Loyalty Program Do’s and Dont’s

When it comes to loyalty programs, companies are struggling to figure out what works and what doesn’t to inspire loyalty in customers for their brands. Customer incentives have never been harder to define. According to a recent study from Experian, three out of four (75%) U.S. companies with loyalty programs generate a return on investment. This clearly shows a benefit for most companies who spend money on loyalty programs. There is no denying that loyal customers are more profitable than acquiring new customers time and time again. Actually, according to Experian, 69 percent of U.S. companies with loyalty programs track the lifetime value of each customer for an average value of $1,803. However, getting to the point of customers returning time and time again to shop with their favorite brand is easier said than done. Should brands offer fuel rewards? Or would points off groceries work better? Marketers have to get customers involved and eventually have them advocate for their brands by sharing products on social media and referrals! Below is the ultimate marketer’s list of do’s and dont’s of loyalty programs. Customer goal setting is beneficial for setting either a timeline or a call-to-action. This can be done through […]

Online Customer Engagement? It’s Simple If You Do It Smart

A total of 52% of Web traffic to retail sites currently comes via smartphones and tablets, according to IMRG and Capgemini. Over a third (36%) of online sales are now completed on a smartphone or tablet device. This signals that sales are rising online, and sales are increasing online for mobile purchases versus the traditional face-to-face or in-store payment methods. Users are reaching out in the quickest, most efficient way to make their purchases. Customer loyalty and customer engagement are necessary for businesses today to grab those online viewers’ attention and pull in new sales. But, the end goal is changing just a bit. Instead of only making that sale, businesses today must earn customer loyalty to drive recurring sales. Ultimately, customer advocacy is where the true value of your brand lies with the consumer. Are your customers recommending you via social media networks? Is your company ready to keep up? Analyzing your audience takes research, knowledge of your company base, and a full understanding of your product or service. Nobody can afford to target everyone anymore. Break your niche down. Put your time, money, and efforts towards the group with the highest chance of purchasing. By targeting your audience […]

Prepaid card rebate programs are hot right now. Multiple industries are trying to set this program up for customer incentives because it actually works! However, companies are struggling because they are making crucial errors that make their card and reward inefficient and, frankly, a pain in their customer’s butts. Imagine a mail-in rebate of $50 on a $40 video game. Only $10 for the newest edition, and you think to yourself, “I need that.” So you write out a check and mail it in as quickly as you can.

The Untold Secret To Quality Incentive Programs

Incentive programs can lure new leads into your sales funnel, retain old customers, or motivate employees to increase their sales. While the past techniques of incentive programs have been useful, a new strategy is emerging, and it is taking the incentives industry by storm. During the past 5 years, there has been an obvious change in incentives programs in the marketing world. Are you ready for the change? There are hundreds of options when developing an incentives strategy. There could be customer offers to gain initial leads, such as sweepstakes, sales offers, or instant win games. All of these options will get people interested in your company, but there are three important facts to consider when developing your consumer incentives program. Firstly, how and when your incentives are delivered. If you promise a customer an incentive for purchasing one product and offer them a different coupon for their next purchase, how will you give them that coupon? Will it be in a letter to their home address? Or should you send a virtual pin number so they can redeem it immediately online? How you send your incentives also sends a message about your company. What would happen if that coupon […]

Fear Not If You Use Gamification The Right Way!

Gamification is taking off. It is estimated that in 2016 $2.8 billion will be spent on gamification. 70% of Global 2000 organizations will have at least one gamified APP. And, 50% of organizations worldwide that manage innovation processes will gamify those processes. But, what is gamification? Gamification is the process of enhancing services with motivational processes to invoke enhanced experiences and further behavior outcomes. Gamification falls into the behavior-feedback-progression model. A specific behavior will get you specific feedback. Like playing catch. If you throw the ball and your partner catches it you will say “good job!” But, if your partner drops it how would you respond? The feedback will determine progression. If someone is getting a lot of negative feedback why would they continue? People play into the gamified apps for instant gratification or instant rewards. Make the consumer feel a connection with your company by implementing positive feedback and steps to continue progression such as call-to-actions. So, how does this so-called ‘gamification’ work? Well, gamification works because it plays into the psyche of humans. All ages at some point have been exposed to games whether it is baseball, card games, Nintendo, or Xbox. They learned to win, lose, and how […]
