Over the last two years, TiiCKER has helped thousands of retail investors connect with shareholder perks simply for owning stock in companies they love. And we have to say: It has been a real pleasure. That’s because TiiCKER is passionate about linking individual investors with shareholder rewards.
TiiCKER went live in July 2020, followed by its iOS app launch in November 2020 and Android launch in November 2021, and has since created a new industry – direct-to-shareholder marketing. As the world’s first intelligent software platform that engages, verifies and rewards retail shareholders, TiiCKER makes it easy for investors and public companies to connect through a simple verification process that links directly to their online brokerage accounts and allows new investors to trade for free.
In that time, TiiCKER has connected investors with hundreds of perks that range from room upgrades on Royal Caribbean International (Tii:RCL) cruises to discounts on appliances from Whirlpool (Tii:WHR) to delicious foods from Real Good Foods (Tii:RGF) and free mobile service from SurgePays (Tii:SURG), to name just a few.
“TiiCKER exists because we believe shareholders should be rewarded for their loyalty,” said Jeff Lambert, founder and CEO of TiiCKER. “We are passionate about connecting individual investors to stock perks and we feel the same about providing leading companies a meaningful link to this important group of shareholders.”
There’s something very satisfying about giving gifts. It makes people happy and creates a warm connection between the giver and the receiver. And in essence, that’s what TiiCKER does. The platform creates connections between retail shareholders and the companies they invest in. Individual investors receive a token of appreciation from the companies they hold shares in and the company creates goodwill and forms a pipeline to communicate with and learn from its most loyal customers.
TiiCKER is curious, just like you. Discovery is another aspect of TiiCKER that individual stockholders love. We hear time and again from TiiCKER users that they have discovered new investing opportunities on the platform. They might have come to find rewards for owning shares of recruiter.com (Tii:RCRT), for example, only to discover another company that interests them and also offers perks.
TiiCKER cares about the safety of its investor accounts. By partnering with data security leaders such as Auth0 for password protection and Plaid to validate brokerage institution credentials, TiiCKER seamlessly and securely allows users to connect their accounts while ensuring the safety of user’s financial information. To date, the top five brokerage accounts with assets connected to TiiCKER include Charles Schwab, TD Ameritrade, E*Trade, Fidelity and Merrill Edge.
Companies benefit from connecting to shareholders, according to a study published in the scholarly magazine “Review of Financial Studies.” The study found that companies that provide shareholders gifts can expect an increase in their stock price and a boost in trading of the assets. Researchers analyzed stock prices of Japanese firms, which are more likely to provide shareholder perks than their American counterparts. They found that following the announcement of new perks firms’ stock prices increased. The research also showed that along with the increase in value there is an immediate, detectable increase in liquidity, a measure of how much of the stock is being traded at any time. This increase in liquidity means that it is relatively easier and more cost effective for small investors to trade in the stock than it was before.
