8 simple AB test experiments to boost your referral metrics

Life is full of choices. Especially at this time of year.

Wine or champagne? (Champagne obviously).

Yule log or trifle.

Ant or Dec.

Whatever floats your boat.

As marketers, we mustn't be presumptuous about what our customers might like, particularly when it comes to referral marketing. As the saying goes “one man’s meat is another man’s poison”. Thank goodness then for AB testing.


Benefit magnify their customer love with referrals

Benefit Cosmetics has grown from a single make up shop “The Face Place” in 1976 to a global cosmetics brand. Their growth has been fuelled by a love of the fun, tongue-in cheek approach to a sector which can often take itself too seriously.

With such loyal customers, referral marketing was an obvious way to harness this advocacy to drive new customer acquisition.


Case Study: Swoon worthy furniture proves highly referrable

With a mission to make homes remarkable though distinctive design, beautiful craft and fair prices, Swoon Editions have built up a loyal customer base. Keen to harness this advocacy they decided to launch a referral programme, and selected the Mention Me platform to power it. 


How AB testing can make or break your referral marketing programme

Optimising the Referral Funnel

Many refer-a-friend schemes don't work as well as they could. Fact. 
A few years ago Mention Me surveyed 150 UK online companies and found that about half of them had some kind of referral scheme. Yet very few of them proclaimed it a runaway success. Why is this?
