What is the referral popup?

The referral popup is one of the referral methods offered in Lootly.

It allows your customers to take advantage of your referral offer and share your brand with their friends and family through one of the sharing options offered in the popup method.

The beauty of the referral popup is that it allows customers to do the referral right then and there, without having to leave the page or disrupt their browsing on your store.

What are the benefits of using a referral popup?

Website popups in general have a lot of pros, among which are increased customer engagement and increased conversion rates.

Knowing your customers’ buying journey, you can create a popup that isn’t intrusive, but is intuitive and follows the natural flow of actions of your customers.

A best practice to assure high referral rates is adding the referral popup on your post-purchase confirmation page where your customers can refer their friends and family right after they’ve made the purchase instead of having to rely on your customers to click the popup and send the referral while they’re browsing your site.

Advanced Referral Popup Targeting options

With Lootly, you can define the logic of the referral popup to display in the right time, to the right customers with the right message.

The platform offers powerful restriction options and customizations for you to promote your referral program to your customers in a very effective way.

  • Only show if URL matches - choose where do you want to display the popup - you can add 1 or multiple urls here. Think about your goal with referral sales and the optimal user experience on your site.
