The key to any business success is maintaining a steady flow of customers, both new and returning. However the cost associated with obtaining new customers is significantly higher than maintaining existing customers, according to research seven times higher. (body)In retaining customers a loyalty program is often looked at as a key factor in creating repeat visits. Hence the philosophy behind a loyalty program is to boost a stagnated sales pattern and once implemented a sound program becomes an imperative part of a business success. There are many variations of loyalty programs with the two main concepts lifestyle based – targeted deal or points based – earn points and redeem for benefits. These types of specific programs create great customer satisfaction, stronger ties with your customers that are seen as an act of goodwill towards a customer, that you are actually interested in them and not just the increase in sales. You build knowledge of their likes and dislikes, creating a mutually beneficial relationship with your customers ensures a long one.
