These days it seems anywhere you shop there is a customer rewards program. Not just the grocery stores and coffee shops, but also at the movies, and local small businesses. While a membership program is a great way to encourage regular pampering, a customer reward program is also a great way to incentivize new clients or repeat customers who may not visit as often, to return more regularly. When a customer finds a service they love, keeping those customers happy becomes vitally important. Not to mention, according to SmallBizTrends.com, repeat customers tend to spend 33% more. In the wellness space, we found customers not only spend more over time, but they spend more per visit. Even my local single center nail salon provides a small discount after a certain dollar amount has been reached. It’s not a lot, but it keeps me coming back to the same place with great service, while enjoying a little added perk. It even makes me opt for more add-on services per visit knowing I’ll get to that discount sooner. I’ve tried other nail salons, but keep coming back to the one with the friendly staff and the rewards I have come to enjoy. Customer reward programs don’t have to be super complicated. Something as simple as a punch card that offers a free service or a discount off next their purchase is enough to keep customers happy.
