Get More Referrals

Referral Rock has a singular focus on helping you get more referrals.  In our experience helping thousands of companies, we’ve learned that the biggest indicator of success is providing a great ambassador experience.  

Your ambassadors are the backbone of any referral and affiliate program you run. It is critical that they have a wonderful experience or nothing else you do will matter. Referral Rock puts the ambassador experience at the heart of everything we do. 

There are three components for creating a great ambassador experience.

Promotion to get more ambassadors

Without ambassadors, your referral and affiliate programs will never get off the ground. Therefore, it’s critical that you make it easy for them to learn and enroll in your program. 

Ambassador promotion must go beyond an initial email blast. Instead it must be a part of a recurring system that continuously invites existing and future ambassadors to participate. 

It must run on autopilot and be built into your existing customer experiences. This makes it easy for you to manage and allows the program to run in the background, constantly enrolling and engaging new ambassadors. 

Referral Rock enables you to promote your program through several unique features:

Engagement to get your ambassadors excited

Once your ambassadors learn about your program, you need to get them excited so they can start spreading the word. You want to make it easy for them to share, track their progress, and get rewarded. 

Referral Rock helps you provide an easy, fun, and engaging experience so your ambassadors will continue to share and spread the word on your company. 

Follow up to bring your ambassadors back

Referral marketing shouldn’t be a one-off process. It should be an ongoing channel and source of new referrals. 

Effective follow up reminds your ambassadors of your program and encourages them to keep sharing. This ongoing process is key to creating a sustainable and scalable marketing channel. 

Referral Rock gives you to tools to effectively follow up with your ambassadors without bombarding them with excess emails. 

Faster ROI

Referral Rock is the best Ambassador alternative that works out of the box. Launch in days without requiring any development resources or external integrations. Continue to test and optimize your program while generating ROI.
