By Angela Southall — March 13, 2019 -

Working with over 350 leading brands to power their referral programmes means selecting the finalists for this year's coveted MeTime Referral Marketing Awards has been a tricky process!

Covering a whole spectrum of industries, from Travel to Finance and Fashion to Food, no two programmes are the same. Each combines a unique blend of incentive, creative and copy to tap into the psychology of their particular demographic and drive brand advocacy.

Next week we are hosting our annual referral summit - MeTime - where we get together with our clients to share best practice, listen to panel discussions and learn how to take referral to the next level.

And the culmination of the event will see the brands who have excelled in delivering stand-out referral campaigns, scoop our hotly contested awards!

Here we showcase those brands who have made it to our shortlist; They've all delivered top notch refer-a-friend campaigns in terms of testing, innovation and integration.
