    Default Framing a Reward is as important as the Reward itself

    We've had a lot of questions about loyalty and rewards programs. Feedback is mixed depending on who you ask. This article suggests approaching it from a different angle. Not according to the offer, but according to what kind of engagement it creates overall.

    Here’s one idea. Instead of asking, “What rewards should we give away?” ask “How should we give away a reward?” It might not be the reward per se, but how the reward is framed, and the steps customers must take to obtain the reward, that matters.

    Has anyone tried a rewards program? Did it work? If not, did you learn anything about why it failed that you can share with the group?

    One of the most effective “reward” program I’ve seen is “Kohls Bucks”. Kohls is a mid price dept store. For every $ 50 you spend they give you a $ 10 certificate for your next purchase.

    Kohls happens to be convenient for me, so I do shop there. I wouldn’t go out of my way to go there just because of the reward. However, whenever I get my “reward” of $ 10 or $ 20 I feel compelled to go back to spend it. Again, because it is so convenient not because of the reward itself. So of course I go back, spend more than the reward and then get new rewards. It works on me and many of the local shoppers. My wife and her sisters always have some Kohls bucks they need to use!

    I assume other dept stores have similar rewards.

    Perfect example of exactly what the article is talking about.

    Too many times people get caught up in trying to make the offer or giveaway so spectacular in hopes that the offer itself will draw more users/customers instead of catering an offer to increase engagement...which in tune probably increases referrals.

    I've seen is "Kohls Bucks". Kohls is a mid cost dept store. For each $ 40 you spend they give you a $ 10 declaration for your next buy

    Loyalty reward is the usual one that business always give to their clients in which every purchase has points that will be converted to a gift.

    In any case, at whatever point I get my "reward" of $ 10 or $ 20 I feel constrained to return to spend it. Once more, since it is so advantageous not on account of the reward itself. So obviously I return, spend more than the reward and afterward get new rewards. It deals with me and a large number of the neighborhood customers. My better half and her sisters dependably have a few Kohls bucks they have to utilize!

    Too often individuals become involved with attempting to make the offer or giveaway so astounding with the expectation that the offer itself will draw more clients/clients as opposed to providing food an offer to increment engagement...which in order most likely builds referrals.
