Make your program customer-friendly
You want to ensure that everyone understands how the program works and how they can use it. Your customers will only stick around if they feel it’s easy and valuable.
Segment your customers
Don’t rely on demographic data like age or gender when segmenting; look at other factors like purchase history and location. This way, you’ll be able to create campaigns that speak directly to each segment’s needs and interests, making them more likely to respond positively than if you send out generic promotions for everyone in an area or demographic group.
Do a better job of collecting customer information.
Knowing more about your customers, you can tailor offers and rewards to their interests and needs. Collecting this information is easier than ever with mobile apps, but it’s also important to consider your other channels, such as social media and email marketing campaigns.
Think about how you can use your POS to offer rewards
Your POS is the perfect place to offer rewards that can help drive sales immediately — like discounts on future purchases or free products when you spend over a certain amount.
Make the benefits worth it.
Customers need to see that they’re getting something out of joining your loyalty program — special discounts or exclusive deals — before they’ll bother signing up in the first place. The key here is giving them enough value, so they don’t feel like wasting time.
Loyalty programs can help you grow your number of loyal customers, but you need to do it right: know your customers, give them real value, make it easy, and they will love your business.
