I’m sure most of you Thirsty Girls know that Social Media is know larger than ever. Pretty much everyone I know has some form of a social media page these days, whether is be Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, or Pinterest. Since I am Borracha’s “marketing guru”, I am always searching the web for new forms of Social Media. The other day, I stumbled upon Yiftee, the newest type of Social Media that lets you send small gifts ($10 or less) to your Facebook friends from local merchants. For me, doing something little for someone like buying them a coffee or a little treat (cupcakes?) gives me the highest form of satisfaction. However, most of my friends and family live in different cities so I can’t just pick them up a coffee. Or, even more annoying, I usually don’t know their work address or schedule for the day, so I can’t just drop in at any time to deliver a little happiness. So, when I found Yiftee, I was in LOVE! Yiftee lets you simply choose a Facebook friend, then choose a gift from local merchant in their area, then the recipient simply shows the merchant their voucher and presto! This way, you can send small little gifts to distant loved ones or to those with busy schedules so they can pick up their gift on their own time. To be honest, I was a little jealous I didn’t come up with this idea first.
Luckily, for those of you with friends or family in San Luis Obispo, you can brighten someone’s day with Wine Wipes or Pearly Wipes! Know a friend that loves coffee, wine, has an event coming up, or just loves to keep their smile white? Just visit www.yiftee.com and sign in through your Facebook, choose a friend, and get ready for Thank yous! Also, help to spread the word of Yiftee by encouraging local merchants in your area to join the Yiftee networks so your choice of gifts expands. The internet sure does make it easy to give a little love now-a-days;)
