Ok, so as any other Monzonaut, I might have shared love a bit too much in my workplace. I’ve heard ‘are you on comission’ quite few times… Anyway!
I explained Monzo to guy (A) that give me lifts to works. He travels a bit, so he was immediately interested, but I probably overmarketed, he didn’t sign up immediately.
I explained Monzo to one guy (B) that I meet regularly during breaks in company’s fag zone. He was interested, but didn’t sign up. Day later, he (B) told me that other guy © started spamming Monzo benefits to him during lunch break! B thought it’s suspicious that he was approached about Monzo by 2 people (me and C) in a span of 24h. I didn’t even know that other guy was using Monzo…
Anyway, few days later, guy that gives me lifts (A), told me that he got golden ticket from yet another guy (D), so he signed up. I was like ‘whoooa, D is also on Monzo?!’.
I shared Monzo love with a bunch of other people too, but waiting for their feedback and how the story unfolds.
My flatmate has Monzo too now (@alexs if you ever wonder where your QR code golden ticket went, now you know! We tested this, it worked! ).
We have also lovely sandwich lady, Sue, coming in every day. Sometimes people won’t buy sandwiches from her, because they have no cash in wallet. Solution, Sue got golden ticket from guy D, she’s waiting for her card now. She will get Monzo payments from me, few other people who turned out to be miraculously using Monzo already, and potentially monzo.me/ payments from other people.
Sue is - I think - over 40 years old (I dare not to offend her!), but she got on board really quickly. Another proof that age has nothing to do with Monzo being liked or not. We told her about Monzo + guy D gave her ticket on Friday (we have Monday today). She said that probably all would be set on Wednesday…
Now, for a company that has 100ish employees at the premises, that seems like amazing percentage of Monzo users. We have quite low average age, I’d say we don’t go over avg 35 years old.
I’ll keep you guys updated on this fantastic ‘infect people with Monzo’ soap opera.
