E-Commerce Referral Program Benefits
Amplify your marketing
Entice your customers to multiply your marketing by referring clients. Every customer you convert should be adding momentum to your growth by sharing on social media, chat apps and email.
Referrals Convert better
Referred customers convert 3x better, spend more and refer others. This makes referral marketing as the best acquisition channel. You simply can't afford to let acquired customers sit there, not referring others.
Ads are unwanted, difficult to target and personlize and blocked by AdBlocker+. Your clients know who will need what you are selling. Let them do personalized outreach on your behalf. Reward them for referring others.
Create a sense of community
Provide your customers with a platform where they can share your brand. This builds trust and rapport increasing brand awareness creating a sense of belonging. Such community feeling will propell repeat purchase and brand loyalty.
Get to know about influential customers who are already within reach. In most cases, referrers who stand out are potential future partners for promotions and launches.
LOWER COST OF ACQUISITION
Getting referred customers will not cost you any ad spend or commissions to affiliates. In most cases, referrers are only rewarded with discounts on future purchases if they get new customers to convert.
