Have you ever gone shopping, just to realize you had a coupon you could have used, but darn it, you left it at home or can’t remember where you saw the savings? Yeap. Happens to me ALL the time and I hate it.
Ya’ll know I love saving money any way I can and when I get to the store and realize I forgot my coupons or digital savings, I die a little inside. True story. But with the new Text2Save, I don’t have to worry about that anymore. I’m saving all the money I can and don’t have to worry about leaving anything at home.
What is Text2Save?
Text2Save is a new way to not only save big money while you shop, but save the offer when you are ready to buy. I realize people might have some reservations about it, so let me clear that up right now.
I Trust Text2Save
Thanks to working closely with ShopShare Network, I have the insider scoop on how Text2Save works. ShopShare does their due diligence to make sure they are offering something that benefits everyone. Lots of research went into this program before the launch. Lawyers and compliance teams, and all the boring things necessary to make sure my audience receives valuable offers from brands you love and only when you give your express permission. It’s a convenient way of shopping, save the offer for later, and/or share with it your friends.
What’s in it for me?
Well, I’m not sure if you knew this but there are millions of bloggers in the US alone. On a daily basis, we are driven to provide our audience with valuable information and product recommendations. We aren’t professional sales people, we are doing what we love and trying to make a living doing it. The blogger community has gotten more and more competitive as advertisers demand more and more performance from us, more likes, more clicks, more comments, more, and more, and more. The net result is dollars over quality, and we aren’t down for that. Content should be inspired and not a volume based business, but the reality is, it has quickly become that.
Text2Save by ShopShare Network allows me to more wisely choose what content I want to write about, while earning income sharing about brands and hot deals that I CHOOSE via social media or on my blog!
How Does It Work?
When you opt-in to Text2Save, ShopShare Network sends instructions to your mobile device on how to redeem the offer, with my affiliate tracking link that allows me to earn a small commission on anything purchased, at no extra cost to you. In fact, ShopShare is negotiating hard to provide some of the best deals available exclusively to their blogger network.
This is a convenient form of direct response advertising. Remember this:
Call this 1-800 number and receive 50% off. If you call in within 24 hours you’ll get double your order. Blah, blah, blah.
Now, texting has replaced phone calls! Text2Save is an efficient and effective way to deliver the offer directly to your mobile device, save money on the brands and products you love, and be able to actually find the offer when you are ready to use it. There are expiration dates but don’t worry because ShopShare’s Text2Save program ensures you know what you are signing up for!
How does it work? (Example ONLY)
1. I will post promotions on my blog or social media channels
- Text TRIP120 to 12345
- You can expect to see disclosures when I post a promotion: USA Only. Message & data rates may apply. You agree to receive information and product promotions up to 4 automated text messages per month from TravelBrand.com. Consent is not a condition of purchase. Text STOP to 77453 to cancel anytime.
2. A text message will be sent within a few minutes asking you to reply YES to confirm you want to receive information about a specific offer.
3. Click on the link at the bottom to redeem offer and use promotion code at checkout to ensure you receive the discount.
4) A reminder message may be sent so don’t be alarmed, promotions generally don’t last long so I want to ensure you take advantage.
Reasons to Use Text2Save
Exclusive savings – In most cases, the coupon codes offered through Text2Save are exclusive and larger than what you will find elsewhere.
Always with you – How many times do you have that piece of mail with a coupon code on it with you when you want to buy the item? Or, you remember seeing a great code somewhere, but can’t find it once you’re ready to buy. Finding a current code online isn’t always easy. With Text2Save the code is in your text messages. And I’m willing to bet your phone is always with you.
Customized offers – The keywords to text are niche-specific, so you’ll only get deals on what you’re interested in.
No spam – To run Text2Save offers on the brand’s side, much compliance is necessary. That means you can read exactly what you are signing up for. The disclosure message will say exactly how many texts you will receive, and you can believe it. Compliance is not something anyone wants to mess with.
Opt out anytime – There’s clear messaging on how to opt out easily at any time. If you signed up for more than one promotion and the short code, otherwise known as the number you text to, and enter STOP, you will be opted-out of all promotions associated with that number. You can choose to opt-in again when you see an offer you like.
Advertising continues to evolve with technology. Text2Save is not a gimmick or spammy trick. It’s simply a way to reach people where they are nowadays – their phones. Consumers can reap the rewards in big savings. Influencers can participate to earn affiliate money. It’s a promising platform that we can all feel comfortable embracing!
