Points Program Rewards Shoppers for Social Media Activities
South Bend, IN -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/18/2012 -- Online retailer www.WorkingPerson.com recently launched a new program just in time for the holidays that rewards customers for participating in online social media activity and product reviews. Like traditional rewards programs, customers earn points for making online purchases. But this program breaks new ground by awarding points for reviewing products and promoting both the retailer and products through various social media outlets such as Twitter, Facebook and Google+. Top rewards earners can even participate in a friendly competition while roasting chestnuts to see how their rewards earnings stack up against other top members.
The rewards program is the latest online innovation by Working Person’s Store, a retailer of workwear, work boots and safety supplies. Working Person’s Store has been recognized for having one of the world’s most well-executed websites and was recently named one of the top 400 mobile retailers.
“This new program is a natural extension of our core commitment to customer service” says Eric Deniger, CEO of Working Person’s Store. “Let’s be honest, in today’s competitive market, it’s not enough to just sell quality products at good prices. What sets us apart is our constant drive to better serve our customers. This program encourages our customers to interact – to communicate with us and the rest of the world about how they use our products. The way we see it, there is no better promotion than a personal recommendation from one of our customers. We value the opinions and input of our customers and are glad to pass along rewards for their efforts and feedback. And what better time to give back than over the Holidays.”
How the program works: Participants sign up online (and receive 250 points for doing so) and then earn points with each dollar spent. But customers also earn points when they engage in these social media activities:
- Review a product, 100 points
