Win Teachers with Personalized Offers that Show Your Support

Gated, personalized offers make teachers feel appreciated and drive brand loyalty.

Protect Personalized Offers with SheerID to Win Their Business

Teachers identify more strongly with being a teacher than they do their religion, family role, hobby, or cultural background. And they love brands that recognize their tireless dedication to prepare our children for the real world.

Research shows that rewarding teachers with a gated, personalized offer make them try out a new brand, spend more, buy sooner, and purchase more often.

How SheerID Helps Acquire Loyal Teacher Customers

Win New Customers

Personalized offers help brands get the greatest impact from their acquisition programs, especially as customer acquisition costs continue to rise. In addition to trying a new brand, personalized offers encourage:

  • 1 in 2 to buy more items sooner.
  • 1 in 4 to spend more.
Generate Goodwill. Build Brand.

Appreciating the contribution teachers make to their classrooms and their community creates an emotional connection that captures their attention and endears them to your brand. 3 in 4 teachers prefer to shop with brands that offer teacher discounts.

Activate Word-of-Mouth and Reduce CAC

Teachers belong to tight-knit groups who know and trust each other. When one member shares a personalized offer with the group, others are likely to take advantage of it. In fact, more than 90% of teachers said they would share such an offer with others if they knew they were eligible. This kind of viral, word-of-mouth marketing helps drive down customer acquisition costs.

Prevent Fraudulent Discount Redemption

When you create a high-value offer, it can be highly desirable. So ensuring it’s protected is of the utmost importance. SheerID provides instant verification of teachers and educators in the US, ensuring that your offer only goes to eligible educators.

Rapidly Scale Your Program

As you see success, you can expand your program to verify teachers in 14 countries around the world. SheerID can provide localized experiences in the consumer’s language, delivered through white-label, in-brand website verification forms as well as email and SMS re-engagement tools.
