My daughter, Emery, is showing off my new pair of glasses from Coastal.com! What do you think? Check out the deal I got on Facebook: http://t.co/VxUKVnRV
Anyone who knows me very well, will tell you that I'm a sucker for a good deal. I'm a big fan of Groupon, Woot, 1SaleaDay, etc. I saw this deal on Facebook and thought it must be too good to be true, but pursued it anyway.
Coastal.com was offering a FREE pair of glasses and all you had to do was pay the shipping. I went ahead and called them thinking it must be too good to be true, but honestly it wasn't. I went ahead and picked out a pair and paid $10 for shipping thinking the risk was worth it. I was very pleased with their customer service over the phone and even more pleased when just 36 hours later the glasses were delivered to my doorstep.
What Coastal.com decided to do was use Social Media viral marketing allowing the word to spread with an unbelievable offer. Instead of spending their money on traditional marketing efforts they are allowing their product to sell itself knowing that those who buy glasses and contacts will not just buy one pair, one time. They have earned my future business and I think they will earn yours as well if you give them a try. It's only a $10 risk, I'd say it's worth it!
