Asking Your Opinion on Storefront Social Media and Loyalty Programs

Are you a store owner in the U.S.? Do you know one? I want your opinion on a few things.

surveyI’m working up some data on small stores and payment plans and local loyalty programs for some friends of mine. As part of that, I’ve worked up a quick and easy survey — only 10 questions, no names, no email addresses, no sensitive data, just your opinion — that I’d like you to take.

Please click here to take that survey

I promise: It will take you only a minute or two.



Do You Know of Buy Local Frequent Buyer Programs That Work?

If you’re reading this, I’m asking your help. I’m curious about what local small businesses do about frequent buyer programs. I find that airlines, hotels, and rental car companies get my loyalty by giving me premiums, better service, and free services. I love the upgrades too.

But what about local programs? A lot of coffee shops and ice cream and the like have the classic punch cards, get the 10th one free and like that; but do you know of local programs that combine local merchants, like the hardware store, the dry cleaner, and health foods? A local buyer rewards program?

Are you a member of something like that? As a merchant or as a buyer? Is it working?

Please leave me a comment here if you’ve seen, participated in, or aware of any such programs that works.
