  1. AI-POS 5 Tips for Best Restaurant Loyalty Program Apps Who doesn't like getting freebies every now and then? Customers have their favorite cafe, hotel, or restaurant and, let's are honest; it is often nice to feel rewarded once you are a daily guest somewhere. During this blog, we glance at five alternative ways to make the best restaurant loyalty apps. Loyalty programs are an excellent thanks to stretch the reach of a limited marketing budget, particularly if you’re running a little business. It’s a win-win situation: your customer earns benefits (points, discounts, and special offers) by being a return-patron, and you get repeat customers, building rapport, loyalty, and even increasing their average spend. Implementing successful loyalty program apps for restaurants is often tricky, so here are five tips for creating your loyalty program worthwhile for both your business and your customer. 1. Make it easy to use It’s essential to form your loyalty program simple to know (in terms of exactly what the rewards are), and straightforward to use. With numerous loyalty programs within the world, for everything from fuel to online shopping, most diners will have a wallet full of plastic cards already. An easier solution could be to retain their loyalty details on your own system, attached to the customer’s mobile number, or by providing a digital ‘card’ which will be uploaded to an app that permits customers to ‘carry’ their ‘card’ on their phone. Digital also gives you a chance to retain insights into customers’ spending habits. This information is often incredibly valuable to your staff as they struggle to supply your loyal guest with an impressive dining experience - for instance, reserve their favorite table or AI-POS

  2. AI-POS create targeted campaigns that provide buy-one-get-one offers to those that order particular dishes again and again. 2. Confirm your FOH staffs is on board It is often embarrassing for patrons to undertake to redeem a loyalty bonus only to be met by front-of-house staff who don’t skill to process the claim. It’s essential that your FOH staffs are aware of: the program and its benefits checking whether guests are existing members encouraging new customers to hitch the scheme how to process claims with none fuss - confirm your reward scheme is definitely compatible together with your POS system. You can also incentivize your staff for sign-ups – create a pacesetter board and reward those that are signing new members up particularly well. 3. Create a sign-up benefit It’s far easier to create a database of loyal customers if you include a signing bonus. Social media engagement also provides you with a chance to interact with this customer outside of their visit – re-share their post, and respond in a friendly and personable way. 4. Include offers Loyalty rewards apps for restaurants that give an initial benefit then accrue points per dollar on spending work well. A full 73% of diners report that they think point’s accumulation may be a ‘very important’ or ‘extremely important’ feature during a restaurant loyalty program. What works even better than point’s accumulation is to mix this with strategically timed and targeted benefits for your loyal customers that aren’t available to non-members? These could include: a free birthday item an off-menu option available for the asking bonus points periods (days/weeks) tiered loyalty programs to reward customers who visit often or spend large amounts by giving them more points per dollar. Gift certificates also are an excellent reward item, because it gives diners the liberty to order whatever they need. 5.

  3. AI-POS Ask your staff whether or not they find it easy enough to register new loyal customers, and to trace or redeem related rewards. Are there any particular frustrations or pieces of feedback they receive from customers? New call-to-action you can get feedback from spending patterns and data attached to your customers’ accounts what’s the redemption rate once you email out a special offer? What proportion more do people spend once they get a freebie, or when they’re upgraded to a ‘gold’ loyalty card? It’s also important to travel straight to the source – by email or in conversation, ask your customers what they find the foremost rewarding, and kit your program to fill gaps and supply what the customer actually finds most meaningful. Setting up a loyalty program during a restaurant can bring your most precious customers back again and again. Making it an enormous success, however, requires tons of thought from you when setting it up. It also takes tons of effort from your staff, to form the scheme worthwhile for patrons.
