CANNON FALLS, Minn. -- Midwest-CBK, a leading designer and manufacturer of home and garden gifts, has partnered with SnapRetail to provide independent retailers with a free, turnkey SnapRetail Monkeez E-Marketing Program.
SnapRetail offers a Web-based system for online marketing and sales that is used by thousands of independent retailers.
The program offers retailers a social media and email marketing campaign to drive store traffic and sales of Monkeez Makes a Difference Genuine Monkeez & FriendsTM products. Midwest-CBK and SnapRetail provide a complete toolbox of email and social media templates to launch the new program to retailers' customers.
The program is available to independent retailers who purchase $500 worth of Monkeez Makes a Difference products during the summer markets or from their sales reps from June through Aug. 31.
It provides retailers with a one-month free subscription to SnapRetail's system and "coming soon" templates that tease new products prior to their release. When Monkeez Makes a Difference products leave the Midwest-CBK warehouse, SnapRetail will help retailers announce that the Monkeez are now available in their store.
"Midwest-CBK is always looking for new ways to support our customers with business-building tools," said Frank Davis, Midwest-CBK director of sales. "The beauty of this turnkey campaign is that it's free with purchase of the program and provides popular Facebook, Twitter and email tools to drive traffic and build sales. Plus SnapRetail and Midwest-CBK do the work. Retailers simply push the ‘send' and ‘post' buttons and watch the results."
"SnapRetail is excited to partner with Midwest-CBK to make it even easier for independent retailers to grow sales with the Monkeez Makes a Difference program," said Ted Teele, CEO of SnapRetail. "More consumers want to engage with their local retailers through email and social media to learn about new products, and SnapRetail makes it fast and simple."
Limited spots are available, and participation is first come, first served. Retailers are encouraged to have a database of at least 200 email addresses and an established Facebook page.
