"Marketers often say they want more referrals from their customers to lower customer acquisition costs, shorten sales cycles and attract more loyal customers, but they don't have the necessary framework in place to generate them," says Jim Williams, VP of Marketing at Influitive.

It walks marketers through choosing the right ingredients to deliver the optimal experience, selecting the best tools to nurture advocates and measure their engagement, gathering skilled cooks to lead and support the entire program, and prepping the most important ingredient in customer referral programs – advocates.
"Sales and marketing leaders who build solid strategies to leverage their advocates for referrals will see faster acquisitions, stronger social proof and shorter sales cycles," adds eBook contributor Trish Bertuzzi, President and Chief Strategist of The Bridge Group.
