FaceContact goes live with referral tracker

FaceContact, a new UK startup which has a tool to track and reward referrals for job candidates, clients, investors and just about any other defined “prospect”, has gone live with its public beta site.

It’s incredibly complicated to track where an original referral came from. FaceContact is set up to try and crack this problem, and incentivise people to make referrals. It turns out it’s pretty simple to do this: just offer money! So long as everyone trusts the tracking system, in theory everyone wins.

FaceContact allows you to offer a cash reward to your contacts or anyone else who makes a successful referral that results in your making a new engagement. This could mean finding a new employee, service provider, client, investor, or anyone else. Even funding for a startup.
You can automatically upload your contacts from almost any address book (Outlook, LinkedIn, webmail, Gmail, Yahoo, CSV files etc) then invite contacts. You use the dashboard to select the most interesting proposals. FaceContact updates prospects and referrals on the status of their applications, proposals, and inquiries . You can also publish your engagement announcements on the FaceContact board for free. It’s also possible to control the number of degrees of separation you want to use.

FaceContact was one of the finalist of the Seedcamp competition for EU startups organised by Index Ventures, Benchmark Capital, Atomico, DFJ Esprit, 3i, The Accelerator Group, Atlas Ventures, Partech International, Accel Partners, Highland Capital Partners, Wellington Partners and Advent Ventures.

    Here’s an idea for Facetracker:

    – put an explanation of what it is on the home page
    – put some help on the home page
    – put more than your Seedcamp presentation on your Help page
    Blimey, I like the idea of this but I have absolutely no idea how it works, how I use it, what it does
    I like the idea of using it to incentivise my network to bring me clients, but can I do that?
    What’s an Engagement (do I end up married)
    etc

    I like the sound of facecontact.com. It could be a way of getting quality candidates for vacancies. Also it’s a way of attracting “passive” jobseekers. Someone may not be actively looking for a job but a friend thinks they are right and refers them. Then maybe they become interested?

    However aren’t they aiming at to many things – investors, job applicants, leads. They should have maybe focused on one thing.

    Btw check out this blog I came across on stumbleupon. Interesting way of getting passive jobseekers. Make a community with a niche blog.
