MediSpa Gets Interest on Pintrest

by yiftee on October 15, 2015

The Wisconsin Vein Center & Medi-Spa is this week’s Star Merchant.  They have pulled the full monty of social media marketing.  Upon joining Yiftee, they quickly installed their eGift Card link on their website so their clients could share their love of beautiful skin.  They didn’t stop there,  in addition to a eGift Card tab and  post on Facebook, and a Tweet, they even pinned a link to their eGift Card on their Pinterest “Great Gift Ideas” board.  Now, all they need to do is rinse and repeat to keep the holiday pipeline full.

Wisconsin Vein Center & MediSpa is a physician-owned and operated facility dedicated to providing the most effective treatments and products available with the highest standard of care.

Just minutes away from Milwaukee and Waukesha, their facility provides the comfort of a relaxed spa environment designed for women and men of all ages, focusing on wellness and beauty. With an on-site physician, they offer more advanced treatments and procedures than a traditional spa.

You can expect discretion at Wisconsin Vein Center & MediSpa. Their office is fully HIPAA compliant and provides private treatment rooms for each patient. Staff will do everything possible to ensure privacy. Many of the aesthetic procedures can be completed during a lunch hour with no recovery or “down time” required.

Promotional eGifts – Shorter Expiration

by yiftee on October 8, 2015

Coupons and discounts are yesterday’s promotional tools. They devalue your product or service and customers expect and wait for those lower prices in the future. Promotions in the form of eGift Cards are received as just that… a gift.

Using your Yiftee Merchant Portal, you can send eGifts to your customers to celebrate special store events, holidays, as a birthday gift, or just because (during slow season) with a short expiration date to encourage them to come in and redeem it. Note that only gifts sent by you at your shop have this special feature (shortened expiration period). Consumer purchased Yiftee eGift Cards expire after one year, upon which the value is returned to the sender.

Here’s how…

How You Look- Part 1

by yiftee on October 5, 2015

Yiftee wants you to look your best. There’s a reason they say “first impressions count”. Just like your website, your Yiftee eGift Card page defines your image and brand. Now you can improve the look of your Business Page Logo by removing the default white square that Yiftee adds to the back of it. If you have a transparent background logo image, you can now have it ‘float’ above your Cover Page Photo without the white box.
