- Loyalty programs are marketing tactics that reward customers for repeat business and encourage them to continue using a company's products or services.- There are four types of loyalty programs: point-based programs, tiered programs, paid programs, and value-based programs.- Point-based programs allow customers to accumulate points that can be redeemed for discounts or free gifts.- Tiered programs offer different rewards based on the customer's rank or membership level, encouraging them to spend more and advance to higher tiers.

What Are Loyalty Programs?

A loyalty program is a marketing tactic created to motivate customers to keep using the products or services of a company. It is the concept of rewarding one's customers for repeat business, therefore encouraging more of it. It lowers sales costs (as new customers are more costly than repeat customers), allows companies to profile customers more effectively, provides lots of data, nurtures companies' relationships with their customers, creates brand advocates and so much more.

What Are The 4 Types Of Loyalty Programs?

1. Point-Based Loyalty Programs

Point-based programs have very simple logic. They allow customers to accumulate points (usually with purchases) which they can redeem for discounts, cashbacks, free gifts, etc. With point-based programs, customers may also collect points by leaving reviews, posting on social media, gamified engagements, and they may even be gifted points for special days.

2. Tiered Loyalty Programs

Tiered customer loyalty programs are a kind of membership where clients receive various advantages based on their rank, with more rewards being offered to customers in higher program tiers. One of the most common forms we might come across with this type of program is when tiers are named after precious metals, such as gold tier, platinum tier, etc. Businesses often assign membership levels to groups based on certain parameters, such as sales or engagement, in an effort to encourage customers to spend more and advance to higher tiers for better benefits.

3. Paid Loyalty Programs

Paid loyalty programs, often known as fee-based loyalty programs, offer clients continuing benefits in exchange for a participation fee. These costs could be one-time or ongoing. When opted for, subscriptions can benefit organizations looking to retain customers for longer periods of time. In fact, according to a recent McKinsey analysis, consumers who participate in paid loyalty programs are 62% more likely to spend more money.

4. Value-Based Loyalty Programs

Through value-based programs, a business promises to provide a portion of its earnings to one or more charities, letting customers select the group that most closely matches their personal values. Unlike the other types of loyalty programs, value-based loyalty programs do not directly benefit customers but rather hold emotional value for them. These programs are often used with others to create more personal connections with customers.
