Pune, Nov. 30, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global referral marketing software market size is projected to reach USD 713.3 million by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 15.5% during the forecast period. Increasing utilization of referral marketing strategies by big brands is expected to stimulate the growth of this market, shares Fortune Business Insights™ in its report, titled “Referral Marketing Software Market Size, Share & COVID-19 Impact Analysis, By Deployment (Cloud and On-Premises), By Enterprise Size (Small & Medium Enterprises, and Large Enterprises), By End-user (BFSI, Retail, E-Commerce, Education, Hospitality, And Others), and Regional Forecast, 2020-2027”.

Despite having a well-established presence in their respective domains, several prominent brands and companies are leveraging the power of referrals to gain more customers. For example, the note-making platform, Evernote, has designed a referral program that not only rewards users for successfully referring others to their platform but also rewards them when their referred friend upgrades to a premium account. Similarly, the cab company, Uber, offers free rides to friends and referrals of existing riders, thus encouraging more riders to sign up. Further, Uber also offers incentives to its drivers to recruit more drivers for the company using their referral system. As a result of the widespread usage of referral platforms by big brands, the demand for referral marketing software by small and medium-sized companies is steadily rising, broadening the scope of the market in the process.
