About Automate Word‑of‑Mouth

Why you should use Guru Club for your business:

Active clients on average are seeing an 18X ROI using Guru Club!!!

When it comes to shopping decisions, 92% of people trust recommendations from friends over any other form of advertising.

86% of young consumers are looking to post social media content for money.

Start putting advertising dollars into the pockets of your own customers to market your business instead of paying for overpriced advertising!

Here's how it works:

Coupons ($3 per approved story):

  1. Set your coupon amount and set a limit of coupons that can be claimed.
  2. Offer coupons via social media, email marketing, etc to anyone who tags your brand in an Instagram story and creates a Guru Club account.
  3. Followers/subscribers tag your business in a story, and link their story to our system.
  4. When their stories expire, we automatically send them an email with a unique coupon link to make a purchase from your website.

Refunds ($3 per approved story):

  1. Choose your partial refund amount and promote the offer to your customers.
  2. Customers buy an item from your site and sign up for Guru Club (Customers can sign up before or up to 60 days after their purchase).
  3. Once they receive their item in the mail, they must post an Instagram story of them using the item or service, clearly tagging you business & they must keep it up until it expires after 24 hours (We make sure of this).
  4. When it expires, Guru Club automatically triggers a partial refund back to their form of payment.

*If your customer does not tag your business in a story within 60 days of their purchase, they do not get a refund.*

Thank you for your honest feedback! We love providing a way for merchants to directly collaborate with their customers in a way that promotes customer loyalty and small business support!


Guru club has done WONDERS for my business. We have brought in thousands of dollars from using their micro-influencer program. My biggest praise towards guru club is the trust that it creates for my followers and brands. By allowing my followers with a lower follower count to earn money just for sharing their favorite brands... that is something I have never seen before. Guru club is attentive, trustworthy, and full of next level forward thinkers catering towards the demands of the current media world. I am so grateful for Jimmy and the Guru Club family. Not only for bringing me results, but for believing in my brand. I plan to keep them around for the long haul!
