Once you’ve customized your referral hub and designed it to match the tone and feel of your brand, it’s time to decide where you want it to be hosted.
SparkLoop offers two options for hosting your referral hub:
On a page hosted by SparkLoop.
On your own custom page.
Hosted by SparkLoop
To host your referral hub on a SparkLoop page, you don’t need to do anything except customize a few simple settings.
To do so, click Publish under Referral Hub options and select On a SparkLoop Hosted Page.
From there, you have the following options:
Favicon: Select an image to appear in your browser bar when someone accesses your website.
Support label: Let your subscribers know they can reach you for support.
Support email: Enter your support email address here.
Footer: Include a footer label and link, if you like.
If you’d prefer to host the referral hub on your own website or on a custom page, SparkLoop provides you with a high level of customization options, making it super simple for you to change the order of the elements, design a referral hub that’s unique to you, and that fits seamlessly within the rest of your website.
Creating a custom referral hub page is easy. To get started, simply click Publish under referral hub options and select On my own Custom Page.
Next, you’ll be prompted to enter the URL of the page where you’d like to embed the referral hub.
To embed the referral hub widget on this page, follow these steps:
Make sure the SparkLoop tracking script is installed on your website. If you didn’t install the script sitewide, make sure it’s installed on this page.

Paste the code snipped on to the page where you want your referral hub to be.
Publish the changes to your website.
How to embed individual elements
Alternatively, you can embed each of the referral hub elements individually on a page. For instance, you may want to show only the sharing links or referral stats, but not the rewards.
To embed individual elements, you need to paste the correct
div tag on your page exactly where you want the widget to appear.
The three individual elements are:
1. The Rewards element
To embed the rewards element, use the tag
2. The Sharing element
To embed the sharing element, use the tag
3. The Stats element
To embed the stats element, use the tag
What working with these elements allows you to do is take any page of your website and turn it into an instant referral hub, giving you as much flexibility and control as you choose to have.
Once it’s all set up, you’re ready to share the link to the referral hub in your newsletter. Click on Email Link and hit Copy to Clipboard to use the link in your newsletter emails, and let your subscribers take it from there!
