The launch of revolutionary new social commerce app FriendsWith is about to shake up the online retail shopping and affiliate marketing experience for both creators and brands.
Founded by New Zealand-based entrepreneurs Daniel Hubbard & Paige Patten, FriendsWith seamlessly bridges the gap between offering a Marketplace and a Social Media application. It offers something truly unique to the online shopping and affiliate earning market.
The social media part of FriendsWith allows all users to join an affiliate programme and earn on their shared content whilst organically promoting and inspiring sales for partnering brands.
Most current affiliate marketing programs are only available or useful for influencers with large followings.
FriendsWith however, is opening up the door for any creator to share their wardrobe and lifestyle with other like-minded people who enjoy their style and taste.
There’s no complicated affiliate sign-up page and even the least tech-savvy person can use it and earn.
There are 2 ways to earn. Firstly, by sharing a photo of an item you see and like. The amount earnt depends on the engagement with the external website link.
The second way is through promoting a product you have purchased and telling your followers the key details about the item. For every purchase made by another user, you will earn 1.5 per cent – 5.0 per cent of the sale instantly.
The marketplace is uniquely built though a dedicated website synced to the FriendsWith app meaning users can shop on both the website and app.
This makes the entire experience more accessible and easier for those who prefer to shop their items on a larger screen.
When shopping through the website, the app will automatically encourage the user to share their loved content to the app and earn rewards from the affiliate program.
FriendsWith benefits both the retail vendor and the shopper in equal measures. Brands will gain access to 2 new sales channels, that are seamlessly synced meaning there is no effort involved for them to join.
For users, FriendsWith offers an innovative platform where they can authentically express themselves and share their shopping preferences with others who match their personal aesthetic.
Whilst many of us turn to the social media giants such as Instagram for fashion inspiration, our feeds are usually flooded with all sorts of content!
FriendsWith App was created to make the experience even more bespoke to the user. It can be used not only for inspiration on how to curate the best outfit, but also as a size guide.
FriendsWith isn’t about becoming the most aspirational influencer out there or being paid by brands to promote a product. It’s made for everyone and provides a platform for authentic sharing. Users know that what they are seeing promoted by other users has been bought because they genuinely love it.
