When I first joined RewardStream, I admit I was little confused about how automated referral programs worked. I didn’t quite understand what it meant to automate a process that humans do naturally. I’d seen referral programs run in the past, and it seemed pretty simple. Reach out to your customers, tell them you’ll reward them when they refer their friends, and wait for those friends to show up and make a purchase. It seemed like a pretty organic process, based on the natural relationship between people.Throughout the course of our daily lives, we are constantly referring our friends and families, and being referred by them: from products and services to ideas and experiences. It’s a commendable human trait, to share our positive (and negative) experiences with the people closest to us. In fact, when I sit back and think about it, I realize I am constantly benefitting from the knowledge that my peers and loved ones share with me.All Trust is Made Equal; Some is More Equal Than OthersIt’s probably fair to say there’s a certain domain of trustworthiness when it comes to providing accurate and pragmatic advice.

As the votes were tallied, Senator David Perdue, the Republican incumbent, was on the cusp of falling below 50 percent, which would trigger a runoff in January.- Advertisement – Georgia already faces a runoff for its other Senate seat, now held by a Republican, Kelly Loeffler. If Democrats were to win both, and Mr. Biden prevails in the presidential race, the Democrats could capture control of the Senate, with a bare margin of 50 seats, and the vice president casting a tie-breaking vote.With Mr. Trump’s political path growing more precarious, his team turned to the courts, filing lawsuits and demanding a recount in Wisconsin.The Trump campaign’s bid to stave off defeat stretched from the Supreme Court, where the campaign intervened in a case challenging Pennsylvania’s plan to count ballots received for up to three days after Election Day, to individual counties where the campaign showed a willingness to fight over even the smallest batch of votes.- Advertisement – The political tensions started to spill into the streets, with protests in Minneapolis, Seattle, Phoenix, Philadelphia, New York City and Portland, Ore.While mostly peaceful, with chants demanding that every vote be counted, store windows were shattered in Portland as some protesters grappled with the police.
