Thanks for hunting Referlist @mulligan! Hey there Product Hunt ๐Ÿฑ! Excited to launch Referlist, a simple way to increase sign-ups on your landing page for pre-product launches. Give your users early access to your product when they share it with their friends! I make A LOT of landing pages. Whenever I want to test an idea, I'll make a website with a sign-up form to see how excited people are about a concept. I wanted to encourage word of mouth growth and incentivize my users to share these sites with their friends. Robinhood was able to amass nearly one million sign-ups via their referral program, so I tried googling for an easy way to add something similar to my page. Everything I found was expensive, too complicated and came pre-packaged with a landing page which I didn't want. I ended up building a custom solution for myself and it worked great! I noticed other friends launching projects doing the same, so we built Referlist to save everyone some time. Here's what it has to offer: ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ’ป No coding required. It's plug-and-play like Drift. Takes 5 minutes to setup ๐Ÿ†“ It's free to get started. You only pay if you get more than 100 sign-ups so you can feel free to launch as many failed experiments as your heart desires at no cost! ๐Ÿ—„๏ธ Export your users to CSV or Mailchimp ๐ŸŽจ Add a custom message and use custom colors on your waitlist page ๐Ÿ‰ Seed your waitlist so that it doesn't look completely empty for the first few sign-ups Any feedback is welcome! Feel free to email me directly at or tweet at @parthi_logan Cheers, Parthi and the Referlist team

I worked with @parthi_logan for years at Google and am excited to hunt his project. Referlist is a great tool for anyone making landing pages and testing ideas before fully building their product. It's super simple to setup and you only pay if your product takes off. I've been building a bunch of new projects recently and am excited to use Referlist for my next one!

Been using Referlist for various landing pages and its beauty is in its simplicity. It's ridiculously easy to set up, is just a waitlist (so it doesn't require me to create a corresponding landing page through its interface), and is much cheaper than the alternatives we were considering (gamechanger for us since in validation phase we're not willing to spend a ton on software). Definitely recommend to anyone looking to make their landing page sign ups go viral.

@gxzliu agree with all this. I had it up on our site in 10 mins. We're also in validation stage. Definitely seems to fill a gap in the market.

@gxzliu @bobmichaelperez My promise is 5. I need to bring that down. :-)

Congrats on the launch! Will definitely check this out as we are pre-launch right now :) I've used Viral Loops in the past. What's the benefit of Referlist for this particular use case over Viral Loops?

@mattcrail Viral Loops is great too! They're just incredibly expensive. This is a side project, so I'm not trying to gouge users on pricing. You can setup as many waitlists as you want for free with Referlist and only pay if you want to export over 100 sign-ups. Even the most expensive tier for unlimited sign-ups is $50/month whereas Viral Loops starts at $34 and goes up to North of $200
