The most important first step to a successful referral program is to get as many people to know about your referral program as quickly as possible.
At the heart of it, referral programs are a simple numbers game. The more people that are actively participating in your referral program, the more likely you are to get referrals.
Here are 3 quick ways to get more people to join your referral program:
1. Feature your referral program prominently on your website and in your marketing material (e.g. newsletters etc.)
Every visitor to your website / every reader of your marketing collateral should learn about your referral program if they don't know about it already.
Pro Tip: use large featured images, eye-catching headlines, etc.
Visitors can signup for your referral program directly and refer friends even if they haven't bought from you before — they might know friends who are interested in purchasing from you.
2. Invite past / existing customers to your referral program via the Invite Customers feature
