Hey all, I gathered this collection of referral programs initially for an application. These great referral programs helped me a ton when putting together one my business case, hope you find them useful. My favorite deck has to be the Harry's one - not because of the content but because of the story surrounding it: Firstly because the founders searched 2 years about the shaving industry before pretending offering their customers a quality shaving experience at an affordable price. Second because I believe shaving industry is an insanely competitive and concentrated market - which Harry's brilliantly penetrated thanks to a referral program all about "credibility" . The full story about their referral programs is truly fascinating and worth a read (available on Tim Ferris website).

@enzo_avigo thanks for gathering all these! Besides their email invites, I quite liked Dropbox's "space race" when they got students to refer their classmates to compete with other schools/universities for points and collectively get as much free storage space as possible https://www.dropbox.com/help/390

Cool product @afkehaya! As I see most of these successful programs are customized to fit the brands, can I ask you if the standardisation of your product is a problem for your users success?
@enzo_avigo our API allows you to build a completely custom referral program. Most of our customers start out using our JS plugins to quickly implement and test their program. Once they find something that works, they use the API to customize the user experience and rewards. What's been your experience building these types of programs?
@afkehaya I'm looking at starting a partner program on Subbly, can we talk?
@stefanpretty yes! Shoot me an email alex@kehaya.com and we can setup a time to talk next week.
This is a good in-depth look at the referral programs for these 15 companies. We launched a product on PH a couple months ago also showing the benefits to both sides as well. It's less detailed, but we have over 300 company referral programs. You can see more here if interested: https://www.producthunt.com/post...
