ReferralCandy automatically tracks email and social media sharing and gives detailed analytics about your campaign at both the campaign and advocate level. You can access these analytics from your Stats & Overview page.
Campaign level analytics
At the campaign level, you can get an overview of how your referral program is performing. A sample of the My Stats page and definitions of terms used are shown below.
Referral emails sent (Unique) - The number of referral emails sent to advocates in your campaign during the time period. If 2 referral emails are sent to the same email address, this is counted as 2 referral emails sent. This includes all referral emails sent to advocates (post-purchase referral emails, referral emails sent via the Email Past Customers tool, reminder emails, or when your customers' signup up via your portal join page).
Referral email views (Not Unique) - The number of times that referral emails were viewed during the time period. If someone views a referral email twice, this is counted as 2 referral email views. If an advocate views the referral email and forwards it to 5 friends who view the forwarded email, this counts as 6 views.
Facebook shares (Not Unique) - The number of Facebook shares by advocates during the time period. An advocate sharing on Facebook twice during the time period will be counted as 2 Facebook shares.
Twitter shares (Not Unique) - The number of Twitter shares by advocates during the time period. An advocate sharing on Twitter twice during the time period will be counted as 2 Twitter shares.

Website visits (Not Unique) - The number of unique persons that go on to your store after clicking the referral link (either by clicking the button on the friend landing page or by getting redirected automatically). A person going on to your store two times will count as 1 website visit.
