Vancouver's Wishpond has launched their new cross-platform offers application with a bang, with Canada’s largest yoga chain YYoga using Social Offers to create an successful promotion for the opening of their new studio location.
YYoga offered their Facebook fans unlimited use of their new Kitsilano studio for the 18 days following the opening for just $25, a 65% discount over the usual rate. Opening day saw a queue of people eager to redeem their coupon and get registered for their first class.
“Social Offers was simple to use, and we saw incredible results” said Matt Fraser, President & COO of YYoga. “We reached our maximum of 1000 people participating in the offer in just 2 days, and added more than 600 fans to our Kitsilano Facebook Page.”
Wishpond Social Offers is a cost-effective way for businesses to create and run their own limited-time special offers. As people participate they share the offer with their friends and followers on Facebook and other popular social networks, helping the offer spread.
Businesses are able to create and publish their offer in less than ten minutes using Wishpond’s simple interface. They are able to specify all the parameters of the offer: the duration, the discount, the minimum and maximum number of participants, and the redemption details. The deals spread organically through all the major social networks (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google+), and by email as people participate.
Wishpond launched last year at GROW's Launch Party in Vancouver.
