The Referrals widget makes it easy for your happy customers to recommend your business directly from your website.

How to add the Referrals widget to you website

These instructions are for non-Wordpress websites. For Wordpress see instructions further down:

  1. Select the Referrals widget

  2. Copy the code provided and paste it into your website in a place that it would be easy for your customers to find

Using Wordpress?

  1. Search for "NiceJob" in the plugin directory (

  2. Install and activate the plugin. A new NiceJob menu will appear on the admin sidebar menu.

  3. Copy your Company ID from NiceJob company profile page, and paste into the relevant field.

  4. Save the Company ID, it will be automatically used in the shortcode.

  5. Next go to the rich text editor (make sure you are in "classic mode"). You will see little NiceJob logos in the tool bar for each of the widgets available for you to install. When you hover over the logos it tells you which widget each logo represents. Click on the Referrals widget, the shortcode will appear in the text editor and you can put it wherever you want the widget to appear.

    Alternatively, if you can't find the rich text editor, you can use your custom builder to add a text box, then copy the Referrals shortcode from your NiceJob plugin page (also laid out below) into the text editor or a shortcode field.
