A referral link is a unique identifier that people receive when they sign up for your product, service, or email list.

For instance:  www.companyxyz.com/referral=123456789

The first part of the referral link represents your domain or brand name.

The second part of the referral link is the unique identifier assigned to the person who has joined your referral program.

Referral links are an integral part of a referral marketing campaign as they track which of your users, customers, and subscribers have invited their friends to join your company.
