When creating your referral program, you may choose between three different share experiences for your members.
In this article, we will walk through the different sharing widgets available, as well as how to customize the default social media, text and email messages.
Found in the Member Portal or embedded on your site, members share at the click of a button with pre-formatted referral messages.
Referral Rock offers three share widget options:
Standard Share: Our default share widget. Members will be able to share via social media, text message, and email using the easy share buttons.
Select Customize Widget to hide certain share options and edit the instructional text
Direct Add: This allows your members to fill out a form to directly submit referrals directly to your program
Select Customize Widget to edit the Direct Add form & copy
Note: We have added additional Fraud Rules to accompany Direct Add, which allow you to limit the number of daily or monthly direct add referrals by your members, if desired. Please check them out here!
Email Form: Members will have access to a pre-built email which they can send directly from the portal, in addition to select easy share buttons and their referral link to copy
Select Customize Widget to edit the default & helper text on the widget. You will edit the email copy in the next step.
Social & Mobile Messages
Pre-populate messaging for your members to share via social media, email or text message. These pre-populated messages will appear when members select an easy share button from their share widget. If their referral URL is copy/pasted onto a social media platform, such as Facebook or Twitter, the social media image & copy will appear.
