LinkedIn will allow you to place links, which can include UTM or other tracking codes. Followed by any other site.

Let me know if you're ever interested in influencer marketing (as opposed to straight referrals). :)

I have been KickOffLabs (http://www.kickofflabs.com/) for viral marketing with ref codes. I also looked into a bunch of other options:

Launch Effect (Wordpress theme) - launcheffectapp.com <--- very popular options and cheap
Prefinery - prefinery.com

I got to tell you that Kickofflabs is extremely impressive. Great themes (and ability to implement uour own HTML/CSS), amazing support and powerful analytics.

We have built something like this for our app (which we plan to launch later this month). 
I am curious if Friendbuy works only for physical products? Do you use it for apps selling in app stores?

Geoff,

I am the CTO at Friendbuy (http://www.friendbuy.com) and we make the exact product you are asking for. We allow sharing via email, facebook, twitter and personal url. Also, we can handle reward fulfillment or call your system if you want to issue points or credit.

Best,
Daniel Ice

You can use Friendbuy to track any kind of transaction or event. It is not limited to the sale of physical products.

Looks like kickoff labs wins for now.  Ambassador wants a 20% cut of the referral in addition to their fee.
