LOYAL3 offers public companies a technology platform called a Customer Stock Ownership Plan (CSOP) that enables public companies to sell their stock directly to customers on Facebook or the Web in just 3 clicks, creating more loyal and valuable customers.
Customer-owners spend more, refer more and stay customers longer than ordinary customers. Thus, client companies are motivated to convert customers to shareholders to increase loyalty, branding and liquidity.
Using a CSOP, consumers for the first time ever can buy stock in just 3 clicks, invest as little as $10 and pay no fees to buy or sell stock. They can even use a credit or debit card. CSOPs make stock ownership possible for tens of millions of Americans.
