SaaS Referral Marketing Benefits

Amplify your marketing

Leverage your SaaS users by enabling them to spread the word about your SaaS and add momentum to your SaaS growth. Don't let SaaS users sit there and use your SaaS. Engage them to share and refer others to sign-up.

Referrals Convert better

Referred SaaS sign-ups, convert better, churn less, spend more in their customer lifetime and tend to refer others. You simply don't afford to not have a SaaS referral program at the centre of your marketing efforts.

Extend your reach

Software like AdBlocker+ and SPAM filters make it difficult to get your ads and message across. However, it won't block any personal recommendations and referrals over chat apps, social media or email invites.

Create a sense of community

Complement your SaaS experience with a community feeling by providing a way for your SaaS users to promote you. This will create a sense of belonging that will improve trust and rapport within your audience.


Identify power users, top fans and potential future partners who distinct themselves in your referral program by referring several sign-ups to your SaaS.


Cost of Acquisition is a crucial metric for any SaaS. Referred users will not add to your ad spend bill or cost you anything in commissions to affiliates.
