  11. 11. Cold Stone Continued<br />We’ve sold in just over a month and a half, about 2,000 eGifts and we’ve added roughly $10,000 in incremental sales to the franchisees,” Schutz said.<br />“Franchisees love it because they don’t have to do anything. It’s no extra labor. It’s all done in the virtual world, if you will, and then they just watch the sales come in. So they love it. We love it. Our fans love it. It’s definitely a win-win.”<br />Coupon Boosts Sales more than 1.2%<br />Every campaign Cold Stone runs, they see a spike in more store traffic and sales. <br />Currently, Cold Stone averages a cost of about 39 cents per coupon redeemed, compared to $3.60 per redemption with print advertising. <br />Now more than half of the company’s advertising budget is dedicated to non-traditional activities like social media.<br />
