Gated Offers Create Emotional Bonds That Drive CLV

When you give a gated offer to a group like students or teachers, you reward the communities they belong to, which makes them feel special and drives them to buy from you, again and again. Research shows that 67% of consumers would use a gated offer to try a new brand, and 70% of consumers are more loyal to brands that give them a gated offer.

This exchange with consumers is called identity marketing, and you can use it to engage hundreds of communities united by identity attributes like their profession or life stage.

Run Campaigns that Deliver High ROI

Drive 3x Conversions

Gated offers verified by SheerID see 3x higher conversions than average marketing campaigns.

Create Viral Offers

8 in 10 consumers would share a gated offer with other members of their community.

Protect Your Margins

Verifying eligibility for a gated offer keeps it exclusive and prevents discount abuse.

Why Brands Choose SheerID for Gated Offers


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
Senior Director of Acquisition Marketing

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.”
Steve Carlotti
Executive Vice President of Marketing of Michael's

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.
