The Top Benefits of a Corporate Loyalty Scheme
July 8, 2019
It can be confusing knowing
how to reward your most loyal customers. You want to say thank you but also
entice them to maintain their custom at the same time…
This is where a reward scheme
comes in! A win-win for all parties involved, we’ve summed up what makes them
- A reward scheme does what it says on the tin –
it rewards custom, loyalty and hard work. Sometimes all that is needed to
motivate someone is a little reward (and not just a “thank you” email). Travel
and experiences are particularly effective when it comes to motivation, whether
that be a fun day out, a weekend mini-break or a week in the sun.
- If the right targets are set for your customers,
the scheme will be self-funding. How? Because when incentives are offered,
customers spend more – so there’s really nothing to lose.
- Following on from point 2, revenue will be
generated from those who hit their targets, but also those who don’t. This is
because even if targets are missed, customers would have generally increased
their spend over the scheme’s promotional period. It therefore makes sense to
get as many people to sign up as possible.
- Made up of as many different tiers as you see
fit, reward schemes are appealing for a variety of customers, not just the high
spenders. This ensures you’re rewarding every single individual (and you won’t
be seen to be prioritising one particular group).
- Whether you’re trying to entice new customers or
employees, offering rewards is great news for your brand image. It could even
make you stand out and elevate your company above the competition.
- As well as being positive for your overarching
brand identity, a reward scheme and the subsequent events that are hosted are
great for improving communication between different parts of the business –
whether that’s between you and your customers, or between the customers
- Whatever the scope of the reward scheme,
momentum can be maintained throughout the promotional period with an
interactive website. As well as allowing you to see how many people are
registered and the targets that are likely to be hit, the individuals
themselves can get an overview of their progress, be inspired by the various
events on offer, and even get weekly email reminders to keep them on track.
Bearing all of this in mind,
it’s clear to see why companies that offer loyalty schemes enjoy better
profits, customer loyalty and overall success.
