Loyalty Programmes: Nurtured, Engineered, or Both?

This article explores the concept of whether loyalty can be (should be?) nurtured or engineered, or a mix of the two. Industry experts weigh in on the question, and we look at the different methods of creating a successful programme. Picture the scene – Our founder, Hadie and her family are off to New York on their jollies. They’ve got free plane tickets thanks to their long-standing loyalty to their credit card company.

Who is interested in a Joyalty* Program?

*Joyalty A word I found in the book Brand Currency by Steve Susi. I loved it so much (for obvious reasons), I have borrowed it and redefined it to bring new meaning to loyalty programs and to inspire program managers to add a Joyalty* Program to their Loyalty Program! (For those brands who choose not to have a loyalty program, perhaps consider a Joyalty* Program instead).

This is great news, especially considering that soft benefits often generate a deeper and longer-lasting sense of brand affiliation, compared to customer relationships built on a purely transactional basis.

Loyalty programs – it’s time to eat some humble pie

It seems to me loyalty programs are going through a wave of popularity. In my view (yes confirmation bias exists here), some of the reasons I have been reflecting on, in no particular order are: 1. The ‘crumbling cookie’ and the urgency to gain zero- and first-party data 2. The rising cost of new customer acquisition and a swing towards investing in existing customer retention and growth
