How can Loyalty Schemes help your Brand?

Achille Traore

Brands are turning to loyalty schemes to drive growth, retention, and repeat business. But do these big claims hold up? And what exactly can loyalty programs accomplish?

  • Incentivising repeat purchases
    Offering rewards for loyalty is more than just a gesture of appreciation – it taps into the psychology of human behaviour. By providing incentives for repeat purchases, brands can trigger a sense of accomplishment in their customers, creating a desire to continue making purchases to earn rewards.

    Take for example the popular rewards program run by Starbucks, which offers free drinks, food items, and personalised discounts for accumulated stars earned through purchases. Today, the program has nearly 29 million active members worldwide and has driven over half of total sales for the coffee giant.

    Additionally, the concept of loss aversion plays a role in keeping retention rates high. People are more likely to act to avoid losing something they have worked to gain. A rewards program provides another reason for customers to stick with a brand because they will lose out if they switch.

  • Collecting valuable first-party customer data
    One of the biggest reasons for the popularity of loyalty schemes in 2023 is first-party data collection. Customer loyalty programs provide brands with insight into customer behaviour and purchase preferences that can be used to improve marketing and sales efforts. For example, brands can use data to offer more personalised shopping experiences, which improve customer satisfaction and retention rates.
  • Building trust between customers and brands
    An effective loyalty program can also improve the reputation of a brand and build trust. Brands can show their appreciation for their customers by offering rewards. This fosters positive feelings towards a brand and generates positive word-of-mouth marketing. Customers who feel appreciated and rewarded are more likely to become advocates, recommending the brand to their network and leaving glowing reviews online.
