ReferralCodes Partnership

The Leading Word-of-Mouth Channel to Drive ROI

Partner with ReferralCodes to Control & Boost Referral Performance. Word-of-Mouth is the most powerful force in marketing! It helps to lower acquisition costs (CAC), boost order values (AOV) & customer life-time value (LTV), as well as enhancing brand trust and retention.

HOWEVER! Most referral schemes disappoint because of 1) Very high sharing friction by the original customer and 2) The unlikely coincidence that a referred friend wants to buy at that particular moment.

In fact, many schemes pester their customers to spam their friends... and noone wants to be "that friend"! With over 500,000 active refer-a-friend schemes, it’s just too much to expect customers to repeatedly do this, even for brands they're fans of. Valuable & trusted customer endorsements can therefore go to waste... less than 2% of sales come from referrals!

ReferralCodes unique platform solves these problems. By integrating ReferralCodes into your marketing 'stack', we help consumers efficiently advocate for you, both immediately and over-time. We simplify sharing and provide a clear channel for personal endorsement… similar to reviews but for referrals! ReferralCodes has grown rapidly to become the leading referral distribution channel for US, UK & Australasian merchants, with a community of 4 million supporting over 5,000 brands.

How can your business benefit?

Social Endorsement

Boost Referral Performance

ReferralCodes is the referral distribution channel of choice for innovative marketeers. By helping shoppers share and find referrals, via web, mobile and browser extension all types of referral activity are amplified. Via ReferralCodes, your customers' trusted voices can actually reach others, with referral recommendations appearing on each member's page, as well as the store's profile. "Social proof" and rewards reduce friction and wastage at all stages of the funnel; shoppers can share effectively and others can find personal referrals & recommendations in one place. Referral ‘distribution’ is therefore optimised.

See these real examples... Savvy shopper Becca is recommending multiple stores including Poshmark, Venmo & Discover Card. Finance-smart David is making referrals for brands such as Hopper, Klarna & Money Lion. Referral fanatic Jessica has referrals for over 2,000 stores and super-connector Stanley has over 600 direct followers in his referral network.

These engaged ‘late-funnel’ shoppers & advocates can turbo-charge your referral throughput in a staggering way: outbound conversion rates from ReferralCodes approach 25% (see Success Stories below).

Acquisition Flex

Brand Enhancement & Referral Control

Social endorsements from customer referrals lead to higher engagement; indeed, some 92% of consumers trust personal endorsements, the very highest of any marketing channel.

With an optimised and validated referral profile at ReferralCodes, your brand can benefit from the halo effect of elevated trust. Potential shoppers exhibit higher conversion rates and existing customers have a conduit through which to voice support. Furthermore, many brands now leverage referrals for retention.

Control, of course, is paramount: brand messaging, campaign narratives, images and other information can be added to your referral profile. Overall, by smoothing the referral sharing process with ReferralCodes, you can drive on-going social virality in a controlled & brand-aligned way.

ReferralCodes’ unique social commerce channel – including the popular browser extension installed by 1,000s of shoppers – lets your customers directly benefit from referral rewards by meaningfully reducing ‘friction’. Loyalty UP and churn DOWN. ReferralCodes helps deliver on the promise of referral schemes. Make it easy for your customers to fulfil your business goals!

Partner FAQs

Want to learn more? Below are some common partner questions.

Once activity limits are lifted, ReferralCodes’ partners have reported immediate and enduring results: i) Increases in advocates sharing at ReferralCodes, up to 10x in a 6 month period ii) Increases in new outbound conversions, ranging from 3-10x more than non-partner status and iii) Increased loyalty and reduced churn amongst shoppers.

Performance is exceptional when distribution is firing on all cylinders. In fact, some partners have seen 25% increase in ALL referral conversions after working with us. Brands that have normal LTVs the ROI is therefore exceptional. For a modest outlay your brand can massively up its ‘referral game’, completing the missing part of the referral loop. Contact us below to find out more, including further benefits from category sponsorships.

Brands have full control on how their profile page is used. Some brands wish to control where referrals are displayed (for example only on users’ personal pages) but most understand that broader sharing have overwhelming benefits. What constitutes a friend in the age of social media is increasingly blurred and careful structuring of a referral scheme (e.g. limiting the number of referral rewards per person or making rewards contingent on certain milestones) is the best way to ensure quality sign-ups.
So brands can share where their customers' referrals appear in addition to the messages and values on the main referral profile, including, for example, review scores, more details on the schemes & time-based rewards.
ReferralCodes will share with you all activity generated from both your profile and by your advocates on a monthly basis, including analytics such as new advocates, clicks and estimated conversions. For Enterprise partners we have included explicit tracking of all activity by adding tagging. However, most brands wish to monitor the number of ‘advocates’ and outbound clicks on referral links and codes.

Personal referrals and recommendations have the very best ROI in marketing - with only a monthly commitment you can test the ReferralCodes amplification engine and find out for yourselves!

ReferralCodes is a trusted and sophisticated advocacy channel providing both immediate and long-term benefits for your brand. We are not a basic "publisher". Helping your customers advocate for your brand is a core component of ‘word-of-mouth’ marketing. ReferralCodes does exactly this. Similar to reviews, referrals and recommendations benefit your brand over an extended period of time.

Referrals also operate at multiple ‘touch-points’ of the purchasing funnel, including raising awareness of your brand, building a trusted endorsement link between existing customers and potential shoppers as well as improving conversion at the check-out basket, reducing abandonments.

All dressed up and nowhere to go? It’s tempting to set-up a referral scheme, either through third party providers or in-house, send a few comms emails to customers and leave it at that. So ‘fire and forget’. However, this usually means ‘fire and fail’. In fact, most referral schemes return disappointing results. This is because the critical part of the referral conversion loop is missing: customers aren’t able to share consistently or methodically.
ReferralCodes is the missing part of the jig-saw; a referral scheme is bit like building a beautiful car that has nowhere to go. ReferralCodes opens up the highways! A free profile on ReferralCodes is a good start, but all the action goes to our partners so contact us below to find out more and let your referral scheme breathe!
