How it works?

Ask a Friend is an embeddable app that delivers a poll creation functionality for any website. It supports multiple modes of interactions ranging from user initiated polls to predicting indecision and proactively offering to create a poll. Friends are redirected to the business website for responding to polls resulting in incremental traffic and brand exposure.

This Ask a Friend app is part of the following solution set: Shop with Friends


  • Enable visitors to post a social product poll to ask their friends a question
  • Allow friends to vote on the social product poll
  • Display compiled voting reports to visitor and friends
  • Ability to offer a ‘thank you’ incentive to friends for helping
  • Automatic notifications for every poll response
  • Template driven, customizable layout to match your brand
  • Detailed reports and analytics showing engagement, conversions, referrals, ROI etc.
  • A/B testing in show/no-show mode to accurately measure the impact
  • A/B testing in experimentation mode to find the best strategy
  • Rule-based targeting engine to control where and when the Ask-a-Friend app is shown
  • Personalization options to show different messages/offers to users based on their demographics, social profile, purchase history etc.

Referral Program Deployment

Suggested Deployment

  • Create a top level navigation option to initiate “Ask-a-Friend”. User initiated flow will avoid showing the polling option to those who already know what they want to buy
  • Show the Ask-a-Friend app on category pages where multiple products are displayed
  • Show the Ask-a-Friend app on individual product pages

Applicable verticals

Retailers and brands who sell products that have higher aesthetic appeal can benefit from the Ask-a-Friend app.
