How a Boost with Personalized Offers Wins Consumer Loyalty
Retailers who are getting consumer loyalty right maximize every interaction with each consumer to meet basic expectations for customer experience. However, those who are working towards true loyalty know that just covering the basics won’t be enough to set themselves up for the transformation of retail in the next decade.
Winning in the next decade requires starting early and it definitely pays to prepare. In 2016, Exchange Solutions was approached by a retailer with the challenge of future-proofing their brand. After many years running a loyalty program with consistent results, it was time to think beyond solid and steady to re-energize their most loyal customers with innovative solutions. It had become necessary to work on further bonding their loyal customers with their brand and set up for the next generation of retail loyalty.
It was imperative that all 3 milestones improve in order to maximize consumer engagement levels and increase overall value to the business. These were established as key behaviors that entrenched the member further with the brand.
To achieve expectations, the team decided to leverage the expertise of the advanced analytics group at Exchange Solutions to develop multi-faceted, hyper-targeted campaigns that were personalized to each individual member.

There is no true finish line when it comes to the race for consumer loyalty. Not only do retailers need to compete with the market, they must continuously beat their own expectations to innovate and remain relevant. Quick promotions or mass offers don’t differentiate your brand or engage your members long-term. To be a leader and be miles ahead of the competition, you must train to achieve a real win at consumer loyalty, measurable by the achievement of key loyalty behaviors.
