Campaign idea

SIDE:BIZ is an innovative approach to e-commerce that allows for any Diesel follower to open their own Diesel digital shop and promote it all over social media for rewards. SIDE:BIZ is Diesel’s way of celebrating the followers, putting them first and unleashing their social media power without contracts or proof of influence. Followers went on​ ​diesel.com/baf​/sidebiz; signed up; received a unique e-commerce link; shared it, posted it, texted it and emailed it to everyone. Every time someone shoped through their link, they earned rewards. This was the first loyalty program tapping into the native social media behavior of the users.
