Traffic is the total number of times someone has clicked on a share link for any of your programs in the selected time period. This is a good indicator of organic traffic that is being generated to your site or service via your programs.

Note: If you are not using share links in any of your programs, then this chart will not display any data.


Goals shows the number of times a goal was achieved across all of your programs in the selected time period.

This metric helps you gauge the overall health of your programs. An increasing trend in goals shows greater adoption and general success of the program whereas a decreasing trend could indicate a need to increase visibility of the program, a change in marketing strategy or reviewing the structure of the program itself.

This figure may include referrals flagged by the Fraud Protection system, if they triggered program goals.

Converted Referrals

Converted referrals shows the number of unique referred friends that have signed up and then completed the referral process.

This metric is a key measure of health for your referral program. Each converted referral represents a new customer for your brand, which indicates how much new businesses your referral program is driving. By comparing the cost of the program with the value of each converted referral, you can assess the ROI of your program.

Conversion Goals

This metric is an important indicator of the success of a program. A rise in goals means your program is encouraging users to complete the desired action. A lack of growth, or a decline, means you should consider promoting your program, adjusting your goals, or testing out different program rules.

This figure may include referrals flagged by the Fraud Protection system, if they triggered conversion goals.

Rewards Redeemed

This graph shows the total count of rewards redeemed by participants in all of your programs for the selected time period.

This metric allows you to quickly review how many rewards your programs are paying out to participants. It is also useful in assessing the success of your program, and whether or not the chosen reward(s) structure is maximizing incentive without impacting profit.

Program Breakdown

This section shows the key analytics metrics broken down by individual programs, based on the selected timeframe. These numbers mirror the graphs above but are broken down into each individual program.

As it is possible for a participant to be part of multiple programs, please note that the number of members for each individual program may not align with the all-time figure for Total Members.
