Why every digital rewards program needs an app

In the rewards space, digital has been growing fast as a preferred distribution channel.

 

In fact, for convenience, immediacy and just plain preference for all-things digital among certain generations (you know who you are) digital rewards are a must-have in any reward mix.

Enter a global pandemic and we all have even more reason to leverage no-touch, digital delivery at every opportunity. And the best way to deliver digital rewards is with an app.

The benefits of digital rewards

First, the basics. Rewards program fulfilment costs add up, no matter what kind of rewards you’re delivering. Big volume merchandise rewards mean big courier costs and there’s no way around that. Digital rewards are – well – digital and a fraction of the fulfilment cost of merchandise. So lower overall cost is the first big plus.

And on the softer side of rewarding, instant delivery adds surprise and delight sparkle to the reward experience. Think about the multiple customer touch points where a digital ping, announcing an individual special offer, would generate very warm feelings for your brand. Those are just the sort of loyal customer connections you want to nurture regularly.

And then there are the brand opportunities. Many of your customers, sales partners and employees are continually and simultaneously connected to multiple platforms – working, playing, chatting and sharing. Particularly sharing.

We all know how easy (and fun) it is to share, which means a positive, personal rewards experience will very likely be shared, liked, shared again and turned into collective celebration. How’s that for the kind of word-of-mouth brand reach dreams are made of? And much of this activity happens on mobile. So, it follows that an app makes the whole experience easier, faster and better.

If you’re not in on the digital action yet, it’s time. Here’s how to Advance your brand reach with easy, instant digital vouchers.
