Anyone actually successful after getting a referral?

I see so many people ask for referrals on blind and also comments from people offering to refer to their company. I'm wondering how many of you guys were actually successful getting the job after getting a referral. I'm also curious how many people referring ended up receiving a referral bonus. Is it worth posting here for a referral? Should I just keep spamming linkedin people or maybe spend some money on a referral website?

    Referrals are a must have but there is no guarantee of anything as process is very selective. I referred 40 folks and prob got 2 or 3.

    Referral only confirms that the resume will be seen by human eyes and not get automatically rejected by a bot.
