The Ecommerce sector is set to see more intense competition nowadays. Simply having a nice design website or selling to multichannels is no longer enough to stand out than competitors. In fact, study has proven that there’s a powerful area that we might have neglected in Ecommerce business: Referral marketing.
What is Referral Marketing?
Referral marketing, also called word-of-mouth marketing, is a strategy that promotes a product or service to new customers through recommendations by the referrals (family, friends, social media influencers etc). According to Nielsen, 92% of the consumers will tend to believe referrals from the people they know and people are 4 times more likely to purchase a product or service when referred by a friend.
This marketing strategy is powerful and is continually becoming one of the primary factors behind all the purchasing decisions. Why?
Trust factor. This reason has played a critical role in convincing someone to purchase something. If we do not trust someone, we are not going to listen to them nor purchase anything from them. Studies have shown that the purchasers are likely to trust real people's opinion over the generic ads.
Increased marketing reach. By using your website's existing customers as your advocates, this marketing strategy allows you to increase more outreach, as there is no limitation to your existing customer base spreading to their friends or family members about a good product or a company itself.
Increased in customer retention rate. We often try different approaches to reach more customers, investing in affiliates or advertisements which end up incurring a huge cost. Customers that participate in referral marketing programs are more likely to stay longer with you.
