New Content: Guide To Incentive/Loyalty Programs For Florists
One of the most popular floral marketing features in FloristWare has always been the points-based loyalty incentive marketing feature. We're probably all familiar with this kind of program, research shows that nearly 1/2 of all credit card users in the US utilize a points-based rewards program and countless retailers, gas stations, etc. also offer their own programs. We also know that they work – that kind of adaptation means that the results are real and meaningful.
Such programs are also relatively rare in the real flower business. Some florists have offered "buy a dozen dozen, get a dozen free" type programs where customers that made more than twelve purchases could get a dozen roses free, but at a reward rate this incredibly generous (compared to the 2% reward rate common to most points programs).
At the recent Floral Summit hosted by Golden Rose a group of florists gathered to share their real-world experiences with this kind of program and discuss how accepted best practices could be better integrated. The resulting discussion is now available a free downloadable PDF that we hope will help more florists enjoy the benefits of this type of marketing.
