River Island launches Friends with Benefits

River Island's new refer-a-friend programme

It's a big day for us here at Buyapowa, as we push the button on an exciting new refer-a-friend programme for the much-loved fashion retailer, River Island. This follows other high-profile launches for leading fashion brands including Zalando, ASOS, New Look and Gap.

For the past six decades, River Island has proudly maintained its place at the cutting edge of high street fashion, tracking trends in technology just as relentlessly as those in design. And it's that hunger to stay ahead that's led to their adoption of referral marketing - now the most effective form of new customer acquisition for fashion brands, both here in the UK and in the 18 other countries where River Island operate worldwide.

Friends are incentivised to shop

By using Buyapowa's ground-breaking refer-a-friend platform, River Island are now able to equip and inspire their army of customers to get their friends shopping. Everyone who does so will receive £10 off their next order, while those friends will be incentived to take the plunge via a trackable 20% saving against their first shop.

BT Mobile, Lebara and Three's Smarty all join the Buyapowa family

BT Mobile, Lebara and Smarty

Just last month, we announced the launch of a refer-a-friend programme for Vodafone's VOXI sub-brand. Today, we're delighted to announce that we'll be working with three further UK telecoms companies: BT Mobile, Lebara and Smarty - the brand new in-house MVNO from another of our clients, Three.

Each of these networks is highly distinct, with singular selling points: BT Mobile offers the UK's biggest 4G network, free wi-fi and perks such as BT Sport; Lebara specialises in international calling, offering packages including unlimited calls to 50 countries across the globe; while Smarty is one of a new breed of highly-targeted sub-brands with compelling features - in this case, a novel new approach to data, where any unused megabytes are refunded the following month.

For a number of years, Buyapowa has been the go-to referral marketing platform for the telecoms industry. Clients such as Three and O2 have benefitted enormously from our technology but, equally, we've benefitted from working with them - developing our understanding of the telecoms sector and its customers at a rate and to a degree which would never have been possible without such incredible hands-on experience. And it's that experience which enables our team of experts to
