Enabling Points Conversion
The results indicated that point-based loyalty programs were a norm across global brands in the loyalty industry with 71% of programs adopting this system.
Interestingly enough though, only 5% of these programs actually enabled their members to convert their loyalty points into other brand loyalty points or currencies. This could be one of the reasons explaining how some brands with a point-based system score a higher member engagement rate over other brands that adopt one.
Tier Systems and Redemption Options
With many brands trying to boost their member engagement and spending, it is only logical that different strategies are employed to achieve these goals. One of these is the use of tier systems. Not only do they incentivize higher member earn rates, but members also engage more with your program as a means to reach the next tier and unlock extended value.
