One of the most frequently asked questions we receive from loyal PartsMarket customers is “How can I help promote PartsMarket to other industry professionals?” Well, for all those patient customers that have been making calls, sending emails, and talking about us at dinner parties, we finally have a better way for you to help spread the word.
We’re calling it PartsMarketing.
We are pleased to announce that the paint is dry and the dents have been buffed out of our brand new referral program. We’ve been working on it for a few months now and wanted to roll it out with enough time for customers to earn some well-deserved rewards in time for the holidays.
So how does the referral program work? Let’s dive right in.
First, the goal for us was always to make it super simple to enroll, share, and earn. We went out of our way to minimize the many hoops most referral programs have customers jump through. We wanted it to be as easy as 1, 2, 3.
Step 1: Visit and enroll in the referral program at www.partsmarket.com/refer
Step 2: Copy your unique code and link and distribute it to your friends via email, Facebook, or any other social media account.
Step 3: Monitor your referrals and earn rewards for new PartsMarket customers that purchase auto parts from our website.
How Do I Enroll?
The Referral Program page tells you all about the program itself.
Toward the top of the page, you’ll see a small form that asks for your name and email address. Once you fill in the information and click on “Register Now,” you will be immediately given your referral links with the option to share PartsMarket via social media. You then also have the option to copy and paste those links and/or obtain the information automatically sent to your email inbox.
Do I Have To Be a PartsMarket Customer?
Well, we want to encourage loyal customers and fans of our company to participate first and foremost. However, there is no reason someone that has a vast amount of industry contacts should not be able to enroll in this opportunity. So the answer is no. If you have no need for auto parts yourself, but would still like to seize an opportunity to earn our rewards, we welcome you to register and tell the world about PartsMarket!
What can I earn?
We are offering three types of rewards right now.
- Amazon gift cards
- PartsMarket discounts and credit
- Cash (in the form of an American Express gift card)
In the near future, we hope to offer even more rewards – even some PartsMarket swag. But for now, we feel the Amazon gift cards trump most other referral program rewards. We even made a flyer to promote that fact.
How Do I Know When I Earn a Reward?
You’ll always be able to check your PartsMarketing account to see whether your referrals have registered and purchased yet or not. But the best part is that you won’t have to. We know you’re busy so we will be notifying you every time one of your referrals converts into a paying PartsMarket customer. We will proactively reach out and have the gift card or credit sent directly to the same email address you used to enroll in the program.
How Many Rewards Can I Earn?
That’s a good question and one that we are still working on improving. Because we want PartsMarketing to feel like a VIP program, we will be engaging with any customers that are driving value individually. We will reach out and let you know that your referrals are earning you rewards so that we don’t limit your abilities to earn more. We will keep the conversations fluid until we are able to create a tiered system in our referral reporting technology that will show you the many different levels you can reach.
Well, once you enroll, the next step is to start spreading the word. As soon as you do that, I promise we’ll have new developments and new opportunities for you to earn more and spread our messaging even further.
We’ll even be unveiling opportunities to promote PartsMarket within one channel. Our Invite-Only Facebook Referral Program, for example, is a great example of that.
We’d genuinely like to thank our loyal customers and VIP professionals that have waited patiently for us to roll out this red carpet for them. We hope you are as excited about this opportunity as we are to announce it. We look forward to working together to save auto professionals more time, money, and stress when acquiring their auto parts.
Let’s start driving traffic! Here’s to a bright future together.
