Ok, I think I finally figured out how to make the loyalty rewards program app thingie at the Seraphin Station storefront do most of what I wanted it to do. I had to get a little creative with one of the rewards and I don’t actually know if it’s gonna work the way I have it set up or not.
And that’s why I need testers. So I’ve slapped a whole ton of bonuses and freebies on this thing to try to lure some folks in there so I can get some insight into what is all screwed up and what is working ok etc.
So you show up on the site and you should see a widget for the program. It will invite you to sign in/create an account and it will give you points for that.
Then you should see a notification that there’s a “Flash Bonus” for points earned through purchases from now until
11 a.m. 11 p.m. on 6/29 (I extended it – well, tacked a second identical one onto the end of the first one to run another 12 hours ’cause this never cross-posted to social media — there’s still something wrong with my WordPress connections to FB etc, sigh).
So during the bonus period, you get whatever points you would normally get per dollar spent but you also get 50 bonus points on top of that if you spend $20.
Then it will give you the option to get a bunch more points for filling out a profile, visiting a web page, stuff like that. Just takes a few seconds (at least the ones I tested only took a few seconds).
So yeah, it’s one of those things where you earn points for dollars spent and can cash them in for goodies, but it’s *also* set up to give a whole bunch of points for stuff that does not require spending money. ‘Cause I need y’all to go up in that thing and push buttons and try to break it, ’cause if it’s gonna break, I want it to be now and not later lol
But you should be able to get enough points for stuff like free shipping easily, without having to spend money. Plus one of the signup thingies gives you a percent off coupon right away even if you don’t feel like pushing all the buttons to get all the points. And you can also get points for referrals and for Etsy purchases
So this should legitimately feel like an actual bonus or reward or cool thing and not just some pain in the ass bunch of hoops you have to jump through for no good reason. That’s the goal anyway. And I don’t have anything set to expire, so you don’t have to be in a hurry to use them.
I ordered a bunch of essential oils, by the way, to replace stuff I had to throw out, and they should come in a day or two, so I should be having a lot more formulas available very soon.
So go play with the new loyalty rewards app thingie if you feel like it and do let me know if you see anything funky that I need to fix.
