Reduce Your Customer Acquisition Costs


Automated Referral Programs

Implement an automated referral program using Ambassador, where current customers can easily refer friends and family through personalized links shared via email, social media, or messaging apps. Reward both the referrer and the referred with incentives such as discounts on their energy bills, exclusive merchandise, or even contributions towards renewable energy credits. This strategy significantly lowers acquisition costs by turning satisfied customers into a powerful sales force.


Targeted Social Proof Campaigns

Use Ambassador to capture and showcase customer testimonials and success stories on your website and social media platforms. Highlight the financial savings, increased property value, and positive environmental impact of installing your solar solutions. Prospective customers seeing real-life benefits directly from their peers can be more convincing than traditional marketing efforts, encouraging them to make the switch at a lower cost to you.


Engage Influencers and Local Ambassadors

Identify and partner with local influencers and environmental advocates who can share their experiences with your solar solutions through Ambassador. This approach taps into the influencer's follower base, expanding your reach and credibility with a lower investment compared to traditional advertising channels.

Tiered Rewards for Ongoing Referrals

Develop a tiered reward system within Ambassador where customers gain more valuable rewards as they refer more people. This could include escalating discounts, free energy audits, or even upgrades to their solar systems for multiple successful referrals. Encouraging ongoing referrals not only helps acquire new customers but also keeps existing customers engaged and loyal to your brand.


Exclusive Access for Top Referrers

Offer your most successful referrers exclusive access to new products, services, or community solar projects before they're available to the general public. This recognition not only rewards their efforts but also incentivizes them to continue their advocacy and remain loyal customers.


Customer Milestones Recognition

Celebrate milestones such as the anniversary of a solar panel installation or reaching certain energy production thresholds. Use Ambassador to automate the sending of personalized congratulatory messages and rewards, such as additional energy credits or exclusive brand merchandise, enhancing customer satisfaction and loyalty.


Educational Content and Workshops

Provide valuable educational content and workshops on energy efficiency, new solar technologies, or sustainable living tips. Reward customers for participating and sharing these resources with others through Ambassador. Engaging customers with content relevant to their interests encourages them to stay connected with your brand and consider additional services or upgrades, increasing their CLTV.


With Ambassador, I’ve cut the time it takes me to track, manage, and fulfill referrals by an order of 10. And, as we’ve grown, the platform has grown alongside us. The impact it’s had on simplifying the entire process for us — and our customers — has been incredible.
