How many brands should I shoutout each day and what will I get in return?
This is really up to you. Shout out as many of brands as you like as the more you share, the more karma you’ll earn so others can share you in return. As a guide though, we recommend sharing 1-2 brands per day for the entire week – some in the morning, a couple in the pm, while you’re watching Netflix…it’s entirely up to you!
Will I earn karma for shouting out non-member brands?
Absolutely! We love businesses that share other businesses naturally as part of how they communicate with their customers, but for Discover Small Week we’d love for you to focus on shouting out other DSW participants! You can find them by the DSW logo on their brand card of by using the Community filter on your desktop.
We LOVE word of mouth referrals, so if there’s a business you’d like to join our community you can send them a referral link via your Account settings once you’ve created your profile and have subscribed.
Can you guarantee me a certain number of new customers?
As with any marketing channel, no we cannot. We can say that the more shoutouts you do, the more karma you’ll earn so other brands will be able to share you – whatever you give is what you get back in return!
So get out there and shout out some other brands and you’ll quickly see how well this all works for bringing you well-targeted customers who shop with businesses like yours.
