Marketing Channels 101
In today's business world, there are many marketing channels to choose from. The simplest referral system rewards users who tell their friends about a brand, increasing trust. Influencers use their fame to reach more people. Advertisers pay for ads on platforms to catch users' attention, and affiliate marketers make money when they help sell products using tools to track their success. All of these strategies can work in web3, but they first need good products for users to share and recommend.

These experiences sound appealing, but each has its own challenges. Referrals typically require users to share links or invite codes with friends for a signup page. Influencers, on the other hand, might risk their reputation when taking on sponsored deals. Advertisers often use collected personal information to target users. Top affiliates sometimes find themselves in ongoing disputes over the money they've earned.
A more exciting approach is itching to be discovered. The power of web3 is about to change the game, so let’s dive into a whole new world of referral possibilities.
Unleashing the power of Web3
The referral and affiliate marketing industry is already a multi-billion dollar space, and the integration with Web3 technologies only amplifies its potential. The world of Web3 comes with a shared passion and excitement for decentralized technology. Buddy helps share that passion and excitement by creating a collaborative environment powered by its trustless protocol.
The protocol functions as a composable program, allowing projects to incorporate the "Create Buddy" instruction into any transaction they like. On Solana, a single transaction can have multiple instructions, even from different programs. That's the magic of Web3! From then on, buddies can be accessed through the wallet, and the referrer stays linked forever!
