A new website called Cinco Squared was launched today that takes proven fundraising and business building methods to a cool new level.
Subscribing businesses will be able to create a web-based customer loyalty program in minutes. Businesses have the ability generate branded cards from the site with a unique code on each card. Customers who receive this card can go to the website, type in their code, and see alternating prize images embedded within 25 squares. The prizes and branded web page are configured by the subscribing business owner. Alternatively, business owners may choose to send their codes out in an email, Twitter, direct mail campaign, or even have them printed on customer receipts.
“Customer loyalty programs are proven to work and businesses are seeking a flexible and affordable solution; starting at around $7 per month, Cinco Squared is an amazing deal,“says David Siedt, Founder and CEO. “Businesses are now second guessing the trendy 50% off deals intended to attract customers as they often result in substantial profit losses. Cinco Squared prizes are randomly selected so big prizes can be mixed with smaller prizes which keeps businesses profitable and their customers coming back.”
Eligible non-profit organizations including Volunteer Fired Departments and Booster Clubs can create branded events and sell Cinco Squared cards. The nonprofit has full control of how many cards and what prizes are available. Card purchasers would then enter their code on the website and a prize will randomly be selected.
“I witnessed Volunteer Fire Departments struggling to get volunteers and spending so much time on fundraisers that just didn’t work anymore”, says David Siedt. “The flexibility for non-profits to configure any prize such as electronics, sporting goods, free admission, or even % off coupons combines the best of a traditional raffle with the efficiency of web-based technology.”
Beyond Marketing and Fundraising, Cinco Squared will also be popular with companies who wish to implement an employee rewards program. Companies would have the flexibility to be creative by configuring prizes such as a paid vacation day or a coupon to have your boss wash your car.
Cinco Squared is subscription based with rates starting at $29 for 4 months. The subscription includes the ability to brand the prize redemption page, run unlimited events in tandem, and has fully customizable auto-notification features.
