How to increase customer loyalty digitally?

Virtual discount cards Apple Wallet and Google Pay How to increase customer loyalty digitally?

The market for goods and services today is filled with competing offers. The creation of loyalty programs is one of the best ways to attract regular customers. The marketing strategy of retail and chain stores, automotive services, cafes and restaurants, sports clubs, cinemas, and other institutions is increasingly focused on individual interaction with the customer. And electronic loyalty cards open the most simple and personal format of customer relationships.

The highest rate of world change dictated by the digital age requires regular review of existing business strategies. Many ways of attracting new visitors, as well as retaining regular customers that seemed modern just a few years ago, are outdated.

Our smartphones are full of promotional SMS messages, email clients record the flow of letters from e-mail marketers, and dozens of credit cards, discount coupons, and loyalty cards are stored in wallets. Therefore, the rejection of the stereotypical “plastic” for bonus offers and the traditional way of sending offers about promotions and discounts is a plus and competitive advantage of any company.
