Typeform
Typeform allows you to create a dynamic and customizable sign up form while using ReferralHero as your backend to power your referral program! You may want to use Typeform if you are looking to improve the user sign up experience or to collect additional user opt-in data than you can collect with the native ReferralHero widget. This is also a great option if you are not a developer as the set up with Typeform is very easy!
You will need a Typeform account and a Zapier account before you start.
