Frequently Asked Questions

A customer referral program is not a short-term campaign. It’s something that you consistently offer to your customers over time, to become part of your brand and customer experience. Referral programs increase customer loyalty by rewarding your customers’ positive brand advocacy.

Do you have a great product or service? Is it paired with a rock solid customer experience? Then a referral program is perfect for you. A referral will more likely occur if your customers have a positive experience and association with your brand.

Yes. A RewardStream onboarding specialist will be with you every step of the way during your set up process. If you have technical difficulties, our technical team will be there to troubleshoot any issues.

You are likely going to a see an initial spike of referral activity at launch from people who are interested in learning more, followed by modest growth. Promoting the program and ensuring it’s visible in your marketing materials, and throughout your product purchase cycle, will be key to spreading the word. After the launch, results will grow as you continue to promote the program and engage with your customers. As more and more customers start making referrals, you’ll begin to see increased referral rates.

Analyze your referral funnel. If customers are not sending referrals, maybe it’s because they don’t know about your referral program. If referrals are being sent but no one is responding to them, revisit your referral emails and landing pages to ensure the copy is clear and the program is accessible. If customer referrals aren’t being approved, perhaps your referral program rules are too strict and you should consider being more flexible with timelines and offers. We can help you with this. Continue to test and optimize your referral program before making a final verdict.

No. There are many free referral marketing extensions for Shopify that offer a standalone software extension.  RewardStream is a more complete solution, offering you a full end-to-end referral marketing solution that includes set up, launch, and program optimization. We’re not just a software vendor, we’re your marketing partner.
