Referral programs involve incentivizing current customers or partners to refer new customers or clients to a business. This is typically done through rewards, such as discounts or cash bonuses. The goal is to increase customer acquisition and growth through word-of-mouth marketing. Referral programs can be a cost-effective way for businesses to gain new customers while also rewarding their existing ones.
Why it matters in sales
Referral programs are a powerful tool in the sales organization's arsenal. By tapping into the customer's natural inclination to share experiences and recommendations with their loved ones, the sales team can ride the wave of positive word-of-mouth and gain new customers without breaking the bank. It's like having an army of loyal brand ambassadors who are willing to go to bat for your company. And who doesn't love a good recommendation from a trusted source? It's like getting a stamp of approval from the cool kids' table at lunch.
