Newsletter creators and digital media companies who choose SparkLoop get on average 2.3x more referrals, 3.7x more cost effectiveness, and save hours each week on setup and boring manual work.

That’s why serious newsletter publishers and media companies upgrade to SparkLoop from tools like Friendbuy every week… and why no one has ever gone in the opposite direction.

Why move?

Generic referral tools like Friendbuy were built to work well for ecommerce and SaaS, not newsletters. And it shows.

Users who try Friendbuy before switching to SparkLoop often tell us how they felt like the platform was fighting against them, not working for them.

How even basic newsletter integration took days of manual work and custom development.

At SparkLoop, we only do newsletter referral programs.

If that's your goal, here’s why you should consider switching:

1. With SparkLoop all of your subscribers can share their referral link straight from your emails with 1-click. Just like Morning Brew.

2. In SparkLoop, referrals are tracked anywhere on your site. And our two-way data sync means no manual work for you.

3. You can rely on our best-in-class fraud prevention system to ensure only genuine, good-fit subscribers count as referrals.

Users who move to SparkLoop from Friendbuy often mention fraud and time wasted manually verifying referrals as a key reason for switching

4. You have the full flexibility you'd expect from a pro tool. Including using your own forms, designs, and fully white-label.

Friendbuy users are restricted to branded forms and limited landing page/design options. Making it impossible to run a 'true' Morning Brew-style referral program.

5. At SparkLoop you'll receive priority email support. We handle most support requests within minutes. And we love to go the extra mile with free onboarding and strategy calls.

How long will it take?

You can upgrade to SparkLoop in less than 27 minutes. No code or complicated Zapier hacks necessary.

It's as easy as exporting a CSV file from Friendbuy... we handle everything else!
