HOW TO QUALIFY CUSTOMERS
Trust your instincts! If you would like a gift card from a restaurant or retail shop, they would make a great GiftRocker 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
