Setting up rewards
You'll craft your rewards within SparkLoop! Their tutorial on creating rewards can be found here.
You'll be able to define all the details, including:
What the reward is
How many referrals are required to receive it
Whether it's one-time or recurring (e.g. receiving a reward for every 5 referrals, versus just for the first 5)
Think of rewards as a way to say 'thanks' to your referrers, while simultaneously providing value as an incentive!
Using the data
Once you've created a campaign in SparkLoop, an assortment of custom fields will automatically be created in your ConvertKit account.
These custom fields will be automatically updated by SparkLoop, and can be viewed from any of your subscribers' profiles.
For example, from their profile, you'll be able to view a subscriber's unique referral link, whether they themselves were referred, how many people they've referred — and more!
For an overview of what each of these custom fields means — and how to make use of them! — check out SparkLoop's guide here.
