Word of mouth is an extremely effective marketing method, and one of the most credible forms of advertising for most businesses. Customers referred by friends or family are more likely to make a purchase simply because they trust recommendations from people they know - research from Nielsen indicates that 83% of consumers either completely or somewhat trust recommendations from family, colleagues, and friends about products and services, making these recommendations the highest ranked source for trustworthiness.

With our Introduce a Friend feature, you can capitalise on the power of recommendations by encouraging your registered customers to introduce your store to their friends, family and colleagues. Using a form located within their customer account area, your customers can send a promotional email about your store to people they know, and if the recipients make a purchase from your store as a result (providing they're a new customer), your store can automatically reward the sender and/or the recipient with an emailed discount code that can be redeemed against a future purchase.

The feature also comes with a usage report that you can view in your store’s admin system to see how many of your customers make use of the referral feature, how many introductions are made, and how any orders you receive as a result.

This feature is included in the following pack(s):
