WooCommerce, the world's most popular e-commerce platform (according to research provided by BuiltWith) has announced a new partnership with social commerce platform Social Rebate. Starting today, WooCommerce users will have access to Social Rebate's unique social commerce plug-in, which allows brands to reward customers with instant cash rebates for promoting them on social networks.
"WooCommerce is always on the lookout for the best ways to boost sales for our users," said Joel Bronkowski, WooCommerce Business Development Manager. "Social Rebate won us over with their unique ability to drive new customers to businesses through social commerce, we're happy to offer this revolutionary tool to everyone using WooCommerce."
Social Rebate has risen to prominence in the emerging world of social commerce, which integrates the world of e-commerce with consumers' social networks. According to Nielsen, ninety-two percent of consumers around the world say they trust earned media, such as word-of-mouth and recommendations from friends and family, above all other forms of advertising. Recommendations from friends and connections carry more weight with consumers because they are largely seen as being much more credible, relevant and personal when compared to other marketing and advertising like banner ads or Facebook ads. For these reasons, Social Rebate has been able to track an impressive 30% conversion rate for the businesses that use the service.
"This partnership is an exciting step for us," said Social Rebate CEO Tom Larkin. "We have been able to help many small and medium-sized businesses profitably grow through our platform, and now the vast number of businesses using WooCommerce will be able to do the same. At Social Rebate, we believe word-of-mouth represents the strongest form of marketing and we developed our tools to reward customers for recommending the brands that they love to their social networks."
Promotions and tutorials are available today, and more will be released as the partnership continues to roll out.
