Toronto, Ontario (PRWEB) November 29, 2012
Small businesses can now measure up to the “Big Boys” with a one-of-a-kind loyalty program that integrates mobile digital applications to reward customers. Ferret Card is designed for merchants, by merchants who take social media marketing, growing businesses and customer loyalty to the next level. Now, gaining customer loyalty has become price-less.
With the increasing popularity of daily deal websites, small business owners are forced to compete with other low price offers. As we see this trend gaining more and more publicity, a new wave needs to come into effect to help these businesses. Ferret Card’s CEO, Dr. Annie Lim, states “We are the one and only mobile loyalty rewards program that supports small and medium sized businesses in Canada”. Ferret Card provides a long-term solution by redefining and setting a new standard for loyalty programs everywhere. By establishing a completely interactive and customizable loyalty program, Ferret Card’s platform ensures local businesses the opportunity to reach out, reward, and retain their valuable customers.
Merchants themselves now have the opportunity to completely customize their profile and adjust to market trends. They can use the exclusive CRM platform to gain powerful insights on their customers’ spending habits, background demographics, and gauge how well the loyalty program is working for them as a merchant.
Seamless Mobile App Integration: Future of Loyalty Programs
The innovative mobile application runs on Android and Apple operating systems and allows customers to connect with local stores and share with their friends in real time, making paper crunch cards a thing of the past. With the Ferret Card app, a consumer’s phone automatically turns into a virtual rewards card, allowing customers to earn stamps just by showing their
personalized QR Code. Backed up by the networking power of Facebook, the Ferret Card member app allows consumers to share their rewards with their friends and stay connect and up-to-date with where their friends are shopping.
Unique Stamp System: Rewarding Customers More
Every customer deserves to get more than their money’s worth. Whenever a customer shops at a Ferret Card merchant, they earn gold stamps. With the unique Facebook integration, gold stamp customers can choose up to five Facebook friends with whom they want to share silver stamps as first-time customers. This method consequently redefines word of mouth advertising and creates an incentive for prospective customers to visit that store, successfully building the merchant’s consumer base and instilling a sense of community among Ferret Card members.
With the recent introduction of diamond stamps (which will be awarded to customers who visit premium merchants), consumers will have the opportunity to redeem their diamond stamps for exclusive prizes like an iPad mini, iPhone 5, Ray Ban Wayfarer sunglasses and more available at Ferret Card’s virtual store. Just like the gold and silver stamps, these exclusive diamond stamps can also be accumulated and maximized by selecting 5 Facebook friends.
