Kindred – the caring sharing app
Recently I attended the Influencer Marketing Show as a guest of Kindred. One of the co-founders is Aaron Simpson, founder of Quintessentially. It was great to find out more about how Kindred works and how we can harness the app for good.
What is Kindred?
Kindred is a new marketplace that helps charities earn money when you spend money through brands. Already you can sign up to donate to over 50,000 charities and the number is ever-growing.
“Welcome to a kinder world. Welcome to a Kindred world”
Practice what you post
Kindred creates real connections and empowers customers to do better with their everyday purchases.
It’s important or any blogger, vlogger, brand, and company to really understand what their core values are. What charities they align themselves to and which causes are genuine. It’s important to practice what you preach and adopt this into our everyday lives.
Share what you love
Kindred empowers you to post the products you know and love and you get rewarded for it. Make authentic recommendations to your family, friends, and followers and you earn cash and help the charities you really care about.
Give back with every purchase
Kindred is for people who want to give back with their everyday purchases.
Save your followers money
Kindred allows you to share amazing special offers on the products you love with your friends, family, and followers.
Collaborate with world biggest brands
Kindred is THE powerful link that connects you DIRECTLY to some of the World’s top brands – whatever you’re passion or interest.
How to get started
Advocates (you and me), brands, agencies, and charities can all get involved. Simply download the app to your phone to get started.
Navigating the Kindred App
Once you download the app, you will see 3 menus on the home screen of the app – Discover, Brands, Categories.
Below the carousel is another section, which is trending now and recommended for you. If you scroll further down you will see new offers and those ending soon as well as give 100%.
Set up your Profile
In this section, you can set up your profile and create your own unique URL which you can use to invite people to Kindred. You can potentially earn 1% by referring to anyone using this link. If anyone signs up using this URL, I will donate this money to MIND my charity of choice.
How does it work
If you click on BRANDS you can choose who you would like to work with. Boohoo, ASOS, Nasty Gal are on the app. If you check CATEGORIES you will find that so are many others targeting children, men, pets, tech, and health & beauty.
How it works, is that YOU will receive a small commission for the sale, the BUYER will receive a discount but you will be donating a percentage of your earning to a CHARITY OF YOUR CHOICE. It’s a win-win situation.
What I love about Kindred
I love the fact that by promoting sales of brands that you can choose to promote. You will not be only passing on a discount to your friends, family, readers. You will be donating a percentage of your earnings to Charity. I think that it’s important to support charities who continue to do such amazing work.
Australia Bush Fire Disaster Message:
The Australian wildfires are causing mass evacuations, destroying homes and killing millions of animals. In partnership with Global Giving, Kindred are helping raise money for those affected by the crisis, by running a month-long campaign in our app, highlighting the issue and allowing users to select the Australian Wildfire Fund as a charity to support.
When you select the Australian Wildfire Fund on the Kindred app, every time you shop with us – or someone purchases from your unique link – a percentage of the sale will go directly to helping the millions affected by the fires. Kindred is a digital marketplace with purpose, connecting brands, charities and consumer communities in an authentic way.
Kindred has created a digital community that uses social media to help consumers find and recommend products and brands they advocate for. Consumers and advocates can find brands they want to buy from, get a great deal and then share that recommendation with friends, family and followers. Earnings from any recommendation can go to one of the 40,000 charities of the users choice. We believe anyone and everyone can give back to charity whilst going about their daily lives, and find a great deal on their favourite brands at the same time. Our Kindred community is a way for consumers to shop, share, earn and give back. Conscious consumerism at its best.
