With the holiday shopping season already upon us (notice how quickly Halloween decorations magically morph into Christmas décor these days?), we’re all surfing online and/or standing in line. And social media remains a major consumer resource. The good news is that Facebook is more popular than YouTube or Pinterest when it comes to holiday shopping preferences. The bad news that if you’re “old” (think baby boomer), you’re probably not using either, anyway.
A recent survey from multichannel loyalty and engagement platform PunchTab revealed that 75 percent of moms do NOT intend to use social media for back-to-school shopping this year. And yes, that includes Facebook. Whaaat?
Facebook has pretty much decimated organic reach for brands – and this is only expected to get worse. But you’ve invested SO much time (and money) in growing that Facebook fan base, so walking away from it should be your very last option – particularly as, according to a new study from PunchTab, there’s hope for you yet, squirrel.
Yes, we’re talking about Millennials (you may have heard of them) and they have billions to spend and they’re SUPER active on social media. You just need to know how to attract them! (Hint: This post will tell you how.)
Fast casual restaurant chains giving away lunch is far from a new concept, but the giveaways are usually tied to purchases. In the case of a sweepstakes created by Cosi and brand loyalty and engagement platform PunchTab, winners are rewarded for sharing the sweepstakes and other special offers via Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and mobile check-ins.
One-half of mothers on Facebook said they would share brands’ content on the social network in exchange for rewards, while 57 percent said they would like brands’ pages, according to the results of a survey of 647 moms across the U.S. by brand loyalty and engagement platform PunchTab.
PunchTab is adding a new-school mobile component to its old-school approach to consumer loyalty.
