A product originally launched by white-label ticketing and registration business, TicketSocket, has officially been spun off as its own company due to the overwhelmingly positive impact it has had on initial users.
Ice Cream Social, run by members of TicketSocket and other payments industry veterans, has launched to bring dynamic incentive-based social sharing to online businesses to help them find new customers through word of mouth.
“The results have been far above what we’ve seen accomplished by traditional social media advertising and at a fraction of the cost”, said Mark Miller, CEO. “We allow our clients to incentivize their already happy client base to find more customers that look just like them by promoting their purchase and amplifying social proof.”
As online advertising through social media platforms continues to grow, advertisement costs have come along with it. Studies also show that fewer consumers than ever before are seeing these ads due to the overwhelming amount of placements, driving costs even higher for organizations to gain market share.
“People trust those they know, and by rewarding the purchaser for inviting their friends and rewarding those that take advantage of the referral, we’ve found a way to tap into that”, said Miller. “Ultimately, the business benefits the most by being the recipient of new customers that will ideally come back time and time again.”
Within just months of launching, Ice Cream Social has over 100 million dollars in payments under management and has converted more than 10,000 new transactions for its Ecommerce clients through their cutting edge social invite tools.
Ice Cream Social integrates with every major shopping cart, from Shopify and WooCommerce to Square Online, BigCommerce, Magento and more. In addition, they can also work with custom stores and sites.
