A Guide to Setting Up Your Refer a Friend Program

There’s value in acquiring new customers for your business, but there’s more to be said for retaining the ones you already have. A more loyal customer base not only means more sales and revenue for your company but also helps to create a community of users who can vouch for your products or services.

In this guide, we’ll go over everything you need to know about setting up a refer a friend program with the help of Alpine IQ’s marketing platform.

How You Can Reward Your Loyal Customers with Alpine IQ

It’s important to partner with a marketing platform that’s created for retailers and brands, like Alpine IQ.

Alpine IQ’s marketing platform includes a refer a friend program feature that allows you to reward your customers for referring new business your way. How it works is simple:

  • Customers are given their own unique and trackable referral link
  • Whenever they refer a friend who makes a purchase, they receive rewards points that can be redeemed in exchange for a reward of your choosing

Alpine IQ’s refer a friend program platform gives you an all-in-one solution for managing your customer database, tracking referrals, and issuing rewards.

You can also determine how you wish to reward your customers: whether it’s a percentage off their next purchase, or a free product, you have the flexibility to create a program that works best for your business. You can also reward them for simply signing up for your loyalty program.

Types of Rewards for Your Customers

The rewards you offer your customers can be as simple or as creative as you’d like. The essential thing is that you give them something that’s valuable to them. As we mentioned, with Alpine IQ, you have the flexibility to determine what your incentives are. Some of these include:

  • Discounts:  A percentage off their next purchase, or a set dollar amount
  • Loyalty points: Earn points for every purchase that can be redeemed for discounts on products

And it doesn’t have to be a one-sided incentive! With a two-sided refer a friend program, you give a reward to both the customer and the person they refer. This is a great way to encourage customers to continue referring friends and helps to create a sense of community.
