Steven, Founder of RefMonkey

“We built RefMonkey to help businesses utilize their existing user base and affiliates to grow their sales”

We all prefer to do business with someone we know or trust. This is why referral marketing can be one of the most effective strategies to expand brand reach and increase sales. When users refer their friends, half the battle is already won in terms of winning trust.

Referral marketing helps to increase brand awareness and secure reputation and credibility. Through referral marketing, you can share your brand’s story with more people while improving your overall influence.

Many people nowadays want to align themselves with brands that have a positive reputation. Modern consumers favor more authentic, honest brands. Referral marketing allows your existing customers to tell your brand’s story for you.

Through the power of word-of-mouth marketing, businesses are proven to gain quality leads with lower cost-per-lead than other channels. Referral programs are a popular and proven approach to increase repeat customers. And this is the basis upon which RefMonkey was built. RefMonkey is a powerful referral program API to help you grow your brand through word of mouth marketing.
