So What is a Referral Program Anyways?

A referral program is any systematic way that your company encourages people to tell other people about your product or service.

How does this help my during my campaign?

Everyone knows that when running a crowdfunding campaign the most important thing is EXPOSURE! You need to get your campaign in front of as many eyes as possible in order to make your project a success.

Tell-A-Friend Referral Programs!

Customer Referral programs are referral programs designed to specifically motivate your existing customers to help you find new customers.

Customer referral programs are extremely powerful because when an existing customer recommends their friends to your company, they are transferring the trust their friend has in them to you. This is why a friends recommendation is the only form of marketing that directly produces a purchasing behaviour.

Kickbooster acts as the perfect to tool to increase your backer engagement during your campaign! The campaigns that see the most success using Kickbooster have either reached 60% of their funding goal or are 30 days into their campaign.

Affiliate Referral Programs

Affiliate programs are referral programs that reward third parties, typically with cash, when new customers signup for your product or service as a result of their referral.

These programs can be effective when you have a collection of powerful influencers who have the ability to refer your product on a large scale (blog, podcast, etc…) or a community of consultants who work directly with your target customer base. With a monetary incentive these individuals have a reason to refer your product over someone else’s.

When running a crowdfunding campaign using an affiliate referral approach, it can be very powerful tool in getting influencers within your category to write about your campaign.
