RS Components has introduced a referral programme that incentivises members of DesignSpark to introduce friends and colleagues to the engineering platform, which provides benefits including access to a global community of engineers, free MCAD and ECAD design software, CAD neutral libraries and a multitude of other resources. As the result of a referral, both the existing and the newly registered member is entered into a quarterly prize draw, with a chance to win a Fitbit tracker plus £500 of products stocked by RS.
Entry into the draw is automatic for anyone who registers for membership, adding the username of an existing member when prompted through the registration process. There are no limitations on the amount of referrals, which means the chances of winning are enhanced for multiple referrals by existing members. What’s more, following a successful registration, each new member then also qualifies to refer a friend or colleague through the programme. As a further bonus, the top referring member, who has the highest number of new members quoting their username each quarter, will win an exclusive DesignSpark goody bag.
Natalie Reigel, head of the DesignSpark Community at RS, said: "There’s strength in numbers, and the more members we have in our community, the wider our collective knowledge base and the faster we can support and advise one another. We want to grow our community – spreading the DesignSpark love far and wide – and continue to strengthen our suite of tools and assets for all of our members.”
The first draw will take place on Monday 13 January 2020, for all referrals made between 4 October 2019 and 12 January 2020.
