SocialTwist’s widget lets online retailers combine social media and quality word-of-mouth marketing with a rewards plan to further encourage shoppers to spread the word about your products.
In the e-commerce industry, a little saying goes hand-in-hand with referral and rewards programs. “Your next best customer is your current best customer’s friend.”
Refer-a-friend programs come in all shapes and sizes and are used by a number of e-commerce Web sites. With the impact social media has had on e-commerce, this year we’re seeing the trend for online retailers to move their traditional, and somewhat stagnant, refer-a-friend campaigns to social media platforms.
SocialTwist, a company that creates widgets to combine marketing messages with visitor referrals, offers a new program to online retailers. Dubbed the Tell-a-Friend Holiday Sales Booster (TAF HSB), it combines social media word-of-mouth referrals and rewards to help e-commerce sites boost their sales this holiday season.
