  2. 2. Please Consider This: In a typical 24 lane center. If just 25% of your open play customers visited your center just one more time, you would increase your revenue by almost $20,000. 10% of our customers bowl 24+ times and many are league based, than 90% must be “less frequent” open play bowler based. (BPAA stats) 32 league bowlers per lane X 24 = 788 bowlers (USBC stats Based on the fact, the center has 7900 open play bowlers; (1,975 bowlers spending $10 more one more time = $19,750). Latest USBC research showed that rewards and reminders were the Top 2 answers when consumers were surveyed as to what would make them bowl more often.
  3. 3. The Demographics Are In Our Favor • Matures (league bowlers) 38 million • Baby Boomers 80 million (non committal, anti league bowlers) • Generation X 37 million • Generation Y 78 million * *A monster untapped market that loves rewards, customer service and value.” • This is our open play market • It is the future of the sport and requires cutting edge marketing • This is not their Father’s bowling world

The WISE Marketer Sept 2008 “Rewards and loyalty programs are the most cost efficient ways to increase spending, visits and repeat purchases. In many circles, they are considered a ‘part of doing business’, rather than a marketing option”. The Wall Street Journal Aug 2008
  6. 6. Information is Key “We need systems in place to gather information. Because today’s internet world is impersonal. Those who gather information, and mine their data will dominate. The importance of data base building cannot be overstated.” Fred Kaplowitz
