Artisan Marketplace ArtFire.com Adds Commenting Capability to Items and New Commenter Discount Feature
Artisan marketplace ArtFire.com rewards social participation of users with new discount comment feature. Sellers on the site are now able to reward patrons for socially sharing their products.
- (1888PressRelease) March 05, 2012 - Commenting and sharing has become a part of our communal online experience. From Facebook to most articles and blog posts, we are encouraged to express ourselves. ArtFire.com now has a new way for shoppers to interact: almost every item on the site can be commented on by any visitor. Not only can visitors and members comment, they can earn discounts in the form of a percentage-off the price of the item for doing so.
All comments made on items are moderated and do not show up on the site until they are approved by the seller. In order to encourage commenting and provide a benefit to customers, each individual seller now has the option to provide a discount when a visitor comments. Commenting discounts can be set on an item-by-item basis or as blanket percentage off for the entire shop. Once a comment is made, the discounted price is shown to the visitor who can take advantage of the discount any time during the next four hours.
This added level of engagement creates a more enjoyable shopping experience for the visitor and helps the seller by allowing for easy, direct communication. ArtFire COO Tony Ford adds "As the social internet continues to expand, the people producing the content are beginning to ask: 'what's in it for me?' The fact is that commenting on a page or product has value; with this program we offer a way for our artisans to recognize the value of social shopping and sharing."
