Instead of shopping online at several retail websites like Macy’s and Foot Locker, shop at just one website featuring the best items from all your favorite stores. Yuno is that website. It curates items from several websites and offers shoppers cashback for every purchase they make. Yuno offers another incentive for shopping at their website – cashback for sales generated from your Yuno social network. By making recommendations and posting like comments, you influence other shoppers. If anyone buys an item they see on your profile or a related item, you will get cash.
To make this possible, Yuno has secured agreements with hundreds of retailers. The items listed on Yuno are based on the latest trends, and according to PR Newswire, Yuno is a gateway to 70 million items. The website is free to use.
Yuno has several competitors in the social shopping industry including Kaboodle, MyItThings, Zebo, ProductWiki, ShopStyle, Woot, and Iliketotallyloveit. These websites feature product reviews, curated items, community forums, voting, and product promotions.
Social shopping continues to grow. In 2014, over 150 million referrals to e-commerce websites from social networks were made, according to Market Wired. It is estimated that over 5% of all retail spending in 2015 will result from social network referrals.
Lots of people post shopping news on social media sites like Twitter, Facebook, and Google+. Usually, these posts look like this: “I just bought a new smartphone,” or “This website offers discounted video games.” Not only does the text inform others, pictures of the items attract attention and influence shopping decisions. These websites also make it easier to buy items. Twitter introduced a buy button that lets users discover products and make purchases easily. Over 100,000 merchants now display a buy button, according to Fortune.
Commenting on your favorite movie or vacation destination might earn you loyalty points for the rewards programs you have a membership for. The website Social Rewards helps users earn loyalty points for their rewards programs. Earn points toward hotel rooms, movie tickets, and airline miles by tweeting or following on Twitter, liking or sharing on Facebook, watching movie trailers and videos on YouTube, and posting a picture on Instagram. These points can be redeemed at several retailers including AMSTAR Cinemas, Harrah’s Las Vegas, and Planet Hollywood.
