Everyone loves to be paid for doing something they were already going to do anyway, especially in business. When you get a physical (or online) reward, your brain releases a neurotransmitter called dopamine. When it comes from DNA, that makes you feel good. That is what makes incentivized marketing so effective.
If you want to build your brand or start a new business, marketing is critical. You cannot just place any old product out there and expect results. Sure you might have a few people to join your mailing list. However, if you are not using incentive marketing effectively you may never see those numbers. Instead, you are wasting your marketing dollars.
Many marketers do not realize how powerful incentive marketing can be. Think of all the things you can offer people who sign up for your free trial. Offer them a special deal, a bonus, free shipping, or even just a conversation with an expert. If you offer them something valuable for nothing, they will be much more likely to stay with your brand.
Another way incentive marketing works are by providing real-world rewards for people who do your customer service job well. This can be as simple as giving them a thank you sticker if they call in a question or helping them take out the trash. Clients love these real-world rewards because they make them feel important and valued.
Social media marketing is one of the most powerful incentives for customers. With social media marketing, you can use offers like contests, specials, and blogging to earn rewards for each client you sign up for. Just be sure to keep track of how many people actually click through from your blog to your website.
One of the most successful incentive marketing programs I have ever worked with involved Amazon Prime. At first, I didn't think it would work because I was a little concerned that I would need to spend a lot of time promoting my program to get as many people as I could into Amazon Prime. But once I got the hang of it I found that I actually didn't have to spend any time promoting my program. All I did was sign up for a free account and then sent out emails with links to Amazon Prime. It ended up being so successful that I had to quit my job to work full time in order to keep earning as much money as possible from Amazon Prime.
If you are interested in using incentive marketing strategies to increase the number of loyalty programs that your business receives, you should talk to your local chamber of commerce. Chances are that there is a large community of people who use your coffee shop on a daily basis. Many of them will be looking to get additional discounts or gift cards from your coffee shop so that they can save some money. In addition, you may be able to develop an affiliate marketing program where you sell other people's products. The point is that you want to have as many customers that want to get something out of your coffee shop as possible.
The goal of every incentivized marketing strategy is to help your customer get something out of your business. Think about how well your current customers are doing financially and also think about how many customers would be willing to spend money at your coffee shop if you offered them an incentive program for doing so. You can also make the incentive marketing strategy even more effective by offering customers special deals and promotions every so often. The key is to remember that you are always trying to maximize your customer base in order to maximize your profits.
