The Future of Ambassador

At the beginning of October, Ambassador announced that their referral platform was being sunset and would no longer be supported as of September 2021. Since the announcement, the platform has changed hands, yet the lack of support and expertise is still a major concern, and the future of the platform remains uncertain. Since referral programs are often a critical component of an organization’s growth and acquisition strategy, many brands are eager to migrate their programs as soon as possible to keep their programs running smoothly.

What this means for Ambassador customers

Ambassador customers are now left with the decision to migrate their referral programs to another provider or risk disruption of service and missed referral revenue. This decision may come easy to some, but will depend on how important the customer experience is to their brand.

A loss of engineering continuity, in-house knowledge, and experienced technical support can introduce significant business risk and possible disruption of your referral programs, resulting in lost revenue and a poor customer experience.

A Key Consideration: If your programs suddenly go unsupported, how much referral revenue will be lost during a 3-6 month disruption while you find a new vendor?

Partnerships Manager, Adzooma

Every time we spoke to your team, you were progressing and adding features, and there seemed to be a consistent delivery against your product roadmap. In particular, our engineering team was confident that you would keep things up to date, and you had a well-documented API. When we looked at competitors, everything felt clunky, slow, and backwards.
