Frequently Asked Questions
What is referral marketing?Click to open
Referrals are leads that a business gets from its existing customers. Referral marketing is the process that streamlines the process of soliciting, converting, and measuring the success of a business’s word of mouth campaigns.
Why is it important for a business to have a referral program?Click to open
Referral leads are extremely valuable for a business. Referred leads convert more than other leads and spend more than normal walk-in leads. However, it is difficult for businesses to track and maximize their referral programs as they usually rely on word of mouth. A referral program helps businesses gain visibility into their word-of-mouth programs and maximize revenue from referrals.
Why do I need referral software?Click to open
Physical referrals aren't scalable or trackable-just think about all the unredeemed referral coupons stuck under car seats or washed with the laundry. Referral software lets you send personalized referral requests to happy customers and experiment with incentives. You can track and maximize SUCCESS with end-to-end campaign reporting.
What does Birdeye Referrals do?Click to open

What's the difference between a loyalty program and a referral program?Click to open
Referral programs reward customers for referring their friends and family to a business. They work well in almost all business cases, but are especially effective for infrequent or one-time purchases like healthcare or real estate. Meanwhile, loyalty programs incentivize customers to make repeat purchases and work best for retail stores and restaurants.
When should you ask a customer for a referral?Click to open
Identifying the magic moment is tricky, but here are some scenarios that we've seen work:
- A patient loaves positive review after a dental procedure
- A customer has just bought a car and is feeling great
- 2-4 weeks after your client has moved into their new house
How do I measure the effectiveness of my referral program?Click to open
You should measure the effectiveness of your referral campaign across its life cycle in order to minimize leakages at every stage:
- Revenue generated from the referral program
- Number of referral leads received
- Number of referral messages shared by your customers
- Number of referral requests sent to customers
How can I ensure that only my happy customers get referral requests?Click to open
You can easily pair Birdeye Referrals with Birdeye Reviews, your CRM or NPS software to send automated referral requests to only your happiest customers. Birdeye offers out-of-the-box integrations to 3,000+ apps such as Salesforce, Hubspot, and more.
How do I choose the right referral incentives? Click to open

- Reward both referrers and their friends
- Cash rewards are easy, scalable, and universally loved
