        The Read Content earning rule is an advanced earning rule (previously known as a campaign) that aims to improve your site’s SEO by increasing traffic and click-through rates. It encourages customers to read through your content (such as blogs, infographics, feature stories, etc.) and answer related questions that will earn them rewards. This earning rule is also a great way for you to inform your customers and keep them up to date on your latest products and services.

        Basic settings

        The settings shown below are options available for all of our Loyalty & Referrals plans

        The field "How many points?" will appear when you choose to reward your customers with points. This is where you can enter the number of points to be given to shoppers after completing the earning rule.


        The field "Which coupon should the customer get?" will appear. You may then select from the dropdown which coupon to apply for the specific earning rule


        Initially, the coupon selection is at $ 0.00 as no coupon still exists. You may refer to Creating a Coupon article to learn how to create coupons
