Making the most of your Viral Boost:

Whether you’re collecting leads through landing pages or opt in forms, you first want to make sure that your copy includes the right messaging.

Open your thank you page editor. The thank you page is what people will see immediately after they sign up. You’ve already convinced them to sign up to your campaign, now it’s time to entice them to share your campaign with their friends!

Use your thank you page to thank your leads for signing up, introduce or expand on any incentives you’re offering, and encourage them to share your page with their friends/family. From our experience, the 2 main ways that people share are via Facebook and Twitter, so if you include no other social media sites on your thank you page, we highly recommend at least including these two.

Be sure you clearly define your rewards on your thank you page. We offer many different referral styles, multi-tiered rewards, leaderboards, single referral goals – which you choose is a matter of personal preference, but in all cases you want to make it clear to your users what you’re offering.

The real power behind Viral Boost comes from sharing via social media. Make sure you update your social share information for the various social media sites to fully maximize your Viral Boost potential.
