Why referrals are a lucky find for retailer Trouva

Angela Southall
By Angela Southall — January 5, 2017

Trouva, meaning "lucky find", is an online marketplace for independent boutiques. It was set up to help these retailers compete against the bigger players by offering a global shopfront.

The business has seen phenomenal growth since it's launch in 2015 and Trouva chose to work with Mention Me from the outset. They knew that the products they featured were exceptionally shareable and that referrals should form a core strand of their marketing strategy.

In peak months they have seen share rates of over 20%, meaning that more and more people are becoming aware of this exciting brand.
