SheerID Community Verification

Instantly verify eligibility for exclusive offers for hundreds of communities around the world, including students, teachers, and the military.

Why Verify Community Members?

One of the best ways to acquire customers is by giving an exclusive offer to a target community and verifying a customer’s eligibility for it.

When you give a gated offer to a group like students, you make them feel special, which motivates them to buy from you, again and again. Research shows that when a consumer community receives an exclusive offer, 67% of its members would use it to try a new brand, and 70% would be more loyal to that brand.

This exchange with consumers is called identity marketing, and you can use it to acquire hundreds of communities across the world.

Why Brands Choose SheerID for Community Verification


Increase Engagement and Lower CAC

Identity-based offers see high conversion rates because they create a strong emotional connection with customers. Consumer communities share the offers at high rates, too, which amplifies your campaign and lowers acquisition costs. Digital verification protects your margins for even greater ROI.

"Partnering with SheerID has given us a powerful new way to capture and retain our ideal customer segment"
Cheri Davies

Differentiate Your Brand

Giving a personalized offer to a consumer community expresses high regard for its members and makes your brand stand out in their eyes. Verifying their eligibility for your offer creates a reciprocal exchange of value that builds trust, which makes your campaigns more effective and leads to greater customer loyalty.

Grow Customer Lifetime Value

Honoring a customers’ identity with a personalized offer launches a deeper brand relationship because it makes them feel special. SheerID gives you zero-party data you can use to turn a customer’s first purchase into a lifelong engagement, and integrating SheerID into your loyalty program makes nurturing them even easier.

“Integrating our senior, teacher, and military personalized offers into our rewards program has helped us more deeply engage some of our best customers.”

Create Highly Secure and Appealing Offers

Discount abuse can be as high as 35%. Digital verification ensures only eligible customers can redeem your offer, which prevents revenue leakage and increases your margin. And when customers see your offer is truly exclusive, it increases the offer’s value and underscores your intent to launch a genuine relationship with them.
