I’ve always seemed to be a step behind when it comes to hopping on the newest whatever whatever on the internet. I joined Facebook late, I started blogging later than most bloggers, I joined Twitter after President Obama did, and YOU guys are the ones that kept telling me to join Pinterest and Instagram. Oops. Yeah, joined late.
I vowed that I’d be the first to hop on board the next big thing, so when Vine came around, I was like YEAAAAH look at me, guys, I’m on Vine! I’m creating eight second videos, holla at your girl! Now Instagram has video (and now so do I), so Vine is all but defunct. Either way, I’m getting better at this. I’m becoming an early adopter.
When I saw that a few bloggers I get down with are on Luvocracy, I was like, “Explain to me in simple human terms what this is so I may relish in it also.”
It’s Pinterest meets Amazon.
It’s Pinterest meet Nordstrom.
It’s Pinterest minus all of the thinspiration pins next to the Oreo lasagna pins.
You curate your own collections of things you love, and then you can buy them all right on the site. Once you place an order, Luvocracy acts as a shopping concierge, gets you the best prices, and has everything shipped to your house. Everything has a 3o day back guarantee, so it’s risk-free. I have collections for stuff for me, my kids, stocking stuffer ideas, and even a Tweens + Teens board so I can compile gift ideas for the teenage girls that help out with my kids at church or home.
You can add anything to your Luvocracy collections that you can buy online – from any site. If you purchase something right from one of my collections, you’re helping to support NEON FRESH with a small percentage of sales. And let’s turn that around, if you start your own collection, and I (or anyone) buys from you, you make 2% on every purchase from your collection.
Numbers can be confusing (for me, mostly), so lemme break it down like this:
You sign up and you make some collections. Every time someone purchases from your collection, you make 2%. Every time you tell a friend about Luvocracy and they sign up through you, you make 2% every time they purchase something from ANYONE’S collection. What if someone adds something from your collection to their collection? Well, anytime it sells, you still get a cut. Neeeeaaat. :) More details here, if I sound stupid.
I know a lot of you have signed up through Zulily or Joss + Main or One Kings Lane (I’ve used all 3), but instead of only getting a kickback the first time your friends purchase, you get a kickback every time they purchase. And with Luvocracy, you can choose store credit or actual $$$.
Here’s another thing I really love about Luvocracy: it opens people up to way more “mom + pop” shops on the Internet. You’ve got your Nordstroms and your Gaps and your West Elms, but there are a ton of independent little shop websites all over that are now getting a lot more exposure.
It’s also a lot easier for Jack to find me a gift for a birthday or anniversary or other special occasion. Instead of wildly guessing at what I might want, he can use Luvocracy to find a few things he knows I’ll love and then buy them all on the same site. One shopping cart, one transaction, and only one entry of a credit card number. (The site’s secured, so once you use a credit card, it saves that info for you.)
This could save marriages. Maybe.
Aaaaand a fun perk! If you sign up with Luvocracy through me, you’ll immediately get a $10 credit to buy whatever you want, and then you’re automatically entered to win $100 to my store on Luvocracy. So you can sign up, get $10 right away, potentially earn a little cash through your own collections, and then you’re entered to win $100, too. You just have to be 18+ and a resident of the US. Official rules are here. The contest giveaway ends on July 28th, and the winner will be announced the next day. :)
Note: This isn’t a sponsored post. No one paid me to write it. &:)
When you sign up, let me know so I can scope out your collections.
Cool. Cool, cool, cool.
