  • 13. JUSTIFICATIONS  Mounting competition;  Aging demographic customer base;  Important for synergies between day spas and resort.  Customer Retention  Indirect customer Acquisition Not having a loyalty program would mean “we are too good, we don’t need your business and we’ll be fine whether you come back or not”.
  • 14. BASIS FOR ACCUMULATION OF POINTS  Number of Nights;  Number of Visits;  Dollar amount Spent. The other question that worried them was whether and how to reward guests who had already shown substantial loyalty?
  • 15. REWARDS CAN LOOK LIKE:This could be done in the following ways: Enhanced Guest Recognition; Tangible Benefits; Special Guest Benefits. Wrigley was more inclined towards Guest recognition. Others believed it to be problematic and favored tangible rewards other than “tacky price discounts”.
  • 16. IN WHICH FORMTo grant certificates redeemable at potentialpartners (e.g. Neiman Marcus, Tiffany’s) after acertain patronage.whether it would help build loyalty for resort.To select partners in a way that could sustainthe prestige of the program and the brand.Their loyalty program had to be “classy &understated”. They wanted to change person’sbehavior but didn’t want it to be “crass”.
