Comme vous l’avez peut être déjà lu, nous venons de lancer le programme dernière génération de l’entreprise de taxi business-class la plus considérée à Londres, Addison Lee. La première chose à laquelle vous penserez en lisant “parrainage” et “taxi” est bien entendu Uber : notre intention n’est en aucun cas de dupliquer leur programme de parrainage, mais bel et bien de l’améliorer. Si vous pensez que c’est une prise de parti optimiste, prenons un peu de recul et examinons leur programme en détails. Vous serez surpris de constater qu’il n’est pas aussi irréprochable qu’on le croit. Mais avant tout posons le contexte !

Le parrainage est l’une des

One referral good. Many referrals better.

Get your customers referring again & again

Most referral platforms regard one referral per participant as a success but, here at Buyapowa, some of our clients regularly see 10, 20, even hundreds of paying referrals generated by their most active super-advocates. In fact, across our entire range of clients, one in every 50 referrers is responsible for almost 20% of all referrals. Find these people, equip, incentivise and nurture them, and the rewards can be immense.

In the slides below, we examine some great examples and unveil the tools and tactics you need to get your customers bringing in more friends than ever before.
