Why are referral contests excellent marketing for your brand?

Referral contests can create a viral effect that is much needed to build and grow your community fast. Moreover, a referral contest is word-of-mouth marketing, which is popular among users. Why? Because people will recommend you to other people, to their family, friends, and coworkers. They are thinking: if my friend trusted these guys, then I can trust them too.

Referral contests are especially popular among the crypto exchanges. For example:

  • In April, Bluebelt Exchange organized 200,000 BBXC Airdrop and Referral Contest. According to its website the contest “amassed over 4,000 opened user accounts in Bluebelt Exchange, contributing to a total of 10, 500 opened user accounts since the launching of the exchange!”
  • Nash, a fintech company, is also conducting a referral contest, where participants can win up to $100,000 in bitcoin. I’m sure you’ll agree: This is a great way to attract more users.

However, this type of marketing isn’t reserved for crypto exchanges only. Any crypto/blockchain startup can conduct a referral contest. And one of the best ways to start with that is to distribute referral airdrops.

A referral airdrop means that a participant gets additional tokens when referring airdrop to a friend. When a participant shares a referral link with friends and then they sign up, he gets a reward.

For example, Dukascoin is conducting an airdrop worth of 5 DUK+ tokens (~€ 5). And if you refer the airdrop to a friend, you can earn 5 DUK+ tokens (~€ 5) for every referral.


Researchers have found that people are 4 times more likely to buy when referred by a friend. Referral marketing is powerful, and you should take advantage of it. And in case you need help with conducting a referral contest, feel free to contact us. We look forward to working with you.
