GiftRocker provides Sir Speedy with a unique product set to offer shopkeepers (retail customers). Using GiftRocker, shopkeepers can sell gift certificates online and in-store; sell events or classes on-line or in-store; create loyalty programs; and create promotions for holidays and fundraisers. With each of these offerings, there are Sir Speedy revenue opportunities for print materials, marketing and consulting.
There is no cost to Sir Speedy to sell these products. This is a mutually beneficial partnership where Sir Speedy will bill for print and marketing services provided and GiftRocker will bill for transactional services. Truly a win-win relationship!
Any retail shopkeeper that wants to sell gift certificates in-store or online is a potential GiftRocker customer. GiftRocker customers include: independent restaurants, restaurant groups, salons, coffee shops, tea shops, bakeries, breweries, an auto shop and cooking schools.
HOW TO QUALIFY CUSTOMERS
Trust your instincts! If you would like a gift card from a restaurant or any shop, they would make a great GiftRocker / Sir Speedy customer. When qualifying leads, we also look at the shopkeeper’s website and Facebook page. If they do not sell gift cards on their website or the selling process requires mailing the gift card, the shopkeeper will benefit from our online gift certificates. Likewise, if you see a restaurant selling a wine tasting or cooking classes where end customers have to call in to register, the shopkeeper will benefit from online event sales. If the shopkeeper’s Facebook page has greater than 500 likes, their digital brand is strong enough to recommend selling online.
In summary, good customers are ones where:
a) You would want a gift certificate
b) They do not sell gift certificates online (or if the site sells a physical card)
c) They market events or classes online but do not sell online
d) They have a strong digital brand as indicated by Facebook likes

FURTHER MARKETING OPPORTUNITIES
Included in the GiftRocker subscription, shopkeepers can pre-sell events, run promotions and create loyalty programs. These services can be offered and in the future, provisioned by Sir Speedy using an hourly rate to bill shopkeepers. The actual time it takes to set up any of these offerings is 10-60 minutes depending on whether custom graphics are required. However, the consulting involved will require significantly more time. Also, with loyalty programs comes loyalty cards and with events come tickets. The printing revenue of these should be similar to the printing revenue of basic gift cards.
