Love just got digital!
With the advent of technology, lots of things changed. Is it any surprise Love did too?
Just the other day my Office Colleague Carol received a digital Gift Card with a personalized I Love You message. And coincidentally she received it as she was checking out the violet Jimmy Choo stilettoes to go with her new dress.
It doesn’t take much imagination to know how that Gift Card was used, but what she didn’t know was that her BF happened to see her at Jimmy Choo’s. So much for coincidence! That very handy Qash Gift in his smart mobile helped Andy spontaneously take advantage of a situation and bring a smile on Carol’s face and maybe even cement a place in her heart.
Nothing can beat a personal gift, personally delivered, but Digital Gift Cards are the next best thing! And at the forefront of this huge marketing trend is QashGift from Designermatic started by swashbuckling entrepreneurs – Samir Younes ( Evangelist), Ong KY (geek), Joanne Lee (flair) & Anuar Halim (Go-Getter). Seasoned IT professionals with a decade long experience of raking up top search engines listings for their clients, the trio spotted a Gifting Dilemma which cried out for resolving; and the result, QashGift – Send Gifts Smartly
“We deliver a unique digital solution by innovating a gift platform that makes gift-buying a truly wonderful shopping experience for everyone.”
Earlier retailers only had PPS (price, product, service) to stand out. But in today’s context Price as a strategy ispassé with the advent of online giants like AMAZON and retail superstores like Aeons. Products because of the wide variety and easy availability has stopped being a rallying point, which just leaves Service to take the gauntlet and lead sales. So Designermatic(DM) realized that Digital Gifts cards is a value added service and they furthered that by adding grace, love & passion to the whole exercise. They made ‘digital gifting’ which by all senses sounds counter intuitive into a highly personalized thing.
QashGift also allows you to send personalized voice message and greeting. It’s not an original idea they admit, but it is relatively new to Malaysia. Companies have realized that it is crucial to adapt to the growth and advancements of technology to enhance customer experience.
“Gift purchasing has never been this easy. QashGift is user-friendly, time-saving and a smarter way to purchase gifts for everyone, for every occasion and at anytime!”
Merchants are now able to reach out to a wide global audience rapidly and effortlessly while maintaining customer loyalty. Gifts evoke feelings of worthiness, gratefulness & appreciation and since Gifts are without exception valued items, it is tremendous branding.

Her team of 8 has a hard time matching up to her exacting tastes, but hey isn’t that what mentoring all about.
