Project description

My name is Ambroise, I’m an entrepreneur who worked with multi-millions startups in Europe, after a scientific baccalaureat and 7 year studies (electronic engineering + business). My profile and background are oriented towards sales and marketing (B2C & B2B) with strong management skills. In 2016, I founded RecoHero, with the vision to digitalise word-of-mouth referrals for e-commerce businesses worldwide, in order to make the online purchase process more reliable, interactive and rewarding (cash-back).

THE PROBLEM FOR E-COMMERCE SITES:

1) High acquisition costs and speculative ROI : Marketing costs escalate as e-commerce sites go through expensive and speculative acquisition channels to drive traffic to their stores in today’s competitive market.

2) Low customer retention : The customer’s lifetime value is poor for small to middle e-commerce stores.

3) Low affiliate referrals conversion rates: Affiliation is one of the channels with the lowest conversation rate in e-commerce, as there is a lack of value for the recommended buyer. The system has been operating in the same way since 2005 and needs to be renewed.

THE SOLUTION:

RecoHero digitalises word-of-mouth recommendations for e-commerce, where buyers can recommend purchases to friends. All customers receive a cash-back percentage, which increases for every new buyer.

1) ROI positive acquisition: E-commerce sites enjoy a no-risk communication channel and equally re-distribute the acquisition cost to its customers, through cash-back calculated on their floor price.

2) Increased satisfaction/retention rates: The cash-back is an incentive for customers to purchase again on the site rather than on competing sites.

3) Higher conversion rates: 90% of word-of-mouth referrals lead to a purchase. In a group of friends with common interests, satisfied customers are the best sellers !

HOW IT WORKS:

Right after making an order on the e-commerce site, the customer can recommend the purchased product to friends through a referral link. If a friend buys the product through the link, they both receive a cash-back on the product’s price. Everytime a new customer buys the same product through the same link, the cash-back percentage increases. All involved customers receive the same cash-back amount.
