Brought to you by Botanical
Referral marketing is one of the most potent forms of organic growth. People are four times more likely to purchase a product when referred by a friend. In this blueprint, we'll outline a strategy to set up a successful referral program that turns your loyal customers into brand advocates.

Key Elements of a Referral Program:

Incentive Structure: Determine the rewards for both the referrer and the referred.
Clear CTA: Make it easy for customers to understand and participate.
Tracking Mechanism: Monitor the success rate of referrals.
Promotion: Ensure your referral program is visible and top-of-mind for customers.

Step-by-Step Guide to Building Your Referral Program:

Determine the Incentive:
Decide on what the referrer and the referred will receive (e.g., discounts, free products, cash back).

Example: "Refer a friend and you both get $10 off!"
