Sharesi.es launched Sharesies, its reward social networking platform, which allows users to earn rewards from brands by sharing pictures and videos in the application.
The Sharesies app allows users to share their own pictures from their camera rolls, or take new pictures within the app. Users can also share videos from YouTube for others to view. Users can add descriptions and hashtags to photos and videos before sharing them.
As users share posts, they’re presented with rewards such as percent-off coupons and free shipping offers from brands including Ghirardelli Chocolate, Butcher Box, Sally Beauty Supply and others.
In addition to sharing content, users can browse posts from other users and follow users to view their new posts going forward. Users can also send messages to other users and can reshare posts from other users to their own feeds.
As users receive offers, they can save these to their Sharesies wallets to redeem them at a later time.
In a statement, Russell Craig, founder of Sharesi.es, commented:
Social media posts are worth more than likes for the users sharing their lives on social media. Up until now, social networking platforms have served brand interests through ads and sponsored posts, all without compensating users or giving something back in return. Sharesi.es was established to take the traditional digital advertising model and challenge it, awarding real monetary compensation for those sharing pictures and videos through our app.
