The Referral module gives your Partners the ability to send you prospective Leads/Referrals. You can then choose to work the Referrals yourself or send them to other Partners as Leads. The Partner can then convert the Leads to Deals or close them if there's no business. It also allows you to track commissions and gives the referring Partners full visibility into the progress/status of their Referrals throughout the sales cycle.
Submitting a Referral:
Partners can submit Referrals by logging into Channeltivity and completing your Referral form or by sharing their unique Referral Link with prospects.
For Referrals submitted within Channeltivity, the configuration of your Referral Email Notifications will determine the Internal Users that are notified upon submission of the Referral.
With the Referral Links functionality enabled, Partners can generate a personalized link to share with their prospects that directs them to the Partner User's dedicated page, which includes a public-facing Referral form. Upon submission, the form automatically creates a Referral under the Partner's Channeltivity account, which then triggers an email notification to the Partner User. Your Referral Email Notifications will determine the Internal Users that are notified about the new Referral.
Public-Facing Referral Form
The Internal User can accept or reject the Referral by updating the Referral's Status. The Status field is also used to track commission payments. Any updates made to the Referral will trigger a notification to the referring Partner.
