Referral Marketing

< Back to all Categories

Definition

Referral Marketing describes any tactic that fuels acquiring new customers based upon referrals rather than paid advertising. Also called Word of Mouth (WoM), Influencer Marketing and Brand Advocacy, it's a powerful path to conversion because the message is holistic, delivered directly to new consumers from existing customers in the form of personal recommendations, online testimonials, and unpaid editorial content. Tools in this category include Calls-to-Action widgets, incentivized referral programs, refer-a-friend apps, tools that help a company search for online brand mentions and more.
