The premise of the Paubox referral program simple and powerful: Refer a friend to Paubox Email Suite and you both earn a $250 credit.
Your friend will receive a 14 day trial and upon successful completion of the trial, you each will receive a $250 credit.
As an added bonus, there are no limits to how many customers you can refer and how much referral credit you can earn.
This post will explain how you can supercharge the Paubox referral program by leveraging the Paubox email footer.

Every email encrypted by Paubox features a footer at the bottom that showcases the sender’s commitment to securing the email during transit across the internet.
