Program users can share with and refer their friends on almost any social platform with a push of a button, making information available to their social connections instantly. Loyalty program mobile apps bestow program users with the power to share easily, generating a higher level of customer engagement and social activity.
Customer retention becomes easy when businesses stay in touch with customers to make them feel special. The ability to push offers that can be shared and redeemed instantly by showing the coupon code at a store turns robust loyalty programs into customer engagement marketing through mobile. Such happy customers stay with a brand develop long-term loyalty. With smartphones always with them as they shop and travel, custom mobile apps generate huge customer engagement and bring to customers the excitement of receiving offers on the go. Easy-to-play, interesting games on phones keep customers further engaged and coming back for more. Gamification has created another touchpoint that businesses can utilize effectively to communicate with customers and present their products and services.
