It’s that time of year where many business owners start to reflect on 2016. Did your business do any of the following:
- Reach every milestone
- Have memorable accomplishments
- Obtain goals that were written down
- Increase revenue
These are just a few things that you might reflect on when it comes to your business. With 2016 coming to an end and 2017 quickly approaching, it’s time to start thinking about what you want your business to accomplish next year. If you’re like any business owner, you want to see an increase in traffic and revenue. If so, I’ve got the perfect tool for you today: loyalty cards.
Loyalty cards provide a way for clients and customers to get rewarded for coming back time and time again. It shows that the business wants to take care of their customers while providing an incentive. This is a great way to get people into your store frequently.
Have an online business? Loyalty cards can work for you also! When mailing a product to a customer, place a loyalty card in their package. Rather than signing or stamping the card, provide a sticker to place on the card. You can create a unique sticker to stick on the loyalty cards so that it can’t be duplicated. Each time you have a repeat customer, don’t forget to send the sticker! The customer can then upload an image of their loyalty card once it’s full to redeem their prize.
The loyalty card I’m sharing with you today is of a faux coffee shop. I guess you could say if I could ever open a coffee shop, this would be it. After the 9th purchase, customers get a free cup of coffee on their 10th visit. The card has circles to show where to place the coffee bean stickers, what the customer will receive once their card is full, and the other side displays the store information.
This is just one fun and simple way to get repeat and new customers through your door. Here are few reward ideas to place on the loyalty cards for customers:
- Give a certain percentage off
- Buy 1, get 1
- Free item
- $10 off next purchase
There are plenty of ways to customize and create your own loyalty cards. Now is the time to start focusing on getting more customers in your store or online before 2017 arrives.
