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

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:
