One of the reasons this method is so effective is that irrespective of how much people spend on promotions, they tend to believe the word of someone they trust — referral marketing helps establish that trust.

So how do retailers and brands find the best referral strategy that works for them? This article discusses five steps to help beginners flesh out a potent strategy.

The fifth point mentions promoting the referral program, which the article says can be done via sending targeted emails, using referral links, leveraging social media, encouraging user-generated content, and promoting the referral program on the website.
