A loyalty program will help keep the loyalty of your best clients, and increase the loyalty of the rest. Here are 5 steps to help you create a successful loyalty campaign!
First things first! What do you want to achieve from your salon loyalty system? More customers? More visits? Make sure you set your ambitions from the start and set determine what your goal is. For example, you intend to increase client visits from 7 to 6 weeks and increase client spend by 5%.
Who is your audience? New customers, existing customers, drifters, or maybe even non-returners. Loyal clients spend more and visit more regularly. Loyalty systems are not just about points and ease of admin – their purpose is to reward and incentivize. Make your loyalty system seem exclusive and incentivize your client visits. Offer value-added services, products or something as simple as a glass of champers on every visit.
