What Is A Referral Marketing Program?
A referral marketing program is a strategy to deliver 5-star service to every customer, and once they are delighted, consistently ask for referrals. All businesses want referrals, but most do not have a systematic program for obtaining them. In today’s market, many customers want a little extra off the price or a few extra products or services to be thrown in to sweeten the deal. We advise our clients not to give any of these away to make the deal but rather to barter for referrals. You would be surprised how happy prospects are to trade 3-5 referrals and some feedback on social media, You Tube, or Google for a sweeter deal. Just imagine the effect on your bottom line when satisfied customers receive VIP treatment or insider pricing in exchange for referrals. What you give up to get the referral is almost always less than what you would have to invest to reach, influence, and convert a cold prospect.
Why You Should Start a Referral MarketingProgram?
Here are the facts on referral marketing:
- Word of mouth, a referral, is the most cost-effective marketing.
- Cold leads close at an average of 20%, referrals close at an average of 50% – 75%.
- A referral transfers the trust your client has to the cold prospect making them a warm lead.
- Cold prospects can cost 5-7 times more than warm leads.
- When customers refer someone, they follow up and ask their friend if they are happy. If both are satisfied, customer retention increase.
- On average, customers who are referred spend up to twice as much and remain customers for twice as long.
Why you should consider Accelerated Advertising
to develop your referral marketing program
A referral marketing program should be incorporated with a multi-channel and nurture marketing program to maximize your returns. We explain it this way…if you do an email blast asking for referrals, it is better than doing nothing. However, when you repeat an email blast, it will receive fewer and fewer responses proportionately to the number of times you email. However, when you develop your communication across email, text, social media, and video, you should ensure your customer’s time with your content is an investment of time and not a waste of it. Give them value and focus on their needs. Customer focus is the hallmark of quality nurture, reactivation, and referral program. We focus on helping you engage your customers by giving them high-quality, helpful content; then, we ask for referrals. We often suggest giving clients who refer a prospect a nice premium or entering them into a monthly give-a-way contest where the winner receives dinner for two at a nice restaurant. Referrals can be part of joining a VIP or Beta program. We run a beta program to ensure all the kinks are addressed and removed when we launch a new product or service. We offer our VIP customers first refusal to enter the discounted beta program in exchange for knowing it is a beta program, giving us feedback so we can improve, and some referrals.

Three hallmarks of successful advertisers & marketers
Over the years, Accelerated Advertising has observed three things:
- Companies that deliver excellent value and invest in marketing and advertising – survive difficult times and grow and thrive in normal conditions. Those who do not offer value must invest considerable sums in advertising and sales. They must find people who are uneducated about the product or service and unaware of completion that provides better value. Our goal is to help good people and good companies grow cost-effectively.
- Businesses that invest in tracking their advertising and marketing, on average, grow 30% faster. Over time, they spend 30% less than competitors who “save” money by not tracking their marketing.
- Businesses that test their results find the most effective marketing. Not every marketing activity will be a home run. However, savvy marketers will accelerate their results by testing small, dropping activities that do not do as well as others and investing in the activities with the best returns. Those that commit to constant improvement accelerate their growth and profits.
