Best practices

Suggestion: To boost visibility with fellow contributors and viewers here on the Forum, after generating your Referral link, add it to your profile by including text like below in your About Me text field:

My referral link for Retool: referral-link. Sign up for Retool with it and get a 20% discount for 6 months!

More about how this works: https://docs.retool.com/org-users/concepts/cloud-referral-program

Additionally, we recommend a few things to help you get the most value out of the referral program:

  • Cast a wide net: Retool supports a broad set of use cases, and most businesses have at least a potential need for Retool. You never know who might benefit from Retool and help you earn that referral reward. Take advantage of our LinkedIn and Twitter buttons to share Retool broadly.
  • Reach out directly: being proactive and personal in your outreach will help you reach the people in your network who are more likely to have a need for Retool. Take some time to think through family, friends, former colleagues, and partners who may benefit from Retool.
  • Explain Retool when needed: Retool's value isn't always clear to new users, so a brief explanation of how Retool can save them time / money or how Retool works can be helpful.
  • If possible, help your referrals build their first app or provide similar support. As you likely remember, building that first app is the key to getting hooked on Retool!


If you have questions about the program design that aren’t answered in the docs, email referrals@retool.com directly or reach out to support. If you run into any technical issues with your PartnerStack account, visit PartnerStack's support resources.


Super exciting! Thanks @sewedy :slight_smile: Glad we've launched a way to thank both referrers and referrees for building with Retool.
