(PRWEB) October 17, 2013
In the past two years the retail industry has enjoyed healthy loyalty program membership growth of 26.7%, reaching 2.65 billion members. But, closer inspection reveals decreasing member engagement. Many retail loyalty programs are undifferentiated, lacking value, and require an update.
What can retail loyalty program managers do to overcome poor program performance and reengage their customers?
On Oct. 29 at 1 p.m. EDT, Loyalty 360 will host a webinar titled, “Quick Tips: How to Overcome Poor Loyalty Program Performance and Reengage Your Members,” which will be presented by Kobie Marketing.
During this “quick tips” webinar, attendees will learn:
According to Bram Hechtkopf, VP of Business Development & Marketing, Kobie Marketing, “Member engagement is far more critical to a program’s long term health than high membership rates. Programs must look for any indicators that show a decline in engagement levels, and act before it’s too late.”
Fellow speaker David Andreadakis, VP of Loyalty Strategy, Kobie Marketing, will join Bram as they discuss their insight and experiences in the featured webinar.
“The difference between having a loyalty program and being committed to loyal customers is quite large,” shared Mark Johnson, CEO and CMO of Loyalty 360 – The Loyalty Marketer’s Association.
“Brands realize loyalty is the fulcrum of all marketing, customer experience, and engagement efforts to create a unique and mutually beneficial relationship between the product or brand and the consumer. The fact is humans are limited in the number of products that they can be loyal to, and to be part of that finite consideration set should be paramount to all marketers.”
Marketers are invited to join Loyalty 360 and Kobie Marketing on Oct. 29 at 1:00 p.m. EDT to learn how to upgrade a retail customer loyalty program and reengage customers.
