Paypal Grew 1,650% Using Customer Referrals

Here’s How To Get Your Customers To Refer You

Did you know that PayPal’s double-sided referral marketing program, boosted the company’s growth by an unbelievable 1,650% when the industry standard year-on-year growth was between 15 to 45%?

Then Paypal’s co-founder, Peter Thiel, decided to use double-sided referral marketing to reach their “crucial mass” of 1 million users because traditional marketing strategies were “too ineffective to justify the cost.”

A double-sided referral marketing offer gives an incentive to both parties for their action, the referrer to tell and the friend to buy. 

PayPal hit 1 million users in only two years. In six years, they had reached 100 million. PayPal is on track to have 750 million customers by 2025.

PayPal's decision to forego conventional advertising for double-sided referral marketing paid off.
