-Loyalty programs serve a critical role in developing relationships, stimulating usage,and retaining customers.
-Loyalty programs provide cumulative economic incentives to those who buy the brand.
-Loyalty programs are a great measure to maintain your customer base and not lose customers to a competitor. A loyalty program may not attract many new customers but it is a deterrent from customers joining a competitor’s program.
-A unique loyalty program may move your business from an awareness set in a consumer’s mind to a consideration or choice set.
-Loyalty programs provide customers with financial incentives. Customers may make additional purchases in order to reach a higher tier of rewards.
-Loyalty programs can also offer incentives for bringing friends and family into the program.
-Use your loyalty program to create a customer database, building up a market profile for future marketing campaigns and customer profiling.
-Think outside the square and consider using your loyalty program for a marketing alliance with another company, this develops a sense of identity by all members sharing in the same rewards program.
-Loyalty programs drive customer’s attachment to a brand or store including behavioural responses such as repeat purchases. If you want to loyalize a customer, identify specific needs and preferences your customers have communicated to you in some way, and deliver on that need.
