What is a referral program? How much do referral links pay? This referral user guide will explain how to access and utilize your new referral links, optimizing how you make extra money on the side as a healthcare professional.
We offer to M3 Panel Members numerous ways of making extra money online while working as full-time healthcare professionals. On top of paid market research studies, paid online surveys and our exclusive M3 Ambassador program, we also offer different types of referral programs. Every referral program has a different setup and sometimes includes multiple referral links with a different amount of money you can make, depending on the program.
The different variables in these paid referral programs can sometimes be confusing, which may prevent you from using your referral opportunities in the best way to make extra money. Therefore, M3 Global Research created a new tool for our M3 Members to make it easier and faster to keep track of every paid referral opportunity and their connected referral links.
To help you maximize extra income as a healthcare professional, we have now gathered all your paid referral opportunities and referral links in one single place, allowing you to easily compare and share the ones that suit you the best.
Check out this new tool by logging into your M3 account and looking for your “Referral Opportunities” dashboard in the dropdown menu labelled “MORE”. Follow the member user guide below.

Things You Need to Know Before Making Money With Referral Links
What is a referral program?
For someone who´s already using a product or a service from a company they genuinely believe in and benefit from themselves, this is a great way to make extra money. Amazingly, you earn money by giving your honest opinion about something you already enjoy and believe in. So why not spread the word to people you care about so that they too can benefit, while making extra money? Everybody wins.
The tricky part is finding the perfect match and the best referral programs to make money. You´ll need to find a company that you want to recommend and can provide you with a fair compensation and the right tools to make the process of referring and getting paid simple and convenient.
One of the most common ways to make money in a referral program is through paid referral links.
What is a referral link?
The company you work with will provide you with one or more referral links that are custom-made just for you. This way, every time someone clicks on your referral link and takes the desired action (whether that is to sign up, purchase or share something) the company can track how many of your connections who clicked/ took action and pay you according to the agreed terms and conditions in that referral program.
How you get paid depends on the company and what was agreed upon. As an M3 Global Research member, you´ll get paid through your M3 Wallet, providing you with quick, convenient and flexible payment methods.

M3 Member User Guide on How to Make Money with Referral Links
After clarifying what referral programs and referral links are and how it works, we can jump into the M3 user guide on how the new Referral Opportunity Dashboard tool works and what the benefits are.
The New Referral Opportunity Dashboard – How does it work?
In the Referral Opportunity Dashboard, you will find a list of available referral opportunities. Each opportunity will provide information about what you need to do, how much you can earn when you´ll get paid, and the referral links that you easily can copy and send to your connections.
Keep in mind that there might be more than one referral link in one referral opportunity. You will also find additional information about what your connections need to do to complete the desired action for you to get compensated.
5 steps to start referring with the new Referral Opportunity Dashboard
Please note that there might be times when there are no referral opportunities listed on your Referral Opportunity Dashboard. Don´t worry! The dashboard is regularly updated depending on M3´s market research needs and campaign seasonality. Keep an eye out for your study invitation emails.
Our M3 Digest Emails will let you know when you have a referral opportunity waiting for you. Just click the information block to go directly to your referral opportunity dashboard.
What are the benefits of referring colleagues and recommend them to participate in paid market research studies with M3 Global Research?
M3 studies are a gateway for healthcare professionals to share their expertise and opinions about new treatments and healthcare products/ services. The insights that are gathered from the study results serve as the basis for life science organizations to make informed decisions about how to develop and improve their products and services for patients.
Meanwhile, healthcare professionals who participate in M3 studies gain new knowledge about developments and trends in their medical fields and are well compensated for their time.
