Today, everyone is talking about loyalty programs. Not us. We’d rather talk about loyalty. Programs can be an important part of this, but not the full solution. No matter how hard you try, you can’t manufacture loyalty, but you can earn it by carefully growing your relationship with the people who matter most to your business. We know you’re not looking for just loyalty to a card, a currency, a coalition or cash. You’re looking for loyalty to your brand.
Since 1929 when James Maritz pioneered the idea of the ‘gold watch’ as a way to reward loyal behaviors, we’ve been studying what makes people feel, think and choose as they do.
We believe that true brand loyalty is built and sustained by recognizing and optimizing the value exchange between the customer and the brand at every stage in the customer’s lifecycle. It grows from the emotional bond forged between a customer and a company when promises are fulfilled and is nurtured through our core solutions – Strategic Design, Loyalty Systems and Lifecycle Engagement.
