Designing for Word of Mouth - #14 Design that Scales - Design Bootcamp Asia

Published on: Friday, 1 December 2017

Speaker: Desmond Chua at Referral Candy

Naturally, people informally share experiences and make referrals all the time. Companies like Airbnb, Uber and Dropbox understand this, and have accelerated their growth with referrals. Yet, the potential of referrals is still largely untapped for a lot of businesses. Why is this so? What's less known about how people share? How do we design for word of mouth? Desmond will share insights, case studies and challenges from designing and marketing ReferralCandy, a solution that turbocharges referrals for businesses worldwide.
