Consumers Are Less Loyal Than Ever.

That's Why Retailers Are
Rethinking Loyalty Programs

Premium Loyalty™: WHAT’S THE BIG DIFFERENCE?


Traditional loyalty programs are free experiences focused on the transaction only – and customers get what they pay for. By contrast, customers pay a fee to join premium loyalty™ programs. In exchange, they receive tangible monetary benefits (like exclusive discounts and free shipping and returns), one-of-a-kind opportunities and members-only content.

Will they pay? If the benefits are good enough, absolutely – think about what Prime has done to your bottom line recently.

WHAT DOES THE RETAILER
GET OUT OF THE DEAL?

Plenty. In addition to an ancillary revenue stream, they generate increased enthusiasm and loyalty among their best customers, increased order frequency, increased AOV and decreased digital showrooming. Best of all, premium loyalty programs generate real, actionable data on the likes, wants and needs of truly engaged consumers from Day 1.

BUILDING PREMIUM LOYALTY IS HARD, UNLESS YOU HAVE THE RIGHT PARTNER.
