HERE IS HOW A YOUNG NIGERIAN COUPLE MADE AN APP THAT TURNS YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA PHOTOS INTO CURRENCY
Cosign, which is “the first app to make products in your photos ready-to-buy, turning your social media followers into customers and your style into a way to earn cash rewards,” launched in 2015 with funding that the couple received from family and a successful Kickstarter campaign. Three years later, the app continues to expand, adding to its already long list of brand partners, which includes Sephora, Forever 21, Macy’s, Neiman Marcus and Ted Baker, to name a few. You simply use the app to buy and recommend your favourite products straight from social media.
HOW IT WORKS?
- CUT OUT THE GUESSWORK AND ENDLESS SEARCHING
Tagging your favorite products provides followers with information about the product, brand, retailer and price. Followers can now easily discover millions of new products recommended by people like you – their favorite fashion and beauty bloggers, stylists and friends.
- SHARE YOUR TAGGED PHOTOS DIRECTLY WITH FOLLOWERS
Seamlessly share your tagged photo to your favorite social networking sites, like Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest. Your followers can tap to learn more about what you’re wearing and even shop in-app directly from your photo.
- EARN REWARDS FOR SHARING YOUR STYLE
Your influence matters, and COSIGN is the best way to earn rewards for sharing your style with friends and followers. You get cash each time a follower shops directly from your photos. Use the COSIGN app to track image earnings and cash out at your convenience.
- AS YOUR INFLUENCE GROWS, SO DO YOUR REWARDS
Views, likes and purchases earn you COSIGN points in addition to the cash earned through social sales. As interactions with your posts increase, so will your COSIGN influencer status. A higher COSIGN status earns you more commission on sales and a greater influence with retailers in our COSIGN Retailer Network.
