increase customer loyalty
Frequent buyers/users are given an award or have a logo on their website. This can be a badge that says “I shop here often” and has a heart in the center, or their website is called “frequent shopper”. This way they can give it to their customers and, as they get more loyal, they also get more badges. The more loyalty the better. This can be used in a store, online shop or if you are a doctor’s office and you have patients that come often those people could earn a free coke or coffee or maybe even a gift card.
Customers can be loyal for a lot of reasons, maybe it’s the product that keeps them coming back, or maybe it’s the good customer service, or maybe it’s the fact that products are usually cheaper than other stores.
Some ideas to use in your business:
reward customers for their patronage
They have the customer come in and get their card scanned so they can keep track of what they buy and who spent their money. The more they spend the more badges they will earn. This will also work on businesses because if you spend $500 a year there, you get a free appetizer or some free fries with your meal. They can give out the logo sticker on their website or by sending it out in the mail. This is a form of gift certificates that you can buy at your favorite store and get another one free. If the customer has a business they can give them a percentage off their services. These awards can be given out on a random date and sent out by mail or presented to them on their next visit.

Gift card credit card programs, also referred to as affinity cards, reward customers for frequent use of their credit cards. They are also known as frequent buyer programs, customer loyalty programs, and gift cards.
Frequent buyer/user award programs are used to reward customers for their patronage. They can be given out by mail, emailed to the user’s inbox, or presented to the user when they next visit the store. The more they spend the more badges they will earn. This will also work on businesses because if you spend $500 a year there, you get a free appetizer or some free fries with your meal. They can give out the logo sticker on their website or by sending it out in the mail. This is a form of gift certificates that you can buy at your favorite store and get another one free. The amount of “free” gift cards can be almost unlimited.
differentiate a company’s products from its competitors
Some companies have an award program with every badge they can get and some can also be used as rewards themselves. They make their product more attractive to get more customers and make them keep coming back. One example is if you make a cookbook you can give people that order it a free gift that is in the cookbook. They can also give stickers that say “I love your cookbook.” It will make them come back for more and also make their friends know how great a cookbook it is. They can do this for clothing, shoes or books.
Another example is if you go to a gas station they sometimes have a game where they put different points on the pump you use. You can get free candy, free soda, free snacks or even by paying for gas get a little card that gives you points towards gas or even an item for your next purchase. It will make people come back for more and also bring their friends to the same station. They can do this for toys, videos, restaurants or even something like a free magazine.
promote word-of-mouth marketing
Word of mouth can be the main reason people go to a store and spend money. With word of mouth if a customer says that they went there and was satisfied, others may want to go. So by giving badges or stickers if they came back often they get promoted and put in front of other customers. They get to have great deals with the badges, which makes their friends want to come see what it is that got them those stickers. This is a really good idea because it gives the customer something special with out spending money themselves. They will feel better about going there rather than the person that went to a store for years and never had any discounts. Word of mouth is something that is really important to a business especially if it is a big one. If a business has word of mouth they will survive no matter what.
Promoting word-of-mouth marketing by giving badges or stickers can help a lot in getting more customers into the store. They will brag about the badges, which in turn will get people into their store. An incentive like this can bring successful results that the owner may not be expecting
Promotion of word-of-mouth marketing is important to a business in order to keep it alive. Customers and staff members like to have something special when they go into a store. They will be excited when they get the badges or stickers and brag about them to all their friends, which will drive them back into the store. This means that people from far away places may want to come see what it is that made them such a respected customer. The more they brag the more problems they may have having to come back again.
increase sales and profits
This is a good idea if you are starting a business because people that come to your store or buy from you have more loyalty, which makes them spend more money. They could earn free things, like free samples or a free souvenir for every time they come in. This will also work with if you go to the doctor’s office and you are given gifts on your birthdays, then the patient will come back and say “I want to be on that list when I am sick”. If the people already go there, all you have to do is give a button or a sticker.
The next thing is a good idea if you are getting a lot of people to come in. They could put a sign that says, “see George” and his proceeds will go to the town. After he dies they could put up another sign that says “George’s Family”. This way they don’t have to pay taxes on his money and it is also would keep him as an icon in the town. The money would be able to be used for things that help everyone.
The final thing is all about publicity. If you have the money to do something big, like a statue or a building, then you should. I say do something that people can remember you by. This will make them come back and want to go see what is new and exciting. The end result is that there will be more sales and more people spend money in your store.
