The Value of a Flexible and Customizable Loyalty Program
When you think of the word loyal, what do you think of? Is it a friendship or a sports team? Maybe even a specific brand or store; many different ways to define loyalty exist. Loyalty is almost always associated with a feeling of reliability or a meaningful experience that has created a relationship, which every business owner strives for. Why? Because loyalty drives customer retention, revenue, and growth. Loyalty programs have been around forever, but new to the trend are flexible and customizable programs.
Do you know what prompts customer loyalty? Indeed, quality, value, and customer service round out the top statistics; however, an emotional connection certainly increases the customer’s loyalty and lifetime value. We live in an age of instant gratification, yet loyalty doesn’t happen overnight. Hence a loyalty program’s fundamental purpose is to encourage repeat business. This is where the value of flexible and customizable loyalty programs comes into view.
Customizable is not synonymous with personalization and does not mean sending the same reward to every person; it means providing genuine rewards. Think of it like this, neither customer behavior nor customizable loyalty programs are one size fits all. To develop a long-term, loyal relationship, a business must genuinely understand what behavior drives its customers. A flexible and customizable loyalty program will only help change customer behavior and motivate loyalty.
Loyalty program rewards have evolved toward a higher customer value, but the loyalty life cycle is the same. Each year, loyal customers’ costs decrease, and they become brand ambassadors or business builders themselves.
