Incrwd: Reward Your Readers

We have an exciting new program that we are helping to pilot called Incrwd. It’s a really cool rewards program that gives all of our users the chance to win a real reward simply for interacting with our site.

Here’s how it works:

Click on the green Rewards tab on the right hand side of the website.

Choose from one of our real rewards (you have to choose a reward before you can start winning points).

Interact with us— visit us, share your favorite articles on Facebook and Twitter, and add thoughtful comments to articles.

After unlocking your prize, a reward code will show up in the trophy case that you can take to the brand’s store or website to redeem!

Initially, not everyone will be offered the opportunity participate in the program. Incrwd will roll out their platform to all of our users over the course of a few weeks.

We think it’s a nice way to reward you guys for your contributions, and hopefully it makes your reading experience a little more fun!

For Incrwd customer service, please contact customer@myincrwd.com.

  2. Im impressed by your innovation. Ill explore the rewards program in the days and weeks ahead.

  3. Looks interesting. Let me know how it goes! Several bloggers have done this own their own, but I always wonder about the results.

  4. Very interesting! But I can’t find the green rewards button….

  5. I think Luke does something like this on Consumerism Commentary – I always forget about it.

    By the way, I didn’t see the green rewards button either.

    Is it something that should improve your readership base and interaction with the readers? Why did you decide to go this route? Just curious…

      I worked pretty hard on my blogoversary giveaway. It was a lot of fun, but I wanted an easier way to have giveaways. I met Incrwd at BlogWorld and we got to talking. It seems like a mutually beneficial partnership. Always looking for ways to improve the reader experience. Let me know what you think. I’m all ears!

    I’m impressed by your recent leading edge blogging moves. Good stuff, Buck. First the podcasts, now this. You did a nice job on the podcasts, perhaps you have an NPR future:)

    • Buck Inspire says:

      Thanks Squirrelers. I’m just trying my best to keep up with high powered content creators like yourself! I’m having fun with it and if NPR comes a calling, I hope you continue to tune in!

  9. Sounds like a win-win situation. You get more interaction with your readers and as do your readers, plus a reward. Looking forward to watching how the program grows.

  10. Interesting idea. I love rewards!
