer" For them to say "oh I saw a unit while we were camping and I loved it!" is not enough.
We told her that it was Ron's referral, so hope that he benefits for having to spend all that time with us on the Grand Tour. His online pictures helped, but the actual hands on visit to his unit was what made us sure.
