“… at its basic level, customer loyalty is a balance between the individual’s
willingness to give customer loyalty and a company’s ability to earn loyalty.”
- Anonymous, Direct Marketing
This statement describes the key aspects of what needs to happen on the part of the customer and the company for a loyalty program to be successful. When executed properly, a customer loyalty program can be the single most successful way to differentiate your business from your competition, optimize customer loyalty programs by increasing their return on investment, and improve customer communications, brand loyalty and overall customer satisfaction.

That's why customer relationship management (CRM) tools are vital to maintaining a competitive edge in today's crowded restaurant marketplace – and that's why you’ve chosen a customer loyalty program.
A loyalty program’s scope is broad – traversing in-store operations, corporate systems, existing customer purchasing habits and trends, as well as a new, previously untapped consumer base. Aloha eFrequency provides a restaurant-focused powerhouse of tools that reach all facets of your organization, all of which are designed for ease of use, yet rich in features to ensure that your loyalty program reaches its full potential of increased sales and profitability.

It all starts with the member card. Members use their cards in your stores to get credit in your customer loyalty program.
Some Goal Oriented Options:
Now that you have configured your McLoone’s Friends & Family Loyalty Program using eFrequency, your customers are signing up, and they are starting to earn rewards.

eFrequency offers you several web-based tools to manage your eFrequency program:
Database tracking is a powerful tool that can carry brands a long way if it is used properly. While recognizing and welcoming the profitable outcomes, companies should not overlook other tools and efforts such as personal contact and customer service. Ideally, brands should strive to optimize all components by using them to complement each other.
The need for brands to find a way to differentiate themselves beyond price and product lies in the competitive edge inherent in the ability to build relationships with their best customers and reward them for their loyalty.

One of the great challenges to a loyalty program occurs between the sixth and 24th months of operation. It's in this period that the excitement and anticipation created by the launch wanes and customers and the company's CFO start to measure the program and its results.
Consider these five critical factors during after the initial push of your program launch promotion:
The factors above are critical considerations when operating a new loyalty program. Keeping them in mind as you work with your loyal customers will help maximize the value of the program to your business. During the first months and year of a loyalty program, a profile of your company's best customers will emerge. That profile and those individual customers will help the business build retention and grow more profitable and ensure active, positive participation.
It takes a lot of planning to create a loyalty program, including thinking of ways to educate staff about it and ways to garner customer participation. Once the planning is over, the key messages of keeping staff informed and customer participation top of mind need to be reinforced constantly.
There's a reason the first two years are critical. When a loyalty program launches, better customer retention usually tops the list of objectives. Better retention has a direct tie to profits. Bain and Co. reports that with respect to increasing retention "...the impact of retaining 5 percent of your customers can result in 25 percent to 85 percent increase in profit over time ...“
It is critical to build a strong database management team.
Measurement is about control. When planning promotions for the most loyal customers, there is a tendency to want to include everyone. However, without a control group, the results will not necessarily drive good business decisions.
In creating a loyalty program and asking customers for personal data (name, address, phone number, e-mail address, etc.) the company likely has made privacy promises to the customers. Even if no promises were made, there likely is an implicit trust.
The features that make a loyalty program successful are its ability to develop relationships between the brand and the customer, along with the data gathering features that help it know, understand and reward customers.
To develop a successful loyalty program, the following criteria has been tested:
