A Social Media Remote Control For Loyalty

97% of loyalty programs reward participants for spend. Yet, 84% of consumers said they would spend more with companies that reward activities other than spending. Loyalty and consumer engagement is evolving. Brands are beginning to recognize the desire of consumers to engage on their terms, and the need to evolve and modernize their loyalty programs. By giving consumers a social media remote control to participate and earn, brands can drive deeper engagement, valuable data, and spend.
​Join Chirpify's CEO Chris Teso and Columbia’s Lindsay Mcann, as they discuss how Social Media Loyalty programs work, and how Columbia has extended Greater Rewards to enable their members to be rewarded for their brand advocacy, not just spend.
Key Takeaways:
  • - Why brands are enabling social media loyalty
  • - How social media loyalty works
  • - How to measure the ROI of social media loyalty
  • - Columbia Sportswear's social loyalty strategy – why now/challenges with current program
  • - How Columbia Sportswear "socialized" their existing members, and acquired new members through social media loyalty
