If you have ever been retweeted by someone you admired, you know how much a small, simple gesture can mean. If you are going to take the time to thank your customers for their loyalty, you might as well make it count.
Don’t have time for a three-course meal in the middle of the workday?
No worries. We asked nine entrepreneurs from the Young Entrepreneur Council (YEC) the following question:
“What’s a fun, entirely virtual way to reward loyal customers?”
Here’s what YEC community members had to say:
1. VIP Clubs
“We’ve helped clients set up VIP clubs for their best customers where the customers receive exclusive perks such as free shipping or special discounts. Model companies include Amazon (Prime) and Zappos (VIP members), which do a fantastic job of recognizing and incentivizing their best customers.” ~ Patrick Conley, Automation Heroes
2. Virtual Lunch
“If you can’t meet clients face to face, then video conferencing works. But it gets old — fast. A great way to reward your clients is to “do lunch” virtually. Call in a delivery order to their favorite restaurant and give them a special treat instead of a boring call.” ~ Steven Place, InvestingWithOptions.com
