Buyapowa and Morgans Hotel Group launch the world’s first luxury hotel referral programme

In conjunction with the Morgans Hotel Group, Buyapowa are excited to announce the world’s first referral marketing programme for a luxury hotel. The innovative scheme equips and incentivises guests and diners at the celebrated Mondrian London Hotel to encourage their friends to stay, eat or drink at the hotel and its iconic restaurant, Sea Containers.

By working with Buyapowa, the world-leaders in referral marketing technology - who also power programmes for brands including ASOS, Ocado, L’Oréal and Telefónica - Morgans Hotel Group have been able to implement their ground-breaking scheme ahead of schedule and with zero IT overheads.

So, it’s no wonder that the refer-a-friend programme from celebrated cosmetics retailer, Space NK, is every bit as customised - and that’s something they’ve only been able to achieve by using the uniquely-configurable Buyapowa platform. Unlike standard referral programmes, where advocates receive a reward each and every time they get a friend shopping, SpaceNK are holding back their extra-generous reward until a participant gets three friends shopping.

Now, that wouldn’t work for, say, an automotive brand but, in the world of premium beauty - where every customer is likely to have numerous friends with similar taste and style - it makes perfect sense. And, it’s something SpaceNK are able to double-down on with another unique Buyapowa feature: the referral leaderboard, where the
