If you are interested in creating a rewards-based referral campaign for your marketing effort, Goolara Symphonie’s Refer-a-Friend feature lets you do this with capabilities that rival the best referral software on the market. With it, you can offer your subscribers reward incentives for any successful sign-ups they recommend. Best of all, there's no need for specific links or codes. Your clients can make recommendations via any social site, such as Face, Twitter, or anything else, and your client will receive their referral reward.
While there are third-party referral services that offer similar features, most require special codes or links with query strings for the referrer to receive credit for the referral. Some referral services also require your subscribers to download proprietary apps to join the referral programs, others silo the data received separate from your own subscriber list.
There are many advantages to Symphonie’s refer-a-friend feature over third-party vendors, including:
- All referrals credited regardless of source.
- Use the built-in templates or create your own.
- Works with Symphonie’s report features.
- List size controls to prevent spam attempts.
- Comes with Symphonie, free of charge.
With the increased scrutiny on data gathering techniques and the fines associated with violating certain international privacy regulations, marketers are turning to less invasive referral techniques to increase their subscriber ranks. A well-planned referral program is a great way to increase your subscriber base by tapping into the goodwill of your current subscribers. Using this Refer-a-Friend technique, you avoid unsolicited emails and grow your subscriber based on the satisfaction of your customers.
Versatile and Adaptable
Goolara Symphonie gives you all the design and mailing controls you could want as well. Use the existing referral form or design your own with HTML. You can also limit the number or referrals at a time to ensure that no one can abuse the system. Best of all, by using Symphonie’s Refer-a-Friend feature, your subscribers will always receive the proper credit for any friend referral they make even is that person does not use the provided link to join the mailing list. No third-party referral software can offer this.
