Refer a Friend Website Programs in South Africa

by | Oct 17, 2022 | Uncategorized | 0 comments

Similar in many ways to affiliate marketing, “refer a friend” programs or referral marketing is a valid way to monetize and earn from your content, communication and social circles. For example, via your website, social media, influencer marketing, email marketing, or direct messaging.

You or your business will earn a commission (either fixed-fee or percentage based) for referring other South Africans to valid products and services if they make a purchase or hire from a certain company.

Importantly, your referral marketing efforts should not be spammy or deceptive. Adopting dirty tactics like mass cold emailing, bulk SMSes, and false offers are an easy way to get yourself banned and your money forfeited from a refer a friend website.

In this article, I cover several refer a friend website programs in South Africa. These include those which I have used and earned from personally across my portfolio of affiliate marketing websites and client projects.
