Yes this app is not cheap, but you're getting WAY more than a highly agile and flexible app. You're getting guidance and excellent support to ensure your campaigns are optimised. If you're going to do referral programs properly, the Refer app is the only choice.

Local Food Drive-Thru

We are a small group of farmers and were interested in setting up a refer-a-friend program to recruit new customers. We are not programmers in any way. We found the videos and step-by-step instructions extremely helpful. But more helpful than that was the customer service. It felt like an old fashioned moment to have a HUMAN to talk to... A HUMAN who answer our questions...A HUMAN who helped us troubleshoot. I am sure we were a burden to Gather in the end but they were gracious the whole way through.
