[September 2023] 🤠 Improved Gift Card Selection

Check out the product improvements and tips-focused blog posts that shipped this month.

Welcome to the September 2023 roundup, where we share what’s new in Referral Rock. 🤠 Other semi-monthly editions include Data Insights and Feature Updates.

Hi there,

Fall is a season for fresh starts, which is why it’s a great time to take stock of your referral program (if you have one!) and see where you can make it better. Referral program optimization means focusing on 2 key metrics:

1. Share rate (the percentage of people who share your referral program)
2. Conversion rate (the percentage of referred customers who make a purchase)

To boost these metrics, you can look at…

  • Ramping up promotion of your program (sharing it more via email and other key locations across the customer journey)

  • Changing up your rewards or making them 2-sided (where both the referrer and the referral get a reward)

  • Improving your program landing page so the copy and images are more enticing

Check out How to Optimize Your Customer Referral Program or How to Optimize Your Affiliate Marketing program to learn more, and read on to see what we shipped this month.

We’ll be back in a couple of weeks with a fresh data insight newsletter on reward types. 😀


📣 Product Updates

Improved Gift Card Section in the Reward Builder: Gift cards are one of our most popular reward types — and now there’s an improved UI in the reward builder, so it’s easier to see what’s available by region. We also added a New Zealand gift card option. 🇳🇿 Learn more about gift cards

Gift card options in the Reward Builder

ICYMI: Member Visits Dashboard (beta): Track when both new and returning members visit their share portal, and see the sources they’re coming in from (e.g. email campaigns, social, etc.) and how often they’re sharing. The Total Shares section of this dashboard is awesome for helping you track the success of your referral program over time. Learn more >

Smaller Improvements:

  • You can now customize font colors in the member portal

  • ReCaptcha checkbox added as backup validation during admin login
