Embeddable Widgets

Embeddable widgets are our ready-made components that can be quickly inserted into your page for displaying the sign-up form, the sharing screen and more.

We currently have two embeddable widgets:

  • sign-up widget

  • floating button

You can use either one on your website to have a quick way to allow people to sign-up to your referral program and get their referral link. If you're not a technical person, then the embeddable widgets are your best options.

Sign-up widget

To install the sign-up widget on your website:

  1. Go to your campaign dashboard > Installation instructions and copy your Tracking Code

  2. Add the ReferralHero Tracking Code to your site so that it loads on each webpage. This is typically done by adding it into the <head> section of your website

  3. Paste <div id="maitre-widget"></div> exactly where you want the widget to appear in your page. It must be within the <body> of your page.

<body>
<div id="maitre-widget"></div>
</body>

If your website undergoes a major design change where themes and template files are replaced or content in your <head> tags or anywhere else the Tracking Code is installed are replaced, it's a possibility you will need to re-install the Tracking Code.

Floating Button

The Floating Button is a button fixed on the screen (exactly like a chat widget, e.g: Intercom) that allows your users to sign up from any page of your website, thus making it easier for them to join your referral program. For you, it also means that you don't need to create a dedicated landing page for your referral program.

To install the Floating Button on your website:

  1. Go to your campaign dashboard > Installation instructions and copy your Tracking Code

  2. Add the ReferralHero Tracking Code to your site so that it loads on each webpage. This is typically done by adding it into the <head> section of your website

  3. Go to your campaign dashboard > Edit Campaign > Installation

  4. In the section called "Choose how to add participants to your campaign", choose the "Floating button" tab

  5. Click on the toggle Enable Floating Button and customize the text and colour of the button

  6. Save the changes

To avoid conflicts, the Floating Button only works on pages where you DO NOT use the sign-up form. In other words, you can't have the form and the Floating Button on the same page and if you do, the form will be given precedence and the floating button will not appear.

How to verify the installation

To verify the installation of your ReferralHero Tracking code, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Installation page (campaign dashboard > Edit Campaign > Installation)

  2. Click on the tab "Verify installation"

  3. Enter the URL of the page where you have installed ReferralHero

  4. You will be redirected to the page you have entered. If the Tracking Code is present you will see a confirmation box in the top left corner of the screen.
