Competitors to Netflix join forces with Visa to bring new customers to the company’s Online video playground. A company known to primarily overseas audiences, ICFlix, was established in 2012 and offers a vast array of titles from Hollywood to Bollywood and even Jazwood, which are Arab releases. According to an August 31, 2014 press release, the company has announced that the offer would begin the following day, which would be September 1, 2014.

The offer is very simple, and it is set up to benefit both Visa and ICFlix in assuring that a customer will use a Visa check, debit or credit card to make a subscription purchase with ICFlix. Through their purchase, they will receive two months of service for the price of one. Each subscription fee is similar to that of Netflix, set at $7.99 USD, and appears to offer a larger variety of titles for the International viewer. Even greater the value, consumers are allowed to test drive the platform for free for seven days before making a decision, or while awaiting the arrival of their new Visa card.

 

In making services more convenient for consumers, ICFlix has created cross platform delivery in that movies can be viewed on tablets, PCs, gaming platforms, smart TVs and mobile devices. Is this perhaps a way that Visa is taking advantage of Internet and Mobile Marketing without “in-your-face” marketing? Customers may seek to apply for a new Visa card if they do not currently hold one in that they will see benefits of just that. Likewise, those that hold a Visa may search for other perks and offers available to them. ICFlix will benefit from new consumers that will take advantage of the offer, spread the news to friends and will convert to long term customers. This will build brand loyalty amongst the audiences, who feel they are getting something "extra" for choosing to do business with these brands, as opposed to their competition.

On the cross promotional merger, Karim Beg, Head of Marketing at Visa MENA said: "Visa is pleased to partner with ICFLIX to allow Visa cardholders in the MENA region a special incentive when they purchase a month's subscription on the popular online streaming website. We are delighted to be able to offer avid Hollywood, Bollywood and Jazwood fans in the region the opportunity to stream their favourite films, while enjoying the safety and convenience of transacting with Visa."

We have seen cross promotions between major companies time and time again. This isn’t the first, and it surely isn’t the last. But, it is great to see older, more established businesses teaming up with much newer, expanding businesses and bringing new innovations, offers and brand loyalty to the table.

For those webmasters, bloggers, and social networks that have taken advantage of .ME extensions, as opposed to traditional .COM addresses, you could find yourself “reaping the rewards” of innovation in upcoming weeks. As of January 4, 2014, .ME Registry personnel have announced “The .ME Loyalty Program” at the 2014 New Media Expo (NMX) n Las Vegas, Nevada. The loyalty program is a platform that connects all .ME users into one community and then rewards them with exciting perks and prizes within the community.

Users can begin collecting points by “checking [.ME] social medias, joining .ME contests, bringing friends to the website, sharing related #hashtags on Twitter or Instagram” ...and more! Once points are collected through social action, they may then be rewarded with exciting perks and prizes, “including T-shirts, domain name and hosting packages, gift card vouchers and much more.” The intent to drive more people to .ME domain extensions for personal and social content creation is the goal of this loyalty program. The .ME extension is becoming more popular in today’s “social society” and .ME registry is creating the opportunity for .ME creators to be rewarded for setting the standard in current web trends and domain destinations.

 

While a “youngin’” in comparison to .COM destinations, this five year old practice has been finding itself gaining momentum and rapidly gaining in web demand. Perhaps this is an attempt to combat the future release of multiple domain extensions that include professions, hobbies and topical interests (i.e. JohnSmith.LAWYER, Grocery.STORE, etc.). Nonetheless, .ME will continue to grow with demand, due to short address ability, “call to action potential” and the objective of direct social personalization. Currently, there are over 750,000 domain names under .ME control and more than 170 accredited registrars for them, including the popular GoDaddy.com.

The loyalty program was designed to be “clean and easy” while celebrating the .ME community. Users may sign up through traditional means or via Social Sign In (with Facebook, Twitter, etc.). They will then be able to participate in fun activities that allow them to collect points through the program, while saving points to redeem their rewards.

NMX attendees were given an additional incentive through the loyalty program’s grand announcement. They were encouraged to sign up with Facebook and collect points by sharing their ideals on the new program and including photos that they had taken at the .ME booth on Twitter and Instagram, further attaching the #domainME hashtag selected to commence the .ME Loyalty Program campaign.

“As longtime sponsors of NMX, we have developed a truly special relationship with our blogging community. We would like to invite everyone attending the conference to stop by booth number 607 to chat with us, pose for personalized photos and take home swag we’ve designed for the blogger on the go,” said Predrag Lesic, CEO of the .ME Registry. Many did and became the first of what will be many users participating in the .ME Loyalty Program and “making the Internet more personal!”
