Read our actionable guide on newsletter referral programs.
- Create and embed your referral widgets
- Connect Ghost with Viral Loops.
- Create an invitee page for collecting email using Viral Loops pages.
To do that, you’ll need the Admin API Key and the API URL from your Ghost account. To find them:
- Login to your Ghost account.
- Go to “Settings” → “Integrations”
- Name it.
Copy what you need from Ghost, go back to your Viral Loops campaign, and paste.
Keep the “Automatically add new Ghost members to Viral Loops” enabled so that everybody subscribing to your newsletter organically, automatically participates in your referral campaign.
This is important because in case a participant sends an invitation to another existing subscriber, it will be tracked as a successful referral— you don’t want that.
Once you’re all set up, click on “Connect”
Select the “Import” tab, and import your existing Ghost subscribers in your Viral Loops campaign.
- Create a new Post
Before you go.
That was it!
Starting today, you can have a referral program that runs directly from inside your newsletter emails sent via Ghost and reward your most loyal readers.
It’s really easy, and it takes only a few minutes to get your campaign live.
