Loyalty rewards to retain loyal customers

Acquiring and keeping customers is critical to building a profitable, thriving business. Repeat customers help to ensure continuous growth for your business and are, therefore, essential to your success. As a result, loyalty programs are fast gaining traction worldwide as a means to encourage and retain repeat customers. In addition, these programs provide valuable customer personal information and buying behaviour data, which can be used in marketing campaigns.

Arch Loyalty features and functionality

A rewards program is a competitive strategy, essentially a relationship between store and loyal customer, where both parties gain from it. Rewarding loyalty creates an emotional connection – purchase decision-making is 30% rational and 70% emotional. When a customer chooses to shop at your store repeatedly, the value they get from the relationship outrivals the potential benefit they would get from a competitor.
