Once you’ve built and launched your referral program, the goal should be to get as many people referring as possible.
The best way to make sure your referral program is a success is to get as many people referring as possible. To help you do that, Referral Factory gives you lots of options to promote your referral program and bring the maximum number of referrers.
In this help guide we will show you all the promotional tools that you can use to get more referrals 👇
Let's take a look at each of them individually, and see how you can promote your referral campaigns 👇
- Get your join link, and let people register to refer
Your join link is where users can register themselves to refer.
This is your campaign link to share with customers so they can register and get their unique referral links. You can include this join link in an email blast to users, or text them the join link, or add it to your website.
Your campaign QR code automatically generated so that people who want to become referrers can scan it to join your referral program. This works well is you have a physical location like a retail store, a restaurant or offices that your clients visit.
- Generate referral links for your CRM contacts
This will allow you to sync your CRM contacts or a specific list of contacts to your referral program and call their unique referral links back to your CRM.

Install a pop-up on your website for your logged-out users
You can install a pop-up on your website which will allow you to trigger a full-screen pop-up on your website when the user clicks a button, scrolls, or stays on your website for a certain time.

- Upload and email your contacts their referral links
You can email your contacts/users their referral links directly.
All you need to do is upload a list of users, craft and style your email, and hit send.
- Click on “Create Email”
- Customize the email you want to send
- Hit next and upload users in a CSV file
- Click confirm and send
When you click on Create an email, you will be directed to an email builder page where you have the option to edit and style your own email to send your users their referral links.
You also have the option to send a test email to see how your email looks.
Once you're happy with your email, click Next → select the CSV file you want to upload.
Once you’ve uploaded your CSV, you need to map out the fields you want to include when you add the users to your campaign. To do this, mark which columns in the file correspond to the fields from the campaign.
You can also choose to overwrite any existing users. This means if a user is already in your campaign and they are also in this CSV file, their data will not be updated or overwritten. Selecting this option also means that the users you add to the campaign will NOT be sent an email notification.
Once you're happy with your email setup, hit confirm and send.
This is a once-off email that you can send to users, assign each one their own referral link to encourage them to start referring.
