5 loyalty apps to drive more sales

Cultivating relationships with consumers who become loyal clients is imperative for independent businesses. Loyal customers are the result of serious efforts on the part of the retailer or restaurateur, and they don’t just appear overnight. Fortunately, some smart businesses who know how important loyalty is for customer retention, designed some apps to make this easier. Here are five exceptional ones to check out:

AppCard

AppCard makes automating marketing campaigns easy, because punch cards just don’t cut it anymore. With a program like AppCard, retailers and restaurateurs alike can keep track of every promotional campaign with a single dashboard view. AppCard syncs easily with POS systems, and starts aggregating data right away.

Perkville

Imagine an app that shows you results with easy-to-understand metrics such as: new members from referrals per month, number of Facebook posts, number of tweets, and overall return on investment. Perkville does all of this and more. It encourages engagement over social media by rewarding customers for posting about you and helps you retain customers by offering them points they can redeem at your business.
