Hubspot And Referral Factory
Connecting your Hubspot account with Referral Factory is really simple. Our Hubspot app syncs your referral campaign and your CRM, allowing you to send your referred leads directly to your Hubspot account. You can also qualify them with a simple status update on your Hubspot account. This reduces the ‘behind the scenes’ admin of your referral program and helps you know which of your referred leads qualify, it also helps you know which referrers you need to reward as a result.
To run a hassle free referral campaign, you need:
- A Hubspot account
- A Basic or Pro subscription with Referral Factory
Step by step guide to successfully integrate your referral campaign with Hubspot
Connect your Hubspot account by clicking on the settings tab on the left side navigation bar. Then click the ‘Connect’ button on the Hubspot integration option. Select the Hubspot account you wish to connect to Referral Factory.
*Note you can only connect one account at a time.
Now that your Referral Factory account is connected to Hubspot, you need to set what data you want to push from your referral program to Hubspot. This is done on a campaign level – you can do this inside your campaign, on the settings section of your campaign. Switch on the ‘Do you want to qualify your referrals’ toggle.
New contacts will now be created in Hubspot and you can decide what property you want to qualify referrals, as well as set a status for them to enter your CRM and when they are qualified. You can also choose what type of Referral Factory user you want to add to Hubspot, direct users, referred users or users who have directly been added to a campaign.
Next, choose which data you want to collect. Match the fields in Referral Factory with the relevant fields in your Hubspot account. If you don’t want to send a particular data point then choose ‘Do not send’ and this information will not pull through to Hubspot.
Once you’re done with your campaign setting, navigate to the notifications tab to continue your campaign setup. Your Hubspot settings will autosave so you don’t miss a step while building your program.
The Hubspot integration will also allow you the option of disabling the standard notifications sent to the person referring and the person invited, as you can now create your own notifications on Hubspot.
As soon as your referral program is live and you start getting referrals, they’ll automatically be sent to your Hubspot account with the lead status that you assigned.
You can qualify your new referrals on Referral Factory by updating the contact status on Hubspot – so when you update the status of a lead on Hubspot, it will automatically let Referral Factory know that lead has been qualified.
