What's the goal?
Our main goal is to identify and engage customers with personality and value to increase their purchase frequency. There are obstacles and opportunities that we both partner together to overcome and capitalize on. We want nothing more than to see you successful in your mobile marketing efforts because our success depends on your success. This blog post will focus on several things that can help increase that success rate.
Where the rubber meets the road...
This is it. This is where the rubber meets the road. This is where we kick it into high gear and MAKE success happen. Of course, the devil is in the details, so let's discuss a few of those details. Believe it or not, some of the simplest things can drastically affect our chances at a successful campaign. For instance, having a good steady wifi connection for your touch screen kiosk is of the utmost importance. If it's not connected we can't identify which customers are players. The connectivity of that kiosk to a solid wifi signal can affect our analytic reports which in turn affect how we can learn to better engage your customers.
A properly trained staff. We can assist with this. We can train them about the program, how it works, and what to say to get customers to join, but consistency will be key. Every customer should be made aware of your Loyalty Rewards Program and encouraged to sign up or check in on the kiosk. Without the staff's assistance your program might not perform at the level that it could.
The kiosk is constantly working on your behalf. Continually gathering data and compiling that data into insightful analytic reports for us. It's always keeping track of each of your customer's check-ins, rewards earned, rewards redeemed, sending inactive customer offers to get them back into your doors, and even funneling traffic to your Facebook page. It never asks for a break or a vacation day. The least we can do for this hard worker is supply it with a great wifi connection and have our staff direct the customers to it, don't you think?
The Tool Box
For some of our existing customers it may have been a while since you last thought of some of the other tools in our tool box. It's easy to get busy and be satisfied with the results we are currently getting but I wanted to remind you of a few things that we can implement to inject some fresh excitement and new engagement into your mobile marketing campaign.
Keyword- Don't forget about your keyword! You can put this on any print ad or other advertising you are doing to turn a static advertisement into a dynamic one. Introducing this text component can greatly increase your advertising efforts and ROI because it allows you to capture a customer's data from it instead of just hoping they see your ad. We can even set up special keywords for certain advertising efforts so that you can measure it's success. Speaking of keywords, how about setting up special keywords for different customer segments to market more effectively to just them? We can do that!
Loyalty Tiers- Don't forget you can set up different tiers of loyalty rewards. 3 check-ins earns a free hug but 6 check-ins earns a free kiss, etc. (This is only an example, I wouldn't recommend using hugs and kisses as loyalty rewards, unless you are just that close to your customers)
Sweepstakes, Trivia, & Polling- Yes, we can set up a text2win sweepstakes to help bolster customer engagement or to promote a new product or event. Use the polling feature to find out what your customers think about a new product or menu item!
Reward Redemption Mode- Some of our customers like to keep track of how many loyalty rewards are redeemed on their own but now we can set this function up in your kiosk to keep track of it for you. When a customer checks in and has reached the point where they earn a reward, the kiosk will ask if they would like to redeem it or save it for later. Redemptions will be shown on your weekly analytic report.
Automated Engagement- Most of our customers already use the Inactive Customer feature (which is extremely powerful) But we also have added several new features. Inactive Reminder: Send them a message reminding them to come back and patronize your business but do not provide a discount or offer. Reward Reminder: Sends them a message reminding them that they are only 1 check-in away from earning a reward, to entice them to come back into your business. Any of these can be set to be sent out automatically at a certain number of days from the customer's last activity on your kiosk.
