Loyalty and Reward Programs

Loyalty and Reward Programs

Millions of Americans are enrolled in loyalty or reward programs in hotels, supermarkets, drugstores and restaurants, and there are two major challenges:

  • As the outlets with loyalty programs tend to reward only the customers who are already loyal, the participation percentage is on the lower side.
  • Customers find it difficult to be loyal, due to other chains and outlets offering great discounts as well.

This Endowed Progress Effect is successfully deployed in games like Candy Crush Saga, and websites like Paypal and LinkedIn, which show a prominent progress indicator, with easy to find ways for completing the next milestone. These apps and games use social pressure tactics and freebies to lure the customers into providing more information or buying a premium service.

Once the customer sees that time and energy has been spent, and progress made, they are less likely to drop out.
