How to gain customer referrals in three ways:
1. Surprise your customers.
Go the extra mile to surprise your current customers with uniquely positive experiences. Word of mouth is easily one of the best ways to increase brand awareness and gain referrals, so give your customers something to talk about! Be different, embrace your brand’s uniqueness and amaze your customers with an unforgettable experience they will want to share with family and friends.
2. Keep it simple.
Include an ‘invite a friend’ button, or a ‘tell friends and family’ link on your webpage, social media profiles, and emails to customers. People are much more likely to participate in CTA’s (call-to-actions) when the action is simple, easy, and quick to execute.
3. Give rewards for referrals.
Offer incentives such as product discounts, invites to exclusive events, or the opportunity to be entered in a drawing to win a prize. Give customers some extra motivation to refer your business by providing them with a rewarding experience that makes them feel special.
