Note that, gift certificates can be exemplary motivation features since employees and customers will work effortlessly to bring in more referrals.
2. Discounts or free services in your business- You can reward customers or employees with a large number of referrals with free services or discounts on the products and services offered at your business. As such, customers and employees will be motivated to bring in more referrals.
