What’s New on Zephop – December 2017

Hello from the editor’s desk. We hope you have all been good and are looking forward to some downtime and relaxation at the end of the year. We also hope you are planning to have lots of good food, because we definitely will. Here at Zephop, we are rounding up 2017 and putting together our plans for 2018.

2017 was a great year for us. Not only did we see a huge growth in operations month-on-month, but we also had the pleasure of inviting a few standout interns to work with us. Most of this blog was taken over by our Marketing Intern, who injected her own voice and enthusiasm into the round-ups of our self-professed love for food. One of our co-founders got married to his long-term partner (yay!) and another is engaged!

We executed many plans that we had on our to-do list and trialled many initiatives. Unlike last year, this year all our marketing collateral remained largely the same and as a brand, we felt we had found our look and voice. Like most things in life, we have had a few downs too. Some of our progress hasn’t quite been what we’d like it to be. And some of our schemes have failed – but every day, we learn, we teach, and we go. We’ve made some changes to the way we work and we have also edited some of our plans to make sure they fit our goals. At Zephop, we have always believed that if you are not swamped with work and stretched to the limits, something is wrong. And so far, it has been SO good!

So, for 2018, we will continue to do the things we have done well this year, and keep coming up with new ideas, initiatives, and hare-brained schemes. Because, if we don’t stir the pot, who will? Best wishes to all and your family and friends over the festive period. See you next year!

This month, on #InternationalWomensDay, we partnered with a few selected businesses to run a day long flash sale. On 8th March only, we offered double points to all our customers on Zephop. This was the the first time we had run an offer like this and we were very happy with the results.

A lot of customers gave us very good feedback on our promotional offer and we got some great customer and business engagement. So if you got double points on Women’s Day, why not click on the email to add them to your Zephop account? This way, you can redeem them for free rewards next time. What’s not to like?

Remember to add your phone number to your account when you sign up. It helps us keep your accountmore secure and also makes it super convenient to use Zephop on your mobile. Used it and loved us? Let us know by commenting her or on any of our social media channels.

Happy Holi, have a fun and safe time playing with colours. And we hope you always have good food.

What’s New on Zephop – February 2017

We are making a few changes to the way Zephop works. This is all very exciting to us and the businesses who partner with us are all on board and looking forward to it as well.

It is quite an important change for us as we take our learnings from the first phase of our operations and try and build an even more successful product in phase 2.

What this means for you, dear readers, is that if you haven’t already, you should give us your phone number by adding it to your Zephop profile. This has many direct and indirect benefits, but the most important ones are that it allows:

  • You to get points quicker and more reliably
  • You to get real-time notifications
  • Us to keep you more secure
