How sobu Works
Making money while shopping
The idea of word of mouth or recommendation marketing is not new.
What is new, however, is the way in which this is done, namely online and via social networks.
Users advertise users on their social networks and receive a credit as soon as a friend follows the recommendation and buys something.
Start shopping at your favorite stores with an exclusive discount sobu offers.
Share your purchase with your friends and followers, and allow them to benefit from a special discount.
Take advantage of every purchase that your friends make through your referral and get money back directly.

From You - For You - For Your Customers
The fundamental question of every company is: what is the most valuable and credible sales tool?
The answer is simple: word-of-mouth. The much more complex challenge is the implementation as well as the activation of customers for recommendation. We have the solution for you: sobu (Social Media & Business Network).
We are the new, innovative recommendation platform – a spin-off of Swiss Post – that helps you take marketing on the Internet to the next level. At sobu, we have developed a unique business model that focuses on the most credible of all sellers, the consumer. Following the principle of “Buy-Share-Benefit”, sobu users recommend products they have bought from your online store to their friends via social networks. If a friend follows the recommendation and also buys from your online store, they receive a discount.
The referrer in turn benefits from a commission, the amount of which is determined by you. We take care of the monthly payment of the commission for you. True to our motto “from you – for you – for your customers”, everyone involved benefits. Roland Thiemann, Head of Corporate Marketing at Trusted Shops, on sobus’ market entry in Germany:”We are pleased that with sobu another player is entering the German market, that supports companies and online shoppers as an independent and reliable partner. Like Trusted Shops, sobu offers a business model with real added value, where security and trustworthiness are writ large.”
