Hi and welcome back to the newsletter.
Creating a positive experience with each sale is important. Fostering a long and engaging interaction with your customers will result in loyalty, repeat purchases, 5-star reviews, and referrals.
This month I'll discuss Customer Loyalty software tools that will help you reward your customers and keep them coming back for more.
Build customer loyalty by earning points

Bring more customers into your store
Fivestars is the nation's largest rewards program for small and medium-sized businesses with brick-and-mortar locations. It's trusted by more than 15,000 local businesses to automatically bring in more customers and keep them coming back.
All your customer loyalty interactions are powered by Fivestars Connect software, which can run on a Fivestars-provided tablet or directly on your point-of-sale (POS) system. Customer loyalty is tracked by having each customer enter their phone number with each purchase. You decide the rewards they can redeem, like a free coffee.

Improve customer loyalty using gift cards
