    • Promotion is Less Risky than Discounts, Rebates or Free Goods If Your Present Gross Margin Is: 5% Cut Price 1% 5% 10% 15% 20% 10% 15% 20% 25% 30% 40% You Need an Increase in Unit Sales Of … 25.0% 11.1% 7.1% 5.3% 4.2% 3.4% 2.6% 100.0% 50.0% 33.3% 25.0% 20.0% 14.3% 200.0% 100.0% 66.7% 50.0% 33.3% 300.0% 150.0% 100.0% 60.0% 316.7% 172.7% 90.5%
    • Promotion versus Discounts or Rebates or Free Goods         Discounts and promotional allowances used repeatedly become ‘part of the price’, and appeal is lost. Hence, why many automobile companies have gone to a everyday price versus discounts or rebates A true incentive provides not only an inducement, but adds excitement, interest, drama and a sense of urgency. Discounts often mean ‘giving away’ the product and ‘doing this a new way’ each time develops into a vicious cycle. Discounts simply cannot generate the appeal and motivation as can merchandise or travel awards. A dealer or distributor accustomed to buying on the basis of discounts is vulnerable to your competitors’ inducements. Discounts are often passed on to the end-user at a lower retail price. Discounts can be easily matched by competitors Non-cash incentives represent minimal investment because the program funding is accrued basically from increased sales or purchases. If cash/rebates/free goods/discounts are such a great motivators, why aren’t they selling more or buying more?
    • Why Incentives Work  Incentive programs can increase performance by up to 44 percent in teams and 25 percent in individuals, according to “Incentive, Motivation, & Workplace Performance,” a study by the International Society of Performance Improvement.  Fewer than one in four American workers is working at full potential; half of all workers do no more than directly asked; and 75 percent of employees say they could be more effective in their jobs, according to research by the Public Agenda Forum.  70 percent of unhappy customers abandon vendors because of poor service, according to the Forum Corp.  A 5 percent increase in customer retention can increase lifetime profits from a customer by 75 percent, according to The Loyalty Effect (Harvard Business School Press), by Frederick Reichheld.  Some 65 percent of executives believe that incentive programs using travel and merchandise are more memorable than those using cash; 60 percent of executives believe that sources of merchandise and travel are more helpful in creating an incentive program than are sources of cash, and 57 percent of executives believe that bonus payments are often regarded by employees as something they are due, according to the most recent “Survey of Motivation and Incentive Applications” by the Incentive Federation.
    • Incentive Strategy Performance with Incentive (Move the Bar)
    • Incentive Strategy  The Target Audience for Incentives should be the Mid-Range Performers.  This is the biggest audience and can have the most impact on overall objectives  Usually a company has: • • • • • 5-7% Top Performers 80-90% Mid-Range Performers 5-7% Poor Performers (short-term) Performance will increase at most levels Variable to market conditions (5-30%+)
    • Sales Contest Length  Based on Sales Cycle  Then double Promotion Period  Flex Period Promotions: Allows Channel Partners to run the promotion to meet their schedule
    • Budget Rules of Thumb  Sales: 1-2% if product margins less than 30% and 2-3% if product margins greater than 30%  Incremental Sales 4-7% if product margins less than 30% and 7-10% if product margins greater than 30%  Trial Offers can range from 5% to 20% of Sales
    • Tracking Sales/Purchases o Sales Data  Track Sales by Distributor  Sometimes get sales by DSR o Claim Prize  Claim Form and Attached Invoice/PO  Claim Form and then we verify by Distributor Sales Data  Send in UPC’s  Payout when Distributor Pays Bills

    • Merchandise vs. Cash  Cash satisfies basic needs which does not motivate behavior.  Cash is the currency of compensation and pricing. Use cash and it becomes part of an individual’s compensation package or a customer’s pricing program. Invariably, if you offer a cash incentive to any audience, internal or external, it becomes a benchmark against which future compensation and pricing issues get measured, leading to a condition known as “program addiction.” Because cash quickly gets mingled with other compensation or expenses (in the case of customer cash expenses)  Major Oil Company Study Summary  Non-cash outperformed cash by 46%  Non-cash: 37% increase in product mix  ROI  Cash: -20%  Every $1 invested = an $0.80 return  Non-cash: +31%  Every $1 invested = a $1.31 return
