Many applications and platforms in the social world, including video and photo (picplz - love it!) are using geolocation for customer loyalty programs. Well, as they should because social networking is all about the people - right?
In 2009 Shopkick was created. Yes, they still have a lot of work to do with adding shops, rewards, offers with fast and easy technology (coming soon - linking your Loyalty Cards!). But, it is the first mobile application that goes beyond a check-in (or special nearby bonus).
It’s simple. Get rewarded for the things you love to buy (scan the products) and the places you like to go. Collect your “Kickbucks” for cool stuff like instant gift cards to your favorite shops, fantastic merchandise (Skullcandy earbuds, Coach handbags, True Religion jeans, and more!), travel and cool must-have gadgets!
No, this is not a PR or marketing advertising message for Shopkick. I have zero relation to anyone working at, or with the geolocation superheroes. I’m simply a fan. I am a loyal customer that likes to be rewarded - otherwise, I’m shopping for the next best bargain.
Oh, about geolocation. Expect to see more applications to apply the feature. Why? There’s so much marketers and advertisers can learn about YOU! Don’t forget - social networking is about the people.
