Before you Start

Why Get the Referral?

Consumers have never been more actively engaged with the brands they use in their everyday lives and are more willing than ever to talk about and refer them too.

Average Americans look at their phones a staggering average of 96 times a day. With adults spending 2 hours and 54 minutes a day on their phone, 86% of that time in apps, it pays to have a branded mobile app dedicated to getting referrals, managing them, and paying out rewards.

This is where GetTheReferral provides tremendous value for the businesses that we serve. We’ll show you how easy it is to put your branded mobile app in the hands of your customers right from the point of sale to help streamline, automate, and amplify the referral process. 

The results speak for themselves, with GTR customers generating a 22X a return on their investment on average:

  4. Your advocate will get push notifications when pictures are uploaded to their project and will access the pictures in Your Company app:

  6. The GTR account administrator can also see the pictures in GTR dashboard:
