As old as marketing is, word-of-mouth has been one of the most efficient and effective ways of increasing the client base of any business. It organically brings in interested clients and establishes a reputation in the market.
One of the most effective modernized versions of ‘word-of-mouth’ is a referral campaign. A referral campaign incentivizes existing clients to introduce your practice to their peers, friends, and family members to convert them into new clients.
A more developed and refined form of word-of-mouth marketing, creating a referral program is one of the best marketing tools which provides a human connection to your brand. It has proven to be a useful tool in increasing clientele and retaining more clients. 81% of people trust recommendations from friends and family over those from businesses.
The references generated from your customers are more organic and authentic. They instill a positive perspective of your brand into the referred client. A referral program invariably helps you expand your network and spread your practice’s value amongst potential clients.
Furthermore, they are also very cost-effective, compared to expensive methods like social media ads and email campaigns. A report from Review 42 reflected that referral leads have a 30% higher conversion rate than leads from any other channel. It also accounts for approximately 65% of companies’ new deals.
Incentive-based referral campaigns refer to gift cards and vouchers that you can hand over to a client who refers your practice to someone. It is a popular referral strategy that has proven to be very effective. You can also provide coupons, like free detox treatments or a 10% discount on their next consultation, if they agree to recommend your services to their circle.
Rather than asking your clients to approach their network individually, social media referrals allow them to instantly reach their entire audience with just one share. It can provide you with intense exposure and reach that can help boost your practice’s brand awareness and expand your business growth.
A referral fee is a kind of a commission that you pay someone who brings a customer to your business. You can pay a referral fee to doctors and local physicians who might endorse you to their clients.
