CashStar Social Engagement Enables Brands to Securely Reward Consumers with eGift Cards via Social Media
CashStar today announced that SEPHORA, the prestige global beauty retailer, has launched CashStar Social Engagement capabilities, a new innovation within the CashStar Marketing application and the CashStar Commerce platform. With this solution, SEPHORA can now securely use eGift Cards to surprise and delight customers via Twitter.
Rather than needing to switch from public to private channels to deliver rewards, CashStar Social Engagement enables brands to issue gift cards and digital incentives for all of a recipient’s followers to see, while guaranteeing that only the intended recipient can claim them.
This enables brands to:
- Strengthen brand loyalty and deepen connections with consumers
- Execute, track and measure the impact and ROI of social promotions, incentives, rewards and customer remediation initiatives for each consumer that is engaged via Twitter
- Drive direct revenue through Twitter outside of advertising
- Pay only for those rewards which are claimed, eliminating the upfront expense and management issues of unclaimed eGift Cards
“SEPHORA has embraced innovation and the powerful use of social and mobile marketing to engage consumers and deliver a compelling omnichannel experience,” said CashStar President and CEO Ben Kaplan. “With CashStar’s new social engagement capabilities, retailers such as SEPHORA now have new secure opportunities for meaningful, real-time engagement with their clients on social channels.”

Sephora is a leader in global beauty retail, teaching and inspiring clients to play in a world of beauty. Sephora has earned its reputation with its expertise, innovation, and entrepreneurial spirit, and has been changing the face of prestige cosmetics since its debut in Paris in the early 1970s. A year after its acquisition by luxury group LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton in 1997, Sephora expanded its empire to North America with a revolutionary store model that broke down the department store counter. Now with 435 stores in the Americas—including US, Canada, Mexico, and Brazil—plus 500 inside JCPenney, Sephora has become a leading international beauty destination with over 2,000 locations in 31 countries, plus an award-winning website and an intuitive mobile app. Clients have the opportunity to play with 14,000 products from 200 carefully curated brands, featuring indie darlings, emerging favorites, trusted classics, and Sephora’s private label, SEPHORA COLLECTION. In store, the client receives personalized recommendations from the IQ system, and at the Beauty Studio she explores her look with makeovers, complimentary classes, hands-on events, and one-on-one consultations. Online she interacts with an inclusive beauty community on the award-winning Beauty Board and interactive Beauty Talk. And as one of Sephora’s 17 million Beauty Insiders, she feeds her beauty addiction with unique rewards and experiences. Sephora offers endless ways to explore beauty. For the latest, visit sephora.com
