Referral allows you to recommend an organization’s product to others and earn a commission. Here are some of the things that you should have at the back of your mind when it comes to Affiliate marketing.


In carrying out affiliate marketing, you can offer discounts on your products and services to the clients who give you a referral. They might be asked to pay a lesser amount than they are supposed to pay. This allows them to refer more people and get discounts on products purchased.


There is also the use of a “loss leader” referral system. Here free samples of your product can be given to new clients for creating awareness about your products, which will, in turn, generate more sales for the organization.

You can also partner with other non-competitive organizations. You can be asked them to assist you in sending your promotional messages to clients in their database. For example, an SEO company can decide to partner with an SEO blogger in order to make his services available to his blog followers.


Also, you can conduct surveys, and ask for feedback from the customer about ways to improve your products and services. This will give your customers a sense of belonging. It will also improve their commitment to the organization.

To get leads through feedback, here are some of the things you need to know. First, some people visiting your website read about your products and services and make product purchase. It is also possible that most visitors coming to your website do not take the time to read about your products and services.


Also, you have to make sure that before a user jumps to the next page, you make use of a pop-up to collect feedback from a user. This will help you to know what they are looking for exactly.

Another means of generating leads for organizations is through the use of soft lead methods. Soft leads are leads that exchange an email address or contact address for something that is of value to them such as access to a whitepaper or free samples. Also, social media referrals at times can also be referred to as soft leads.


Social media platforms are ideal for spreading awareness about a company and gathering potential information about prospects that might be interested in your products and services.


Also, soft lead generation is the most ideal for businesses trying to target leads early in their sales lifecycle.


You need to know that lead generation plays an important role when it comes to the success of any marketing strategy. It has to do with creating engaging content for webinars, videos, whitepapers and guides that direct users towards lead funnels.


At times, when it comes to online marketing, your Return On Investment is calculated based on the number of soft and hard leads that you are able to convert. Hard leads measure success only through sales and revenue earned from the website.


Soft leads make the visitors perform certain actions such as providing contact information, filling a form and creating an email account among others.
