Anyone who runs a service business knows that referrals are the lifeblood of the business. This word-of-mouth engine to drive growth in your business is absolutely essential to growing a service based business.
But many of us wonder how we can accelerate the growth of such an organic channel. The answer (or course) is implementing a proper referral program. Here are just a few ways that SalesCamp can help you build a referral program for your service business and unleash a new marketing engine in your business.
Easy to Implement
SalesCamp was born out of the need to create super simple ways to get a referral program live on your website. With just a few clicks and some details about the type of program you want to set up you can have a tailor made referral program live on your site.
No fancy coding or website customizations necessary.
Whether your service business offers one-time or recurring services SalesCamp has you covered. You can configure your referral campaign to have a goal of anything you’d like…including:
- New Paying Customers
- Booking a Demo
- New Email Signups
- Scheduling a Consultation
And the list goes on.
We know that no two businesses are the same, which is why we give you all of the options of how you present your referral program to customers and brand ambassadors, what types of goals you set for your programs, and what the rewards are for those who refer new people into your business.

Customers and Brand Ambassadors can participate
Often with service based businesses you won’t have thousands (or tens of thousands) of customers like some SaaS or eCommerce stores will have. And so you might want to invite not only your existing customers to participate but also your fans and brand champions. After all they’re just as likely to refer new people your way, right?
Inside SalesCamp you can decide who have visibility to your referral program, how and when they can sign up, and we give you full details about every aspect of the referral program in your reporting dashboard.

Detailed tracking analytics
Once your campaign has been designed and pushed live it’s time to start reviewing how it’s performing. Your SalesCamp dashboard gives you detailed information about your referrers, the rewards they’ve earned, the status of those rewards, and what the fulfillment status of the rewards is.
So you know exactly who your top performers are (Pro Tip: you will likely have just a handful of referrers who send most of the new leads/customers your way…so it’s especially important to pay special attention to them).
From your campaign reporting dashboard you can also download reports about your campaigns and their rewards.
One-click integration into Stripe
If you’re using Stripe as your payment processor we’ve got a treat for you! Our one-click Stripe integration lets you seamlessly track new paying customers for either one-time or subscription/recurring billing events for referred customers in your business.
So if you want to set up a referral campaign with a goal of New Paying Customers and pay your referrers $10 each time they refer over a new customer, you can do that.
Or if you want to set up a campaign that rewards referrers 20% of every transaction that a subscription customer pays (i.e. a recurring reward) you can do that…just a click of a button.
API for full control and customization
If you’re more technically minded or have developers on your team the ultimate customization and control comes through our RESTful API and webhooks. With this you have full control within your website or app of every aspect of your referral program.
