With SheerID’s military verification solution in place, you can pick and choose which members of the military community can take advantage of your truly exclusive special offer, and ensure that only those customers can redeem your offer or get your military discount.
RESERVES AND NATIONAL GUARD
MILITARY SPOUSES & DEPENDENTS
Our service acts as a bridge between your web site, POS system, mobile app, or internal customer service console and authoritative military data.
Qualified military members can be verified instantly, either in your existing shopping cart or using a SheerID hosted verification portal. Our automatic verification process is totally painless for your customers. It’s as simple as filling out a basic form and clicking submit.
After being verified, customers can access gated offers, redeem a coupon code, or simply complete the shopping process with their applied discount.
The military market is especially receptive to an exclusive discount message. In addition, when you offer a military discount, the impression of your brand improves even among people who AREN’T military. You create a positive impression and buzz among people in and outside of the military. That’s one reason companies like Costco and the PGA TOUR use SheerID to extend exclusive special offers to the military community.
The military market (active duty, reservists, retirees, and employees) equals over 8.2 million consumers. Military veterans and spouses equal over 30 million consumers with a purchasing power of over $1 trillion annually.
Your great products plus the SheerID platform equals a super targeted military discount strategy.
PURCHASING POWER ANNUALLY
Military families are a unique consumer group. Compared to the national average, military families:
AS OFTEN TO CHANGE ADDRESSES
TRAVEL AS OFTEN
SPENT ANNUALLY ON APPAREL JUST BY DISCHARGED MILITARY PERSONNEL
94% of present and past military personnel state that they notice when companies are “military-friendly” and have a positive impression of those companies. The military market votes with their dollar. Offering an exclusive military discount gives them the recognition they deserve and gives your company a solid, loyal customer base.
Support these companies when you shop. Show them how important it is to recognize military service.
Offering a military discount is the most effective way to appeal to the military market, but how do you reach them? How do you advertise to military personnel on base or deployed half-way across the world? How do you keep in touch with military families who must relocate to a new address twice as often as others? Read our “Best Practices for Connecting with the Military Community” to get answers to those questions and more.
