SheerID and Refuel Agency have long supported the military by enabling companies to run marketing programs that honor and engage the military community. Many of these brands are launching special campaigns in May to celebrate military appreciation month and reward service members for their contributions to our society.
SheerID and Refuel wanted to amplify these efforts, and knowing there is strength in numbers, we formed the Military Brand Coalition, a group of 15 leading brands who share our high regard for military service. Together we are launching the STRIVE campaign—a program that gives back to the military through special offers and donations to the men and women in the armed forces. SheerID and Refuel are also making it easy for brands to join our efforts if they don’t already have a military offer.
What is STRIVE for the Military?
SheerID is encouraging companies to reward the military with exclusive offers by offering the following incentives to any brand that launches their campaign by May 31, 2022:
- 5,000 free military verifications to ensure every customer who receives your offer is eligible for it.
- Offer listings on SheerID’s Shoppers Site
- Best practices for marketing to the military, including:
- A free copy of our military playbook.
- The opportunity to view our STRIVE for the Military Innovation Lab.
- The latest Refuel Agency Military Explorer research report ($5,000 value).
SheerID is also participating in the Team Red White and Blue (RWB) military appreciation month program by donating 10% of revenue for new military program sales during the month of May.
“It’s an honor to support Team Red, White & Blue and their mission to provide health and wellness services to the men and women that served our country,” said Jake Weatherly, CEO of SheerID. “The SheerID platform makes it easy and secure for brands to recognize members of the military with special offers and rewards. This program gives us another exciting way to show our heartfelt recognition and admiration.”
In addition, SheerID and Refuel Agency are hosting a health and wellness Summer Kick-Off Event at the Fort Bragg military base in Fayetteville, NC on May 26. During this event, the Military Brand Coalition will provide more than $10,000 in giveaways for the active duty, spouses, veterans, and Team RWB members in attendance.
Participating brands include Nike, CheapCaribbean, Bass Pro Shops, Bang Energy, Gainful, TIDAL, Speedway Motorsports, Princess Cruises, P.volve, PODS, GEICO Military, T-Mobile, Oakley Standard Issue, and Generation Tux.
Give Back to the Military with STRIVE
While May presents a special opportunity to give back to the 33 million active duty, reservists, veterans, and dependents in the US, we believe it is always important to support these brave heroes. With $1.2 trillion in purchasing power, this group is also a lucrative one to engage, and STRIVE aims to help brands effectively reach the military community.
Liz Carmo, VP Military Market at Refuel Agency is enthusiastic about the upcoming event: “As the leading military marketing agency, Refuel is committed to showing ongoing support and giving back to the community. STRIVE is one small way we can show our appreciation.”
So, please join us during the STRIVE Campaign! If you know others who are interested in supporting the military this month and beyond, please share information about STRIVE. Next, the STRIVE Brand Coalition will be gearing up for Veteran’s Day.
