Prosper Referral Program — About Time | P2P Lending, Peer to Peer Lending, People to People Lending

Ok I admit it. I have whored out my blog via the Prosper referral program today. I was not paid to do so in anyway except hopefully in referrals. I felt that this step by Prosper is exactly what the marketplace needed to grow organically and virally. Therefore, I decide that today was a Prosper referral program Post-o-rama. Thank you Prosper!!!

In posting about Propser’s referral program today I have included copious referral links. In the future, I will continue to use Prosper referral links. This does not change what I am or what I am blogging about. To that end, this will be my last blatant post about the referral program. Any referral links from this point on will be within the boundaries of my blog and it’s intellectual integrity.

That being said what do you think of the 3 landing pages of the referral program.

To me they are a little blah, but they are simple and I have had one referral signup today. So maybe they aren’t all bad. Btw, here is the email you get when someone becomes a referee…
