'Quick Add' Referral
The 'Quick Add' Referral feature is a way for current subscribers to directly add referrals through the ReferralHero Widget. Depending on your settings, these new subscribers can be directly added or given the option to opt-in to your ReferralHero campaign. This feature gives you the ability to grow your subscriber list faster and follow up with these new subscribers in various ways.
Here are a few examples of why you might want to use this feature:
  1. 1.
    Generating Leads Fast
    You incentivize customers to provide leads and relevant contact information so you can do the follow-up.
    ie. You're a SAAS business. A current customer refers or ‘Quick Adds’ a lead and your sales team can directly follow up, instead of hoping the lead contacts you.
  2. 2.
    Mass Brand Exposure
    You have customers who are willing to immediately provide friends' contact information in exchange for a reward.
    ie. You're an e-commerce business. You ask current customers to refer or ‘Quick Add’ 5 friends by providing their contact info and you can send a branded email asking them to opt-in and join your newsletter, follow on social, etc.
  3. 3.
    Offline Service/Product
    You have customers who want to refer people but asking them to "share a link" is not ideal for one reason or another. Instead, they can directly submit leads and get credit for the referral(s).
    ie. You're a plumbing company and incentivize customers to refer neighbors. The customer recommends your plumbing service in a conversation with a friend and later submits or ‘Quick Adds’ their information.
  4. 4.
    Team Events
    You host team events and one of the participants can directly add other members and get credit for the referral(s).
    ie. You're a website that organizes team events (relay races, group fundraisers, etc.). The team leader can invite or ‘Quick Add’ other team members and get a reward for each person who joins.
These are only a few of the many use cases for this feature. Please let us know by emailing [email protected] if you are using this feature in a different way!
