With Refersion and Octane AI, you can send Facebook messages to members of your affiliate program.
With Refersion to manage your affiliate program, your approved affiliates that register or your manually-added affiliates will immediately be added to an email list when Refersion is integrated with Klaviyo or Mailchimp.
