Is referral marketing for you? If you are a customer, you can be a referral partner. However, sometimes an affiliate or agency program can be a better fit for you. Here are a few things you should think about before committing to a referral program

1. Difference between referral, affiliate, agency programs

The difference between these three will help you decide which one is the best for you. 

They all offer incentives to bring in new customers, but there are differences in strategy and approach.

Referral programs are for existing customers. Usually, companies will offer you incentives like discounts to share their products with your friends. You get a link or a code that you share with your friends, and if they use it, you will get a discount, points, or any other incentive.

Affiliate partners are often associated with referrals. But here’s the key difference. Affiliates are third-party advocates, which means you don’t have to be a customer to recommend a business and get paid. 

Agency partners are usually agencies or service providers with clients who will benefit from using the products and services. They will recommend the company’s service to their clients.  

Another difference between agency partners and affiliates, and referees is that they usually get a bigger fee than the rest. 

Tip: Go over the partner programs for the company you are interested in and see what they offer.
